On Instagram yesterday, LEGO revealed some fantastic-looking minifigures for the upcoming Harry Potter CMF line. Here they are:
Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter
Ginny is holding chocolate ice cream from the Slug Club party. Harry is holding the Advanced Potion-Making book. I have no idea why they would post Harry like that. It makes his head look unnaturally shaped. Every other minifigure revealed looks like the actual figure and this one looks like a photoshop job that makes him look super terrible (except for Moaning Myrtle, she suffers in the same way).
Griphook and Bellatrix LeStrange
Fred Weasley and George Weasley
Moaning Myrtle and Luna Lionhead Lovegood
Kingsley Shacklebolt and Albus Dumbledore
Neville Longbottom and Pomona Sprout
Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley
Where are James Potter and Lily Evans Potter?
These were the two they didn’t highlight individually, which is kind of dumb, because a) they’re in the main group shot up top, b) it’s not a big secret that they’re in the set, and c) it’s not a big secret who Harry’s parents are. It could be that they’ll be the hard-to-get figures, maybe 1 each per box? I would seriously hate for this to be true. This is just a theory of mine but I can’t fathom why they wouldn’t include them in the social media push other than just the composite image.
They should be available soonish. I’m gonna take a wild guess and say September 1, along with all of the other HP stuff.
Thanks to our discord channel residents and extra big thanks to my 10-year-old Harry Potter-loving nerd daughter for filling in the blanks.
