A new LEGO set replicates some of the most iconic objects from the series in exacting detail, even including a giant model of Hedwig the owl.
If you’re a fanatical Potterhead, LEGO has got you covered with the release of its Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons Collector’s Edition set that features some of the most famous objects from the popular series of books and films, along with thee very special minifigures.
Included in the box will be models of:
- Hedwig the owl
- Hogwarts invitation letter
- Harry’s wand and glasses
- Tom Riddle’s diary
- The Golden Snitch
- A school scarf that can be customised for each school house
These individual models can be placed on a provided display stand, and once combined will form a construction measuring 44cm high, 50cm wide, and 33cm deep. The set is recommended for those above the age of eighteen as it looks like a challenging build, consisting of over 3000 pieces in total.
On top of that, three exclusive golden LEGO minifigures are also included, depicting the familiar faces of Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid, and Minerva McGonagall; the trio were chosen as they all appear in the very first scene of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
