The boy wizard Harry Potter was introduced to the cinematic world 20 years ago. Warner Bros maybe giving the original film a ‘Magic Mode’ release, Lego are celebrating in their own way too.
They will be LEGO Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Icons Collectors’ Edition, an intricate display model and a perfect homage to the fan-favourite Wizarding World.
The detailed new set follows the adventures of Harry Potter and his friends, capturing some of the most iconic characters and moments in one, single stunning model. The set also includes several famous artefacts found in the Wizarding World over the last two decades.
Sitting proudly at the centre of the set is Harry’s loyal owl, Hedwig™, clutching the infamous Hogwarts letter. Fans will also find Harry’s wand and glasses, a chocolate frog, a potions tray including five potion bottles and ingredients, as well as Tom Riddle’s diary, the Golden Snitch and a school scarf which is customisable to match any Hogwarts House.
The combination lends itself to a striking display of 3010 pieces, measuring over 44cm high, 50cm wide and 33cm deep, and is completed with a bespoke stand and celebratory tile to mark the 20th anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter.
In addition, the set also comes with a trio of exclusive anniversary golden LEGO minifigures, including Albus Dumbledore™, Minerva McGonagall™ and Rubeus Hagrid™, as seen together in the first scene of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Speaking about the set, LEGO Designer Marcos Bessa commented: “The timeless magic of Harry Potter never leaves you, and this new LEGO set is our way of celebrating 20 years of LEGO Harry Potter and the wonderful people and things found in it.”
“Every item in the set is filled with memories, from winning quidditch matches to iconic potion ingredients, not to mention getting that all-important letter. Building the Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition Set is sure to bring fond recollections back for Wizarding World and LEGO fans alike, with this beautiful centrepiece.”
