Oh my this is cool!
LEGO has released photos of a new Disney Train and Station set coming on September 1 (August 19th for LEGO VIP members–which is Free to sign up for.)
It is modeled after the trains at Disney Parks like Disneyland and Walt Disney World!
The new set will have 2,925 pieces and will include 20 pieces of railroad track (curved and straight!) Completed the station will measure 15 inches tall and will include a steam engine-style train with three cars!
There are five mini-figures including: Mickey Mouse in an engineer uniform, Minnie Mouse, Chip dressed as a conductor, Dale dressed as a conductor and Goofy. It is a bit odd that they went for Chip and Dale over Donald and Daisy, but I’m really excited because we don’t get enough Chip and Dale merchandise!
But Wait There’s More!
This new Disney Train and Station are part of LEGO’s Powered Up line. These LEGO sets use electronics, motors and have sound effects!
In this case, the tender of the Disney train contains a Powered Up hub and train motor. The motor lets the tender move the locomotive, passenger car, and parlor car around the 20 pieces of included track. The hub connects to the Powered Up app, which users can poke at to control the train’s movement and sound effects.- Kotaku
How much will it cost?
Pricing for this new set will be $329.99! But I think it is definitely worth the price if it has electronic elements and sounds! Check out the detailing on this set!
I love it so much! With the Walt Disney World train down right now, it’s a nice to have this at least. We still don’t have word on when it will re-open. Most are guessing some time next year.
If you can’t get to the parks you can spend what you would on like 2-3 one day tickets and get this set instead.
Oh and something else you could do. Decorate it for the holidays. Like get little black trees and pumpkins for Halloween or battery operated Christmas lights and trees for Halloween! You can find that kind of stuff at craft stores! I would totally do that.
