One of the most talked about LEGO sets this year is definitely the #71040 LEGO Disney Castle. With over four thousand pieces, and a height of almost 30 inches, it is one of the largest and tallest LEGO sets ever released. The thing is massive. And beautiful. We have discussed the set previously (see links at the end of this post), but it is hard to describe something so big and detailed just with words. 🙂
If you live near a LEGO store, I do recommend to go and see the LEGO Disney Castle in person, to really comprehend its size and beauty. Ass a next best thing, you can watch the detailed video-review that JANGBRiCKS posted, and I have included below. It is almost half an hour long, so settle in, and enjoy the tour of the magical LEGO Disney Castle!
