LEGO has just announced the release of this fantastic 751-piece "Steamboat Willie" LEGO set.
The set, released on April's Fool Day (but no joke, it's a real set), aims to celebrate the birthday of Mickey Mouse who made his screen debut in the 1928 black-and-white animated short film "Steamboat Willie."
This LEGO brick version of the S.S. Willie features steam pipes that move up and down and paddle wheels that rotate when the boat is pushed along. The boat’s bridge has room for a minifigure and play-inspiring nautical details such as the ship’s wheel, life buoy and buildable bell. On deck there is a working crane to lift the ‘potato bin’ cargo aboard and this unique toy building set comes with new-for-April-2019 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse minifigures, each with special silver-colored decoration, plus a parrot figure.
