We discussed the #21310 LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store already (see: LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store Details), and the set won’t be available until September, however I wanted to bring to your attention that it is already listed at the Online LEGO Shop with a full description and more pictures than what we have seen before. 🙂
To recap, the #21310 LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store was originally submitted by Dutch LEGO fan Robert Bontenbal, it achieved the required 10K public votes, and was chosen by the LEGO Ideas team to be the next set in the collection of fan-designed models. You can read more about the project and its creator at LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store Details.
Here is the official description of the set: Visit the beachside Old Fishing Store, featuring a shop packed with fishing-themed elements, and a connected watchtower with a 360-degree viewing balcony and office on the lower level. 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. Includes 4 minifigures: a captain, fisherman, fisherwoman and a child, plus cat and 3 seagull figures. Also includes a booklet about the fan designer and LEGO designer of this set. Measures over 12” (32cm) high, 9” (25cm) wide and 9” (25cm) deep. 2,049 pieces. Price: $149.99 – SEE THE ONLINE LEGO SHOP
While previously we were only able to see the box design and the exterior of the building, now LEGO also added pictures of many of the interior details. For example, on the picture above, you can see that the building it set up with easily removable roof pieces to play inside. In addition, the lookout tower splits into two sections, with a little office on the lower level, and a viewing balcony on the upper level.
The shop itself features an opening back wall for more accessibility, and as you can see, it is fully packed inside with all kinds of interesting accessories. Some of the most noteworthy ones are the printed fishing hook boxes, the printed notespads (these are not new, but still pretty rare), the red tool box (also not new, but fairly rare), and a good selection of diving gear. The whole store is messy and crammed, just like a real old fishing store.
The exterior features steps to the front and side doors, railings going around the front and side, and lots of accessories thrown about. I believe that the ‘Anton’s Bait Shop’ sign is a 2×4 printed tile, and the roof tiles are also printed, but some of the other decorations are stickers. Also note that the set includes some very desirable rare colors like sand-green, olive-green, and several shades of tan and brown.
Three of the four minifigs come with very detailed new prints, and moulded-in boots. The designs would fit well with pretty much any LEGO City setting. And of course there is a cat – every fishing store has to have a cat. If you would like to see larger versions of the pictures, check the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop. They also have a few more images I haven’t included here.
The #21310 LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store is definitely expected to be very popular, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it sells out just as fast as the #21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V when it becomes available. I hope LEGO makes enough…
