LEGO® Set 4720 – Knockturn Alley

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 6:31PM

Remember the scene from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where Harry uses floo powder for the first time but instead of landing in Diagon Alley he turns up in Knockturn Alley? The store he landed in was called Borgin and Burkes and with this set you get to see how Lego envisioned this store that specializes in dark magic.

This set is full of wonderfully creepy items and tons of details. First, there is the fireplace that Harry came from that is connected to the Floo Network (that's the building on the far left in the left image). You can put Harry in a hidden compartment then pull out a piece and watch as Harry goes flying into the store!

Then there is the store itself. It is jam packed with goodies, including creepy heads, the Hand of Glory (those of you who have read the books will know what this is), and a jar with brains in it.

Borgin and Burkes is a store that no respectable wizard would find himself in. Yet when Harry ends up there he sees Draco Malfoy and Lucius Malfoy shopping there (the Malfoys were there in the book but not the movie). Why would Lucius Malfoy be shopping in a place so clearly full of dark magical objects?
