All aboard! Disney and train fans, buckle up. This looks like a stunning set! LEGO has officially announced 71044 Disney Train and Station. It’s not cheap by any means, but wow, it looks great.
Here’s what you need to know – it’ll be available for VIPs on August 31st, and for general release on September 1, costing US $329.99 / DE €329.99 / UK £299.99 / $549.99 AUD. It contains 2,925 pieces, and is not just the train, but the station, track, and some awesome minifigures.
A while ago now, when I gave away a full set of Disney CMFs, I asked you all what you wanted to be in the next series of Disney CMFs, and Goofy was well and truly the winner, taking one fifth of the votes. Well, your wishes have kind of been granted – Goofy has been included in this set!
In addition to Goofy, we get Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale, and some stunning details dotted around the station. It appears that rather than use the new moulded skirt element for Minnie, TLG have opted for a cloth version.
The train makes use of the new Powered Up control system, so it’s all controlled via your smart device, and as well as driving it, there’s also realistic sounds that come from the train too.
The train includes the locomotive, coal tender, passenger car, and parlour car, with plenty of room for the minifigures.
The station is chock full of nice details, including Mickey building a LEGO set, a couple of microscale trains, and more. The exterior details look fantastic, and I love the greebling on the top, using black handcuffs for the ornate railing.
I’ll let the images speak for themselves, and following some more images, there’s the press release with all the details.
