LEGO has released its first ‘official’ (aka non-leaked) image of the next LEGO Ideas set slated to be released this January. Released via its social media channels, this fan designed LEGO set from Jacob Sadovich features his original Ship in a Bottle, Flagship Leviathan, which was successfully considered to be an official LEGO Ideas set during the LEGO Ideas Third 2016 Review Stage.
As I mentioned in my previous post, there was a leaked image of 21313 that made its rounds over LEGO fan forums and Instagram which allowed us a first look at the set. I love how the designers recreated the bottle’s overall, streamlined appearance. Its base was thoughtfully recreated as well, and attention to detail was evident on how the cork was made using reddish brown and gold LEGO pieces. However, I expect that the ship’s design will be more faithful to Jacob’s original creation which is more realistic and aesthetically impressive.
The LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle (21313) is expected to be released anytime soon this January, so more official images will be out anytime soon.
