REVIEW: Diagon Alley – part 2 (Quidditch shop and Daily Prophet)

I had to do two weeks of mandatory hotel quarantine after returning to my home country from overseas. I was lucky to have the new Diagon Alley delivered to keep me occupied. This is an amazing set - one of those where you wish you can continue building forever, discovering cool details and impressive building techniques all the time. Here is part 2 of my review of this set...

Hogsmeade at winter time???

I normally don't cover new LEGO set announcements, unless they are from the Harry Potter theme. But today I'll make an exception. LEGO has just revealed this year's Winter Village set: Elf Club House. While I might be a must-buy item for my Winter Village collection anyway, when I saw the shape of the building I immediately thought of Hogsmeade. Here are my thoughts...

Huge Diagon Alley LEGO set officially revealed

One of my favourite LEGO Harry Potter sets is Diagon Alley (Set 10217), which was released back in 2011. Today, LEGO has officially revealed much bigger Diagon Alley (Set 75978) - giving us six of the iconic buildings and no less than 14 minifigures to go with it. It is available for sale from tomorrow. While not cheap, it looks stunning and I'm sure it will be a popular set. Let's see closer at what you get...

REVIEW: Hagrid and Buckbeak Brickheadz

The big-headed Funko-pop style figures are extremely popular among pop-culture collectors and since 2016, LEGO has been tapping into that market with its Brickheadz figures. In 2018 we got three sets with characters from the Harry Potter universe, but after that nothing. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to see a new Harry Potter themed Brickheadz set pop up earlier in the month. I've now had the chance to build it. Here are my thoughts...

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...
