Whether you are passionate about soccer or a connoisseur of architecture, you will love the new LEGO 10284 Camp Nou FC Barcelona Set. That’s right, folks. It is another exciting soccer stadium, this time, it is a tribute to the iconic stadium that is home to one of football’s greatest teams: FC Barcelona.
And man, this is a monster size set. Packing 5,509 pieces, when completed the LEGO 10284 Camp Nou FC Barcelona Set measures over 8 inches tall, 19 inches wide and 18 inches deep (20 x 49 x 46 cm).
While it has significantly more piece count than the last stadium set, the LEGO 10272 Creator Expert Old Trafford – Manchester United, it is no a lot larger. And you know what that means. It means it is loaded with details.
Details include a full pitch, stands, players tunnel, team coach, VIP entrance, and more importantly for any super fan, a scoreboard that references to the club’s momentous 5-0 win and FC Barcelona’s motto, “Més que un Club”, proudly displayed in the stands.
Moreover, architecture lovers will certainly appreciate the fact that the stands can be split into four sections, affording them an expanded view and appreciation of the set’s details.
The set is really a thing of beauty. There is no doubt about it. But it does come at quite a steep sticker, or US$349.99, to be precise. Ouch. That’s in addition to the crazy shelf space it requires.
