LEGO just announced the latest addition to its Harry Potter line, and it’s sure to be instantly iconic. The set—the Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition—releases on September 2 and features over 3,000 pieces and a nostalgic nod to the Wizarding World.
The set’s centerpiece is Harry’s owl, Hedwig, with spread wings perched atop a stack of other items from the series. You’ll also see the Golden Snitch, Tom Riddle’s diary, Harry’s glasses and wand, a chocolate frog, a school scarf, books, and five potions (including Gillyweed and some Polyjuice Potion). Of course, no LEGO set would be complete without a few Minifigures, and this set is no exception. You’ll see Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid, and Minerva McGonagall here as well, on a stand in front of a chocolate frog card box.

Perhaps the most interesting inclusion, however, is the Hogwarts acceptance letter. Not only does it round out the aesthetics of the set, but you can also sign your name on it and make the set personalized. Altogether, the set measures approximately 17 inches tall, 20 inches wide, and 13 inches deep, and features a bespoke stand and celebratory tile to mark the 20th anniversary of LEGO Harry Potter.
LEGO Designer Marcos Bessa said, “The timeless magic of Harry Potter never leaves you, and this new LEGO set is our way of celebrating 20 years of LEGO Harry Potter and the wonderful people and things found in it. Every item in the set is filled with memories, from winning quidditch matches to iconic potion ingredients, not to mention getting that all-important letter. Building the Hogwarts Icons Collectors’ Edition Set is sure to bring fond recollections back for Wizarding World and LEGO fans alike, with this beautiful centrepiece.”
The set will be available around the same time school starts up again: September 2, 2021. You’ll be able to purchase it from LEGO stores or from LEGO’s site. It’s set to be priced at $249.99.
