We bought a set of returns of which one should have been the 6020 piece Hogwarts castle. We received 37 bags that are represented in the pics below packaged neatly in the Hogwarts box. We have bags 1-37 with no instructions and no idea which set they belong to. We might as well build it since it's here. :) Any help would be great. Bag 1

Bag 2

Bag 3 Bag 4 the box they came in inside hogwarts all bags piled in

    Based on the 2 answers, you seem to have paid for a set worth $400 and received about $80 worth of parts. Have you alerted the seller that they need to be more vigilant about checking their returns?

  • I know. Pretty frustrating. It was a big box store, so not sure they will listen, but worth a try.

    Maybe the unusually high numbers on the bags provide a clue. In fact, I have never encountered a set going up 30-something in bag numbers, so maybe it is from some different series (LEGO educational or even LEGO serious play). Mar 2 at 15:10
  • 71043 (the big Hogwarts castle) does contain bags numbered that high, 10276 (Colosseum) apparently also does (but the colors of OP's parts rules that set out)h, it seems 75192 does NOT. Mar 3 at 11:42
  • Building instructions for the large castle can be found here. Sadly it doesn't appear to include a blue door in bag 36 :( May 5 at 11:49

I believe you have a mix of at least two sets: 11005 Creative Fun and one of either 10717 Bricks Bricks Bricks or 11717 Bricks Bricks Plates.


Bag 36 contains a Door 1 x 4 x 6 with 4 Panes and Stud Handle (Medium Blue) which was featured in 5 sets.

11003 Bricks and Eyes

TLDR. Although bricks seem to be packed in sealed bags, these looks to be a mixture of parts since none of existing set inventories contain such combination of bricks.


More details below.

Based on the colors of the bricks you have received this is definitely not a Hogwarts Castle.

Let's start with contents of bag #36, since it has elements easier to identify. The combination of Door 1 x 4 x 6 with 4 Panes and Stud Handle mentioned in another answer is definitely not in Medium Blue, but some shade of Azure. Checking Bricklink for colors available for this element we can conclude this is Medium Azure colored item. Now this element come in just 5 sets, none of which have Plate, Round 4 x 4 with Hole OR Brick, Round 4 x 4 with Hole in Dark Tan. So the set this bag comes from doesn't exist.

Now let's see bag #4. Combination of Brick 1 x 2 in Coral color as well as Slope, Curved 2 x 1 x 1 1/3 with Recessed Stud in Lime may suggest this is Bricks and Animals (11011), but it doesn't include any of Slope, Inverted 45 2 x 2 in shades of blue. So no set for this bag as well.

Bag #19 again, suggest combination of Brick, Modified 1 x 1 with Stud on 1 Side in Coral color with Slope, Curved 3 x 1 x 2 with Stud in Lime suggest this may be Bricks and Animals (11011), but this set doesn't contain Plate 4 x 4 in Green.

These bags come from either set that has not been inventoried yet on Bricklink or incorrect bricks have been packaged for particular set (which might explain why they have been returned). The source of these bricks/bags would be some larger set from LEGO Classic series.

    I went back and forth on whether that door was Medium Azure or Medium Blue and went with the one that I could find a plausible set match for. But the fact that I missed the color of the 4x4 tile too tells me I need to re-calibrate my monitor. +1 for catching that.
