Today, I bring you a project dear to my heart. Casey Jr from Disney's Dumbo!
Casey Jr as depicted here is a 2-4-0 steam locomotive, depicted as such in the 1941 animated classic. The brave little locomotive pulls his train consisting of a passenger car for the clowns, Dumbo and Mrs. Jumbo's elephant car, and the ringmaster's caboose.
Set includes Dumbo, Mrs. Jumbo, minifigures of the ringmaster, two silly clowns, brick-built Dumbo and Mrs. Jumbo figures, and a Timothy Q. Mouse minifigure, depicted here by my friend Artist Bridget Whiting. https://ideas.lego.com/profile/Artist%20Bridget%20Whiting/entries#/?query=&...
Dumbo really soars with help from two transparent LEGO rods and can be flown around by attaching him alongside the elephant car, or by hand. Casey Jr. is powered by LEGO Powered Up and features animated side rods and valve gear. Set can be used with a smartphone running Android or iOS, or 88010 Remote Control.
I built this set because I was born disabled, and grew up watching Disney movies, reading, or building with LEGO bricks, instead of running around with other kids. I have always loved trains, and Disney movies and dream of someday designing a LEGO set to bring joy and excitement to others, and maybe even inspire other disabled people to follow their dreams and never give up. All aboard, let's go!
