While he hated his time there, it had some really memorable moments, and it was therefore no big surprise to see it featured among the 2020 LEGO Harry Potter sets. It is an amazing set, but with some modifications, you can make it even better. Here is how...

Here is a flesh coloured version you can make yourself.
