The realistic set features a posable Canadarm2 and two rotating joints that coincide with eight adjustable solar panels, to replicate the out-of-this-world complexity of the real space station that orbits the Earth sixteen times a day!
In addition, a display stand means that builders can proudly display it in any room once complete and celebrate the achievements of the five international space agencies that brought the incredible real-life ISS to life and have enabled humans to live in space for 20 years.

LEGO fan Christoph Ruge submitted the original design for the LEGO Ideas International Space Station set after submitting other various space model entries via the LEGO Ideas platform.
LEGO Ideas offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits.
After three years, Christoph’s design was selected through the special review to celebrate the 10th anniversary year of the LEGO Ideas programme that has seen amazing sets come to fans including The Flintstones, Steamboat Willie and Friends Central Perk in the last year alone.

For the first time ever, Manchester United fans can now build and showcase a unique and authentic LEGO® model of the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.

The model is a true celebration of the passion for the game shared by fans all over the world, paying special homage to Manchester United fans. Developed particularly for fans aged sixteen and up, the high attention to detail makes this LEGO model of Old Trafford so special. The 1:600 replica model features several authentic details including the United Trinity statue and the Munich memorial clock.
The model will bring Old Trafford to the homes of Manchester United’s enormous fan base of 659M fans worldwide and to those that have not yet been able to experience the stadium in person.
Manchester United’s Director of Partnerships, Sean Jefferson comments:
“Our Old Trafford stadium is as iconic as Manchester United itself and we are proud to be able to bring it to life in LEGO form. I think everyone has played with LEGO bricks at some point in their life, however it’s still amazing to see the level of detail the LEGO designers have managed to recreate in this piece. We are sure it will be hugely popular amongst Manchester United and LEGO fans alike.”
Building this set is sure to be a nostalgic experience for Manchester United fans while also providing a rewarding building experience for LEGO fans. The building instructions includes information on the stadium and its rich heritage and history as well as the designers that have brought the set to life.
“To create Old Trafford in LEGO bricks was a tremendous design challenge for the team, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. The 110-year-old stadium provided us with so many important locations, features and stories to tell as we constructed this model. We are excited for our fans to be able to experience all of that history and attention to detail as they construct and proudly display this iconic stadium.” – Michael Psiaki, LEGO Design Master.
Kickoff is on January 16th 2020 when the model will be available directly from LEGO Retail Stores and www.LEGO.com/Old-Trafford exclusively for LEGO VIP members, with general availability beginning February 1st 2020, in time for the stadium’s 110th anniversary.
