LEGO Harry Potter 76406 Hungarian Horntail Dragon [Review]

The summer 2022 Harry Potter wave includes one more display-oriented set, 76406 Hungarian Horntail Dragon. This is the third in what seems to be a series of large(er)-scale winged, flapping creature builds from the Harry Potter theme, following Hedwig the owl and Fawkes the phoenix. Of course, those models were of much smaller creatures, closer to 1:2 or 1:4 in scale. This build roughly matches the first two in size, so the scale is much smaller. Here’s our review of the set, which contains 671 pieces and 1 minifigure, and is available now for US $49.99 | CAN $64.99 | UK £44.99.

This set is based on a license The LEGO Group has with the Warner Brothers films, not J.K. Rowling directly. The transphobic views expressed by Rowling do not reflect the values of The Brothers Brick or, indeed, those of The LEGO Group. The magical world Rowling created, in which many who felt a bit different could see themselves, meant a great deal to so many people, including those that Rowling now demeans. TBB affirms each individual LEGO fan’s choice to claim a piece of the world for themselves, or to reject it entirely.

The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.

Harry Potter versus Hannah the Hungarian Horntail

Whatever happened to the fearsome Hungarian Horntail dragon as seen in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire? LEGO builder Force of Bricks suggests the dragon eventually made its way onto the trophy wall.

This is an incredible model. I’m always in awe of how well builders like Force of Bricks can craft such genuine angles and detail in creatures. The open jaw looks like it’s ready to chomp down on a minifigure. The spikes along the head and neck look deadly and fearsome. And I love the detail on the wall mount, giving a little gold glitter to set this dragon apart as a true trophy.
