Brick Fanatics reviews 75978 Diagon Alley

“I can’t stress how excited I am to see ourselves as LEGO characters, and what I really like as well is they are individual, because when we filmed the vests were different colours – and that’s exactly the same here, so I know that’s me,” James says in the video, pointing out the minifigure based on his character.

A selection of new LEGO sets launched yesterday, 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.
