It looks like we’ll be seeing this year’s first LEGO Creator Expert set very soon. If you’re keeping tabs with the news going through the leaking faucet, then you’ll probably recall that there were rumors last November of a LEGO and Manchester United partnership. The details were a bit sketchy though, with no particular announcement given on what kind of LEGO products will be offered that will make Manchester United fans surely happen. Personally, I first thought that this latest offering might include another CMF series similar to what LEGO did with the LEGO German National Football DFB Collectible Minifigures (71014) series released back in 2016. However, as it turned out, it was larger and grander than what I expected. Thanks to Promobricks, we now have our first look at the LEGO Creator Expert Old Trafford-Manchester United (10272).
Truth be told, the following images are all-around social media right now, with an official press release expected anytime soon, so I guess the cat is out of the bag already. For fans of Europe’s leading football team, the LEGO Creator Expert Old Trafford-Manchester United (10272) is an exquisite display set to show your pride for the team. Coming in at 3,898 pieces, the set recreates the famous Old Trafford stadium complete with all the details such as the Sir Alex Ferguson and Bobby Charlton Stands. It’s a faithful brick rendition of the second-largest football stadium in the UK, together with its impressive seats and football field. In case you’re not familiar with the Old Trafford Stadium, then you may want to see this nifty video courtesy of travel vlogger Renata Pereira.
Based on these first images, it seems that the set itself will consist of four modules (representing the stands) that can be rearranged to allow a better view of the football field inside. The LEGO Creator Old Trafford-Manchester United (10272) is expected to retail for 269.99 Euros.
Be sure to stay tuned for more updates, with more news to be released about this set anytime soon.
