Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s Space Rocket set includes a couple more unique Disney Minifigures and a collection of rather interesting elements including some great printed pieces.

Although on the surface this set seems rather sparse, it does include some unique elements, a few interesting printed pieces and of course two more exclusive Minifigures. There are two Starter Bricks to help budding builders on their way to becoming LEGO Master Builders. These are used to craft a small Space Station and a Rocket. The Rocket in particular looks great with these unique pieces. They aren’t new elements with similar pieces used in various other LEGO sets but the style and printing featured here are unique to this set. The top of the Rocket features a printed window panel with a cheeky alien peeking through it.
The Space Station platform also has a few nice details and elements. The highlight is a 1x5x6 transparent panel that has a camera feed screen printed on it showing the little green aliens causing mischief. I must also mention the little domed section to the right of the screen. The dome element hasn’t been used in many sets, but it looks great as a containment unit for the green crystal, which is also included in a transparent green rock element. This is very rare as it’s only appeared in two other sets and one of those was a Serious Play pack.
A running trait with these Mickey & Friends sets are all-new Minifigures and this set doesn’t disappoint. It includes both Minnie and Mickey, who are both in identical outfits. Their spacesuits are similar to those women by NASA astronauts, with a little Mickey symbol included in the design. It would have been nice if their outfits were finished off an oxygen tank. Now the heads are fantastic, the intricate print detailing to add a helmet to the standard mouse head element is outstanding. As with other sets, the heads use the same element, with Minnie differing from Mouse with eyelashes and a bow.
This is a set that will interest different fans in different ways. Younger builders will be drawn to the rocket, MOC builders will be delighted by the interesting elements and Minifigures collectors will be intrigued by the two exclusive characters. I would have liked a couple more of the little alien creatures but all in all, this is a great little set and I’m very impressed with the detailing on the Minifigures.
