The Hogwarts castle set? nice, great entry point to a world of bricks!

I just can't believe I had no clue about this one...already spent $$$ on all the sets they just released, and about to drop more on a box of minifigures (searching target daily lol), but this is a must have for our family

Right there with you. HP is our favorite. Hadn't bought much more than the holiday sets for a while, but with the HP sets and minifigs, Hogwarts Castle, and Voltron, I'll be running out of storage space.

I've wondered for while why they hadn't done a full Hogwarts set and just assumed it was because it would be excessively large (and $$$$$), so I'm kinda glad it's a bit scaled down. The dimensions on the site say it's 22" tall, 27" wide and 16" deep. So it's still a pretty good size.

For comparison, the disney castle specs are:
The Disney Castle measures over 29” (74cm) high, 18.8” (48cm) wide and 12” (31cm) deep.

I have the disney castle perched atop my arcade cabinet now, but this new Hogwarts will for sure take its place...just gotta find a new spot for the disney castle now lol

Saw the HP minifigures are on lego.com in prep for release in August, so I tried calling and ordering a box, but no luck.

I did find out that the big Hogwarts Castle set will be early access for VIP people though!

back to checking target daily for the minifigs now...

One of the walmarts in town here shows 120 in stock (thx to brickseek), but went during lunch...nothing. blarg

checked target too, but they are better about following street date stuff and sure enough, nothing there either (even tho brickseek shows in stock too)

time to check daily during lunch and after work I guess now lol
