Ron Weasley had six siblings but apart from Ron himself, only three of them (Fred, George and Ginny) have been made into LEGO characters. I've previously discussed how to build your own Percy, and here follows how you can build your own Bill Weasley...
Make your own Gilderoy Lockhart
JK Rowling has created some truly amazing characters in the Harry Potter universe.
