So far my little introduction. As said, this set is located in the first movie. Hermoine ran off to the toilets and stumbled upon a troll. Ron and Harry got to her and together they defeated the beast. This little set doesn't include Ron or Hermoine, but the troll and, another, Harry Potter figure. It counts 71 parts and costed about 10 euro. I bought it for 8 euro, but it was in new condition.
As said, the set only contains two minifigures. That's a little pathetic, if you know the movie scene had four characters. Again a Harry Potter, man, I have way to many of them. However, we do get a troll figure. And that one is just awesome! It's the only set this troll comes in.
The troll is just great. He has a sand blue color and a "bloody" head which is useful for zombies and such. A shame the other arm doesn't move and nothing fits in it. You may notice this isn't the right club which is normally brick built. When I got this set I immediatly changed it with the newer Castle one.
I guess the building is ok. It isn't that impressive or special. It includes a sink, a door, some walls and an arch on top of it.
The door can open for extra playability! =P
Here is the rather nice sink. I like it. It even "breaks" like the sinks in the movie.
Oh, and there is a strange thing just beneath the arch. A little crate with brown bricks in it. You can let them fall. WOW!
Another highlight in this set is the orange pumpkin head. It only appears in two sets: this one and the Scary Laboratory (1382).
That was it. The 4712 Troll on the loose set isn't that bad. It's fine. The special pieces (sink, troll, pumpkin head) compensate the not that impressive building. Offcourse this set is usefull for its parts, just like any other Harry Potter set. It's a nice addition to your Harry Potter collection, if you collect them. If you see it for a low price, and it includes the troll, don't let it get away!
I hope you enjoyed this Harry Potter review.
