Enter the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – with a smattering of Fantastic Beasts – as Brick Fanatics celebrates all things magical with a new series of vignettes showcasing the LEGO Collectible Minifigures
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has returned to the realm of the LEGO brick, covering the classic stories as well the new Fantastic Beasts films. More characters than ever before have been realised thanks to the 22 LEGO Collectible Minifigures available. It is these minifigures that are showcased in these new vignettes from Brick Fanatics.
Professor Albus Dumbledore
I usually don’t like to build things that have already been built because it feels weird to tread on old ground, especially since Markus (markusrolli on Flickr) did such an amazing rendition last year for the Harry’s Magical Journey project. There are also so many other wonderfully built versions of this location.
I decided to make a little exception this time around because I had an idea to do a cool rounded base for the stone steps leading into Dumbledore’s main office, something that’s not easy to see in the photo. I put two triangular 1×4 wedges of opposite slants next to each other, and with the help of some jumper plates underneath, I was able to attach some 4×4 dark tan rounded corner plates, giving a circular feel to the build, which can be seen slightly on the first step.
The new Dumbledore minifigure also comes with the well-known Pensieve, so I thought it would be funny to also add the Mad-Eye Moody/Barty Crouch’s head to the build, coming out of the Pensieve.
Check back each day this week for more LEGO Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts minifigure vignettes from Brick Fanatics.
