Catch the Golden Snitch and win the match for Gryffindor!
Marcus Flint and the Slytherin team are winning; Gryffindor’s only chance to win is if Harry Potter is the first Seeker to catch the Golden Snitch. Beat the bludgers away, soar through goal posts, a tower or over the stands, fire catapults, catch the Snitch, then fly away through the Ravenclaw Tower with the trophy.

All the minifigs have plain legs, and well printed torsos. 3 (Hooch, Potter and Malfoy) have double sided heads with different expressions. All figs come with brooms and there are clubs for the two beaters. Also included are flying helmets as an alternative to the hair-pieces, although oddly only enough for half the players.
The main assembly is a grandstand from which Madam Hooch can oversee the match, along with three goals set at different heights. you get a small stand with an impressively large trophy. Two small catapults for flinging the balls around and a chest full of balls (spare balls are included too).
The worst part of the construction was the flexible gold bars that form the hoops of the goals. These were very stiff to insert into the tops of the goalposts and it is very easy to end up with oval rather than round goals. I can imagine younger children struggling with this (the box states ages 6-12).
* Lots of figures, enough for a proper game
* Double sided faces adds flexibility.
* Spare helmets and balls increases playability
* Lots of accessories: a broom each plus clubs
* Faces, uniforms and colour schemes well matched to the film characters
* Hoops tops hard to construct
* Trophy is too big! It looks great on the stand, but ridiculous next to a figure.
* Madam Hooch's alternate face makes her look like a vampire.Read more ›
But with the Lego Harry Potter quidditch set it feels as though around 80% goes to the Harry Potter franchise. It certainly doesn't go into the contents of the set! It is small and there is very little to actually build. In simple terms, pound for pound,you get very little Lego and very little building for your money. This cost more than the Lego TIE fighter LEGO Star Wars 9492: Tie Fighter which is a challenging build and a substantial piece of Lego. I would really struggle to find any redeeming feature of this Lego set given the price, it represents exceptionally poor value for money, even if you are used to the eye watering prices charged for franchised Lego.
Summary? Don't buy it.
For a bit more money, Lego Harry Potter Hagrid's Hut is available and I would have no hesitation in recommending that set over this. For the sake of completeness, this is a set worth purchasing for any Lego Harry Potter fan, and the minifgs are rather good, but other sets are better value for money and I would probably only purchase once everything else has been bought.
