Hogwarts Great Hall

©2018 LEGO Group

As has been heavily rumored, the LEGO Harry Potter theme is making a comeback this year and the largest of the retail sets, 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall, has been revealed ahead of New York Toy Fair.

The 878-piece set contains ten minifigures, including five first year students with short legs: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy and Susan Bones - a Hufflepuff student who will be represented in minifig form for the first time, and indeed will be representing her house for the first time in a LEGO set.

It'll be available on August 1st for $99.99. Another of the four retail sets that will be released at the same time is mentioned in the press release, 75953 Whomping Willow. If rumors are to be believed, there'll be a direct-to-consumer set as well.

You'll find product information and more images after the break.

Looking good! Not really UCS quality, but a fun looking play set. Interesting use of short legs for the kids. Is that Dumbledore supposed to be the original actor? I spy new want pieces too!

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

Mouthwatering... :)

And it indeed does have the pin slots on the other side! So the connectivity with the D2C castle/ other future sets from the theme is real :)

Can't wait.

Mixed opinions... Exterior of the set looks great, particularly the hall.

The tower is a little generic but the top of the tower is an interesting build - interior could do with some work. Basilisk i expected to get an update but a little disappointed that it is so small and unfinished with all the exposed studs - i think they were going for mini-figure scale but it needs a bit of a rework.

Hagrid looks really weird - may just stick to using the previous version of Hagrid

Gravatar
By in United States,

Those battleship pegs they use for candles are interesting. The color scheme feels much more cohesive and the structure much more solid than previous versions. Also we get a new rat and a purpose molded sorting hat!

At first I thought, Wow, that is actually a decent price for that set! ... and then I saw the backside and realized it's once more just half a set. So in keeping with the old tradition, they charge double of what I would consider fair. I should have known, now I feel foolish.
Looks good though, just a little small to fit in with my modulars. Still curious for that megabucks Hogwarts set.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Wow!
Love all of this.
Undecided on the short legs tho.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Does that mean that the rumored 71043 D2C Hogwarts Castle won’t be released?

Gravatar
By in Poland,

This might actually be the first time I ever get a complete theme of sets. I woke up from my DA when LOTR and HP lines were almost over...

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Again, I'm happy because I missed the old HP sets, but given that I plan to buy less LEGO it is not that good that the rumours are true. Seems like the mega set will be coming as well... There goes my money.

Wait, just read on the comment above that a wall is missing in the back? Then it will be a no from me, sorry. I stopped buying the Creator houses due to that problem too. For me a building needs to have four walls.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's like everyone went to the hair salon!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I will then start saving money for all of this! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yippee! So psyched. I have the 2010 HP sets, but will definitely get the new range as well if they all look like this. That fat tower is very nice looking, and I really like the color scheme and plethora of mini-figs. Can't wait to see the larger set...

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Yihaa! Hagrid looks ridiculous! Ahh! I HAVE BEEN WAITING! I do think they should have added more rocks but I don’t care that much. ITS HARRY POTTER! Maybe I should just chill a bit but I am going INSANE! I have waited for over 6 years! I so hope a big D2C set will come! LEGO, TAKE MY MONEY!!!
EDIT: Susan Bones? That’s a weird choice, no Snape I see. I hope he is in the whomping willow set. I do think Ron is not ginger enough, it almost looks like he got brown hair. I LOVE all the new pieces! The candles, Scabbers, Hagrids hair, Dumbledore hair, Hagrids lantern etc.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

New mouse mold I see?

Gravatar
By in United States,

No more sand green I suppose. That color defined HP sets for the first several years.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I say Bravo to Lego for keeping this set at the $100 mark, meaning they will be selling a lot more of these. Sure it has some basic build technique, nothing to fancy, but honestly I really like it!

Gravatar
By in United States,

YEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm trying to find a Harry Potter line worthy of this moment! Until I find one...
"Mischief Managed!"

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm just here for the candles.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Having Susan Bones in the set means everyone who has wanted a Hufflepuff character finally gets their wish.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Wow. Wow and wow.
I would love to know more about why this, why now.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Looks like to include a new printed sorting hat.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Not a Harry Potter fan but I was hoping for the UCS sized castle...this set just doesn't seem to have that wow factor to me.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

well this look a lot better then any of the old HP set's.
looking forward to getting this.
and i will be getting it.
saying all that i dont see Fawkes in any of the images.

edit: Oh and that year one..... :) little harry Potter!!!!!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

So many new pieces!!
>No sand green roofs
Noooooooo

Also thats a rat. Mouse comes in the minifigures with elephant.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Are we to take this as a 'reboot' of sorts, with them starting at the beginning and working through the films, or just a limited collection of releases in one go?

Lots of new pieces - lantern, candle flames, wands, sorting hat, hermione hair, harry hair, Dumbledore hair, Hagrid hair and body (looks like short legs insert into the main body?), mouse might be a recolour of the series 18 cmf accessory - but where's Fawkes (mentioned in the description).

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

OH MY GOD A HUFFLEPUFF, THE DAY HAS ARRIVED. WE ARE BLESSED.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

@Covi no, it’s not a new printing, it’s a whole new mold! Amazing!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not seeing Fawkes in those pictures...

Gravatar
By in United States,

HP sets were during my dark ages. Glad to see them return!

Gravatar
By in Austria,

What the hell is a Hufflepuff?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Hufflepuff rep, I love it!! Anyone notice McGonagall has two heads?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

... that's it? The last Hogwarts Castle release had a tonne of minifigs and three sides of the castle (which is two more sides than here).

Lots of new pieces, but I'm pretty underwhelmed. I guess as the line goes on, they'll release more parts of the castle? That seems an awfully expensive way of doing things.

Pass. Easy pass.

Gravatar
By in United States,

LEGO is killing me with all of these great sets with cross theme appeal! I'm not a fan of Harry Potter at all, in fact I refer to all the movies as Barry Pooper and the Magic S*#^ Mitt (apologies to all HP fans, no disrespect intended). However, just like with 76108 I can see so much city potential for this set, such as a the beginning of a proper Cathedral. Although, not sure how God would feel about me turning a witches' school into a church... at least it's not the other way around though, He'd probably be less keen on that. Anyways, much to look forward to, blasphemy and building in the months ahead (again no disrespect intended, I am in fact a Christian with a very odd sense of humor).

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zordboy: Word is that this will connect to the D2C castle.

A release date of August 1st? That's a long time to wait...

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

Another expensive half building set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It's back... I am quite pleased! I may have to get this set in the hopes that they make more Hogwarts sets so I can connect them all!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

That looks like great value for $100. I'd assumed the piece-count was higher though so maybe it'll look smaller in real life.

Gravatar
By in United States,

BEEN WAITING!! Day one purchase

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are those black 2x2 window latice pieces new?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks great. I'd love to see Fawkes. Too bad there isn't a Ravenclaw, but this looks like they're focusing on earlier books.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I'm not a fan of Harry Potter (haven't seen any of the movies YET), but I'm very happy for all fans and the great decision from LEGO to let such a strong franchise return! Looks promising.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

No Sand Green........ Wipes Tear From Eye ;{ .....

Gravatar
By in United States,

While I'm glad to see some HP sets again.. I'm afraid that this is LEGO's response to the end of Nexo Knights. Which would mean no real castle sets :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

I agree, the set really needs some sand green as the dark grey roof is really too much / strong. Takes away from an otherwise okay / decent set.

At least the price is nice.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Aaaahhh! Why does this have to come out when I have no money! I want it so bad. I have the old Prisoner of Azkaban Hogwarts but it sucks compared to this and the last one.

Gravatar
By in United States,

omigod... I can't wait for this! AHHHHHHH

Gravatar
By in United States,

@hewhocaves
I think this has to do with HP's strong fan base and the fact that original retired HP Lego sets are selling for 10 times retail price... and has very little to do with Nexo Knights ending. There is also a RUMORED d2c Hogwarts Castle that will retail for $500. If true, it would be more real than any previous Lego castle.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The fact that it’s called the “Great Hall” and the presence of Technic holes on the end lead me to believe that you will be able to combine multiple sets to make a larger Hogwarts Castle.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This is epic, wow and so many minifigs, love the whole structure and inner detail..

It's better than carling..
Looking forward to seeing more of the HP sets.

Gravatar
By in Finland,

Is it just me or does the "great" hall look a little... vertically short? The tower looks a little weird too in my opinion so I'll probably pass.
I wonder if this going to be connectable to 71043 set, as it is supposedly a castle as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nice looking set. Will definitely be getting this line. Though I will admit the basilisk looks like road kill

Gravatar
By in United States,

Even with no interest in this theme I can appreciate this beautiful set. It can fit into any medieval display and the dining area (beer hall?) has so much to offer. 10 figures is a nice bounty for a $100 set (I’m looking at you SW).

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Great to have this line again. I never bought in to the previous sets. I'm not overwhelmed by this particular set, but will reserve judgement until all have been released.

Will be interesting to see if my kids would like this. They were really into the first 2-3 books and movies, we read and watched them together. But then we all realized what a whiny and disrespectful prat he actually was and it lost most of the imaginative appeal :-) The kids still like elements of the stories though, mostly the different spells and prank sweets. Lets's see if ey are still interested in re-enacting the scenes and create their own versions.

It feels like we are seeing a ton of new parts in 2017/2018. I wonder if TLG are increasing the number of different parts (elements x colors & prints) they are holding in stock. I haven't noticed many parts dissapearing from the roster.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is even better than I expected it to be! Looks like a beautiful set and it gives me a lot of hope for the other sets. The price is excellent as well. $100 for about 900 pieces, 10 minfigures, and it's a licensed set? That isn't bad at all.

I don't see why so many people are disappointed there's no back wall. No other Hogwarts has been enclosed on the back, Disney Castle's open on the back, all City building's are open on the back, really the only sets that are enclosed on the back are Modulars and the rare D2C set such as the GB Firehouse or Ninjago City. To expect this set to have been enclosed on the back is rather absurd.

Besides, it's not like you'd be displaying it from behind. It will probably be on a shelf with at least one side facing a wall. Having it open on the back allows for easier play access for kids and allows the set to be the same price while being much bigger in size. Win win.

ALSO: This set does not mean a D2C castle is not coming! Actually the fact that this set is coming pretty much confirms that the D2C rumors are true as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did you see the flame on each candle? Fantastic! Ebay will make a fortune with this new part! We can now light all our birthday candles!!! :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

undecided on this. still holding out for an epic castle at some point, but will be a great purchase for my daughters birthday.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is it just me or is this new hp theme based on the books rather than movies? I like both very much, but I do feel the movies looked very good, and they didn't have to do this. No sand green castle, no green basilisk, what's going on here? Also, I'm glad that the first few sets are based off PS and CoS, but I do hope we get some of the later stuff as well. I'm not saying you have to jump straight to DH, but maybe do what Star Wars does and release sets for every movie every year?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

It's like they heard me complaining about all of the hair pieces that were horrible and have replaced them with some that seem decent enough. I'm happy :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

Don’t forget about the CMF series!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@BrickMotion Agreed. I will not miss that horrible old Harry hairpiece or the Hermione princess hair.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why?

Gravatar
By in United States,

this looks like i am going to lose some money getting this!

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

Looks really good. Let's see the D2C one before making any purchase plans, though ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

That price is so good. I’m surprised it only has 878 pieces - it looks a lot bigger than that. Really hoping there isn’t a D2C because I need my wallet intact!

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

@Teriyaqi - Sadly for your wallet, we already know there is a D2C :)

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

As someone who got back into LEGO just after Harry Potter ended, I'm quite happy to see them returning to it. I'm also glad this is a reasonably affordable set and not another super-huge, super-expensive set that I couldn't justify buying.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Interesting.

Dumbledore is excellent, and McGonagall is OK, though I would have prefered her with dress and leg pieces so that she could be sat down properly but still look more like she does in the films when standing up.

It's interesting to see that the students have short legs. I can understand why, but as someone who has had access to the original Harry Potter Lego for a long time, I'm used to all of them with long legs and can't say I like the short legs being introduced now.

Hagrid isn't bad, but I think I prefer the original.

I'm also used to the green roofs, so not having them is rather weird.

The hall itself is good, especially the candles, but it would have been nice if it had two sides that could be opened up.

I am annoyed about the hairpieces for the students, though. The old ones were not perfect, but my nostalgia cannot bear the new ones. Ron's looks like it would go better in the Goblet of Fire when they had absurdly long hair. Harry's is OK for how he is described in the books, but I'm too used to the old one.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A few interesting things to notice in this set.

1. This is a mixture of the first two books with Quirell, the philosopher stone, the mirror of Erised (from HP&TPS) but also the Basilisk (from HP&TCoS)

2. They finally made specialised moulds for the wands instead of just using the light sabre pieces in reddish brown

3. The pin holes on the great hall suggest a modularity of some sort, hopefully that means other sets can attach to it to create some sort of super Hogwarts set. This one by itself looks a little underwhelming.

4. It mentions a buildable Fawkes but I'm not seeing it in the pictures. Am I blind?

I'm leaning towards getting this when it comes out, especially now that my daughter is getting quite keen on the HP series...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Mine, mine, and mine!!! Where’s the pic of Fawkes???

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

New wands! New candles with new flames! Sorting hat mold! Are those bricks with the volutes new too? The basilisk looks a bit crap but I hold hopes for their Fawkes!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ah, but are all the wands different? And do I spot a yellow frog?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why does Susan Bones have to look so much like Ginny? At least the torso should be a custom design.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really like this set except I'm not a huge fan of the color selection for the basalisk. Hope they release older versions of harry, hermione, ron etc. In the other sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

My first impression is that the proportions are wrong. It looks like only the upper part of a larger building - with a higher ceiling and larger windows. I'll wait until the D2D comes out before deciding whether to buy it or not.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YESYESYESYES!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oh come on! Anyone else not really into HP or its relatives but find themselves inexplicably compelled to buy the sets? They always look astonishing and this is the best yet!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just finished reading the Sorcerer's Stone a couple days ago, so you can imagine I'm ecstatic for this set!
What stood out to me is Harry's new hairpiece
hagrid, Dumbledore,
Quirell's turban, Scabbers, and Hermione! Also mcgonagall, Nearly headless Nick, and others! I have to pick this up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is what, the 6th Hogwarts Castle set? Ok ok this is just the Great Hall but still ... Hmmm well regardless I'm looking forward to seeing the other sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looking very nice! I wasn’t sure what to think about the reappearance of Harry Potter, but if all the sets hold up to the same standard as this one, this could end up as a very nice theme.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Glad I have the old sets. This actually doesn't impress me as much for the most part. It's at the very least a good figure and parts pack though, and I'm sure those that missed out on the retired sets will be ecstatic. I hope the theme is ongoing and they continue to do bigger and better sets. Hard to go wrong with Harry Potter; it's sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks amazing!!! I can’t wait for these sets I really hope the D2C Hogwarts Castle comes with a ton more minifigures. The pictures don’t show Fawkes though but he’s in the description. Hope he looks good. I have to say that basilisk is horrendous. That’s the one negative I have for this set. Yeah I had hoped it would be more UCS sized and not be half open but I would rather get great minifigures honestly. It looks amazing except for that awful basilisk. I’m super excited for this and the other sets and CMF series

Gravatar
By in United States,

Also, if I’m going to display it, I might have to make my own little triple spire off the side of the biggest tower where Dumbledore’s office should be.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This has to be the worst and most disappointing Harry Potter set I have seen in my entire life. It just looks like a chappy junior set. The mini figures look like they have come from mighty micro sets. They don't even have capes and the short legs are completely out of place. They have the wrong hair and everything. This is such a disappointment. The basilisk should be green and way larger. It seems the people who made this didn't bother watching the films or reading the books. While looking at this set I dread to think what the Fantastic Beast sets will look like. I hope Lego fire these designers and replace them. I could go on forever about this horrifying disaster. It is weird to think that sets that came out long ago are better than this garbage. If anyone from Lego is reading this then thanks a lot for murdering the Harry Potter theme.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

As much as I like the colour sand green, I am very happy that this new version doesn't have a sand green roof, as that to me was always the most awkward looking bit about the old Hogwarts sets. Why should it be sand green anyway? All the images I know of Hogwarts show a roof that looks more or less perfectly dark bluish grey. The new version seems spot on to me in terms of colour choice.

And about the short legs? Really like those too. Remember how small/young those kids very in the first year? Fits perfectly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

HUFFLEPUFF SCHOOL UNIFORM, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

A must-have, no question.
Usually, 100 bricks = $10 so this falls slightly short of 1000 bricks but does have a lot of mini-figs.

I do miss the older grey castle bricks and especially the 'Harry Potter' green, but these will go nicely with the later releases. The 3rd iteration of the Great Hall and Gryffindor Tower, gonna be a lot of Halls at my Hogwarts!

I do detect some applied stickers on the tower... hmmmm. But seriously, the set and images made me SMILE big, so I'm happy and can't wait to put together. Love the bay window (wish there was some stain-glass), Hagrid's umbrella and lantern, Hermione's potion, Dumbly-dore's new robes and could it be?, a Hufflepuff outfit!! Come'on Ravenclaw!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The only part of this set that isn't really working for me is the Basilisk. It just doesn't belong in the great hall. Otherwise, great architecture, great parts, great minifigures. I love that we finally have a Hufflepuff, and Nearly Headless Nick is an excellent choice. Can't wait to see how Fawkes is done as a brick-built figure!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I'm sure I'm the minority here, but as I'm not much of a Harry Potter fan, this would nonetheless be a great starter for a town Church.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I have been waiting for this moment!!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Looks good but to be honest a lot like a remake of the old one but with a slightly fatter tower. The basic structure is the same. The original is still better. And this won’t combine nicely with the old because there is no sand green on it,

Gravatar
By in Germany,

It is a yes from me. Just happend to have reread the last book in 2017.
Pros:
Overall design
I like the Mfs esp. Hagrid and Nearly Headless Nick.
Not so shure about the short legs though.
Price seems fair.

Cons:
Stickers

Alohomora for the LEGO Harry Potter D2C Set :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm honestly impressed which is surprising because I'm not even a Harry Potter fan. With that retail price at about $100, it would make an excellent purchase when it goes on sale. I wish they would make classic castle sets kinda like this again some day.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is everything I expected it to be.

BUT

If the D2C has the same scale it will be almost exactly accurate architecturally, given the relative size of this set. I mean, 900 parts in this and it is good sized, imagine 4500 minus Great Hall, which is the largest part of the movie version.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I guess I'm the only one who is not a fan of the half-smooth/half-studded roof on the big tower.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks like it should be labeled Lego Juniors. Such large pieces... This would be better as a higher piece count and more detailed set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited right now!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Basilisk looks a little odd to me, but this may be my favourite set (based on what I've seen) of the year so far.

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

I'm dying of happiness

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was hoping for a large, $500 set, but this is amazing, especially for the figures.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it'd be cool if each set was dedicated to a year.... This one is first year, whomping willow could be second or third (it's more important in three but more memorable from two). Then the next wave (fall or winter or something) is years five through eight! Just an idea but we can hope.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If a picture of Fawkes isn't added soon, I think I might burst into flames! ;o)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm not the most dedicated fan of Harry Potter but I'm thinking I need to get these sets. They're drawing me in with their magical spells and fantastic minifigures. It's like TLG have cast trificus totalus on me and just taken my wallet!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great looking set! Loving the minifigures and the potential for expanding with the coming sets! As much as I like sand green, I am happy to see a more accurate dark bley for the roof. It will also make it much easier/cheaper to source parts to expand. Day 1 purchase for sure!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks like we are going to get all the missing scenes and figures in this reboot. To start with, Hogwarts Castle with figures from Episode 1 and Whomping Willows. The inclusion of a Basilisk still confounded me. It wasn't supposed to appear until Episode 2, is it? Perhaps this set is a hybrid?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can’t find The Fawkes figure in the image,otherwise I see lots of good new parts!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wands!!!!!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

When are we going to get an new hair piece for Minerva McGonagall???

Gravatar
By in Hungary,

At last they use short legs for children! I never understood the tall 1st year students.

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

All those saying this looks like a Juniors set - have you ever seen a LEGO Castle set? All except the D2C Medieval Market Village and Joust feature huge numbers of specialized panels. I own the previous HP Hogwarts and it too had panels. Do educate yourselves a bit.

Also, why the whining about short legs? These are kids, and kids are represented with short legs.

Gravatar
By in Slovenia,

When will Lego produce a decent round roof pieces? Not one piece panel but set of round slopes in all sizes needed? Probaly never, to costly as many different is needed.
Maybe this is good as we need to be creative to make round roofs.

Gravatar
By in Israel,

The price is excellent
I figured it was supposed to come out another 2 models right?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is a day one buy for me. I'm heading off for college around the time it comes out, it'll make a great dresser topper!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

It looks magnificent. And the price is acceptable. Can't wait. My guess is that you can connect all the sets to make one GIANT HOGWARTS. (Technic holes are visible on the side of the great hall)

Gravatar
By in United States,

At the NYTF display of this set there are new 1x1 arch pieces used to form the short wall around the entrance. This differs from these official images in which 1x1 bricks are used.

I think it would have made much more sense to have the Troll instead of the Basilisk, especially when Ginny Weasley is not in the set. This way we could play the scene "trooooool in the dungeons" with Quirrel, since everything's else is pretty much first movie/book related.

The D2C Hogwarts Castle HAS to have Fluffy, the Troll, Buckbeak, and the Hungarian Horntail. Plus a ton of other minifigures of course like all the teachers and several students as well as Peeves, ghosts, Dementors, some Order members and Death Eaters. I don’t think that’s too much to ask especially if the rumored price of $500 is accurate. I will be very upset if we don’t at least get Sirius Black and Mad-Eye Moody. I love this variation of the Richard Harris Dumbledore, but I would also love an updated version of Michael Gambon’s Dumbledore. It would also be nice if they could somehow include each Horcrux. I have a feeling this set is merely a glimpse of what we’ll get in the others, especially the big one and the CMF series. Extremely pumped for all of these and I already know I will buy them all.

I’m kinda shocked that images of the rest of the sets haven’t been leaked yet. I’m eagerly awaiting those leaks because we all know Lego doesn’t like to share with the class. I hope we get all the leaked pictures soon and a real list of CMF
