Harry Potter at Lego Brand Retail in the UK?

Posted by ,
Hogwarts Castle

Thanks to Brickset member 'Midnight' who has contacted us to say that the Bluewater Lego store is now stocking some of the new Harry Potter sets. Specifically, they currently have #4840 'The Burrow', #4842 'Hogwarts Castle' and #4737 'Quidditch Match' on the shelf; a member of staff said the other sets would go out tomorrow.

We've checked the Milton Keynes store but they say they haven't received them yet; we haven't been able to check if Brighton has them yet.

It was my understanding that no brand retail store sells them before Oct 1st. tsk tsk...

I know this is completely different, but in Israel they have the 4736 Freeing Dobby in stock at TRU (very expensive though).

my payment for my pre-order from lego was processed yesterday, they usually do this right before they ship

Forgot to log in before I sent the message earlier so my name wasn't attached, just my email.
It was me who sent in about the Bluewater store. A staff member actually told me a few weeks back that they would probably have the sets in a little early, I was surprised it was this soon though. They definitely had the three I mentioned, as I have two of them sat here waiting to be built this evening. Can't be sure about the other sets, but a staff member saw me looking at the display and told me they'd have the others in tomorrow.

I'm well chuffed, as I missed out on getting Hogwarts Castle from Tesco by 45 minutes.

On a side note, I love the Bluewater Store, the staff are great. Today one of them even scanned a few Collectible Minifigs for me so I could get the couple I was after!

If I found them in the store in September I'd still wait until October so I can get double VIP points, since that's what the special is for the month

If Argos get them in before 28th September, I'll be over there like the proverbial rat up a drainpipe.

I just got my shipping info from Lego.com (US) as well. I wonder if I can return them at Lego Store (Anaheim) to get double pts for October?

Well, my order from Lego arrived today...2 Hogwarts castles, Hagrid's Hut, Quidditch match and Freeing Dobby. Hogwarts Express shipped separately for some reason. All Christmas presents for the kids!

I've had an email from the Tesco website this evening telling me that the Hogwarts Castle is back in stock, looks like quite a few places have them early now.

I have two of the sets but I think I'm going to wait now and buy the others sometime in October when I can get double points at the Lego store.

Our HP sets just arrived! We had pre-ordered a few weeks ago and they just got here! We're in the US. Fun building this weekend!

Most shops in the UK seems to be releasing the new sets October 1st, i can guess these will sell fast that's why i've pre-orderd my from Lego. Found a blog post about the Harry Potter Lego sets in the UK with links to the products for pre-order http://thegiftarena.co.uk/harry-potter-lego-exclusive.html
