The rumor mill is running again, and this time with more intel on this year’s LEGO Harry Potter sets. A couple of weeks ago, we reported that five LEGO Harry Potter sets (3 for HP and 2 for Fantastic Beasts, to be more accurate) will be released as part of its summer wave of offerings this August. On top of that, it was also said that these sets will be accompanied by an official LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigure series, which will also be released during the same time period. Thanks to word from some reliable sources over at Eurobricks, we now have a tentative list of possible Harry Potter characters that made their way as part of LEGO’s next CMF series. Here’s what we know so far.
The year 2018 has a few milestone celebrations across multiple subjects and genres, but here’s one for LEGO enthusiasts that they’ll really dig. It concerns the 40th anniversary of one of the innovations developed by LEGO to further enhance the brick-construction experience: minifigures. Yes, LEGO-people are now four decades old.
LEGO as a brand has long since transcended their original toy products to become a prominent presence on a multimedia scale. Aside from the animated TV series, the direct-video movies and the cinematic blockbusters, LEGO has a good run in the print media as well.
We’re just counting the days before we officially welcome 2018, and with more than 120 new LEGO sets to debut on January 1 (much of it has been made available already across toy store outlets such as Toys R Us), it looks like LEGO is on full steam ahead with more new sets slated for the second half of the year. We recently had a glimpse of the latest 2018 LEGO Speed Champions and Star Wars sets, and now we’re receiving reports from the rumor mill that another beloved license and film franchise is expected to make waves this upcoming year.
