The Little Mermaid model so far, from its minifigures to features.

With its release date scheduled for May 4, 2023, we’re taking a closer look at the contents of this creation and have found six interesting things worth keeping an eye out for.

6 – Unique prints  

The exclusive minifigures in

cover some characters that have had minifigures before – Ursula and Ariel – but for their animated versions.  

Despite this, new prints have been used to better reflect the live-action adaptation, including purple details on Ursula’s specialised body element. 

5 – A familiar crown

The mini-doll’s stylised eyes have been replaced by that of a minifigure, leaving more empty space on the face but otherwise a change in hair colour is the only difference. 

4 – Whozits and whatzits galore

The areas represented in

include King Triton’s throne rock, Ariel’s hideout and Ursula’s cave. Ariel’s hideout is recognisable thanks to the shipwreck and the various treasures that she has collected. 

This includes the relatively rare hourglass piece in light brown, which is only featured in three other sets at the time of writing. 

3 – A not-so-beautiful back

The back of

isn’t quite as attractive as the front.

The purpose of this detaching is unclear, but the

listing for the set mentions surprises to find alongside this image.
