"When I was a young boy, I was a die-hard Harry Potter and Lego fan. I would collect all of the old Harry Potter Lego sets, especially the Hogwarts castle sets. Still, as a child, I always yearned for a Lego set as grandiose as the magical castle in my imagination. If only my younger self had a time machine because this set is like a dream come true!
One can immediately tell that the design of the castle was a labor of love with TONS of details for the most avid Potterheads. The price is rather high, but it is more than worth it for the 3rd largest (as of this review) Lego set ever produced. Even if you know nothing about the Harry Potter franchise, I believe any Lego expert can find something to love about this set.
It took me TWO marathons of the original 8-film saga to complete the set, but I had so much fun finishing it. If you're looking for a fantastic build, seriously, look no further!"

"I love the Lego architecture series, but some of the constructions can appear rather bland in color; however, this Trafalgar Square set is not like those. It is visually striking and vibrant! What's more, the clever use of Lego pieces to create the building and the stairwell is nothing short of genius. I'm actually suprised that this set doesn't get more love. A wonderful build at an excellent value: I cannot recommend it highly enough."
