Danish toy brick building group Lego has unveiled its plans for a Lego-version of Maersk Line’s record breaking Triple-E, aka the world largest containership.

Built from over 1,500 bricks (1,518 to be exact), the model includes rotating gold-colored propeller blades, brick-built twin 8-cylinder engines, viewing window into the engine compartment, adjustable rudders, detachable lifeboats, removable containers, rotating crane arms and a special ‘good luck’ coin under the mast. For you enthusiasts out there, the model also boasts a rare color scheme with medium azur, dark red, sand blue and sand green.

The model is expected to go on sale in January and is priced at $149.99 in the U.S.

Interesting fact, the Triple-E model is the 8th (and largest) Lego version featuring the Maersk theme, according to Brickipedia. Previous models have included three trucks, three ships and a train.
