LEGO is steaming ahead with its Powered Up smartphone connected line of building sets with the grand unveiling of its new, 2,925-piece LEGO Disney Train and Station.
This working train set doesn’t only come with a $330 price tag, but is also yet another step in LEGO’s mission to bridge digital and physical play, this time with an app that allows players to control and drive the Disney train.
The set uses motors, sensors, and electronic building pieces to bring the creations to life. In this case, the Disney train contains a Powered Up hub and train motor. The motor lets the tender move the locomotive, passenger car, and parlour car around the 20-piece track.
And of course, it carries the Disney license, meaning fans have plenty to explore such as the train station itself, a LEGO recreation of the real world Disney Station. The set comes with five Minifigures, in Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Chip and Dale.
