As we saw at the start of the week LEGO announced two new additions to their Art theme. Both Mickey & Minnie, and The four Hogwarts House Crests.
Each set will feature one of four House Crests, this is great if you have already choosen, or have been choosen, to reside in a particular house and wish to be loyal and to keep costs down. However it has been revealed that you can combine all four sets to make one giant mosaic in the form of the Hogwarts Crest itself!
The RRP for each mosaic set is Each mosaic costs £114.99 ($119.99USD). This means that if you want to construct the giant Hogwarts Crest you’ll need to shell out for four individual sets bumping the price up obviously four times making it £459.96!
I understand they are aimed at us Adult fans, hence the 18+ branding, and that we can relax and take our sweet time to listen to the included podcast, but it is a hefty amount of money for something that is mostly made up of 1×1 studs. However the finished article is very impressive and would definitely be a conversation starter at dinner parties and alike.
The downloadable soundtrack/podcast highlights some of the goings on behind the scenes including information on the creation of the LEGO Art Hogwarts Crests and the Harry Potter movies.
