Almost every year since 2018, there has been a polybag released, giving us a minifigure along with a small build. While it is not surprising to get one again here in 2023, the reveal is interesting though, as it does open up for building a Ravenclaw Quidditch team without breaking the bank. Here’s what we know…
Every year since 2018 – apart from 2019 (they might not have realised how well the Harry Potter sets would sell following the comeback of the theme in 2018 to have something lined up) – we have seen a LEGO Harry Potter polybag revealed. Here is the list:
- 2018 – Harry’s Journey to Hogwarts (Polybag 30407) (good match with Hogwarts Express)
- 2020 – Harry Potter and Hedwig: Owl Delivery (Polybag 30420)
- 2021 – Hermione’s Study Desk (Polybag 30392)
- 2022 – Build your own Hogwarts Castle (Polybag 30435)
We now know what the 2023 polybag looks like, thanks (once again this year) to the German LEGO Retailer JB Spielwaren. This is set 30651 Quiddictch Practice and as seen below, it features Cho Chang in her Rawenclaw Quidditch uniform chasing the snitch above the Quidditch pitch.
The pitch is like the Hogwarts Castle in last year’s polybag built in micro-scale. But if you squint your eyes, you can see this as a forced perspective setup, with Cho being high above the ground.
Both Cho and the snitch seems to be on a rotating plate, so she can chase it around.
I like the colours of the model – and the fact that this would be a financially viable way to get a full Ravenclaw Quidditch team. But unlike the last two years, we have no collectable chocolate card tiles included. What do you think of this year’s model?
I better get back to my reviews – so I’ll be back soon.
Till then, Build the Magic!
