LEGO® Set 4762 – Rescue from the Merpeople

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 5:31PM

Do you remember who was Harry Potter's Wheezy? It was the thing Harry would miss most and turned out to be his best mate, Ron Weasley. Ron, along with three other people, were hidden at the bottom of the school's lake in the village of the Merpeople, waiting to be rescued by the four Triwizard champions for the second task. Those four people were Ron (for Harry), Hermione Granger (for Viktor Krum), Cho Chang (for Cedric Diggory), and Gabrielle Delacour (for Fleur Delacour).

This playset recreates the underwater scene of the second challenge. Four of the eight characters were not included (Cho, Fleur, Cedric, and Gabrielle) but the four that are included look great. The heads for the Ron, Hermione, and Harry minifigures have two sides. One side for all three is awake and normal, while the other side for Harry has gills so he can breath underwater and the other sides for Ron and Hermione are asleep.

Harry is dressed in his bathing suit and he has flippers so he can swim. Viktor is also dressed in a bathing suit and his hair can be replaced with a shark's head. (I forgot to put Viktor's hair on him when I took a picture of the minifigs so I apologize for his bald look!)

Almost all of the Harry Potter LEGO® playsets contain secrets for you to discover and this set is no exception. Ron and Hermione stand on a hidden teeter totter that propels them upward when they are rescued. Get too close to the small blue building and a lobster just might come flying out to protect it's domain. This is a well done playset.
