About this deal

Such details are missing from the sides, although these medium nougat 1x6x5 panels look reasonable and the chimney pots on the roof are equally effective. In the room above the kitchen the main feature is the piano, where Hermione was teaching Ron playing Für Elise in the Deathly Hallows. I will here add a photo of the beds – not because they look awesome, but to state that these must be some of the worst beds that LEGO has designed in recent years. Its four offices all share the same external structure, and while interior details set them apart, they are still a bit of a slog to get through.

Kreacher's downturned ears seem similarly effective, alongside wrinkles and narrowed eyes which convey his suspicious nature.This looks to be Kreacher’s living space judging by the packed area and the printed curtain lifting to uncover a certain portrait. The design and colors remain true to the source material, with the “traitors” to the Black family scratched out of the tree, although there should be a skull for Regulus instead of a regular head.

I am regularly perplexed by minor design decisions like these in the Harry Potter line, as well as the choices for which characters should receive new face prints and which shouldn't.

Yet, there are tons of Harry in a very similar blue jacket that would surely confuse Voldemort on a cloudy night. Yet another Harry is hard to get excited over, in particular when its torso printing is pretty minimal. Moreover, the shape appears more accurate than the existing element, which predates LEGO Harry Potter.Grimmauld Place has a current lifespan of 19 months, based on the average lifespan of other sets in this theme, which is 14 months, this set is at risk for retiring in the coming months. It may be easy to dismiss the core functionality of the set – that the house effortlessly moves in and out from between its neighbouring properties – as a gimmick, but that can only be so until you build it and then get to play with it, at which point that’s all you’ll be doing, for just how effective and fun it is. The Ministry's sections are modular, meaning they can be rearranged like in the image below, or in further different ways. But this house is also under the protection of the Fidelius Charm, which means wizards can’t see it either! But it does look cool and for me at least, it is tempting to get another one to supersize it – similar to what I did with the Beauxbatons’ Carriage.
