Harry Potter and the LEGO set that just won’t stop selling out

Forget Fantastic Beasts: the next Wizarding World story is actually ‘Harry Potter and the LEGO set that just won’t stop selling out’.

The LEGO Group is having a tough time keeping 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition in stock in the UK, with inventory selling out almost instantly each time it pops back up at LEGO.com. It’s taken just four days for the current batch to sell through, for instance, which means last year’s Harry Potter direct-to-consumer set is temporarily out of stock yet again.

It’s no real surprise that demand for the 3,010-piece build is so high, given just how impressive it is – from Harry’s glasses and wand to the life-size Hedwig that’s perched atop the buildable objects – but that only makes it more frustrating that it’s currently proving so difficult to come by.

It also means that 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition has to leave Brick Fanatics’ Top 20 LEGO Sets List for the time being – but there are still a couple of must-have Wizarding World sets in the mix, including the awe-inspiring (and soon to be retiring) 71043 Hogwarts Castle, and 2020’s minifigure-packed 75978 Diagon Alley.

Rumours say we’re in store for the most expensive LEGO Harry Potter set yet in 2022, so now’s the time to catch up on those older flagship builds while you can. We’ll keep you posted on the return of 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition, too.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    I’d love this set, but cannot get past the mistakes in it – every the it sells out I ring customer services to see if it’s been corrected but no – the crest still has an O where there should be a U and the two stickers are still wrong. It’s a quick fix and one which I would think was easily rectified. For the money I want it to be right – clearly I am the only one as it does keep selling out though – so why would Lego fix it if it’s not affecting sales?!?
