It’s been a big year for LEGO Harry Potter fans and its not over yet. To celebrate the themes 20 year anniversary LEGO have announced they will be releasing the 3010 piece set 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition which will be available in LEGO stores and online on 2nd September, this will be priced at US $249.99 | UK £249.99
This set is packed full of treats that any LEGO Harry Potter fan would be ecstatic to get their hands on. The LEGO Hedwig set (75979) we reviewed a little while ago was a quite rightly a big hit but the designers at LEGO have outdone themselves with this updated version. The features and detail that has gone in to the design of 76391 is exactly what you would hope for on a 20th anniversary release.
It’s hard to portray how impressive this set actually is from the pictures that have been released but you have to trust us that the box is rammed full of treats. A full inventory list of what you will receive in can be seen below.
- Hedwig carrying the entry letter to Hogwarts
- Harry’s wand & glasses
- Tray of potions
- Chocolate frog
- Tom Riddle’s diary
- The Golden snitch
- Hogwarts scarf
- Anniversary Minifigure – Albus Dumbledore
- Anniversary Minifigure – Minerva McGonagall
- Anniversary Minifigure – Rubeus Hagrid
A unique part of this set are the vials of potions, there are five in total. They are great the way they have been designed with labels, contents and corks they nearly look un-LEGO like. The give potions are:
- Polyjuice Potion
- Wormwood Infusion
- Felix Felicis (Liquid Luck)
It is remarkable to amount of effort that has gone in to this set, the size and detail of Hedwig is spot on with it making the LEGO Hedwig set (75979) look incredibly underwhelming (although we would still recommend to get one if you love the Harry Potter theme, its still a great build at the end of the day.
Now we all know that the minfigure collectors out there are going to be excited about the exclusive golden minifigures in this set, quite rightly so too! They look great with again the added feature of a magical stand with the focus on Dumbledore in the middle and the LEGO Harry Potter theme logo on the front.
