If you've just invested in the Hogwarts reproduction from the LEGO Harry Potter set 71043 Hogwarts Castle, here is what to accompany it on your shelves with the reference 40289 Diagon Alley which reproduces Diagon Alley in the same micro format.

No micro-figurines representing characters in this box, apart from the goblin statue, but a minifig of Garrick Ollivander, the maker of magic wands.

In terms of constructions, we therefore find the Gringotts Sorcerer's Bank, Ollivander's shop, the Flourish & Botts bookstore (Fleury and Bott), the Quidditch accessories shop and the Weasley family's joke and joke shop.

Already available in Slovenia in at least one LEGO Certified Store, this box should soon arrive in LEGO Stores and on the official online store.

An important detail, the reference 40289 may suggest that it is in fact a product intended to be offered for the purchase of a particular reference. The references 40288 and 40290 were indeed used for promotional products (the BB-8 polybag and the small set 60 Years of the Brick). To be continued...

Now that the effect of the announcement has faded and you have had time to think about the question, know that you have 4 days to decide whether or not to spend the 420 € requested by LEGO in exchange for the set. Lego harry potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle with its 6020 pieces, four minifigs and 27 micro-figures.

You have probably already had time to find a 69 x 43 cm location in your home to exhibit this imposing reproduction of Hogwarts which will be available as of August 15 in preview for members of the VIP program and from September 1 for anyone who hasn't yet understood that signing up for this program is free and that it's the only benefit offered by the official LEGO store ...

If not, the video presentation of the set by the two designers Justin Ramsden and Crystal Fontan will give you some additional decision-making elements or some welcome negotiating points if you share your living space with a few members of your family who do not welcome the arrival of the thing.

To be completely honest with you, I will skip this box. I like the universe (cinematographic, I have never read the books) of Harry Potter but not to the point of sacrificing the space necessary for the development of this luxury derivative product that I also find very success.
