Manchester United fans should get a kick out of the latest LEGO Creator Expert set, which faithfully recreates the Premier League football team’s home stadium in 10272 Old Trafford.
The enormous microscale model packs in 3,898 pieces, including brand new printed elements for the pitch. All four of the modern stadium’s stands are present and correct, along with smaller details like statues of the United Trinity and Sir Alex Ferguson. Once complete, the 1:600-scale stadium measures a generous 18.5cm high, 47cm long and 39cm wide.
‘To create Old Trafford in LEGO bricks was a tremendous design challenge for the team, and we couldn’t be happier with the result,’ LEGO Design Master Michael Psiaki said. ‘The 110-year-old stadium provided us with so many important locations, features and stories to tell as we constructed this model. We are excited for our fans to be able to experience all of that history and attention to detail as they construct and proudly display this iconic stadium.’
