It is almost 20 years since the last Concorde flight, and LEGO felt that it was time to add this iconic aircraft to its ‘LEGO Icons’ collection.

This is NOT a LEGO set for small children.

It’s designed for adults, with an adult-sized number of blocks and an adult-targeted price tag.

The LEGO Concorde is 105 cm long and comes with a display stand, as you can see from the images here.

It contains a whopping 2,083 pieces so it will certainly keep you busy through quite a few autumn evenings.

Interesting features include:

Just like the real-life Anglo-French passenger jet, this detailed replica model has a tiltable droop nose, functioning landing gear, a retractable tail bumper wheel, delta wings with movable elevons and hinged upper and lower rudders. It also features an accessible seating area and comes with a stand for display in flight, takeoff or landing modes.

The livery is one used during the first test flights. British Airways and Air France would use their own, different, liveries when they received their aircraft for passenger use.

The price in the UK will be £169. It goes on sale on 7th September, although if you are a ‘LEGO VIP’ you can order one early on 4th September.

PS. In other Concorde news, the aircraft which is based at the Intrepid Museum in New York – which I only saw for the first time at Easter despite many, many NYC trips over the years – has been moved for maintenance. Here is a news clip.

It will return, spruced up, in three months. During this period Pier 86 will undergo a renovation to create an additional chunk of public parkland.

    It’s a shame that it’s labelled the Airbus Concorde when they had nothing to do with its design or manufacture. It should be the BAC/Aérospatiale Concorde, something to do with Airbus owning the IP I believe?

      It’s Lego…

      Design, print and adhibit your own Decals.

    • Rob says:

      Probably. Presumably also saves paying BA a few quid for the rights to their livery.

    • Rui N. says:

      Airbus is the sucessor to Aérospatiale and the Concorde was maintained by them until the end (very reluctantly, and they pushed AF/BA to stop flying them).

      • Alastair says:

        I don’t think that’s quite right. Airbus invested a lot of time and money into the return to service modifications after the Paris accident, but without AF wanting to continue in 2002/3 (especially as it’s rumoured they came very close to having another accident) then having only BA operate would be even more uneconomic.

    • D says:

      BAC and Aérospatiale, along with other European aircraft manufacturers, merged together to form Airbus. When they merged, the IP was transferred to the new company.

    As an av geek since childhood, my biggest regret was not ever having flown Concorde and what I’d give to give it a go..

    I’m a little too young as my NYC work travel was on 777s and jumbos, but former colleagues told me about some deal whereby you’d purchase a fully flex Biz to NYC, and BA would upgrade you one way to Concorde. This was from a colleague flying presumably in the 90s with work. Regrettably those days were long gone by the time I started travelling with work.

      My uncle met his second wife on Concorde over an argument about internal space and seat width. Still together x x

    • signol says:

      I was an intern / stagiaire at Air France in 1999-2000, and at the time, all (permanent) staff on reaching retirement received a free one way Concorde ticket. Best I had was an “upgrade” to the cockpit jumpseat on an A320 to Heathrow!
