LEGO will soon be releasing a new collectible set celebrating two Disney icons in Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. The large-scale buildable characters are for the ultimate Disney fan, allowing for the recreation of memorable moments.
“We always look to design things that people would like to put on their shelf, including my own, which is why we went for the ‘classic’ Mickey Mouse design with the iconic silhouette and colour palette – as a surprise for builders, the characters insides are built from colourful elements inspired by classic outfits worn by the the pair in the past," said LEGO designer Ollie Gregory.
The build comes with complementary accessories to pose with, including a retro camera, a guitar, and a photo album with pictures from the couple's past adventures.
"The Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Buildable Characters are extremely detailed and intricate, and there were lots of challenges to overcome," Gregory added. "For example, to create the tips of their noses we even had to bring back the LEGO Classic Space Helmet in black, which hasn’t been seen since 1987. LEGO fans will also notice that we have debuted a new colour in this set, 363 – TR. Brown with Opalesence, the first time it is included in any set – so there’s lots to explore with this build!”
The LEGO Mickey Mouse stands at 14 inches tall, while Minnie stands at 13 inches. The 1,739-piece set retails for $199.99 and will be available for pre-order beginning July 1.
