We have an online Lego group at work, but decided recently to have a face to face meet up in the bar. One of the guys in the group works in the Toys buying team, and one of his accounts is Lego.
He told us some interesting stuff, like just how many UCS Falcons we sold last year (the single best selling Lego set bar none for us last year), which recently released theme is going down like a lead balloon and so on.
He also told us about some sets lined up for next year. There's going to a Top Gear branded off road car, which I can understand. But one had us scratching our heads.
Q1 next year, yours for £249.99...
Lego Old Trafford!
I kid you not.
Presumably there are enough Man U. fans around the world to warrant it. Wouldn't be top of my list.
