The LEGO® Group released a fresh press release today regarding a new Creator Expert set. For fans of soccer (or football for European readers), this new set is right up your alley. On January 16, 2020, to celebrate the 110th anniversary of its real-life counterpart, Old Trafford (10272) comes alive in brick-built form.
In terms of specifics, fans can expect:
- Name: Old Trafford – Manchester United
- Set #: 10272
- Theme: Creator Expert
- Cost: $349.99 CAD ($299.99 US, £99, approx. €269.99)
- Brick Count: 3898
- Minifigures: none
- VIP release date: January 16, 2020
- General release date: February 1, 2020
Built at 1:600 scale, the Old Trafford is a detailed set. It includes the United Trinity statue, the Munich Memorial clock, and players tunnel among many other authentic details. Additionally, the built product measures 18.5 cm (6.5”) high, 47 cm (18”) long, and 39 cm (15”) wide.
The Old Trafford set is built at 1:600 scale.
Personally, I am not a big fan of any team sport. Therefore, I find it hard to get excited about this set. Additionally, it does not come with or accommodate any Minifigures. Minifigures are a huge selling point for me. However, Old Trafford (10272) will appeal to fans of soccer (football), and specially to Manchester United fans. Will it be a big seller? Only time will tell. With a reported fan base of 1.1 million, there are probably a number of people willing to dish out $349.99 for this. I just will not be one of them. What about you?
