The press release that the LEGO Group distributed to media outlets listed a price tag of £99 / $99 / €99 for the 37th LEGO Ideas set, which is the cost you’ll likely have seen displayed across most news reports and early set reviews.
However, it turns out that the press release was actually incorrect: the final retail price for 21329 Fender Stratocaster is £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99. That 99-cent difference in the US and Europe isn’t really a big deal, but in the UK, that’s a whole 10% cheaper than originally anticipated.
As you can read in our since-updated review, it doesn’t do a lot to mitigate the feeling of poor value in the UK compared to the rest of the world – but it has led to plenty of confusion online over the actual retail price of 21329 Fender Stratocaster.
So, despite those claims in the press release published across the internet, the definitive UK recommended retail price for the set – as visible on LEGO.com – is £89.99. In return, you’ll receive 1,074 pieces that build into either a black or red Strat, along with a replica amp and foot pedal.
