Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Jay

All in all, this is a very tight set that excels from every single angle. Great minifigures, exciting new elements, brick-built elements that accentuate the context of the set – all wrapped up in a pretty affordable package.

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5 by Richard

This set represents an important moment in the Prisoner of Azkaban, and indeed the series of books/films as Harry discovers he can cast a strong protection spell. If you are a fan of the series, this set is a must – buy. And if you are not, it is still worth a look, even if just for the tree design. This set has so much that is good.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5

With so many new-for-2019 minifigures in this lineup, Harry Potter and LEGO fans will surely want to collect, build, and play with all of these sets. Fans will also really like the detail on each set that helps bring to life the moments from the movies. These look great on display but they also have a lot of playability for kids who want to imagine their own magical stories.

Recommendation: meh 4.43 / 5 from 7 reviews

This set is amazing! It comes with four minifigures and an awesome looking stag! The build is awesome and detailed, and it was a very enjoyable time building this. The stag looks gorgeous with its sparkly-blue colour. It captures the look of the Patronus in the movie so well! But, I don't like the one by two brick plopped ontop of the stag. It looks awkward. Getting two dementors in one set is great, since the figure is very detailed and creepy. The Harry figure is nice, and the Sirius Black is as well, with some leg printing! But, there is a printing error on the figure because the skin printed on his torso looks pale, which it shouldn't be. This is probably due to printing a light color on a dark grey torso will not come out too well. The set captures one of my favorite scenes in movie history very well, with two detailed trees and a little section for Sirius to lay down on. The trees, while really detailed, doesn't look very nice when you face the back of it. If I were to give this set a rating out of ten, I'd give it an 8/10. A great set, but there are some flaws.

Recommendation: meh by Andrew

As fun as the two trees and their play feature may be, this set is effectively a glorified minifig pack with a unique animal. The Patronus stag has many potential applications in fantasy settings, but it's the potential appearance of the animal in realistic colors that has been making LEGO fans excited ever since the set was first revealed.

Recommendation: yes by CapnRex101

75945 Expecto Patronum is an essential purchase for any Harry Potter fan. The minifigure selection is great and Harry's famed stag Patronus looks absolutely magnificent. Moreover, the surrounding trees are very interesting, incorporating some unusual building techniques which result in a distinctive and remarkably effective design.

Recommendation: no by Rob

Sirius Black is a must-have for those collecting every character and the Dementors and Patronus are also great renditions, but, for the price, there's still not a lot of value to be had. Under scrutiny, it's only Sirius and the Patronus that are truly exclusive to this set, which compares poorly with every other LEGO Harry Potter set, and is verging on LEGO Star Wars' territory of check-out-this-new-minifigure-and-nothing-much-else-for-all-your-money.
