After nearly a decade in operation, the popular ongoing LEGO Ideas project has generated almost two dozen unique fan-designed LEGO sets, including the “Ghostbusters” ECTO-1 vehicle, WALL-E, and the upcoming “TRON: Legacy” Light Cycle. And next month, brick builders will be able to get their hands on a very imaginative creation: the LEGO Ship in a Bottle.
Originally designed by LEGO Ideas user Jake Sadovich, the Ship in a Bottle was selected for approval in August of 2017 after reaching 10,000 votes on the crowd-sourced website.

Also included is an intricately-crafted LEGO cork and display stand. Today LEGO revealed the following first-look images of the set and its attractive packaging:
