Lego is always a good purchase, and this is no exception, with both Harry Potter and Dobby figurines being quite unique and a good addition for any Lego collector, with Dobby figurines only being seen in older Lego sets that are quite rare to get today.
The set is quite expensive for what it is, it can be bought if shopping around at £8, but at places like The Entertainer I saw a £18 price tag, which is ridiculous, I recommend shopping online to purchase this, as that is where the best deals will be, on sites such as eBay and Amazon
The architecture of the arch is reminiscent of other older Lego Harry Potter sets, and the Dobby mini-figure is unique in design along with the Lucius mini-figure, and is great for collectors like me who wish to get nostalgic when buying Lego products.
This Lego set may not have many pieces, but would be great to use and give to a young child, as they would appreciate the wacky design of the mini-figures and the small amount of building required.
To conclude, I believe this is an excellent Lego product, only let down by the fact that it can be so expensive, which really ruins it, so ensure you shop around and get a great bargain deal on this otherwise excellent Lego product.
Last year my son really got into Harry Potter and all he's wanted for his birthday and Christmas was Harry Potter preferably of the Lego sort!
As we all know Lego is stupidly expensive and the Harry Potter variations are not different personally I can't believe the price, this set costs around £10 depending where you go I have seen it for around £7 online. So needless to say I turned to the faithful old eBay and managed to get a set for £5.
The Lego set number is 4736, and is called 'Freeing Dobby'.
This set was released in October 2010 to coincide with the release of 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets'. It contains 73 pieces including 'Harry Potter', 'Lucius Malfoy' and (a very cute) 'Dobby' figures. When made up it is only around 4x4 inches so not big at all!!!
*Special features include Includes 3 minifigures: Harry Potter, Lucius Malfoy and Dobby
Blast Lucius Malfoy with magic using the push function!
Present Dobby with a LEGO sock and set him free!
Special set elements include spiders, flames and Tom Riddle's Diary
According to the box.........
With the help of Harry PotterTM, free DobbyTM from his master Lucius MalfoyTM!
Trick Lucius Malfoy into freeing Dobby, the house elf! Then use Dobby to protect Harry Potter and send Lucius flying down the hall with a magic blast as he tries to get revenge in this Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets scene.
As with all Lego sets the instruction sheet is included and has an easy step by step building guide which is produced in bright realistic colours and my four year old (with the help of a 25 year old child) was easily able to make it up. There are, as usual, a small amount of spare Lego pieces.
My four year old loved playing with it and loved the fact that the chair and walls on the set were able to be moved and liked hiding the special pieces, but alas after a couple of days he did start to get bored im assuming it was because it was quite a small set and there wasn't a lot to do with it but as we have bought other sets for said birthday and Christmas we added it on to these and it suddenly stared to get played with again. Although i must admit he was very 'into' imaginitive play and really concentrated on the making and imagination side of it.
In my opinion I would not have paid full price for this as even though it is a good collection the size and 'playability' just do not justify the price at all!! It is a small set and works better as part of a larger group of sets, Overall though as I didn't pay full price I will award 5 stars as it is a nice little stocking filler or gift.
