But when there is an oportunity for you to all of the sudden own it, I didn´t hesitate after all.
To fuss up things a bit more, lets just say a guy gave me it from the back of his car...
I am not a reviewers expert in any way, and Svelte kind of already made an exelent review of this set,
I just wanted to fill in the blanks of this set, and I do hope someone finds the time to make a proper review one day.
I should state once more, I am not a HP fan, and therefore I am not familiar with all the things and rooms in this set.
I neither have a desire to look it up. If you don´t either know what different items or rooms is, you check it up
With no further talk, lets get to it.

These came out in 2001, 2004 and 2007 so I guess it was about time there was a new one.
The set contains of 10 polybags, all numbered:
Funny thing with this set is that even if there are stickers in it, some parts are printed.
We will come back to that later.
Random pages out of the 3 instruction books:
The Dementors have two different printings on their heads as shown in this picture.
Harry and Hermione backsides and Albus with no bear and hair.
Albus head also has two faces and a printed backside of the torso.
If a minifig isn´t shown in any picture from it´s back, it doesn´t have a printing there.
Next picture is Mrs Norris (the cat) with printing, and Harrys invisibility cloak:
The owls of this set is really nice:
This is the small parts of the wall that goes in between th bigger builds.
On the box you can see that Harry is hiding in here. I have no idea why.
Restricted area of the library.
This is one of the printed tiles in this set.
The night can spin around, and behind him is a...
...black book hidden. No books in this set have any printing (there are 3 brown books in the Restricted area as well).
Here is where the owls are stored when they are not delivering letters.
Bag 6 and 7:
On to the great hall.
There are some really nice parts in this part of the building.
Another printed tile. Doesn´t "Powerfull" spells with one "L"?
3 of many reasons why Harry Potter
In its all glory.
1st picture is the castle unfolded.
Folded as much as can get.
Same folding but from the inside.
And again unfolded.
And with all the figs in it. Don´t mind Timo Räisänen singing there. That is an Easter egg to someone
A picture to show the coloured glas above the door which I really like
Just added this picture since I really think this hair looks so much better than the horrid original one.
For the request I added a better picture of the cat (which I had no idea it had a name, but I got some help with that).
It was a pretty good set to build, but once again since I am not a fan of this wizard I guess you who are will enjoy the set much more than I do. It has some awesome figs and animals in it. Some nice printed parts, but apart from that, this set will live a short life assambled in my LEGO world.
If there is anything you want to see better pictures of, just let me know.
Thanks for taking your time to look at this review.
At last I just want to thank the guy that gave me the opportunity to be able to share this experiance with you.
Once again, Thanks!
