LEGO is celebrating 90 years of Disney with a commemorative Steamboat Willie building toy. The 751 piece collectible pays tribute to the Disney short animation, Steamboat Willie and features two new-for-April-2019 minifigures: Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. The two iconic characters come with silver-colored decoration, as well as Mickey Mouse’s parrot figure.
True to the original cartoon, the Steamboat Willie boat features a black-and-white color scheme, hidden wheels, moving steam pipes, rotating paddle wheels, adjustable crane. There are a number of thoughtful elements including the ‘S.S. Willie’ boat name, and the ‘1928’ year sign. The steam pipes also move up and down and the paddle wheels rotate when the boat is pushed along, mimicking the action of the boat in 1928 animated Disney short.
The Steamboat Willie toy boat measures over 5” (15cm) high, 10” (26cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide. You can purchase the collectible for $89.99 from the LEGO webstore, April 1.
