The only person alive that probably has the means to really live in a yellow submarine beneath the waves with his friends all on board is James Cameron, but the good news is the rest of us will soon be able to build our own little version of that beloved vessel in our own homes with the newest LEGO set: The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
We first learned about this groovy new 550 piece set at Mashable, and beyond the actual iconic yellow sub from the classic 1968 animated musical, the collection will include all four Beatles and a Jeremy figure (a.k.a. the “Nowhere Man” Phud). This latest addition to the LEGO line resulted from the company’s LEGO Ideas program, where fans can build and propose new designs. It turns out there are lots of Beatles fans out there. Who knew!
LEGO even put together a short, fun promotional video for the set, titled “The Beatles’ LEGO Yellow Submarine vs. the Sea Monster,” which pays homage to the movie by having the band save a fisherman in that fantastical, trippy underwater world.
We’re not sure we’ve ever wanted to play with a LEGO set more, and we’re pretty sure we know what album we’d play while doing so.
The Beatles Yellow Submarine LEGO set will hit stores at the start of next month, on November 1st, and will retail in the U.S. for $59.99.
