With all the rumours of upcoming Harry Potter sets for 2019, I've closely been following news from the American International Toy Fair in New York.

Back in November, The Toy Association announced the 123 finalists for the 2019 … Continue reading 2018 LEGO Harry Potter sets won three awards.
January and February are exciting months for LEGO lovers. Three major toy fairs worldwide are often used by LEGO to reveal upcoming sets, and last year we indeed saw the new Harry Potter sets during those, for instance as reported in 2018 by Brothers Brick.
