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.

By my count, it's at least 133 stickers. That's got to be an all-time high for a Lego set. :facepalm:

As everyone else said - that's a lot of stickers. That alone will probably throw a lot of people off.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

So... it's basically like a "mini" container ship in scale?
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

Plus lots of them go across multiple bricks (STAMPs?).

Beautiful model, but it does look a little stunted in length. I wonder if the Friends sets are using the colors needed to elongate the ship. Don't really like all the container stickers, I think it would look more realistic with a variety of colors, all over the LEGO palette, you know?
