Expand your very own wizarding world of Harry Potter™!
No need to pass through the Leaky Cauldron. Now even Muggles can shop in Diagon Alley by building this fantastically magical set that includes 3 extensively detailed buildings and 11 minifigures! Join Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger as they shop for their Hogwarts school supplies. Visit Ollivanders, Borgin and Burkes, and Gringotts Bank. Each Diagon Alley building is realistically detailed. Ollivanders offers an extensive selection of wands, storage shelves and a step ladder that allows Ollivander to gather wands from the top floor. The front desk has an “exploding” function for those inconvenient times when a spell goes awry. Borgin and Burkes includes a scary skeleton, “glow-in-the-dark” elements, a fireplace attached to the Floo Network and a Vanishing Cabinet that Dark wizards might use to sneak into Hogwarts. Gringotts Bank is an impressive two-story building with large double doors, and can be opened completely into one large building or closed to create one smaller building. The bank’s interior features a removable vault, along with the Philosopher’s Stone, a clerk’s desk, a chandelier and ‘wonky’ support pillars. Includes 11 minifigures: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, each with magic wand; Rubeus Hagrid, equipped with his pink umbrella; Fred and George Weasley; 2 Gringotts goblins; Mr. Ollivander; Lucius Malfoy (with Death Eater disguise); Fenrir Greyback; and 4 new, decorated owls.

Man, I wasn't planning on getting any of the new HP sets (I have a bunch of the prervious sets) but THIS ONE LOOKS SWEET! Man, I am truly excited about this one. I just might have to pick up some of the new ones now. If only the Hogwarts castle was a bit taller and bigger like the other ones....

Can anyone else see the video, youtube keeps telling me it is private.

The set looks great, $150 is a lot, but I may get this anyways.

Holy crap that is amazing! I can't believe it, they really went above and beyond what I'd expect from a Diagon Alley set. :O

Am I the only one who has never read any of the books or seen any of the movies?

Anyway, that really does look like a pretty cool set, even if the characters are completely unknown to me.

Ahhhh,

So we finally get Fred and George. Or is it George and Fred?

And finally some nice non-Hogwart's buildings. The original bank set was pretty much a joke. Now, its great. The original dark art's store, not a joke but uninspired. Now, it has a curved skylight. Awesome.

I feel Lego really raised the bar on this series of sets. Compare the burrows to the shrieking shack. Compare the current Hogwarts to the first one. Compare the classroom sets, which I liked, to the sets we get now.

If there is no follow on to this series at least this set plugs some holes in our minifigure collection and takes us out on a good note.

This set is absolutely incredible. I wish it would be available before the holidays, but I'm thrilled to get it whenever it comes out.

Add me to the group as well. Still, that doesn't diminish how cool of a set this is. Those new fluted round bricks work just wonderfully for those ionic columns on the bank. I wish I could just buy that part of the set.
