For the rest of the world, LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition (76391) has already been available for buyers. For North America, the wait has been quite tedious. The tired old “shipping delay” issue has been a plague on hot upcoming LEGO sets, particularly this. Becoming pre-orderable on LEGO Shop@Home US back in September 2 has helped but not much. The new release date of September 15, the middle of this month, seemed so far away still. But it’s the middle of September now. And NA LEGO Potter-fans can now rejoice that Hogwarts Icons (76391) is at last available.
Check out the online listing immediately and be relieved in the vivid green letters saying “Available now.” LEGO Harry Potter collectors celebrating the theme’s 20th anniversary will likely not be put off by the $249.99 asking price. They are after all getting brick-built reproductions of major items/artifacts/relics from the “Harry Potter” franchise. And of course, that buildable Hedwig is magnificent.
But that’s not everything. A single purchase of Hogwarts Icons – Collector’s Edition (76391) before September ends will sufficiently qualify for an extended GWP. Yep, LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) is still around. It’s only until the end of the month, so better make it quick.
