While the initial box picture has been leaked to no end, here is the official announcement for LEGO Disney’s latest Direct-to-Consumer set!
The LEGO Disney Train & Station (71044) is the long awaited addition to the “ultimate collector” LEGO Disney line that began with the LEGO Disney Castle (71040) back in 2016.
The set features The Walt Disney World Railroad that encircles the park with the station at the entrance of every Disneyland.
There are five exclusive minifigures that come with this set: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Chip, Dale and we are getting our first ever Goofy minifigure!
The Disney Train & Station set also comes with LEGO® Powered Up 88009 Hub and a LEGO Powered Up 88011 Train Motor which means that it can be controlled with your mobile phone or tablet through a downloadable app.
It clocks in at 2925pcs and sports a recommended retail price of SGD$499.90 / US $329.99 / CA $379.99 / DE €329.99 / UK £299.99 / FR €329.99 / DK 2499DKK. This would work out to be approximately 17¢ per piece which isn’t too shabby considering there are five exclusive minifigures included.
The LEGO Disney Train and Station (71044) set will hit the shelves on August 21st for LEGO VIP members and September 1st for the public.
I could totally see this as a complement to the LEGO Disney Castle (71040) where the train could forge a trail through the different Disney attractions. Perhaps we could get a LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean theme ride? Oh wait…
