Here is another new set that the LEGO Group announced in the last couple of days. They are bringing back one of their most popular themes with the launch of the new #10320 LEGO Icons Eldorado Fortress set which is based on the original LEGO Pirates theme. The highly anticipated return of the LEGO Pirates theme is in response to high demand from LEGO fans after it topped the charts in a recent 90th-anniversary vote on the LEGO Ideas platform.
Also known as Governor’s Fort Sabre, the Eldorado Fortress was a LEGO Pirates set based on Imperial Forts from the Golden Age of the piracy era, and the original set was unveiled in 1989. The new 2,509-piece set is highly detailed and features the fortress and working port, a jail, a working crane, trap doors, plus an imperial ship, and a small pirate rowboat. The fort (in open configuration) measures over 10.5 in. (27 cm) high, 27.5 in. (70 cm) wide, and 9.5 in. (24 cm) deep. In addition, the set comes with six soldier minifigures, two pirate minifigures, plus a cheeky monkey.
This tribute to the iconic 1980s model (#6276) also comes with new features that will thrill fans of the LEGO Pirates range. The brick-built base houses detailed rooms, and new building pieces allow for greater architectural expression while retaining the classic feel of the original set.
Uncover hidden treasures as you craft the iconic fortress brick by brick, including the admiral’s office, a pirate prison, and an array of secret spaces. Combine the modular room sections to create different configurations and stage epic battle scenes with working cannons, eight minifigures, and a cool pirate galleon with printed fabric sails.
The #10320 LEGO Icons Eldorado Fortress is going to be available starting from the 4th of July for LEGO VIP members, and the 7th of July for all from official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop. Prices are as follows: $214.99 / € 214.99. For more information, visit the LEGO Icons section of the Online LEGO Shop.
This is the third LEGO Icons set bringing back classic LEGO sets and wonderful childhood memories for many LEGO fans. The other two released last year are the #10305 LEGO Icons Lion Knights’ Castle and the #10497 LEGO Icons Galaxy Explorer. These two sets are also available at the LEGO Icons section of the Online LEGO Shop.
