Find magic in this LEGO version of Dumbledore’s office

Two years after making a LEGO recreation of the Gryffindor Common Room from Harry Potter, Hans Dendauw is back with a fun, detailed version of Professor Dumbledore’s office. Both builds are constructed in the style of the current line of Harry Potter sets, and I would happily purchase them. The books and the carpet really tie the room together along with the twin curved staircases. There are some fun elements lurking around, like The Monster Book of Monsters from The Chamber of Secrets in the lower right and the Niffler from the Fantastic Beasts films, perched on top of one of the many bookshelves. I can’t wait to see what Hans will come up with next.

11/12 Grimmauld Place – transforming Harry Potter build

Accio Harry Potter fans! This Harry Potter LEGO creation from Alan McMorran is a delight. Alan takes Grimmauld Place, featured as a transforming house in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and expertly reworks the design to fit between Assembly Square and Pet Shop. It really does belong on this street from the dog sitting by the door to the exposed bricks to the white windows. When attention is drawn to the top of the building one starts to suspect that something’s a little…magical about this place. The windows look medieval and the color shifts to a somber combination of black and gray.

The model is great, but this is where it truly becomes remarkable. The building can be transformed from 11 Grimmauld Place into 12 Grimmauld Place. Watch the transformation here.

The Hogwarts Entrance Hall to rule all entrance halls

Have you ever had that friend who you try to act all cool around, but who’s definitely much cooler and more talented than you? Well, I have a few, actually, but when it comes to LEGO Harry Potter, there is only one true master. Eric Law has awed and inspired many times over with his dazzling and ginormous recreations of the Wizarding World. This time, he brings us an exceptional model of the Hogwarts Entrance Hall. There is so much going on here, it’s a little shocking. Dare you to take the time to count all the frames!

“But wait, Bre! Do the stairs actually move?” You bet your Firebolt they do! Here is a short snippet GIF, but you should definitely check out the full video on Eric’s Instagram page.

Can’t get enough Harry Potter builds? We have you covered!

LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter 40495: Harry, Hermione, Ron and Hagrid [Review]

We have already had BrickHeadz of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Hagrid all at the standard size, but LEGO has decided that we didn’t have enough Harry Potter. So they came out with this new version of Hagrid with the three most famous first years in Hogwarts’ recent history. What might not be clear at first glance is that these kids are not built on the 4×4 main character standard but rather on the smaller 3×3 buddy standard. This helps to maintain the proper scale when they gather around the lovable groundskeeper, Rubeus Hagrid. The set includes 466 pieces and will be available on June 1, 2021. LEGO has not released pricing information at the time of writing this review, but based on previous BrickHeadz sets with multiple characters, I would guess that the set will be around $24.99 US.

LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter 40496: Voldemort, Nagini and Bellatrix [Review]

If you are a fan of the Harry Potter franchise and a collector of BrickHeadz, you might be scratching your head at the one-sided line-up released so far, which includes the three heroes of the story, along with Dumbledore, Hagrid, Buckbeak, and Newt, but only one villain so far, Gellert Grindelwald. Well, that is about to change. With the upcoming release of a brand new batch of bad guys and girls. That’s right, the most feared villain in history, He Who Must Not Be Named himself, Lord Voldemort, is finally joining the ranks of BrickHeadz along with his snake Nagini and Bellatrix Lestrange. LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter 40496 Voldemort, Nagini, and Bellatrix includes 344 pieces and will be available starting June 1, 2021. LEGO has not released a price or parts count at the time of this review, but based on previous multi-character sets, I’m guessing it will be around $24.99 US.

Potions, potions, potions, everywhere you look

Gayle Spiller shows us she knows how to brew a potion or two with her latest LEGO creation. It depicts Dumbledore and Snape in what I guess is Snape’s classroom. And it looks nothing like the LEGO’s latest 76383 Hogwarts Moment: Potion Class set! Gayle used a mix of techniques to portray stained glass windows. For the window on the left she used the 4-way lug wrench. On the window in the middle she used a net. And for the right window she used a combination of whips, bars and window panes. I love the base with the ingots and the columns with the arches. Having the arches stop half way makes this creation feel like just a small detail of something way bigger. The room is filled with all sorts of bottles and flasks and the absolute best little build has to be the bunsen burner using horns for legs. Which famous potions can you spot?

LEGO Harry Potter 76383 Hogwarts Moment: Potion Class [Review]

The set consists of 271 pieces and comes with three minifigures. The set is available today for US $29.99 | CAN $39.99 | UK £27.99.
