10272 - Old Trafford - Manchester United

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

According to the German site Stonewars (https://www.stonewars.de/geruechte/lego-creator-expert-10272-fussballstadion/) the next Creator Expert set will be the Manchester United Football (Soccer for Americans) stadium. The reason for the speculation is the license-agreement made between LEGO and the Manchester United club, last November 2019.

Supposed pricepoint: 269.99 EURO, and VIP exclusive sale starting later in January with a non-VIP sale from February onwards.

What do you all think? Does this sound realistic ? Will it sell ?

Obviously, it will sell in Europe much better than it will sell in the US.

Soccer has slowly been gaining popularity, but it's still just a fraction of the population that cares. If it were something like Fenway Park, I could see the market being much larger.

Is there anything really unique about their stadium?

The Asian market will go for this in a big way as well but I think there are better choices of stadium. Sounds a bit like SOH 2.0 to me.

failure? You probably missed out the right time to sell them. I had a lot of displays and sold them 330€ each.

All it takes are a few footballers (several of them enjoy Lego, Beckham for example) to post building one of these on their instagram accounts and this will be one of the best selling lego sets of all time. Remember when Beckham posted Cinderella's castle? This will be a good flip most likely and a great longer term set....

true dis...I think when Rachel's character posted an IG pic from the set...that started the obsession w/ the Central Perk set; which had an incredible 3 month run of x2-x3 RRP until recently.

A Lego Old Trafford? Sales will be good in the London stores then as most 'United' fans reside in the south and never venture north of Watford.

A huge stadium?  Uhh...doesn't seem that interesting to me at that scale.  I always thought stadiums would work best as architecture size sets, so you could have a few of your favorites sitting on a shelf (or a CEO desk)

I made a stadium about 5 years ago, and called it LEGO America Stadium. I wasn't aware of ideas theme back then or would've sent it in. It was about 24 inches long, by 10 inches wide, by 12 inches tall. But, it is now dismantled. 😞  

I think only a select few would be interested in a stadium in the US. But, nobody will know until it happens...

This would be a huge sector in the US

Of course, it would require dozens of sku's.

The demand may be there...

Forget the figures that Man U put out of 1.1 Billion fans :lol:

However using Facebook data (followers) you get:

10. UK - 2,182,231
9. Brazil - 2,268,714
8. USA - 2,474,157
7. Malaysia - 2,542,120
6. Egypt - 2,621,875
5. Mexico - 3,484,576
4. Vietnam - 3,850,583
3. India - 4,107,082
2. Thailand - 4,789,449
1. Indonesia - 9,823,997

Global total is over 70M followers, which is is still a respectable market for most of us.

Only problem is that countries in position 10 and 8 are the only ones with any decent level of Lego consumption let alone for a 300 USD set.

As a Creator Expert build, I can imagine a scale model similar to the Sydney Opera House. Then again because this is LEGO, I can also see this ending up as basically table soccer.

Well well, I quickflipped a bunch as well, but i thought keeping some would be a wise idea, but if we would know what the future brings we would not invest in lego 🙃

I like it. I've always liked sports related Legos. If this does well, it would be great to get a Wrigley Field or similar for us Americans
