Not only does the recently released online LEGO US Catalog 2H 2018 teased on two upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz sets, but it seems that we’ll be seeing the next Collectible Minifigure Series sooner than expected. We’re still swooning with delight on LEGO’s party-themed, commemorative 40th Anniversary CMF Series 18 (71021) minifigs, and it looks like we’re about to get another wave roughly two months from now.
The announcement came in almost as a side note on that particular page in the LEGO US Catalog, and on the rest of its foreign counterparts. The said ‘surprise’ has been rumored to be, within LEGO community and fan forums, to be the LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Series (71022), which also coincides with the release of the rest of the Wizarding World sets.
If you recall way back in 2002, LEGO released four series of collectible Harry Potter minifigure that comes free with qualifying purchases of LEGO Harry Potter sets at that time. The LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Collection Gallery featured 17 minifigures which you can see below (images courtesy of Brickset):
Harry Potter Minifigure Collection Gallery 1 (2002) – Harry Potter, Lucius Malfoy, Madame Hooch, Gilderoy Lockhart
Harry Potter Minifigure Collection Gallery 2 (2002) – Ron Weasley, Hagrid, Uncle Vernon Dursley, Ron/Crabbe
Harry Potter Minifigure Collection Gallery 3 (2002) – Dumbledore, Professor Snape, Ginny Weasley, Draco Malfoy
Harry Potter Minifigure Collection Gallery 4 (2002) – Hermione, Dobby, Professor McGonagall, Harry/Goyle, Tom Riddle
With LEGO’s extensive collection of existing LEGO Harry Potter figures, its kind of hard to predict which Harry Potter character will make it to the cut, if indeed the next CMF Series to arrive in August is all about the Wizarding World. I guess we just have to wait until then.
