The Harry Potter theme continues it’s magical celebration with today’s reveal of the Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition (76391). The LEGO® Group has gone big and beautiful for this latest 20th anniversary offering. This 18+ set brings together elements from across the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in one stunning display. This is the largest of the current wave of Harry Potter sets, and also the most sculptural. It’s another standout piece among an already strong wave (and theme) that’s sure to impress many fans.
UPDATE: The LEGO® Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Icons Collectors’ Edition will now launch on September 15th in the US, Canada, and Mexico, rather than September 2nd as originally planned due to a shipping delay in the US. The set will be available for online only pre-order at LEGO.com beginning September 2nd. The product will be available in LEGO Retail stores on September 15th.
“The timeless magic of Harry Potter never leaves you, and this new LEGO set is our way of celebrating 20 years of LEGO Harry Potter and the wonderful people and things found in it.”
“Every item in the set is filled with memories, from winning quidditch matches to iconic potion ingredients, not to mention getting that all-important letter. Building the Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition Set is sure to bring fond recollections back for Wizarding World and LEGO fans alike, with this beautiful centrepiece.”Marcos Bessa, LEGO Designer

Iconic Moments and Items
It’s nostalgically easy to spot all the recognizable items in this set. Sitting proudly at the centre of the set is Harry’s loyal owl, Hedwig, clutching the infamous Hogwarts letter. We will also find Harry’s wand and glasses, a chocolate frog, a potions tray with five bottles and ingredients, as well as Tom Riddle’s diary, the Golden Snitch and a school scarf which is customisable to match any Hogwarts House. There are quite a few new printed elements, including the large Hogwarts letter plates. Any use of printing over stickers is always appreciated in sets, especially expensive D2C sets. In some ways, ‘that’s owl I know’…… come on, I had to at least once.
Hogwarts Icons will also feature it’s own set of 20th anniversary golden minifigures. 3 more iconic characters will be added to the collection: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall and Rubeus Hagrid. These fan favourite characters were an obvious omission from the initial wave of sets and now we see they were being saved for a big reveal. There is some great golden detailing on these figs – much more than in the already released figures. They even get their own display stand with printed tile, resembling a chocolate frog box collectors card. These are some stunning figs and they will no doubt be a huge draw amongst collectors.
Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition follows in the brick steps of Hogwarts Castle (71043) and Diagon Alley (75978) as the “big set of the year”. Although we can consider this primarily a display piece, it does have a few play elements. I’m sure kids will love to don the glasses and cast some spells with a full-size wand. I also appreciate the break from the usual buildings or playsets/scenes. This is art. And a cool exploration of what LEGO® bricks can do. The cost-per-brick is also good at $0.116, giving it a solid value for the price.
What do you guys think? Are you excited by this reveal? Does this more sculptural set impress you or would you prefer something else (did I hear Gringott’s from you in the back?). While we wait on the Deathly Hallows sets (hopefully next year), we at least get plenty of new ways to play in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 2021. Comment below and let us know your thoughts. And as always, keep on brickin’.
