After a couple of hiccups regarding the LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500, LEGO is finally ready to officially announce the next vehicular set!
LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) features the classic Italian car in brick form. The model clocks in at only 960pcs and will include a painting on an easel as well as a brick built luggage that you can attach to the back of the car.
The recommended retail price stands at SGD$139.90 / 79.99€ / USD$89.99 / TWD2899 / ¥8780 / RMB799 / RM399.90. There is a full table of international prices at the end this post for your reference.
The set also comes with a quaint brick built easel with a painting of the Fiat 500 parked in front of the Colosseum in Rome, Italy. The painting highlights the Flavian Amphitheatre quite prominently, almost as if it wanted to draw our attention to it…
There wasn’t many product images at the press release but they did include some really nice real world images of the car which gives us a better look at the build.
The launch date for the LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) will be March 1st at all LEGO Brand and Certified Stores around the world. It would be a nice set to go towards the minimum spend for the LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary set.
