LEGO Walt Disney Camera Available for Pre-Order

LEGO released numerous sets this year to celebrate Disney’s 100th Anniversary, like the #43212 LEGO Disney Celebration Train, the #43217 LEGO Disney Up House, the #43221 LEGO Disney 100 Years of Disney Animation Icons, the #43226 LEGO Disney Duos, the #43227 LEGO Disney Villain Icons, the #43222 LEGO Disney Castle, and more. In addition, a few days ago, LEGO added yet another Anniversary set to the list, the #43230 LEGO Disney Walt Disney Tribute Camera.

This set didn’t get any special announcement, but it is already listed at the Online LEGO Shop and is available for pre-order. And because it’s such an interesting set, I thought it was worth discussing it. The official set description states the following.

Showcase your passion for all things Disney with this eye-catching #43230 LEGO Disney Walt Disney Tribute Camera set for adults. This detailed collectible set features a vintage-style movie ‘camera’ with a hinged back panel with a surprise, a filmstrip showing stills from 20 historic Disney movies, a director’s clapperboard with space for the three included minifigures and two animal figures, and a multi-plane camera with three printed screens showing how Disney’s The Old Mill short was made.

The set also has a turning crank, sliding matte box, and lenses that can be rotated on the old-fashioned movie camera, plus a movable lower stick on the clapperboard. This premium LEGO Disney set, created to help celebrate Disney’s 100th anniversary, includes Disney’s Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse, plus Bambi and Dumbo animal figures, as well as a LEGO Disney minifigure of Walt Disney, and can make a unique and distinctive collectible gift for display.

This memorabilia-filled set has 811 pieces that create several distinct items, including an old-fashioned movie camera and a director’s clapperboard with multi-plane camera. The movie camera measures over 14.5 in. (37 cm) high, 8.5 in (21 cm) wide, and 7 in. (19 cm) deep, making it, along with the other items, a display piece to reflect your passion.

I feel that amongst all the LEGO Disney 100th Anniversary sets this one really stands out as an adult-oriented display piece. It has such unique and sophisticated details, including the subdued (almost black-and-white) color scheme, the camera design and features, and that amazing film strip! The minifigs also look excellent, and Bambi and Dumbo are super cute! All characters are exclusive to this set.

The #43230 LEGO Disney Walt Disney Tribute Camera is going to be available starting September 1st, for the price of $99.99. And you can already pre-order it at the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    The filmstrip is so Good! I would love to get that piece for my movie theater.

    I wonder what they are using for the film strip. If it is the same material as they use for tents, flags, etc. Good looking set.

    I like this one a lot. Not too big, not too expensive, but great detail. Like others, I love the film strip!

    Pretty cool, although it’s too big and expensive for my tastes. As others have noted, it was mainly Ub Iwerks that was the artist in the early stages, though. (I think Iwerks was the artist and main animator, Walt Disney the creative producer, and the brother Roy Disney the financial bookkeeper and economical fundraiser, if I remember things correctly…)

    Otherwise, I might possibly try to snag certain parts of this separately, although I have a hunch stuff like the Walt Disney minifig and the Dumbo and Bambi parts would be rather expensive on the secondary market…
