This Hogwarts castle is awesome! The building experience was challenging at times, but so much fun. The details and design are fantastic and if you have a place to put this, love legos and Harry Potter, this is definitely a must have. Very impressive product, worth every penny.
Bought this kit for myself after seeing a fully built Hogwarts Castle on display. How glad I am that I decided to purchase it. The Castle is very detailed with lots of rooms containing numerous small items that will be familiar to all “Potter” fans, young and old alike. I took my time with the build and completed it in about a six week period, the estimate of 30 hours build time is just that, an estimate, why would you rush something this good. I would recommend this kit to anyone with an interest in Harry Potter or just someone who enjoys building a detailed model, you just need a large space to display this model to it’s full potential.
I decided on a whim that I wanted to build something Lego, so I purchased this castle! It was awesome. It took me a few hours each day for a week to complete; then I ordered a lighting kit for it, wired it, and then my brother-in-law made me a rotating stand so each side could be seen! I would definitely recommend this build!
Ok, first off this set is incredible. Seriously, the detail is exquisite. I love how they somehow captured all 7 books in one set. It’s phenomenal. My only complaint is the big tower. It’s so dang complicated. It doesn’t have enough contact points for the different parts. It just falls apart as I’m trying to build it. I’ve built this twice now and it takes me 3-4 hours alone to do the large tower. I mean don’t get me wrong, the design is probably the best you can do with LEGO but sheesh, I about lose it every time I put it together. But in the end it’s totally worth it because of how dang sweet it looks!
My 9-year-old daughter built this LEGO set with very minimal help from me (less than 30 minutes) over winter break. She wants everyone to know that "this set is amazing." Her previous building experience was the friendship sets as well as a few of the other Harry Potter LEGO sets.
First of all I would like to thank you lego team for creating this beauty. It’s totally epic. I wouldn’t mind micro scale as long as the design and aesthetics is there. Being micro scale didn’t put me off on owning the priciest lego purchase I’ve ever made...so far. Have to save up for months. The play feature is limited for kids under 10 because of the scale. Handling the micro figure is a bit of a work too. But here come the kids where they come handy. It took us that many days (3 hours/day approximately) to complete it. They love building it specially the stained window...that’s so cool. This Christmas my kids decided to add a Christmas spirit by building lego set 40338 The Christmas tree and placed it in the foreground of the castle. It looks wonderful. Also it looks like Santa dropped off some presents too to the nice kids of Hogwarts school. Sorry Malfoy.
