It’s been something of a fashion for LEGO that, whenever one of their new sets of a certain size and complexity comes out, that they would produce a designer video with the set’s creative minds talking about its original and development. We’ve made sure to cover these whenever they pop up, like the designer video that was released for the LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) from last month.
Well now it’s time for a new vid detailing one of LEGO’s new major set release. And thanks to this LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) designer video, we now have a pretty good grasp on what to expect from this humongous set before its scheduled release next month.
Our hosts for this new video are LEGO Designer Justin Ramsden and Graphic Designer Crystal Fontan, part of the team that conceptualized the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) and made it into a masterfully crafted reality, rendered in micro-scale. According to Ramsden, the features of the structure reflect everything that happened there in all seven years of Harry’s adventures. Check these out, and other details through their LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) designer video which you can find below.
In addition to his appearance in the video above, Ramsden himself will be present at the special launch event for the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) this Wednesday, August 15, at the Leicester Square LEGO Store. This is a prime opportunity for Londoners to get their hands on the set early, and have them signed by Justin Ramsden too.
The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) is currently up for preorder at LEGO Shop@Home, and will be officially released to the general public starting September 1.
