REVIEW – Advent calendar 2 December

Yesterday was a good day when it comes to the Harry Potter LEGO advent calendar. We got a minifigure that had a nice connection to Christmas - Harry wearing the sweater he got from Molly Weasley.

Read on for the review of the 2 December model.

Make your own Rita Skeeter

Everyone hates Dolores Umbridge, period. But there are other villains in Harry Potter, including Voldemort of course.

I made a minifigure of her for my display at Comic-con back in September, but have only now found the time to write a post about it.
