James and Oliver Phelps, the actors who portrayed the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter films, signed copies of four different sets. They were apparently made available at the VIP Reward Centre, but are already out of stock. The LEGO Group has previously said that forecasting demand is “very very tricky”, with previous VIP stock running out quickly including the rare Bat Pod, rare Droid Commander polybag and retired 60 Years of the Brick set.
75980 Attack on the Burrow required 16,800 points, which would have been earned on £2,100 of LEGO.com orders. It’s a lot of VIP points for the average fan to aquire, although perhaps not so difficult for LEGO resellers.
A selection of new LEGO sets launched recently, including 75978 Diagon Alley, 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport, 60271 Main Square, 71028 Harry Potter Series 2, 75279 Star Wars Advent Calendar, 75981 Harry Potter Advent Calendar, 60268 City Advent Calendar and 41420 Friends Advent Calendar.
