Disney unveils 100th anniversary Villains LEGO setDisney

LEGO is celebrating Disney's 100th anniversary by honouring some classic villains.

The House of Mouse has created countless iconic villains over the last century, and now, the very best (or worst?) of them have come together in the LEGO Villain Icons set.

This 1,540-piece set is currently available for pre-order for £124.99 and $129.99 and will begin shipping on Thursday, June 1.

LEGO has packed this one with pure evil, including the 'poison' apple from Snow White, Captain Hook's pocket watch from Peter Pan and the Queen of Heart's playing cards from Alice in Wonderland.

The toy giant has also created brick versions of the retro VHS cases for classic films like Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty.

Included are four mini-figures of classic Disney villains: Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), the Evil Quin in disguise from Snow White, Gaston from Beauty and the Beast and the Genie version of Jafar from Aladdin.

When you build everything, the display set stands 7.5 inches (19 cm) tall and 9 inches (23 cm) wide. It's designed for adult collectors aged 18 and up.

An illustrated instructions booklet is included, and builders are also able to use the LEGO Builder app for any help they might need putting this set together.

There's a limit of two purchases per customer on this set, however, since it's being created especially for Disney's 100th anniversary.

Other recent Disney LEGO sets on sale in this celebratory year include the theme park attraction-turned-movie The Haunted Mansion, Mickey and Minnie's 3-in-1 Magic Castle and the best from both Marvel and Star Wars.
