With the last movie of the franchise looming, and a possible box office record for the Harry Potter series, everyone is putting their bets on an incredible Harry Potter product. Both unofficial and official products flood the market in an attempt to make a money pile at the seller’s feet; however, it takes more than a cheesy little Hogwarts Mug or a second grade wizard wand to impress most hardcore Harry Potter fans, and we have seen many examples of this through the years. J. K. Rowling has expressed her sadness over the end of the series, but about a year after the last book was released, she officially commented that you never know when and if there could be a continuation of the franchise.
However, if you are expecting it anytime soon then I would suggest dropping that thought immediately and instead turning your mind and eyes towards the greater things inspired by Harry Potter. How about the 602,000 matchstick Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry model for example? If you thought you built something that was impressive when you were younger, you probably shouldn’t show it to Patrick Acton.
The matchstick pioneer and builder has created the most awesome replica of the Hogwarts School. Looking at it in these images doesn’t even come close to doing it justice. I surely wouldn’t mind standing next to that thing to really see the details on it. It took Patrick three years and 15 gallons of wood glue to put it all together. Talk about true dedication!
