The enormous Wizarding World set sold out at LEGO.com two days ago, but just like magic, it’s now back and available to buy. That theoretically means you can just about snag it in time for Christmas, with the online store’s cut-off date for express delivery originally set at 1pm today.
However, owing to temporary restrictions on goods moving in and out of the UK, LEGO.com now advises that express delivery may take longer than normal. That means that even if you place an order this morning, there’s a chance it might not arrive in time for Christmas.
Equally, though, it could – you’ll just have to take the chance if you’re desperate for 75978 Diagon Alley under the tree. And as last-minute gifts go, it’s a real belter, with 5,544 pieces and 14 minifigures in the box, all of which assembles into a truly magical shopping street.
The Harry Potter set’s return to LEGO.com sees it return to Brick Fanatics’ Top 20 LEGO Sets List, straight in at third place. It’s the highest-ranked set that’s available to order right now – 75192 Millennium Falcon and 71040 The Disney Castle are on back order – making it our best recommendation for Christmas. As long as it arrives in time, anyway.
A purchase of £150 will currently bag you 40416 Ice Skating Rink, while 5006482 Holiday Gift Set 2020 is now being added to every order, regardless of value. (It previously required a £40 purchase.) Those gifts stack, so spending £150 will net you both freebies.
