Lego Harry Potter in 2010?

Dear Lego Fan,

I was wondering if you had any information about a new series of Harry Potter Lego sets coming out.  With the new movie, and game it seems as though it would be likely.  Any rumors you have heard?  Thanks for your time.

Dear Renee,

Harry Potter sets would be risky for TLG to produce.  The original Hogwart’s Castle sold incredibly well.  The last year of Harry Potter sets sold poorly.  Numerous retailers discounted these sets.

A Lego Harry Potter video game is available for preorder on Amazon.com.  Fans posted unconfirmed rumors of new sets on forums.

It would make sense to have products to tie in with the movie.  However, TLG does not always have licensed sets for sale at the same time as new movies and video games.  A good example of this was the huge demand for discontinued LEGO Batman sets once the video game came out.  We will have to wait and see if TLG decides to make additional Harry Potter sets.

Sincerely,

LFan
