We’re back! I’ve had an unexpected hiatus from the site due to lots going on at work and home, but a month has gone by and it’s time to get back into it. I’ve missed a bit!
The biggest news so far is the official reveal of LEGO Ideas 21329 Fender Stratocaster. This build looks brilliant! I don’t play guitar (although I’ve tried to learn briefly), but as a music fan this one speaks to me. It’ll retail for AU $159.99 (US $99) and will be available from October 1st at LEGO.com.
I love that it’s a larger build (but not too large), and it’s not just the guitar, but the amp, pedals and a stand too. There’s even strings and an awesome looking shoulder strap, and a well placed red guitar in the strip at the bottom of the box. Very cool. I’m writing this 30 minutes after reveal, after a very busy few days, so I’ll leave you with these other excellent articles from just as excellent Aussie websites.
Jay’s Brick Blog: Rock with the LEGO 21329 Ideas Fender Stratocaster
LEGO are on to yet another winner here, and I’m placing this one squarely in the “must-buy” category for 2022 LEGO sets.
The Fender Stratocaster is an iconic instrument, and will appeal to a new group of latent AFOLs, waiting for a set that will bring them back to their childhood love.
Bricking Around: Official details of LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster
This set originated as a LEGO Ideas competition entry but LEGO liked it so much they decided to release it as an actual set and I am glad they did. This thing looks incredible.
Bricking Around will also have a review of the set available soon, so keep an eye out for that. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it!
Ok that’s it! It’s good to be back.
