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.

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!
