As many of you know, Shaun is very passionate about business and finances. My passions aren’t quite as professional as him, but I do have just as strong of passions as he does. As many of you know, I love Lego sets and Shaun told me to write about what I am passionate about. So, I am going to review my latest Lego build.
I have had this set for a couple months waiting to build it. The more recent sets have been a modular type build more than a set structure. This has made things more interesting, because you are able to have more freedom with how you want the set to look. Plus, it is easier to put the sets together and combine them into bigger creations. Once I am done with this set, I have one more to build to complete all of the current modular builds.
This set is the Chamber of Secrets set with 1176 pieces in it. It contains Gilderoy Lockhart’s office, a mini great hall and the door and statue from the Chamber of Secrets. Another set, The Polyjuice Potion, contains the bathroom that creates the entrance for the Chamber. This set is also apart of the 20th Anniversary series, which includes a golden figure and in this case it is Voldemort.
This set contain 10 regular minifigs and some of them 2 of them we haven’t seen before. We have Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Colin Creevey, Tom Riddle, Gilderoy Lockhart, Professor Sinistra, Albus Dumbledore, and Nearly Headless Nick. The two new ones are Colin Creevey and Professor Sinistra, who teaches Astronomy at Hogwarts.
The build overall wasn’t very complicated, but the Harry Potter ones are always easier builds anyway. My biggest blessing for these sets compared to the ones that came out in 2018-2020 are the design change on the spires on the castle points. They are more cone shaped and flexible compared to the skin point that I seem to always knock off while I am moving them.
I am excited to see what direction the newer sets are going to take. I love the modular aspects of these and I am having fun putting all of them together in any fashion I would like to. These along with the book classrooms have changed the world of Lego to me, by allowing you to change how the set is displayed. This has made me keep moving my sets around and changing how I want them displayed since I have options now.
I may post more of these, I am not sure yet, but I enjoyed typing about one of my passions and putting some research into it. Let me know if you liked this or if there something more I should do!
