This week saw the official reveal of 10332 Medieval Town Square, a 3,304-piece LEGO Icons set that will be released next month priced at £199.99 / $229.99 / €229.99. The model arrives exclusively for LEGO Insiders on March 1, then everyone else will be able to pick up the build from March 4.
LEGO Icons lead designer Henrik Rubin Saaby has already confirmed that 10332 Medieval Town Square is in fact a successor to 2009’s 10193 Medieval Market Village. However, the upcoming model isn’t a like-for-like remake of the classic LEGO Castle set, but instead offers a more modern take on a bustling medieval street scene.
As well as numerous Easter eggs hidden throughout the model, Henrik has also revealed that he’s given 10332 Medieval Town Square’s characters their own background stories, which may also apply to the set’s location too.
The official listing for the LEGO Icons build states that the model is actually called the village of Felsa, a name that may well have some deeper meaning. As far as we can tell, 10193 Medieval Market Village was never named as anything other than its product title, so it’s possible Henrik might still have some secrets to spill regarding the upcoming set.
“When I’m doing a set where there are characters, I usually do a background story for each character,” says Henrik. “I ask, what kind of life do they have? What is their name? What job do they do? How do they link together with other characters? And so on. For this set, I wrote a small story for each of the eight characters and then when I have that, it’s easier to design.”
10332 Medieval Town Square can be purchased by LEGO Insiders on March 1, before receiving a wider launch on March 4. The LEGO Icons set will be priced at £199.99 / $229.99 / €229. 99 and you can find out more about the upcoming model in our visual tour and gallery here.
