Just a little while ago, BrickSet tweeted his unofficial pictures of the Old Fishing Store from the LEGO Fan Event in Billund, and they were quickly followed by a proper LEGO announcement with details about the upcoming set.
Find all the gear you need for a fantastic fishing trip at the Old Fishing Store! Walk up the steps from the beach into the shop selling fishing rods, hooks, harpoons, diving equipment, oxygen tanks and much more. Climb the ladder to the top of the watchtower and look through the telescope to enjoy the view. Then relax and read the newspaper in the office. Just make sure the cat or seagulls don’t eat the freshly caught fish hanging outside!
The Old Fishing Store is 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.
Robert Bontenbal (RobenAnne) from the Netherlands designed this beautiful set based on his personal love of fishing: “Fishing has always been my hobby. From fishing in the Caribbean, where I lived for a while, to fishing in Holland. So you could say that my interest in fishing and my job as an architectural draughtsman came together in this model”.
The Old Fishing Store will be available beginning on September 1, with recommended retail prices of USD 149.99 / EURO 149.99 / GBP 139.99 and is made up of 2,049 bricks and pieces.
