It almost came out of nowhere when we first saw its image on LEGO’s December Store Calendar. Just in time before Disney’s Moana hit theaters this month, LEGO has finally revealed its next Disney-inspired set with LEGO Disney Moana on the High Seas (41150). As exciting as the set maybe for most LEGO and Disney fans, the image printed on the December Store Calendar was, unfortunately, a little out of focus. However, thanks to LEGO Club’s Yellow Brick Magazine for the month of November and December (particularly on page 5) we now have a closer look at set 41150, with high res images of Dwayne Johnson’s demigod character, Maui, Auli’i Cravalho’s Moana mini-doll rendition, and a new piece for Moana’s pet chicken, Hei Hei as voiced by Alan Tudyk.
The print on Maui’s big fig version is absolutely superb, staying true to the demigod’s animated tattoos and determined expression. We also get to see a new rooster/chicken figure for Moana’s pet chicken Hei Hei. Love the aggressive look on his eyes, though I must admit that he looks more like a parrot of some sort because of his color scheme. Moana’s minidoll figure is also a little underwhelming which borrows heavily from the LEGO Friends theme. If there is one thing that this set was able to accomplish is the unorthodox combination of big figs and mini-dolls in a single set. I’m pretty sure that Maui’s big fig version will be a must-have for collectors and Disney fans alike.
Thanks to Minifigure Price Guide for the tip. Disney’s Moana set sails to US theaters on November 23, 2016.
