Magic won’t help you figure out what is inside the Harry Potter LEGO Advent calendar. But we will.
If you’re impatient like I am, then you might not be able to wait until December 1st to start opening your Advent calendar. Or maybe there’s just one toy in there that you need to have right now, but you aren’t sure where in the calendar it resides. In Spoilin’ Santa series, we pop open a bunch of the most popular calendars early, so you can more easily find your favorite little gifts.
Today, we put together 24 tiny Harry Potter LEGO toys, so hop aboard the Hogwarts Express and join us on a journey through this calendar.
Just like with the Funko calendar, I am not surprised that Harry is the first character opened.
As far as unimpressive train sets go, this is at the top of the list. It seems like this is meant to be a mini Hogwarts Express, to perhaps go under the Christmas tree.
Cute, but not exactly exciting to open.
Another tree, so soon?
I like Gryffindor, this is fine.
She looks a little less tired than Funko McGonagall. And based on our main photo, she knows how to party.
Like I said with the Star Wars calendar, some days, you’re going to open things that are not exciting on their own, but will help you build an overall LEGO set.
*muttering to myself* They’re setting a scene.
So, the flags should all have been in ONE day. Not four.
I am not a huge Ron fan, but this Ron is adorable. I love that he and Harry are wearing their classic Molly Weasley Christmas sweaters.
I can’t believe there were TWO table days.
Plus, some type of pie and we think either mince pies or cookies. But really, day 12 is a CROISSANT.
Imagine being a kid and opening FOUR sets of flags over the course of 24 days.
Hermione’s face = my face after we opened four flags and two tables.
Cute, but did this deserve to be opened on its own?
*The pieces will not move on their own.*
The last of the flags, finally.
Chelsea was honest-to-God upset about Flitwick’s inclusion, but I think it makes sense to include him, seeing as he is the one helping charm a lot of the Christmas decorations (I.E. the floating candles) in the Great Hall.
Chelsea felt like the berries on this wreath looked more like cherries.
At first, we thought this was a box with all four Hogwarts houses on it. But, after we opened one of the next days, we learned it is a pedestal.
I do not say this lightly. What. The. FUCK. Now, we had to look this up. We knew it was a statue, obviously. Are you scratching your head over this, like “who is the Architect of Hogwarts?” No one knows this guy. He is nameless! The statue only appears in three Harry Potter movies. It is background decor. And yet, LEGO included this in the calendar over many beloved Hogwarts professors? I’d rather open four more trees than this DAMN statue.
I’ve seen the Harry Potter films so many times, I can’t even begin to count. The only time I remember seeing this statue is not in the movies, but when I visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal. So, there’s that.
I mean, thank god Dumbledore came next, or else I’d have just screamed for an hour after opening that statue.
Dude. Really, the 2nd to last opening in the calendar is present boxes? The Star Wars calendar had this too.
And, on the 24th day of Christmas, you get... a LUMP OF COAL, for looking early!
Hedwig definitely saved the end of this calendar. The little details of a Hogwarts trunk and letter are also nice.
Okay, so we know that not everyone can be included in a calendar. But was it necessary to open four days worth of flags, instead of getting Snape and Hagrid? And again, I really would have liked a Voldemort in this set. Voldemort is a year-round villain! I don’t understand why no one includes him.
