Description

Yet another Harry is hard to get excited over, in particular when its torso printing is pretty minimal. Nymphadora Tonks comes with a red hairpiece for she gets angry and her alternate print shows her metamorphing her nose. To the right we have one of my favourite things – the tapestry of the Black family tree complete with Sirius Black and other unpopular family members blasted off. This 3-level building is bursting with amazing adventures and spectacular scenes from the Harry Potter films.

The function that reveals number twelve is outstanding and I think the exterior looks marvellous, while the interior includes numerous details from the movies.The movement is smooth both opening and closing, and the lampposts built into the side of the building provide excellent handles that stand up to play. We do get three of the new brooms, in two colors, with Harry and two of the members of the Advance Guard that accompany him to Grimmauld Place for the first time after the Dementor attack in Little Whinging. Ingot pieces and half-stud spacing with jumper plates give the steps appealing texture and spacing, while several bright colors help to tile the pieces of the mechanism that will be hidden. It’s remarkable that we are more than two decades into LEGO Harry Potter as a theme (give or take a seven-year hiatus) and large chunks of the later books and films remain almost entirely unexplored in LEGO sets. I like the contrasting colours too, even though that contrast has been exaggerated, relative to the film.

In the room above the kitchen the main feature is the piano, where Hermione was teaching Ron playing Für Elise in the Deathly Hallows. Also, it's interesting that they chose Sirius' death jacket which belongs ideally in the Ministry set rather than the wine velvet jacket that he has on most of the time in his Grimmauld scenes. LEGO audience – finally with the summer 2022 wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets we are diving into some of the later material from the magical wizarding world. Sirius' bedroom is found on the top floor, featuring a Gryffindor banner and therefore conflicting with the Black family's long-held Slytherin affiliation. Grimmauld Place not only offers that sizeable minifigure count and a more-than-decent dollhouse model that neatly balances exterior design with interior play, but it also, crucially and somewhat amazingly, appears and disappears between its neighbouring properties, just like in the book and film, just like magic.

I love the work that LEGO does by taking source material with human figures in it and adapting it to minifigure form instead, and this is a great example. While it's fantastic to get a Ministry of Magic and Deathly Hallows-based set, both thing for which fans have been clamoring for quite some time, 76408 12 Grimmauld Place is the better set of these two. Several mugs and goblets are placed along this table, with an exclusive newspaper tile which depicts The Daily Prophet's momentous 'The Boy Who Lies? Fred features a smile and a laughing expression with open eyes, while George's laughing face includes closed eyes. Hand-in-hand with the design, playability feels severely compromised by the design of the interior rooms.

Of the minifigures attached to the build in the below picture, only Kreacher was knocked off when I “closed” the building to hide No.We also wanted to share some recently retired Harry Potter Sets that haven’t performed so well, we have Set 75966 LEGO Hogwarts Room of Requirement was released in December 2021 and currently is showing no growth though this is likely to increase in years to come. Such details are missing from the sides, although these medium nougat 1x6x5 panels look reasonable and the chimney pots on the roof are equally effective. My only real gripe is the lack of RAB initials in Regulus Black's room and I wish the skull area at the top had a railing or something to add a little more detail. Like Kingsley, she’s only appeared once before as minifigure, in her example in the Attack on The Burrow set from 2020. The magical world Rowling created, in which many who felt a bit different could see themselves, meant a great deal to so many people, including those that Rowling now demeans.

Before finishing this step, another row of bricks are added on top and two streetlights are added on either side. This also originates from The Deathly Hallows, as the heroes listen for news about Death Eater attacks. As such, LEGO 12 Grimmauld Place is an excellent option to consider but maybe one not to get carried away with particularly if you are looking for short term profits.Displaying the model in this configuration does create an issue though because the steps no longer cover the whole frontage. This set has a great figure count, nine in total: Sirius Black, Kreacher, Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Ron Weasley, Molly Weasley, Fred Weasley, George Weasley and of course Harry Potter. This iDisplayit clear display is made in the UK using 3mm acrylic and is designed especially to house the LEGO 76408 model.
