We've received some Harry Potter minifigures to review and here are our quick thoughts. The quality of the minifigures we received was nothing less than you'd come to expect from LEGO Group which is to say, fantastic. The outer packaging looks so good that you might even want to keep a few unopened blind bags for your collection.
The character checklist included in each bag is well illustrated and of high detail. It outlines all 22 collectable minifigures and includes mini-instructions for the 5 minifigures that require some more detailed step-by-step assembly instructions.
The minifigures we received perfectly matched the images released by LEGO so there won't be any disappointment with the final product received. The characters with wands each came with 2 wands which is a great idea given how small they are as they may be easily lost. Overall I was incredibly impressed with the Harry Potter minifigures series and put this as a "must have" for any Harry Potter fan.
