Can Buy Me Love: The Beatles Yellow Submarine Now Available
All you need is love! Just kidding. All you need is this incredible LEGO Beatles set. We now live in a world where official LEGO minifigures meant to represent all four members of the legendary rock group The Beatles exists. I can't express just how thrilled I am that the LEGO Ideas The Beatles Yellow Submarine set is now an official LEGO offering. This set - for me - represents a perfect hybrid of my two passions - LEGO and The Beatles [or music in general]. I have been a Beatles fan just as long as I have been a fan of LEGO. I began listening to the Beatles when I was very young. My parents were fans, and they passed their love for the Beatles on to me. I still remember cruising around on my bike listening to Beatles cassettes on my walkman [calm down, hipsters. I know I'm retro-cool]. I mentioned my total love for this project in my previous post regarding this set, but I'll say it again. LEGO and the original designer, Kevin Szeto, have done an incredible job bringing The Beatles to LEGO, and I am very proud to add this set to my collection.
By the way, LEGO has confirmed that all of the graphics in this set are accomplished via printed pieces. That increases the value of this set immensely. Check out the 1x2 printed "Love" tile that the Paul McCartney minifigure is holding in the gallery photographs below. How groovy is that? The set is scheduled to be available on November 1st and will retail for $59.99 USD. What are your thoughts on this set? Are you a huge Beatles fan anxiously awaiting the release an official LEGO Beatles set or are you a MOC designer that can't wait to use the new prints included in this set? Keep the LEGO conversation going in the comments below. I'd love to read your thoughts on this new set!
