Those are some big swords.

Most of those Mechs are Mybuild kits. Found them on Amazon. Pretty affordable, and really good quality for off-brand. I’ve been working on more original designs since. The green one is an original build.

Introducing LEGO® Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie


Hoot Hoot!! It's with huge delight we're able to reveal the first official images of Disney's TrueOriginal Mickey Mouse as known from his original screen debut appearance. Please welcome LEGO® Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie.

Originally submitted by LEGO Ideas members Máté Szabó (a.k.a. szabomate90) in June 2016, it was adapted into the official LEGO version by LEGO Designer John Ho with all the decorated elements and Minifigures created by Graphic Designer Crystal Marie Fontan.

This 751 element LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie set will be available from shop.LEGO.com and LEGO stores around the world from the 1st of April, 2019 (and it's not an April Fool's joke) for a recommended retail price of USD $89.99 / UK £79.99 / EURO 89.99 (*EURO pricing varies by country. For regional prices please visit shop.LEGO.com).


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.

With the gloves Disney would sue them.

But it's not complete without animals misused as music instruments.

I already have a paper version of that on my desk. Don't have room for a LEGO version, sadly...
