Pieces – 281

Minifigures – (3) Harry Potter, Stan Shunpike, Ernie Prang
Official Description – Harry Potter and his owl Hedwig need a lift back to Hogwarts, but as the purple, triple-decker Knight Bus screeches to a halt beside them, are they ready for the bumpiest journey in the wizarding world? Set includes Stan Shunpike, Ernie Prang and the shrunken head. Rebuilds into a London bus or regular bus. Hold on tight when you ride the Knight Bus!
Official Overall Rating – 4.5/5
This is everything that comes with the Lego Harry Potter Knight Bus set. It includes some very interesting pieces and a large amount of purple pieces. Purple Lego bricks are not easy to come by, so this is a great set to add some purple bricks to your collection. This is the 3rd version of the Night Bus that Lego has released, along with a mini version.
My Overall Review –
Pros: Large amount of rare purple bricks, 2 exclusive minifigures and the Shrunken Head, great vehicle, new version for collectors.
Cons: Comes with same Harry fig that’s seen in lots of other sets, priced a bit high at 13.6 cents per piece.
My Rating: 4 Because I love everything about the set itself, but after so many re-releases of the Knight Bus, it starts to get boring and old. I think Lego would have been better off making something else for this price-point of a set.
