From a certain point of view, UK publisher Dorling-Kindersley (DK) is the king of LEGO printed media and references. Recently they brought out a New Edition for their long-running “LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary.” It even got a 20th Anniversary Edition (with extra freebies) timed with the product line’s milestone.
But “Star Wars” is just one licensed franchise under LEGO’s belt. They also have Warner and J.K. Rowling’s “Wizarding World,” particularly “Harry Potter.” That’s the subject of this new “Build Your Own Adventure” book that’s been listed on Amazon. It’s also now ready for preorder.
As can be expected from DK’s “Build Your Own Adventure” series, this book combines visual references to the world of “Harry Potter.” That’s doubled with nifty building instructions to recreate locales and scenes familiar to “Potter” readers from books and films, using existing LEGO pieces.
The book also comes with several goodies too. There’s a Harry Potter minifigure, a poster and several bookmarks. It also carries enough LEGO bricks with which to build an exclusive 2-in-1 set not rendered in any other LEGO HP products. The builds appear to be a Hogwarts Castle interior doorway and a possible fireplace to use the Floo Network on.
“LEGO Harry Potter Build Your Own Adventure” from Dorling-Kindersley is priced at $16.33 on Amazon. Like we said earlier, it’s up for preorder over there now, in anticipation for its official release on July 4.
