A new Harry Potter teaser!

Posted by ,

A banner image has been uploaded to the Elves page on shop.LEGO.com, presumably in error, showing 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall alongside the hitherto unseen 75953 Whomping Willow.

The latter set will include the eponymous Whomping Willow as well as the Flying Ford Anglia, an additional section of Hogwarts Castle and a selection of suitable minifigures. Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Severus Snape, Argus Filch and another unknown pupil are visible in the image but there may be others that we have yet to see.

Are you looking forward to the upcoming Wizarding World sets and which other characters are you hoping to see in minifigure form? Let us know in the comments.

Great pick up!
Screenshotted!

(but why did you cut off the 'Elves' part to the left of that image you posted?)

Excellent! I have a couple of friends who would be extremely impressed by that Ford Anglia. Is there any special meaning associated with the licence plate (7990 TD)?

@Baby Yoda that licence plate was the one used in the movie.

Hoping the student is a Ravenclaw. From what I've seen this is my favourite Harry Potter wave.

> characters are you hoping to see
Buckbeak redesign and any centaur. But I doubt it will come....

Another piece of the castle. When all the new sets also include a piece of it, that would be great!

Great to see another improved version of the Ford Anglia, which has seated two minifigs side by side ever since 2002!

^^ That would be great because ... we'd have to buy all of them? Oookay ...

It's great because we don't have enough LEGO cars.

Is it me, or is that a new wand piece?

It's not new to all the people that saw it when LEGO showed the great hall months before.

If you enlarge the picture it looks like an old Hagrid is standing at the entrance. Also something what looks like an old Harry in the background on the left. Strange?

that new section on the right could be the Whomping Willow set with the gnarly tree fading off on the right hand side. Would be nice if so.

edit: unknown student could be Seamus Finnegan (spiky hair). Hoping for a soot-covered alternative face :)

If you want a good head for Seamus, get Bain from Lake-Town Attack. Although that could very well be Seamus behind Hermione.

I'm really looking forwards to the Whomping Willow set. I've wanted the willow since 2002! Filch's hairpiece looks terrible, but hopefully most people have a few extra old Dumbledore/Gandalf hairs to replace it with.

I'd actually prefer if there was no D2C castle and you could collect parts of a large castle from «smaller» sets, like in the old days.

Having seen some of the minifigure leaks I am certainly optimistic! Can't wait to get these although the wallet will take a bit of a hit...

@thehornedrat - The image would have been an awkward shape with the Elves branding on the left side so we cropped it out.

I can't wait! But my parents will kill me cos I "already have Hogwarts" and the flying car.
I'm really glad they decided to do Hogwarts in sections. Means I don't need to save all year for a super expensive one. Plus I might be able to add it to my Prisoner of Azkaban Hogwarts (although the style is quite different)

Uh-oh, a leak. I look forward to the hilarity of Lego sending threatening take-down letters to themselves.

I would've preferred The Lord of the Rings.

Gravatar

Awesome, that looks great! Can't wait to see all the sets in detail.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I was about to start collecting the Harry Potter minifigs from before, so glad this is happening!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wonder how long now until we see the Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures? I'm hoping there will be pictures soon!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm fine with news sets based on the forthcoming movies but I had kind of hoped the old sets were dead.

Gravatar
By in United States,

On the other hand, it would be nice to get a Professor Quirrell with flesh-toned head and hands. One of the few characters who was only released once, in the early yellow head sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This seems lovely but I am.not looking foward these sets personally but as I said, they look great.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

yes, yes, yesss... you will make me more broke then i already am. Good Job Lego!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cannot wait for these! Is there a release date?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Oh my gosh this is epic! So cool!

Can't wait to see more of this theme, I love Harry Potter and missed out on the 2010 run of sets. These'll be must haves!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Of course the grumpy nansayers need to rain on everyone's parade. Lego makes what, 500 sets a year? I think you'll be covered. Many of us missed out on the Potter sets of old and won't pay 5x to get one, I for one, am drooling over these new sets.

What's the D2C supposed to be, if the smaller sets are providing pieces of Hogwarts? I thought what I heard awhile back was that the D2C was supposed to be a huge Hogwarts?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well there goes my aspirations to get some Blacktron and a UCS MF...

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^ I was wondering the same thing. If the smaller sets combined to make a larger castle, then what is the point of a UCS Hogwarts Castle?

Gravatar
By in United States,

It would be nice to see some PoA minifigs with the Whomping Willow... I'm looking forward to these sets as I must shamefully cheat to make my Hogwarts moc.. As it is what I've built so far is not connected, but I think with these upcoming sets will compliment it nicely, whether I just add in the sets as are or mod them...

Plus there's that CMF line that keeps popping up on Reddit
