40289 Diagon Alley

LEGO will release a new Diagon Alley set (the third LEGO iteration of the Wizarding street), with images of the set and its packaging discovered online today. The 374-piece set will be a “microscale” (smaller scale with smaller figures) companion set to the 6020-piece Hogwarts Castle build.

This version of Diagon Alley includes Gringotts Wizarding Bank, bookstore Flourish & Blotts and the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes joke shop. The set will also include a new minifigure of wandmaker Ollivander. No word yet on the release date for this set, but November seems likely.

Will we see more Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts sets released next month, too? Learn more about the world of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts LEGO sets in our dedicated LEGO section.

The 6020-piece 71043 Hogwarts Castle

Seven years after the last Harry Potter sets were released, LEGO has unveiled a number of exciting new Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts themed builds. The centrepiece of the new products is an epic 6000+ piece (!) Hogwarts Castle and grounds.

The new sets feature iconic scenes from the 8 ‘Potter’ films, as well as two Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sets (including an exciting new Crimes of Grindelwald build)A number of new minifigures are also included with the new releases.

The new sets include Aragog’s Lair, the Whomping Willow and castle, The Great Hall, the Hogwarts Express and a Quidditch Match. The Fantastic Beasts sets include Newt’s Case (complete with a number of magical creatures) and Grindelwald’s Escape (in what looks to be a Thestral-and-cart), a new scene we’ll learn more about in the Crimes of Grindelwald film.

The epic highlight of the new sets is a 6020-piece Hogwarts Castle, LEGO’s second largest set (behind the Star Wars Millenium Falcon). The castle showcases a number of iconic scenes from the ‘Potter’ films, and includes 4 minifgures (the four Hogwarts founders) and 27 character microfigures.

You can purchase the new sets on the official LEGO website, or learn more about the history of Harry Potter LEGO in our dedicated LEGO section.
