Today LEGO unveils the next ultimate exclusive Harry Potter set, 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition. Designed to celebrate the theme’s 20th anniversary, the new Hogwarts Icons is a 3,010-piece collection of the saga’s major symbols. The set will be available from September 2, 2021, from LEGO Stores and www.lego.com/harrypotter for US $249.99 | UK £249.99
While the front of the box shows the general view, on the back, you’ll discover even more models included in the set. All in all, the collection consists of Harry’s wand and glasses, a chocolate frog, a tray of potions, Tom Riddle’s diary, the Golden Snitch, a Hogwarts scarf, Hedwig carrying a letter to Hogwarts, and three more anniversary minifigures — Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, and Rubeus Hagrid.
The set consists of independent models, so you can choose whether to display everything as one piece or place them separately. This is good news for those of us with limited space for LEGO sets.
The centerpiece is obviously the books with Hedwig on top. The new ultimate version of the magic owl dwarfs the 630-piece build from the last year’s 75979 Hedwig set.
Lately, LEGO has been releasing a great number of sets designed on the 1:1 scale. For instance, both 21327 Typewriter and 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar look just like the real things when placed on bookshelf in a living room. Although Hedwig is still a far cry from a real snowy owl (which measures more than 27″/70 cm), the rest of the Hogwarts Icons seem to be pretty close to the 1:1 scale.
The letter to Hogwarts is built with three printed 1×16 tiles in tan. As the first line is blank, you may enroll yourself with a pen.
The complete combination measures 17.5in/44cm high, 19.5in/50cm wide, and 13in/33cm deep.
