"As a huge HP fan and LEGO fan, I bought this set the moment I saw it. It did not disappoint - the buildings are clearly designed by HP fans, with amazing detail, and look exactly like in the movies. They look gorgeous all together too, I had a lot of fun displaying them facing each other and looking through at the little alleyway - I just wished the pavement/pathway was a little bigger for this reason. The one main downside as many have already said in reviews, is the MANY stickers, while these add most of the iconic details in this set, really could have done as printed bricks. Who knows, maybe when the stickers fade/peel it will make it look even more authentic! Really love this set, and eagerly awaiting more of Diagon Alley - hopefully Gringotts will be released soon?!"
"This was a really beautiful build and intricately well designed model, true to LEGO's usual standards. I wish I could say the same for its pieces - unfortunately, these don't seem to be of the same quality as the build at all. The finished look was ruined by outer pieces that were so faded they appeared translucent, so much that you can actually see the pieces sitting underneath them. My family and I are big Lego fans/collectors and we've never seen this in a Lego set before. Also, on the sides of the car, especially the doors, the yellow colours are very inconsistent and of different shades, giving it quite a messy look. At first I thought maybe this was done on purpose but then compared it to the LEGO images showcased on this page which make it appear it's all exactly the same shade, and which look a LOT better than the real thing. It's such a shame as this set would have been really perfect if not for these low quality pieces damaging the outside look."
