The set will be available to the general public on August 6 for $150, but anyone who is signed up to the Lego Insiders loyalty program will be able to buy it early, starting August 3. You’ll have the option to build the set on a base that’s meant to serve as the ocean for the scene, so you can mount the shark in the right position to make it look like it’s attacking the boat. You can also display the shark and boat as separate pieces, with a stand for the former. One of the tiles in the water set will have the line: “You’ll need a bigger boat.”

The intense showdown between a group of shark hunters and a human-devouring great white shark has never looked so family-friendly. Check out the LEGO Jaws at a Glance set to really get you in the mood.
