There’s a new toy coming soon for all you Potterheads, and it’s perfect for anyone who loves a good challenge. Lego is releasing a 6,020-piece Hogwarts Castle model that is insanely detailed.
This new Lego set is the stuff Wizarding World dreams are made of. According to a press release from the beloved toy company, the Harry Potter-themed set will be available as of Sept. 1 for $399.99. It will be sold online and in Lego stores nationwide. Can’t wait that long? Members of Lego’s free VIP rewards program can buy the Hogwarts Castle set on Aug. 15.
The expansive castle includes all of the important settings from Hogwarts that fans of the series have come to know and love, including the Chamber of Secrets, the Room of Requirement, the Great Hall, Dumbledore’s office and the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom. You also get iconic items like house banners, Tom Riddle’s diary and the Goblet of Fire.
In addition to the castle, the set also includes outdoor settings like the hut of Hagrid, the Whomping Willow tree and five buildable boats. Even for the most experienced Lego builder, completing this whole set is bound to keep you busy for hours on end.
Of course, the set also has plenty of Harry Potter characters to populate the buildings, including Harry, Hermione, Ron and all your favorite professors, like Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall. The set even comes with not-so-beloved characters like Draco, Voldemort, Dolores Umbridge and Bellatrix Lestrange.
You even get minifigures of Hogwarts founders Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw.
This is clearly a must-have set for Potter fans. Just check out some other awesome features of the set, like this moving staircase:

Other Harry Potter Lego products include Aragog’s Lair and the Hogwarts Express train, but the new Hogwarts Castle is the company’s biggest yet. A previous Lego edition of the Hogwarts Castle clocked in at a much more modest 1,290 pieces.
