LEGO Announce Six New 'Harry Potter' Sets - And They Look Siriusly Amazing

LEGO Announce Six New 'Harry Potter' Sets - And They Look Siriusly Amazing

During lockdown, we've been reverting back to childhood games as a way to pass the hours. From jigsaw puzzles, to Sims and *plenty* of Nintendo games, we knew they'd come in handy one day.

Now, LEGO is about to release six new Harry Potter sets and they've got lockdown entertainment written all over them.

The sets are based on scenes from Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and feature the likes of Hogwarts as well as the Forbidden Forest.

They're set to be released on Monday 1st June, so while we do have a few weeks left to wait, it's definitely something to look forward to.

There are six new sets to choose from. These include the Hogwarts Room of Requirement, which is priced at £17.99 and features Harry, Hermione and Luna Lovegood as will as two Patronus minifigures - a hare for Luna and an Otter for Hermione.

It has 193 pieces and is suitable for ages seven and up.

Next up is a set based on 4 Privet Drive, featuring a near identical toy house complete with Harry, Ron, Dudley Dursley, Vernon Dursley, Petunia Dursley and Dobby minifigures.

The 64.99 set - which has 797 pieces and is available for ages eight and up - also includes Harry's under the stairs cupboard and Ron's collectible flying Ford Anglia. The car comes with a chain attached to its hook so Harry can be freed and returned to Hogwarts!

There's also a Forbidden Forest set, featuring Harry, Hermione, and Dolores Umbridge as well as two 2 centaur figures and a posable giant Grawp. Inside the large tree the trio will find a selection of accessories - a lantern, bone and turkey leg. This set features 253 pieces and is suitable for kids aged eight and up.

If that wasn't enough, the Weasley family home will also feature in the £89.99 set, Attack On the Burrow. With eight minifigures - Ron, Ginny, Arthur and Molly Weasley, Nymphadora Tonks, Bellatrix Lestrange, Fenrir Greyback and Harry, the huge Burrow opens up so players can recreate one of the most dramatic scenes of Harry Potter ever.

With a whopping 1,047 pieces, it should keep you busy for some time.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Harry Potter collection without Hedwig. The £34.99 set features a huge brick-build model of the owl in flight, with a wingspan of over 34cm.

After players have constructed Hedwig - who is delivering a very important letter - a handle allows the owl's wings to move up and down in flight. The 630-piece set (suitable for those aged 10 and over) also features a Harry figure and a mini Hedwig toy.

Last but not least (in fact, this one's our favourite) the new collection is offering up a Hogwarts Astronomy Tower, complete with magical castle and a series of enchanting rooms including Master Horace Slughorn's classroom and the Ravenclaw dormitory.

The 971 piece set also features eight minifigures including Harry, Hermione, Horace Slughorn, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Ron and Draco Malfoy.

We're setting an alarm for 1st June. Now all we have to decide is which one to play first?
