LEGO Harry Potter : Hogwarts Castle Review
A couple of weeks ago i was lucky enough to purchase the LEGO Hogwarts Castle.
It is a highly detailed new addition to the LEGO Harry Potter collection and overall a great set!
So lets start off with the figures.
In this set you get 11 figures in all.
Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore, Argus Filch, Two Dementors, Severus Snape, Filius Flitwick, Professor Mcgonagall, And Lord Voldemort!
All the figures were highly detailed and great quality (as usual) And even Filch's cat had a FACE!
The whole set was massive in size and was highly detailed!
There were four different parts of the castle with different features inside.
The first side of the caste includes Albus Dumbledores office including the new sorting hat and the sword of Godric Gryffindor. Just below Dumbledores office is a set of stairs and a award won by James Potter.
In the next section at the very top is the owlery. Its pretty small and includes three owls.
Just under that is the Gryffindor common room.
Its pretty simple.... it just includes two chairs,a table and a fire place.
Sirius Blacks face pops out of the fire place like it did in Order of the Phoenix (although the sets are based of the Half Blood Prince)
Under that is the Slytherin common room. Same thing as the Gryffindor common room execept it comes with two snakes.
The next section I was really happy with as it came with a vanishing cabinet.
I was really impressed with the scaling of it and the design.
Im leaving the best till last:
THE GREAT HALL!
It really lives up to its name!
The hall is massive in size and includes so many elements it would take me a whole hour to write them all down!
I also really liked the two giant banners on the roof!
Although they were stickers you could hardly notice.
All and all I'd give this set a 8 out of 10!
I definetly reccomend this set to any LEGO collector!
