Following the reveal of one of the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Aragog’s Lair (75950) last week, LEGO has also pulled the veil from another impressive set, this time under the Fantastic Beasts subtheme. This also comes as a direct follow-up to the previously announced Grindelwald’s Escape (75951) set last March. Featuring Newt and his mischievous Niffler among other things, we now have their official images in LEGO form, together with the rest of the LEGO Wizarding World Fantastic Beasts Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures (75952) set. LEGO has made the announcement via its social media channels (via Facebook and Twitter) where we can glimpse at the said set.
The fact that the set ingeniously housed some of the creatures that we see in the first film is pretty impressive. The play features and opportunities of this set leave plenty for one’s imagination. The designer who came up with this idea of having an ordinary-looking, brick-built suitcase filled with magical creatures from the film (the Thunderbird, Erumpent, and Occamy) and in near minifigure scale really deserves a pat on the back. If there is one mid-priced LEGO Wizarding World set that I want to have first, then this is got to be it. Not to mention the fact that Niffler is also included in this set. Minifigures in this set includes: Queenie Goldstein, Tina Goldstein, Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski.
Check out 75952’s official images below, together with its respective product description. Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures (75952) will be available beginning August 1st. Thanks to Hoth Bricks and The Brothers Brick for the heads-up.
