Hey Dune Lovers and LEGO Enthusiasts! 🌌
Guess what? Our two favorite universes have just collided in the coolest way possible! Yep, you guessed it. LEGO has just unveiled a spectacular set inspired by none other than the epic world of Dune, all thanks to the breathtaking adaptation by Denis Villeneuve.
Introducing the LEGO® Icons Dune™ Atreides Royal Ornithopter! 🚀 This isn’t just any LEGO set, folks. This beast boasts a whopping 1,369 pieces and lets you piece together the iconic dragonfly-esque Ornithopter. And yes, the blades actually flap and retract. Talk about taking our LEGO building game to new heights!
The finished model is impressive: standing 9 inches high, 22 inches long, and a wingspan of 31 inches. But that’s not all! To really get you in the Arrakis spirit, this set comes with EIGHT Dune minifigures: Paul, Lady Jessica, Gurney, Chani, and the gang. Oh, and don’t forget Baron Harkonnen rocking that signature long robe!
Whether you’re a die-hard fan of Frank Herbert’s classic novels or have recently been blown away by the Dune films, this set is a dream come true. And, heads up, Dune: Part Two™ is landing in cinemas on March 15th, 2024. Can’t wait!
Michael Psiaki from LEGO shared our excitement, saying, “Like many of you, we were hooked on Dune. So what better way to celebrate the next chapter than with this iconic LEGO set? Dive into the world of Dune and build away!”
Amber Sheppo from Legendary Entertainment chimed in, “Turning Dune into LEGO? A dream come true. We’re stoked for fans everywhere to dive into this amazing build.”
Want to get your hands on this gem? It’s available for pre-order NOW and will be officially released on February 1st, 2024. The price tag? $164.99 USD/EUR or £149.99 for our UK friends.
And, by the way, it’s part of the LEGO Sets for Adults range. So, no shame in geeking out on this, fellow grown-ups. 😉
