Bloody brilliant Lufty. Loved the seer/fortune teller teacher, great use of parts. Haven't seen those guardian legs to make characters taller before, certainly works for Hagrid.

So good! I think you really captured the spirit of Hogwarts (literally in a few pictures!). I love the greenhouse with mandrake-pulling, the potions lesson, the library, Dobby the House Elf, the Weasley twins, Harry, Ron and Hermione, the list goes on!

This must have taken ages to create, no wonder you have been 'away' for a while, Lufty. Welcome back!

How did you get those flames to light up on the torches?

It's brilliant!

In addition to what GrahamB has mentioned, I also love the Owlery, and Dumbledore's study with the pensieve - and Fawkes. 

Such fun.

Thank you, Klickteryx! I struggled a bit with those guardian legs because they are not really adequate... But, being half-giant, Hagrid has to be taller than the others, and the taller clown legs were too "thin" for him…  ;)

Thank you, dearest Graham, I’m so glad you liked it :) It has been a rough year, you know why, but playmobil is always there with several projects and customs waiting for a moment of distraction to spread some joy. ;)
The torches with lights are not modified, they’re electric light modules system X from set 6160, I thought they might go unnoticed in the middle of all the Steck :D


It's brilliant!

Thanks, Raven! It’s special to get a compliment from you, because I love your pics here on PF  :love:

I cannot comment on these regarding Harry Potter (a couple of movies watched, and long forgotten :-[ ) - but it's GORGEOUS!

Love the building, and the tiny tower-building on rocks :love:

And the white guy with a beard! I never considered using a beard with that hair - well.. until now :P

I also love the pic of the reading cat - it's a wonderful photo. :heart:

(I do remember making a "Hagrid" for a friend, but went with a fat guy with old legs with artic boots - the kind Patrick... uhm.. the guys from the Scott Polar Institute wear ;) )

I forgot to mention the pheasant who wants to be a phoenix when she grows up!

Lots of wonderful stuff there. Really love what you've done  :love:

If you are going to mix that other brand their minifig sized Niffler is excellent

I love the buildings and the scenes, and i don't even know the context, as i haven't read the books yet (i will some day).
When thinking outside the box you make the greatest things happen.
