As a child, my original inspiration for trying to build the 6080 King’s Castle came from the LEGO catalogs of the time, you know the ones available at toy stores that kids pick up for free and then pester their parents with. Pestering aside, even to this day I still enjoy picking up the latest catalog with my son and checking out what’s new in the world of LEGO.

For reliving such memories, Worldbricks seems to have a nice LEGO catalog database. See the 1984-1986 catalogs for the 6080 King’s Castle.
