Reflecting on delay of #21038 Las Vegas Skyline
It has been interesting to watch how the LEGO Group has responded to the recent tragic mass shooting event in Las Vegas. First, the much leaked set was not announced alongside #21039
Shanghai, then we heard a few weeks ago that it would be released at the end of January, then an official photos was released, and finally Promobricks learned that it was being re-designed and delayed until this fall.
What surprises me a little is how uncoordinated their response has been. A complete cancellation of the set seemed like the easiest course of action, but for some reason they allowed it to be announced, only to change their mind a week later. I suspect it has been difficult for the Danish company to understand the complex political tapestry in the USA, which has unusual gun laws for a developed nation, and tragedies keep happening. Further, we are also just learning about sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn, so maybe that building would be removed as well?What will replace Mandalay Bay in the revised model?
In any event, I'm curious to hear which building or buildings people think will replace the Mandalay Bay, and possibly Wynn? I prepared an in-depth look at this very topic, along with additional analysis of the reasons for the delay at brickarchitect.com
