Rumors have it on brick-street that AFOLs might be in for another LEGO treat very soon. Word has been circulating across LEGO fan forums that LEGO might have in the works its very first model of the iconic British passenger ship, in form of the LEGO Creator Expert RMS Titanic.
In his video, LEGO fan and YouTuber Brother From Another Brick shared some info on some of the possible direct-to-consumer (D2C) sets that LEGO has lined-up for 2021. Among this is a mention of a LEGO Creator Expert RMS Titanic set that is quite frankly, long overdue among older LEGO fans. This news from the LEGO vine was first spilled by Eurobricks forum member VanIslandLego who has a reputation for accurately predicting the arrival of two recently released LEGO Creator Expert sets: the LEGO Creator Expert Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (10274) and the Colosseum (10276).
There’s no word yet with regards to its possible piece count and retail price if the rumors turn out to be true. And if such is the case, then we can expect that the rumored LEGO Creator Expert RMS Titanic will be the second of its kind following the likes of the brick-built shipping vessel, LEGO Creator Maersk Line Triple-E (10241) released in 2014. I feel that most adult LEGO fans have been looking forward to this for a long time. However, considering the tragic story behind this infamous ship, and the many people who died in the wake of its accident on April 14, 1912, LEGO was probably initially discouraged from pursuing this possibility. So I’m not really sure about LEGO’s reasons right now and what has changed if rumors about the arrival of a LEGO Creator Expert RMS Titanic turns out to be true.
So what do you think of this possible next LEGO D2C set? Do you think that a ship with such a sad story behind it should be offered as an official LEGO set? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. Thanks again to Brother from Another Brick for the heads up.
