LEGO Harry Potter 76405 Hogwarts Express - Collectors' Edition Officially Revealed | August 2022

It's been rumoured for quite a while but the next LEGO Harry Potter D2C has been officially revealed after the first leak earlier today. 76405 Hogwarts Express Collectors' Edition will be available from 31st August 2022 with 5129 pieces retailing for $499.99. This makes it the most expensive LEGO Harry Potter set yet and the third biggest based on piece count. Along with the price and piece count are three light bricks, a moveable train and 20 Minifigures.

The set itself obviously consists of the beautiful red Hogwarts Express, a built track section, and platform 9 3/4. The built track is similar to the track from 10277 Crocodile Locomotive but is built with a base of black bricks. This track section is over a metre long (118cm to be precise) with the platform right next to it about eight studs high to allow passengers to board the train.

On the platform is a full arch and two half arches to the right and left in the typical architecture of Kings Cross Station. On the central arch is a tile with the quote from Albus Severus Potter: "Dad, what if I am put in Slytherin?". A small data plate with the most important information about the train can then be attached to the base of the station and there's also an 8x16 printed tile featuring a ticket to Hogwarts.

The Hogwarts Express itself is just a few studs shorter than the platform The train consists of the well-known red steam engine with a coal car and only one passenger car. This has a total of four red train doors and three compartments which shows various scenes from all eight films. Within each compartment is a light brick to better show off each magical scene.

One compartment is the iconic scene where the trio first met in the film. Another quote is attached to a tile from Hermione: "Has anyone seen a toad?". In the second compartment is the dementor attack from the third film with a matching quote from Ron: "I think...someone's coming aboard!".

Meanwhile, the third compartment is based on the sixth film where Luna comes to save Harry after his confrontation with Draco Malfoy. The quote this time is from Luna: "Wreckspurts! Your head is full of them." Of course, this compartment, like the other two compartments, can have its quote removed to make it more playable and you can even create your own scenes from the film.

However, the set is finished there as a whopping 20 Minifigures are included. These include Draco Malfoy in his black suit from Half-Blood Prince, Luna Lovegood, Harry (Philosopher's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban, Half-Blood Prince), Ron (Philosopher's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban), Hermione (Philosopher's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban), Remus Lupin, a dementor, the trolley lady, a conductor, a Ravenclaw student and a Hufflepuff Student.

Meanwhile, the following five Minifigures will most likely remain exclusive to the set for some time: An adult Harry Potter with beard stubble, an adult Ginny and their children James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna. No Power Up functions are included but with the Hogwarts Express being so big these can be easily added if needed. The train already has some functions anyway as by turning the lever you'll replicate the motion of a steam train.
