LEGO Harry Potter Minifigures: Ginny Weasley

LEGO Harry Potter Ginny Weasley in School UniformNow Showing
The future Mrs. Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, is appearing in sets 4840, The Burrows, and 4841, the 2010 version of The Hogwarts Express. These figures are the first version of Ginny to appear in flesh tones. The previous figure last appeared in 2003 (hp030).

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
Ginny is composed of four parts: hairpiece, head, torso, and legs.

LEGO Harry Potter Ginny WeasleyThe hairpiece is a new style not previously available. The over the shoulder cut has not been seen on previous figures. The hair is the same between the two variants.

The head is also the same for the two figures featuring freckles on each cheek.

The torsos and legs of each figure are the key differences between each. The school uniform featured on the figure from The Hogwarts Express appears on many of the other students, including the Gryffindor coat of arms.

The figure from The Burrows, however, has a grey sweater and brown pants combo. Compare this figure to the reference photo below. Both the sweater print and the print on the legs are new. These two pieces could be desired for female figures in general or female sig figs.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for the figure iteself is low, but the hair and torso/legs combo of the Burrows fig could be sought after in multiples for custom applications.

Big Draw
The big draws here are the hair and torso/legs combo of the Burrows figure, and of course the opportunity to add Ginny to your LEGO Harry Potter collection.
