This Wednesday, June 15, is the special launch event for the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) set. In line with that is the appearance of designer Justin Ramsden at the Leicester Square LEGO Store in London to graciously sign the very first Hogwarts Castle sets (71043) purchased there. But that’s not the only significant Wizarding World-related event going on for the UK this month. Ten days from now, during the British Bank Holiday weekend on August 25, retail chain Smyths Toys will be doing an epic LEGO giveaway event; that means free LEGO Harry Potter sets await!
Word of this giveaway at Smyths Toys was posted on HotUKDeals, and further details reveal that this will be going on at all Smyths Toys Superstores throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so interested collectors need only to check out the Smyths branch nearest to them. These LEGO Harry Potter giveaways are good only until supplies last.
The LEGO Harry Potter Giveaway events at Smyths Toys Superstore will go on for only three hours, 11AM to 2PM, of Saturday, August 25 during the Bank Holiday. Also happening in conjunction with the giveaways are special Potter-verse activities like wand casting demonstrations and more.
Just to reiterate, the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) is now available for LEGO VIP members, and is slated for a general public release on September 1. The set retails for $400, coming in at 6,020 pieces.
