Ship in a Bottle is the next of the Lego Ideas sets to be released. It’s coming on February 1st, at £69.99 in the UK and $69.99 in the USA. It has 962 pieces and is set 21313.
It’s a really unique Lego model, and that’s what’s going to make this popular with collectors. It’s the kind of set that in 10 years time people will wish they’d picked up, because it’s so different from what else is being released.
Here’s the full Lego press release…

The 280 water elements are these 1 stud round pieces…
The effect works, but odd that they would call that out as a bullet point. Unless of course you’re in the market for 280 transparent pieces for one of your own builds.
