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.
