LEGO® Set 4866 – The Knight Bus (2nd Edition)

This is the second version of the wizarding world's Knight Bus. There are many similarities between the two versions in that they are both double-decker purple buses. The main differences between the two is what's included with the buses.

The first edition came with a bush, lamp post, trunk, owl (Hedwig), dog (Sirius Black), Harry Potter, and Stan Shunpike. The second edition includes a trunk, owl (Hedwig), Harry Potter, Stan Shunpike, and Ernie Prang. The both also have the shrunken head, but the head in the first version is a sticker on the windshield, while the head in this version is a round LEGO® brick with the head's face on it.

As to the buses themselves, the main differences there are in the back of each bus. The back of the first bus on the first story is enclosed, just like the rest of the bus. But on this bus the back on the first story is partially open with a pole. This allows Harry to enter the bus from the back if he wants, or he can ride the bus while holding on to the pole. Given how Ernie likes to drive, though, this may not be the safest way to ride the bus!
