With 16 characters, some new, some old and some with fresh accessories, you will be able to recreate many of your most favourite scenes from the Harry Potter films.
This Harry Minifigure isn't a far stretch from the Harry that comes with the 'Attack on the Burrow' and 'Forbidden Forrest' sets, the difference is he is feeling the winter chill a bit more this time around has gone for a more conservative zipped look. He comes with the 'Advanced Potion Making' book, which will be handy for any advanced wizard.
Of course, he comes with his wand in dark brown and has a double-sided printed face, chilled and shocked.
Professor Albus Dumbledore
Everybody's favourite headmaster in the wizarding world returns, this time with his Phoenix Fawkes. They have been kind enough to give our pal Dumbledore two faces, a slight smile, and a slightly larger smile. Which is cool because he is a diverse character, but Albus has a huge biker beard that it's hidden behind! He could be sucking a lollypop under there and we wouldn't be the wiser. Could this be the most pointless LEGO printed part ever?!

Hermione is no stranger to the LEGO Minifigure world or striped sweaters, and this Minifig brings both. But, recreating the scene from Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince, Granger comes with a glass of Butterbeer, all that is missing is the froth on her upper lip. She comes with a light brown wand and alternate faces.
Another character familiar with a striped sweater in the HP world is Ron, who is joining Hermione for a Butterbeer, helping us complete The Half Blood Prince scene. Ron comes with a mirrored face to Hermione's reactions and a medium brown wand.
Luna loves standing out and she has done it again! This time coming complete with the Gryffindor headdress. She also has a hairpiece for those less dramatic moments, a medium brown wand and alternate faces.
Griphook has had a major LEGO makeover for 2020! His first appearance in the LEGO world we saw him with an unpainted moulded head. Looking back at it, it's creepy! Although this one doesn't have a nose, he has a lot more character about him and a very cool sword upgrade! There is no alternate face for Griphook, something Dumbledore could learn from.
In her first appearance as a LEGO Minifigure, Harry's mother Lily comes complete with baby Harry and a dark brown wand (10¼", Willow, swishy for those playing at home). Not a terribly exciting figure, but a necessary one.
They couldn't give us Lily without including Harry's pure-blood wizard father James. Also making his debut as a LEGO Minifigure, he comes with the famous flashback memory of the fam (framed), his iconic John Lennon glasses, scarf and medium brown wand. Oh! And don't forget his alternate faces, a slight smile and an extremely happy smile!
Remember the dress Ginny wore when she rocked up to the Slug Plug Christmas Party? Or are you more familiar with the dessert menu? Well here are both as a reminder! Ginny comes in the famous green dress, with her chocolate sundae and a dark wand to match.
One half of the double trouble and one-quarter of the Weasley offspring, Fred comes with one of the cooler accessories in this series, his Triwizard Tournament gambling box, which has the chalkboard betting odds printed inside the case. You get a spare of each of the cards as well!
George lucked out accessories wise, coming with the Marauders map, although essential for HP movie enthusiasts it's not an exciting accessory. Joining the striped sweater gang, I do love George's alternate smiling face, what a fun smile!
Messy hair don't care, this dark character is perfectly represented, coming complete with a prison name card and handcuffs. Her alternate face is quite creepy also, depicting the characters change in personalities nicely!
Another character making her first appearance as a LEGO Minifigure, she comes with Tom Riddle's diary and as an extra touch by LEGO, she actually smells like a restroom! Not really, just seeing if you are still reading.
Professor Pomona Sprout
In her second LEGO appearance, Pomona has had a hair and hat revamp and comes complete with a Mandrake. Thanks to her fashionable ear muffs she is all smiles in her alternate face.
With a book that will instantly attack anyone who attempts to open it, what a better character than Neville to have The Monster Book of Monsters as his accessory. His alternate face isn't too much of a stretch between the two, they might as well have given him a beard like good ol' Albus.
The LEGO 71028 CMF Harry Potter Series 2
