Possibly the best Hogwarts Express yet!
" This new rendition of the Hogwarts Express is beautiful- the red and black slick design really makes it look like the one from the film. Harry, Ron, and Hermione were musts for this set, but I appreciate the inclusion of professor Lupin, with an interesting alternate face, and I was surprised by the inclusion of the trolley witch, a new but cool figure nonetheless. The train station itself has a fun feature- going through the wall to platform 9 and 3/4. All of the stickers in the set were put to good use, and the clock piece is a nice print. The train itself is very tough, and holds all of its parts together well. The passenger seats, while slightly crammed in, were a good addition. One of my favorite parts of the set is the trolley itself. I love the chocolate frog and other treats included in it. it fits inside the passenger cabin very well. A dementor is included in the set as well, with a nice cape and ghost-like tail piece. This set is an amazing build, and can be for anybody- Harry Potter fan or not! "

Beautiful set with introductions of new pieces
" This Harry Potter scene was a very important one in Prisoner of Azkaban, my favorite film. Finally a Sirius Black figure that looks awesome appears in a set. Harry and Two dementors appear in the set, which is god if you want to build a Dementor army. My favorite part of the set is the stag. I love deer, and this one is a "fine addition to my collection." The transparent blue body with sparkling element really gives you the magic used to create this patronas. The stag's antlers are made of rubber, which was an unexpected aspect of the set. The setting has two trees, which look good, but not really from the back. I'd suggest keeping the back of the set to a wall. If you are an avid collector of special pieces or just a Harry Potter fan, this set is a must. The only problem, though, is that it is 20 bucks (forgive the pun) for 121 pieces, so not the best Price per Part ratio, but I don't care about that because the Stag was an expensive piece to manufacture.

Awesome set- Definitely BUY!
" Back before Harry Potter Lego sets came back recently, the Aragog spider designs were definitely below par, but understandable for that time. Aragog sets really needed this evolution. The spider design is beautiful, and has the right color schemes and lots of posable limbs. Harry and Ron come with cool-looking lanterns and candles, and the small, new generation spider designs are phenomenal. The small tree has a web-shooting feature, which is always fun. Aragog really blends in with the tree, and the set itself is very well priced. If you are a hardcore Harry Potter fan, this is a must-get set! "

Good Set, but horrible Price
" I understand that there are some big, special pieces in the set such as the mountain piece, beehive, bear, and helicopter cockpit, but $60 for a 300 piece set is a Price Per Part Ratio of $0.20. For those of you who don't know what price per part is, it is an estimate of how much each part in the set would be worth, making up the total cost of the set. The average ratio for a fair-priced set is $0.10, so this set is definitely not well priced. Otherwise, the bear is a beautiful recolor of the polar bear and grizzly from the forest police station back in the day. The hide out is wacky and funny, and the buggy has a good design. The helicopter, while unoriginal, looks good from the outside, but it is very hard to put anything inside, as there is only one opening, and now doors. Overall, if this were at most a $45 set, I'd give it 5 stars. Get it if it is on sale somewhere! "
