LEGO Turns the Boat from ‘Jaws’ into an Official Set This August

Horror


You’re going to need a bigger boat this summer, and LEGO is here to deliver. LEGO teased their forthcoming Jaws set on Instagram with a video that playfully riffs on the iconic Jaws poster.

The official 1,497-piece LEGO set will be released on August 1, 2024.

LEGO insider Falconbricks shared a first look at the new set, image below, which was first approved by the LEGO company in May 2023 after the fan-submitted project from Jonny Campbell reached the necessary 10,000 supporters in 2022. The set will retail for $159.99 and features a 14-inch-high LEGO replica of the boat, as well as the iconic shark, which is situated on a wide diorama base. 

As if that’s not enough, expect the set to include three minifigs: Chief Martin Brody, Matt Hooper, and Quint, played respectively by Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw in the Steven Spielberg film.

The news arrives just in time for the Fourth of July holiday, an important date in the blockbuster classic. It all began with Steven Spielberg’s horror classic in 1975, an adaptation of Peter Benchley’s same-titled novel that has been keeping people out of the water for almost 50 years now.

In Jaws, “When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.”

The horror classic spawned three sequels.

With Jaws turning 50 next year and a documentary on the way, expect to see even more Jaws-related news in the coming months.

In the meantime, LEGO’s new set arrives August 1.
