It feels just like last year when you could get a Disney Castle LEGO Set with over 4000 pieces and came with 7 minifigures. Wait, it was, and with classic iconic characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Daisy, along with the signature Tinker Bell, and a random statue. Back at the time the set was released (September 2016), this was the first time we would see Tinker Bell in true minifigure form. And it has taken another 7 years before she would appear as a minifigure once more!
But we are not going to talk about that set much today (initially at least)
Instead, we are going to talk about a brand New Disney Castle, set to form the centerpiece of the 100 years of Disney Celebrations, in LEGO form. The minifigure selection Highlights Disney Princesses from across the years, including Snow White (her first time in minfigure form)and Prince Florian; Cinderella and Prince Charming; Princess Tiana and Prince Nareen; Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder. With 4837 pieces, the set is due for release on July 1 (VIPs) and July 4 (every one else). It is priced at £344.99/ €399.99/$399.99/8999.9 TRY/169990.0 HUF/3299.0 CNY/519.99 CAD/
Now, as I implied earlier, the previous Castle was retired just 6 months ago. Does this set offer enough reasons to make chasing it down worthwhile, despite the increased price tag? Let’s take a closer look at the set, and perhaps compare what we know of the two. (And read the press copy along the way.)Continue reading
