LEGO Harry Potter’s new collection of models feature several updates, additions and references, so we’ve poured through every image we have of them so far to highlight what you can look forward to spotting.
From magical creatures making their first appearance in LEGO form to references to themes outside the Wizarding World – here are five things you may have missed in the LEGO Harry Potter anniversary sets.
Fluffy the two-headed dog
No, that’s not an error on our part, the new build for Fluffy – guardian of the Philosopher’s Stone in 76387 Hogwarts Fluffy Encounter features a new piece for the dog’s three heads. However, each part of the pooch can be faced in two directions, making it look awake and angry or in a blissful slumber thanks to the nearby harp.
From music to magic
Just like the chocolate frogs in the Wizarding World, the new range of LEGO Harry Potter will include some printed tiles to collect featuring characters from across the franchise. There will be a total of 16 to collect, and it’s a similar concept last seen with VIDIYO’s BeatBits.
A pixie piece
Cornish Pixies are the latest magical creature to be added to the LEGO Group’s growing menagerie, with a new element that closely resembles the baby piece used for the infants of LEGO City and even Grogu from Star Wars. The mischief-loving characters appear in 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets with the wide eyes and cheeky grin all captured on the transparent piece.
Rooms for improvement
Unlike the last iteration of the school for wizards and witches, the 2021 Hogwarts is designed to have its rooms be interchangeable with one another with the sections spread throughout the sets. Have you ever fancied having the girl’s toilets next to the Chamber of Secrets? Well, now you can!
A Toa amongst the stars
LEGO designers love to sneak all kind of references and Easter Eggs into their sets, from a call-back to a popular YouTube video to a constellation resembling a classic theme. The latter of those two is what’s on one of the stickers in 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets as a BIONICLE mask appears alongside other star signs on an astronomy guide.
