We Need To Make This Steamboat Willie LEGO Set A Reality

As classic Disney fans, we’re obsessed with all things Steamboat Willie—which is why we’re loving the latest LEGO Ideas submission.

If you aren’t familiar with LEGO Ideas, it’s a program that lets fans of the building blocks pitch their own design to the company. A model needs to be created, photographed, and submitted—alongside a convincing proposal as to why the set should become an official LEGO product.

Sounds cool, right? What’s even more exciting is that one of the latest proposals is inspired by the beloved Mickey short. The creator of this set argued his (convincing) case:

“Steamboat Willie is the first fully synchronized sound cartoon directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was the debut of Mickey Mouse in a cartoon, the first to be distributed and the third to be produced,” he says. “So as an animator and a LEGO fan I’d like to pay my respect to that marvelous production, which…inspired a lot of talented artists.”

Can’t argue with that!

This set, which will include 156 bricks, needs to receive 10,000 votes before it has the chance to be reviewed by the company and approved as a new LEGO set. As of this post, the set has received 6,000 votes. With over 160 more days to go, we’re sure with the help of both Disney and LEGO fans, we can make this set a reality.

Just visit LEGO Ideas and vote for this brilliant creation!
