Lego has launched a set which pays homage to The Beatles 1968 Yellow Submarine film.

The 550-piece-kit, also comes with matching mini-figures of legendary band members Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

The design was masterminded by musician and Beatles fan, Kevin Szeto, who submitted the request to Lego's ideas section.

The Lego set even includes a mini figure of Jeremy Hillary Boob – a fictional character from the film, which was voiced by Dick Emery.

As the Guardian reports, amateur musician said of the creation: "I have always been drawn to the music of The Beatles. The creation of the Yellow Submarine model was really my way of showing my affection for The Beatles, as well as trying to pay a small tribute to The Beatles phenomenon."

Lego designer Justin Ramsden said seeing The Beatles in Lego form “is a dream come true”.

The Lego set will be available worldwide in stores from 1 November for £49.99.
