LEGO® Set 4768 – The Durmstrang Ship

The Durmstrang Ship is the ship that Professor Karkaroff and the students from Durmstrang Institute used to travel from their school to Hogwarts. Their ship magically appeared in the lake at Hogwarts just in time for the Triwizard Tournament in the fourth story.

The most famous student from Durmstrang was Viktor Krum. He was both a school student and an internationally famous Quidditch player. Earlier that year Ron Weasley invited Harry Potter and Hermione Granger to go with him and his family to see the Quidditch World Cup, an event that Viktor Krum played in. Harry soon learned that Ron idolized Viktor and Ron was as star struck as the girls of Hogwarts when he saw that Viktor was among the Durmstrang students who arrived for the Tournament.

This playset has done a wonderful job of recreating the Durmstrang ship. There are actually two editions of this ship - the regular edition and a Target Exclusive edition. They are identical in every way except that the Target Exclusive edition included four extra minifigures: Dumbledore, Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

I had originally thought the four bonus minifigs were exclusive to this set only, but that's not true. If you have any of the sets listed below then you will have the minifigs that were included in the Target Exclusive:

The ship has three levels, including sleeping cabins and the captain's cabin. There are crow's nests, trap doors, and, of course, sails.

    I own an unopened Lego Harry Potter 4768 set. It is of no interest to me. Do you know anyone who would buy it.

      I recommend that you sell it on eBay. If you price it competitively I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll sell it because this is a set that is harder to find, especially if it’s unopened.
