Marcos goes through each of the locations contained within 75978 Diagon Alley, showcasing the buildings that he included within the box. Senior Graphic Designer Djordje Djordjevic joins him to discuss the minifigure line up.
In the top right of the long shots, where the shelves are, eagle-eyed fans will spot concept models that show an earlier version of the set built in a larger scale.
“This model is over a metre long, four baseplates of 16×32 next to each other. It has over 5,000 bricks, it’s the perfect marriage between this beautiful display piece but it’s also this beautiful rich playset that can invite anyone to relive all of these iconic moments from the movies,” says Marcos.
The new 5,544 piece set recreates the unforgettable location from the Wizarding World, incorporating Ollivander’s, Flourish & Blotts bookseller; Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Scribbulus Writing Implements, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor and the Daily Prophet.
