I don't know if the press release went out in conjunction with The Great Western LEGO Show or just because the LEGO Harry Potter sets launched today, but we already have news of the first 2011 LEGO Harry Potter set - Diagon Alley. 11 minifigures, three buildings, accessories galore! This set and Hogwarts Castle are at the top of my personal Christmas wish list.
Now the pics that have been released today did not appear to be big enough for proper screen grabs of the minifigures, but we do know the Fred and George Weasly, Mr. Olivander, and two Gringott's goblins are all new figs! Once good images become available, we will update the guides.
This will be a LEGO exclusive and is slated to go on sale (according to the LEGO Shop at Home listing) on January 1st, 2011. If you would like to find out more you can see the listing for Diagon Alley on LEGO.com. Just look in LEGO Exclusives.
