    Ah, leaked, and now Lego, as with every other major release, has to play the game of fitting things back into Pandora's box.  Remove if necessary mods.

    Btw Lego, get your releasing act together.  Is a 5 year old handling security?

    Word.  Sorry.  Well, kinda, not really though.  I wonder if it was Lego's intention for people to get excited about something, wanting to share it, then getting poo'd upon because their marketing department doesn't have their shit together.

    ^^ @TheLoneTensor - whether or not the marketing department has their act together is not really relevant if the long-standing policy on this site is to restrict photos and links to unreleased sets.

    I agree with this site having a policy,  sticking to it and acting on it accordingly.   However, I could care less about protecting Lego and their unreleased photos, and I'd have no problem sharing photos....I just wouldn't do it here because of the policy.
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    ^ @SumoLego - yes, it is relevant if their department can't keep a lid on things.  For the record, as @ToddMyers stated, I found it quite easily, in fact so easily and widespread that it seemed to me that it indeed was released.

    As Todd also stated /whatever.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,261
    Except that is wasn't/hasn't been released.  Nonetheless, I agree it's silly to belabor the point.

    ^^It's not the first time; they also appeared as fireworks with #70751 - Temple Of Airjitzu, it shouldn't be that exciting.

    ^ sure, but this is where lego stud shooters were born to be , beside the Disney castle, basking it in colours

    The image has already been removed twice on different threads as it is considered an unofficial leak... 
    It can be frustrating for us fans as these look like official publicity shots (to me anyway) but it's Lego's rules and we have to play by them I suppose.

    I'll have to look for the stud shooters on the real thing when we go to Disney next time. This infatuation with stud shooters/flick fires just reached a whole new level with this castle.  Maybe they don't want the images out there so the press release can explain what the stud shooters are for.

    OK, Did not see watermarks which is what I thought cause pictures to be removed. It's all over Twitter and WDWNT.com is a pretty well know site, has Lego asked them to remove?

    They don't like any pictures going about until they announce it.

    Love this site, but Lego may as well buy it, if they have to control everything, it's a fan site!!. At least the reviews given here for the most part still seem to be personal opinion. TLG should do a better job controlling leaks, unless they are being done on purpose.

    I get that you didn't realise it was leaked but several times lately Huw has pointed out that LEGO are being stricter on what's considered a leak and for obvious reasons he wants to stay on the right side of LEGO. The article you linked even said that the set hadn't been officially announced.

    Our official policy is here http://brickset.com/about/noveltypolicy

    It does not cover the forum specifically but I will add a section when I return from vacation. 

    I need to think about it more but I suspect it will state that it's not acceptable to post images suspected of being leaks but posting links to the source may be OK since we are not actually propagating the leak and may actually benefit lego by citing the source should it wish to have it removed.

    The castle looks fantastic. Now I have no idea what to add to Winter train in October for my Double VIP order. This castle or Batcave? No way I could afford both :(
  • AdeelZubairAdeelZubair London, UKMember Posts: 2,664
    I heard the press release is Monday and it contains 4080 pieces, can any mods confirm this?
  • monstblitzmonstblitz Alexandria, VAMember Posts: 622
    Couldn't tell for sure but looks like this set will have classic mini figures instead of the dreaded mini dolls.  Finally a great set to get my daughter that will have real minifigs!
  • ryjayryjay Member Posts: 1,001
    ^ lol, sure....you're gettin' it for your daughter....that's the story we'll stick to, for your daughter, yep  :)

    Well, having forum goers spreading their photos isn't quite helping matters.

    Paul Lee has mentioned a ton of points on Facebook why we shouldn't be sharing leaked images as it could impact the company and their relationships with IP's which will be reflected in the products. Maybe @Huw could also touch upon these points if he wishes to on the page regarding leaks.

    only 4000 pieces? expected over 5000, maybe 6000 with all those easter eggs details.

    also I don't really get why sharing pictures is a such a big deal, but whatever, must be some weird stuff about capitalism...

    Why is TLG worried more about leaked images than all the couterfeit and knock-off Lego sets being produced? When is the Lepin Cinderella's Castle being released?

    There are a number of large parts in this set too, the front wall uses panels this might be why it is 'only' 4000 pieces.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,261
    ^ I think Lepin will wait until the set is retired.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,492
    if I'm not mistaken it was close to 60 studs large and 75 bricks high, which is noticeably larger than big ben I think?

    Now isn't that just the most exciting set to be released this year? (OK the porche was good and I liked brickbank but it needs a top floor adding but the batcave and assault on hoth were um well tedious and the park set is imo overpriced). I don't normally like anything disney/friends/castle related and so had just skimmed over the title when they were announced but clicked on this and wow! I have to say this looks fantastic. Salivating at the thought of 4000 very useful pieces and wondering what I can make with them. Proper spine tingling, itchy fingers at the thought of this one. I was beginning to think my lego obsession had run its course for a bit as there wasn't much left I desperately wanted to buy but I can see us eating beans on toast til release date for this one!

    @LuLego Isn't the largest set the Taj Mahal with 5,900 pieces

    The set just doesn't look like it has 4,000 pieces though. Like maybe 3,000+? I don't know, it's hard to tell nowadays with all the small detail pieces that are in sets like this...
  • kiki180703kiki180703 Montreal, CanadaMember Posts: 1,049
    @bobabricks I think it has 4080 pieces.

    This castle is fabulous.  The color choices depart from the original in a good way and thank goodness, no pink!  Maybe a few of these can be combined and altered to make a decent Minas Tirith for middle earth.

    Why would it be frustrating? Just go to other forums where they didn't remove the image, problem solved! Google is your best friend :)

    I understand Brickset had a longstanding relationship with TLG and would, given any chance, do their best effort to side with them. Instead of making it difficult for Brickset, can just visit other forums and discuss about the leaked images/sets there.

  • RecceRecce Tiny Little Red DotMember Posts: 919
    Back on topic, apparently the back is quite empty, so need at least 2 sets to make it into a complete 8000pcs castle.

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 13,261
    One of my favorite movies is Three Men and a Baby, but in this case, it would be Two Mice, Two Ducks and a Fairy.

    Can't wait for the official release of official photos!

    For some reason, I thought it was going to be more colorful. I'm glad it's not. I'm now interested in this because it reminds me of Drangleic Castle.

    Along with a brand new Tinkerbell with wand and new hair 
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,115
    Although the overall build looks good to me, I'm not a fan of the number of panels for the walls and curved wedges used for the towers. This is probably the side I would display, rather than the intricate details on the reverse side.
