LEGO Harry Potter 75978 Diagon Alley is out of stock yet again

It’s the tale of our times: LEGO Harry Potter 75978 Diagon Alley is once more out of stock at LEGO.com.

In just the past two weeks, the 5,544-piece Wizarding World set has sold out, come back, sold out, come back, and now sold out yet again at the official online store. The eternal yo-yoing makes it ridiculously difficult to plan your purchases, but so goes the state of the LEGO Group’s stock at the moment.

That said, given how quickly the set seems to sell out, it’s clearly not stopping people with cash to burn on an enormous LEGO Harry Potter display. If that’s you, don’t fret: 71043 Hogwarts Castle is available right now, so you can still get your magical LEGO fix.

You won’t get it in time for Christmas, unfortunately, but it could make for a great way to ring in 2021 – as long as standard delivery resumes soon, or you plump for express delivery. There are a lot of variables to consider when shopping at LEGO.com at the moment, but for a set as great as 71043 Hogwarts Castle, it’s definitely worth juggling them.

75978 Diagon Alley is also very much worthy of that online shopping headache, so if you’re yet to get your hands on one of 2020’s biggest LEGO sets, sign up for our stock alerts. We’ll email you when it’s available to buy, which – based on past trends – will probably be tomorrow morning. And then it’ll be gone by Christmas.

As veteran Brick Fanatics readers will be familiar with by now, 75978 Diagon Alley’s departure from LEGO.com means it also comes out of our Top 20 LEGO Sets List. Thankfully, there’s still plenty to get excited about in that list, including 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay and 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System.

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.
