Harry Potter fans will be delighted to hear they can now pre-order the LEGO Harry Potter Hedwig for $39.99. The set includes 630 pieces as well as a base for Hedwig, a detachable LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure with a scarf and wand, and a mini Hedwig toy with spread wings.
In this set, Hedwig is displayed in flight, carrying an important letter (hopefully it’s good news and not a Howler). Hedwig measures over 7 inches from beak to tail and his wingspan measures over 13 inches, so the set it is big enough (and absolutely cool enough) to sit on your desk or shelves. A manual-turn handle on the base moves Hedwig’s articulated wings up and down in a smooth and realistic motion (no batteries required). The owl looks amazingly detailed and beautiful, and the ability to move his wings IRL makes for a pretty impressive set overall for Harry Potter fans and LEGO enthusiasts alike.
Although the adorable set doesn’t officially release until August 1, you can pre-order it now via the LEGO web store. LEGO has a limit of two Hedwig pre-orders per household.
