LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall Building Set
Harry Potter fans and LEGO enthusiasts will want to get their hands on the LEGO Hogwarts Great Hall Building Kit. It’s not the whole castle, just a part of it, but with 878 pieces it is quite a large set, and will appeal to older kids attracted to the more advanced assembly.
There is a lot of detail in this set. It can be played on four levels and provides plenty of scope for kids to recreate their favorite scenes from the movie series. There are not as many pieces in this set as you might expect, but this is because the tower section is made with fewer but larger curved pieces.
The Great Hall can be connected to the Whomping Willow set if you have one or are considering getting one, and of course it’s compatible with all other Lego building toys.
It includes the tower with the spiral staircase that moves, a treasure room you can build, and a potion room.
Accessories include the sorting hat - great for re-enacting the Sorting Ceremony - magic wands, and the magical creatures Hedwig (Harry’s owl) and Scabbers. You can also build the creatures Basilisk and Fawkes.
There is such a mass of fine detail. The Magical Mirror of Erised at top of the tower has three alternative mirror images to use. The Hall has leaded windows, house banners with all the different variations as well. You can only see two banners at a time but they are reversible. Benches, candles, goblets, broomstick, a chest filled with gems - these are just a few.
It has an impressive line-up of new minifigures. Ten of them. In addition to Harry Potter there’s Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Draco Malfoy, Susan Bones, Professor McGonagall, Professor Quirrel that has a dual Lord Voldemort face and Nearly Headless Nick.
The assembled building is double-sided (see box art below) so offers plenty of gameplay scenarios to bring the characters alive.
