LEGO Harry Potter: Hogwarts Express D2C revealed

LEGO 76405 Hogwarts Express Collectors Edition

Update:
Contrary to expectations, LEGO officially revealed the Hogwarts Express today, whether this is related to the leaks caused by an error in shipping we will leave open. In any case, we have revised the article for you and added the new pictures.

Original:
The time has finally come, there are first images of the new LEGO Harry Potter D2C, the Hogwarts Express. The pictures are coming from the Reddit user LegendofTovon, who indeed received the set by mistake instead of the Lion Knight's Castle that he actually expected when he ordered it online. However, the Hogwarts Express won't be available for purchase until the intended release date of August 31st.

Thanks to the images we can now take a first look at the details of the set, the interior as well as some new exclusive Minifigures.

The $500 set consists of the train, the underlying rail bed and a part of King's Cross station, to be more precise the Platform 9 3/4 on which the final scene of the last part of Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows can be re-enacted. There is also a little plaque, similar to the ones seen in Star Wars UCS sets, with details about the Hogwarts Express, attached to the bottom of the platform.

The train itself is simply huge with a length of 118cm and a height of 26cm and consists of the locomotive itself, a tender and one passenger wagon. There are three compartments in total, one each to recreate iconic scenes from the first, third and sixth movie. Each compartment features a tile with a famous quote from the related scene. In addition, 3 light bricks are illuminating what's happening in the compartments.

The Minifigures:

Matching the scenes, the matching Minifigures are also included. Among other things, for the first time adult Harry and his wife Ginny as well as their children. Adult Hermione, Ron or Draco are unfortunately missing.
