The outer architecture is elegantly foreboding, while the smaller features add to the evil vibe. Crystal ball for spying on enemies? Check! Secret trap door to capture victims? Check! The bridge rotates very well, not too easily, so it can still be walked upon without accidentally going overboard. The cauldron is spooktacular. It is large enough to fit quite a lot of small ingredient pieces, which is great for those wanting to make longer, more complex brews and concoctions. The row of spell jars on the shelf above add such nice detail, as do the black thorns that give the throne, bed, and landscape a sinister, spiked quality. In short, this castle has everything a villain could possibly want! Ragana is a phenomenal mini-doll, using all new pieces. I particularly like her colour scheme of pink, green, and black that is also used throughout the set. Aira and Naida have no business being at Ragana's house, but they can use the catapult at a distance, which works great. This set comes with so many other cool pieces, like an hourglass and a dragon book. Overall, Ragana's castle is my favourite set so far, and by favourite, I mean out of the entire Elves AND Friends AND Disney Princess themes. I have been collecting those three themes for many, many years and nothing satisfied my penchant for evil design like this set. Adding a villain to the Elves theme was the best thing that could have been done. It opens a whole new avenue of play/storytelling for Lego fans, and I think it is definitely worth the higher price. My one qualm about this set was the stickers. I'd prefer if they were just printed directly on the pieces, but I know that stickers minimize the cost of having to make new pieces all the time. It's just I usually put the stickers on BEFORE I place the piece on the set, but for some here, you have to put the stickers on AFTER you attach it to the set or else it can go lopsided, and some are at really awkward angles to get the stickers to align just right. Like I said though, it hardly matters. I can't really complain about the stickers when this set is so awesomely villainous!

The set does not disappoint in any way and is a magnificent display piece when finished. I'm a male teen and I normally tend to stay away from sets with mini-dolls, but I simply couldn't resist the outstanding architecture of this evil castle. The build was very straight-forward build and is packed with details and features that kids will love to uncover and play with. My only complaint is that the figure selection seems a little small for a set of this size, but I discovered that all Elves sets come with a relatively small selection of figures. This set has officially gotten me hooked on the Elves set line for good and I plan to purchase many more in the future!Play Experiencerating.prefix4rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 1 hrs 20 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55

I was very excited as I had my eyes on this for months. It didn't disappoint! It was challenging, and I made a few mistakes, but it was great fun to marvel at the beautiful detail in this. LEGO outdid themselves on this! I appreciated the special hoods for Aira and Naida, those are fun to collect. I only have Azari's otherwise. The catapult is cute and works pretty well. The blue things you shoot with (Water?) are not so easy to lose in deep carpet. I loved the Princess Dragon egg, so pretty and sparkly! Estari herself reminded me of Elandra, I can't wait to reuinite them after this. Ragana is very well done, her face is very fit for her castle. Her cat Jynx is well done to, but mine came with bad white printing on the face. I loved the fact that these aren't really planks, the castle is almost built out of bricks! The brick built door is nice, and I love all the moving features. I don't have a favorite room, they are all too amazing. Living room details: Fireplace with lavafall behind it. Her family crest above the fire, cute little bookshelves, a wickedly pretty couch, torch, chocolate bar, and a giant portrait of Ragana. Bedroom details: Bed with hidden compartment, bedside table. Potion room details: cauldron, ingredients, jars, staff, potion Bathroom details: Handheld mirror, stool, large mirror, table with perfume, brush, sink, torch Top: Dragon egg place, baby bottle, cherries, cookie To the throne room is a wobbly bridge to throw unwelcome visitors into a cave area, and the throne room features a crystal ball and spinning throne. An evil green chandeleir, trapdoor to dungeon with breakout wall, steps down, moss spot with a bed area for the cat. All in all, I love this!!!!! Really worth the crazy money.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 3 daysBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- about 2 years agorating.prefix5rating.postfixGreat for Kids and AdultsEllaminnowpeaq | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI bought this set for myself on a whim. I've never put together a Lego set before but was looking for a hobby for myself and something my daughter and I can do together when she gets older. I loved putting this set together! It was just challenging enough to keep me focused and all the pieces came together well. The one challenge I had was on the bars to the dungeon - they came loose after I attached the two pieces to the castle together and it was difficult to reassemble them. It's great looking visually and is a nice display piece in the play room. There are lots of great little features like the trap door, opening front door, and rotating walkway. I really appreciated the level of detail put into this set. My daughter is too young to build the set herself but she loved the finished product - it is a great piece for building imagination and leads to a lot of creative story-telling. I definitely plan to purchase more sets from this collection.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Novice LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
