“Follow the Spiders.”
Just last week, LEGO announced that the release date for the Harry Potter system and BrickHeadz sets will be pushed to July 1, 2018 from the previous August release. In addition, LEGO also officially unveiled two new sets, LEGO 75952 Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and LEGO 75950 Aragog’s Lair, which retails for $14.99.
Aragog is the massive spider that resides in the Forbidden Forest. In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry and poor Ron follows the spiders deep into the forest in search of Aragog to discover the mystery perpetrator who has been opening the Chamber of Secrets and the truth behind the chamber. Unsettling not just for those scared of spiders!
Fortunately, LEGO 75950 Aragog’s Lair only features a few spiders instead of the more film-accurate millions. In addition to Aragog, the set comes with five extra spiders of a different color variety. You can match the spiders with the scenery, dangling from a branch or crawling about on its web. The tree even features a shooting mechanism. Aragog has some simple articulation and a head that is comepletely brick built. Minifigures include Harry and Ron wearing their casual clothes and terrified expressions. Accessories include the obligatory wands as well as a lamp and a torch.
