LEGO Harry Potter reveals 8 new sets for Summer 2021, available to pre-order now [News]

The core Harry Potter books and movies may be wrapped up now, but the merchandising is still chugging along at top speed. Today, LEGO has unveiled the summer 2021 wave of Harry Potter sets, which brings new additions to the modular Hogwarts castle series, a chess set, and even a totally new series: giant brick-built minifigures. LEGO says that a selection of the sets is available for pre-order starting today, though at the time of writing they haven’t clarified specifically which sets will be available. With prices ranging from $20 to $130 USD, all of the sets will be released on June 1, though most of them are exclusive to specific retailers until August 1.

2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the LEGO Harry Potter theme, and LEGO is celebrating with this summer’s sets. Six of the sets include the 20th Anniversary logo on the box and contain a special bonus.

Each of these six sets includes an exclusive golden minifigure, much like LEGO did with Star Wars figures in 2019. You’ll need to buy all six sets to get the full collection.

And speaking of collection, LEGO has also introduced Collectible Wizard Cards, which appear to be printed 2×2 tiles. A random assortment of Wizard Cards are included in the 20th Anniversary sets. You’ll get two in the smaller sets, on up to six in the expensive Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets. LEGO has not yet revealed how many unique cards there are, or if they’ll be included in future sets.

Many of the sets continue LEGO’s modular Hogwarts that was started in 2018 with 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall, fitting together to build a larger castle, or combining with previous sets.


Here’s the official press release from LEGO:

New LEGO® Harry Potter™ sets explores the wonderment of the Wizarding World™

BILLUND, April 16th, 2021: Today, the LEGO Group and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have revealed a new captivating mix of LEGO® sets to help young witches and wizards explore the enchanting adventures of Harry Potter’s second year at Hogwarts™.

From the tantalizing tactics of Wizarding Chess to Polyjuice Potion trickery, the sets are packed full of popular characters, creatures and imaginative features to help young builders reenact their favorite adventures from the films, as well as crafting magical storylines of their own.

While the enchanted walls of Hogwarts set the scene for many of the new sets, builders can spread their wings and explore the rest of the wizarding world by taking flight with the fiery feathers of Dumbledore’s beloved Phoenix, Fawkes, or visiting the snow-capped streets of Hogsmeade Village. Many of the sets also interconnect to extend the play into different areas of Hogwarts.

A number of the new sets come with an exclusive golden minifigure to mark the 20th Anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter. For years, LEGO play has helped Wizarding World and LEGO fans feel even closer to the magic, and these collectibles mark just some of the characters that have helped them play out endless memorable moments across two decades of LEGO Harry Potter.

The new sets will be available from LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and selected retailers from 1st June and more widely from 1st August. A selection of the sets will also be available to pre-order from 16th of April at LEGO.com.

Marcos Bessa, LEGO® Harry Potter™ Design Lead commented: “Two decades ago, we launched the first LEGO Harry Potter set – which I played with as a 12 year old – and fans have remained just as enchanted by the magical adventures that they can relive and replay with the LEGO sets today as they were in 2001. These new products are packed full of captivating features and exciting design twists that we hope will excite and enthrall builders of all ages as they explore some of their favourite moments from the films.”

    “Many of the sets continue LEGO’s modular Hogwarts that was started in 2018 with 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall, fitting together to build a larger castle, or combining with previous sets.”

    Arguably these continue LEGO’s modular Hogwarts that was started with the original in 2001 with this 2021 76389 set being a combination and update of the original 2001 Hogwarts Castle (4079) and the 2002 Chamber of Secrets (4703) and Duelling Club (4733) sets.

    Really like the larger “mini figures.” Would love to see it expanded into other genres such as Star Wars. Picturing Luke in his x-wing uniform with helmet!

  3. maxfragg

    the last series of modular hogwarts sets was so great, and yet, the new sets look like bare and minimal set pieces without any motivation to them :-(
