Everyone's favorite Harry Potter book gets LEGO-fied

Goblet of Fire is the best Harry Potter book. FACT. Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely the best film, and Chamber of Secrets is probably the best game, but when you look back at the original novels, the fourth is the most memorable. It's the franchise's turning point from innocence to darkness, from chilhood to adulthood and from popular to phenomenon.

It also has the most action, meaning that any adaptation is bound to be epic and exciting. This newest LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 trailer is certainly the funnest I've seen so far. If you don't want to at least rent this game after watching this video, you're probably not a real fan...

And here are a few screen grabs for those too lazy to hit "Play."

Spoiler alert: One of these toys will DIE. Guess which!

The cutest, cuddliest Hungarian Horntail you will ever see

Oh, LEGO Dark Mark, I can't stay mad at you. Not when I suddenly want to build you and display you on my office desk

Moody's face looks awesomely crazy, even in smooth shiny plastic

A Triwizard Challenge gone horribly, hilariously awry. With a swimsuit like that, though, he had it coming

    "Goblet of Fire is the best Harry Potter book. FACT". I couldn't agree more, mr. Barratt. FACT. For me, the HP franchise built up a great climax in the first four books, delivered immensely in the fifth one and then ended. The last couple of books never existed for me. The Deathly What?

    I've never really liked Goblet of Fire. Chamber of Secrets is my favorite by far.

    @EnragedTortoise Yup, I noticed that, too. Where's my dead Diggory LEGO?!

    One thing only a true HP fan would notice.... In the trailer, when Harry and Voldemort were dueling, and they ere shooting spells at each other, DIGGORY WAS STILL ALIVE. In the book, Diggory died wayyy before that point.

    The lego games are quite good. I don't know about batman, it was going a little far. But everything else, Especially HP is very Lego'y
