As most of you have already seen the couple of leaked box set images over the last couple of days, here is the official announcement with even more product photos and details!
It clocks in at 3898 pcs and measures 47cm long, 39cm wide and stands at 18.5 cm tall.
The LEGO Creator Old Trafford – Manchester United (10272) set is essentially an Architecture set in disguise.
The model is actually designed at a 1:600 scale of the original “Theatre of Dreams”.
This is in celebration of the 110th anniversary of stadium itself which was built in 1910 which served as Manchester United Football Club’s home ground since then.
The only thing I did notice when I got the press release was that this set is void of any minifigures which I felt was a missed opportunity.
However, I did learn from trusted source that there might be an exclusive gift with purchase when you buy this particular set, similar to the LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139).
The recommended retail price for the LEGO Creator Expert Old Trafford – Manchester United (10272) is SGD$399.90 / US $299.99 / CA $349.99 / DE €269.99 / UK £249.99 / FR €269.99 / DK 2199DKK.
