21317 - Steamboat Willie

Recommended Posts



Disney Mickey Mouse fans will love this LEGO® Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie building toy marking the 90th anniversary of the most famous cartoon character ever. Mickey Mouse made his screen debut in a 1928 black-and-white animated short film called ‘Steamboat Willie’, which was also the first Disney film to have synchronized sound. 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. An ideal LEGO set for kids and adults to recreate scenes from the original Mickey Mouse cartoon or simply build and display this striking monochrome model.

Why is it that only trash seems to make the grade in the IDEAS theme these days? Disney this, Disney that... I'm getting quite bored of it now.

It'll keep Adventure Time and Exo Suit company.

I don't think it's fair to put this in the same category as Adventure Time. Am I interested in the set? No. Are there rabid Disney/Mickey fans who will enjoy the novelty of this set? Absolutely. Maybe these will get sent out in shipping boxes that use Adventure Time sets instead of air packets for cushioning.

Such an oddly artsy nostalgia trip back to both Disney and Fabuland here. I can understand somewhat the "another Disney related product" groan and yet here is an expected idea needing to be done for a long while I feel. Whether the reason is pure or puerile, everyone knows about Steamboat Willie even if they never watched the original short from start to finish. I would agree Pete should have been included alongside Mickey & Minnie; however I doth wonder which way LEGO would have designed him considering his first design is well away from how he is presently. My only negligible critique being the boat build is shorter than it was in the cartoon but again a rather trivial note honestly. Now if anyone wants to MOC the entire ship to scale, I would be impressed.

Since I see no other time better, here is the historical animation.

The paddles better pump the steam pipes up and down.

The build looks like it just may work that way and knowing LEGO how they love cramming in as many play features as possible. In the off chance such isn't included, it might not be so difficult to implement after all.
