Initially unveiled by a LEGO Certified Store in Singapore earlier today, the free gift has since been reviewed by multiple LEGO fan communities, who have in turn confirmed exactly when we’ll be able to get our hands on the latest addition to Hogwarts – and how much it’s going to cost us in LEGO Harry Potter sets.
According to Hoth Bricks, for one, 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase will be free with a €130 spend on LEGO Harry Potter products from July 15 to 31. That’s a €30 bump on the required spend for the last Wizarding World gift-with-purchase, 40452 Hogwarts Gryffindor Dorms, which was originally available in November 2021.
Not that there aren’t plenty of options for picking up the 224-piece set, of course (which also comes with a standard Hermione Granger minifigure). LEGO gifts-with-purchase typically share figures across spend thresholds in different territories, so we can expect 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase to be free with orders above £130 in the UK and $130 in the US.
From the summer 2022 wave, only 76408 12 Grimmauld Place would be enough alone to qualify for 40577 Hogwarts: Grand Staircase, and even then only in Europe. But a combination of brand new sets, including but not limited to 76401 Hogwarts Courtyard: Sirius’s Rescue, 76402 Hogwarts: Dumbledore’s Office and 76407 The Shrieking Shack & Whomping Willow, would also do the trick.
Alternatively, you could look to bag one of the three massive direct-to-consumer LEGO Harry Potter sets in 71043 Hogwarts Castle, 75978 Diagon Alley or 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition. Any of those would easily qualify for the GWP, and while none of them are currently destined to retire until 2024, 71043 Hogwarts Castle is about to experience a significant price increase in the US.
That could make the timing just right to snag the 6,020-piece set for this gift-with-purchase. It’ll be available with spends of €130 (and likely £130 / $130) from July 15 to 31.
