LEGO has officially revealed the entire upcoming wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets, five of which will be available this summer starting June 1st. The sets are based on the third and fourth films in the Harry Potter series, The Prisoner of Azkaban and The Goblet of Fire. As an extra magical bonus, LEGO also revealed a Harry Potter-themed Advent Calendar for this upcoming holiday season, available starting September 1st.
Last week we shared images of three LEGO Harry Potter sets revealed early by Amazon.it, but now we have official photos and details of each set in the summer wave. New sets include the vibrant purple Knight Bus as well as a task from the Triwizard Tournament. Standout details include new pumpkins, a brick-built dragon and metallic golden egg as well as the Yule Ball.
(Spoiler alert: The photos of the LEGO Harry Potter Advent calendar as well as set description revealing its contents are included as the last item in the article. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t scroll all the way to the bottom!)
Three sets from the LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2019 wave have been revealed by Amazon.it, continuing the excitement about the upcoming Wizarding World sets. The sets include the Hogwarts Clock Tower, Hagrid’s Hut, and the Forbidden Forest. Standout features include a brilliant stag patronus, minifigures in Yule Ball outfits and the Hippogriff Buckbeak.
We expect more LEGO Harry Potter sets to be revealed soon. We don’t have piece counts or price estimates yet, but we will update this article as we learn more. [EDIT: Full pictures, prices and availability can be found in our follow-up article.]
Today LEGO has unveiled the flagship playset from this year’s Harry Potter franchise. Consisting of a massive 6,020 pieces, it’s the largest set to be revealed this year and by far the biggest Harry Potter set ever. In fact, it’s the second-largest LEGO set of all time, coming in behind the Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon. The set will be available August 15 for VIP members with a general release on Sept. 1 for $399.99 USD.
The set includes the most complete layout of the Hogwarts castle yet including the Whomping Willow and Hagrid’s Hut, all created in microscale and populated with numerous microfigs of students, teachers, and Dementors, along with Aragog, the Basilisk, and even a Hungarian Horntail. It also includes four minifigures of the Hogwarts house founders: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin, and Rowena Ravenclaw, none of whom have appeared in LEGO form before.
