Hogwarts Students

A new minifigure pack, first revealed by Brickset a few days ago, is now showing up on LEGO's website. It is part of a series of minifigure packs LEGO started releasing last year, each containing four minifigures and a small build. It is great to see them extend this series with a Harry Potter themed one, and in particular that they have included a figure from each of the four Hogwarts houses. Here is what you get...

REVIEW: Hermione Granger Brickheadz

Following from my recent review of Harry Potter and Hedwig, this post reviews another Brickheadz figure from the Harry Potter universe: Hermione Granger. Together with Harry and Ron, Hermione makes up the "trio" and it is hard to imagine a display series of Harry Potter figures not including all three of them.

As LEGO states in their press release: "discover the entrance to The Room of Requirement, lure Professor Umbridge to the Forbidden Forest, gatecrash the Ravenclaw dormitory and explore the Hogwarts Astronomy Tower.

REVIEW: Quidditch Match

Quidditch plays an important role throughout the Harry Potter series, so it is not surprising to see that in the 2018 line of sets. Being a couple of years old, and with the 2020 Harry Potter sets expected to hit the shelves mid year, it will soon be in line for retirement. So is it worth chasing up the set? Here's my review of the set...
