Here’s your first look at the hi resolution images from the long rumoured Gringott’s bank With over 4800 pieces and 14 minifigures, it is designed to fit in to be part of your diagonally display. It will be released on September 1 for VIPs and 4th September: Everyone else. It is priced at AUD629.99/ USD429.99/ £369.99/429.99€
One of the first major releases since Discovery took over Warner Brothers, Wizarding world is now under construction in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products. A somewhat unwieldy name, if I say so myself.
There have been at least 2 previous versions of Gringotts: 4723 in 2002 as well as part of 10217 Diagon Alley in 2012. Without a doubt, this is the most detailed version to date.
As well as including the main part of the bank, this version also includes the underground vault, along with the carts that are joining all of the vaults together. The bank itself can be lifted off, and separated from the underground part of the build, while a tram car can run between the vaults.
The set is designed to be displayed in conjunction with the full 75978 Diagon Alley from 2020. Also, it comes with a Ukrainian Iron Belly Dragon, happy to nestle on top of the bank, providing additional security.
There is a fantastic collection of Minifigures, with 13 minifigures, based on characters from the movie. These figures include 2 versions of Harry Potter™ along with Rubeus Hagrid, Griphook, Bogrod, Ricbert, a Death Eater, two goblin bankers and two guards. Dragomir Despard and Bellatrix Lestrange can be transformed into Ron Weasley,and Hermione Granger respectively,
This set strives to bring context from both the First Book (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone), where he discovers the wonder of his secret wizrad hoarde, and the Deathly hallows, as the team don disguises in their attempt to hunt down the Horcruxes.

This has been a long time coming, rumoured on and off for a few years: I have to admit, I like the details used in both the interior and exterior aspects of the model, while being able to run the mine-cart down to the vaults is an inspired choice.
