Professor Lupin might have looked shabby in his worn clothes but he really knew his stuff! He was the first Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher who actually taught useful information to his students.
Not only was Lupin a great teacher but he also had a way of making lessons fun. A perfect example of this was his lesson about defending against Boggarts. Neville Longbottom admitted that his greatest fear was Professor Snape and Lupin was able to help Neville see Snape in a very humorous way by forcing the Boggart's Snape look like a ridiculous version of Neville's grandmother.
You can recreate this scene because LEGO® included the Boggart version of Snape where he was dressed in clothes worn by Neville's grandmother. This is the only set where you can get Boggart Snape.
Lupin's classroom is full of fun details. There is the cabinet where the Boggart was hiding, a book of spells, a chocolate bar (the best known cure for what ails you!), potions, and there are even three skulls. I have to admit that the item I love the most is Lupin's brown briefcase. This is a small detail that shows LEGO® cared about the fans of Harry Potter stories because Lupin was often seen with his briefcase.
