Theme Analysis

A solid reliable theme which has delivered double digit annualised growth over a long period and one we are happy to recommend investments from. No concrete evidence as yet but it does seem as though their may be a resurgence towards Harry Potter again compared to recent years too.

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (4757) is a strong example of the theme, had an RRP of £79.99 when it retired in 2005 and is now worth close to £400, nearly 5 times as much with annualised growth of 10%.

Set Number Set Name Retired Date RRP Current Value Total Growth Annualised Growth

4757 Hogwarts Castle December 2005 £80 £396 395% 10%

Comparable Set Analysis

The sub theme is a bit thin on the ground to form strong opinions on, with there only being 2 retired sets and one of those only retired last December.

The older set is LEGO Harry Potter The Burrow (4840) which retired in 2011 with an RRP of £61.99 and is now worth £166, representing annualised growth of 9% over the 11+ years it has been retired.

We’d be happy enough if this set was a clear guide to the performance of the Harry Potter Astronomy Tower.

Set Number Set Name Retired Date RRP Current Value Total Growth Annualised Growth
4840 The Burrow December 2011 £62 £166 168% 9%
75980 Attack on the Burrow December 2022 £90 £98 9% 16%


The 16% discount available at Amazon currently on LEGO Harry Potter Astronomy Tower is just enough to tip us over the line into recommending this as an investment.

A solid if unspectacular theme but little evidence to go on from the sub theme left us on the fence at RRP so either buy at Amazon now or keep an eye out for future pre-retirement discounts.
