Review of 4840 The Burrow

The front of the box
It's a beautiful looking box, there's no complaints here, so here's the back of the box...

Here's the figs
The double sided face of Harry Potter, it's nice to see that we have more expressions for Harry rather than that smirk he had before...
Here's the heroes, this figs look amazingly interesting in my opinion, I love how far the figs came from the first HP sets to this release.
Here's the bad guys... they look wicked sweet,
I also love the details of the first floor...
Will edit photos of each floor asap
A. Harry Potter Design 4 out of 5, it's good to see more expressions, but something about the hair seems like we've seen it before
B. Ginny Weasley Design 5 out of 5, the hair piece and the expressions on both sides are cool, I love that she looks almost like the actress and character from the film
C. Molly Weasley Design 4 out of 5, not a bad design, but she sort of looks like a red haired grandmother than a mother of 6, but than again that's fine
D. Arthur Weasly Design 5 out of 5, I think he looks good for someone whose house was burning in the box art, although it would be cool to have him as a dual head to
E. Bellatrix Lestrange Design 4.5 out of 5, not a bad looking girl, although why the second face is scared, I do not know, it seems strange that she would be scared rather than creepy looking
F. Fennir Design Design 4 out of 5, I forgot who this guy was, but he looks cool enough to get this rating from me and he's got a cool looking dual head which is wicked sweet
The Overall Design 4.5 out of 5, my opinion is I'd recommend it to the devote Lego Harry Potter fans, but wouldn't recommend it if you just want the parts, just for parts sack. I'm hoping to collect all new Harry Potter sets later this year. So anyway....
I love the details of the dishes as well as the clock and the beds. I'm thinking of doing a review of the Hogwarts Express later this month. Post any comments or questions or suggestions for improving my future reviews

As this is not really a review of the set I am not so sure you should have made a whole thread. If you wanted to post your opinion about the set you could do so in the absolutely superb review that Cloney has done for us all. Or also in the devoted Harry Potter thread.
As for comments for making better reviews in the future. I would say the first step would be putting a white background behind your photographs. The carpet is really really distracting and doesn't show off these great figs at all.

I don't think he was telling you not to make reviews anymore. This wasn't a review of the Burrow anyhow, this was a review of the figs in the Burrow. It was a nice review of the figs, but it would've been a good idea to do the whole set. Might I recommend checking other reviews on here. They have so much more info than just the figs. You need item #, piece count, prices, info on the number of bags and pictures of the bags/pieces. Like I said, check other reviews to see what you missed.
