Lego has just revealed another masterpiece, the new Hogwarts Castle, a Harry Potter set with exactly six thousands and twenty pieces (!!) that includes four mini-figures (Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw) and a huge list of twenty seven micro-figures that presents plenty of characters as you can see in the official press release.
In terms of the castle, the pictures talk by themselves, it’s absolutely a must, a highly detailed construction with lots of small details and among so many others, an enormous tower that according to Lego is 58 centimeters high.
Inside, there are lots of different rooms and sections completely adapted to the microscale figures and the colors scheme that mixes grey with light brown is absolutely beautiful. Each one of the sections has plenty of columns and the tallest tower shows five levels.
The set should be available on general retail in August with prices around the four hundred bucks, perhaps a bit more, which seems interesting according to the piece count. Have a look at the detailed press release and pictures!
