LEGO Creator has something of a history of producing sets that celebrate a handful of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom, with the company previously having released sets for iconic structures such as the Tower Bridge and Big Ben — not to mention London’s red double-decker buses. LEGO is now adding another noteworthy British building to its Creator lineup with the release of a new set, recreating Manchester United’s Old Trafford Stadium.
Comprised of 3,898 pieces, this expert-level adult LEGO set is a 1:600 replica of the so-called “Theatre of Dreams,” measuring 6.5” H x 18” L x 15” W. Despite its relatively diminutive size, the set manages to cram a myriad of authentic features and touches that help to bring the 76,000 capacity stadium to life. This includes iconic elements such as miniature replica versions of the seats and stands, the Munich Clock, the players’ tunnel, and statues of Matt Busby, Sir Alex Ferguson, and the “United Trinity.” Even various sponsor logos are included, and the Desso GrassMaster pitch pattern itself has been recreated for the set. Making a stellar gift for the sports lover, the LEGO Creator Old Trafford – Manchester United set has been priced at $300 and is scheduled for a release on February 1, 2020.
