The 962-piece LEGO Ship in a Bottle set features a highly detailed ship which then sits into a brick-built bottle and on a display stand. Priced at €84.99/£69.99/$69.99, the set is available directly from the LEGO store.
The ship itself features an incredible level of detail – including a raised deck at the stern, Captain’s quarters, six cannons, three masts, a crow’s nest, and even printed sails.

The bottle features a buildable cork stopper – and even a wax seal-type element for ‘sealing’ the bottle. And don’t forget the necessary water (comprised of 280 translucent blue bricks) for the ship to sail in!
Now that the ship is in the bottle, it’s time to display it – just like the real thing. The level of detail continues with a ‘Leviathan’ nameplate, a built-in compass (non-functioning), two globe elements and intricate gold detailing.
We love this video which shows the ingenuity of the Ship in a Bottle set – in true LEGO style!

How Does LEGO Ideas work?

He decided to build a replica in LEGO brick form and submitted it to LEGO Ideas – his creation reached the qualifying 10,000 votes, was reviewed and ultimately created by LEGO for the retail market.
Jake said he wanted LEGO fans to have “the satisfaction of a challenging build. as well as the enjoyment of a beautiful display piece”.
