An AFOL. I love talking about, creating and playing with LEGO bricks.
Today we will be taking a closer look at the Harry Potter and Hedwig Owl Delivery set number 30420. This set came out in 2020, has 31 pieces, and was designed for people 6 and up.
This set was a free giveaway with purchases at the LEGO stores and LEGO.com. It would later be widely available to buy at other retailers. The set is inspired by the Philosopher's Stone scene, where Hedwig delivers Harry a Nimbus 2000 broom during meal time. Instead of building the Great Hall, we get a fully set table.
The Harry Potter character in this set is nothing special. This short leg minifigure in school uniform is the same one we have seen in three previous sets. Most people probably have this figure from either the Harry's Journey to Hogwarts polybag set 30407 or the larger Hogwarts Great Hall set 75954. Both of these sets were released early into the Wizarding World Theme launch.
The table build is a basic design that consists of a long bench on each side attached to a rectangular table. It reminds me of many LEGO park bench table builds. Much like the film, the table is filled with food for a feast. There are two gold goblets, two pastries and a turkey leg. The plates were made using 2X2 Round tile pieces with an open stud in the center.
The new Hedwig creature piece is the draw for this set. While the white owl with spread wings is already available in 6 sets, this is by far the cheapest one available. The others are in much more expensive. To have Hedwig hold onto the broom, a 1L bar with mechanical claw piece is used for his talons.
This was a fun FREE promotional set for LEGO Harry Potter fans. That being said; with the exception of the new owl creature piece, there is no reason to purchase this polybag. The set doesn’t offer any other unique pieces or interesting build techniques.
