Lego Mania Fan Review

Diagon Alley has become the centre of mystical happenings with adults and children feeling the streets of London in hope for a secret passage or magical wall. This model is colourful, creative and filled with character. The life comes to this piece because of the resemblance and effort placed by the creators to keep it true to the London vibe and still capturing the excitement and mystery Diagon Alley. As a fan watching the movie we are shown a very unassuming walkway, leading to an unassuming wall, leading to a world of magic and wonder. Lego has attempted to capture this with the vibrant colours of the buildings in a seemingly normal London esq street, however, opening up Diagon Alley you are awakened to wizardy, spells, wands and potions. This is a beautiful depiction of the books and movies and a great model to build and play with family.

Enter the world of Diagon Alley

Tap a brick in the wall behind the Leaky Cauldron pub and enter the world of Diagon Alley, where wizards and witches find their potions and Hogwarts students stock up on school supplies like cauldrons, broomsticks and of course wands. Measuring over a metre wide, this epic model is filled with authentic film details and a menagerie of 14 minifigures, incuding four exclusive new characters.

Customer Reviews of This Build

This model is coming in hot at a rating of 4.8 out of 5 in Amazon and 4.4 out of 5 on Lego. This is a very detailed piece of Harry Potter Lego that requires attention, patience and commitment. It possesses a lot of stickers which can be complicated and overwheling, leaving you reaching for the instructions often. However, the minifigures are really well designed and the product holds heaps and heaps of character.

In Summary

This is an unusual one in summary, it has loads of layers, loads of character and a great experience for building. It is tricky at parts, which sounds negative, but that's the fun of building Lego, if its easy, its boring. Where I find this unusual is where to categorise it, is it for collectors - yes, sort of, and is it for a family - yes, sort of? It is an awesome model however, true to lego style it is colourful and creative but also very professional and real to the movies. It is exactly what magic and wizardry should be, unknown, not understood and absolutely bonkers.

Keep on Building

Much Love
