Official Details of 21313 Ship In A Bottle

The latest LEGO Ideas product has officially been announced and I suspect that a lot of people are going to want this as a display piece.

Introducing 21313 Ship in a Bottle

21313 Ship in a Bottle

Based on the original idea by JakeSadovich77 the Ship in a Bottle set features a brick built ship named the Leviathan inside a wonderfully designed brick-built bottle. The set also features an impressive display stand.

There are a lot of fantastic details on this set, the cork in the bottle looks great, as does the compass on the display stand. Creating large clear structures is not something that is normally associated with LEGO bricks and I think the final design did an impressive job of creating the bottle. I love the wax seal element on the bottle too.

The ship itself features three sets off sails, all featuring a printed element with a representation of the Leviathan beast.

To add to the overall aesthetic over 280 translucent-blue 1×1 round plates are included to represent water.

My only real complaint about the set is that the fan model featured rigging created with string while the final model doesn’t. I think it added to the overall look of the ship and I would have liked to see it incorporated in the final model. It may be a case of it was to difficult to add that in to a retail model.

The set will be released February 1st (no VIP release) with an Australian RRP of $119.99.

    I’m looking forward to this model. I don’t see much play value so it will be a display model only.

  2. Sam says:

    Great original design but the LEGO Ideas team really comprised on quality to reduce the original piece count of over 1,800 to 962.
    The ship has therefore lost all it’s charm & intricate details. I will be asking the original designer for building instructions so I can build the ship the way it was intended.

    • Michael says:

      You’ll have to mod the bottle to fit the original ship design.

      I am hoping to get the set and try and tweak the design
