Review: We All Want a Yellow Submarine!

Lego recently released a new Beatles Yellow Submarine set and asked the British Beatles Fan Club if we wanted to help them get the word out.  In exchange we were given a dedicated link for our members to use when they order that benefits our club.  They also sent us one to review.

Yesterday it arrived and I am wowed!  The set includes over 500 pieces packed into 5 numbered packets along with a diagram book that walks you through the construction piece by piece.  I have never had a Lego set like this before but even with my lack of experience, I had no issues following the diagrams and in 2 and a half hours I had assembled the entire project.  It was fantastic fun and I'm impressed with the finished product as it is full of detail.

On the outside there are moving propellers, periscopes, colorful artwork and designs as well as a stand to display the finished product, but the inside is just as detailed.  The middle can lift off to expose the inner workings which has a pilot seat, steering wheel, and controls and dials.

Behind the pilot seat is room for the remaining 3 Beatles to sit as well.

Each of the four Beatles figures also have to be assembled and each has something to hold when standing.  Those items need to be stored when they are sitting and another part of the submarine, a sort of submarine boot, also opens to store those item.

Additionally there is a Jeremy figure who has place to stand on the display base.

The quality of this set is high.  All decorations are stamped on - no stickers to fall off over time - and the pieces all fit together nicely.

This set is sure to make a bit hit this holiday season and would be a fun project for a family assemble together while listening to Beatles music.

If you do decide to get this for someone special on your shopping list, please consider using this British Beatles Fan Club link.  The club will benefit and that will help us to keep your membership fees from going up.
