LEGO can’t keep up with demand for its Harry Potter sets

LEGO Harry Potter 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition has already sold out again at LEGO.com, only a day after it finally returned.

The 3,010-piece flagship Wizarding World set of 2021 first dropped out of stock in November, making for a not-very-magical Xmas for anyone hoping to pick it up for the festive season. It finally came back in stock yesterday, some six weeks on – but you’ll have to have been quick to scoop up the impressive display piece, because it’s already disapparated.

That unavailability is only one piece of a wider puzzle currently plaguing the LEGO Group, and its name is ‘global supply chain issues’. A quick glance at LEGO.com shows just how much trouble the company is still having keeping up with demand across the board, with many of its biggest and best sets either on back order or temporarily out of stock altogether.

It’s no real surprise that there’s such high demand for 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition, given just how brilliant the collection of buildable Harry Potter objects is. (Check out our review for the proof.) And it’s also one of the few sets to have benefited from the LEGO Group’s recent price changes, coming down by a full £10 in the UK – potentially contributing to how quickly it’s sold out again.

If you’re ruing missing out on it this time, no worries: simply sign up to our stock alerts and we’ll let you know when it’s back. For now, 76391 Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition must leave our Top 20 LEGO Sets List, replaced by 80012 Monkey King Warrior Mech – another set that’s gone down in price for 2022, this time by £15. Not too shabby.

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.
