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 builderĀ 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.

Rescue from the Merpeople

Rescue from the Merpeople was released in 2005, that’s right, 15 years ago! It was a small build but it contained 5 unique figures. It was the first set, and still one of the only sets, containing sleepy faced minifigurs. On top of that LEGO gave us their first mermaid minifigure. Whether or not you think the mermaid is pretty is a matter of taste. In 15 years a lot has changed in the world of LEGO and Caleb Schilling shows us a peek of what the set might look like if LEGO would ever decide to redesign it. I am really fond of the demure use of colour in this creation. The only vibrant colour comes from the vegetation and some of the characters’ outfits. The base is especially well made, showing little to no studs. The skirts on Hermoine and Cho further add to the flowing underwater feel of this creation.
