LEGO revealed the first pictures and information Oct. 12 of its new set based on the Beatles' movie “Yellow Submarine.” The company said the set, to be available Nov. 1, will feature over 550 LEGO bricks and figures that represent the four Beatles in “Yellow Submarine” costumes.

According to the description, you can “take a surreal trip under the seas in the LEGO® version of the Yellow Submarine from the iconic 1968 animated musical fantasy film inspired by The Beatles. Ideal for display or role-play fun, the Yellow Submarine features loads of cool, authentic details including a cockpit for the included mini figures of John, Paul, George and Ringo.”

Creator Kevin Szeto said the set is his tribute to the Beatles. “The creation of the Yellow Submarine model was really my way of showing my affection for The Beatles, as well as trying to pay a small tribute to The Beatles phenomenon. " Designer Justin Ramsden said he was also a big Beatles fan and called the LEGO model “a dream come true.” The U.S. list price is $59.99, though some dealers will certainly have them cheaper.
