According to its US box, the reissued version of 21313 Ship in a Bottle has 953 pieces. That’s nine fewer than the original version, which launched in 2018 and retired last year.
The set’s instructions on LEGO.com tell a different story, though. The inventory at the end of the manual adds up to 962 bricks – the same number as the original 21313 Ship in a Bottle. There’s still 284 trans-blue 1×1 plates, 77 trans-clear 1×2 plates, and one printed wax seal element.
As far as we can tell, then, the difference with 92177 Ship in a Bottle really is only on the box. But unlike the updated set number, the new piece count is actually just an error. Hopefully it’s one that future product runs will rectify, but it won’t be an issue in the UK, where the packaging doesn’t display piece counts.
The LEGO Group has also brought 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V out of retirement as 92177 NASA Apollo Saturn V. Nothing about that set has changed beyond its product number, with both boxes showing its iconic piece count of 1,969.
