Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

Recommended Posts

Pretty much the only HP sets I've owned are the old Durmstrang ship and the tiny one for a cheap Hagrid. I do like the sound of this announcement, especially if it means I have a shot at getting Moody, one of my favorite characters.

I love the idea of Harry Potter coming back to Lego. Hopefully it stays around for longer than scoody doo. I wouldn't mind a fantastic beast set or two but I hope the line focuses on Harry Potter instead but I'm worried it is going to be mainly fantastic beasts

This was my first thought too. It's like Lego was actively avoiding them!

Yeeaaah, if we could all take this with a grain of salt, that would be great.

To be fair, @rob-ot5000 hinted at it and when people asked, he avoided the question so I think amazing bricks saw this and just went ahead and said yes because he read into what @rob-ot5000 said so I think @rob-ot5000 deserves the credit.

And @Itaria No Shintaku

Wow I can't believe this is actually coming back.:wub:  Personally I was surprised they ever stopped making HP sets for the simple fact been there are 8 movies and so many iconic builds they could do that haven already been made.  Imagine some of the sets they can redo.:cry_happy:

I'm beyond excited to hear this, when TLG did the last HP stuff, I wasn't much of a fan of the franchise and only got The Forbidden Forest and Freeing Dobby. Since then I have grown to love it and am so happy to know that I can actually get sets and recreate the franchise with LEGO.

Also, according to CM4sci, Amazingbricks isn't entirely reliable so don't get your hopes up on a minifigure series just yet.

I thought we established awhile ago that Amazingbrick's source was lying to him... :look:

I hope there will be a LEGO Harry Potter Complete Saga video game with Years 1-7 in one game instead of two separate games. Maybe with voice acting and archive audio in it?

That's cool, I've collected a lot of the original hogwarts castle sets from 2001-2003, and I have all but one of the most recent line from 2010-2011, that being Diagon Alley. It's a good little theme, and I'm curious to see what they could do with it in an even more modern era.

False! The 2018 list is Batman Series 2 for January, Series 18 for May, and then Disney Series 2 for September. Then, for 2019, The LEGO Movie Sequel Series for January, Billion Brick Race for May, and then Series 19 for September.

Although this is true, if you look at the thread it's pretty evident from rob's comments and the other insider info that we had that the series was based on a Dimensions IP, and they discarded most of them except for HP/FB. We can be pretty sure it's that, although they never did confirm it.

Where did you get the Disney series 2 from?

What?

Disney Series 2?

As far as we know, there is no Disney series on the horizon

I have always loved the Harry Potter theme, the 2 video games are my favorite old school lego games. The 2010-2011 wave was incredible, I wish I got more sets from it but at the time I was still in my younger lego stage and only got the set with Dobby and Hagrids Hut. I hope they cover the 5th movie more, as I think that has the most needed sets miasing from it.

As far as I have heard there has been no confirmation on Disney Series 2. Where are you getting this from?

CM4Sci has some more claims, I still have hope that it's true and I've never really ran across of any of Amazingbrick's leaks or anything, but I thought I would put it up just in case because I know what some people can be like on here

That's, uh, quite the understatement. I would be significantly interested in any sort of Collectible Minifigures Series, but I'd understand if TLG prefers to focus on non-licensed figures for the time being, during a period of rapid expansion for them.

So, this is fantastic news to me. As far as individual sets go, a Weasley's House or a Malfoy Manor would both be fantastic, but I'm psyched for this either way. Outside of Star Wars, this may be one of the few System themes that I'll actually consistently collect, as the depth and variability of Harry Potter's world was a major presence in my childhood. I'm sure that my little sister will love this news as well. Thanks, SirVonLego!

I have faith in this leak. Out of all the themes it could have been it just happened to be HP. It isn't a coincidence  that now Harry Potter sets are rumoured aswell.

Awhile ago, @Itaria No Shintaku told us that a second Disney CMS was not happening for that time slot; and as far as 2019 goes, I'm pretty sure nothing is yet set in stone, let alone confirmed or rumored yet.

I think despite HP being popular it's sets wouldn't sell THAT well without supporting movies. Kind of like Lord of the Rings. 

 

I'd consider getting the minifigure series if it had some old characters. I'm not too into Fantastic Beasts.
