ICYMI: LEGO Harry Potter 2023 Sets Officially Revealed!

LEGO Harry Potter 2023

In case you missed it, LEGO.com has officially revealed its first wave of LEGO Harry Potter 2023 sets scheduled to be released on March 1, 2023 – two of which are a long time coming.  It’s great to see that we will have an official LEGO set that depicts the Fiendfyre escape scene from Deathly Hallows Part 2. And after 18 years, we are seeing the return of the Merpeople in minifigure form, as we saw them from the Goblet of Fire.

On top of these, we are also getting 4 sets that put the spotlight on the activities in the individual quarters of the four houses of Hogwarts. LEGO even added a bit of magic to its design by adding a lenticular feature on each of the set’s backboards giving it a 3D-like illusion of the windows and paintings. And on top of these, we’re getting plenty of new Harry Potter minifigures as well.

Read on for more details about these first offerings of LEGO Harry Potter 2023 sets, and don’t forget to mark your calendars on March 1st.
