Are you ready to celebrate your favorite Hogwarts house? The new LEGO® Art Harry Potter™ Hogwarts Crests sets give Harry Potter™ enthusiasts and older LEGO fans alike the chance to proudly display their allegiance to the Hogwarts house of their choice with new 2D tile mosaic wall art sets.

An immersive soundtrack can also give fans a behind the scenes peek into the Wizarding World as experts talk more about Hogwarts and the different houses, helping them to switch off and explore their love of Harry Potter as they build. The soundtrack includes stories of those close to the Wizarding World™ including:

LEGO Announces Interactive Harry Potter Diagon Alley Set
Posted by Megs

We have some exciting news on this eve of Back to Hogwarts day! LEGO announced a brand new set, created with help from James & Oliver Phelps, releasing tomorrow! The beautiful Diagon Alley LEGO set has an interactive element to it with the help of a mobile site and buildable QR codes.

The set is a little over a yard wide when lined up and comes with 14 minifigures of characters found in Diagon Alley throughout the series! There are interactive elements such as a hidden lever to trigger movement of the arm/hat of the statue in Weasley’s shop.

Marcos Bessa, LEGO Harry Potter Design Lead commented: “I love how faithful the final design is to the architectural details in the film. You can barely see some of these buildings zooming past your screen, but we tracked down different photographs from the sets – some of them from nearly 20 years ago – to make sure everything is spot on. Diagon Alley is the biggest set I’ve designed to-date and I am really proud of how it has come together.”

This set is for ages 16+, contains 5,544 pieces and retails for $399.99. It will be available for purchase tomorrow, September 1st in LEGO stores and their official website!

 “We wanted to inject some LEGO magic into the hearts of Wizarding World fans across the country, and what better way to celebrate the creativity and fun of LEGO bricks than to create mischievous Nifflers in brick form,” said Rory Unwin, Brand Manager for LEGO Wizarding World. “The reaction from the public has been fantastic, up and down the country – and we hope Wizarding World fans enjoy seeing them as much as we did building them!”

NIFFLERS – FACT-FILE:

  • Nifflers are long-snouted, burrowing creatures native to Britain with a penchant for anything shiny
  • Their special abilities are finding treasure and they have a pouch in their bellies where they hide their loot such as jewelry, coins or other sparkly objects
