LEGO has teamed with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment to launch a JAWS set.

The 1497-piece set came via LEGO Ideas, where it was conceived by LEGO fan Johnny Campbell. It features the shark and Orca boat, complete with a detailed cabin and removable roof, an adjustable boom and rigging. Accessories include a revolver, compass, fishing rod, harpoon, spear and yellow barrels.

It also includes LEGO minifigures of Police Chief Martin Brody, marine biologist Matt Hooper and sailor Sam Quint.

The set can be placed on a brick-built seawater base with the JAWS LEGO shark model attacking the Orca boat. Also attached is a printed tile featuring Chief Brody’s famous line – “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” – that can be attached to the base.

Alternatively, the Shark can be displayed separately from the boat, on its own stand.

“JAWS is my favourite movie of all-time, so I really wanted to recreate it in LEGO bricks,” said fan designer Johnny Campbell.

“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 LEGO Ideas JAWS set is available from August 6th priced at £129.99.
