Confusion emerges over price of LEGO Ideas 21329 Fender Stratocaster

You may have seen conflicting reports over the UK price of LEGO Ideas 21329 Fender Stratocaster, so here’s how much the buildable guitar will actually cost next month.

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.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
