THE BEATLES COLLECTION: YELLOW SUBMARINE



The ‘Beatles Yellow Submarine’, being based on the feature length Yellow Submarine cartoon, featured comic caricature figures of John, Paul, George and Ringo beneath opening front and rear hatches, and a group of four large pericopes that turned as the vessel rolled on its hidden wheels. Early versions were authentic in having one yellow and one white hatch with trime picked out in red and the trim omitted, but overall this 128mm model was a faithful replica.


The last of the Yellow Submarine reproductions, BT78211, is still on sale today. See more The Beatles Collection.
