Old Harry Potter sets

7 posts in this topic

I recently bought a huge lot of the first rounds of the HP LEGO line, and found really cool how well they fit together to make the complete Hogwarts Castle with almost every single room, as well as some of the other locations.

 

The newer 4842 is definitely the best looking HP castle, but to be honest had I been into this back when the original sets were released I would have probably preferred those to the new ones.

 

A little video where you can see all of the sets put together:

I went through a Harry Potter lego phase and got them all minus the centre piece (the castle itself!) never unboxed them yet though. In the process I got scammed out of the original train and it put me off HP lego!  :sick:

 

They do look really cool though and it would be nice to see Lego combine more sets  :thumbsup:

I just picked up a HP set from 2010. It "seems" to new unopened.  But, it doesn't have the little tape seals on the end.

Anyone know what year Lego started using the tape on boxes? Maybe the little set never had tape?

I am going to sell this set, want to advertise as New Unopened.  But making sure 1st. 

thanks

If it's a small set like Freeing Dobby or Forbidden Forest they were probably the punch open type boxes with the perforation on the back.  Anything larger than that should have tape seals.

Yup. The 2 sets Huskers mentioned are the punch type boxes. The 3rd smallest set(4737 Quidditch Match ) used tape seals.
