You could always just MOC your own gatehouse.

Have the keep, gatehouse, and any other section (dungeon, additional towers, etc) as separate sets. The one thing Harry Potter had going for it was the fact the castles actually had pseudo interiors. I'd rather see a fold-up keep with a modular system to gradually build the curtain walls.

Just so you know, we would rather not have multiple posts from the same user, all in a row. To reply to multiple quotes, just copy the next quote into your post. If you've already posted it, click the edit button. It keeps the threads cleaner.
If they didn't want to have a gatehouse on the more recent sets then they should not have had a portcullis in them at all then it would at least work and make sense. Many older castles that do not have gatehouses do not have a portcullis either so the design makes sense.

I think most of us would agree that a series of sets that you could snap into a 'main' castle set would be terrific (and quite retro) but it's obvious that LEGO doesn't think it would sell or they would have done so already. Don't think they don't know the LEGO community wants it but they have the all important soccer-moms to keep in mind as well. The average adult or parent or parents of adults or adults who are parents tend to think that LEGO sets already can only be built into the model depicted on the front of the box, so dollars to doughnuts, they aren't going to buy their children something so stimulating as a grey wall. Especially if said grey wall cost $40!

a lot of peaplle don't have enough money to buy a castle that is $200.
anyway i totaly agree,why don't they make the next castle a little smaller and make a proper gate house.
