It had been one of the most unconventional set designs ever to pass muster at LEGO Ideas. While we had the photos from the Ideas proposal for reference, the first images of the official set for Ship in a Bottle (21313) took time coming; but when it did, just wow.
Old Fishing Store (21310) may have looked complex and detailed, but it seems not enough compared to the wonder of seeing the scale-model Flagship Leviathan inside a side-mounted bottle. And with its release by LEGO on February looming ever closer, the company is hyping it up as much as possible.
For instance, there’s going to be a series of signing events at selected LEGO stores with the Ideas designer for Ship in a Bottle (21313). Jake Sadovich will get to do as his LEGO Ideas creative predecessors have done before in their time: signing boxes of their freshly-released model sets.
The first scheduled date for Sadovich signing newly-bought boxes of his LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle (21313) will be at the LEGO Store at the Fashion Place in Murray, Utah. He’ll be there on January 27 from 10 AM to 1 PM EST. Lucky Utah builders, meeting him first.
Meeting a LEGO Ideas designer like Jake Sadovich and getting his autograph on your copy of their work is pretty cool. The bonanza for LEGO Ideas Women of NASA (21312) creator Maia Weinstock is one example. It also means an early shot at getting set 21313, coming out February 1.
