6th November 2018

By Leila El-Dean

I like tea, travel, cameras, food and hot sauce.


If you've ever dreamt of getting a ticket aboard the Hogwart's Express, running down Platform 9¾ at King's Cross and buying a chocolate frog from your favourite Witch Trolley, well this is the LEGO set for you. You've heard right. LEGO has teamed up with the Harry Potter franchise to bring you the LEGO 75955 Hogwart's Express train set.

All Aboard

Each set contains 801 pieces which have been separated into 7 separate bags along with step-by-step instructions and a sticker sheet. Other than the obvious (you're less likely to lose pieces), it's great that you can build this in stages. For kids with short attention spans, they at least have something to play with during the lull periods in construction. The whole build takes anywhere between 3 hours to one day depending on your skill level and commitment to completing, so younger kids may need breaks or help from parents along the way.

More Than Meets The Eye

The LEGO 75955 Hogwart's Express train set is essentially split into two - the Hogwart's Express Train and the 9¾ Platform at King's Cross. While the Platform is incredibly detailed, it's definitely the easier of the two to build and serves more as a backdrop to the entire LEGO set. There are some wonderful details however, such as the movable clock hands, spinning wall between platforms 9 and 10 and the news stand complete with newspapers. Once built, it measure approximately 5 Inch (13 cm) high, 12 Inch (31 cm) wide and 6 Inch (17 cm) deep.

My only real gripe about the platform is the use of stickers. Considering the price, it would have been a nice for items like the wanted poster and King's Cross station sign for example were actual painted bricks rather than stickers which require a steady hand to place. I think we can all agree stickers can be pretty stress inducing especially with prying eyes. Not to mention the fact it makes it look a little on the cheap side. That said, the stickers are detailed enough, so provided you bring your A game, it should look good enough. You can always try praying to the LEGO Gods that there's no bubbles, creases or distractions (good luck to you).

On Track

The train on-the-other-hand, although still fairly easy to put together, has moving pieces and a more complex engine to put together. Therefore younger builders may require adult assistance. The Hogwart's Express Train is definitely the star of the show and will appeal to both Harry Potter and Train enthusiasts alike - assuming they don't mind a few inaccuracies. Like other train builds, you can motorise the engine using one of LEGO's special kits. I haven't tried this myself, but I have seen a number of videos on YouTube that have done so with great success.

Unfortunately this set doesn't include train tracks, but supposedly this set fits most standard LEGO train tracks - you just have to buy them separately. The tracks should also fit inside the station, which is a nice touch. Another nifty feature is the removable roof and sides which allows for roleplay and to rein act famous scenes from the film using the included mini fig characters, props and accessories.

Once built, the Hogwarts Express measures over 3 Inch (9 cm) high, 18 Inch (46 cm) long and 1 Inch (5 cm) wide. So if you're planning on displaying this, make sure you have room. If not, as usual LEGO have included a handy LEGO brick separator which allows you to get creative with the bricks once you're done.

Tickets Please

Of course the set includes a number of familiar faces (Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Trolley Witch, Professor Lupin and Dementor min figs) which can also be used with the other Harry Potter themed LEGO sets. And while the Trolley Witch face has seemingly been borrowed from Spiderman's Aunt May character, they are all of the usual high quality. What's great about them is the fact you can turn their heads for different expressions depending on the scene. Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Professor Lupin also come with wands which is a great to see. The set also includes a few pops such as a sweets trolley for the Trolley Witch and a luggage trolley for Ron Weasley's suitcases.

The Verdict

While not the most complex of LEGO builds, it should keep the majority of builders busy for at least a few hours. Once complete, it will make a lovely statement piece on your shelf or made into a working train by making a few modifications. It's a shame this set doesn't come with tracks (it is a train set after all), but these can be easily purchased along with the LEGO Functions kits to motorise the Hogwart's Express Train. In all, the LEGO 75955 Hogwart's Express train set is perfect for Harry Potter fans both big and small. The details are fun and pretty spot on. There's very few negatives to buying this LEGO set.
