LEGO has a new surprise for its LEGO Harry Potter fans. Thanks to Hungarian online store Kockashop, we now have our first look at the upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412). If you recall, we first mentioned this set back in January as part of LEGO’s repertoire of 2020 BrickHeadz offerings.
Coming in at 270 pieces, this latest BrickHeadz duo is LEGO’s 5th Harry Potter offering under this collectible theme. The set features a brick-built Hagrid with a lantern and umbrella accessory (which happens to Hagrid’s favorite umbrella by the way). Buckbeak, being the hippogrif as he is, comes in a four-legged brick version that cleverly retains all the features of a typical BrickHeadz build. I like how LEGO designers reimagined Hagrid’s look especially the way his hair was shaped in this set and the emphasis on Buckbeak’s signature white plumage and characteristic front legs.
Here’s a rough Google translation (with some editing) of Kockashop’s product description of this set.
LEGO BricHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412)
270 pieces | Expected retail price: $19.99
The LEGO BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412) is a magical gift for fans of Harry Potter movies and collectors of BrickHeadz models. Hagrid is unmistakable with his big black hair, long brown coat, lantern in one hand, and his favorite pink umbrella in the other. Buckbeak has distinctive white plumage from the top of the head to the beak. Both collectible characters stand on a durable baseplate, making them perfect for both play and decoration.
This next Harry Potter themed BrickHeadz set is not yet listed at LEGO Shop@Home but I’ll update this post once they make their debut in LEGO’s online shopping portal. As I mentioned, this latest LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter offering follows other sets in the theme such as:
- 41615 LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter and Headwig
- 41616 LEGO BrickHeadz Hermione Granger
- 41621 LEGO BrickHeadz Ron Weasley & Albus Dumbledore
- 41631 LEGO BrickHeadz Newt Scamander & Gellert Grindelwald
The abovementioned sets are now practically retired, and if in case you’ve still missed out on these sets, you may try clicking on these Amazon affiliate links if you still need to add them to your LEGO Harry Potter collection.
Special thanks to Bouwsteentjes for the heads up.
