On a personal note I really enjoy the “real” world type sets such as this. The price is set at $149.99 and will be available via the LEGO shop. Read on for all the details.

Our LEGO® designers have included rare colors such as medium azur, dark red, sand blue and sand green. There are rotating gold-colored screw blades leading to the brick-built twin propeller engines, which you can view through the window built into the port side of the ship. You can even customize it by adding or removing the containers.
