Maersk container ship back at shop.LEGO.com

Posted by ,
Maersk Line Container Ship

One of the best sets ever made, 10155 Maersk container ship, is available once more from shop.LEGO.com in Europe. Its price has been reduced, too, from £102 to £82 in the UK and from €109 to €87 in Germany.

This set, and the one it replaced (10152, different stickers), have been available on and off since 2004 which is pretty remarkable because I'm sure at the time in 2004 LEGO said that it would be a short run and the last set to use Maersk blue because they had no more granulate in that colour...

So, If you don't already have one, I highly recommend you buy it now before it really is too late. As I say, it is one of the finest models ever released.

(Thanks bezetkace who emailed and roxio in the forum for the news)

Typo in the heading Huw. I don't seem able to change it. shop = ship.

How do I order one in the United States?

It doesn't seem to be available in NA: I suspect LEGO found a stash at the back of their warehouse in Europe so it's available only in countries that are served from there.

Anybody willing to order and ship for me to the US. With double points, free shipping and the fact that it's on sale hopefully we could work something out where we both get a good deal. If anybody is interested please let me know, I've been wanting to get one of these for a while now.

I ordered a Maersk ship, €87 is a pretty good deal.

Flump- where are you?! ("N/A"?)
Is this proof that you really do live in a place so bad even Brickset can't bring itself to name it?? :P

Token on-topic-ness: hmm should I buy one of these just for Maersk blue bricks? Probably no, should be saving my pennies :-)

Too bad that it won't be available in NA.

Lego said they were doing the 10152 to use up the last of the Maersk blue granulate. But it sold so well that they did a second production run of 10152, using a new load of granulate (in a slightly different shade). And of course; since then as well as the 10155 re-issue, we've had the Maersk train too . . .

N/A means 'not applicable'; so he's probably using an anonymiser ... or he's transcended mere mortal existence?

Great that the Maersk ship is available again, even if only for a few hours/days.

Well I have submitted and ordered one due to the High Recomendation from Huw. plus free shipping and vip rewards. I have gotten into ships lately. Been collecting the older Lego boats. Shame this dose not have a hull that floats on water, maybe on the next re-release.

I have one of these and it is a good model.
It would need to be about 6 times larger to be close to scale with the harbour, other lego ships and container lorries!!!

Ordered for €87 from LEGO Germany minus €20 VIP points + free p&p = €67 => BARGAIN.

I've ordered it a few moths ago for 76,99€ at sale but if i haven't i'd buy it now.

Hey, is this mini figure scale?

Nope.

I chose the train over the ship as I thought the train would look great going around under the christmas tree with
Some little presents on the wagons.

^ I'll change our title so as not to imply their gender :-)

Maersk blue is slightly greener than the normal blues in LEGO's palette.

I don't see what the big deal is with this set. I'd honestly take the Maersk train over this any day, and at least that's minifig scale.

It seems to be already sold out: you can't find it anymore on the shop website. BTW, mine will be shipped soon...

I never knew this existed until I got my 2012 Lego calendar.
