LEGO Ideas JAWS Set Coming with Boat & Shark!

Today the LEGO Group unveils the #21350 LEGO Ideas JAWS set, a brick-built diorama commemorating the infamous 1975 blockbuster movie “JAWS,” from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.

To celebrate the launch, the LEGO Group, in partnership with Universal Products & Experiences, has created the first ever summer “brick-buster” mini-film, “JAWS…in a Jiffy,” a playful recreation of this iconic summer blockbuster movie – told in just 90-secs. The film features all the favorite scenes, plus a surprise minifigure reveal at the end, featuring award-winning director Stephen Spielberg behind the clapperboard.

Directed by Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg, JAWS set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss), and a grizzled shark hunter (Robert Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, JAWS remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history. JAWS will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2025.

The LEGO Ideas JAWS set is a meticulously designed recreation of one of the most famous scenes from the movie, allowing fans to relive the suspense and excitement of Spielberg’s masterpiece in brick form. Originally conceived by LEGO fan Johnny Campbell, via the LEGO Ideas community platform, the 1,497-piece set captures key elements and characters from the film in LEGO minifigure form – including Police Chief Martin Brody, marine biologist Matt Hooper, and sailor Sam Quint. The set also features the iconic Orca boat, with a detailed cabin with a removable roof, an adjustable boom, and rigging, plus lots of recognizable accessories, such as a revolver, compass, fishing rod, harpoon, spear, and the yellow barrels that were pivotal to the movie plot.

The set can either be placed on a brick-built seawater base with the JAWS LEGO shark model attacking the Orca boat. Also attached is a printed tile with Chief Brody’s famous line (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat”) to the base to complete this nostalgic and playful centerpiece. Alternatively, the Shark can be displayed separately from the boat, on its own stand.

Speaking about how he approached the design for the set, fan designer Johnny Campbell, reveals: “JAWS is my favorite movie of all-time, so I really wanted to recreate it in LEGO bricks. LEGO building has always been a part of my life in some shape or form but in order to get all of the finer details, I actually freeze-framed JAWS as I watched it so that I could catch a glimpse of the finer details taking notes as I went along. It is just mind-blowing that my design is now an official LEGO set. I can’t wait to stand in a LEGO shop looking at the shelves and seeing a set that I have been involved with and watching someone buying it. It’s every LEGO fan’s dream!”

The #21350 LEGO Ideas JAWS set is going to be available for LEGO Insiders from the 3rd of August and for all from the 6th of August at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop. Prices are as follows: €149.99 / 129.99 GBP/ $149.99/249.99 AUD/1399 CNY/199.99 CAD/3999 MXN.

    Growing up, I was terrified of this movie and the because of it, the ocean. Honestly, I don’t think it was right to spread so much misinformation about sharks. But anyway, the lego set looks great.
