In celebration of the new Lego Harry Potter set, the Lego Group is offering fans the chance to play, build and stay on a real Lego Hogwarts Express train.
The new Hogwarts Express Collector’s Edition measures 118cm long. Rich in details both inside and out, the model includes the steam engine, the coal car, the passenger car featuring light up bricks, and a spectacular replica of Platform 9 ¾, which can be attached in several different places. The full train sits on a track-display-base and includes a turning lever to activate the wheels.
This set features an impressive twenty Lego minifigures inspired by four fan-favourite film moments, including Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and a never before seen before adult Lego Harry Potter.
Fans can uncover iconic scenes and quotes from the movies that all link to the train or the platform as they build a magical Lego Harry Potter world. The set will transport them through the journey from when Harry, Ron and Hermione first meet in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, through to when Albus Severus Potter goes to Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Marcos Bessa, Lego designer commented: “The Harry Potter movies ignite that feeling of magic within us all. When we were working on this set, we wanted to bring to life different moments from across the movies. Whether your favourite is the original trio meeting on the train or moments from movies later in the series, this set really brings back spellbinding memories from all of our favourite parts of the Harry Potter films.”
Supporting the launch of the new line, a competition will offer fans the chance to take part in a magical adventure along one of the United Kingdom’s most beautiful heritage railway lines. The one-night experience also includes playing with the new Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express set, a movie screening and a luxury stay in a bespoke carriage.
The Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express Collector’s Edition set is available from 31st August 2022. More details about the competition can be found at www.lego.com/howarts-express.
