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...

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?

While Harry hated his time there, the home was an integral part of the story and some of the most memorable scenes happened there (poor aunt Marge). As result, 4 Privet drive has both been released as an official set and been built by many fans as well, as we shall look at here.
