The new LEGO Hogwarts Castle is going to be the one every diehard Harry Potter fan is going to want to own. Clocking in at over 6,000 pieces, this set has everything, and will be a centerpiece to behold.

From the heads of the four houses – Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin, and Rowena Ravenclaw – in Minifigure form, to the Whomping Willow, it seems as though nothing was forgotten. Hagrid’s Hut? Of course. Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom? It wouldn’t be complete without it.

A set of this size, of course, is not going to be cheap and will set you back $399.99 in the U.S. It will be available beginning Sept. 1 on shop.LEGO.com and at LEGO Stores around the country.
