Review: Harry Potter Trolley  from 2011
Set Theme: Harry Potter | Set Name: Trolley | Set Number: 30110-1 | Piece Count: 22 | Number of Minifigs: 1 | Set Year: 2011
The Harry Potter Trolley is one of my favorite Harry Potter LEGO sets. Yes, it’s small, but it’s such a great representation of a very important moment in the series - the moment when Harry is racing through King’s Cross Station searching for platform 9 and ¾, and about to embark on his very first visit to Hogwart’s.
His magical, emotional, and profound journey is about to begin. This being the case, I couldn’t think of a better place to start my LEGO Harry Potter collection than the Trolley Polybag [say that five times fast], and LEGO has done a great job bringing this moment into the world of LEGO.
Along with Harry’s luggage trolley filled with his inherited riches, the set also includes Harry Potter [HP116] and a wonderful little LEGO Hedwig. The Harry Potter minifigure does come with a double-sided head. The alternate expression is one of frustration/anger. Maybe this face is meant to represent Harry’s true feelings toward Hagrid’s rudely-quick departure from King’s Cross Station [A little info on how to actually find platform 9 and ¾ would’ve been nice, Hagrid!]
The fact that this little set includes both Harry Potter and Hedwig alone makes this a worthwhile set. When you consider the significance of the moment which this set is meant to represent in the Harry Potter saga, it makes this set a must-buy for fans of Harry Potter.
