A couple of days ago, LEGO revealed the upcoming #71028 LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 characters. As usual, each mystery bag contains one of sixteen different characters from the Harry Potter series. Details below.
The sixteen characters in Series 2 of the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures area as follows: Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Moaning Myrtle, Griphook, Headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Professor Sprout, Neville Longbottom, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lily Potter, and James Potter.
Even for non-Harry Potter fans, Harry Potter minifigs are always awesome as they include a large selection of unique and very useful facial features, clothing, hairpieces, and lots of great accessories. This series in particular is full of pieces that can be used in a wide variety of applications. LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 will be available on September 1st, for $4.99 each. They are already listed at the LEGO Harry Potter section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Another big news for LEGO Harry Potter fans is that LEGO is the upcoming #75978 LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set, which also should be available in September. You might remember that back in 2011, LEGO released the large and highly detailed #10217 LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set with 2,025 pieces. It featured three main buildings from Diagon Alley; Ollivander’s, Borgin and Burke’s, and Gringott’s Bank. (See the older set below.)
While the set was very impressive at its time, we are now getting something even better! The upcoming #75978 LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set will come with 5,544 pieces, and feature the following seven locations: Ollivanders Wand Shop, Flourish & Blotts, Scribbulus Writing Implements, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor, The Daily Prophet, and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. In addition, the set also includes fourteen minifigs. As the set is scheduled for release in September, we should be getting an official press-release soon with images and other details. This set is expected to be epic in both size and detail!
Also, remember that there are a bunch of other LEGO Harry Potter sets coming soon to North America that have been released in other countries already, like the #75966 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Room of Requirements, the #75967 LEGO Harry Potter Forbidden Forest: Umbridge’s Encounter, the #75968 LEGO Harry Potter 4 Privet Drive, the #75969 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Astronomy Tower, the #75979 LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig buildable figure, and the #75980 LEGO Harry Potter Attack on the Burrow. They are already listed at the LEGO Harry Potter section of the Online LEGO Shop.
