This set is definitely one of the cooler Creator Expert sets I've ever built. It is extremely detailed and looks totally awesome. I like that it can be taken apart in sections for easy transport. The flaws, in my opinion, would be that there are way too many stickers. I wish they would just print the logos on the pieces. Another flaw would be that it is super small. I was expecting a lot bigger when I saw the pictures online. As for my usual comments on repetition, it's not that bad. There is some repetition, but not enough to bore you out. Overall, this set is definitely recommended to any soccer fan.
I'm not a football fan. When I started building this set I had some misgivings about whether I would like the model and enjoy the build. As it turns out I had a lot of fun building it (not in the least because I was assisted by my very eager 9-year-old daughter, who doesn't know the first thing about football, but is an avid LEGO fan) and I must say I quite like the finished model.
The most interesting part of both sides is the structure that holds up the roof. The roof is also built sideways and placed in opposite direction to the stands. After adding it to the construction it hinges down to the stands
Unlike the small stands, this section of the stadium is not fixed to the pitch, but rather slides into place with the guidance of a few axle pins. Just one more part to go before we complete the stadium!
Manchester United may not be enjoying the best of fortune on the pitch at the moment, but for what Old Trafford signifies as a part of and witness to its club's history, through the years in both tragedy and victory, it's the perfect subject to be turned into a LEGO set. And with 10272 Old Trafford, it's the perfect LEGO set too.
Yet sports fans are by nature passionate creatures and will support their favorite team through both their highs and lows. Needless to say, this will be a “must buy” for any Manchester United fans. My assessment is this will sell like gangbusters in Great Britain and much of Europe and less so elsewhere. American buyers however, whether they be sports fans or otherwise, may give this one a hard pass in favor of other large sets such as the 1989 Batmobile and the Disney Castle.
I personally really enjoyed the build, it has some great techniques under the hood, all of which are very well hidden once the cladding of the seating and the exterior is added. I may not support the team, but I definitely like the LEGO version of their stadium. The issue of how sturdy the whole thing is, is a little disappointing, but you could easily add a few Technic pins of your own should you wish for it to be held together a little better. Is it worth the price tag? Hard to say, I would certainly think this is a unique way for Manchester United loving LEGO fans to express their love of the club. But it's also an impressive set build for non-football loving LEGO fans.
10272 Old Trafford - Manchester United diverges dramatically from anything that LEGO has released previously and looks spectacular on display. This model compares favourably with its source material and certain deviations, such as the enlarged height of each stand in relation to their respective widths, improve its appearance. Furthermore, the low relative height of the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand provides an excellent view of the pitch and the surrounding seats.
