Does anybody else think the shark head and the Neptune tail thingy is useless? I guess you could use the tail on someone, though.

Time for someone to break the mold!

I absolutely despise this Harry Potter rubbish!!!  Ok, so its not that bad.  Well maybe... But the colours are absolutely awful!

Nice pictures though.  10 points for those.

Hmm... what I like in the HP sets are those tiles with the "wood structure" and the colors of the generic bricks. I could use the tiles for little huts and stuff and the bricks for houses. But there aren't enough in a box to justify a purchase. That would be a bit... excessive...

In general I'm not too happy with the HP sets. But that's a Town/Train head speaking...

To answer Cyclonis' question: yes, I also think those two pieces are useless outside that set.

I've been digging the Graveyard Duel and Hungarian Horntail for a while now.  
I'll make a list of the cool and useful things I can see in each set:

Hungarian Horntail
- Blay mountain pieces
- 1x6 tan tiles with wood pattern
- Magnetic hand
- Burnt orange-colored bricks (rare)
- Metallic peg-leg

Graveyard Duel
- Light blay trash can
- Black hippogriff wings
- Large wagon wheels in new brown
- All-black skeleton
- Abundance of black chains
- Abundance of black 'railing'
- Bricks used in mausoleum
- Astounding piece/price ratio ($30)

Rescue From The Merpeople
- Flesh-colored arms/legs
- Red 'Dumbledore' hair
- Regular bricks in rare shades of blue (light, dark, trans)
- Rare sea creatures, including an extremely inventive use for a baker's hat - a jellyfish.

Durmstrang Ship
- Metallic gold window panes
- Dark red window frames
- Chrome gold 2x2 inverted dishes
- Black 'wooden' doors
- Black Falcon shields
- New shield design
- Accessories inside cabin

Hope that helps some of you see some value in the sets. ;)

Combine the two and you'd have the complete fish!

The fish tail may resurface if LEGO decided to pursue a mythological or similiar type of  theme.

That mermaid head will make a good alien for Star Wars fans.

I always notice head like that. Did you happen to catch the dementor?

That's being a bit harsh, no?  The Graveyard one is absolutely fantastic, and I'll probably pick up a copy of that underwater set as well.  And I hate HP   ;)

Argh! DOWN WITH THE FLINSTSTONES, er, FLESHTONES, yeah, that's what I meant ;) . I absolutely hate fleshtones, I can't stand them. In my world, the Republic uses them as stinkin' slaves *satis* . Anyway, to get back on topic: the Graveyard is pretty cool if you destroy the fleshtones :^D . That One-Eyed Freak in the Hungarian Dragon thingy set looks pretty cool (although he's a fleshtone :( ) Just my 2 cents :-D .

Maybe you could use the fleshtones as corpses in the graves? ;)

I like HP,(can't understand why you don't :( ) I think Lego should have made more HP4 sets. The first year had a ton, the second year was good too, But the third year had hardly any, and now this, a measaly four. I still can use the pieces though. :D

Well, I'll probably pick up some sets, like the Hungarian and the Graveyard. I need fleshtones, otherwise my soldiers can't purge, burn or torture them. :^^D

I'm a HP fans, especially HP III LEGO sets. I have all of them but only a few from HP I and HP II.

So, before I see the pictures of the coming HP IV, I thought I wanted to buy them all no matter how it looks like.

But now I change my mind.  The Durmstrang Ship is a bit too juniorised and The Rescue from the Mermaid Ppl is too simple. Maybe I'll only buy the Graveyard when it's released in September. (However, if i have extra $, I'll buy them all just to complete my collection.)
