LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle Coming Next Month

After completing a ship in a bottle kit, screenprinter Jake Sadovich of Garden City, Idaho decided to make a LEGO one. Soon after, he submitted his model to LEGO Ideas where it quickly gained the community support it needed to be reviewed to put it into production and sold around the globe.

In an interview with LEGO Ideas, he was asked how he felt about getting the “magic 10,000 votes” from the community, “Awesome and kind of strange. Excitement at reaching the 10K mark, and in just 48 days! A great feeling of satisfaction that so many people liked my creation and gratitude that they took the time to support it and make this happen.”

It is up on their website with it hitting store shelves Feb 1.   (more…)
