I was excited to come home from work and start building. Easy to build, great fun. Love that his wings flap. Highly recommend it to add to the collection.
This is an absolute cracker of a set. For $70, it's an enjoyable build with some excellent wing flapping fun included. It's also a great way to get the new 2020 owl if you haven't already.
LEGO 75975 Hedwig is an exceptional set, and one of the best mid-range LEGO sets of 2020. It's a must-buy if you're a LEGO Harry Potter fan, but even if you aren't, the mechanism and engineering is worth the price of admission as well.
By taking a risk and building something new, and delivering a sense of movement and play to the model way beyond expectations, 75979 Hedwig is a unique LEGO set in 2020 and one most certainly not miss out on.
I might not be the biggest Potter fan but this set is amazing. It's a great visual display piece, which is heightened by the motion elements. The way the wings move is great and works very well. They could have simply created a brick-built version of Hedwig, sitting in a perch position, similar to the version offered at a Barnes & Noble event a couple of years ago. But I really like the open winged look, even more so with the movement it offers. I'm also impressed by how ornate the plinth looks, as a simple thing like using transparent elements adds to the appearance. The use of stickers is a little disappointing, this seems to be an increasing issue with sets, where elements which could easily be printed are stickered instead. I would have loved a bigger UCS-style version, but as it is, the set is near perfect. Just the right size, a great display piece, moving elements and a joy to build.
Once built, 75979 is a very successful rendition of an owl with a mechanism well hidden under the body. And above all, the movement of the wings is smooth and accurate!
