Just a reminder that the #71040 LEGO Disney Castle is now available for LEGO VIP members (regular release will be on September 1st). This is one of the most anticipated sets of the year, and I’m sure it will be very much in demand leading up to the year-end holidays. We have talked about the set before in detail (see links at the end of this post), so I will only repeat the basic description, along with the designer video, for your convenience. 🙂
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! Includes 5 minifigures: Mickey Mouse with a tuxedo, Minnie Mouse with red dress, Donald Duck with classic outfit, Daisy Duck with pink skirt, lavender colored shoes and a bow, and Tinker Bell with wig element, skirt, wings and a magic wand. 4080 pieces. The Disney Castle measures over 29” (74cm) high, 17” (44cm) wide and 12” (31cm) deep. Price: $349.99 – BUY HERE
And here is the designer-video with Marcus Bessa showing some of the many highlights of the sets, as well as interesting details about the design process. Marcus looks small next to it! 😀
As you can see, the LEGO Disney Castle is enormous, and includes a great amount of detail referencing classic Disney movies. It is definitely the ultimate set for LEGO Disney fans, and it also provides a huge number of useful parts for LEGO Castle builders in general. If you are planning to purchase it for Christmas, I do recommend that you get it as soon as possible. I expect it to become difficult to find, like the #41062 LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Ice Palace was during the last Christmas season. 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). You can find the set under the LEGO Exclusives section of the Online LEGO Shop.
