I’m quite enjoying the burst of popularity the Harry Potter franchise seems to be receiving these days, not only because of the official LEGO Harry Potter sets newly released, but because of the many superb models fans have been creating. Builder Chungpo Cheng has made an excellent, large-scale model of your favorite half-giant, Rubeus Hagrid. The builder has done a particularly great job with Hagrid’s face and hair, which can be the most difficult part of the human body to translate into LEGO bricks.
No details were spared on Hagrid’s clothes as well — from his belt buckle, to his coat clasps, they are all faithfully recreated. However, my favorite item has to be Hagrid’s pink umbrella, which can be spotted inside his right coat pocket. My only gripe with the model is that the crossbow appears to be more of a “crosspistol” when compared to the large size of Hagrid himself.
