LEGO Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

After a huge push in the first few waves of LEGO Harry Potter, the 4th installment in the series saw a huge step back with a limited run of sets back in 2005 and remakes from 2019. How is the quality of the Goblet of Fire sets from LEGO? Stream the latest episode of Brickology to find out!

This is thefourth Harry Potter episode, which means we're half way done with HarryPotter after today, and obviously news is the fourth Harry Potter movie, whichis the Goblet of fire. I'm very excited to talk about this.

If you want more of my beautiful voice, but that's all it isfor shameless bloods. Let's now transition and talk about Lego, HarryPotter and the Goblet of fun, if you're a long time listener of the show, youknow the drill, I give a little bit of back story to whatever we are talkingabout before I move on to the products that like have made themselves. Ifyou're a first time listener, I would suggest, go listening to my other Lego,Harry Potter episodes. You get a lot more information of the history of Lego,Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Lego, all...

...those brands together, they'll give somuch due to context to the rest of this episode, because I don't want to wasteyour time and reiterate stuff. I've already said in the past, but here is areally really brief. Some nation, if you are first in listeners, to give youjust a hint of context, but definitely go cream, those episodes as well. Letgo really pumped a lot into their first few years for Harry Potter, which makessense the movies were a humongous deal in the early two sand and there wastons of merchandising, including big ways of Lego sets and to even kind ofadd to that. Each of the first three waves of Harry Potter set to the firstthree movies, the philosopher, Lash sorcerer, stone the chamber secrets andthe prisoner of Askabad, which are the episodes I've already done on brickology. All of those got at least ten sets, if not up to fifteen sets andtheir initial ways and following ways. So there are really big push for HarryPotter, which makes what I'm about to say very shocking goblet of firee,which came out just one year after the prisoner of Askee only got four sets.We went from ten sets for the prisoner of Askabad if you include the polly bagfor the miniature night bus ten sets double digit sets to less than five. Weonly got four sets now. This can be attributed to a couple of things.There's no real confirmed reason. Why there's just kind of my theories andsome of the People's theories that I have looked up online essentially legawas in the midst of their dark age. I've mentioned this a number of timeson brick, Ology Lego, the late s early to mid two and was not doing too hot.It was definitely a low point for the company and their sales weren't greatand apparently the sales were pretty low for the sets based off the prisonerof as Caban and the reason. I've heard the reason that why those sales weren'tgood for a prisoner of Askia is because Lego made set two thousand and one andtwo thousand and two for Harry Potter and then in two thousand and three.There was no new Harry Potter movie, because no new movie came out, meaningthere were no new sets for Harry plotter that year they not continue thetheme into two thousand and three, so they had a pretty long break betweenHarry Potter movies, meaning there was a long break between leg, merchandise,based offset movies, and then they kind of you know come up. The big way wereprisoner, asking band sets in the summer of two thousand and four thecoin side with that movie, but some of the audience that kind of lost interestin Lego and legos marketing for it at the time was extremely poor. I'vementioned this before in the prisoner bask comment, episode and an episode ofStar Wars for some reason in, like two thousand and four thousand and threeLego decide to make all of their boxes. Look the exact same. They all had thisreally generic kind of blue border and then had like one logo to differentiateit from all the other lego products, but all the boxes look. The same didnot look Harry Potter, specific at all, which I definitely think probably hurtsome sales, because people really didn't know exactly what was going onand they were not good. Looking on shelves so, like I said, none of thisis really confirmed which it's a theory of mine, but that is may be the reasonwhy prisoner of Askatin sets might have sold poorly and then lego looked at thesales for prisoner basket band sets and was like well shoot. We were going todo. Let's only do a small way for goblet of fire and it gets even worsefrom there stay tuned for the next Terry Potter Episode About Order ToPhoenix, and then the half blood prance is going to completely collapse fromthere and Harry potters Lego. History gets very muddled from that point,which is very very strange. So those are some weird details about kind ofwhy there are only a few sets in the initial waves based off goblet of fire.Now, thankfully, let go actually fixed an issue they had like I mentioned withthose prisoner of Askia set, and that is giving this set a movie specific boxart, which was very cool. Now there were no small sets from this line.Every set was of some substantive value, the smallest one was twenty oars andthe biggest one was fifty, so a bunch of medium size sets, and obviouslythese sets were kind of rare. They...

...didn't make a big push for them andthere weren't too many of them meeting. They are super expensive, nowcompletely shut up in value. It's hard to find these sets new, sealed the minifigures, the creatures all the exclusive mobled and that fun stuffit's really hard to find. So these sets are very, very valuable and Ipersonally don't own any of them. I really wish I did. I wasn't super intoLego Harry Potter at this specific point in time, so I did not get any ofthese sets, and I regret that tremendously and one more weird noteabout this way was: there are no hogward sets. Not a single section ofthe HOG. Warts Castle came out with this way, which I believe makes it theonly wave of Lego Harry Potter ever to do that. I might have to fact checkmyself, but I believe that's correct. There's never been another wave ofHarry plotter that did not have hog warts in some shape or form, which isvery bizarre, so those are kind of the specific details in the history of letgo Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire. Let's now jump in and talk about thatfirst Capon, a fire away in two thousand and five. Our First Goblin offire set here, is the rescue from the merpeople. This was the smallest set ofthe bunch and actually to this day, is still the smallest goblet of fire setin terms of peace count, and it is the rescue from the Merpeople was twenty lwith a hundred and seventy five pieces. The figures included here now with alot of these old gobleted. These figures are completely exclusive to allthese sets because they have very specific variants of popular and newHarry Potter, characters and some creatures alike, making the value go upyet again, so the first figure in this set here is Harry Potter. Obviously,Harry Potter comes in almost every lego Harry Potter set, but this is the Gillyweed version of Harry Potter after in the movie, unlike the book in the book,I believe Dobby Gives Harry the Gilly Wee, but in the film nevil gives HarryGilly weed which, when he eats it, it basically gives him gills and flipperslike he is a fish man. It's kind of a weird scene, the movie, but I think itworks out pretty well and Lego, recreated that here, with this HarryPotter figure, he has the Gills printed on his face, which is a completelyexclusive Harry Potter, face print. Additionally, he does have flippersthat were molded in orange. They really should have been a skin tone. It looksa little bit off to me. Another thing that looks off is his legs. His legswere basically the Lego waste piece in black and then kind of plane, flesh,colored legs with no additional printing making. It look like he's kindof just wearing a speed O, which is not really what he wears in the movie. Ithink they could have done something different with the legs here. It looksa little bit awkward in my opinion, I'm assuming now like, I probably do in allof the legs to make them look a little bit better, but back in the day, itlooked very, very strange one more detail about this Harry Potter figureand the other hairy figures from this first line of God, latoile set as heuses the same hair piece Lego introduced with for Harry Potter backin the day and like I love that hairpiece, it worked pretty well forthe first few ways of Harry Potter sets, but in this movie Harry's got long hair.He legitimately has hair like down to his shoulders, and this is not a longhair piece. It looks very inaccurate to me, so that is definitely a missedopportunity on legos part. Now the other figures included with this set.We get Ron Weasley and her mine granger, who are in some relatively plainhogart's robes. However, both of them have a sleeping faces because in thefilm, if you remember, they basically take somebody who matters to one of thechampions. So, for example, they take Harry's best friend, run and put him atthe bottom of the lake, and you think about it is a pretty messed up thing todo to a person, and then they take her minded granger, who is Victor Crumbs,most valuable person, because he has a big crutch on her and put her at thebottom of the lake. So it's cool to get variants of those characters here thatis really nice and speaking of Victor Crumb, you get him in this set with anawesome, headpiece and, of course, is his shark head piece, because the wayhe breathes under water is by shape...

...shifting the top half of his face intoa shark, not really sure how that works, but it looked pretty cool in the movie,especially led the Seine, when he shapes sus back until human. It's ahilarious, looking see yer minds me those like ANA mork books back in theday and it's a very cool figure that comes an exclusive shark head mold.Only in this set that's molded in kind of a sandy blue color and has somegreat molo details, a really cool figure and one more figure included.What they said here, of course, is a mere person, a really creepy figureusing the old mormal tail piece that is in dark, green, her skin is gray andher hair is kind of dark red, very creepy figure, and I really hope, Legokind of remakes this it at some point to get a more uptears ion of some ofthese characters, and five figures for a twenty dollar set is an absolutelyfantastic value. However, about half the characters from this scene arestill missing. We don't have our other two champions in Flor de la cour and soher digere, and we don't have the people they're trying to rescue as well.So it's very confusing. I've definitely think that kind of mess this up alittle bit in terms of accuracy, but this is a small set. So I get why therearen't as many figures as there are in the actual scene. As for the builds ofthis say it small renditions of the underwater platforms from the moviedivided into three different, distinct sections. The first one is a smallSTARBOA that leads up to a platform with a crab piece that can fold it toreveal a hidden knife and there's also a trap door piece without the door.That's raised up with an octopus on it. Now these creatures don't really makesense. These are like deep sea creatures, or this is in a lake. So I'mnot really sure why exactly they have these creatures here, but I guess itkind of helps to set the underwater scene in some ways. The Second Sectionis very small, and it has some rocks with a sea weed peace and has a littlecave with a red scort pet on the inside I'm guessing this Red Scorpion issupposed to be a lobster and honestly, it works out pretty well because thosecreatures in real life look fairly similar and there is a technic rod onthe back of this cad that you can push and it will launch the lobstersScorpion piece out there, which is a fun, albeit very simple, playabilityfeature, and the third section is kind of the main section here where you canput Ron and her mind is stand as the champions to rescue them and there's afeature that kind of lodges them out like it happens in the movie. It'sdefinitely a little bit finicky, but I like the effort here and there are somevery cool, dark, green and dark blue colors being used, and I think it kindof captures that underwater aesthetic pretty well additionally, there's one afinal build for this said that it is a small side build of a rowboat that isand add almost nothing to the remainder of this sad. Definitely, a wasted sidebuilt in my opinion, but overall, a decent set that I just wish were alittle bit bigger and honestly lego remake this. Please, we all want aremake of this set. Make it way bigger had maybe the above sea platformsincluded include like ten figures. It could be an awesome like eighty to onehundred dollar set. I think this that should be a bigger set, and I reallyhope Leo remake it at some point here in the near future. The next up here isthe thirty dollar five hundred and forty eight piece set. Yes, that isactually the price or a piece of the said. The price piece here is of thecharts good, and this is the grave yard duel. After the third maze challengewas in the film now, the figures included to hear Harry Potter in hisFinal Challenge: outfit, which is a Tarsian that is split in the middlebetween bread and black, a very good looking hairy figure again with aninaccurate hair piece. You also get the first ever appearance of Voldemar inLego form. Besides the tar middle figure and the back of Lupin's head,but like the main version of Valdemar here is included and it's a very coollooking figure. He has a glow in the dark head similar to the snake figures,and it still doesn't really make sense why there should be a glow in the darkhead here. But you know what I'll kind of let it slide, because barmark deadhad a very like creepy white skin, the movies. So I think the golden the darkactually works out a little bit better...

...for this character and he has a clothCape piece. You also get Lucia's mouth foy kind of in this set technicallylegatos reverses figure as a quote: UNQUOTE: Death Eater, but it does havethe Lucius Motoi head piece. I'm just going to go ahead and assume this isactually supposed to be moufy himself and finally, you get a Peter pedegreefigure, which is the first ever appearance of this character in Legoform and a couple of skeletons are included as well to help kind us setthe scene for this graveyard duel interesting, like does not include seadegree in this set. Obviously he infamously dies in this scene, whichwould be a pretty morbid figure to include with the set, but it's also anotable exclusion in the figure line up for accuracy sake now. As for thebuilds of this set, there are a lot of built in this set. Most of them aretombstones which make sense, because this is a grave yard. The main one, ofcourse, is for Tom Riddle, which has a creepy winged skeleton at the back andfeatures a play body feature for Volem to rise out of the ground, which ispretty fun. There's three additional tombstones included as well. One ispretty decent in size and features a playability function where a skeletoncan pop up out of it. The other two are kind of small, and they have thesehinges that can fold back to reveal a lego skeleton on a sticker underneathit, which I found to be a very interesting planted, function andlittle at a detail that Lego through, and there there's also a gate includedwith this set, which helps set the scene and the front doors can open andit does have some hinges of its own, so it kind of wraps her round kind ofsetting this scene a game. This thing a little bit more shape, which I do enjoyadditional get a mausoleum, and this salic makes sense for a graveyard, notmuch detail here. E Some clips on the wall has some tools and a trash kin.The trash can kind of throws me off. It feels very out of place with this set,but I don't mind the design for this Moslem at all. It looks pretty good inthe background. You also get a wagon in this set which feels kind of right intome, but of course it has for wheels and it can roll around. And finally, youget a creepy looking tree with no leaves, and it features some black owlssome bats and a spider on just kind of adding to the Halloween as aesthetic ofthis set over all this is a great display scene and has great pulvillifunctions, really good mini figures, included and so much stuff is in thisset. The fact that the set was only thirty a back in the day for the Mountof pieces included. Here is ridiculous to me and clearly, this sent had aneffect on you as well, because this was voted. The Best Lego, Harry Potter andthe Goblet of fire set and honestly looking at a lot of these sets here,it's really hard for me to disagree with that, because it said, is prettymuch great in every single individual category, especially for its time. Thisis a fantastic set, the next set, which is also thirty oars with two hundredand sixty five pieces. So almost three hundred of less parts for the sameprize compared to the last thing we just talked about is Harry and theHungarian or entail this. It includes Harry Potter in a special row for thischallenge. You also get a new version of dumble door and you get our firstever appearance of Mad. I moody in Lego Form Very Cool. Many figures includedhere and obviously the main kind of figure here is a big FIG creaturedesign for the Hungarian Horn tail itself. This is a special mode. It hasa nice shaping for the head with a great print for his eye, and I'm reallyGod like a use print for this character, because before most of the Harry Pottercreatures had kind of molded designs, it was not to see a printed one here.It features big dragon wings, often seen in castle set and there's nomoving besides the wings and the jaw, but it looks very accurate and has anice shape over all, especially for a two thousand andfive model. As for thebuild of this set, you get the stadium,...

...which is made mostly from big ugly rockpieces, a a BURP as they're known in the Liga community. There is a catapultthat can launch Harry on his broom, which is a pretty average play. Buddyfeatured is also a small platform with the Golden Egg, which is a pretty coolpiece included here and then, of course, you get. These stands with seats forDumbledore, and my Di Moody and the entire thing can be knocked over justlike it happens in the movie, which is a pretty fun playability function, andthe built this set was accurate enough. I mean it kind of resembles a thingfrom the movie which ultimately is just a stadium with a lot of rocks in it,but it doesn't make for a super attractive, looking build so clearly,the highlight of this set is the Dragon, if it weren't for the Dragon. That setwould be pretty ugly, but the dragon definitely helps and makes this set allaround. The final set from two thousand and five for Migo Harry Potter and theGoblet of fire is the Dermstein ship. This is the biggest set of the bunch.It is fifty o five hundred and fifty pieces and includes two many figures.It comes with R Crumb, not the shark cord, just the normal merchant ofVictor Crumb, and we also get eager Carcara. The only ever appearance ofthat character and Lego form- and that is all she wrote for the figures inthis set. It's a rare hurry potter said, do not include Harry Potter, whichhonestly it is accurate. Harry should not be on this ship, so it makes sensenot to include him here, but it's still kind of weird, it's kind of strange tome. We only get two figures in this set that definitely sands a little bitlacking for a fifty dollar set. As for the build of this set, you get the shipand it's a very large ship, according to Breke about twenty three inches tall,which is really big for a set of this price. It has all the essentials. Youwould expect from a ship of this sort, yeah but whole and deck made up or veryspecialized pieces. The deck has a play, click any good ship of this sort. Itlooks very nice when the outside there are some really good colors being usedhere, including a combination of black gray, Tan light, blue and dark red,really fun and unique colors game that I quite like a lot and, like I saidit's a very tall build. It has really big masks that were quite huge and kindof bent over like they are in the film. The back section has some nights bridgeareas as well and a few different levels. You can actually lift the toplevel off and it kind of swings open to reveal a nice interior, some shows andtables and storage and there's some more hidden store underneath that aswell over all a great set. It looks really good for the time and I reallyhope kind of, like the other set of this line with the Mer people. I wantLego to remake this at some point in time and speaking of remakes are nextin a set and creline a couple of remakes of these sets and then someother scenes from goblet to fire, but it took fourteen years for us to getany more stuff from this movie, a very large gap in between set based off thisfilm. But let's transition talk about the more modern Lego, hared potter andthe Goblet of fire sets. One weird fact is all this says from the Goblet, afire at least either in two thousand and five or two thousand, and nineteenno other year has any goblet of fire specific sets. Just from that film.Technically, the two thousand and twenty, like of Harry Potter, Avencalendar, is based off the Yule Ball, but it also has some references tothings that aren't Youl ball specific. So we're not going to include that onthis list, just gobletful things here today and the first one is the thirtydollar two hundred and sixty five piece set of the Hungarian Horn tail trywizard challenge and at that price and peace count sounds similar. Is Theixact same prize and the exact same peace count as the set from twothousand and five? That is absolutely insane to me. I can't think of any to,like I said, based off the exact same...

...scene. For that to happen. That's aridiculous coincidence. In my opinion, I cannot believe that's how it ended upnow. The figures included here were actually different, and this is aslightly different rendition of this scene. The figures here you get HarryPotter in his challenge, outfit and finally, he has an accurate length ofhair. He has a long hair piece in this set which is great to see, and he hasmid legs which are introduced for the rebooted in two thousand and eighteen,it's basically in between short legs and long legs kind of like teenagersized legs, which is very cool. You also get sea degree in this set, whohas huffle pup style, Quidi, robes, really nice to get him here. You alsoget Vor crumb in this set os a great torso print and a hair piece that makesno sense to me and a face. That's reused from other lego themes that doesnot resemble the actor at all in the movie. Victor Cron has like facial,hair and, basically a buzz cute. He has very noticeable hair and a leg offigure and no facial, hair and eyebrows that don't match his hair color. It's aterrible face. Print Lega really dropped the ball on not giving us a newface print for Victor Crom here. Additionally, you also get floorDelacour our first ever appearance of this character and Lego form and shelooks pretty solid and has a tar so with a great print here that lookspretty cool. She does reuse some faces and hair pieces, but I think it worksout pretty well for this character. Now the build of this set, you get a smallside, tint build which is accurate in shape to the movie, but not in scale.It's very, very down size. It does open up to reveal a bed and a small tablewith some cuts and some stickers with logos on the wall, and that is itnothing to write home about here and it's all made in a really plain Tan.Color now the main build of this set is the dragon and it is a bill. This isnot a big big creature design. This is a brick built dragon. There is nostadium in this set really besides a very small piece of it with the GoldenEgg and they trained for the Dragon. I love the Golden Egg. Here, it's kind ofa metallic goal: Color Rases that piece from the angry bird sets. That is agreat inclusion, but no other semblance of the stadium is included here and thedragon has way more articulation than the version from two thousand and five.The use mixelogist EXO force joints by anic joints and all sorts of hand.Connection pieces to give this thing ample amount of movement, which isGreat. His jock can open up, there's so much posibility here, which isfantastic for playability sake. Now some of the joint pieces are kind ofgray and stand out to me. But besides that, it looks really good and Iespecially love kind of these spikes. They have for his details here and theyactually reused the exact same wing pieces from the two thousand and fiveoders an Sli different color, which works out well here as well, but thenthere's the the head, the head: Oh my gosh, they basically reuse a head piecefrom the fantastic beat set. The head piece of a ASI beast is supposed to befor these bird, like creatures, not a dragon, a bird and it's got a beak andlooks very birdie to me, and it does not look anything like a dragon and,despite legos graphic designers, working their but soft and giving us areally good print. That does resemble the Dragon. It's still at the rightshape. It looks way too small and isn't accurate at all. I think it looks awful.It's a humongous drop ball and I don't understand why, because they've, givenus so many new creature, molds for other Harry Potter set and for somereason, the Hungarian hartal one of the most iconic creatures from Harry Potter,doesn't get that Treadman at all. They should have given us a specialized headmold. It would have looked fantastic at me this, so it's so much better, but asit stands, we got an absolutely disgrace of a head for this dragon. Ihate that about this set and I really think, like I drop the ball here sooverall, I kind of hate this set it's...

...one of the worst Harry plotter setsLego has ever made. It has good many figures and it wasn't a bad value, butthe dragon was just the humankoind ent. I was waiting for renais track on formany years and Lego do not deliver with it here. That is definitely a bad egg.Among these LICO Harry Potter sets a much better set. Is a twenty dollar setcalled the rise of Voldemar with one hundred and eighty four pieces. This inincludes the Segur here of Harry Potter and his Final Challenge, outfit andweird than he were actually made a set of the final challenge. Just this scenein evection made a May set, which is kind of interesting. If you ask me, youalso get Voldemar in this set, who was no longer glow in the dark, but doeslook very cool and a baby version of him is included, which is a hilariousprinted piece. I love the inclusion of Baby Voldemar in this sent.Additionally, you also get Peter Petigru in this set. Who is a greatupdate of the character? They nailed the face print for him and you get adeath eater in this set. WHO has a great face print, and this is just kindof a Genera theater- is not supposed to be any specific character. So it'sbasically exact sang figures at the two thousand and five set, which I findpretty interesting as to the build of this set. You get a very large and nicerepresentation of Tom Riddles Tombstone here, which is an improvement on thetwo thousand and five version, and it does have a grim reaper, looking Carterthat can hold Harry and place just like in the movie, which is a nice plaaeyfunction and a good function for display as well. It's also kind of asmall terain style platform and has a feature for Valdemar to rise out of theground, and it does have the cauldron here, which is kind of the spell thatused to bring volumer back to life with the baby, altemire peace. You also geta bone, a hand which is Peter peggers hand and a red translucent. I piecewhich I'm assuming it's supposed to be a drop of blood like in the movie,which is pretty dark, like it. Does't normally include anything like bloodrelated in their sets of that's pretty dark for Lego, which I really do like.As for the side builds here, gets some small tombstones. One has the deathyhello symbol on it and there's also a brick built goblet of fire includedhere. That, I think, looks pretty good, but not super accurate and my opinion.So, overall, it's not as good as the original version, because it's notnearly as expensive before a twenty or set it has great clabby functions. Itlooks really good on display. This was a great twenty dollar set, but it kindof pales a comparison to the original version. Our next set here is actuallya brand new thing. Lego had never made in all their years, making Harry Potterset at this point in time, and that is the Bo Batan carriage arrival at HogGort. This was a fifty dollar set with four hundred and thirty pieces andinclude the figures here of Flor Delacour and her light blue suit, withthe hat that she wears in the film the kind of outfit that all thesecharacters are introduced to us with makes all the hog wart teenage boys funover a very good looking figure. You also get her little sister Gabriel, whohas a double sided face where she is sleeping, which is odd to me, because Imade a new face print for this character and she's sleeping because inthe movie she's, the Person Flora has to try to rescue from the Mer people.So basically that's kind of hinting at like a making a new Mer people set it'sbeen two years since this set was released and we still have no updateson a potential remake of the Mer people said. So it's TB. If we're ever goingto get that set, but they have the P face print here for this Gabrielcharacter, so kind of interesting, and hopefully that means at some point weactually get that set and Lego form also included. What this said here isour first ever appearance of Madam Maxse, the head mistress of the Boboon-and this is a very, very, very cool figure that uses a long slope piece asher dress, because she is a very tall woman in the movie. As shame says, oh,that's one tall, lady, very cool,...

...looking figure and she has a black hairpiece, which I normally wouldn't know, but we talk about that here and just asecond what the next said on this list. Additional you get Hadrad in this set,who is an exclusive version of haggard wearing a tie now this is not actuallyaccurate to this scene. He wears the tie in a different scene at the yoldball and I'm not really sure why exactly decide to include this versionhere, but Tsini a variant to get in this set it at the exact same haggardfigure, we've gun in other sets. Now there is no Harry Potter included whatthis set so yet again, another like a Harry Potter sat without Harry Potterhimself, which is very interesting. As for the build of this set, you get thecarriage which is basically a horse drawn, or in this case a pegasis drawncarriage that can fly and they have basically just a normal leal horse.Piece has introduced with the leave the ring set, Tackit Thousand and twelvewith some added wings that looks very cool and the character itself looksamazing. It's made out of light blue, dark red gold and Tan, it's very ornatein design, and it uses some fantastic studs, not on top AKA, not techniquesto accomplish its shape, and it has some stickers. It all looks very goodand actually has some pretty good play ability function as well. You can takeoff the room and kind of fold it up to basically represent the interior had alittle tea time, some space, where a many figures, and it makes her a nicelittle display scene and the back section actually has a small crate,with storage for Your Tea Cup, so very, very cool overall, definitely a randomscene for Lego to make, but I think they knew with the design, and I washonestly blown away with the bill here. One of my favorite Harry Potter,designs out there it's a really good set last, but certainly not least, hereis finally a hog wart set to talk about from the Harry Potter set spaced offthe Goblet of fire, and that is the Howart Clock Tower. This set was ninetyl with nine hundred and twenty two pieces, so a very good value and allthe figures included here are in there your ball attire. This is a your ballspecific sets. You get Harry Potter in his dress, Robe, you get wrong Wesleyand his iconic kind of ugly dress, robes that looks very cool. You get hermine here and obviously one of the most legendary parts. That movie is seeingher mine in her pink dress for the Yolaw and it's a great looking figureof thin exclusive hairpiece and they actually to kind of fit with the midlegsize of these characters. They printed her dress on to a brick piece which Ithink actually ended up working out pretty. Well, you also get our threeadditional champion: heries had our digere in his dress roads, you getvictor crumbed here with a red jacket and first scarf, but still has thatawful face in Haren combination. That looks nothing like Picter crumb and themovies you get Flor Delacour here who uses a dress piece from these, so lowsets that was introduced in two thousand and eighteen, it's actually agray dress and in my pinion floors, dress and Universe looks pretty average.I think she could have picked something a little bit better for this occasion.You also get dumble door here and exclusive very well, some violet robesthat looks really nice and you get mad a MAC scene wearing a white and pinkdress, and she has a brown hair piece here, which is weird because Madammaccan and the last that we just talked about had a black hair piece and thosesets were released at the same time. So I have no idea why, for some reason,the two different Mata maxine figures, Lego made at this point in time havecompletely different colored hair pieces. Very strange inconsistencybetween those two figures. As for the built of this set in particular, youget the Hog warts clock tower now the Cock Tower does appear briefly in likeone or two shots in goblet of fire. I always think out the clock tower beingiconic from the prisoner of Askabad. This section of the castle is veryprominent in prisoner of askin band, so it kind of makes more sense. I shouldhave been our prisoner of Askabad set,...

...but I'm not really Goin to complain toomuch about that and we did get our last version of this clock tower and theprisoner basket band wave in two thousand and four kind of just added tomy little thing about this being a more prisoner basket, band centric structurein the films. But this is a goblet of fire specific set the exterior here,it's a very nice size. It has some great shape from the outside and, ofcourse, the clock uses some printed dish pieces and a small printed cats inAmerica Shield piece with some really ornate and awesome. Looking graphicdesigns on there. I really love the clocks included with this set. You alsoget a couple of side sections here for this clock tower. There is kind of awrap around section with a small turret, and this, of course, can connect toother hog, wart set and then kind of transsentient to the interior of theset, which first off our first kind of main thing you see in the interior is asmall rendition of the Yule Ball itself, which has an interesting future Ur. Onekind of those plat gear pieces introduced with the leg. A movie parttwo sets that kind of spin around making it look like the characters aredancing which is a really cute and fun play bility function, and it has kindof the Whitey snow, aesthetic of the Yola. That looks really cool. Actually,a couple of tables with that kind of aesthetic and a Christmas treat areincluded on the side as well, which helps set the scene, and I really dolike that. The rest of the inside features the girls bathroom with a bigbath and a stick of the Mer people on the wall, which, if you had the goldenedict from the Dragon, say you can kind of reenact that scene to an extent allthe moaning myrtle was not included with this set and we don't have ashirtless varin of Harry Potter, but whatever I digress about those littleinaccuracies, you also get a really tiny version of dumble doors office.Here that is small and craned and honestly, I think Lega needs to make abigger hog ward set to make a better rendition of dumble doors office,because it's a very cool room in this, and I made a really cool set of it.With the Chamber of Secrets Line, I think, like oil, to make a much coolerset of dumble door's office. The bottom floor of the main section has a tinyGub, but of fire that is honestly kind of pathetic. It's just a simple gobletpiece with a flame coming on the top. I don't really understand why it looksquite like that. You also get a storage crate. The second floor is a simpleclassroom, and this top floor appears to be the medical wing. The hospitalwing of Hog Gorge, Tis, two beds, it's small, but it all works out, and I justrealized I myself something: There's not a goblet of fire. That comes in thegreat yard, said it's a try, Wishard Cup, so there's two different cups,which kind of gets a little bit o infusing. The tract was ard, cut consof the great drag tests, I'm going to kind of amend what I said there thatset comes with the transact. This one comes to the version of the goblet offire. Neither of them look particularly good. In my opinion, and overall it's agreat looking piece. It has lots of limited rooms really well done, and oneof my personal favorite hog word sets Lego has made to date and overallthere's not that many Gobio fire sets. I just talked about eight sets tothat's all we have from this movie and I would love to see some updatedversions of these scenes from the movie at some point in the future for Lego,Harry Potter. Maybe next year we'll see some of that stuff being released. Sothat's my conclusion for this review. Thank you so much for listening. I hopeyou enjoyed this episode. Go check me out online.
