We always try to bring you all the LEGO news that’s fit to share here, but these past days the only bit of news that gets talked about is the official reveal of LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043), and all the nitty-gritty details and secrets its micro-scale structure holds. There’s really not much more to tell about 71043 that hadn’t been told before. It arrives on August 15 for LEGO VIP members, and September 1 for everybody else. The set’s already listed on shop.LEGO.com too. But perhaps this little update warrants attention: some LEGO brand stores are now accepting pre-orders for the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043). Reports have been coming in from LEGO shoppers that certain LEGO brand stores they’ve been to lately have notices put up at their front doors. The message, apparently, is quite clear: “Ask us about how to Pre-Order our new Exclusive.”
Our fellow LEGO news source, The Brick Fan, has also picked up on this news. On their official Facebook page, at least one happy LEGO fan has confirmed that his local LEGO Store has been accepting pre-orders for the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043), with a receipt snapshot to prove it. It’s real.
This would have to be one of the nicest things LEGO has done for the fans yet. Now, the only thing left to clarify is if the 71043 preordering is good for all LEGO Stores or just a select few. We suggest Potter-fans who want this epic set contact their nearest LEGO Store in their area for confirmation.
