The new LEGO® Harry Potter™ Hogwarts Express™ Collector’s Edition set measures a whistle blowing 118cm long and is your ticket to a magical LEGO® adventure at Hogwarts. Rich in details both inside and out, the model includes the steam engine sitting on a track-display-base, a turning lever to activate the driving wheels, the coal car, the passenger car featuring light up bricks, and a spectacular replica of Platform 9 ¾, which can be attached in several different places.
What’s more, the magic continues! This set features an impressive twenty minifigures inspired by four fan-favourite film moments, including the golden trio – Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger and more. Uncover iconic scenes and quotes from the movies that all link to the train or the platform as you build a magical LEGO® Harry Potter world. The set will transport you through the journey from when Harry, Ron and Hermione first meet in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, through to when Albus Severus Potter goes to Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

It seems like monster Harry Potter sets in September are an annual event. We got Diagon Alley in 2020 and Hogwarts Icons in 2021. Now, an epic Hogwarts Express in 2022. Train collectors and Potter fans alike will likely enjoy this latest venture. Sadly, it seems the train does not come with a motor. However, I am sure you can add one. What do you think of the Hogwarts express? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
