5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for Harry Potter fans 23 Aug 2011
We've now ordered two of these books. We already had the Lego Star Wars Visual Dictionary which is excellent, so our expectation was high for this one. We have not been disappointed - or our son hasn't! Highly recommended for Lego and Harry Potter fans. It has now inspired the building of many Harry Potter scenes. A great price - value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Anthology of Potter Lego. 1 July 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not withstanding the fact that Lego have just extended their range of Harry Potter lego, this is still a fantastic book.

My daughter loved it. It's crammed with both potter and lego facts and I was delighted to learn from her when lego issued it's fist Potter kits.

It comes with a collectable Harry Potter figure as well as the lovely Doring Kingsley layout that we've all come to know and love.

THis is a must for any Harry Potter Lego aficionado.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Collectors!!!! 14 July 2011
By Callie
I really enjoyed this book - detailed with great pictures. Perfect if you are a collector or if you just love Lego. The pictures of all the character variations at the back are really good - wish the Star Wars Lego Visual Dictionary had the same. The minifigure that comes with this book is really cool too - well worth the money!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic 8 Nov 2011
This is a great book, for anyone who loves Harry Potter and/are Lego.

The book is full of great pictures of some of the Harry Potter Lego sets, with some BRICK FACTS,:- just some interesting things about some of the Lego pieces.

The book, also gives you a TIMELINE, at the front, and shows you all the Harry Potter sets (small pictures), & when they were made.

The Harry Potter sets started in 2001, & ten years later, Lego has created 50 Harry Potter sets.

At the back of the book there are pictures of ALL the Harry Potter characters, who they are, when they were made, & from which set they came.

A super book, and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up on my shelf with the book series. 2 Dec 2011
By J.Hayre
If you're like my dad and think this is a horrible, cheap book designed to get you to buy more LEGO, you're wrong. Because most of the stuff in this book is old 2001 LEGO you can't buy any more. However, I've had a go at recreating many of the old sets due to the high quality and amount of pictures in this book.
This is a MUST HAVE for ANY LEGO fan, especially because of the amazing figure it comes with-Harry Potter preparing for the Yule Ball. It has back printing and the classic Harry dual sided face.
Overall this is a 10/10, well worth buying and will make a great gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars a magical book 26 Oct 2011
i got this book for my birthday and it is a great book, it has loads of detail, there are sets shown in the book which i never new existed, Durmstrang ship, graveyard dual, hungarian horntail to name but a few, it is great studying the way the characters have changed over the years. If i can't own every minifigure at least i can look at them and read about them.
