Hi Eurobricks!

 

Here is the Hogwarts Castle I made for Russian Fan Forum of Lego Moscow Festival "Builders’ Battle 2018" which was held on April 1st 2018 (this is not a joke).

In 2001, when I was a little kid, I dreamt of 4709 Hogwarts Castle but could not get it because I preferred other sets such as 7163 Republic Gunship. As such, seventeen years later I made a Hogwarts MOC looking like an ultimate exclusive set from an alternate reality and combining best elements from 2001-2007 and 2010 Harry Potter sets.

 

To overcome my bricks' limits, I took the layout of the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando. Therefore, my MOC consists of Great Hall, Grand Tower and Astronomy Tower combined with the Viaduct entrance hall:

The feast in Great Hall is full of different and tasty food:

You can see floating candles, banners of the Houses and a house point-calculating machine.

 

The entrance hall antechamber can be separated from the Great Hall:

Hogwarts heraldry at the entrance:

A suit of armor protects the castle, ready to be animated by the wizards:

The Grand Tower is the tallest structure of Hogwarts:

It includes the library, the Gryffindor common room and the Gryffindor dormitory:

- Always.

During the Festival, Hogwarts was displayed on the City diorama alongside modular buildings, UFO and Ghostbusters' HQ:
