Next up on my review of the LEGO Harry Potter banner sets, we take a look at the Ravenclaw House Banner (76411). It has 305 pieces and retails for $34.99.
We have three minifigures in this set, Luna Lovegood, Cho Chang, and Michael Corner. Luna has on the black robes with some of the inner clothes showing at the top. Her double-sided head shows her with a smile on one side and the other with her Spectrespecs on.
Cho has a striped blue sweater and some tan pants. Her double-sided head shows her with a smile on one side and a concerned look on the other.
Lastly, we have Michael Corner who has pretty minor roles in the movie. He is shown wearing an open gray jacket with a white shirt. His double-sided head shows him with a smile on one side and a laughing expression on the other.
Although not a minifigure, we do have a Cornish Pixie that is in a dark transparent blue mold.
Like with all the banner sets, the build starts off with the frame. Right in the middle, you have the fireplace and mantle along with a sticker shield of the Ravenclaw emblem.
To the left of that, we have a window showing Rowena Ravenclaw right above a bookshelf. The opposite side also has more bookshelves with a book clipped at the top.
The left banner flap doesn’t really have much on it besides another area for books.
The right banner flap has more things on it including a spot for Ravenclaw’s Diadem.
When you close the flaps, you have a nice printed Ravenclaw emblem on thee oval piece.
For the removable accessories, there isn’t much just a couple of sofas and lamps.
Like with all the Banner sets, the main selling point of the sets are the lenticular sheets. Before in my review of the Slytherin House Banner (76410), I said that it wasn’t very good but that has been dethroned by Ravenclaw. You have a main window portrait of Rowena Ravenclaw but that’s the most interesting one. The rest that you can see is the fireplace and some clouds.
This is bad because the lenticular sheet has a lot more details that you can’t see due to how the set is built. What you couldn’t see is the messages behind the curtains, a crystal ball showing what looks like the Grim, and a book with blue flames.
Out of the three banner sets that I’ve reviewed so far, the LEGO Harry Potter Ravenclaw House Banner (76411) is probably the worst one out of them. It just doesn’t have anything that makes it stand out besides the minifigures. The lenticular sheet is good but with the way the set is built, you can’t see at least half of it. At this point, stickers would’ve been a better choice. At least there’s a Cornish Pixie and you can never have enough of those.
Thank you to LEGO for sending in this set for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
