Lego has had a long and fruitful partnership with Warner Bros., yielding several magical sets based on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Now, at Toy Fair 2018, Lego is unveiling yet another fantastic set based on the popular franchise: Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall.

The 878-piece set (with 10 minifigures) captures the sophisticated and regal Great Hall, as characters like Hagrid, Harry, Hermione, and Ron enjoy the illustrious building in all its glory. There are four levels and a spiral staircase, allowing users to explore the potion room, treasure room, and the Mirror of Erised.

The main hub of the Great Hall features several iconic Harry Potter staples, including floating candles, a trophy cup, reversible house banners, and the sorting hat. And as you look at the images above, see if you can spot Scabbers and Hedwig.

“When it first launched in 2001, Lego Harry Potter was a global sellout due to its broad appeal and ability to spark imaginative play, so we’re thrilled to go deeper into the Wizarding World to bring even more magic and excitement to Lego play,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing and entertainment for Lego.

At 878 pieces, the Hogwarts Great Hall set isn’t particularly daunting. And neither is the price, coming in at a reasonable $99. Lego said the set will launch on August 1, along with additional building sets and figures.
