First look images and details for the upcoming LEGO® Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store set
The wait is finally over as the team at LEGO Ideas have released the first details and images regarding their newest set, the Old Fishing Store.
Designed by Robert Bontenbal of the Netherlands, his Old Fishing Store submission to the LEGO Ideas site was approved for production in fall of 2016 after a lengthy review process.
The completed set will be available to purchase September 1st, will feature a whopping 2049 pieces and retail at £139.99. Now the RRP may seem steep but this will be a substantial build and if you look carefully at the pictures you’ll notice it utilizes a lot of new and interesting techniques to give the wooden panelling and roofing a somewhat dilapidated look.
The LEGO® Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store also features a unique colour scheme, which I can honestly say I’ve never seen before in any other commercial LEGO set. It’s also backed to the brim with detailing and accessories such as seagulls and crabs, hanging fish, a cash register, scuba gear and plenty of quaint signage.
All in all this is a set I’m truly excited for, more so than the Apollo Saturn V set because it’s a truly unique build with a lot to offer.
You’ll find the official description and images for upcoming LEGO® Ideas 21310 Old Fishing Store set below, enjoy!
Find all the gear you need for a fantastic fishing trip at the Old Fishing Store! Walk up the steps from the beach into the shop selling fishing rods, hooks, harpoons, diving equipment, oxygen tanks and much more. Climb the ladder to the top of the watchtower and look through the telescope to enjoy the view. Then relax and read the newspaper in the office. Just make sure the cat or seagulls don’t eat the freshly caught fish hanging outside!
The Old Fishing Store is ideal for display and role-play, this model has 2 removable roofs, an opening back wall in the shop for easy access, 4 minifigures, cat and 3 seagull figures, as well as loads of other cool details and elements to fire up the imagination.
