New “Potter” LEGO Sets Feature the Room of Requirement, Movable Hedwig, and More
We’ve all been spending a little more time with our LEGO sets these days, including Daniel Radcliffe. Thankfully, the LEGO Group has just announced new Harry Potter sets that you can add to your collection starting June 1.
The new sets (many of which were the subject of rumors earlier this year) feature scenes from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Marcos Bessa, the design lead, commented on the new LEGO sets:
Each year we get the chance to re[-]create some of the most action-packed and exciting settings from the films. We hope these new products inspire young builders around the world to believe anything is possible as they act out their own adventures in the [w]izarding [w]orld.
Several of the new sets depict scenes at Hogwarts, including 75966 Hogwarts Room of Requirement, 75969 Hogwarts Astronomy Tower, and 75967 Forbidden Forest: Umbridge’s Encounter. The Astronomy Tower has 971 pieces and looks like a gorgeous mini-Hogwarts. The Room of Requirement has a hidden secret entrance, and Umbridge’s Encounter features a giant Grawp.
75980 Attack on the Burrow is a Target exclusive. The set gives you a look at the Weasleys’ beautiful home before it’s burned down by Death Eaters.
75968 4 Privet Drive depicts Harry’s escape from the Dursleys before his second year.
75979 Hedwig is a Barnes & Noble exclusive. This set allows you to build a large Hedwig and watch her fly. It also comes with Harry and Hedwig minifigures.
