Bargain with Ursula

Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' was originally released in 1989 and, over the years, has become one of Disney's most successful films. The award-winning music has stood the test of time and become some of the most recognizable Disney music today. 'The Little Mermaid' has it's own show at Disneyland and now has it's own section of the new Fantasyland. 'The Little Mermaid' and its sequel and prequel were recently re-released on bluray and DVD. Though the tale is timeless, the time has never been better for scenes from 'The Little Mermaid' to make it into brick form.

Disney has long had a presence in Lego products - from Duplo sets of Pooh, Mickey, and Princess to lines based on other movies like 'Pirates of the Caribbean,' 'Prince of Persia,' and 'Cars.' However, as a member of the "Disney Generation," I have always longed to see Lego sets based on some of the classic Disney animated features. "The Little Mermaid" would be a key movie to include in a line of sets based on classic Disney films! While Disney has recently released their 'Princess' mini-doll line in cooperation with LEGO, I still think a line based on classic films in the traditional LEGO form would be wonderful.

"Bargain with Ursula" is a smaller set depicting Ursula's home as Ariel saw it when she came to ask about the possibility of her becoming human in order to win the heart of Prince Eric. It is comprised of four main sections.

- Moveable for increased playability
- Dangling pink tendrils suggest Usrula's 'curtained' doorway in the film
- Three cursed merpeople 'polyps' guard the entrance

- Moveable for increased playability
- Bubbling with green goo to extract Ariel's voice

- Moveable for increased playability
- Contains plenty of jars, potions, and ingredients for playability

- Moveable for increased playability
- Removable stool for Ursula to sit on
- Lipstick and other makeup tools to 'beautify' Ursula included

*I am working on rendering a photo of the updated set as seen in the cover picture to place here and give a better look at the overall set. Until that is completed, however, the old set photo gives you an idea of what the first three sections look like, as well as provides some perspective on the updates made to the set.

- Ursula
- Ariel

- Merpeople Polyps (x3)
- Flotsam
- Jetsam
