LEGO Harry Potter Minifigures: Mr. Ollivander

Mr. Ollivander is exclusive to the upcoming LEGO Harry Potter set 10217, Diagon Alley.This will be the first time this minifigure wand maker has been available in the LEGO universe.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
Ollivander is composed of four parts - hair piece, head, torso, and legs.

The hair piece is a light gray variant of part x67, a color that hasn't been available previously for this part.

The light flesh head features a new print with gray sideburns, aged features, and bit of stubble around the mouth. Although the hair piece can support it, it is unknown if the head is dual-sided.

The torso and arms are reddish-brown with light flesh hands. The torso print shows a coast, vest, and cravat tie. It is unknown if the torso also features printing on the back.

Both the legs and hips are gray with no visible print.

Comparing this figure to the reference photo, we see the torso print appears to be fairly accurate, and the head print captures his older, weary appearance in a cartoony, LEGO sort of way. The hair could have had a touch of additional detail, but TLG likely went with an existing mold to keep costs on the set down.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this figure is low. Not much to stimulate multiple purchases of this minifigure.

Big Draw
The torso print could be attractive due to its unique and formal appearance. The hair may also have an attraction as this is a new color for this part. LEGO Harry Potter collectors will also want an opportunity to have a minifig version of this character to round out their collections.
