Lego enthusiasts and Harry Potter fans are in for a magical treat with the unveiling of the Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat set. This first-ever Lego Harry Potter set with a sound brick promises an immersive experience, bringing to life one of the most iconic elements from the Wizarding World.
The set, officially known as Harry Potter Talking Sorting Hat (76429), features a whopping 561 pieces, including the centerpiece: a large Sorting Hat capable of producing 31 different sound combinations when batteries (included) are inserted.
Priced at $99.99, the set is scheduled for release on March 1, although there is a possibility that this date is subject to change.
This innovative Lego set is not just a static display piece – it offers an interactive experience for fans. With a randomized sound brick, users can tip the hat or place it on their heads to hear the Sorting Hat's voice, which will sort them into one of the four Hogwarts houses or deliver memorable phrases from the books and movies. This inclusion of the sound brick adds a new level of immersion to the Lego building experience.
Furthermore, the set comes with a display stand featuring Harry Potter's minifigure, a nod to the memorable scene from the first film where Harry is sorted into Gryffindor, and the crests of the Hogwarts houses, enhancing its collectible value and display potential.
