These past few months have seen quite a bunch of Disney love LEGO news. We got the Ideas Steamboat Willie set (21317) this April. And in March we had the wonderful announcement of a new batch of Disney collectible minifigures (71024). It was scheduled to release in May. Well, it’s May now so it’s arrived.
In case you need a refresher, the LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71024) consists of 18 minifigs, many of which are new-for-2019. They come in packs of 60 collectible minifigure polybags, priced at $3.99 per polybag. The featured characters run the gamut from Disney Animated films (plus Pixar and Touchstone), to TV series and classic “black and white” shorts.
As has been detailed around the end of March, collectors who would buy a 60-polybag pack can count on having two complete 18-character sets in all. Three new characters are “Chase” variants to hunt down.
The recent introduction of the LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71024) on Shop@Home makes for a rather sparse release wave at the start of May. Still, we can count on the availability of upcoming new sets to pick up again later on. The summer period’s still on after all.
