Build a LEGO version of Cinderella's castle for $350
Posted July 14, 2016
DISNEYLAND — If a dream is a wish your heart makes, then a lot of Disney enthusiasts’ dreams are about to come true thanks to LEGO.
The Danish brick tycoon is releasing a ridiculously intricate version of Cinderella’s castle as seen on screen and at Disney parks around the world.
According to LEGO, the set will include 4,080 pieces that you hopefully won’t lose or step on. The item description from LEGO lists the castle features, saying it includes, “a detailed façade with a stone bridge, clock, wide-arched entrance, ornate balconies, spired towers, plus a four-story main building and a five-story, golden-spired main tower, both containing rooms with assorted Disney-inspired features and elements.”
The “elements” referred to in the description are all manner of Disney classic Easter eggs, including Mickey’s wizard hat and mop buckets from “Fantasia,” the poison apple from “Snow White,” Aurora’s spinning wheel from “Sleeping Beauty,” the tale-tell red rose feature in “Beauty and the Beast,” the “Robin Hood” archery target, Genie’s lamp from “Aladdin” and Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper, just to name a few.
The LEGO set also comes with a set of five Disney minifigures: a tuxedoed Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Donald and Daisy Duck and — because the castle wouldn’t be complete without her — Tinkerbell.
LEGO released a Disney Minifigure collection in May, a set of 18 characters that includes the likes of Ursula, Mr. Incredible, Buzz Lightyear, Hook and Ariel.
The completed castle will stand at 29” high, 17” wide and 12” deep with room to host any number of attending Disney Minifigures to watch the fireworks display. Oh yes, there are two “stud shooters” on the five-story castle that function as a firework simulator.
Those excited to purchase this mammoth LEGO set will have to do some waiting and saving. LEGO will release The Disney Castle on Sept. 1 for a retail price of $349.99.
