Earlier this week, we reported on the possibility that LEGO Harry Potter fans might be getting their hands busy anytime soon. Rumor has been circulating around lately among LEGO fan forums that the new LEGO Harry Potter sets will have an earlier release date. It was said that these much-awaited LEGO HP sets will be available as early as July instead of August. Now the rumor can finally be placed to rest since shop.LEGO.com has made it official that the new LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter sets will be available beginning July 1. LEGO Shop@Home even updated its site by adding several new images and their respective official product descriptions on some of these sets.
This is a very much welcomed move from LEGO, and fans are really eager to have their try on these sets. As of to date, we only have sets 75953 to 75956 currently listed on LEGO’s online store and we are still waiting to see the rest of the Wizarding World sets. I guess it will not take long from now since LEGO has already uploaded to their servers the official, high resolution images of some these sets like those from Aragog in the Forbidden Forest (75950) and Grindelwald’s Escape (75951).
In any case, July 1st is just around the corner, and like the rest of you guys, I’m equally excited to see and build these sets. Check out these images and their corresponding descriptions, whenever available.
