The 374-piece model assembles into a street of Diagon Alley facades, including Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Bank, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Flourish and Blotts and Ollivander’s wand shop. There’s also a minifigure version of Ollivander included, which means character collectors won’t be able to pass this up.
There’s still no concrete word on how 40289 will be available, however, outside of being an upcoming gift with purchase in Chinese LEGO stores. It was briefly available to buy outright for around €40 (£35, $45) in a Certified LEGO Store in Slovenia in August, suggesting it could go on general sale. More likely, it’ll be available as a promotional item with qualifying spend at some point in the near future.
If that is the case, it won’t be in November, at least according to the already-revealed store calendars. Of course, there’s nothing stopping it from being a surprise, last-minute promo. Just don’t hold your breath.
In the meantime, you can get your hands on the rest of the Wizarding World range from shop.LEGO.com right now, including 71043 Hogwarts Castle. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in cinemas on November 16.
