LEGO Fantastic Beasts set number 75951 comes with 132 pieces and only $19.99. This set will blow you away with all the new pieces and mini figures. First I have to say that the Thestal with posable wings is extremely well done. This is what really cough my eye. The wings are made of a softer plastic like the wands and plants material. This gives it a great feel to the figure. Gellert Grindelwald and Seraphina Picquery mini figures will blow you away. The new print detail are fresh and outstanding, with their custom wands really makes them stand out. Now about the new spell shooter accessories, I was thinking they would just pop off and fall when you press them, however they are so well designed that they shoot where you want them too go (about a foot or so watch where you shoot so not to lose them as well as, don't aim at people or pets please). The carriage is very detail with a lot of functions and is much bigger in the inside then you might think. The doors are a new design and new colored (plant) pieces. The wheels and harness move freely for excellent playability and posing. But I feel the back large wheels are a bit lose that causes them to bow out just a little, but with ease of the wheel spinning its fine in my book. Positive;Great price point at just under $20.00, with 2 new mini figures and the Thestal. It is a easy build and great for all ages over 7. Love the new pieces, designs and the great spell shooters action. Lots of room to put your figures on for the ride. Negative;It was hard to find anything that was negative to say about the set. I would have liked to see one or two extra spell shooters included in this set like Lego normally does with other sets with shooters. So over all I would say it is a great buy and must get for anyone that is into Fantastic Beasts and the Magical World of Harry Potter. The set is also a great starter set to anyone thinking of getting in to building with LEGO. The set is also a great idea for giving as a gift to someone. Happy Building
I think this is an underwhelming set, and it's a bit disappointing that this is the only set at this price point for the Wizarding World theme (not counting the BrickHeadz). The build is okay, the minifigure count is a bit low and neither are huge standouts for me, playability is pretty limited, and the price is not exactly great either.
At this price point, a set this large in a licensed theme with two exclusive figures and a new moulded creature is nothing to scoff at. If it had to be done at the expense of some detail on figure printing and visual appeal on the carriage so be it – this set's mission is to be a fun play accessory in the range of Wizarding World sets and in that regard it succeeds. It is just a little disappointing when recent examples exist of the concept having been executed much better.
At $20, this set is $5 more expensive than Aragog's Lair but has ~20 less pieces, and that's more than likely due to the Thestral causing a premium on this set. This set looks good and I feel does what it needs to do, of course without knowing too much about this until the film comes out I can only assume. The Thestral looks great and for many will be the primary reason to get this set, but I think the carriage itself is a nice design and could be transitioned well into a non-Wizarding World fan's city. When compared to Aragog's lair (again just because it's the closest in pricepoint), the set feels more substantial because it does create a fairly large model.
The entire Wizarding World theme has proven to be very impressive and this set continues that trend. I absolutely love the brand new Thestral and Grindelwald's carriage looks brilliant, including lots of room for minifigures as well as a few simple functions. Furthermore, the price of £19.99 in the UK or $19.99 in the US feels quite reasonable, particularly since the Thestral includes a couple of new elements.
Overall the LEGO Wizarding World Grindelwald's Escape (75951) is actually an above average set that I do recommend picking up before the movie comes out. The minifigure selection is decent with Gellert Grindelwald as the main antagonist and Seraphina Picquery as a supporting character. The carriage with Thestral looks amazing and it looks like something you would see during that time period. The only knock I have on the set is the appearance of Grindelwald as the minifigure doesn't look like he does from the trailers.
