Snape's Class is situated in the undergrounds of Hogwarts. It contains about 163 parts including three figures. The set costs about 20 dollar, I got one for 15 euro, in new condition.
Snape teaches the magical gifted children how to make special potions and such things. In the series of LEGO Harry Potter Snape has a glow in the dark head, which is nice, but not so compitable with other heads. The newer Snape head is nicer, but this one is also acceptable. His torso and legs have a nice, purple print. The set also includes Ronald Weasly and Peeves. Peeves you say? He's a ghost who likes to make you jokes and tricks with you. I like the fact that he is included in this set. Peeves has a great print on his head (useful for zombies) and also a nice torso.
Let's move on to the set itself. The building is pretty nice, following the standard procedure to go with other Harry Potter buildings (if you stack them, you can make one big Hogwarts). The building has two parts: the classroom and the part where a black cauldron is warming up a potion
The classroom has a little table that can be opened up to find a spare key and a frog. Some bottles are spreaded around. There's also a door with a juniorized wall, but the wall isn't that bad. There's also a brown panel with printed shelves and potions. You can put the panel down to find Peeves hiding himself. Ron's pet rat has also joined the room.
In the second part you can shove a piece away so the cauldron falls of and a magical text comes to display.
The special parts of this set are: the unique minifigure of Peeves, the yellow ladle, the cauldron and the red potionbook.
I like this set (then again, I like every Harry Potter set), it has nice and unique parts, and very useful parts. Like in most Harry Potter sets the minifigures and the nicest part of the set, although for me they are. 4705 Snape's Class has also cool accesoires. I recommend this set to every LEGO Harry Potter fan, if you're a Castle fan you'd like it also.
