Last week, LEGO has finally announced its next collectible minfigures series that highlights some of the most popular characters from JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchise. Now this time around, we get our first glimpse of the respective blind bag and set image of the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022).
This newest LEGO CMF craze consists of 16 LEGO Harry Potter minifigures and 6 LEGO Fantastics Beasts minifigs giving us a total of 22 minifigures to collect. According to Promobricks, the box itself has the usual 60 blind bags with a reported distribution of 3 sets of the LEGO Harry Potter movies, 2 for the LEGO Fantastic Beasts. Doing the math, it means that there are 3 X 16 LEGO HP plus 2 X 6 LEGO FB for a total of 60 minifigures per box. However, this is considered speculative until officially announced by LEGO.
Based on the accessories that go with each collectible minifigure, it looks like we’re not going to have a hard time feeling our way through them. The ones that I think will be the easiest to detect are the minifigures of Cedric Diggory (because of the Triwizard Cup, Dobby with his unique head mold, and Lord Voldemort due to his torso and snake figure that goes with him. It is also interesting to note that each blind bag, particularly for those magical characters, contains an extra wand piece. This is a new piece that LEGO introduced with the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter sets. This latest CMF also introduces the first-ever articulated shorter minifigure legs that previously not available for children minifigs and other shorter characters.
The LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022) are slated to be released in August across LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.
