Will LEGO Harry Potter 71043 Hogwarts Castle be a microscale set?

The rumoured direct to consumer LEGO set, 71043 Hogwarts Castle, may be a microscale recreation of the key location.

A new LEGO Harry Potter set, 71043 Hogwarts Castle, is expected to launch exclusively at LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com later this year. It has been broadly assumed that this would connect to the other upcoming Hogwarts sets, 75903 Whomping Willow and 75904 Hogwarts Great Hall, but now the Brick Fan reports rumours suggesting that the set will actually be microscale.

Information that is reported from Just2Good compares what the set will be to the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 76042 SHIELD Helicarrier set, which while microscale, included a stand showcasing a selection of core minifigures. This should be treated as rumour until an official announcement comes from the LEGO Group, when Potter fans can finally find out how much money they will need to part with to own a modern LEGO Hogwarts set.

Some of the LEGO Wizarding World of Harry Potter sets will launch on July 1, and some will launch on August 1. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in cinemas on November 16.
