Massive LEGO “Harry Potter” Wizard Chess Set Rumored to Be Released This Year
It’s been a good year so far for LEGO fans. The Hogwarts Moments classroom sets became available for purchase in early March, a soundtrack was released to which fans can build the latest Harry Potter wall art set, and to top it off, there are some pretty exciting rumors doing the rounds regarding the LEGO Harry Potter sets that might or might not drop this summer in celebration of the series’ 20-year anniversary. Now, there’s yet another rumor doing the rounds, and this one’s going to leave you wanting to empty your Gringotts vault right this second. Yes, it’s that good (and we really hope this rumor proves to be true).
Brace yourself (and your bank account), because the latest rumor going around is that a massive new LEGO Harry Potter wizard chess set is coming your way later this year. According to Instagram user lego_fulcrum, set number 76391 will be based on the scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where Harry, Ron, and Hermione play a dangerous game of wizard chess in order to get to the stone in time.
If buying the recently released sets left you pretty broke, you should start saving up, because the same Instagram user reported that this new set will cost $249.99. If that’s really what the price tag’s going to be, it’s fair to assume that the set will include pretty much everything from that scene, so we can probably expect to get the entire chess set with its surroundings. New minifigures are not likely to be included here since the only characters present in this scene were the golden trio.
It would be pretty exciting if this rumor turns out to be true, but the LEGO Group hasn’t said anything about it yet, so for now, we’ll wait, but we’ll be the first to let you know if it gets confirmed.
Are you excited about this new rumored set? Do you think it’s true? Let us know in the comments.
