    Fair point. Guess it gives the mods something to do ;-)

    Just been looking at the contraband pics again now I'm at my PC. Still love it :-) 
    One thing I noticed -  in the image of Mickey in the Sorcerer's Apprentice room, does there seem to be a shadow at the top of his leg, hinting at a cloth piece for the tails of his coat? That would be cool. 
    Yep. Really makes the figure look better!

    With 4080 pieces what do you guys think the price will be?

    It has 600 pieces less than #75827 - Ghostbusters, Firehouse Headquarters which is also a licenced set. My guess is between £149.99 and £299.99, although I hope it's equal or less than the Firehouse Headquarters' price of £274.99.

    It's $349.99

    74cm high - Tower of Orthanc is 73cm high for a quick comparison.

    It's taller than Orthanc? Jesus, and even that's huge.

    I'm surprised there is not a large room with tables for breakfast with the princesses and every time you put a mini figure in that room, you have to send Disney $60. 

    Anyway, this looks very nice. My wife is actually excited about getting a Lego set now. I just hope there aren't too many stickers.

    Ouch for the UK price, might have to leave this one on the shelf for the forseeable.  Damn Brexit.

    The height is roughly the same, but it's twice that wide and twice as deep. Stunning.

    Note also it is not called Cinderella's Castle, so the other incorrectly named thread should probably be closed or renamed.

    Now that the full photos are on Brickset, I think I'm moving this into the 'not likely' category.  I can live without the minifigures (thanks to the CMFs) and Tinkbell should have bigger eyes - the normal look face really doesn't work for me.  Even Alice is a better look.
    The actual build looks pretty good but for the price I'd take two modulars every day of the week.  There are however some elements which will be getting snapped up if they ever make it on to B&P.  The printed Unikitty tails are amazing and needed for so much minifigure scale furniture.  The little printed 1x1 round tiles near the archery board (I'm not sure what they are meant to be) are perfect little cut off branches for trees.  Not sure if either are new but hey, I just noticed them.

    The circles are cookies that I think are in the Disney Princess Merida set.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,533
    ^ They look new.  Definitely not the jammy dodger tile or the tree knot tile that have been in this year's Friends and Elves sets already. 
  • William_TownsleyWilliam_Townsley Perth, Scotland Member Posts: 880
    Mmmm Jammy Dodgers 
  • CM4SCM4S United StatesMember Posts: 1,304
    Oops, I was wrong. I'm still pretty sure it's a Brave reference. 


  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,799
    I assumed the archery was a Robin Hood reference. But that was just on the assumption that all the other rooms were references to 'classic Disney'. Not sure what the Donald Duck bedroom is from though. 
  • lego187lego187 United StatesMember Posts: 16
    Pretty sure the bedroom is the Disney Suite in the real castle
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,436
    Expensive, but I can see why the price point. It is pretty huge and Im guessing many building castles may also buy it for a good foundation as well. Though it appears the 'brick work' on the castle walls are stickers.
  • devilheaddevilhead Member Posts: 280

    Is that bedroom not Sleeping Beauty?

    Correct... it is just Cinderella Castle... no apostrophe or s. (At Disney World, anyway)

    Looks like TLG will be releasing Disney Series 2 CMFs in the near future based on the features in the new Cinderella Castle. Only a few of the CMFs in Disney Series 1 seem to go with the new castle (Mickey, Mini, Donald, Daisy, Maleficent). I am expecting Snow White and the evil Queen, Sleeping Beauty (with awake and sleeping sides of her face) and the Prince, the Beauty and the Beast, and the fox version of Robin Hood and Maid Marian, Arthur and Merlin, Jasmine, so forth. I think the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter will also be part of the upcoming Disney Series 2.

    The set has a different name, no mention of Cinderella.

    Is it the Disney Castle or the Cinderella Caste?

    I officially call this set by it's rightful acronym DC!
  • tallblocktootallblocktoo CanadaMember Posts: 497
    With all these large sets coming out this year I wonder when or if we will ever see Lego produce a set over 6000 pieces to surpass Taj Mahal as the largest set.

    Good job LEGO. Now do Beast's menacing castle.

    I'll wait for double points on this one, unless they're retiring it in one month. 

    Oops. Wrong thread.

    It's funny, cause here you are correcting ridiculous minutiae, yet in the very same breath you incorrectly call it Disney World.

    Officially it's Walt Disney World.  Of course, you'd get a really dumb stare from someone if you corrected them of that, same as if you corrected them on calling it Cinderella's Castle.

    I couldn't care less.  Or I could care less?  I can't bloody remember.

    (And please don't refer to it as Walt Disney World Resort.  That would be incorrect.)

    Thank you for finding my poorly executed and rather unfunny joke funny, though I think you didn't actually get it as you point out something that was intentional as a mistake and go on to make a very similar point to what was intended.  Like I said, it was poorly executed.  No harm, no foul.

    Indeed, it is important to get the name right, before people start comparing CC with FB. (Cinderella's Castle and Frodo's Burrow).
