Lego announces new 811-piece memorabilia-filled set for the ultimate Disney fan

If you’re a fan of Disney, it’s truly a great time to be alive. In just three short months, on Monday, Oct. 16, it will officially be the company’s 100th anniversary. If you haven’t been paying attention, Disney has been celebrating with new rides, movies, toys, special events, parties, attractions and more since late January 2023.

The newest addition to the ongoing celebration is a collaboration with Lego resulting in a kit called the Walt Disney Tribute Camera

What is the Lego Walt Disney Tribute Camera?

The Walt Disney Tribute Camera is an 811-piece Lego set for adults. It includes a highly detailed, vintage-style movie camera, a multiplane camera, a director’s clapperboard, five figures (Bambi, Dumbo, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Walt Disney) and more. This fitting tribute from Lego celebrates Disney’s anniversary, as is evident by the cleverly placed “100” on top of the camera.

While all of these accessories make it a highly desirable kit, it’s the attention to detail that makes it a must-have for Disney super fans. For example, the vintage camera has a hinged back panel that reveals a secret surprise inside. Also, the multiplane camera features three printed screens that illustrate how Disney’s “The Old Mill” short was made. And there are several moving parts, such as a rotating crank, a moveable stick on the clapperboard, rotating lenses and more.

One of the most exciting features, however, is the included Disney film strip. This fun accessory has stylized Lego stills from 20 historic Disney films. If you are a true fan, not only will you be able to name every movie, but every character that is depicted as well.

When and how can you get the Walt Disney Tribute Camera Lego set?

If you’re excited and want to get this just-announced Disney and Lego collaboration, the bad news is it won’t ship until Sept. 1. The good news, however, is you can secure your collector’s item kit by pre-ordering. The Walt Disney Tribute Camera is $99.99, with a strict limit of only three per customer. If you want to be sure you get one (or three) of these in time for the 100th-anniversary celebration, it’s wise to order today.
