LEGO has announced the largest Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle set to date and it’s over 6,000 pieces! 6,020 pieces to be exact. The number of pieces is mind-blowing but there’s a ton of value you get from having that many pieces. The Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle set is going to give you everything you will need to develop your own Harry Potter world. You can recreate Harry’s first arrival at Hogwarts in the first book to the final Battle of Hogwarts which took place in the last book. Or just let your imagination run wild!
LEGO did make a Hogwarts Castle set before with over 4,800 pieces but that has been discontinued. You can still find them on Amazon from time to time.
If you’re interested in purchasing this LEGO Hogwarts Castle set, it will be available September 1st with an MSRP of $399.99USD. They will be available online or at LEGO stores across the country.
