And with that, what was probably the last June novelty from LEGO was presented: The LEGO Architecture 21058 Pyramid of Cheops will also be released next month and should be a real highlight for many fans of the Egyptian pyramids. We introduce you to the LEGO pyramid here in detail.
The set has just been listed in the LEGO online shop and all the pictures have also been added there. At the same time, LEGO also presented the set via social media. The Cheops pyramid, as the set will be officially called in Germany, consists of 1476 partsappears on June 1, 2022 to a RRP of 139.99 euros at LEGO and everywhere in stores. You can get it in the JB Toys shop right now 15% discount on your pre-order and you can also get a free gift as part of this current promotion.
General information and pictures
As is usual with LEGO Architecture sets, the Cheops pyramid comes in a black box and is therefore an 18+ set that is specifically aimed at adult LEGO fans. While in the past significantly more LEGO Architecture sets were released each year, LEGO has now reduced the number of buildings and is concentrating on fewer, often more detailed sets from the series.
All information about the set at a glance:

- Parts: 1476
- Minifigures: –
- Set dimensions: 35 cm x 20 cm x 32 cm (width x height x depth)

The special thing about the set is that the set can be presented in two different versions: one with the pyramid still under construction and one with the final pyramid “put over it”. In addition to the actual pyramid, the site on the Nile with the two small pyramids, two mortuary temples, various sphinx statues and an obelisk are being built here. In addition, the “Village of the Workers” and a felucca (an ancient sailing ship) may also be built in front of the pyramid.
Strictly speaking, you don’t get a whole pyramid, but only a “half pyramid”, because on the back you can see a kind of sectional model of the pyramid, which also shows the inside and the burial chambers located there as well as the largest corridors in the heart of the pyramid. The golden top of the white pyramid is new in metallic goldso that it shines beautifully.
For a complete pyramid you can take the set twice and connect the two halves together. But then the Nile and the village at the foot of the pyramid are also double.
This is the official LEGO product description:
