It’s time to hone your squeezing and feeling skills because LEGO’s next blind-bagged minifigures collection is arriving with 22 new characters from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If only “Aparecium”, the revealing charm, worked on tiny foil bags.

Drawing from the Harry Potter books and movies, the new collection includes minifigure versions of Ron, Hermione and Harry in school robes; Draco in Quidditch robes; Dumbledore; Luna Lovegood; Neville Longbottom; Cho Chang; Dean Thomas; Lord Voldemort; Dobby; Cedric Diggory; Mad-Eye Moody; Professors Trelawney and Flitwick; and an alternate, but no less fabulous version of Potter in pyjamas and his flashy invisibility cloak.
And with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hitting theatres later this year, LEGO’s also included lesser-known characters (at least for now) such as Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, Tina and Queenie Goldstein, Credence Barebone, and Percival Graves in this new collection.
The lack of Jude Law’s younger, slicker Dumbledore is disappointing, but there’s undoubtedly more Crimes of Grindelwald sets en route later this year.
The collection is set to arrive in the US August 1, and will set you back $US4 ($5) each. The Australian release date and pricing have not yet been confirmed, but it’s a safe bet they’ll be around that mark.
