We all love Disney's villains, sometimes more than the heroes themselves. From the chauvinistic hunter Gaston to the manipulative Sea Witch Ursula, the animated classics that we all grew up watching just wouldn't be as memorable without them. Let's just say there's a reason fans are clamoring for Disney to build a park dedicated to these characters.
While it might be some while before we get a theme park, we can at least celebrate their wickedness with a brand new LEGO set. Available today, if you can find it in stock, LEGO's Villain Icons set is a love-letter to some of the House of Mouse's most iconic baddies.
LEGO Villain Icons pricing, availability and details
The LEGO Villain Icons set retails for $129.99, which is rather affordable when you take into consideration that it's not only a Disney collaboration but also a potential collectible. The price is especially worth it when you see how detailed this thing is.
The LEGO Villain Icons set celebrates decades of Disney animation from the Golden Age to the Silver Age, and pays homage to some of our favorite classic Disney Villains. The 1,540-piece set includes four mini-figures and numerous other items that reference the following animated films: Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan and Maleficent. When it's all put together, you'll have an amazing collectible set to proudly display and inspire nostalgia.
As a child of the '90s, the inclusion of VHS cases along with The Little Mermaid VHS tape -- which actually features scenes on film from the original animated movie -- is especially moving. It brings me right back to childhood.
So when can you get your hands on this set and start building? Well, it's technically available today, although it's currently back ordered on the official LEGO website. However, you may be able to find it at your local LEGO store or another participating retailer. If you do order it from the LEGO website, it says it will ship in 60 days.
