Even though most of the kits for 2021 have already been announced, it looks like the LEGO Group still has a few reveals up its sleeve. Today we get a first look at an upcoming Creator Expert set, which puts FC Barcelona in the spotlight with a 5,500-piece version of the club’s iconic Camp Nou football stadium. Launching later this fall, you’ll want to head below for all the details on the upcoming LEGO Camp Nou set.
LEGO Camp Nou football stadium on the way
After seeing the LEGO Group for the first time jump into the football fanfare in early 2020 with their Creator Expert Manchester United stadium, it looks like fans will have another iconic location to add to their brick collections. By assembling the iconic FC Barcelona home, you will soon be able to build one of the greatest LEGO landmarks to date with the Camp Nou stadium.
As of yet, the LEGO Group has yet to officially announce the next Camp Nou set, although we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the model. After taking a first look at the art of the box, we know the build will stack up to 5,509 pieces and come in at a scale similar to the previously released football stadium.
Although it is roughly the same overall size, the latest addition to the collection arrives with an impressive 1,600 additional pieces. So it will be exciting to see how much of these are tapped into once we get a better look at the details. Entering the Creator Expert theme, it is safe to say that there will be a lot of genuine inclusions from the real world location.
Launching later this fall in October
For now, we can expect to see the LEGO Camp Nou stadium launch later this fall in October, but the official release date has yet to be confirmed. It will most likely launch on the first of the month given the usual trend with new debuts. The price, on the other hand, is a bit higher.
We know the model will hit stores priced at € 329.99 in the UK, although the US entry point has yet to be confirmed. It will likely arrive between $ 350 and $ 400, although we will have to wait for some official details from the LEGO Group for now. For comparison, Old Trafford launched at $ 299.99.
After the LEGO Group launched their first football stadium over a year and a half ago, I had assumed Manchester United would be the only place to benefit from the brickwork treatment. Especially after not having had an announcement at the start of the year. But now that all that time has passed, it looks like we’re actually getting another massive recreation of an iconic football club seat.
Whether this becomes a staple of the Creator Expert theme going forward or just a type of kit that launches every now and then, it’s nice to see FC Barcelona receiving some love. Hopefully the series continues long enough for the folks at FC Crystal Palace to be considered.
