Bubble-head charm

I've been building a series of MOCs lately to cover different scenes from the Goblet of Fire, including the Second Challenge of the Tri-wizard Tournament. The Rescue from the Merpeople set from 2005 gave us contestants Harry Potter and Viktor Krum. The other two contestants, Fleur Delacour and Cedric Diggory were however not included in the set, and both used the bubble-head charm to help them. This is how I added them...

Collectable Wizard Card tiles available on Bricklink

he 20th Anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter sets gave us a new collectable item - the Chocolate Frog Wizard Card tiles, with each set from the theme giving us a number of random tiles. With 16 to collect, you will generally have to resort to swapping or buying extras to get a full set. All 16 tiles are now finally listed on Bricklink, helping you to find potential sellers of the tiles you may be missing. Here are the links...

Instructions for Wizard Card Display Stand

The 2021 mid-year wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets introduced a new collectable item - 2x2 tiles with famous wizards and witches printed on them, representing the wizard cards you get when buying the magical chocolate frogs for example from the trolley lady in the Hogwarts Express. I posted about the display stand I designed for them a few weeks ago, and have since had multiple requests for instructions. So here they are...

Wizarding World Minifigure Accessory Set

Today is 1 June and that means that many new LEGO Harry Potter sets are now officially available from LEGO.com and a number of retailers. I've already reviewed four of those sets, with more reviews to come. But one set I haven't mentioned at all on this blog yet, is the Wizarding World Minifigure Accessory pack. So I better fix that now. Please read on to see what you get.

REVIEW: Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets

It has been no less than 19 years since LEGO last released a Chamber of Secrets set. That was back when the minifigures within the Harry Potter theme still had yellow heads. So it is great news that LEGO has finally made a new version as part of its 20th Anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter series of sets due to hit the shelves in June 2021. LEGO has kindly sent me an advance copy to review. Read on to see what you'll get...

REVIEW: Hogwarts Fluffy Encounter

The mid-2021 wave of Harry Potter sets celebrate the 20th anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter. This includes a set with Fluffy the three headed dog, which in many ways is similar to the Forbidden Corridor set released back in 2001. This is a nice homage to the origin of the theme, but how does it stack up as a set otherwise? Luckily LEGO has sent me an advance copy to review, so read on to see what you'll get...

REVIEW: Hogsmeade Village Visit

Along with Hogwarts and Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade is one of the iconic locations from the Harry Potter universe one would expect to see in a Harry Potter theme park. It is therefore surprising that we haven't seen any sets with Hogsmeade since 2004. Luckily the 2021 wave of sets includes an excellent Hogsmeade set, which I've been sent to review. Here is what you get...
