Collectors edition pieces are always going to be popular, and the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express™ – Collectors' Edition 76405 Lego Set is no exception. Here you get more than 3000 pieces to build an impressive scale replica of the famous train. While other Hogwarts Express models are available, this one goes further with its attention to detail in the scale and scenes within.
Take A Trip With Harry Through Time
One of the most compelling features of this set is the chance to relive various scenes from the Harry Potter saga. Builders can create each location in detail so that each is permanently on display. This also means that families can have fun retelling the story with the different minifigures and features without taking the model apart and adapting it too much.
If we go through these chronologically, we start with the moment that the young Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet in the first train carriage. In the next carriage, we have the creepy moment the Dementor attacks the train and Professor Lupin comes to their rescue. Then there is a later moment in the final carriage where Luna finds a frozen Harry and gets him off the train in time. The final scene takes place on Platform 9 as an adult Harry and Ginny say goodbye to their own children, and the next generation gets ready for their own adventure. These scenes mean you also get 20 fun minifigures, with key characters in different forms to match the moment.
Build A Scale Model Of Impressive Proportions
To have this sort of grand celebration of the Hogwarts Express' role in Harry's life, you need a big train with enough carriages and room for all the decorative features. This 5129-piece model is 118cm long, so be prepared to make space for it in your collection. The platform scene runs alongside a portion of this. It is also 26cm high to house the figures and 20cm wide to make room for the corridors and compartments. Each carriage has just enough detail to make this a complex LEGO set for adults, but not too much to make it all overwhelming.
Of course, you also get the chance to build the iconic locomotive in all its glory. The completed train looks majestic with just the right dark red tone to the gleaming bricks. On its own, it would rival other models of "real" trains, making it a great choice for train enthusiasts as well as Harry Potter fans.
With so much to create and love about this new Harry Potter Hogwarts Express™ – Collectors' Edition 76405 Lego Set, it is sure to be a hit with many fan-bases.
