First off I saw this set and I kinda chuckled, I saw the piece count and the price and I thought that it was a ripoff.... I was wrong. This is a great set, it has such a good size to it that the piece count wasn't even a issue with this one. I like both of the minifigures and the build was quite enjoyable! The carriage has a very nice design and I love the new Thestral pieces as well. This is defiantly a magical set!

Recommendation: no 3.1 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

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.
