Those looking to buy LEGO 71040 The Disney Castle this year have had to be patient, as the set spent many months out of stock before recently returning to LEGO.com. It’s now back to out of stock status, with its popularity perhaps helped by recent celebrity attention.
In the meantime, fans can consider the new 43179 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Buildable Characters instead, which builds large scale models of Disney’s most well-known characters.
The icon of the brand and centre of the largest theme park is represented in 71040 The Disney Castle, making it a genuine must-have. It uses 4,080 pieces and measures 74cm tall. It also includes Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Tinker Bell – Peter Pan’s fairy friend is exclusive to the set.
