About this deal

Information obtained via these service cookies may also be processed further for page analysis purposes. I am pleased such furnishings were added though and the stove is removable to create more room for minifigures, if you choose. This half-Kneazle cat looks reasonable and I love his moody expression, reflecting Crookshanks' sometimes haughty personality.

Offering the same balance between exterior display and interior play as any number of other LEGO Harry Potter sets, 76408 12 Grimmauld Place takes things to a new level with a smart and unexpected play feature that pays true homage to the books and films that inspired it.The approach of only molding the bristles also makes the part much more flexible – I guarantee someone will be able to make engine plumes from these – and there is an anti-stud on the bottom offering more attachment possibilities. Even Yaxley, who makes a memorable menacing impression and plays a bit of an important role, isn't the most integral character to the broad story.

Hand-in-hand with the design, playability feels severely compromised by the design of the interior rooms. This example comprises a flexible tube, a new medium nougat angled accessory holder and a printed ear, stretching from the top floor to the dining room. It’s now June and here’s our personal review of 76408 LEGO 12 Grimmauld Place from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. A sizeable nine are included in the set, namely: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Sirius Black, Nymphadora Tonks, Kreacher, Molly Weasley, Fred Weasley, George Weasley and Kingsley Shacklebolt.They are used to complete the two side buildings (bag 6 does the left seen from the back while 7 does the right). I think once someone makes it larger and increases the overall size of each room there’s a lot more to work with (obviously).

As a brief comment on the build process and experience, The Ministry has quite a tedious and repetitive build, as if it wasn't obvious from looking at the set itself. Some have expressed concern that this design would feel fragile, but I have found it adequately strong. Ingot pieces and half-stud spacing with jumper plates give the steps appealing texture and spacing, while several bright colors help to tile the pieces of the mechanism that will be hidden. The sticker sheet looks nice and crisp and I’m in particular impressed by the family tree of the Black family.Unlike with the Ministry, you could potentially display Grimmauld Place from the back because it has a doll-house style interior with lots of details that ostensibly fit together. Of course, that limited space is also problematic and reflects the surprisingly small size of this structure. Both of these scenes take place in their own massive rooms in the basement level of the Ministry, and there's no room to put minifigures with them anyway, so they feel quite shoehorned in. Immerse yourself in the magical allure of Sirius Black’s room, the iconic Black family tree tapestry, and witness Ron and Hermione practice playing the piano.
