Is LEGO Harry Potter 30628 The Monster Book of Monsters coming in January?

LEGO Harry Potter 30628 The Monster Book of Monsters may be available as a gift-with-purchase through official LEGO channels in January.

Promobricks reports the promo model will be free with a €75 spend on Harry Potter sets in European LEGO Stores and at It’s not the first time the buildable book has been available as a gift-with-purchase in European stores, of course – it was previously spotted earlier in December, with the same spending threshold required to bag it.

While the set’s eventual release in the UK has been uncertain, it’s now listed at as a ‘free item’ with a value of £17.99. That suggests it will indeed be coming to the UK in line with the rest of Europe, presumably with a required spend of £75.

The promotion will apparently run from January 1 to 31, or while stocks last. There’ll be plenty to spend your money on even if your LEGO Harry Potter collection is up to date, too: four new ‘Hogwarts Moments’ sets will launch in 2021.

Buying a complete collection of those sets will ring in at £111.96 / €119.96, which is more than enough to qualify for 30628 The Monster Book of Monsters. (Even just your three favourites would do.) Alternatively, there are plenty of current releases to catch up on, including 71043 Hogwarts Castle (when it’s in stock) and 75980 The Burrow.

There’s no word on whether the promo will also run in the US, but the set has already made its way to Barnes & Noble and LEGO Discovery Centres stateside. Stock is definitely available there, then – but whether it will be available through official channels in January is another question entirely.

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.
