This piece of news somehow fell off my radar. And in case you missed it, LEGO has listed a new minifigure accessory set under the LEGO Harry Potter theme. The new LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World Minifigure Accessory Set (40500) set is now listed at LEGO Shop@Home.
This minifigure pack includes three characters from Potterverse which is now given the LEGO treatment. Though LEGO’s product page did not name these characters specifically, any sharp Harry Potter fan can immediately identify these as the Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour, Order of the Phoenix member Dedalus Diggle, and Doris Crockford from The Philosopher’s Stone. The new LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World Minifigure Accessory pack also includes a Harry Potter variant as he is seen in the Order of the Phoenix. Though the number of LEGO pieces included in this accessory set is quite minimal, LEGO has thrown in an interesting printed tile piece that includes several names of those who enlisted in Dumbledore’s Army.
This minifigure pack comes in at 33 pieces and will retail for $14.99 when it releases some time soon. For now, you may want to click on its corresponding affiliate link above if you wish to add this to your LEGO wishlist.

The official LEGO website lists one of the characters as ‘Mr. Borgin’, who’s on-screen depiction matches the long haired wizard ‘immediately identified (incorrectly) as the Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour’…
Yeah, I noticed that as well. Though I wouldn’t say that referring to this minifigure as Rufus Scrimgeour is incorrect right away just because the product page refers to him as Mr. Borgin. If I will closely compare the features of Mr. Borgin to this particular minifig, I have to honestly say that I don’t find them similar. In fact, this is more similar to Scrimgeour, especially when you consider how LEGO previously rendered him in the LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 video game. Did LEGO make a mistake with this particular description? I really can’t say, and I guess we just have to wait and see.
