LEGO x Disney revealed a new Disney theme park-based set, 71044 Disney Train and Station. This 2,925 piece train set will cost $329.99 USD / $379.99 CAD / £299.00 GBP. It will be available September 1st, 2019 with VIP Early Access on August 21 (that’s next week!).
The set faithfully recreates the train station you see as you enter Disneyland Park and the passenger train that takes guests around the perimeter. If there was any real life train that lends itself to LEGO as a medium, this would be it; uou’d be hard pressed to find a better example.
I guess this is a theme now? Disneyland Park attractions? First there was the castle set, which I imagine a lot of you out there right now are thinking, “Oh is that still available? Maybe I should get it before it’s discontinued.” Well, good (or bad) news, it is. But let’s say you already own the castle because of the delicious Disney minifigs. Well, be prepared to dish out the money for this set because this one has all new ones: Mickey Mouse in conductor overalls, Minnie Mouse in a red dress with what I believe to be a cloth skirt, Chip & Dale in ticket taker uniforms, and finally a Goofy minifigure.
A Disney sub-sub-them probably isn’t the worst idea. I mean, there already is a theme park sub theme going on in the Creator Expert line with the ferris wheel, carousel, and roller coaster. You could sprinkle in a couple of Disney-flavored rides in between.
What I wouldn’t give for a Star Tours Starspeeder 1000.
