Brilliant news I have to say! It's nice we've got Diagon Alley, but its good the Potter line isn't ending here!

Once again, you can colour me hyped!

I'm sure Battle for Hogwarts will be a nice way to get most, if not all the core characters.  I just hope that doesn't subtract from the building part of the lego set  :look:

I'm interested in the Knight Bus, but I'm afraid it will be a lower piece count and higher price than the old one :cry_sad:

Imagine if the Battle of Hogwarts set turns out to be the Death Star of the Harry Potter theme... it will be a monster!!! I can already check off the number of figs that will make this set significant: all the Weasleys minus Charlie; The 4 head of houses plus Headmaster Snape; The entire Order; Most of the main Death Eaters (Carrows, Dolohov, Bellatrix, Malfoy Family, Rowle, Yaxley, etc.); so many students! Lavender Brown, Dean Thomas, Patil Twins, NEW NEVILLE!! And all the creatures: GIANTS! Acromantulas! Nagini!

TLG will need to include almost 30 figs in order to make this set anything like a "battle".  I'm imagining something very, very costly; like in the $399.99 range...

I don't want to burst your bubble, but that sounds very unlikely to me as the set is mentioned in a retailer catalog and a Death Star-like set (or anything bigger than the current Hogwarts castle) would certainly be a s@h exclusive. And the box sizes are noted below the "pictures" and according to those, the set will be about as big as Hagrigd's Hut. It still might be possible that we're getting something bigger, but I wouldn't get my hopes up at this point  :wink:

I agree, there's no way TLG are going to include all the minifigs that people are anticipating in "Battle for Hogwarts".  I'm guessing it will be similar to the SW sets "Battle of Naboo" (10 figs, mostly battle droids) or "Battle of Geonosis" (4 figs?).  It won't be the entire battle, just one scene from it.  A couple of Death Eaters, a couple of heroes.  And another Harry, because we really need more of those.

I can see the Figures panning out like this
Forbidden Forest: Harry. Ron Hermione Hagrid and Grawp(Possibly)

Knight Bus: Same as last Version except Ernie Prang will be in Harry. Stan Shunpike and Ernie Prang

Battle Of Hogwarts: Will have a lot of figures but maybe only about 7 or 8. Harry. Voldemort. Bellatrix. Hermione. Ron. Ginny. Neville and maybe Nagini if Nagini would count as a figure :wink:

I'm really excited that we are getting more Harry Potter sets.  :classic:

I'm guessing these price ranges for the sets-

Forbidden Forrest- $10-20
Knight Bus- $30-50
Battle for Hogwarts- $80+

I'm most excited for the Battle for Hogwarts. I can see it featuring another part of the castle, possibly the courtyard, and of course a ton of figures- I would need at least 15 to be a respectable "battle." I'm guessing any or all of these for figures

-Harry
-Voldie
-Neville
-Bellatrix
-Luna (hopefully in school uniform...)
-Lupin
-Tonks
-Snape
-Draco
-McGonagall
-Trelawney
-Slughorn
-Bill Weasley
-Fleur
-Assorted Death Eaters- (Yaxley, Carrows, etc.)

Even though we will undoubtedly get Harry, I'm hoping they will leave out Ron and Hermione in the Hogwarts set so there is room for other figures.

I'm really excited!
-Derek

The first Knight Bus makes up my entire purple Lego collection, so if another one includes more, count me in!

I wonder what the Battle of Hogwarts will look like. We already got a full-size Hogwarts castle (four times). Some people are saying a very large set, but I'm thinking smaller, like a large version of the little cut-away corridor scenes that the first HP line had.

If you look at the age ranges, it seems like these won't be too big of sets.
The age range for this year's Hogwarts Castle is 8-14 according to S@H,  and Diagon Alley says 14+, so if the Battle of Hogwarts says its 7+ it can't be like a 'Death Star' set with a boatload of figs.
Sorry to poop [hehe] on anyone's parade.

I'm not sure if it's very probable, but I'm certainly hoping so! As there's also the Knight Bus, which IIRC doesn't appear in the last book (and thus, movies), the Forbidden Forest set could also be based on any of the books. And I think it's somewhat unlikely, actually, that they would base the set on the Deathly Hallows - the Forbidden Forest scene of the Deathly Hallows is after all a bit dark scene and would only include Harry, Voldemort, death eaters and trees. Some scene from the earlier  books seems likelier. And centaurs would certainly be cool.

Centaurs are definitely cool; but I also hope to see unicorns, as it was quite a prominent feature of Harry's first journey into the Forbidden Forest.

Forbiden forest :

.Harry
.My lord You Know Who
.Narcissa
.James Potter gost
.Lily Potter gost

For the Hogwart Battle :

.Harry
.You-Know-Who
.Bellatrix
.Ginny
.Molly
.Death Eater
.Ron
.Hermione
.Death Eater
.Luna
.Neville

And, in this set, I think there will a destroid tour...
