Minifig Beatles all live in a Lego Yellow Submarine

first_imgStay on target As we live a life of ease, every one of us has all we need… Which now includes an official Lego set that features the Fab Four in one of the most iconic images from their musical career.The folks at Lego have always had a knack for turning out brick reproductions of pop culture vehicles. In recent years they’ve offered up Ecto 1 and Doc Brown’s DeLorean, but this fall they’ve opted for a submersible: the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.Why now? Because this year marks the 50th anniversary of the song’s original release. The animated film that featured John, Paul, George, and Ringo on a magical, musical journey beneath the waves came along two years later and provided the inspiration for the set’s design.It’s not one that Lego dreamed up themselves, mind you. The Lego Yellow Submarine was actually born from a Ideas submission. It’s the work of Kevin Szeto — who also has an amazing Thunderbirds project posted right now and a slick old-school electric tram that’s getting very close to the 10,000 supporter mark.His original design has been tweaked a bit by Lego’s design team before heading to retail shelves, as most of the green-lit Ideas sets are. Clearly, they loved the set, though. They went so far as to create their very own animation to accompany its launch:In total, it takes 550 pieces to build the Yellow Submarine, John, Paul, George, and Ringo minifigs and their oddball companion Jeremy. It’s headed to stores on November 1 and will set you back $60, which is pretty typical pricing for an Ideas set like this.
