The magic is building...

The Harry Potter teaser microsite is up at LEGO.com! There's not much there yet except for 30 boxes: one showing Harry and the other 29 blank. I imagine one will be revealed every day for the next month, when perhaps the proper site is launched.

Thanks to louie, chazz and refriedbeans for alerting us to this!

It's pretty good for a microsite. Better then the Indy one.

The next person is obviously Hagrid.. Are the wands the new short stick? I hope so..

The site looks like it's going to be pretty cool. The 5th row down looks like micro figures from the LEGO games.

By in United States,

The new dementors are going to be so friggin cool!!!

Does anyone know when the website will be offically launched? It may be at the end of month, like Huw said.

The new sets have lost a lot of their charm. Well maybe that's because when I bought the originals I was still pretty young... but somehow I also have the feeling that the pieces aren't nearly as 'unique'! Lego now likes to use those poopy old stickers for everything!

I can't even see the micro site on their website...?

Not 30 new sets but it could be close to 30 new minifigs, although that sounds a bit high.

Gravatar

25 of the "boxes" are for different minifigs. The other five of them are for microfigs.

My boys can't wait for the Lego HP video game to come out. Everyday they ask me if today is the day we can get it. I think the Hogwart's Challenge game looks cute too; who wouldn't want a microfig Harry?

whats the big deal? ITS BOXES WITH MINIFIGS. whats so great about that? then again im no fan of HP, and im not pirticulary fond of kids playing,''whitchcraft related" stuff.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whats a microset? Is that just the figure?

@itsaturkey and bricks-and-bits:
The HP line has a lot of fans and has been one of LEGO's most solid lines. Though I am not a Harry Potter fan and don't plan on getting any of the sets, I do appreciate that there are people whose tastes are different than mine and who will enjoy these new sets. It is childish to post that the HP sets "suck" or are "stupid". Let those who want to look forward to the new sets do so without degrading comments.

crzypainter- i cincerly apoligize if i offended anyone. i was not intending to cause offense i was simply trying to stat that i didn't understand why people were saying this is the best micro site ever, as there si nothing on the site but boxes with minifigs. i did not mean to,''burst any bubbles".
p.s. well i am a kid, so it would make sense if i didn't say somthing,''childish" which i didn't.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

if you are refering to me itsaturkey, i just mean that it is a creative way to introduce the line. and if you think about it a guy in a bat suit or a guy who shoots webs is more childish then a guy from a best selling author.....

Don't get me wrong, I'm as eager about the new Harry Potter sets as the next guy, but I'm not sure I'm seeing the appeal of this microsite. Maybe if they were instead revealing LEGO versions of notable scenes from the books/films, that'd be simply glorious and an excellent way to preview the line, but as it is... nope, not seeing it.

On another note, I really don't like how they're giving the Hogwarts uniforms black legs this time around; the grey of the Prisoner of Azkaban sets was a superior approach. I'd be okay with, say, grey legs on a black waistband though. Hagrid's new torso print, on the other hand, looks excellent.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They just posted another one-Hagrid. Can't wait to see them all, though it's not hard to guess which figure they'll show because of the outlines.

By in United States,

I've seen posts about microsites before, but never bothered checking them out -- even for themes I'm interested in. I did this time.

When the first round of Harry Potter sets came out I was mixed up in a Christian religion that frowned upon Harry Potter. I somehow convinced myself that it would be okay to buy a set as long as I didn't put it together.

Even after leaving those religious ideas behind I still had no interest in reading the books. My only link to HP was through that one Lego set. Or at least the parts to that one Lego set.

But without any strong reason not to read the books and with a copy of the first one laying around the house (my wife checked it out of the Library) I finally gave it a shot. It was great.

And right away I was kicking myself for not buying the sets. The revival of HP Lego is great. I'm going to buy every set the first chance I get.

By the way if this confused anybody the numbers on the bottom of the figures are what set they are in

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wait does this mean that the sets are going to be coming out in about a month? I'm pretty sure they're coming out this October but I'm just wondering.

Gravatar
By in United States,

lego sets have a history of coming out early...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gravatar
By in United States,

OK guys, calm down. Expressing on-topic opinions is fine, in a calm & mature way. But when you start calling other people names & making it personal, we have to step in & start deleting posts.

So, if you feel a very strong need to respond to someone else, take a deep breath & go for a walk before hitting 'return'.

who i just thought of somthing, if lego is releasing HP (bestseller, kids) then maybe they will have narnia legos in the future! after all its a best seller and kids.
DrathMaul- i think its just the summer, and maybe everyones bored and cranky. at least i am LOL.
I like guitars- next month? i thought it was coming out later.
Bodygaurds- yeah thats what i thought, but then that means HP is only in one set.

By in United States,

bodygaurds-oh kinda like they had a couple different Han Solos, thanks for clearing it up.
LOL i thought of somthing, theres HF and HP in one year LOL.
the little yellow short thing (sorry i dont know any HP names :P) looks like that monster whos obssesd with the ring in lord of the rings, and like a yellow Yoda, with a big nose.
one thing i have to say, even though im not a fan, i am glad lego made lego HP cuz if im right lego made like 100 new peices good for MOCing with HP.

By in United States,

With the WWoHP theme park in June... The LEGO HP games June/July... The LEGO HP sets this Fall (hopefully earlier)... and the HP&DH PT1 movie this Nov/winter... what another great year for HP. Let's hope JK is still planning on that 8th HP encyclopedia.

Well, if you add up all of the mini-fig characters, 'old' (with new outfits/designs) and new, plus the micro-figs, there's 30+ for the countdown calendar; plenty. It's not too shocking the character design of the pictures is in the same look/feel as the LEGO HP games by TT since they're the company that inspired LEGO to come back out with NEW HP LEGO sets... all of the new designs (Aragog, Ford Anglia, et cetera can all be found in the new LEGO game).

I'm hoping the LEGO game and sets sell well so we get more. I will be buying all of them in one go! Cannot wait to build'em and play the DS (this one even has Peeves as an exclusive playable character!) and PS3 LEGO games. I think all of the sets have been sensational, old and new and still hold the same charm.

Kudos to UKVer2.0 for reading the book! I hope that set was finally opened... that's some will power. =D

That new death eater looks great! Can't wait to get it.

I can see the dementor now. It's below Hagrid so perhaps they're not going to do them in order.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

OOH dementor looks better then the last one (apart from the STAP base?)

Gravatar
By in United States,

First Harry, Then Hagrid, Then Dementor, Then WHO?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I think they are just showing different characters from different set not characters from the same set
