LEGO is about to cast a spell on its fans. The toy manufacturer is set to release a new line of collectible Harry Potter minifigures, which includes characters from the film series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The minifigs will debut this summer as blind bag items.
The full series includes Harry Potter (in school robes), Ron Weasley (in school robes), Hermione Granger (in school robes), Draco Malfoy (in Quidditch robes), Harry Potter (in pajamas with invisibility cloak), Albus Dumbledore, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Cho Chang, Dean Thomas, Lord Voldemort, Dobby, Cedric Diggory, Mad-Eye Moody, Professor Flitwick and Professor Trelawney. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them minifigures, on the other hand, feature Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, Tina Goldstein, Queenie Goldstein, Credence Barebone and Percival Graves.
Since 2001, LEGO has released Harry Potter-themed sets like "Escape from Privet Drive," "Hogwarts Castle," "Quidditch Match," "Hagrid's Hut" and many more. The latest minifigures offer an updated take on the original characters, with the addition of Fantastic Beasts characters like Newt Scamander and Tina Goldstein. New LEGO Harry Potter sets are also in development, including new takes on "Hogwarts Great Hall," "Whomping Willow" and "Quidditch Match."
LEGO's new collectible Wizarding World minifigures will go on sale starting August 1. They will be sold in blind bags for $3.99 each.
