Unless you’ve been living deep in the Forbidden Forest, you’ve already seen the awesome pictures of Alice’s LEGO Hogwarts here on The Brothers Brick. Several thousand more of you got to see it in person this past weekend at Emerald City Comicon here in Seattle. But I suspect many of you wonder how Alice Finch Continue reading →
LEGO Harry Potter models on The Brothers Brick
Last October at BrickCon 2012, Seattle-area builder Alice Finch unveiled what just might be the largest LEGO structure built by a single person, a near-complete minifig-scale rendition of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series of books and the corresponding movies. Alice’s Hogwarts took home both “People’s Choice” and “Best Continue reading →
I once tried to build a microscale LEGO version of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but never got very far. Bart Willen has certainly been more successful, with a LEGO rendition full of spires and columns atop a cliff. Via MicroBricks.
I am always happy to see beautiful Harry Potter creations once in a while. Despite all the sets, it seams to me that there aren’t much of HP creations these days. This Dumbeldore’s oval office build by Robuko was a real treat. I love the frame built using technic threads, bookcases and the walls. Check Continue reading →
I first noticed Carson Hart‘s LEGO models over the holidays, but was offline at the appropriate times to blog his Christmas-themed creations. Thankfully, he’s followed it up with some other great models, including this diorama of Moaning Myrtle’s bathroom in Hogwart’s Castle. This microscale version of The Burrow is also nice, complete with a micro-magical Continue reading →
Just in time for the Harry Potter movie, Mark Kelso presents some punny humor.
Matija Grguric presents a delightful minifig-scale build of the Burrow from Harry Potter. This 2+ feet tall model captures the crooked look of the building, and note the use of tan plates in horizontal and vertical directions to achieve the looks of wooden planks. See this creation from different angles on Flickr.
Amazon.com has the LEGO Harry Potter set 4842 Hogwarts Castle (not to be confused with the smaller 4867 Hogwarts) at $95, down from the MSRP of $130. Lots of lovely tan. And remember, you don’t just have to buy LEGO from Amazon.com to help support The Brothers Brick — just click through from the main Continue reading →
Speaking of FBTB, their CubeDude Vignettes Contest is now complete, and has yielded some nice results. Larry Lars captures Jabba the Hutt’s musical entertainers in his vignette: Andy Grubb deservedly takes home the first place prize, though, with this awesome forced-perspective view of Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy pursuing the golden snitch in a game Continue reading →
With LEGO Harry Potter sets making a return this year, it’s nice to see people building various Harry Potter creations again. Matn has posted a gorgeous Hogsmeade Station that would look just as great in a regular Town/Train layout: Not content to build something only for the camera (as many of us do — who Continue reading →
I assume this will be unveiled at BrickCon 2010 sometime soon but I’ve seen no evidence yet. Either way it’s definitely after the time I was told I could publish so… Complete set of pictures The short: 10217 – Diagon Alley™; Ages 14+; 2,025 pieces; US $149.99 CA $199.99 UK £132.75 DE 149.99 € The Continue reading →
The large-scale LEGO Star Wars set 10212 Imperial Shuttle unveiled at BrickWorld in June is now available from the LEGO Shop. The set includes 5 minifigs and 2503 pieces, and costs 260 USD. The Harry Potter book series may have come to a conclusion, but the movies continue, with the first half of Harry Potter Continue reading →
The Hog’s Head is a cute tudor house from Harry Potter but one that would look equally excellent on a castle layout. _Matn has many other lovely Harry Potter creations with inspiration for town and castle fans alike.
It’s quite hard to tell that this Hogwarts Express train (the “Olton Hall” to be precise) by Carl Greatrix (Bricktrix) is actually LEGO. But it is aside from some custom stickers and a very small number of altered parts. The backdrop and track, however, is not. And yes it would have been lovely if TLG Continue reading →
Figures.com has detailed pictures of the upcoming Harry Potter sets for late 2010. Although you won’t be getting four Snapes in 4737 Quidditch Match, you can count on expanding your collection of Harry Potter minifigs with popular characters such as Ginny Weasley in the non-existent burning of 4840 The Burrow and Luna Lovegood with her Continue reading →
