I hope you’ve been saving your muggle money, because the massive 6020 piece LEGO Hogwarts Castle set is now available in a preview sale for LEGO VIPs online and in-store if you’re lucky enough to live near a LEGO Brand Retail Store.
Read my thoughts on the set if you haven’t already!
The official public release date for the set is 1 September, but as it’s free to sign-up for a LEGO VIP account, there’s really no need to wait till the
- LEGO 71043 Hogwarts Castle – US$399.99 [US]
- LEGO 71043 Hogwarts Castle – AU$649.99 [AUS]
- LEGO 71043 Hogwarts Castle – GBP£349.99 [UK]
- LEGO 71043 Hogwarts Castle – CAD$499.99 [CAN]
- LEGO 71043 Hogwarts Castle– €399.99 [EU]
This is quite possibly the LEGO set of the year, and demand for the set will be astronomical, especially heading into the Christmas season. We’ve seen regular Harry Potter sets sell out or go on back-order on release day.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this set sells out immediately, so best be quick if you don’t want to miss out.
For Aussies, do note that the set will be released locally in most major retailers in September.
If you want a more detailed look at the set and hear from the designers who worked on bringing the second biggest LEGO set ever to life, be sure to watch the designer video which gives you a much better sense of the scale and complexity of the set!
Good luck trying to find space to display this bad boy.
In my reveal post, a whopping 50% of you voted to say that you’d definitely be buying this set.
Are you going to be picking one up or going to wait? As this is quite a substantial purchase, I’ll be holding off on buying this immediately, and opting to wait for it to arrive locally and snag it at a 20% discount if possible.
