LEGO MetalBeard’s ship in stock & more!

by admin on March 2, 2014

in LEGO Movie

The #70810 The LEGO Movie MetalBeard’s Sea Cow is now available to the general public, not just VIP members! We have talked about this set before (see press-release, pictures and designer-video here: LEGO MetalBeard’s Pirate Ship Available!)

Today I would like to share with you an review-video as well so you get an even better perspective on MetalBeard’s giant pirate ship. And make no mistake; this set is huge! As you will see in the BrickShow review video, they had a hard time just the get the whole thing within view. 🙄

Awesome, isn’t it? I really like the pirate/steam-punk look and all the crazy details. It is also interesting to note how many people are in love with that double-decker couch (if you participate in social-media websites you know what I mean). Of course Emmet’s famous couch is an important part of The LEGO Movie, and MetalBeard’s Sea Cow is the only set where you can get it. A lot of people are hoping that it will also appear in a smaller set, but at this point there is no sign of that…

If you are interested to pick up MetalBeard’s Sea Cow or the other The LEGO Movie sets, they are available at the Online LEGO Shop. Also, I would like to mention here that the other 2014 LEGO sets that were listed in mid-February but then all showed as sold out are also now back in stock (just follow the links to get them). This includes LEGO Mixels, the 2014 LEGO Star Wars sets, the 2014 LEGO Legends of Chima sets, LEGO Disney Princess sets, the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO DC Super Heroes sets, and even the highly sought-after and long sold-out #21050 LEGO Architecture Studio set is now back in stock! 🙂

Shop LEGO Movie Sets

Also, this month you will receive a free exclusive LEGO Super Heroes Martian Manhunter minifigure with orders of $75 or more, and of course free shipping for orders of $75 or more. The Martian Manhunter is also available for our friends over in Canada and the UK (see banner-links at the end of this post). So there are some great things to be had this month! 😀

Thus set will certainly set sail to more sales than the POTC ships. This has all the appeal and real feel of the movie. An excellent choice for Lego but the price point and possibly the instruction manual may not be for the young but rather the young at heart.

Steven, yeah, this is definitely not a kid’s set; neither the instructions, the number of pieces, or the price-point. In fact the recommended age on the box is 14+. So although it is a fun looking set it is for the more serious LEGO builder and collector. I think this is the largest, or one of the largests non-licensed set LEGO ever made. Very sweet indeed. 😛

When I was about 8, I stayed up all night building LEGO Hero Factory Witch Doctor, Black Phantom, and Rocka XL all in one night. My mom found them on clearance. They were about 7.00 per kit. They were going fast, and she grabbed some of the last ones. I am 10 now.

I think this is The LEGO Group’s first official response to steampunk builders.

Actually Level 4 of the Master Builder Academy is dedicated to steampunk. 😉

It’s a shame MBA never got a wider release, though. It was way too expensive and only available in the US. I tried looking for the manuals on Lego.com but they weren’t available.

Yes, it is a shame. It is a wonderful program. I’m very surprised that it didn’t have a wider release. At least Europe. My understanding is that Europeans are very much into learning toys. Maybe it was logistically too difficult to run the program when MBA was on a subscription basis, but now that they are basically just boxed sets, I don’t see what it holding them back from distributing the sets wider. 😕

Admin, I think I’m going to write a post about the basics of stop motion. Is that OK?

Reply

admin March 2, 2014 at 12:55 PM

That’s an excellent idea! 😀

lego ff March 2, 2014 at 2:34 PM

Thanks. I am going to start writing it soon. I’m going to put Jane’s Brain in it.

That sounds Awesome! I like to do stop motion on my 3DS. I tried to make a Ninjago movie but it turned out bad after I tried to change the camera angle in one scene (turning)

my goodness Metalbeard is small 0.0
Maybe when I get enough pieces, I will make a ship that is the right size for the BIG Metalbeard, lets see how many pieces would that take…..

This set is just awesome. The details it comes with are great for minifigure accessories (6 Indiana Jones whips, for example) and MOC details. But I agree with its not being a child’s set, too bad that doesn’t hold true in my family. I’m the only brother 14+, yet we all get to build it. I know it’s mean, but… 😕 . Anyways, today I built bag 2 of the Sea Cow. Vitruvius and the double decker couch are great! They’re with Wyldstyle next to me right now.
My only problem with the couch is that it can fold over backwards easily, and needs to be constantly adjusted. 😕 Otherwise its cool. 😉

admin March 2, 2014 at 8:04 PM

LOL! You have to show your family that the set can only be built by 14+ year-olds! It says so on the box. 😉

BLProductions March 2, 2014 at 8:36 PM

We don’t really pay attention to the age range. I have sets labeled 5-12 😀

Reply

admin March 3, 2014 at 9:31 AM

Yeah, mean either. But it could be a good escuse to get some grubby hands off my LEGO. :mrgreen:

Reply

Lloydguy March 2, 2014 at 8:05 PM

it cannot. the one by two part of the two by three piece keeps it from folding back

Kim March 2, 2014 at 7:26 PM

It’s definitely cool but doesn’t fit with any of my theme except for the need of a double-decker couch. So, if those instructions get online I’ll definitely be gunning to build one of those. =D

Reply

Kim March 2, 2014 at 7:28 PM

The set is definitely cool but the price point is prohibitive and it also doesn’t really fit in with the rest of my ascribed themes, well, except for the double-decker couch. When the instructions get online, I’ll definitely be building a few of those.

admin March 2, 2014 at 8:06 PM

Just the other day I saw someone building a triple-decker couch for Emmet. I guess the fun never ends! 😛

Micho March 3, 2014 at 11:03 AM

Well, hopefully I will be in Disneyland this 18th, so I’m stopping by The LEGO store there to play with the Sea Cow.. I wont buy it yet, but I just wanna have it in my hands, most of the time the employees will let me handle the display 😀

They do?! At the Downtown Disney store all the displays are under glass. 🙁
