Lego has just released official images and a release date for Ideas Winner The Old Fishing Store.
It looks pretty true to the original so designer RobenAnne should be really chuffed. I’m so glad that Lego haven’t skimped on anything – I genuinely think that this looks gorgeous, and judging by these images from the back of the box there’s also loads of playability:
With 2,049 bricks it’s due for release on September 1st, with an RRP of USD 149.99 /€149.99 / £139.99. I better get saving now.
Here’s the official description:
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.
