If you’ve got some holiday money to spend and are looking for a LEGO set with over 170 of the same sticker, then 10241 Maersk Line Triple-E is the set for you. Built as an exercise for the OCD to see just how straight and parallel one can apply those rows and rows of stickers, the set contains 1,518 pieces, measures a little over 2′ feet long, and will run you $149.99.

Announced at LEGO Fan Weekend in Skærbæck, Denmark, the newest direct-to-consumer was unveiled: 10241 Maersk Line Triple-E. This is the largest LEGO Maersk set to date with 1,518 pieces. Due to be released in January 2014, this set will cost US $149.99.
The Maersk Line Triple-E ship is the world’s largest container ship at 400 meters long and 59 meters wide and is also the most efficient, helping Maersk win “Sustainable Ship Operator of the Year” award in July 2011. The Triple-E is short for their design principle: Economy of scale, Energy efficient and Environmentally improved. A total of 20 ships have been ordered, with about half already either in service or under construction.
We have images, a designer video, and the official press release below.
