Totally worth it
" Spending £350 on what a lot of friends and relatives call 'a lump of plastic' was a daunting prospect, but as soon as I saw this set, I knew I had to VIP up and get it, and I'm so glad I did. The level of detail is unprecedented, and creating each little diorama adds to the excitement as the build progresses. I love that Devil's Snare is hidden 'in the depths of the castle' and isn't actually visible intil you pull the two halves apart. The tiny details, such as Tom Riddle's Diary on the floor of the Chamber of Secreats, or the Philosopher's stone at the foot of the mirror of Erised just adds to the overall sense of skill and dedication from the designers.
This is microfig scale, and that is to the model's benefit. Having the set as Minifig scale would have made it unweildly and distressingly expensive. This isn't a playset, it's a model to be created and admired.
