Official LEGO Product Description – LEGO 21317

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.

Pirate Bay

It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area. A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and 1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark and a dog.

The Office NBC

This LEGO Ideas project is based on the hit-comedy TV show The Office, which aired from 2005-2013. As I watched the show over and over again, I began to wonder what it would be like to recreate the actual film set in LEGO form. Back in the fall of 2015, I decided to create a new LDD file and just experiment with the design of it. I originally had no intent on actually purchasing the pieces to build it, let alone submit it to LEGO Ideas. Well, over two years later here we are. Countless hours spent designing and tweaking every little detail, along with placing special orders that would take weeks to arrive. I’m excited to finally get to share this with you, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
