Hi, I'm here again presenting my 35th Review in Eurobricks. The Ship In A Bottle! *A quick note. The trans blue plates, dried leaves outside are not included in the set, they are just props throughout the review.* Overview Name: 21313 Ship in a Bottle Theme: LEGO Ideas year 2018 #020 Pieces: 962 pieces (284 of these are trans blue 1x1 plates as the water) Minifigures: 0 Price: £69.99 / $69.99 / 69.99€ Box This is a present that my sister bought from Singapore as shown in the sticker at the lower left corner of the box. The box art is nicely displaying the bottle on a tabletop in a ship with an awesome sunset outside of the window. LEGO Ideas #020 showing that this is the 20th LEGO Ideas set in 2018. Here at the back of the box we can see a kraken chasing the ship and the bottle is landed on the shore. Scale is not quite right but very special and pretty peek through a telescope I think. 1:1 piece was the flag of the ship (no stickers ALL printed). I really love the drawings here. Oh that compass. The content of the box. (I've already built bag 1 before I took this picture.) The distribution of the pieces in the bags are quite neat. Bag1 is the ship, bag 2 trans clear parts, bag 3 water, bag 4 for the base and 4 large trans clear pieces for the top of the bottle. Note that round trans white round dish at the top left corner of bag 4, that's the compass and it is a very nice printed piece. The front page of the instruction booklet is the box art. The Fan design is a bigger bottle compared to the set but it would cost more if the set was that big, so how will you choose? A pricier but bigger bottle or this one will do? (That mosaic human sized tile is not bad at all.) Quite an organised distribution of pieces in bags. This is one special build technique. Pouring the sea water. I love this. Trans Clear parts! LEGO is so amazing that these messy pieces will become a beautiful bottle after they are correctly assembled. Another thing special in this set is to avoid mistakes in the build, LEGO incorporates this 1:1 picture in the instructions for you to check your build. How sweet! This trans clear build is the base of the bottle. They are connected by small parts so it is quite sturdy and hard to remove so try not to make mistake here. Building upwards. Side view of the bottle. Note those four 1x2 jumpers. They are there for the ship to be mounted inside. The top view of the finished bottle. 6002 Trans-Clear Panel 6 x 6 x 9 Corner Convex with Curved Top looks nice as the top part of the bottle. This part is not new but quite rare as it appears in only four sets including this 21313 Ship in a Bottle. I'm so in love with the bottle. The built of the base starting from this brown skeleton. This is a very interesting build as to make the compass look like a bowl, the print of the 44375bpb09 Trans-Clear Dish 6 x 6 Inverted (Radar) - Solid Studs with Vintage Compass Pattern is at the 'wrong' side of the dish quote @makoy. So the studs of this dish are actually at the bottom of the dish. LEGO brilliantly put the yellow 2x2 tiles on two sides of the round plate and invert them like in the picture. Then the build was locked in place using the white 1x4 tile and later covered by the brown plate with quarter circle. I love this unconventional legal build. Masterpiece! This compass is not functional but that gold arrow really add up to the design of the build! This is the part where I'm sold. Turns out the base is even nicer than the bottle itself! The globes are very nice addition to the sides of the base and that arches fitted the bottle perfectly. The word Leviathan is also a very nice print where it carries the meaning of a very large aquatic creature. Any idea why? Turns out that I need to be very careful while 'opening' the bottle to put the ship inside. As you can see here, the top of the mast is actually very close to the 'glass' of the bottle. Extra care is needed to put the ship in and close the top panels. Mesmerizing. That compass lies under the bottle became the 'inner' beauty of the set. The ship is a tight fit in the bottle. You will break the mast trying to push the bar in the plate inside the body of the ship so be extra careful on that. A very nice display set. I really love this very much. Review summary Playability: -/10 - I think it is quite unfair to put this point into consideration in this set. So I'm not counting this in the overall point. You might break something playing with this set. Design / Building Experience: 10/10 - The design is very nice and subtle as a LEGO set. Minifigures: -/10 - No minifigure but I would love a pirate nanofigure in the deck of the ship. Price / Value for money: 9/10 - RM300+ for a set without minifigure. I say the price is for the design of the bottle and the compass. Overall: 9.5/10 - This is a set where non LEGO fan will also like it. My father thought it was a real bottle of wine when I put it on the dinner table! Thanks for reading! I hope you like this review. Do share your thoughts in the comments below!
