LEGO® Set 4708 – Hogwarts Express (1st Edition)

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 8:14PM

Every student of Hogwarts knows that there is only one way to get to school - by riding on the Hogwarts Express! This is the first of many versions of the magical train and it is the only one that also includes Platform 9 3/4.

One side of the platform is of the Muggles side in King's Cross Station. But there is a secret entrance on this side that magically transports students to the other side via a rotating door. Once students pass through the barrier they will be able to board the Hogwarts Express. Just don't be late or you might miss the train!

The roof of the train comes off so that you can move the minifigs around from one area of the train to another. You probably remember that Harry Potter's first trip on the Hogwarts Express was also the first time he got a Chocolate Frog card, which was of Dumbledore. This set includes a tile with a hologram version of Dumbledore which is the Lego version of the Chocolate Frog trading cards that is really neat.
