It looks like we can expect more LEGO Harry Potter books to arrive in 2019, and the best part is, most of them will come with more free minifigures. After the reveal of the LEGO Harry Potter Back to Hogwarts Activity Book, we now have additional Potter-inspired books from different publishers which will also offer their own free LEGO minifigs.
First off, we have DK’s LEGO Harry Potter Build Your Own Adventure book to be released int the UK on July 4, 2019. If you recall, DK’s Build You Own Adventure books usually come with an exclusive building set and a free minifigure.
Though the Amazon UK listing in which this book has been initially found does not show yet the actual build, it provides a silhouette of what it will be. I really can’t figure out what the build is, but I can clearly see a wizard’s hat in the middle (could it be the Sorting Hat?!). Here’s a preliminary image courtesy of Amazon UK. DK’s LEGO Harry Potter Build Your Own Adventure Book retails for £19.99 in the UK.
Second, we also have another LEGO inspired book written by Jenna Ballard, slated to be released in the US on May 14, 2019. Listed via Amazon US, details are still very scant about this title, save for one important detail that LEGO Harry Potter fans will not miss: it comes with a free LEGO Hermione minifigure. The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Handbook seems to be like any typical activity book whose main selling point is the free LEGO minifigure that comes with it. Like the previously mentioned activity book, we really don’t have an idea what particular minifig version of Hermione are we going to see bundled with this offering. But it is highly probable that it might be the same as that of her younger version of during her first years in Hogwarts, just as we see her in more recent LEGO Harry Potter sets such as the Hogwarts Whomping Willow (75953), Hogwarts Great Hall (75954), and Quidditch Match (75956).
Here’s a brief description of the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Handbook, now available for pre-order retailing for $8.80.
