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: meh 4.55 / 5 from 11 reviews

This was a fun, quick build! With the last wave of Harry Potter Lego representing movies 1 and 2, this is a simple yet appropriate set for Prisoner of Azkaban. I like the stag patronus piece, and I like that Harry's shorter legs are able to move just as the full-size legs do. My only qualm is piece 4262978 (the three-pointed grey propeller piece). There is a small notch to indicate which way it connects to the other piece, which I didn't notice until after, and I ended up having to take my two trees apart because they were crooked. I would have preferred more specifications about which way to put this piece, but no biggie! This set is a nice nod to movie three, and it is small enough that it can nestle closely to the Hogwarts castle sets without taking up too much extra space! Also, I would definitely consider ordering from this website again, because it was delivered very quickly!

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: yes 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 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.
