LEGO Daigon Alley Accidentally Revealed In Designer Video?


After the initially hype over the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) has died down, some eagle eyed readers have emailed me regarding a possible easter egg / teaser that was hidden in the designer video.

The rumour mill is rife as fans have spotted a micro-scaled version of Diagon Alley lurking in the background of the LEGO Hogwarts Castle Designer Video hosted by Justin Ramsden and Crystal Fontan.


Around the 4:30 mark, Justin talks about his first ever LEGO Castle set and if you look closely in the background you’ll be able to see some blurred shapes that resemble some of the iconic buildings that make up Diagon Alley like:

Gringotts Wizarding Bank (White)

Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes (Purple and Orange)

Flourish and Blotts (Green)

Ollvanders (Grey)

Ollivander's Wand Shop at Universal Studios Florida.

Quality Quidditch Supplies (Red)


This is still speculation at this point but these are the closest store matches to the colour combination that was seen in the designer video. If anyone is able to better identify the buildings, do drop me a comment!
