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...

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?

Hogwarts Students

A new minifigure pack, first revealed by Brickset a few days ago, is now showing up on LEGO's website. It is part of a series of minifigure packs LEGO started releasing last year, each containing four minifigures and a small build. It is great to see them extend this series with a Harry Potter themed one, and in particular that they have included a figure from each of the four Hogwarts houses. Here is what you get...

Harry Potter Brickheadz to return in 2020?

Already back in mid 2019, it was announced that after a relatively quiet 2019 for Brickheadz, the funko-pop style figures that was a major LEGO line in 2018, would return in 2020 with more releases. It was also noted that it would include licensed figures. As LEGO already has an active licence for Harry Potter LEGO, it would be obvious for them here in 2020 to add to the three sets we got in 2018. But which?
