Last month Lego announced two new sets that spawned from Lego Ideas, the user-created range of sets that's brought classics like the Yellow Submarine, TARDIS, DeLorean, and more. One of the announcements was a Lego rendition of classic-Disney short Steamboat Willie, and the company has just announced it'll go on sale on 1st April.
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#MinnieStylepic.twitter.com/BlZFYPjzYi

It's going to cost £80, and comes packing 751 pieces. So it's not going to be the most taxing build, but it still looks quite nice. Pretty different from the original, actually.
It's bigger, with enough room for two minifigs, and much more detailed as a result. It's pretty nice to be honest, even if it is lacking some of the colour you might expect from other themed sets. But hey, the cartoon was black and white, so anything else would be sacrilege.
The set will be available from the Lego website, in store, and (presumably) in third party retailers.
