Okay,Pretty Quick Little Intro to today's episode, let's jump into this week'stopic, no, if even following the show for a long time, you know I have anumber of recurring Mani series within Brikology as a whole, of course, StarWars, a good number of star wars, episodes each season and en Jagoadventurer stuff, like that, and one of my recurring series now, which is goingto be the third episode in this series, is Harry Potter. I did in season two. Italked about the first Terry Potter movie in Season Three. I talked aboutthe second Harry Potter movie. I'm not sure why I didn't start this off withseason one, but of course it is now season for brickology, which meanswe're going to talk about the third Harry Potter movie and I'm going tocover all of the Lego. Harry platter sets for the next five seasons ofprecology going through each indidividual film in the sets based offof them. So let's introduce you to Lego Harry Potter and the prisoner ofascabant. Now I'm really excited to talk about this one, because I love theprisoner f basket band. The Pirsoer of Askiin personally is my favorite HarryPotter story, all around, which also means it's my faorite Harry putter bookand it's my favorite Harry Potter movie...

...and Frankly, it's not even really. Thatclose, I mean I like all of Harry Potter. I think all of the Harry Pottermovies in books are good to some degree, but the only one, especially movie thatI would say is downright fantatastic, Heis, the prisoner of Aske Ban and themovie was released in two thousand and four. This is the first Harry plottermovie. I remember watching and being a little bit frightened when I was a kid,because I was only seven years old at the time of release of this movie andthere's some pretty dark and creepy stuff in here, and that's because thismovie really kind of started off the change for the Harry putter franchise.They actually changed directors for this film and for the series. For thefirst time, the first two Harry ployter movies were directed by ChristopherColumbus. No, not the oceanic explorer Chris Columbus, the director who didhome alone, who dids very kitty like movies. He went on to direct to youknow one of the Percy Jackson Movies does very child framly family friendlytype films, the guy that brought on the direct prisoner of Aski band, isAlfonzo Koran. Now Alphanza Koran is an incredible director, so much so thathe's one not one but two Academy Awards Oscars for directing for making gravityand Ruma, which are both really good films. Afons of Koron is amazing. Imean he's seriously a fantastic director and by far the best directorin this series- and he basically came in changed up Harry Potter and reallychanged the tone of this series. It was a little bit more dark and bleak, andliterally you can see this in the warner brother's logo. An the first twoHarry Potter movies. The Warner brother's logo is Gol, let the normallogo- and this movie it's very gray, everything's kind of cloudy and bleakand misty, and I really like that and it fits the tone of this movie, eventhough it's actually still only rated PG, and I just think this film is leapsand bounds better than the first two Harry Potter movies. It remains thebest movie in this series to this date. It has so many of my favorite scenesfrom the entire series. The nightbu sequence is incredible. I absolutelylove the scene where Harry is riding on buckbeak over the lake next to hogwartzs. That scene is gorgeous. I love this movie. I watch this movie at leastonce a year. This is a fanttastic film and the Lego sets throu released in twothousand and four. They made a pretty large wave to coincide. The with therelease of this movie to Tos and four is also an interesting year for Lego.That is the first year ever lego started using flesh colored faces. Sofor those of you who might not be completely aware of this, I mean it'sbeen going on for seventeen years now, so it seems like an afterthought thesedays, but back in the day, every single lego figure, even from thimgs, likestar wars or Harry Potter, were yellow now only license. Tems have fleshcolored faces and unlicensed themes like an INJACO. Have the original,yellow, color skin for lego figures very, very interesting. I'm notentirely sure what spurred this decision, besides, maybe just makingthe characters, look a little bit more realistic and obviously it makes race alittle bit easier to deal with with Lego figures, but this is the firstyear that Lego introduced, flesh, colored, Lego figures. This is one ofthe first big lions to actually feature flesh, colored, Lego figures, also forsome reason. At this time, leco made all of their boxes. Look the exact sane.They all had this, like circular blue, just completely playing a blue borderwith whatever logo was for the theme. The boxes from this generation of Legofrom like thosand, three thosand and four are horrible. They look absolutelyhorrible. I have no idea why lega decide to do this. If you don't knowwhat I'm talking about Googlea, because there'r star war sets from O for HarryPotter, set city set just sets from so many different themes that have theexact same box, art and it looks so boring and confusing. Luckily, this didnot last long Toosan, five, even the...

Gobet of firehair putter sets hadcompletely different boxes. Thank God. I have no idea what Lego was thinkingabout was that, but all of that information out of the way we coun nowjump in and start talking about, the Lego, Harry Potter and the prisoner ofASCA band sets starting off with the sets from the initial wave in twothousand and four. This is actually a very nice sized wave and has a reallygood variety of sets and I'm very happy with how lego produce this wave overowand. I think it's one of the better single Harry Potter waves they've evermade. So, let's start talking about them. The smallest set from this waveis called DRACO's encounter with buckbeak. In my notes, I wrote that itwas eightydollars. It is a Typo. This is an eight dollar set. Don't give mewrong. Eight dollar set with thirty six pieces, so big oof on the price orpiece, but the figures included here. Of course, Drako mouthfoy- and this isa rare Harry Potter- set to not include Harry Potter, the titular character ofthe series you just cul drink a mafoy in thi set, and you also get a printedmonster book of monsters, which I love saying. I love that book in the moviean the Esen even just made that new promotional set of the Monster Book ofmonsters, which I didn't really talk about this episode, because it wasn'tlisten on bricksaid, but a very fun promotional set of a brickbelt versionof the monsters book of Monta, which is an iconic thing from this story. Alsoincluded with this set shockingly, you get buck beak, and this is a brand newmold for Buckbeak, and this is probably why this set had such a bad price forpiece, because Buckbek is a very unique and big mode on his own and honestlylook eightdollars to get buckbe back in the day. That is a fantastic deal. Iactually never got this set. I remember seeing this set at Lego, Land Windsorin two thousand and six so a couple years after it was released- and I waslike I should get that set, but I definitely bought a bionical instead,looking back, maybe not the best decision in the world, I should havegotten this sense of that bionical, but whatever, let's keep talking about thisset, so buckbeak is a very cool mold and he's a very similar mold to theclassic Lego Horse in the way that his neck can move up and down. Now he doeshave some kind of texture detail with his feathers and he has littleattachments on the side where ye can actually clip on his wings, which thewings were a new piece. I believe at the time as well, and they lookedpretty cool and, of course, a minifigure could ride on the back ofBuckbeka very necessary detail. As for the build of this set, you get aPumpkin Patch, which has a stone with some hidden secrets. Onside, which is avery typical old Lego, Harry Potter, set play feature. The PUMPKINS LEGO hadnot made the new pumpkin mold at this point in time. That's a fairly recentthing. Lego has done so they're, literally just orange minifake headpieces, but at this point in time, they're not even printed they're,literally just orange minifige head pieces extremely boring. You also get asmall tree, it's very short: It's like the height of a minifigure, so notreally even much of a tree. It's kind of just like a Bush that has an owl ontop and the build doesn't make a whole lot of sense because in the film whenDrako has his encounter with Buckbeak, it's very clearly in the forest, butthis is very clearly the Pumpkin Patch, where butbeak is in front of HagaritsHut, which is not where this scene takes place in the movie. So the billdoesn't make a whole lot of sense and they're kind of mixing up a couple ofdifferent buck beak scenes here. But you know what this set was clearly justdesigned to be a cheap way to get buck. Big and Liga doesn't normally includeawesome. Creature molds in tiny sets like this. So I applaud them for thisset even existing in the way it did the next set, which is only two dolars more,but has a lot more pieces with tendolar said that has a hundred nine pieces isHarry and the marauders map. The figures included here are, of course,Harry Potter, who includes a printed tile of the MRIDER's map, which is agreat piece to get, and you also got professor severus snape. Now I alreadymentioned that there are flesh figures of the first time in this line. However,my may man, Alan Ritman, as Snape, his...

...minifigure, is still glow in the dark.If you haven't listened to my previous to Harry potter, episodes of the show Imentioned how, for some reason, unanounced to, I think everybody in theworld they made snape glow in the dark, like literally his head, is a glow inthe dark piece he's a person in the movie. I mean he knows magic, but thereare no details in the film or snape starts glowing in the dark. It's a veryodd decision and I think it's so bizarre that it continued all the wayfor three years later into the third Harry Potter movie. We still have afreaking glow in the Tark snape head, it's just so bizarre, but that's kindof besides the point we can talk about the build of this set. It's a piece ofhogworts. Now hogwartz is still modular at this point in time and can be usedto expand the preexisting pieces of potcords Lego head made in the past.However, I think these pieces of Hog Gorts were definitely more detailed andquite fit in with this style. They establish with the last two waves fromthe other films, and there are two levels to this piece here. The topLebel has a statue on top and has a trap door, so Harry can fall throughand the bottom level doesn't really have anything going on. I'm not reallysure what this is supposed to represent. Honestly, in the film there is a hiddendoor that leads to hogs mead, which Harry sneaks to with the mbivilitycloak and the marauders map, which friend George, give to him, which iscool and all, but that doesn't really resemble this. This just seems like atrap like an actual trap door, so I'm honestly kind of confuse what's goingon here. I know what scenes is supposed to be in the movie. Harry is stickingaround the halls, modern Mradders map kind of trying to find Peter Pedagru,and he runs into snape. However, that doesn't really make for an interestingset. So Lego, Shoe Horn, Indan, inaccurate play feature so for bills.Right now, we're Ofer two on them being accurate, and hopefully that is notsomething that continues throughout this wave. Now the twenty dollar setfrom this wave is called Professor Lupan's classroom and it had onehundred and fifty six pieces. The figures included here, Aur ProfessorLoopan, which I love David Thuliz in his performance as this character. Ilove this character in the book, even though his name is so on the nose, loopand and he's literally just a freaking Warewolf, but this is one of my alltime: Favorite Harry Potter character. So it's nice to see him in Lego. Legofigure form you also get nevel long bottom and you get snape as a bocketand his head is still glow in the dark, but he did have some great printinghere and that figure was remate with a brick Tober peck a few years ago. Nowthey said is good. It's a very good set and get again, though, is a HarryPotter set without Harry. So strange I mean Lekeo. Hardly ever does that andwe already have two sets on our third set from this way and there's no Harryin this set, which is really weird to me and personally, I kind of feel likeHarry, should literally come in every single Lego, Harry Potter set thereason. Why is because, let's say you're a kit and you love Harry Potterbut you're on a tight budget, and you can only get one Harry Potter set. Whatif you bought this professoral loupans classroom? You got loop and nefel andSnape, but you don't get Harry Potter. I feel like that would be a bigdisappointment, especially conciderning. The fact that Harry Potter is in thisscene in the movie very strange thing that he's not included with this set.As for the build of this set, it is a small piece of the defense against thedark arts classroom and there's a very simple build. There's a bit of allusionwith the Iconic Dragon Skeleton that's on the roof of this classroom. It'snothing really to write home about, but overall it looks decent and, of coursethe Boggert is a swiveling panel piece with a nice print on it, and you canflip it around to reveal snape. On the...

...other side, this build is prettyaccurate to the scene from the movie, So this one is definitely better thanthe last two builds. We talked about from this way, there's yet anothertwenty dollar set from this way, which has one hundred and eighty eight pieces,and this is called thes serious black escape. The figures include here.Thankfully, our Harry Potter, serious black and his first ever appearance andlegofigure form, and you also get Buckbeacon Lego. Bravo, a blookbuckbeak came in two sets in this wave and he came in an eight dollar set anda twenty dollar set. He was not hard to find in this way, and that is fantasticbecause they really don't do that anymore. They really make you buy moreexpensive sets to get desireadble figures like that. So I love that hecame in such cheap set back in the day. Awso, including with this set, is thefirst appearance of a dementor in Lego form. Now the dementory back in the daythey were made with sand green skeleton pieces and had this weird, like Rod,leg piece to hold them up, not sure on the choice of saying green, I thinktheir skins to either be grey or black. I don't think San Green, quite worksand also their cloaks here were dark gray. Their cloak should be black. So,honestly, I don't think the colors for these dimentor figures were all thatgreat, but of course it was still cool to get them in this set. The build ofthis set is the hogort prison tower, which of course, has a cell for seriousblack on the top and there's a balcony where Harry can come and rescue seriouswith buckbeak. Now I do think it's kind of weird Hermini is not included withthis set because she is in this scene in the movie and pretty much the onlymissing character here and this whole tower can open up kind of a randomfeature, because we never really see what's inside the tower and the movie,but you can swivel it open to reveal some small details on the inside. Thereis a table and there's a rat, definitely not needed details, but Ialso like it when Lego doesn't completely waste a bunch of open space.So I'm not really going to complain about that here, and this is yetanother pretty accurate, build. I really like this and actually recentlypurchased this set from a buddy of my own anstegram at childish, LandinoChronicles. Please got ick out his account. He post some really qualitystuff actually purchased. This set off him andt a really great set, and I lovethe original molds for Buck beginas. The dementorjust had the inicat colorsare still pretty good. Looking Manu figures and the next set from this lineis a thirty dollar set with two hundred and forty three pieces, and that is thenight bus already mentioned. How I absolutely adore the nightbus scene inthe movie. They do such a good job with that scene. It is seriously so great.The figures included here are Harry Potter, of course, Ind some streetclothing you get serious black, but as a Doge, not as actually a human seriesByk, just a simple old style, lik o dog piece and you get Stan- Shun Pike, theguy on the night bus who takes tickets and whatnot. Unfortunately, you do notget the driver of the netbuz himself, Mr Arnie Prang, but you will hear hisname later on in today's episode. The build of this set is the first everappearance, O the nightbus and Lego form, and at this point in time, purplepieces were very hard to come by and this had a lot of them because,obviously the night bus iconically is purple and I think it was a great partpack and for the most part I think this was a very good build. Obviously, it'sa three story: Bus. It was fairly thin and it looked a little bit blocky, butfor the time it looked very good and had a printed windshield with theshrunken head on it. I don't love the fact that the SRUNKEN head is printedin this set and they make up for that mistake in later versions of thisvehicle. But of course, it's cool to get an illusion of him anyways, becauseI love that character and the movie yeah theycul the way. Only it's goingto be AU, bumppener ide, I mean I freakang love the shrunken head. Thenext set from this line, which is also thirty oars, is a new version ofHaggard's hut for the tongue with three...

...hundred and two pieces. The figuresincluded here are Hackard and Hermioni, yet again, no Harry what is happeningin this way. There's so many sets that don't include Harry potters, so bizarreto me and Harry Potter, yet again is in this scene in the movie. Just seems soaware that Lego omitted him from so many individual sets. Now, as for thebuild of this set shocker, it's haggards hut and it's a very nicelyrevant version of Hacard's hut from the two thousand and one version. If yourememberd that one from the episode of Brikology, when I talked about it, it'sa very odd build. I had these weird roof pieces that were like made ofvinyl and they would all fold in together kind of like pizza. They goterded that, thank God I don't think it ever. We looked all that good and it'sactually brick built the roof here, and I think that was a very good decisionand of course you can open up the build in the middle to reveal an interior,and it was very spacious on the inside has all the typical details you expectfrom Haggard's Hut. It's a fun set! Nothing really to write home abouthacgards hut sets are fairly predictable and they made a lot of themin a very similar style, but it was still a cool set to get the next hetfrom this line is a very unique set to this wave and to this Wav only, andthat is the fifty dolar set of the shrieking shack, which had four hundredand forty four pieces, a great peace count. The figures included here, thankGod, Harry Potter. You also got serious black and the dog version of himincluded, which is not Tosey, get an exclusive character in the first everappearance of Peter Pedigru in Lego form, and you got professor loopan witha wolf head and I'll talk more about the wolf version of him a little bitlater on when talking about this set ond. The build of this set is the onlyever apparance of the shriking sheck in Lego form, Lego, you're, making tons ofHarry Potter sets right now. Please remake this. It's an iconic buildingfrom this film. It makes for a fun Lego, Sait, I'm sure do a very Simmar, likeyou did. The burgough set from last year, come on Lego, make a freakingsheereaking shack set again. I would love to see that is a multiple leveland the levels are kind of rotated floors. I put them on some swivelingpieces to simulate the WEIRD SHAPE: it's not quite accurate to the movie,but for the time I think it was pretty well done. Unfortunately, the Interioris Super Mediocre. It's he doll, house style and from the back you just havesome tables, so didn't really add much besides a fireplace an. I think theyreally should have made that big bed that you see in the movie that snape iskind of pushback into also snape, as not included in the set, which is aglaring omission of figure. Here I would have been nice to have maybe alittle bit more going on on the inside of this building, but you also got anadditional building with this set a side build of honey, dows candy shopfrom Hogsmead and to this point this is actually the only version of Hoggis,mea we've ever gotten in Lego Forma. They are going to remake it this summer,with the twentyt anniversary set of time super excited for, but at thistime it was exclusive to this set and a very nice inclusion here and actually,despite being really small, it was a very solid looking build, but there'sone more piece of this set that I have yet to touch on, and that is what I'mgoing to call the transformation bucks. This is one of the weirdest things I'veever seen in a lego set ever not even joking. This is so strange. It's a veryunlego like peace. If you ask me it's literally like a box, it's one bigpiece, and it has some studs ono to kind of make it the illusion that it'sLego and it looks kind of like a like af, like bround piece on the outside,but I don't even know how to explain this. It's so bizarre, if you want tolearn more definious lookup perview for this, but basically it had a switch oryou could put one version of professor loopon on the inside pushed on theswitch it would spin around, and it would turn him into the wearewolfversion. Professor Loupan and they reused a wearewolf piece that was fromthe Lego. Studio sets and didn't really...

...look accurate at all to the movie o. Weshould definitely get a new version of where will flup and they need to make amore acurate version of that figure. What a weird thing I love! The idea of,transforming him Yit can build a transformation feature just out ofnormal lego bricks. Instead, they made this super elaborate mob that felt veryout of place and on Lego, like it's really weird, but I've also been socurious to actually get this set just to have that piece, because I neveractually seen the peace in real life. What a bizarre bizarre thing incluedwith this set, but this set was footed on by my fans on Instagram as the bestLeko Harry Potter and the prisoner of Aska band set. I don't own the setpersonally, so it's hard for Yo to make a comment on that. It does look verycool. I did think it has some issues and I really want them to remake thisbuilding in particular, so you can get a better feel for a more modern versionin a modern take on this particular structure and Likeo form. I think thatwould be really fantastic to see. Now the biggest set from this wave is theninety dolar nine hundred and forty four piece set just known as HugwartsCastle. This is the first new hoggarts castle set. We got from Lego inaddition to the first one that came out in two thousand and one- and this is areally good say that came with a lot of figures. You get Harry Potter, Ron,Weesley, her Minin granger drakcom Mouthfoy, Professor Albus duble door,hed, a brand new and first evher aparents up professor Tholami, who is avery important character in the film and Two dementors are included withthis set as well as for the built of thes set, you get a clock tower now.The clock tower is a part of hoggorts. That's really only seen in this movieand like briefly in the gobblet of fire. They actually remade the clock tower intwo thousand and nineteen for Lego, Harry Potter. That one was actuallybased on the GOBLETA fire, but it's very prevalent in this film inparticular. Now lego did a really good job. They have a very nice printedclockpiece and there was a cool geared mechanism on the inside to make theclock. You know, quote unquote function which was nice to see. Now the clocktower on the inside the interior, again just kind of lack some detail: There'ssome spider webs on the bottom floor, there's a nice big door at the frontand there's some stairs that lead to the second floor. I, like the inclusionof stairs here, but the rooms are super underwhelming. They just don't look allthat great there's a small alry at the top, some potions and some books andcandles that's about it, really not much else to talk about on the insideyear. They definitely just kind of drop the ball with the interior of this set.Now there is another tower included here. What the kind of modular aspectof hogwarts- and this one is the griffindor common room wing. It looksreally good from the outside. It's very skinny and the inside again has somepretty underwoming details. You could kind of fold it open a bit to reveal acouple of beds in the groifind door common room, but for the most part notmuch going on there and then the bottom floor has a table and a quill wow.That's just so boring Lego. You have made better interiors to hoggort setsbefore this set. I just feel like this. That kind of drop the baln- I don't saythis wave in general- has really great looking sets as display pieces, but alot of these sets really lacked any good interior detail, one more thingis.You also got a small exterior gate for this set that could kind of be positionin front of it. Nothing crazy there, but always nice to get so, like I said,looks great from the outside definitely looks a lot better aesthetically fromthe outside than the other hogwart sets, but compared to those sets, theinterior was super lack, lustere, Awso included. With this way we got a newversion of the hogwarts express. This set was forty bucks with three hundredand eighty nine pieces and included the figures of Harry Potter Ron Weesley,Professor Lupan, and a demand Tor should have included her mini as well,but whatever we also get the build, of...

...course, of the set, which includes avery small version of the Howart train station seriously. It's tiny andhonestly feels completely useless and unneeded an this set, and then, ofcourse, you get a remake of the two thousand. An one version of the HOGgarth express traing itself looks pretty much the same. Nothing crazy towrite home about here. Well, we should wright. homeabout is the neck set fromThi Line, which is another version of the HOG gards express released aroundthe same time. This version is lown as the motorized hogwarts express, and itwas one hundred and twenty dollars was seven hundred and eight pieces. Thefigures are the exact same as the last set. The build is a very similarlooking train, I'm pretty sure a lot of it is almost the exact scene, but itdoes include an additional train car before one reason that will talk abouthere in just a second. You also get the train station here and it's ten timesbigger and better than the last one. It's a multistory building and adulthouse style again kind of underwhelming interior, but it looks great from theoutside, which is so funny to me that this set is the monorise version, butyou also just get a weway better version of the hoggarts train stationthat was nice to see, and obviously the main draw of this set is from the nameof the set. It is a motorized version of the HOG Garch Express, so this setalso included a full set of Lekeo train tracks and a functioning lego trainmotor, which are always super fun to see, and I'm kind of surprised theyhaven't done this again with like kind of like a UCS style set, making a bighogwartz express whath they motor on the inside. It seems like they shouldget on that and make this sort of thing again. It's a very, very cool set andobviously train cens, er very expensive. I hardly ever buy train sets, but theyhave very fun play features an really like this set in total, and that is itfor all the twothousand and four likeo Harry Potter and the prisoner of ASCAband sense. A lot of sets a very good wave, definitely a flawed way, butoverall, a good looking wave and we actually had to wait an entire sevenyears for our next Lego, Harry Potter and prisoner basket been set to bereleased and that set is the thirty dollar two hundred and eighty one pieceset. That is the first remake of the night bus now brickset actually saidthis set had two hundred and fifty seven pieces, and when I read that allriting my notes, I was like that's not right. That seems so wrong to me that Ilooked it up and actually had two hundred eighty one pieces and I felt sogood to actually outsparted brick set on my lego knowledge. Now. The figuresincluded with this say here, of course, Harry Potter, Stam Shunpick in hisfirst ever remak ing the first ever appearance of taking the way, onlyprank, a great Wen. You figure include with the set and then, of course thebuild of this set is the night bus again it definitely looks a lot betterthan the version of from two thousand and four its sleeker has more detail.The Trunk En head is now a printed cylinder piece which looked a littlebit wonky, but was nice to have in the set and the inside had some cool play,features were the beds and the Chandoleer were like kind of looselyattached, so they slit around when you move the night bus on the floor very,very cool overall, a really good remake of this set, and this hat means a lotto me because I remember getting thes set at the Lego store. The same day, Igot my braces removed utor like five years. It's like my reward for havingbraces for all this time, was actually getting to get this set. That was SuperSuper Fun and that's it for prisoner basket band sets from that weirdrebouted wave of Harry Potter, andtodosand, Ten Thousand and eleven.We had to wait again another seven years before we got another new HarryPotter and the prisoner basket band sets and there's been a number of newsets from this film and they have some weird inconsistencies. So let's talkabout that right now, the first one here is the hog guards express from twothousand and eighteen, which was an...

...eitdollar set with eight hundred andone pieces. So a fantastic pricure pace right there, just right on the money.The figures include. The Seid here are Harry Potter, Ron, Wheesley andscabbards s at so included for wrong, which makes sense Hor this movie andyou get her mindy. Now all these figures have short legs which Lego hasnow established that prisoner basket. Ban figures have those midlegs thatwere actually introduced with the Harry Potter, Clictoll minifigure series, Lekthem look more like teenagers, so they now all have midlegs. But these figuresall had short legs very strange and bizarre inconsistency with the rest ofleco Harry Potter sets also here something that's really odd. Is Harry.Potterndron Weesley have the same outfits that they're wearing in a setthat from this wave that came with Aragog and the forbidden forest, whichthose outfits are not the same because they're from different movies, sothey're not wearing accurate outfits here. So the figures incouded with thisset are honestly all over the place and not really sure what happened there now.The other three figures are definitely a little bit more accurate. You get abrand new version of Professor Lupan, who I always love to see. You get theanything from the TROULLEY DEA, which, which is a great inclusion with a Higguard to express set, and you get, of course, an iconic dementor who usessome great pieces here. Some like the Weird Ghos spectr piece from that CMFseries, and he has more accurate, colors great to get a dementor here now.The build of this set includes Kings Cross station, which of course, is inLondon and the hidden platform. Nine three quarters: This is a great side,build one of the better sidebuilds they've ever made for a hogwartsexpress set, and it has a really cool play feature where you can push yourcart through the hidden door and end up on platform ninend, three quarters.That is a great play feature, and there is a nice train station style bridgethat goes over and you can fit the entire train underneath it. I love thatas well like, I did a great job with that detail. As for the HOG gardsexpress itself, this is a very, very good version of this train. It hasgreat details: Great Billing Techniques, N as a very sleek, nice and modern,looking design, the cold car is fairly underwhelming. But besides thateverything looks great. However, the passenger car looks great from theoutside. The inside is fairly thin and the booths don't look anything likethey do in the movie and the movie they're completely inclosed and havesludding doors. These ones are very open air and don't look accurate at all,so I wish they made the booves a little bit more accurate to the film. Besidesthat, a very, very good version of the hogwarts express and actually mypersonal first evert version of the hock of de spress atter seventeen yearsof being a like a Harry Potter, Fan. I've finally had one in my collectionthat was the only official prisoner of askaband set from two thousand andeighteen Antil, O nineteen. They made a little small mini wave of prisonerbasket band set starting off with these set known as Expecto Petrono. This is atwenty dolar set with one hundred and twenty one pieces bed price to partratio, but the set has some really dope mini figures. Of course you get HarryPotter, who now has the accurate size midlegs and the accurate street clotheswhich was nice to see you get serious black, his first ever appearence sincehis apparente in two thousand and four, which is a great figure to get here.You get two dementors in this set, so it's nice to get them in a cheap andsmall set, and you get Harry potters, patronos Ta Charm, which of course is astag which have gone under use as a rangeer mold in the Elf House set- andthis is a great great piece it looks really interesting to because forpatrunuses they starten molding these pieces in transparent, blue withglitter effects. Now, personally, I don't think the paturnities should beblue and the movies they always looked very kind of milky white to me. However,I get it because blue definitely pops a...

...little bit more and even like funk, otPOPs hats made their POPs up. ATURN says the same color, so I kind of getwhere they're coming from, but they look really great. As for the build ofthis set, you get some trees. Yes, some trees, some Fasad like trees that areskinny and look kind of whack from the back seriously they're so thin. Theycan remind me like trees from a stage play like you, see them from the front,and you look at the backiters cut off and don't have any edded detail reallyweird, really weird Bild choice. O There are two different trees. One treeis by itself with nothing else, besides a flick missile with a blue disk, andyou can fire that flick missile, and I'm assuming this is supposed tosimulate when Harry is kind of launching his Patronos charm, so not ofhalf bad little play featured there. The other tree has a small little shorebuild with some rocks and foliage as well, and, of course, you can putserious black on there. This set is not a great build. It literally is just twotrees and it's very small, but you get great Mani figures and that praternitspiece is amazing to get in this set and easily worth like half the price ofthis set by itself. So that is a great inclusion with this set. The next sethere is the next remake, of course, of the night. Bus In this set is fortybucks with four hundred and three pieces, and can we talk about thenightbus and its inflation over the years? The original nightbus was thirtydollars, the next seven years passed and we got a night bus, four thirtyfive dollars, then eight years pass and the next night bus we got was fortybucks that has to be the most natural inflation of any LECO setever, becausewe get things like exwings going from thirty dollars to ninety dollars, butthe nightpless just had a very steady in increase in price and in peace countand they're all pretty good values. This one, especially, I had to give myhats off to Lego for not making the nightbus sets super over price. Now.This nightbus include the figures of a course Harry Potter in his accuratesize and street clotes at Agin, Stan Shunpike and Earnie prayng. Soobviously the ICONIF caracters are come in the sat here and they have updatedversions of the build. Is the night bus? It's definitely the best version theymade. Yet some great new pieces are used and there's definitely some collplay features even more od. It detail. The trunk anahead is now and normalmanifigure sized head, though, which seems kind of weird to me because it'sa shrunken head, but it's the same size as a normal minifik head. So itshouldn't be the normal size because it's shrunken in the movies, so thatdoesn't really make any sense if you kind of catch my drit, but whateverthat is a small knitpick with this set. The set in particular has the mostaccurate details for any nightbus set. It has awesome details throughoutincluding some really cool stickers that add just kind of do the astheticand the look and the accuracy of this vehicle. I loved this Sei of thisvehicle in the movie and Lego has made. I think, some very natural, progressingand good versions of this vehicle and Lego form on the final set for today ishaggared's hut, another remake of Hagrard's hut. This is a sixty dollarset, so not a very natural increase from the threy dollar set fromtwothousand and four an then two thozand and ten and got a forty dollarversion. So sixty was a pretty big jump. None. This version of Haggard Sut hasfour hundred and ninety six pieces and include the figures of Harry Potter Ron,Wazy, Herminig granger nice to see her mindi in this set with her pink jacketand the movie. She looks great here and, of course, you get Haggard CorneliusFudge, who's exclusive to this set and the executioner a very violent name,Bra lego figure. This guy literally wears a black hood and has a big ax todecapitate buckbeak, a very violent thing in the movie vor a pg movie and aviolent figure for Lego to make. But I welcome getting all the Harry POTTRCcharacters we possibly can and, of course we also get buckbeak. Who is anew mold? The first update since two...

...thousand and four it looks much betterthan the original one has more accurate details printed eyes. The wings lookbetter overall, a very, very good update on the buck. Beak character now,as for the builds of this set, you get a pumpkin patch, so kind of similar tothat draco mouthfoy set from two thosand and four, but more accurately,located and a more accurate scene representation from the film, and italso has a chain to lock up buckbeak. So the executioner can chop his headoff now. Luckily, the buckbig figure you actually can't remove its head. Sothat's good! You can't really simulate that happening here and, of course, youdon't really actually see that in the movie they just cut away from it, butyou also get haggard's hut, and this is the first time I think, like a reallymajorly change, the way they did Hacgard Hut, all the previous versionsof his hut were made in a styl where it kind of folded open. This one has madethe style of very normal legostructures, where it's a dull house style andcompletely open from the back, and it actually feagures the two individualsections of Haggard's hut to the first time, Lego actually made an accurateshape for Haggard's hut and the interior has a fireplace that has alight brick, which is I activated by one of the panels. They use to buildthe roof of the build which wis a very, very cool play feature, and the insidehas lots of details and accessories and honestly, is probably the best versionof the hut they've made to date, and I would love to see them honestly tacklethis build with a ucs tyl, because I think they could make a really reallycool build. I think this one obviously does look really cool and probably isthe best version theyv made this sed today, and this one actually came insecond place for voting on the best prisoner basket band site. It's a funlittle runner, UF, detailed there very good set, but also pretty over price atsixty bucks, even though it does come with buck beak. And you know whatthat's all that is all of the Lego, Harry Potter and prisoner askenbandsets to date, of course, Lat's repetition here lots of remakes of thesame set, but it's a very good collection of sets, and I love thisfilm. I love a lot of the stuff we've gotten from this film. But what do youthink? Please?
