New ‘Harry Potter’ Diagon Alley LEGO Set Releasing Tomorrow, September 1


Harry Potter and LEGO fans do I have some fun news for you!  There is a very large and very incredible Harry Potter set releasing from LEGO on September 1st. LEGO® Harry Potter™ Diagon Alley™ (75978) will be $399.99 and it’s a huge set at 5,544 pieces!

The set measures over 11″ tall, 40″ wide and 5″ deep.

This is their most detailed Diagon Alley set to date. It’s bigger and better with 14 mini-figures, including four exclusive figures!

Enter the world of Diagon Alley™

Tap a brick in the wall behind the Leaky Cauldron pub and enter the world of Diagon Alley™, where wizards and witches find their potions and Hogwarts students stock up on school supplies like cauldrons, broomsticks and of course, wands. Measuring over a meter wide, this epic model is filled with authentic movie details and a menagerie of 14 minifigures, including four exclusive new characters!

The four exclusive characters are:

 Gilderoy Lockhart, Florean Fortescue, Lucius Malfoy and the Daily Prophet photographer.

The four buildings will include 6 shops:

  • Ollivanders™ Wand Shop
  • Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
  • Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor
  • Scribbulus™ Writing Implements
  • Flourish & Blotts™
  • Quality Quidditch™ Supplies

The most detailed LEGO® Harry Potter™ Diagon Alley™ set yet

Fans of Harry Potter™ will love discovering the magnificent window displays and intriguing interiors of Diagon Alley™, London’s most magical secret shopping street. This remarkable set captures incredible detail from many of the Harry Potter™ films and can be built four different ways, including closed into a real alley for role-playing stories filled with intrigue and mystery. It’s also compatible with the LEGO® Modular Buildings series, for even more world-building fun.

If you are interested in the set I would start checking around midnight EST for it to go live. They haven’t given a time other than September 1, so that’s what I would go by.

This set is amazing!
