A Look at the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022) Box Distribution

Here’s a timely update on what we’ve learned so far about this next big CMF craze. Following LEGO’s official reveal of the highly anticipated LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022) a couple of weeks ago, there were earlier impressions that these J.K. Rowling inspired characters will be somehow equally represented among 60 blind bags that each box has.

However, according to Brickset guru CapnRex101, this next CMF series will consists of certain rare figures and one chase minifigure per box very much similar to what LEGO did with the LEGO CMF Series 18 with its Classic Police Officer minifig.  Here’s a breakdown of the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022) box distribution:

Collectible Minifigures (71022)

Harry Potter:
  • 3 – Harry Potter (Hogwarts Uniform)
  • 3 – Hermione Granger
  • 3 – Ron Weasley
  • 3 – Draco Malfoy
  • 3 – Neville Longbottom
  • 3 – Cho Chang
  • 3 – Dean Thomas
  • 3 – Lord Voldemort
  • 3 – Dobby
  • 3 – Cedric Diggory
  • 3 – Filius Flitwick
  • 3 – Mad-Eye Moody
  • 3 – Albus Dumbledore
  • 2 – Luna Lovegood
  • 2 – Sybil Trelawney
  • 2 – Harry Potter (Invisibility Cloak)
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them:
  • 3 – Newt Scamander
  • 3 – Porpentina Goldstein
  • 3 – Jacob Kowalski
  • 3 – Queenie Goldstein
  • 2 – Credence Barebone
  • 1 – Percival Graves

As you can see from the above list provided by Brickset, the chase minifigure from this series will be the dubious Percival Graves. For a while there I thought that the chase minifigure will be Harry with his Invisibility Cloak. Rumors regarding the inclusion of a chase minifig in this series were circulating around LEGO fan forums for quite some time. Personally, I feel that there are a lot of better candidates to have a chase minifig other than Percival Graves. I guess I will not really understand LEGO’s decision on this one.

Percival Graves will be the chase minifigure in the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022).

Looking further on the list, we will also see that the characters of Luna Lovegood, Sybil Trelawney, Harry Potter (with Invisibility Cloak) and Credence Barebone only has 2 minifigures for each them, leaving any LEGO CMF completionist having only 2 complete sets per box – less Percival graves of course. With such limited box distribution, I strongly feel that the cost for one complete set of this CMF series will be considerably higher in the aftermarket as compared to other LEGO CMF series before it. I guess we just have to wait and see.

The LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022) are slated to be released on August across LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.
