The legendary Money Bin, Duckburg's most famous building it's been attacked: while its legitimate owner flew to Denmark for a business trip, his arch rival Flintheart Glomgold sided with the nasty Beagle Boys and managed to brake into this (once) impenetrable fortress. 
Will they be able to escape with the treasure of the richest duck in the world without falling into its many traps?

Let's have a look to this 2950 pieces model in which I condensed all the most iconic details that appear in DuckTales and the comics.

Extremely modular thank to its "drawer design"
I inserted a lot of easter eggs into this model, but what's the point if they are unnoticed? That's why every floor (roof included) can easily be removed to appreciate every single detail or play with it. Simply pull it towards you, just like a drawer.

Tons of playability.
With a secret passage, a trapdoor, shooting cannons, armored doors, a bath tub full of coins and much more, this model ensures hours and hours of fun for both kids and grown ups

It's a piggy bank!
The back of the roof has an apposite slot to insert coins, that will go straigt into the giant money pool. Remove the back wall to admire it through the big transparent panels. Empty it opening the back wall: it's a giant door.

Re-enact DuckTales adventures!
This is the perfect set to display your ducks from Disney Minifigures series 1 and 2. With Flintheart Glomgold and the Beagle Boys they'll now have some enemies to watch their back from.

Plenty of accurate details.
The number one dime, the giant money pool, the coins bath-tub, the canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills, the trapdoor... all the most iconic details (any many more) are included in this model.

Customizable!
Change the order of pieces of the front sign into your favorite currency... or your initial.

Good for kids!
On top of being a thematic that kids love, this set makes use of simple but efficient building techniques. You don't need to be an expert to build it, just very patient. Also, most of the bricks used are very big so that can't be swallowed accidentally.

Two big sets in one.
Once removed, the 3 floors and the vault can all be stacked on top of each other so that you can admire all the details at 360 degrees.
Front wall, side walls and roof can instead be joint to reproduce the exterior, so it's like having two giant sets in one.

Unique printed elements.
Loyal to its motto "Take an idea, make it your own", Glomgold has already refurbished the money bin with some custom elements: we have the Glomgold Industries logo, Glomgold's painting, a cute photo of him as a kid and a frame with his fake certificate of Scottishness.



The 1x1 plates showed in the giant money pool pictures are clearly for presentation purpose only. It would take around 4000 of them to completely fill the pool, exceeding the 3000 parts limit of Lego Ideas big time.
