Last year's release of the Harry Potter LEGO range had fans in a complete spin, and it's happening all over again, because not only did we get a new batch of Potter-themed sets in June, but two more gems have just landed (a little early) for August! Head over to Mighty Ape and check them out now.
The two newest sets to land are geared towards ages seven to nine and above (but my fingers are still crossed that LEGO releases a Duplo Harry Potter set one of these days!).
LEGO Harry Potter The Rise of Voldemort ($32) comes with 184 pieces and revolves around that classic scene from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in which Harry is stuck in a tombstone, and Vldemort unleashes a Death Eater. Minifigures include Harry, Lord Voldemort, Peter Pettigrew, and of course, a Death Eater.
LEGO Harry Potter Beauxbatons' Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts ($72) is a bigger build with 430 pieces. With this set, builders can recreate the famous blue Beauxbaton carriage, complete with two flying horses. Minifigures include include Hagrid, Fleur Delacour, Madame Maxime and Gabrielle Delacour.
Here's a re-cap of the LEGO Harry Potter sets that arrives in June. The best deals on these are currently at Kmart, although they are also available at Mighty Ape.
LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower 75948 ($119 shipped) has 922 pieces and eight minifigures. It features three different levels of play, and includes an Entrance Hall, Defence Against the Dark Arts Classroom, Hospital Wing, Dumbledore's Office and more. a section of icy decorations for the Yule Ball.
LEGO Harry Potter Hagrid's Hut: Buckbeak's Rescue 75947 ($88) is one of my favourites - because who doesn't love Hadrid?! There are 496 pieces, a light-up brick for the fireplace, and six minifigures.
LEGO Harry Potter Expecto Patronum 75945 ($25) has 121 pieces and includes four minifigures (two of which are Dementors) and a fabulous setting of the Forbidden Forest.
LEGO Harry Potter The Knight Bus 75957 ($59) has 403 pieces three minifigures. With a sliding bed and swinging chandelier, this is going be just as much to play with as to build.
