LEGO has probably the best fans in the world. And no wonder, when the Danish company listens to its community so closely. The LEGO Ideas: Ship in a Bottle is further proof of that.
UPDATE: Read our LEGO Ideas: Ship in a Bottle review
The original idea for the Ship in a Bottle was submitted to the LEGO Ideas platform by Jake Sadovich back in November 2016, and received the support of 10,000 other fans within two months. You can see why – it’s a real beauty, and an innovative reimagining of a classic ornament. And the LEGO team has refined it to be even better.

The LEGO Ideas: Ship in a Bottle (no.21313) consists of 962 pieces to build not just the ship and the bottle, but also a traditionally shaped display stand. The completed model measures over 10 x 31 x 10cm.
As we’ve come to expect from LEGO over the years, the attention to detail looks utterly fantastic. The ship model has a crow’s nest, flag, printed sails, cannon, and even gunports. The stand has a wealth of nautical touches, such as a (non-working) compass with spinning needle, as well as globe decorations and a name plaque (‘Leviathan’).
The LEGO Ideas: Ship in a Bottle (21313) will cost £69.99/$69.99 when it goes on sale February 1, exclusively available from LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com.
