New Maersk ship set revealed

Lego have announced the latest set in their decades long series of sets featuring vehicles from Maersk's transportation fleet. Having previously released lorries and trains, this time they're returning once more to the Maersk container ship, specifically the record breaking new Triple-E ship.


At a glance 10241 Maersk Line Triple-E is quite similar to the previous big ship set, 10152 Maersk Sealand Container Ship. But it is in fact a big upgrade; presented on a stand, the designers have been able to detail the entire hull, including two golden propellers. Unfortunately the unique Maersk blue colour isn't returning for this set but it does come with "boat loads" of azure blue, which is almost as good, as well as lots of dark red.

Other features include models of the ships engines, complete with a windowed section of the hull, allowing you to peer in to see them. Here's the designer video, which guides us round the set's features:




The Triple-E will be out in January. Continue after the jump for more photos (originally posted on Eurobricks):
