Two new Build Your Own Adventure Books

Posted by ,

Two new Build Your Own Adventure books have been revealed properly during the last few days. These are themed around Harry Potter and Star Wars, with each book containing pieces to build small models along with a minifigure.

LEGO Harry Potter Build Your Own Adventure contains a Harry Potter figure with the Sorting Hat ceremony but can be reassembled to form the entrance to the Gryffindor Common Room. The second book, LEGO Star Wars Build Your Own Adventure: Galactic Missions, includes a Bespin Guard and a Microfighter-style Cloud Car.

You can view that model after the break...

You can already pre-order the Harry Potter book on Amazon.com, costing $14.99.

Have you acquired previous Build Your Own Adventure books and do these interest you? Let us know in the comments.

Very nice. I like the sorting hat

No idea if it's intentional or not, but the sorting hat model feels like a really nice throwback to 4701 Sorting Hat from way back in 2001 - goshdarn LEGO, making me feel nostalgic all of a sudden! https://brickset.com/sets/4701-1/Sorting-Hat

I have bought all of the Star Wars DK titles with exclusive minifigures, but none of the Build Your Own Adventures...until now. I truly love this render of The Cloud Car. It is most reminiscent of the classic red / brown vehicle that followed the classic Cloud City set. Odd that the Pilot from Betrayal At Cloud City is not included (but hear one will be in the 2019 Advent Calendar). This looks like a must buy!

Great news, the Harry Potter one can be a good source of rare parts for MOCs (candles, tan 66º slopes, tan volutes, dark orange bricks w/handle and sand 45º slopes with tile stud). I hope to manage to find at least a couple of them at a good price. I already have the Cinderella Build Your Own Adventure, I bought it mainly for the minidoll and all the golden and lavender pieces.

The chima and ninjago books pieces cracked on most pieces but I did get them cheaper than usual ,the Y-wing build your own book is way better as it's a story and inspiration for other builds so ideal for kids and AFOLs

Love that throwback HP! It is also a really good parts pack! It is also available for pre-order on Amazon right now for only $16.00!

I'll take one of each please! And while I'm at it, I may as well buy all the others! Thanks for the news. I really like the cloud car but the Hp thing is good to.

why is cloud car red again?

I have a few, want some more & these both will be added to the list.
The cloud car does look like it wants a second minifig

If they're the storied ones (rather than just pictures of builds), they were good for reading/building with my daughters

I got the DC one with Green Lantern and it did not disappoint. I would prefer though more exclusive or previously undone figures and characters like Green Lantern was in the DC.

I have the previous SW Build Your Own Adventure which featured a Y-Wing microfighter (a variant of the 75162 model).

I must admit that I wasn't initially sure of whether to get this or not, but absolutely no regrets with this... apart from the model itself, the book is packed with good themes / projects / tips around a storyline packed with humour, which fires up the imagination of kids and AFOLs.

I have both the SW and HP new releases on pre-order and am looking forward to receiving them.

Highly recommended... and good fun.

Lego get ya heads in gear and do A marvel one then another City one based on the jungle & space themes..

The Harry Potter archway seems a bit over-engineered, but it’s still a really nice update to the original sorting hat set.

I, too, picked up the DC BYOA book. I think it’s a cool spaceship build, and you get an exclusive John Stuart Green Lantern, to boot.

I’m wondering why we haven’t seen any Marvel books as yet. They would be a great way to introduce some exclusive minifigs.

I got the Nexo Knights book because it came with a Battlesuit for Robin.

Still a fun read too.

So excited for the Star Wars one! I was looking forward to this for a year!

Disappointed there's no exclusive fig for the Potter book. I was hoping for a generic, black Hogwarts uniform at least...

The Harry Potter book AND the contained mini-build are lovely!

Great way to get the Sorting Hat without having to fork out for the Great Hall.

I got the Commander Gree vs. Commando Droid one. The micro V-19 in it is really accurate for size

Whats with the right side flame piece on the HP set? Looks like its photoshopped on top of the brown 1x1 round plate?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Harry Potter one makes Harry under an arch or..Harry under a different arch? They couldn’t think of anything else? Or is there a legitimate reason for this?

Have any of these book sets had stickers before or is HP the first?

@ Royweezy

from the image supplied, the larger picture appears to be the entrance to Gryfindor room and the 2nd is a fireplace (ISTR that Harry & company used chimneys for "flue transportation" for going from one place to another)...

In general, I have been trying to get every LEGO Harry Potter set ever released. However, this one will be a tough sell, because I got the old Sorting Hat spinner set back in 2002 open-box clearance for 75 cents.
