Hello LEGO enthusiasts!
We have some exciting news that is sure to stir up waves of nostalgia and delight. The LEGO Group has announced the return of one of its most beloved themes, the LEGO® Icons Eldorado Fortress. This iconic set, based on the original LEGO Pirates theme, is making a grand comeback, thanks to the overwhelming demand from LEGO fans worldwide. The Pirates theme topped the charts in a recent 90th-anniversary vote on the LEGO Ideas platform, and we couldn’t be happier to see it sail back into our lives!
The Eldorado Fortress, also known as Governor’s Fort Sabre, was first unveiled in 1989. It was a LEGO Pirates set inspired by the Imperial Forts from the Golden Age of piracy. This new 2509 piece set is a highly detailed tribute to the original, featuring the fortress and working port, a jail, a working crane, and trap doors. But that’s not all! It also includes an imperial ship and a small pirate rowboat, perfect for those daring sea adventures.
The set comes with eight minifigures, including six soldier minifigures and two pirate minifigures, as well as a skeleton, monkey, parrot, and crab figures. And let’s not forget the cheeky monkey that adds a dash of fun to the whole ensemble!
The Eldorado Fortress is designed for adults, but it’s sure to bring out the child in you. It’s a modular model, offering exciting spaces to explore and endless ways to reconfigure and play. From the deepest dungeons to the top of the tower, the Eldorado Fortress holds many secrets under lock and key. It’s time to finally reveal the mysteries inside.
The set will be available for purchase from 4th July 2023 for LEGO VIPs via LEGO Stores and the official LEGO website. For all other LEGO fans, the set will be available from 7th July. Priced at $239.99/€239.99/£189.99, this set is a treasure trove of fun and adventure.
