The Beatles‘ Yellow Submarine has been immortalized in Lego.
The 550-piece kit features Lego models of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
The set was the suggestion of Kevin Szeto, who put forward the request to the toy company’s ideas section.
Szeto said, “As an amateur musician and songwriter, 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. The Yellow Submarine is bright, fun, and colourful, which also made it a good subject to translate into LEGO form.”
Lego designer Justin Ramsden said seeing The Beatles in Lego form “is a dream come true”.
He added: “I watched the film when I was younger and was really inspired by how it oozed so much imagination – comparable to how I view Lego elements.
“I’m also a massive fan of The Beatles, having grown up with their music all my life, so to see The Beatles in Lego form is a dream come true.”
The Lego set will be available worldwide in stores from November 1 at a cost of £49.99 (US$60).
