CHICAGO (CBS) -- Chicago's skyline is getting the Lego treatment.

The company will soon be selling a Lego set showcasing iconic buildings and attractions, including the Willis Tower and John Hancock, Wrigley and CNA buildings, as well as a tiny Cloud Gate and Michigan Avenue river bridge.

The 444-piece set will sell for $39.99 as part of its Lego Architecture Skyline series. (There is one of New York City already.)

Fans can pick up the set, starting on Dec. 11, at the Chicago Architecture Foundation at 224 S. Michigan Ave., the Lego store at Water Tower Place at 835 N. Michigan Ave., and the Legoland in Schaumburg.

There are a few notable absences from the set, such at Trump Tower, Marina City and Navy Pier.

The Lego Architecture Series started with individual buildings, including the Willis Tower, John Hancock and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie house in Hyde Park.
