After seven books, eight films, theme park rides and even some *cough* ‘adult’ toys, you might think Harry Potter nerds would finally be maxed out. But keep on thinking buster because the latest Harry Potter must-have is a frankly ridiculously huge, 6020-piece Hogwarts castle entirely made from LEGO.

The 58cm castle, which is coming to stores in August and will cost ya £349.99, is crammed with towers, turrets, chambers, classrooms, creatures, the Whomping Willow, Hagrid’s hut and loads more iconic features.

It’s the second-largest LEGO set ever made, after the 7,500-piece Star Wars Millennium Falcon.

There are also 4 minifigures (Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw), 27 microfigures featuring students, professors and statues, and five Dementors.

You can relive your favourite moments as one your fave characters including: the big man Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Albus Dumbledore, Professor Snape, Professor McGonagall, Remus Lupin, Professor Dolores Umbridge, Argus Filch, Lord Voldemort, Bellatrix Lestrange or, if you’re so inclined, Aragog the spider.

It’ll be available exclusively from LEGO stores and at shop.lego.com from 15th August 2018, so get in quick to avoid disappointment.
