The final set is, I'll admit, that scourge of complexity-craving AFOLs, the hated Stack-o-Bricks. The use of jumper plates to center the structure is the most advanced building technique on display here. But honestly, that's intrinsic to the design of the building itself. The Sears Tower is square in plan, subdivided into a bundle of nine smaller squares that are extruded straight up to varying heights. It's a form that lends itself well to a pretty simple interpretation in LEGO bricks.
