REVIEW: 4 Privet Drive

With the calendar saying August 1, the new LEGO Harry Potter sets are now finally available in North America. The sets are worth the wait though - the ones I've looked at so far have been amazing. Here I take a look at 4 Privet Drive. I have really been looking forward to this one, having built my own model earlier in the year, and I was keen to compare it with the new one. Overall, I've really impressed with the set. Read on to see why...

REVIEW: Hogwarts Students

It was a pleasant surprise when LEGO recently added a Harry Potter themed minifigure pack to their range. Minifigure packs typically include four minifigures - and with four houses at Hogwarts, LEGO opted to give us a student from each of them. While we have seen plenty of Gryffindor students in previous sets, and occasional Slytherins, students from Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff have been mostly ignored. Is this enough to make this pack a must-have? Here is what I think...

REVIEW: Ron Weasley and Albus Dumbledore Brickheadz

While the 2020 sets have started to hit the shelves in some countries, I still got a few of the 2018 sets I never got around to review back then. I'm still hopeful that we get to see more Brickheadz from the Harry Potter universe if not in 2020, then in 2021. But focusing on what we have got, here is my review of the largest of the three Harry Potter themed Brickheadz sets released back in 2018. And it was a pleasant addition to my collection as you will see...

REVIEW: Forbidden Forest – Umbridge’s encounter

In 2018 we got the Aragog’s Lair scene from the Forbidden Forest followed in 2019 by Expecto Patronum, which was also set in the forest. Now the calendar says 2020 and we are fortunately enough to get yet another Forbidden Forest set. This one brings us for the first time in LEGO both centaurs and Hagrid's half-brother Grawp, as well as a return of Professor Umbridge, who otherwise has been hard to get as minifigure. So many positives - but does the set as a whole stack up well?

REVIEW: Room of Requirement

The clock has ticked over to 1 June in this part of the world, which means in many countries the much anticipated new 2020 Harry Potter LEGO sets are now available (North America unfortunately has to wait another couple of months). I was lucky to find a few sets on a shelf early, so here is my first review of the 2020 sets. I've chosen Room of Requirement, which is the smallest of the new sets. Is it a must have set? Read on for the review...

REVIEW: Hermione Granger Brickheadz

Following from my recent review of Harry Potter and Hedwig, this post reviews another Brickheadz figure from the Harry Potter universe: Hermione Granger. Together with Harry and Ron, Hermione makes up the "trio" and it is hard to imagine a display series of Harry Potter figures not including all three of them. But is it a fair representation of Hermione? Read on for my review...

REVIEW: Quidditch Match

Quidditch plays an important role throughout the Harry Potter series, so it is not surprising to see that in the 2018 line of sets. Being a couple of years old, and with the 2020 Harry Potter sets expected to hit the shelves mid year, it will soon be in line for retirement. So is it worth chasing up the set? Here's my review of the set...

REVIEW: The Knight Bus

Certain things from the Harry Potter series are so iconic that they have appeared multiple times as LEGO models already. So when I saw "yet another" Knight Bus being among the 2019 LEGO Harry Potter sets, it was one I though I probably didn't need - having the 2011 version already. But in the end, I found one I could get cheap and couldn't resist the temptation. And actually, I quite liked it...
