Since its launch back in August 2018, the LEGO Harry Potter CMF (71022) has proved itself popular among LEGO HP fans, with most sharing the same sentiment that a follow-up series is long overdue. There have been rumors circulating online that another CMF series dedicated to the magical theme is now in the works. And this time it seems that LEGO has finally confirmed its arrival. From the looks of it, we can now expect the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028) starting September.
The news of the upcoming LEGO HP CMF Series 2 has been hinted upon by LEGO itself through its recently released digital catalogs. What is interesting is that though virtually all regional versions of the catalogs mention a new CMF series in September, the Australian version of the LEGO catalog points it out to be 71028.
Though it may be pointed out that the catalog listing does not in any way mention 71028 to be a Harry Potter-themed CMF, leaks as early as last month show it to be otherwise. I’m not in the liberty of showing these images here, but a cursory search over at Instagram for example will show you the way – that is if you don’t bother looking at spoilers. What we can determine from this reveal by LEGO is the fact that the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71028) is the next CMF to be released this year and we can expect it to be in stores by September.
In case you missed it, here’s what you can expect from this upcoming CMF. Take note that there are a total of 16 minifigs to collect in this series, and the following are just some of the characters that we know so far:
- Professor Pomona Sprout with mandrake
- Luna Lovegood with new lion hat accessory (unlike that from the lion costume from TLM2 CMF 71023)
- Professor Albus Dumbledore as seen from the Chamber of Secrets, together with our
firstmost recent LEGO version of Fawkes
- Kingsley Shacklebolt with broom accessory
- Neville Longbottom in school robes (unlike that from 71022) with a Book of Monsters figure
- Bellatrix Lestrange in her Azkaban outfit, and newspaper accessory
- Harry Potter with Advanced Potion-Making book
- Moaning Myrtle
- Griphook in his Gringotts outfit
