Fans of LEGO Harry Potter can now expand 75978 Diagon Alley with 76417 Gringotts Wizarding Bank, an epic new set that will launch on September 1 at LEGO.com. Using 4,803 pieces, the set stands at an impressive 75cm high. That’s thanks to the iconic Gringotts Bank being built on the vault, so Harry can find himself on an out-of-control mine cart travelling through its depths.
What’s great for those who already have 75978 Diagon Alley is that the bank can be displayed with or without the vault beneath it, lining up with the previously released buildings. The model captures the structure’s wonky architecture. Inside there are desks with goblin clerks.

Of course it wouldn’t’ be complete without the Ukrainian Ironbelly Dragon, which can be placed on top of the bank to recreate Harry, Hermione and Ron’s escape.
The set also included 13 minifigures; Harry Potter, Rubeus Hagrid, Dragomir Despard, Ron Weasley, Bellatrix Lestrange, Hermione Granger, Griphook, Bogrod, Ricbert, a Death Eater, two goblin bankers and two guards.
