71408 Peach’s Castle is available to purchase now along with the rest of the latest LEGO Super Mario wave. However, it’s not the first depiction of the castle in the theme. A much smaller version of the castle was featured in 71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block.
While that version was much too small for Super Mario figures to fit inside, it still included a few recognisable details from the game such as the Warp Paintings to the various levels. These paintings were for Bob-omb Battlefield, Cool Cool Mountain and Lethal Lava Land.
The artwork for Bob-omb Battlefield also features in 71408 Peach’s Castle, offering a larger version of the design than what was available on the one-stud tile. The sun design also features inside the main doors of the castle, much like the smaller build in 71395 Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block.
