    I cannot even with how deeply I want this. Still haven’t been able to justify the $500 Disney castle I’ve been yearning for, and now this. :(

  2. Tom says:

    I had planned to get all the new HP sets, but I think this might just be the only one I need (maybe Hogwarts Express to).

    • Max says:

      100% agree. Those two sets are the only Wizarding World sets I feel I truly need. The others are cool and all, but just don’t have enough going on to warrant a purchase

  3. Alison says:

    This is amazing. The Australian price however seems particularly expensive.

  4. Xavier says:

    Official release says 15 August for VIPs and 1 September for the people who are not VIP on Lego store ie haven’t bought anything from the Lego online Shop before.

    Once again Australian customers are being fleeced. US price is $400, or approx. $A500 at current ER. Add GST and we’re still paying $100 too much. Stunning set though, hopefully it will hit retail here at a bit of a discount, like the Porsche did.

      Nah. At the current official US exchange rate of 0.74 (try getting that at bank or currency exhange though) it is $540 AUD. Then factor in US sales tax and the prices become a lot closer. The US market is much bigger than ours and other factors are also at play…foreign trade agreements, logistics costs, etc. A better comparison would be UK and Euro pricing (where our Lego S@H orders come from), which coverts to $622 and $631 AUD respectively. I’d hardly call $20-30 ‘fleecing’. I agree its a stunning set though and will probably get discounted at some point if it makes it to local retail, but its likely a long way off.

    That’s an astonishing set. Very very impressive. Out of my price range and patience-level to build, but it is quite amazing.
