But it's not completely rigid; each set can be reimagined in a number of different ways or even refreshed if you fancy a change.

"Music lovers can bring Beatle-fandom into the home with a Lego portrait of their favorite band member, whether it's John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison or Sir Ringo Starr", noted a press release announcing the line. Choose between portraits that pay tribute to the Sith, with Darth Vader, Darth Maul, or Kylo Ren, or take the artwork to the next level by combining three sets into an ultimate Darth Vader™ wall piece.

Lego is introducing a new line, Lego Art, that lets you recreate pop culture icons, from the Beatles, Iron Man, Star Wars, and Andy Warhol. For example, you will need to buy four of the same Beatles set to build individual posters for each band member. "Through this new experience, we believe adults can unwind, engage in a mindful building activity and ultimately create a attractive piece of wall art that perfectly reflects their personality".

LEGO Launches Amazing New Art Line With IRON MAN And STAR WARS Sets

The Lego Art canvas sets themselves are all recommended for builders 18 years of age and older and can range from 2,933 to 3,406 pieces depending on the set.

Each Lego Art set features over 3,000 small, round pieces in various colors to pop into a canvas to make an artistic portrait.

Each kit will set you back $119.99, so keep that in mind when planning your very own LEGO Art gallery wall.

And as if that wasn't enough, the Iron Man and Star Wars sets can be combined to form a larger display, provided you buy three of the same sets, of course.

Accompanying soundtrack includes interviews with Broadcaster and Beatles Expert, Geoff Lloyd, British journalist and Beatles fan Samira Ahmed and stories from Nish Kumar, Comedian, TV Presenter and Beatles fan. The sets come with an accompanying soundtrack with stories about the Fab Four. LEGO Star Wars The Sith - Celebrate iconic villains from a galaxy far, far away with this 3-in-1 portrait set. Then again, you could always channel the full power of your darkness into putting all three together to make one commanding Darth Vader piece. Each Lego Art set costs $120 (~Rs 9,000) for each poster, with global shipping starting August 1.

Ever wanted to try your hand at creating a Pop Art piece? Lego fan site Brick Fanatics states that the sets will be available in the September, however the Lego official website simply says the items are "coming soon". You might be able to pre-order them now from selected retailers in certain countries.

There's much more to Lego than impressive models of the Batmobile and the Millennium Falcon.
