September 1st is just a little over a month away, which means it's almost time for young witches and wizards to head back to Hogwarts. If you're tired of waiting on your own letter of invitation, it's time to bring Hogwarts to your home instead. The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall set is on sale for just $79.99 at Best Buy currently, saving you $20 off its regular price at retailers such as Amazon (opens in new tab). This is one set we haven't seen go on sale until now despite being released about a year ago, which means you do not want to miss this opportunity if it's one you've had your eye on.
This set is a bloody brilliant gift for pretty much any Harry Potter (opens in new tab) fan. You'll just need to be careful, as you may turn them into a LEGO fan in the process! It comes with 878 LEGO bricks along with ten minifigures of characters like Harry, Ron, and Hermione, along with Dumbledore, Hagrid, Professor McGonagall, and more. The set is a reconstruction of the Great Hall with a four-level tower and lots of easter eggs for fans to find and point out, like the Mirror of Erised. You'll also find accessories like the Sorting Hat and magical creatures like Fawkes and the basilisk from the Chamber of Secrets.
Other LEGO Harry Potter sets (opens in new tab) connect to this one so you can complete your model of Hogwarts, including the Whomping Willow set (opens in new tab) and the recently released Clock Tower set (opens in new tab) that's currently only available via Barnes & Noble and LEGO stores. On the other hand, you can go big and grab the 6,020-piece Hogwarts Castle set (opens in new tab) for $400 right now.
