LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle D2C Set in 2018?

Back in August, I did a post reporting that we may be seeing the return of LEGO Harry Potter in 2018 which included sets as well as a Collectible Minifigure Series. There’s a new rumor floating around that we could also be seeing a direct-to-consumer set (71043) for the theme. One logical suggestion is that this D2C Harry Potter set may feature Hogwarts Castle similar to what LEGO did last year with The Disney Castle (71040). If this is true, the large scale Hogwarts can show various rooms or memorable scenes from the eight films.

Of course this is only currently a rumor so take it with a grain of salt until something official is announced by LEGO. Note that the image above is from the 2010 set which was one of my first reviews on The Brick Fan. How time flew by.

LEGO Harry Potter Coming Back in 2018?

There are some very interesting rumors coming out of Eurobricks of a theme that has sort of ended but may be coming back in 2018. The reliable Sir von Lego has said that LEGO Harry Potter will be sets coming next year and there’s also a hint from rob-ot5000 saying there might also be a Collectible Minifigure Series coming out of Harry Potter as well. There was also mentioning of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter but how that ties in to this whole thread remains a mystery. It is worth noting that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter encapsulates everything from the films and the books by J.K. Rowling and Fantastic Beasts 2 will be coming out next year as well so there might be sets and/or minifigures for both the original Harry Potter series and Fantastic Beasts.

The return of LEGO Harry Potter is some very exciting news since the last time we had official LEGO sets, besides LEGO Dimensions, was in 2011 which is the time I returned to LEGO. Keep in mind that these are just rumors and are not confirmed until LEGO announces it.

LEGO Harry Potter Collection Coming to Playstation 4?

PlayStationLifeStyle.net is reporting that the Brazil Rating Board had a listing (now removed) for a LEGO Harry Potter Collection will be coming to PlayStation 4. The collection is reported to include both LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 as well as LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. There was no mentioning of when the LEGO Harry Potter Collection will be released but the Harry Potter Universe has been the talk for the past few months with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play and book along with the Fantastic Beasts movie coming out soon. If the PS4 collection does come out, I wouldn’t be surprised if it also comes with some kind of exclusive LEGO minifigure or build.

LEGO Hints at Harry Potter Expansion Packs for LEGO Dimensions

Over on the LEGO Dimensions Twitter account, they just tweeted a cryptic video of a minifigure with the quote “Only I can live forever. I’m a true Riddle. Who am I?” If you’re a big fan of Harry Potter, you would know that Lord Voldemort said the first sentence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and his real name is Tom Riddle. This can only suggest that LEGO will be announcing Harry Potter expansion sets for LEGO Dimensions this coming Thursday. Whether or not it will be new Harry Potter minifigures remains to be seen but stay tuned in the next couple of days for the official announcement.
