What originally started as a suggestion on Lego Ideas became reality towards the back end of 2016 when the company released their Beatles’ Yellow Submarine Lego set. The 550 piece kit allows Beatles’ fans to take their own surreal trip under the season.
The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine Lego Set
Inspired by The Beatles’ 1968 fantasy musical of the same name, this Lego set contains minifig versions of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Jeremy Hillary Boob (the fictional character voiced by Dick Emery).
The fab four’s set was submitted by Beatles’ fan and muscian Kevin Szeto. Regarding his submission, Szeto has said, “I have always been drawn to the music of The Beatles. The creation of the Yellow Submarine model was really my way of showing my affection for The Beatles, as well as trying to pay a small tribute to The Beatles phenomenon.”
On their website, Lego have the following description for the set, “Build this LEGO version of the iconic Yellow Submarine from the famous 1968 film, and journey back to Pepperland with the Fab Four! The submarine features a removable top for easy play, a cockpit that accommodates the included John, Paul, George and Ringo 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. An ideal gift for fans of LEGO and The Beatles, it’s great for role-play or to create a colorful retro display.”
