For the Grand Staircase, it’s a little smaller than I expected but it is able to fit in the current line of Hogwarts sets. There are some Technic pins on the backside that connects to other sections. The main feature of it is that the staircase is able to swivel to two different areas of Hogwarts.

A few days after the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts: Grand Staircase (40577) went live on the LEGO Shop, it now seems to be sold out online in North America. That was pretty quick considering the purchase threshold was at $130 to get it and was gone in less than four days when the promotion was supposed to run until July 31. LEGO Brand Stores may still have them so I suggest calling your local store to see if they have any. It’s funny because my review copy is still in the mail to be delivered so the review will totally be outdated.
