Mickey Mouse is coming back to Duplo [News]

After recent leaks that 2016 would bring us a Disney-themed Collectible Minigifures line, we now have some confirmation that there is going to be more of everyone’s favourite mouse in the LEGO world. On LEGO’s official Instagram account, this short Mickey animation was posted:

Get ready for a visit from a very special #LEGODUPLO guest! We are so excited!

The brief looped video shows a rough outline of a Mickey Mouse Duplo minifigure. While Mickey Mouse and co. have had the LEGO treatment before, that was 15 years ago in 2000. The “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” also includes Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck, so expect to see those soon.

LEGO official Wall•E set finally revealed [News]

LEGO has raised the curtain on its latest set, 21303 Wall•E. This is our first official glimpse of the finished product since an official Wall•E set was announced over a year ago, and we’re excited to bring our readers a full hands-on review of this set tomorrow!

21303 Wall•E

LEGO Ideas member MacLane is an animator and director at Pixar Animation Studios, and built his original WALL•E model around the same time the character was being built digitally at Pixar in late 2005. Since then, Angus has refined his model, most recently by collaborating with LEGO Designer Steen Sig Andersen and WALL•E director Andrew Stanton to bring the official LEGO Ideas version to life.
You’ll be able to purchase your own WALL•E starting September 1, for a recommended retail price of $49.99 / EUR 49,99.

You can read the rest of the press release over at the LEGO Ideas blog.

Elsa’s Ice Castle from Disney’s Frozen in LEGO

Last year, Disney unleashed Frozen upon us, and since then, everyone has heard “Let it Go” in one way or another. Every parent has heard the soundtrack, and probably has contemplated hiding it.

Simon MacDonald (SIMAFOL) has gone one step further, creating a minifigure-scale version of Princess Elsa’s castle.

“I wanna stuff some chocolate in my face!”

Inspired by his favorite song from the hugely popular Disney movie Frozen, Ian Spacek recreated this moment from the scene in which Anna sings the movie’s “I want” song – For the First Time in Forever.

Ian recently unveiled this at Brickworld Chicago, where I was lucky enough to see it up close. And fortunately, our pals from Beyond the Brick were there to interview Ian all about the build too. Wanna know how many log bricks it took to make that roof?! Watch and find out…

A feast for the eyes

As popular as LEGO’s Mixels line has become, I must admit to me they are just great “parts packs”. And now I have more eyeball bricks than I know what to do with! But it’s heartening to see how these new parts seem to have stimulated a minor surge in character-based builds since the line’s introduction back in March.

Case in point: Serbian builder Djordje uses them to great effect in this recreation of Goofy, everyone’s favorite …erm, what the heck is he again?

Evil Queen disguised as the Old Hag to see Snow White

“All alone my pet?”

As a kid the Old Hag scared me a lot, still does to this day, but this delightful rendition of the Old Hag from Snow White by Millie McKenzie (Leda Kat) is amazingly cute and adorable:

Snow White - Old Hag

The Old Hag is the fantastic centerpiece to the build, but I really like how she framed the build and all the details in the window, the broom and the chair.
