great addition to the castlethis set is a great addition for the new wave of H.P. sets coming out, especially is you have the castle to attach it to.
the car is pretty cool, and it can actually hold both minifigs (not side by side though) and the trunk can open and holds two suitcases.
the whomping willow can hold the car and spin it until the car goes flying (comes with a couple huge stickers, but they're not too bad to attach).
though the set is named after the whomping willow, the castle build is what i was truly aiming for to add it to the larger hogwarts castle.
snapes office is pretty cool but i turned it to dumbledore's office instead (dumbledore needed more space). even added a pedestal to hold his memory plate from the collectible minifigures series and a clip to hold tom riddle's book that came with dobby.
the potions lab is pretty fun to play in though my 6 year old wanted desks, so i threw some together from my other pieces and they just sit on the table near the classroom. also added a clip on the wall to hold mad eye moody's potion from the collectible minis.
i love that the car can drive through the entry gate, and i can't wait to see if the carriage from the upcoming grindlewald's escape can fit also.
slightly remodled the owlery so it can fit both the owls now (harry's and cho's)
the dormitory is pretty basic, just a couple of beds.
i'm hoping more expansion sets like this are in the works; or will be soon. maybe the next expansion can include settings such as the defence against dark arts classroom and a greenhouse so i have someplace to put my mandrakes which are also from the collectible minis series.
all i can say in final is if you get the castle, get this set too. it's well worth it to expand your school.

Great except for page 38!I love this set and it's great except when I got to page 38, it requires the green branches. These branches DO NOT FIT in the brown branches and keep falling out. It was extremely frustrating and I feel like I should break out the Kragle.

RONALD WEASLEY, HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR?!This may be my favorite set from the 2018 Harry Potter line. Not only does it include great rooms from the movies (like Snape's Office, the Potion Classroom, and the Gryffindor Dormitory) but it also includes an impressively accurate Whomping Willow model that moves AND Arthur Weasley's flying Ford Anglia. I'm a huge fan of the new student minifigs as well--their short legs are way more accurate and it makes them so much cuter than previous iterations. This set looks great connected to the Great Hall set, but even by itself it's absolutely awesome.

Harry Potter is Back!Over the moon that my favorite LEGO line is back. I LOVED collecting these and playing with them as a kid and teen.
This set is great. The details of the interior are fantastic! The potions classroom is definitely the best version we've gotten so far. Snape's office is also really cool. The table build is extremely detailed. There are a lot of stickers, which I don't love, but they do add a lot of visual appeal to the more plain sections of wall.
This castle is great, and goes well with both the 2010 line and the original 2001 (#4709) Hogwarts. A great addition to the school. The car is definitely the best version yet, and the whomping willow is fantastic.
Minifigs are great too! Snape and Filch are more accurate than their earlier versions with the printed legs. It's nice that you get Hermione with almost every set too. Seamus is a new character to lego and it's really exciting to see LEGO braching out and including new characters.
Overall, this set is probably my favorite of the wave. Looks great if you attach more than one or stack them on top of each other (although that takes some custom building to get it to look right).
