LEGO Real Madrid Santiago Bernabéu Unboxed

As revealed last week, the third LEGO® football stadium to join Old Trafford & Camp Nou is inspired by Real Madrid’s ground Santiago Bernabéu. At nearly 6000 pieces, it’s the largest LEGO stadium yet. It’s such a detailed and hefty build I’m still working on it so ahead of my review of the set, here’s a little look at what’s inside the box.

With 5876 pieces, the set is split across a whopping 40 bags, plus a couple of non-numbered bags featuring some of the larger plate elements including the printed pitch plates and printed signage.

Despite the printed pieces, there are a lot of stickers. A single sticker sheet features signage, advertising banners and other little details not achieved by elements. The build instructions are also split across 2 rather thick booklets. Booklet one covers bags 1-20 and the other 20-40.

The actual stadium is based on the original design of Santiago Bernabéu, which is currently undergoing a redesign. So although the set could be considered ‘out of date’ the original look will provide a much better build experience due to the various details found around the other sections of the stadium.

The Real Madrid Santiago Bernabéu stadium will be available from March 1st and my review will be on the way once I’ve finished building it. Stay tuned to Twitter for build updates and follow the stadium coming to life in brick form. Until then you can learn more about the set here.

  1. Let us know if the lines on the pitch are aligned. Old Trafford set is slightly off centered.
