Lego released an official Harry Potter Hogwarts playset. It’s okay. I’m sure it would take a while to build, and it would be nice to have. It doesn’t hold a candle to what Flickr user Alice Finch did. I am in absolute awe of what she’s built. On her Flickr page, she says “It took 400,000 bricks and took 12 months to build.” I can only imagine how much it cost since so many of the bricks had to be special ordered. Furthermore, the amount of trial and error must have been staggering. And the attention to detail is astounding. Scenes from the books/movies have been recreated throughout sculpture. Oh, and the castle also lights up.
Hit the jump to check out this amazing Lego building.
