Note (July 11 at 6:31 a.m.): Following what turned out to be a leak over the weekend, LEGO has officially announced its massive Cinderella Castle set, complete with photos, video and details.
LEGO has unveiled its epic 4,080-piece Cinderella Castle set, based of course on the iconic flagship attraction of Disney's Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland theme parks.
Few details have been released, but as you can see, it's impressive, with an open back providing access to an interior that's every bit as awe-inspiring as the facade.
The Brothers Brick notes the set comes with minifgures of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Tinker Bell, some of which differ in design from the first wave of Disney minifigs that debuted in May.
You likely know what's coming next: the price. Cinderella Castle is set to retail for $349.99, which many fans will undoubtedly think is a bargain. It will be available beginning Sept. 1.
Updated (July 11 at 6:31 a.m.): According to the official announcement (see the video below), the set measures 27 inches high, 17 inches wide and 24 inches deep, and comes with five 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.
