First look at LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Banners ahead of release
Get an early peek at all four LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Banners ahead of their release – and some tips on what to buy.
March 1 will see four Hogwarts house-themed sets join the LEGO Harry Potter theme: 76409 Gryffindor House Banner, 76410 Slytherin House Banner, 76411 Ravenclaw House Banner, and 76412 Hufflepuff House Banner. As the names suggest, each one contains minifigures and references to a different house from the Wizarding World school.
LEGO YouTuber SwiftBricks got her hands on all four LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Banners ahead of their release on March 1. In a video, she digs into the differences between them, as well as which she would recommend you to get – and it might not correspond to your own Hogwarts house.
“If you only have $45 to spend and you only want one of them, I would personally go with whichever Hogwarts house you’re a part of,” SwiftBricks said. “In this case, I’m a Slytherin but I just don’t like the Slyhterin house banner, I love the Hufflepuff one.”
SwiftBricks goes on to demonstrate how each banner folds out into a common room scene, with three minifigures in each set to populate the set.
The YouTuber goes into more detail on each one, highlighting the unique features of each banner, representing elements from that house. These include Ravenclaw’s lost diadem, the plants in the Hufflepuff common room to reflect Professor Sprout’s love of Herbology, and of course the colours of each house.
While SwiftBricks seemed impressed with many of the sets’ details, she did point out that they are essentially the same build, with smaller aesthetic details and colours to differentiate between them. This brings us back to her original advice to perhaps pick the one you have an affinity for or prefer, rather than needing to buy all four.
