I've reviewed most of the 2018 and 2019 sets so far on my review page. But there are many awesome sets in the earlier series. This post is my first go at reviewing some of the older Harry Potter sets. As a lot of my own building activity has focused on Diagon Alley shops lately, I've picked one of the early sets depicting one of these: Quality Quidditch Supplies (set 4719) from 2003.

REVIEW: The Rise of Voldemort
Wave 2 of the 2019 LEGO Harry Potter sets should be available in shops from today, 1 August (in most parts of the world). Here I will take a look at the smaller of the two, which covers the graveyard where Harry and Cedric ended up after unknowingly touching a portkey at the end of the third and final challenge of the Tri-wizard Tournament.
