Description

Not entirely true when you consider what the resources put into this could have been spent on instead. I wonder if there's some kind of licensing deal that makes it worth their while?" As a display piece based on such an imposing and iconic real-world stadium, how it sits on display is crucial to its appeal, and in every way 10284 Camp Nou – FC Barcelona impresses. It’s one of those LEGO sets that your eyes just glaze over as you take it in, and that highlights a different detail each time you look closer – it’s one to enjoy on display for a long time, if you can find the shelf space. It’s one that at times if you aren’t careful will test your patience, but at the same time manages to offer intrigue, detail and enjoyment along the way, and that leaves you with a highly-impressive display piece at the end that delivers on the value you would hope to get from a LEGO set priced as it is. In good times and in bad, Barca is a club with an identity like no other, one that is connected to its people in such a unique way, and one that presents Camp Nou as more than just a football stadium of architectural wonder, but a home like no other.

There are some fun little details when you look closely, too. These two transparent-clear wall elements represent the player’s zone – an area with covered seating for the players and coaches. From the outside edge, things continue to look good, with the “Camp” tile lining up with the “Nou” on the previous chunk. The final bit of the build is adding some decorative touches to the top of the stands and to the grey base. We’ll cover those enhancements in the next section. The completed first section reveals that there’s a decent amount of gap between the wedge sections as you move away from the center. It’s a little distracting when seen here, but isn’t as noticeable once the full set is together. It’s a reasonable trade-off for the smooth curve to the overall building’s shape. The new LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set allows you to create a spectacular 5,509-piece model that is sure to take centre stage in any fan’s home.Camp Nou is a stadium that has borne witness to some of club football’s most revered and decorated teams, and celebrated some of the game’s most gifted stars. Written into its history are names like Johan Cruyff, who brought a Dutch footballing philosophy to Barcelona that is still followed to this day; any number of foreign greats like Diego Maradona, Hristo Stoichkov, Michael Laudrup, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ronaldinho; and, held with such pride, youth team graduates from La Masia who among others include Pep Guardiola, Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi.

The other issue with designing Camp Nou is that the pitch is actually below ground level... In fact, ground level is roughly the bottom of the second tier of seating... As someone else pointed out, the stand with the flags on it is actually almost twice the height of the West Stand (when measured from outside the stadium)...The first steps build the playing field. There’s nothing too exciting about this, but I was surprised the designers didn’t have this section be the final part of the build. It feels like it would be a pretty fun capstone to the building experience, particularly as things get really dull in the main build. But more on that later. For right now, just enjoy a modular section that you could easily repurpose as the center of another custom stadium build. Its probably a bit similar to sports video games, everyone on every normal gaming forum hates them, but they still sell every year because theres people who are JUST sports gamers, they buy the latest console and FIFA or Madden or whatever every year and thats all, they dont play anything else, they dont even really consider themselves gamers, theyre sports fans. Theyre practically their own completely separate market, so whatever the rest of us think of the games or the business models surrounding them doesnt matter, because were not even the customers of that. The new LEGO FC Barcelona Camp Nou set is fantastically detailed. Features include the stands, pitch, team tunnel, media boxes and even the team’s coach. The score board also references the club’s momentous 5-0 win over rivals Real Madrid in 2010 and two of the stands proudly feature the “Mes que un Club” motto that is known by fans around the world.
