Lego Mania Fan Review

Hogwarts Castle, where do we even begin with this enormous piece. The build itself is incredible, full of details capturing a lot of the key moments in the films including Hagrid's Hut, The Chamber of Secrets and the Great Hall. This is the definition of a family build. I am always saying that these models build memories and this is the exact experience I am referring too. Picture this - watching the franchise with your children, siblings, cousins, parents and then working as a collective on this 6000 piece, recreating the scenes within the film and for the big geeks barking out lines as you do so. It is something to reflect on and recreate in the future. Although collectable, this model is geared towards a family build. It focuses more on the characters and the scenes as opposed to the realism illustrated in many of the other models. I love the Christmas feel of this model, the large scale mini and microfigures which allow you to reenact scenes or create new adventures with your family. It is a feel good model ready for a family to explore.

Customer Reviews of This Build

This model is coming in hot at a rating of 4.9 out of 5 in Amazon and 4.8 out of 5 on Lego. To date, this is the highest rated Lego product I have come across on multiple platforms. The key word used for this model that I loved was that it was EPIC. How fitting for a masterpiece of literature, a masterpiece of cinematic magic (pardon the pun) and a masterpiece of Lego. The microfigures are challenging to use but one clever customer demonstrated how this can be overcome simply by the assistance of a child. Could not be more fitting for what I have been going on about all along.

In Summary

This is a mammoth of a build for a team of different skills. Fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and a dog to hide the parts that were just eh... extras in the box in case we lost some. This is a fun model with its own piece of magic. It requires teamwork, commitment and a detailed prior understanding of the films to build. Get the films watched, get the books read and then get the workman boots and gloves on for a group challenge like no other.

Keep on Building

Much Love
