Brick Fanatics reviews 75978 Diagon Alley

It is made up of a series of modular buildings, allowing for fans to display the set however they choose. When lined up in a row, the set is 29cm tall, 102.4cm wide and 13cm deep.

Here is an extract from the press release:

Measuring more than a meter wide and made up of over 5,000 pieces, LEGO Diagon Alley features the famed wizarding world shops packed with authentic details from the movies to truly capture the ambience of the street.

Behind magnificent and detailed storefronts lie intriguing interiors, fascinating features and familiar characters. Fans can recreate some of their favourite moments from the Harry Potter film series including; discovering the wands at Ollivander’s from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, dropping in on Gilderoy Lockhart’s book-signing event at Flourish & Blott’s bookstore from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; or obtaining a love potion from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

“I love how faithful the final design is to the architectural details in the film. You can barely see some of these buildings zooming past your screen, but we tracked down different photographs from the sets – some of them from nearly 20 years ago – to make sure everything is spot on,” says LEGO Design Lead Marcos?Bessa. “Diagon Alley is the biggest set I’ve designed to-date and I am really proud of how it has come together.”
