With LEGO, what was once old and simple can become new and intricate several years later. In the early days of LEGO Harry Potter, something like Gryffindor House (4772) was already a big deal. A lot can be done already with a bedroom-study room combo and two minifigs. That set however comes up short at a time when LEGO Harry Potter is already 20 years old. There arose rumors last week of a new LEGO HP set depicting the Gryffindor Dorms as a GWP for October. We can now confirm those rumors thanks to LEGO.
As Brick Fanatics tells us, the October 2021 LEGO Store Calendar features this new LEGO Harry Potter set. Hogwarts Gryffindor Dorms (40452) reimagines the rather ancient Gryffindor House (4772) from decades ago with magical detail. Harry and Ron minifigures share a modular-built bedroom setup with a bunk bed, trunk and plenty of miscellaneous accessories. But check out the back wall of the bedroom. It looks like a display space for LEGO tiles depicting the in-universe Wizarding World trading cards. These tile cards are collectible in 20th-Anniversary LEGO HP products. Even the in-store GWP Hermione’s Study Desk polybag (30392) has them.
By the way, we mentioned the modular nature of the Hogwarts Gryffindor Dorms (40452) set. It makes perfect sense considering the modularity prevalent in the more recent LEGO Harry Potter releases. You can add the Gryffindor Dorms to mix and match with Polyjuice Potion Mistake (76386) and its fellow sets to customize your Hogwarts Castle interior. Remember, this GWP comes free with every total LEGO Harry Potter product purchase above $100. Catch it from October 25 to November 7, both in-store and on LEGO Shop@Home.
