Lego has just revealed two new sets from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: one from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, featuring Aragog the spider, and another from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald, which is the latest of the sets being released for this November’s new movie (following 75951 Grindelwald’s Escape). These sets should be available this August as part of the summer wave.
Lego Fantastic Beasts 75952 – Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures | 694 Pieces | $49.99
This set conveniently features the whole main gang from the Fantastic Beasts movie, while the builds themselves look beautiful, with the different magical creatures bringing interesting splashes of color to the transforming suitcase. However, if you look closely you may be able to spot the true star of this set, the molded minifig-scale niffler. It’s also a great deal with nearly 700 pieces for only $50 USD.
Step into LEGO® Fantastic Beasts™ 75952 Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures, there’s room for everyone! Help Newt take Jacob, Tina and Queenie on a tour around the different magical beast habitats, and teach them how to look after the Erumpent, Occamy, Thunderbird, Niffler and Bowtruckle. Have lots of Fantastic Beasts fun exploring, mixing potions and caring for the magical creatures.
• Includes 4 minifigures: Newt Scamander™, Jacob Kowalski, Tina Goldstein™ and Queenie Goldstein™, as well as buildable Erumpent, Occamy and Thunderbird creatures, plus Niffler and Bowtruckle figures.
• Features a buildable and foldable case containing a nest with an Occamy egg, shelter and grooming areas.
• Accessory elements include 4 wands, a teapot, brush, meat cleaver, turkey leg, umbrella, helmet, coins, gold bar, ladder, bucket and magic potions
LEGO Harry Potter 75950 – Aragog’s Lair | 157 Pieces | $14.99
This set seems to be a remarkably similar modern remake of the original set, Aragog in The Dark Forest, which also featured Harry, Ron, and Aragog the spider. Although I like the original for its nostalgic factor, this rendition is a huge improvement. The set includes both the new lantern and candle elements and comes at a surprising price point of $14.99, about five dollars less than I expected.
Who dares enter LEGO® Harry Potter™ 75950 Aragog’s Lair? Help Harry and Ron escape the giant spider and his army of offspring in the Forbidden Forest. Use your magic wands and lantern to fend off the colony of spiders, flying cobweb and Aragog’s fearsome fangs—then escape the creepy hollow!
• Includes Harry Potter™ and Ron Weasley™ minifigures.
• Features a buildable Aragog spider and tree.
• Aragog has 8 posable legs and 2 movable fangs. • Tree has a spider web shooting function, attached spider web and a buildable red and white mushroom.

Why is there a meat cleaver included in Newt’s briefcase?
@Hakan Hehe, I know what you’re thinking, and it’s definitely not for making some…magical filets… you might say. I think I remember a scene in the movie where Newt was chopping some food for the creatures.
That case is a beautiful idea! What a wonderful, magical set! Can’t wait to get my hands on that one!
I’m trying to remember back to a time when I considered a “buildable mushroom” to be a feature of note.
