- May 21st, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Solution To Stuck Smoke StackPirateTad | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfFirst of all I want to say that I LOVE this set. I voted for it on LEGO Ideas and was very happy it was selected for production. However, I had the problem that others have had with the rear smoke stack sticking. I tried the solution provided by LEGO: Gently lift the boat by the stuck smoke stack and set it back down. But it did not work for me. So I partially disassembled the boat to get to the section that surrounds the base of the rear smoke stack to see what the problem was. The parts assembled in Step 109 (pg. 114 of the instructions) seem to be putting too much pressure on the smoke stack base. I found that if I removed Part 4597131 (white 1x4 plate with 2 studs) that is installed in Step 110 (pg. 115), that I could make slight adjustments to the Step 109 parts. This allowed the smoke stack to move freely. I carefully reassemble the set without this part while making sure the smoke stack continued move freely as I went. Once complete, you cannot tell this part has been removed and the smoke stack moves as it should. I know this is not a perfect solution, but it work for me. Hopefully it will help others too.Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Steamboat Willie

This set is so true to the classic form from the classic film! What a brilliant way to celebrate Micky's 90th anniversay. The the monochrome coloring while basic, brings the set alive, along with the smokestacks and paddle wheels for playability Don't be fooled this set is very colorful indeed! I took my time with the buid with many breaks. Although not difficult, the build is more interesting than meet the eye as well! Its mechanical engineering keeps inerest high, and repitition low! Bravo to the designers! I scored an Ideas 24th error box so bravo to LEGO as well for proving we are all human, and can make mistakes! We all know LEGO quality is top of the line regardless of a silly typo, and the mistake was caught fast! Thank you LEGO for releasing an awesome collectors set for Disney, LEGO, Micky, and "Typo First Edition" fans. There is no mistake in LEGO's and Disney's Steamboat WIlly set at all!

- January 27th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazingly Perfect!Ramilla | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI am in love with the Disney LEGO line. It is beautiful and so accurate. The way that Steamboat Willie’s Boat looks just like it did in the cartoons I use to watch when I was younger with my grandparents. I had issues with the stacks as well but I just took apart the boat to the issue area noticed I put one of the LEGO’s in the wrong way and it worked just fine afterwards. The book makes it look odd and different, really pay attention when building your stacks. This set took my son and I awhile to build but it was an amazing opportunity to bond with him and tell him stories about Steamboat Willie and how his great grandparents use to watch it with me when I was little. You can never get that time back. Now I get to look at the finish beautiful accurate product that LEGO did amazingly and see not only my family and my love for Disney but also the memories I made with my oldest son! Definitely go get this if you love Disney! Even if you don’t it is so cool and the stacks move! Also who doesn’t like Disney? If you have kids make it a family day and have fun but remember patience. This is an art piece you will want to display after you finish it. It is that beautiful!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Build Time: 1 days 4 hrs 45 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Steamboat Willie
