As a fan of The Beatles, it’s nice to say that the Lego Yellow Submarine is available from today for £49.99 / $59.99. It’s a 550 piece set, so that’s 9.1p / 10.9c per piece.
This is a really great looking display model, with four perfect Beatles minifigures included. It’s obviously more of a display model or a gift than a playset, but I have no problem with that.
Direct from Lego…
The submarine features a removable top for easy play, a cockpit that accommodates the included John, Paul, George and Ringo cartoon minifigures, two rotating propellers, four periscopes, an adjustable rudder, plus assorted accessory elements that The Beatles have collected on their journey. The set also includes a Jeremy figure – on board to help the musicians defeat the Meanies.
The marketing photos for this set are fantastic, so I’ve included a few of them below. Somebody obviously had a lot of fun travelling around Liverpool putting these together.
We’ll do a video review of this one eventually. Too many sets to build!
