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.

Kakapo, a parrot bird that resides in New Zealand reaches 10 000 supporters. This is a flightless bird and is currently endangered. Congrats to FlancrestEnterprises. More details about this creation can be found on LEGO Ideas.
The kākāpō (Strigops habroptila)is an iconic flightless, nocturnal parrot that is endemic to New Zealand. The kākāpō is critically endangered with a population of only 149 individuals.
I chose to design and build a kākāpō as I am passionate about New Zealand and its unique wildlife. Weighing in at whopping 251 grams, this build is made of 473 parts and measures 10cm x 22cm x 9cm (or 10cm x 22cm x 22cm with the wings fully extended).
Features posable wings and tail feathers
Great display piece, or fully swoopable if you’re into breaking rules
The eyes are printed tiles as found in the Brickheadz sets
