Hi, I am 15 years old and I'm a big fan of British band named Coldplay, so I decided to recreate them with LEGO bricks! I said that I will be inspired by the video of a song A Sky Full of Stars, whose video you will find below. It is my first project on LEGO Ideas.
Now I'm going to present a short history of the band.
Coldplay play rock music and have been on stage for 24 years - they started as Pectoralz, later they were called Starfish and since 1998 the band is called Coldplay. The band consists of: Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion. They released together 8 albums that immediately became famous. Coldplay won many awards: 9 BRIT Awards statuettes, 5 MTV Video Music Awards and 7 Grammy awards. In total, they sold over 100 million albums. They have over 10 billion views on YouTube. Undoubtedly, it is one of the best known and most liked bands in the world.
So, why I decided to base on this song? Because I am a big fan of A Sky Full of Stars song, which is one of the greatest hits of the band and its video is unique:
Now some general information about the set.
Includes 4 minifigures of musicians with all the music equipment they have in the video, a sidewalk with the band's logo and Coldplay covers path called Albums Path, and a wall with Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" words from the video. On the other side of the wall there are detachable hangers for the detachable logo and hooks for detachable tiles with the artists' names.
It is compatible with the series of modular buildings with the help of the constructions from photo 10, which can be placed at the ends of the pavement.
All the balloons, umbrellas and cymbals are placed on flexible tubes.
Drums, cymbals, umbrellas and balloons clip-on constructions are not always rigid, so you can for example adjust the inclination of objects in your own way.
Chris Martin and Will Champion have unique drawings on their drums. Additionally, Chris Martin has two more music tools placed on his legs.
Why it could become a LEGO Ideas set?
I think it would be a great set for Coldplay fans and would honour the long time of the band's work and the 6th anniversary of Ghost Stories album, which includes the song A Sky Full of Stars.
The set contains 1285 parts.
