LEGO fans in close proximity to Disnyland paris may wish to consider a trip to the theme park’s local LEGO Store, as the fan designer of the new Mickey Mouse set, LEGO Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie (review), is appearing today. Máté “szabomate90” Szabó will meet eager LEGO and Disney fans to say hello and sign setsfrom 5.00pm until 8.00pm.
Using 751 pieces, including special printed elements, the set that is inspired by the black and white Steamboat Willie short will be released on April 1. It includes two specially decorated minifigures – Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse – who were introduced in the short for the very first time. The set will be available exclusively at shop.LEGO.com.
The LEGO Ideas team recently explained why the two minifigures in the new model got a touch of silver, which distinguishes them from the similar minifigures that appear in LEGO Collectible Minifigures 71024 Disney Series 2.
