Investment Potential

The LEGO Harry Potter theme is one of those themes that has always been excellent but similar to the films, the LEGO Sets have got better and better. More complexity and more imagination and dare I say it even more exciting to build. While there are some sets that certainly have been diluted due to repetition in the LEGO Harry Potter theme the vast majority of sets have great investment potential because of the franchises continued popularity and similar to Star Wars new fans are found every year and this gives these sets seriously good legs from an investment potential.
