As expected, the latest set to carry an 18+ tag will launch on October 1 for £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99. That’s the same price tag as 21329 Fender Stratocaster, also arriving the same day (alongside 10293 Santa’s Visit and 71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block – prepare your wallets, basically).
With only 974 pieces in the box, though, it might feel pretty expensive next to last month’s 21328 Seinfeld, which retails for £10 / $20 / €20 less, but includes 352 more elements. The difference lies in the minifigure count: 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft includes two more as standard, plus outfit changes for several of its characters.
And as you can learn by digging into our detailed review, the newest LEGO for Adults set – which is based on the Netflix reality makeover show – includes plenty of unique printed pieces, presumably contributing to that slightly higher asking price.
It means it also comes in slightly cheaper than 10292 The Friends Apartments, therefore sitting squarely in the middle of this year’s apartment-style sets – but looks comparatively worse value next to that one, as the sitcom-inspired model retails for 50% more than 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft, but includes more than twice as many bricks (and, crucially, seven minifigures).
