Play Along At Home...

Lego has a new gimmick for this summer's 🎊 20th anniversary 🎉 wave of sets (and yup, it has indeed been 20 years since the releases both of the first film and the first HP lego sets 😐): lego Chocolate Frog Cards. (Yes, they totally saw me coming. 😆) The anniversary sets will each include a predetermined number of randomly selected 'cards'. There will apparently be sixteen different 2x2 tiles in total and as luck would have it... they've leaked. 😃 It seems there's no official word yet on who is who, so your guess is as good as mine at this point, if you'd care to make a stab at it? (I believe I've solved it, and with the exception of one character in the spoiler below, as fellow-Potterheads I think you should know the lot.)

"Ladies and gentlemen, and I assure you, I use the terms with an imprecision otherwise ill-advised in this classroom... Below you see the sixteen chocolate frog cards. Who, pray tell, do you believe they have depicted upon them?"

Up into the ensuing silence Hermione's hand shoots, vibrating, in her barely contained excitement, at a frequency best heard by Crups, as the one howling in the distance would seem to confirm...

In 1935, Jocunda Sykes became the first witchard to cross the Atlantic by broom, a feat which made her and the Oakshaft 79 she flew with famous throughout the Wizarding world. In the PoA video game, there's a bust of Sykes in the Hogwarts Entrance Hall near the stairway leading to the Dungeons. 🐍 (Morag absolutely adores her lippy... 💄)

In light of lego's tribute to Amelia Earheart this year, her inclusion kind of makes sense, although I'm wondering if she's slated to make an appearance in the FB films...
