It has been 90 years since Mickey Mouse made his screen debut in the 1928 animated black and white short titled Steamboat Willie. In celebration of that anniversary, LEGO has unveiled the LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie set which will go on sale from April 1, for S$149.90.
Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse made their first appearance in “Steamboat Willie” on November 18, 1928 and have been winning our hearts ever since! ?Recreate this iconic animation with this new LEGO Ideas set, launching April 1. #MickeyTrueOriginal #Mickey90 #MinnieStyle pic.twitter.com/BlZFYPjzYi

The set will come with 751 pieces so while it will not take all that long to build, it still looks incredibly quiant. Aside from the 751 black and white pieces, the set will also come with a Mickey & Minnie figurine, Mickey’s parrot, Minnie’s guitar and music sheet.
The boat is also big enough for the two minifigs to be posed around on, so both kids and adults can have fun recreating scenes from the animated short, or just display it as the centrepiece at your house.
The Steamboat Willie set will be available from the LEGO website, as well as retail stores after its release.
