When LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71024 Disney Series 2 was announced yesterday, fans noted that the same Micky Mouse and Minnie Mouse minifigures were included that could be found in the recently revealed LEGO Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie (review). It explained how the minifigures in the Ideas set feature new hat elements, despite new pieces not being availble in the fan inspired theme.
In actuality though, the two minifigures in 71024 Disney Series 2 only feature black and white printing, lacking the silver detailing that makes the minifigures in 21317 Steamboat Willie look extra sharp. Obsessive Disney minifigure collectors will need to buy both products in order to get both variations.
Two events have been announced to celebrate the launch of LEGO Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie with fan designer Máté “szabomate90” Szabó. The talented builder will be at the LEGO Store Disney Springs on April 3, from 5.00pm until 8.00pm. He will be at the LEGO Store Disneyland Paris on April 6, from 10am until 1.00pm.
21317 Steamboat Willie will be released exclusively at shop.lego.com on April 1. 71024 Disney Series 2 will be released on May 1. You can help support Brick Fanatics’ work by using our affiliate links.
