A couple of days ago the long rumored #71040 LEGO Disney Castle set has been revealed in its full glory. Unfortunately LEGO forgot to send out an official press-release and designer-video, but instead they quietly uploaded the description and pictures under the LEGO Disney Princess section of the Online LEGO Shop. But I guess this set speaks for itself, so no need for a ceremonious introduction. 🙂
Here is the official description: Welcome to the magical Disney Castle! Cross the stone bridge and enter the arched doorway to a place where dreams come true. This delightful LEGO replica of the Walt Disney World Resort Cinderella Castle is full of authentic details for you to explore. Step into the grand main hall with its mosaic-tiled floor, suits of armor, wall-mounted shields, grandfather clock, ornate chandelier and golden lamp, then venture through a myriad of beautifully detailed rooms featuring familiar decorative details. Create your own Disney adventures with the 5 included minifigures: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Tinker Bell, or add characters from your own collection for endless play scenarios. From its intricate facade, ornate balconies and flag-adorned towers, to the soaring golden-spired main tower complete with fireworks function, this amazing model features unsurpassed detail and magical surprises that will set your imagination free! 4080 pieces.

As you can see, the LEGO Disney Castle is enormous in size, and includes a great amount of detail. It’s a bit surprising that Cinderella and her Prince Charming were not included, but I have heard rumors that there may be a second series of LEGO Disney Minifigures, and hopefully they will be added. The #71040 LEGO Disney Castle will be available for sale directly through LEGO beginning September 1st, with early access to LEGO VIP members on August 17th. Prices are as follows: US $349.99 – CA $399.99 – DE 349.99€ – UK £289.99 – DK 2999.00 DKK (Euro pricing varies by country).
