Concluding thoughts…

Overall, I like the look of these sets. From the photos, each one appears to be fairly well designed. You get a couple of mythical creatures thrown in as well. I like Harry’s Patronus, and I hope that we will see this mold used again in another theme as an actual stag, and not this ghostly blue variant. In terms of my pick, I think I am most keen on the Hogwarts Clock Tower. Overall, this latest wave is a pretty good value too. You are looking at an average cost per brick of $0.15 CAD, which is only a tad above my current average ($0.14/brick). I am a little shocked at the Expecto Patronum value though… What are your thoughts? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Until next time,
