LEGO Icons 2023 Concorde: First Look

Aug 3, 2023
54 Comments LEGO Icons 10318 Concorde leak

Although first information about 2024 LEGO sets is already circulating, there are still a few new ones left for this year.

These new sets also include the new LEGO Icons Concorde, which is due to be released this September. Now first images of the long-awaited set have surfaced, which of course we don't want to withhold from you.

The building technique of the LEGO Concorde is very similar to the one of the LEGO Icons 10283 Space Shuttle from 2021. The snot technique is used to build the wings of the plane with the Rolls-Royce engines underneath them.

Although the set is kept in miniature scale, the model of the Concorde is 100cm or 40in long.

Using a mechanism inside of the set, the wheels can be folded out and the snoot can be adjusted up and down. The model consists of a total of 2083 LEGO bricks. Also included besides the plane itself is a stand which conveys a wooden look.

The LEGO Icons Concorde will be released on September 4th and will be available for purchase at a price of $199.99.

  • Name: Concorde
  • Set Number: 10318
  • Release: September 4th
  • Price: $199.99
  • Pieces: 2083
  • Minifigures: 0

What do you think about the new LEGO Concorde? Let us know in the comments!

Perhaps not, but one might say Airbus was made by Concorde.

LegofanAug 8 2023, 21:56

Cobi hat bereits ein Modell, muss Lego nun auch schon Ideen sammeln? Ich bin begeistert, was ich in den Kommentaren alles über Airbus lerne. Auch danke dafür. Danke für den super Artikel, ich freue mich, mal sehen ob der Preis gerechtfertigt ist. Danke für die Recherche.

The Concorde was NOT made by Airbus... whats going on here?

DavidBAug 8 2023, 19:47

@Dave Airbus acquired Aérospatiale (Sud Aviation) in 2000 thereby acquiring rights and supplying parts for Concorde

ChumboAug 8 2023, 14:34

Sorry but this is the best the Lego designers could come up with?

Christopher Mac daysAug 8 2023, 3:46

For Australian dollars, it’s possibly gonna be $300 ($350 AUD with taxes and the extra costs they add on when releasing a Lego product)

GamerAug 7 2023, 13:47

How much in English pounds?

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 7 2023, 21:54

Unfortunately we currently only know the us dollar price for sure, but I think it should be around 160/170 pounds

The Brick MasterAug 7 2023, 0:03

How much AUD?

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 7 2023, 11:03

It's not clear yet unfortunately, but I think it'll probably be around $310.

Mego the legoAug 6 2023, 16:01

Glad to see Lego making aircraft. More aircraft !!!

PlaneAddictAug 6 2023, 6:14

Looking forward to it's release. Hope it makes its way to South Africa.

PragueALFAug 5 2023, 21:40

Can you estimate the size of this Concorde?

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 5 2023, 22:13

The model is 100cm or 40in long! Updated the article with the size info now

RiriAug 10 2023, 6:48

Said in the article, 1m long

EurofighterLoverAug 5 2023, 12:57

Pls be based off of G-AXDN, I’ve been inside it :D

SkyCaptainAug 5 2023, 4:12

The Lego Concorde is historically wrong - the red stripe is too thin, placed below the passenger window line instead of on it, and incorrectly extends forward of the main door. This is a printed line on parts - don't understand why it's inaccurate.

a fancy nameAug 5 2023, 13:23

If you look at the top left image on the back of the box, you can see that the red stripe is brick built not printed

droopAug 4 2023, 23:13

wow! the snoot droops!! droop snoot

Lego guyAug 4 2023, 13:55

How big is it

EurofighterLoverAug 5 2023, 12:58

Just over one metre long

MasterOfDisasterAug 4 2023, 13:01

Kinda wish they had decals for British Airways or Air France versions.

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 4 2023, 13:30

Agreed, would definitely be a nice touch!

Bean101Aug 4 2023, 9:47

Airbus are the legacy manufacturer, previously known as Sud Aviation

HrlyAug 4 2023, 9:39

They used Airbus as they knew the most about Concorde. Airbus was the only company that could give Concorde a certificate of air worthiness. So it is only right for Airbus to be used as they own blueprints and mechanical sketches

BrickmasterAug 4 2023, 9:34

Because Airbus emerged from Aérospatiale, one of the manufacturers of Concorde, and the licensing rights accordingly passed to Airbus.

pineappleAug 4 2023, 9:28

The companies that built Concorde amalgamated into Airbus. Had they refurbished it in 2003 it would have been done by Airbus, and they were making replacement parts then too, but they had no interest in continuing the project, which was one of the reasons why it was retired.

TyindelAug 4 2023, 8:44

The original companies are now part of Airbus and BAE for the French and British sides respectively

PinguAug 4 2023, 8:36

Sud Aviation became Aerospatiale which then helped form Airbus for anyone who is confused. Plus Airbus manufactured spare parts for the Concorde until the 2000s

ihmemiesAug 4 2023, 8:06

Thats Sick af

DavidAug 4 2023, 8:06

The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde (/ˈkɒŋkɔːrd/) was a Franco-British airliner jointly developed and manufactured by Sud Aviation (later Aérospatiale then Airbus) and the British Aircraft Corporation (later British Aerospace now BAE SYSTEMS) it had nothing to do with Airbus brand).

Donal BeanniganAug 5 2023, 13:59

But the Technical Authority for the Aircraft is held by Airbus, they air the only organisation who can licence this product, and they probably provided LEGO with the technical data they needed to develop the set.

avionicsmanAug 4 2023, 7:40

It still isn't airbus, no matter what SUD/aerospatiale turned into, so this is factually incorrect.

Boeing747Aug 4 2023, 5:34

Airbus succesor for Aérospatiale

TeaBoxAug 4 2023, 3:49

This looks increadible, finally lego is making something official that is aviation related

WyattAug 4 2023, 2:09

Concorde was owned by airbus at the end

DIMbricksAug 4 2023, 1:16

Looks great!

IworkonplanesAug 4 2023, 0:04

Airbus is the successor to the manufacturing consortium that built Concorde and thus own the rights to the aircraft

BrickheadAug 3 2023, 23:35

Concorde was an Anglo-Franco collaboration that ultimately paved the way for Airbus.

PlaneAug 3 2023, 22:30


pancake019Aug 3 2023, 22:00

probably cos the companies that built concorde hwve stuff to do with airbus

ConcordAug 3 2023, 21:43

Concord ain’t Airbus

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 3 2023, 21:59

Think it's owned by them now so they've put their logo on the box

boeing is superiorAug 3 2023, 22:52

yuh lol

HeyAug 4 2023, 0:31

No but aerospatiale was merged into them

TLAug 4 2023, 1:06

Concorde was purchased and built by Airbus in the later years. 2001 onwards.

Plane ExpertAug 4 2023, 5:27

Aeosoatiele became EADS. EADS IS Airbus.

RedAug 4 2023, 6:34

The whole Concorde program is owned by Airbus since the companies that merged into Airbus were the ones who did the Concorde (BAC and Aerospitale, among others)

AeroTr75Aug 4 2023, 7:25

Aerospatiale > Aerospatiale matra > Airbus Group 😉

ledoAug 3 2023, 20:29

Why airbus tho

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 3 2023, 21:40

It was built by the British Aircraft Corporation and Aerospatiale and I think Aerospatiale was merged into Airbus so they own it now

fancy fancyAug 4 2023, 1:10

AIRBUS holds its copyright

Spaceguy2000Aug 3 2023, 15:21

They should've included a Pilot minifigure!

Falconbricks logo badgeFalconbricksAug 3 2023, 15:34

Agreed! Would be cool if it would be attached next to the stand or something
