With the recent leaked images and shortly following Official Announcement, we've been given another look at some of the features of the upcoming 2nd Wave Harry Potter sets that make this series unique from all others. With it being the 20th Anniversary of the LEGO Harry Potter Theme, initially launching in 2001 to much acclaim, LEGO has decided to revisit similar tropes of the initial launch, which we can see quite obviously in the return from Dark Bluish Gray roof plates to the original Sand Green variant. Also, a few of the sets are direct odes to original sets that launched back in 2001, particularly with the inclusion of a revised Hogwarts™: First Flying Lesson 76395.
Along with revisiting the original stylings of the Theme, there's the new addition of Gold Collectible 20th Anniversary Minifigures—so far we know of a Golden Harry, Ron, Hermione, Voldemort, Snape, and Professor Quirrell.
It's unclear whether the 3rd Wave of sets which may be coming out later in 2021 will include any additional Golden Collectible Minifigures, but I suspect we'll see at least one polybag thrown into the mix, like what transpired with the Obi-Wan Kenobi 20th Anniversary Polybag that released in 2019 along with the line of 20th Anniversary Sets.
Another interesting addition to the upcoming 20th Anniversary sets is the inclusion of what appear to be 1 x 2 printed tiles that are representative of the Collectible Wizards Cards that appear in the films. As far as the total count of tiles included in the upcoming 20th Anniversary wave, it appears there will be 16 in total that will be included in the sets.
It's not clear as to whether or not these will be 16 individual famous Wizards and Witches, or if like we've seen in the film, there will be the potential to collect all Wizards Cards and you'll get a random variation included in each set—almost like buying blind bags for the Collectible Minifigure Series. There's no information on these Collectible Printed Tiles, but it certainly makes you wonder whether or not there will be 16 different famous Wizards to collect—which Witches and Wizards will be included?
