Marking the 60th anniversary of the Rolling Stones, the rock band's iconic bright red lips and tongue logo will be released as a "LEGO Art" set on June 1.
Along with the 1,998-piece tribute, fans can enjoy an accompanying soundtrack with almost an hour of tailor-made content, including an interview with John Pasche, the graphic designer who created the tongue logo in 1970.
"Who would have believed, 50 odd years ago… that design would be made into a LEGO piece," said Pasche after seeing the "LEGO Art" set for the first time.
"Since the tongue logo is one of the most recognized logos, our biggest challenge was to figure out how we could get the LEGO Art design as close to the original as possible," said Fiorella Groves, Design Manager at the LEGO Group. "In the spirit of being more Rock 'n' Roll, the full spectrum of LEGO bricks have been used to capture the organic curves that John created."
The "LEGO Art" Rolling Stones set will be available beginning June 1 from LEGO.com and all LEGO retailers.
