That's really nice!! Especially Quirrel, Lockheart, and Spout they put them from video games to real-life minifigs.

So the redesigned version of Quirrel and Lockheart in flesh tone are just appeared in the video games.

Very nice. I like the new set just as much as  like the last couple.

One thing I might suggest is that the sleeves on Dumbledore could be built up more so they covered the arm and draped.

Keep on customising, they have been brilliant so far.

Good job! I like the way you made 'dad Dursley' fat and cut off their necks.
The other minifigs turned out very well too, but I like the Dursleys the most, it would be great if Lego also made a 'fat torso'.
Keep it up :thumbup:

I like all of them except Moaning Myrtle seems odd to me. :sceptic: I've never heard of Proffesor Binns before. Can you try Dudley with a neck? Vernon matches the look because of his belly, but Dudley has none.

Brilliant again.
The newest set of figures is fabulous.
The Star Wars Hoth Trooper face is perfect for Quirell.

I can't wait to see some more great Harry Potter minifigures.

Thanks, though the new part is unlikely to come soon, still stay tuned! )  :classic:

Great Minifigs, even if they are only slightly changed. Proffesor Sprout's torso looks too clean IMO... :sceptic: I'd like to see an Umbridge, Lego's head looked weird.

Thanks. Really? I consider LEGO Umbridge to be pretty well done. )

Actually, I've seen figs on Brickshelf by him of the Hogwarts Ghosts, Rita Skeeter, Cornelius Fudge, Flitwhick and Uncle Vernon on the second or third page under "harry potter".

By him?

Wow Penguin, I didn't know that you did Harry Potter figures! They're great!

I love your Slughorn, the face does look like Jim Broadbent (or whoever played him).

I never new the one at the end of the Philosopher Stone was Madame Prince, (for reasons unbeknownst to me right now) I always thought she was Professor Aurora (or whoever the Astronomy teacher was. I was always sad that she and her classroom went undiscribed).

Your Poppy is brilliant, looks like the perfect Lego nurse!

Your Flitwick is good, but why did you make me look so old!  :sadnew:  :tongue:  You should also make a third-movie Flickwick!

Your Vernon is perfect, especially his podginess!

Rita is great, both her and her outfit are beyond stunning!

All of your ghosts are perfect, I love the blood on the Baron's clothes!

Your Fudge is good, somewhat like mine I made (but didn't post)

Your Fred and George look good, but (no offence meant) nothing jumps of as spectacular.

Your sport is good, with the body looking better on her than it did on aunt may (no perverted undertones meant!  :grin: )

Your pink skin-afied teachers all look good!

Thanks a lot! )  :thumbup:  it's always a pleasure to get feedback from HP fans! )
Any suggestions for future figs? :classic:

Yep, I agree about Myrtle. I'll need to change her a bit, perhaps. )
Dudley has no big belly by the end of the book, does he?

No, I'm pretty sure he doesn't. For MM you could probably use the newer Hermione hair peice with the hair over one shoulder and create the other side. Hope that helps. :classic:

A third movie-onwards Flitwick, Professor Grubby-Plank (the substitute Care of Magical Creatures teacher), Rufus Scrimore, Fleur Delocour, Bill Weasley, Charlie Weasley and Percy Weasley are all good candidates for being made.

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.

ME! ME! please teacher, call on me, I know the answer! *waves hand high up in the air to get attention* I always thought that the CoS Tom Marvolo Riddle looked silly with HP's hair. Maybe fleshietize him, along with Ginny Weasley and a non-drunk/sleepy/dumb-looking Ron?

Agreed. Also, maybe Cedric and Amos Diggory, Dean Thomas? Lee Jordan? Maybe Riddle-Hermione and Riddle-Harry? Something like those.  :classic:

Great to see some more Harry Potter customs. These ones are really nice. I think the Karkoroff is the best. Ernie is very nice and Maxine is very well proportioned and I like the face. Well Done.

Sorry for the late reply... I like theese alot, unfortunatly none of them were made by TLG(maybe it's for the best...) I wish I had gotten some sets from TGoF if I had I'd have a reason to actually want theese figs...0_o still I think next you should do some Beauxbatons(or whatever their name is, I don't pay that much attention, an it was the first I read, after all...) students like Fleur and her sister Gabrielle, I believe, also maybe make all the champions in their 3rd task outfits and maybe fist task uniforms too, since the second is just putting some baithing suits on them, and flesh legs aren't very common, of course those only appeared in one scene so they might be hard to re-create...
Currently thinking up a fun signature... Oh well.

Long time no HP characters from me, ladies and gentlemen! )  :classic:

With all the interest in HP line now, I got so excited by the new sets and figs (and the game) that decided to test my skills! The result can be seen below:  :wink:

Rolanda Hooch. )
(As you can see I just added an old cape for her that looks so much better!)

Lucius Malfoy.)
(Another slight but vital modification - his staff with a silver snake. Originally it was smaller, but didn't work well at all.)

Narcissa Malfoy. )  :wub:
(A woman to die for! Just look at her! For me she's somewhere on the same level as Rita Skeeter.  :laugh:  )

Posted Image

Nymphadora Tonks. )
(Ok-ok, just Tonks!  :hmpf_bad: )


Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

And now my favourite....  
Professor Quirrel! ):wub:
(I have finally made his proper fig. Not that LEGO one wa bad, but he had wrong colors, and general shaoe still. Edit: it seems on the photo the turban looks a bit brighter than it should be.....)

*oh2*  Wow! What amazing figs! Bravo, Penguin! :thumbup:

Madam Hooch's cloak is a simple yet effective alteration. I plan to do this with mine also.
Lucius' staff is excellently-made.
Narcissa looks very good, although not quite as snobby as she looks.
Your Moody is much better than TLG's. Great use of the rest of the staff. He also looks a lot more scruffy now.
Tonks is perfect. Great hair and torso painting.
Quirrel looks so much better in a brown suit and his turban is excellent.

Brilliant! :sweet:
