Tensions Run High at the Ministry of Magic in this Potter Based Lego Build

Christmas has come early for that special hybrid of fans that are equally obsessed with both Lego and Harry Potter.

Expert builder Vaionaut recently completed his lego creations of scenes from the fifth Potter installment, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

We’ve included one of our favorite scenes here, which takes place at the Ministry of Magic in Chapter 8, but recommend checking out the whole fantastic series here.

I recently got a package with some parts in my favourite color — metallic silver 🙂
Didn’t order them for a special purpose, but I just like that color so much and they were relatively cheap.
Anyway now I tried to make a floor design out of these and I’m quite happy with it. The parts are such under pressure in the frame so that you can even lift it up without the floor falling down.
 
You might wonder why Dombledore’s hair is so short. The reasoson for this is that there isn’t any white hair piece with long hair that would fit for the great wizard. And the color white was very important for me — you’ll see later why.
