Take a quick tour of the LEGO Harry Potter set 40452 Hogwarts Gryffindor Dorms offered from October 25 from 100 € of purchase in products of the range. There is no real need to try to convince many fans of the Harry Potter universe about this small promotional product which will gladly complement the modular version of Hogwarts available since this summer.
This somewhat minimalist dormitory can indeed be integrated into the overall construction made up of sets 76386 Hogwarts: Polyjuice Potion Mistake (€ 19.99), 76387 Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter (39.99 €) and 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets (139.99 €) thanks to its adapted format and its integrated connection points. The real problem here is rather to find what to buy for a hundred euros in order to obtain this small set, knowing that many fans have not waited for this offer to complete their collection with the sets available since the summer.
The content of the set is like that of the other boxes with which this product can be combined: sufficiently detailed and correctly furnished to convince despite the relatively small space. The two canopy beds are well made, LEGO is not stingy with accessories and the set allows you to obtain four random Chocolate Frog cards to complete your collection or trade doubles with your friends.
For comparison, the sets 76386 Hogwarts: Polyjuice Potion Mistake et 76387 Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter only allow you to get two cards and the set 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets which still requires spending 140 € provides only 6 copies. This promotional product therefore offers a great opportunity at this level, knowing that the dormitory wall, the interior of which is removable, will eventually be used to display the complete collection of 16 cards. In the set I received from LEGO: Newt Scamander, Jocunda Sykes, Olympe Maxime and Rowena Ravenclaw.
For the rest, the product is obviously aimed at die-hard fans who need an extra part for their "20th anniversary" version of Hogwarts, others will probably see only an additional drain on the license.
The two minifigs delivered in this little one are unfortunately not unpublished, nor should the kindness of the manufacturer be abused: Harry Potter and Ron Weasley are already delivered in this form in the set. 75953 Hogwarts Whomping Willow (2018). Ron is also offered identically is in the set 75968 4 Privet Drive (2020). Nothing serious, collectors are used to accumulating duplicates, this is the price to pay when embarking on an exhaustive collection.
On arrival, there is no real debate to be had around this product: this promotional set is exclusive to the official store and it will not be possible to buy it separately except through secondary market resellers. who will not fail to charge you for it at full price. It's Harry Potter, it's thought to arouse the interest of the most assiduous fans, the product fits into a global diorama, it offers a few items to collect and the minimum purchase amount to obtain it is relatively reasonable if we take into account the manufacturer's pricing policy. Despite its two minifigs which are not unpublished, this set therefore ticks all the boxes of the ideal promotional product and it will undoubtedly be sold out very quickly.
Note: The set presented here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at November 7, 2021 next at 23pm.

I don't work for LEGO®, I am not corrupted by LEGO®, I buy my LEGO® myself and what I am given, I offer it to the readers of the site.
For the rest, the owners of the respective brands mentioned on the site remain the owners and it is very well like that, blablabla ....
The fact that LEGO thrills by sending sets for reviews and other tests obviously does not influence my opinion on these products.
