‘Jaws’ LEGO set planned for August

A special Jaws LEGO set is planned for release by the legendary building brick company this coming August, according to an official press release. This is awesome and looks like it is coming in at great value too (RRP of £129).

The LEGO Group is teaming with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment for the new set which will hit stores and online for the begging of next month. This meticulously crafted set invites builders to recreate the suspense and excitement of the iconic film, bringing the adventure of the high seas to life, brick by brick, and a surprise minifigure of the iconic film’s director – Steven Spielberg.

Originally conceived by LEGO fan Johnny Campbell, via the LEGO Ideas community platform, the 1497-piece set captures key elements and characters from the film in LEGO minifigure form – including Police Chief Martin Brody, marine biologist Matt Hooper and sailor Sam Quint. 

The Jaws LEGO Set also features the iconic Orca boat, with a detailed cabin with a removable roof, an adjustable boom and rigging, plus lots of recognisable accessories, such as a revolver, compass, fishing rod, harpoon, spear, and the yellow barrels that were pivotal to the movie plot.

The set can either be placed on a brick-built seawater base with the JAWS LEGO shark model attacking the Orca boat. Also attached is a printed tile with Chief Brody’s famous line (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat”) to the base to complete this nostalgic and playful centerpiece. Alternatively, the Shark can be displayed separately from the boat, on its own stand.

Speaking about how he approached the design for the Jaws LEGO set, fan designer Johnny Campbell, reveals:

“JAWS is my favourite movie of all-time, so I really wanted to recreate it in LEGO bricks. LEGO building has always been a part of my life in some shape or form but in order to get all of the finer details, I actually freeze-framed JAWS as I watched it so that I could catch a glimpse of the finer details taking notes as I went along. It is just mind-blowing that my design is now an official LEGO set. I can’t wait to stand in a LEGO shop looking at the shelves and seeing a set that I have been involved with and watching someone buying it. It’s every LEGO fan’s dream!” 

The JAWS LEGO set is available for LEGO Insiders from 3rd August 2024 and for all from 6th August 2024.
