Have been trying to get gold brick from the one of the two charms rooms, but gold brick is nowhere. I tried what was said above, but nothing. My gold brick detector won't work in that room either. Is it a game or disk glitch? Or am I doing something wrong? I just need this one brick to finish the game.

I'm having the same freaking problem that I've read already posted here. When I found my 200th gold brick it flashed 200/200 on my screen and as soon as I paused the game it read 199/200. Is re-playing it the only option? Because if so forget it, keep your fountain, what else can you buy anyway. I've played and completed 100% on every lego game they've made, ever. They started out fun for little kids and parents, but they've become frustrating and children can't figure them out. This one glitch makes the entire game suck. I hope a better job is done when they hop on the new star wars films.

I just finished Lego City and I was stuck at 999,980 for the longest time. I went over to the little house (hut) in back by the R/R tracks and there is a red Lever I had to jump on that finished me off. But I am still stuck at 199 bricks and 59 Students in Peril and cant find the bugger.

I just got the 200 gold brick but the game did not register it. When I went to the room with the projector to build, it said 199/200. What do you do then?

First off did you do the bonus level in borgin and burks? Doing this level will give you a gold brick also make sure that you buy all the gold bricks in borgin and burks as this will also help you to get the 200 gold bricks.

we have just completed lego harry potter years 5-7 on the Wii but it shows only 199/200 for the gold bricks. We have used your list to double check that we have collected all 200 and we have but its still showing 199, my daughter is very dissappointed what do we do???

I had 199 gold bricks, found the last one so it ticked over to 200 but now when I look at my inventory it's back to saying I only have 199. I checked back at where I found the last brick in case it just didn't save somehow but it's not there anymore. What am I supposed to do now?

If your stuck at 99.9% check the characters again and make sure you have bought them all, i had one ghost left that i hadnt bought yet. That gave me 100%.

I finished the game once and then went back again to do free play with my dark wizard and all the other characters that I needed to get the stuff I missed the first time and then I went back to hogwarts to get everything else I missed there and I found everything. I got all 200 gold bricks, went to the cinema room and built the sculpture but I didn't get any fireworks or unlimited tokens. Is there something i'm missing? Also you're supposed to unlock bonus content when you collect 200 gold bricks but I can't find it. It can't be the lego city because that opens up after you finish the game once and that gives you your last gold brick so what am I doing wrong? Please help!

Hi, It seems I have completed the whole game, i have all the Students in Peril, I have all the gold bricks and red bricks and all the character tokens. My game still says 99.9% Would you have ANY idea on anything that I did not do? I did the Lego City. I am just so clueless on what I did not do. Could this .01% be the achievements that maybe I did not complete? Thanks!

I have 200 gold bricks and that is supposed to unlock bonus content. Where is the bonus content?

Also upstairs in the Leaky Cauldron, where the movie projector is, there is year 8 intro and outtro, is year 8 the bonus content? If so, how do I access it?

The gold brick in my charms left room doesn't seem to exist. Do I have to shoot something for it? Or is it just there. I don't see anything but the ghost says I don't have it.

With lego city the pool is a red herring you get no studs no matter what you do, try driving the lego van into the buildings that worked for me.

I had 2 gold bricks to get to complete the whole game. I found out both of them were in the campsite. I got the one behind the items where you had to use a dark wizard to destroy the plant like objects. Then when I went to the cliff and used the cannon thing to fire at the balloons, the brick appeared, I picked it up, the save icon came onscreen but it didn't give me it. Cannot tell you how angry I am, and noway am I replaying it all over again. 99.9% I have and lost out on the biggest achievement in the sucks big time

On Harry Potter yrs 5-7 lego city at top of board where the trees are blow up trees but walk around the area popping up all the red mushrooms.DONT SHOOT THEM.After you do everything else on the board go back to the mushrooms and start shooting them 1 at a time.When you get down to a few a RIDE ON MUSHROOM will appear.Get on and a whole row of BLUE 1000 point studs will appear and be enough to get you to a million.

To get your coin multipliers to take effect, you must go to the menu and choose Extras. In the extras menu, you can turn on and off all of the different red box. When you choose Resume, the coin multipliers will now work. Oh.. and you can turn all the multipliers on at the same time to earn more points faster Smile

In lego city, you don't need to do anything at the pool or with Harry and Ron. You can perfectly get to one million studs by doing everything else. I think the pool and such were just there for fun.

Great list, but I'm stuck on the Lego City gold brick. I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do near the swimming pool with the bronze, silver and gold pieces (next to Moaning Myrtle). Is there a specific order they have to go in? I've tried every combination I can think of, and nothing happens. Am I supposed to do something with the two blokes standing nearby the pool, too? Help, if you please!
