Along with scoop on Potter-related screen, stage, books, and more; this week brings news from the world of licensed Potter products and toys.

Lego enthusiasts and Harry Potter fans alike are keeping the brick collector online forums buzzing this week. Rumors are circulating that new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Lego sets and a Collectible Minifigure Series will be available in 2018. According to thebrickfan.com by way of the popular Lego hobbyist forum eurobricks.com, both may be on shelves next fall in conjunction with the release of the second Fantastic Beasts film. Lego released multiple sets for each of the Harry Potter films until 2011. Even with a Fantastic Beasts Lego Dimensions Story Pack out last year as covered here by Leaky, it’s been a long await for avid collectors. The news is exciting, but just a rumor at this point. Stay tuned here for the official word from Lego.

Also this week from the world of licensed collectible giant Funko, comes word of a new Funko Pop! Harry Potter figure exclusively available at boxlunch.com. This civic-minded specialty retailer sells licensed and non-licensed gifts and collectibles as well as apparel, accessories and homegoods. With every $10 spent on their licensed products they help provide a meal through the organization Feeding America.  

Their exclusive Pop! shows Harry holding the Firebolt racing broom he received from Sirius after his Nimbus 2000 was whomped by the Whomping Willow. Harry used his Firebolt in every quidditch match after thereafter. Fans can add this new figure to their Potter collection and help a worthy cause at the same time.
