LEGO recently released a new set, 10181, Eiffel Tower.
Set 10181 is a 1:300 scale model of the Paris landmark, designed from the original blueprints. This gallery, by Brickshelf user nfontaine, has many detailed pictures of the construction, including a closeup of the elevators. Many people who aren't even interested in the model are excited by this set as a dark gray (dark blay) parts pack, since it has very large numbers of repeated elements, such as 240 dark gray 1x2 plates. Overall this set contains 3428 elements and costs US$200.
10181 on Brickset and Lugnet. Inventory on Peeron.
