Nothing spells instant classic like taking an old idea and combining it with something new – in this case, the old favorite craft project the ship in a bottle combined with the relatively new LEGO Ideas brand. And so we have the LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle, perhaps the only LEGO project that won’t hurt to step on (as long as you don’t slip and fall).
The chief innovation of the LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle is that the bottle itself is made out of transparent LEGO bricks. Call me ignorant if you must, but doesn’t that defeat the entire purpose of the ship in a bottle concept, which is the mystery of how the ship got into the bottle in the first place. Oh, never mind, just look at how cool it looks:

LEGO fan Jacob Sadovich reportedly came up with the LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle, but outside of that you’ll have to depend on LEGO Ideas itself for more info, like when it will be available and at what price.
