LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) Set Discovered

Just after sharing our first box art images of the LEGO Brickheadz Minions sets, Promobricks is back with another brick-built bobblehead reveal. We can confirm and expect that another LEGO Brickheadz set is about to join the ever-expanding Wizarding World of Harry Potter, thanks to Czech online store, Heureka. The LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) set features the main protagonists of the Harry Potter franchise with the said offering being the largest Brickheadz set of to date in terms of the number of characters included. Unfortunately, we don’t have much information about this set as of this posting since the details on Heureka’s website are also scant in the meantime.

This latest LEGO Brickheadz set also renders Harry, Hermione, and Ron during their early years in Hogwarts. They also seem to be built on a smaller 3×3 base, as opposed to the standard 4×4. Each of them also sports a 1×3 printed tile for their uniform’s tie and shirt. I have to say that it’s interesting to see these little versions alongside their larger Brickheadz cousins such as those found in 2018’s Harry Potter and Hedwig (41615), Hermione Granger (41616), and Ron Weasley & Albus Dumbledore (41621). However, I have to say that this new mini Brickheadz version of Harry will take some time of getting used to.  Particularly because of those rather oversized eyeglasses. I feel that it does not sit well with the overall Brickheadz design.

This latest set also seems to feature a new, LEGO Brickheadz version of Hagrid. It’s not a major kind of revision but it’s nice to see Hagrid coming in with a unique printed tile of his own to accentuate his fashion. His first LEGO Brickheadz version from last year in the form Hagrid & Buckbeak (40412) did not come with any printed part or accessory. So this most recent iteration is a bit of an improvement.

The LEGO Brickheadz Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid (40495) is not yet posted over at LEGO Shop@Home. But we can safely assume that we will probably hear more about it in the coming weeks, with an anticipated release date of June 2021. So what do you think of this new Brickheadz set? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
