LEGO® Set 4750 – Draco’s Encounter with Buckbeak

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 6:27PM

Draco Malfoy was known for thinking he knew better than most of the people around him, including teachers. Therefore, it was no surprise when Draco ignored Hagrid's instructions about how to properly approach a Hippogriff and got hurt as a result of his actions.

This is a small set but it goes great with the larger castle sets or with Hagrid's Hut. The set includes Draco and Buckbeak (obviously!) but that's not all. Don't let the size of this set fool you - Lego included a few secrets.

Next to the tree is a chest that opens and closes. I think it is Buckbeak's food trough but you can use it to hide things in. Just under the tree you will find a pumpkin growing there, which is a nice nod to Hagrid who grew gigantic pumpkins in this story.

Also included is the Monster Book of Monsters in LEGO® brick format. This is a rather rare LEGO® piece since the book is only available in four Harry Potter Lego sets.

Then, there is Buckbeak. Do you remember how you approach a Hippogriff? You avoid eye contact and bow low to them. The head of the Hippogriff minifig is able to bow in return so you can decide if Buckbeak will allow your minifigs to go for a ride or if they will be attacked.
