LEGO’s newest Harry Potter set features a Hogwarts castle made of 6,000 pieces


Super fans of Harry Potter might be happy to know that a detailed Hogwarts castle set will soon be out. It’ll only cost a pretty penny to buy the magical set.

Harry Potter and LEGO aficionados should get excited about the latest offer coming from the two teams. There have been LEGO Harry Potter sets before, but nothing quite like what’s coming next.

If you’ve got a lot of patience on your hands, you might want to check out LEGO’s newest Hogwarts Castle set, which is comprised of roughly 6,000 pieces. That makes it the biggest LEGO Harry Potter set made to date, according to Entertainment Weekly. That being said, this is the kind of LEGO build that certainly isn’t for children. The recommendation for this project is for people who are at least 16 years old.

This set doesn’t just include the pieces to build the iconic castle. There’s so much more inside. The LEGO website describes just how much to expect from this impressive set:

"This highly detailed LEGO Harry Potter collectible has over 6,000 pieces and offers a rewarding build experience. It comes packed with highlights from the Harry Potter series, where you will discover towers, turrets, chambers, classrooms, creatures, the Whomping Willow™ and Hagrid´s hut, plus many more iconic features. And with 4 minifigures, 27 microfigures featuring students, professors and statues, plus 5 Dementors, this advanced building set makes the perfect Harry Potter gift."

The four minifigures that’ll come with the set include the Hogwarts house founders: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin, and Rowena Ravenclaw. The other microfigures include our favorite trio of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, as well as others like Bellatrix Lestrange, Filch, and Remus Lupin.

If you want to get into the finer details of the castle, you’ll be excited to know that there are a lot of smaller touches that you can build. For instance, there are rooms like the Great hall with “buildable ‘stained glass windows’, house banners, benches, tables, flaming torches and moving staircases.” Or, you could venture to other places like the Chamber of secrets, the Gryffindor common room, and Professor Umbridge’s formidable pink office.

If you get started on the day it’s released, you might be done just in time for Fantastic Beasts 2 to come out in theaters Nov. 16.
