Lego 75955 – Hogwarts Express

I’m not a particular fan of the Harry Potter sets, but I couldn’t be indifferent to this new train, the Hogwarts Express. The new Wizarding world set features a new Locomotive with a carriage, a nice but very particular railway station, and six mini-figures (Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Remus Lupin, Trolley Witch and Dementor) with assorted accessories, in a total of eight hundred and one pieces.

Lego 10259 – Winter Village Station

With three hundred and sixty pieces, this set has four mini-figures (two passengers, a station guard and the taxi driver), a convenience store, a ticket machine, the bridge structure with two floors and four railway tracks. Besides that, there are lots of accessories all around the station: lamps, a garbage can, bottles in the selling point, flowers, two chairs and much more. Continue reading
