Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Fantastic job by the designers, gotta say I'm amazed. I think my favorite has to be Madeye because I had the him as a kid and even then I hated it and I didn't care too much about detail (still don't and think some of them are overdetailed). The improvement is amazing! I love how he can switch into Barty Jr.  Neville and Dumbledore are sweet as well. I want to say the "big" three are from GOF but Ron has short hair. My only complaint is Luna's face is off and NO LOCKHART!!!!!!! I think we will see him in the next wave.

Scratch the "probably", the actual selection is infinitely better than the silly fake one :laugh:

Yeah alright, it's way better than anything I could have hoped for. Now I just need more rooms to display them in. Seriously considering buying either 2 Willow sets or 2 Great Hall sets.

Wow, WOW.

I'm bricking blown away by them. Outstanding job TLG. I've never even thought about getting more than one or two minifigures of each line, yet alone the whole series.

Also- I totally knew the Voldemort was real:tongue:

EDIT: My gods, I hadn't even seen the Fantastic Beasts line up! I haven't been this excited about LEGO since I was a kid. I really, really hope this theme is here to stay!

I vote for both! Hehe.

Will you be leaving both sets as is or varying one to look like a different building of Hogwarts?

The CMF Dumbledore beasts the sh!t out of the Dumbledore in the Great Hall set😂

Nah, because even though it's an inanimate object, I can still hear this Dumbledore screaming at a 14-year-old boy. Richard Harris Dumbledore ftw!

Is there a new leg piece? Lego released a closer look at some of them and it looks like there is a leg piece which is between the normal and the child but can still bend.

Most certainly. Seems we have a "teenage" lego figure size now.

Here we have a closer and more detailed look to each minifigure. I love the eye detail on Grindelwald, he even has an extra hairpiece. Also Dobby looks a little bit better from up close. Still kinda funny how we got 3 printed pieces over the years from the same sock, and they all look totally different.

Agreed. I was never a fan of Gambon's Dumbledore. But I won't deny it's a pretty great minifig.

I wonder if Luna will have the alt face with those glasses, since I think that outfit is from the train only.

Yeah, I can't deny he looks great.

My only complaint with Dumbledore is that he doesn't have a special molded Elder Wand

Wow! Best. CMF Series. Ever! I will definitely get a full box, expect this series to sell like crazy!

And there are still lots of characters left to do for series 2!

I also regret that there is no Lockhart.:cry3:

I hope we´ll get a figure of him in the next wave.

You know something is seriously screwed up when we have a Susan Bones figure before Lockhart. Master of the memory charm and actually charm. World reknown author and hair soap specialist. What has Slughorn done besides putting the Wizarding World at danger by showing Voldemort Holcruxes

Excuse me sir but I'll have to inform you that you are objectively wrong. While the CMF looks good nothing can beat that lavishing red OG Dumbledore attire.

I also wished Voldemort got a special mold for his wand, those 2 always stood out the most to me. But then again the Elder Wand only started playing a big part from movie 5/6 and onwards.

Also I ordered the old Sprout online, just in case. Since she's probably not represented anytime soon, unless the D2C surpises us with movie 1/2 Flitwick and Sprout. I can see it happen that her figure will raise in price very quickly.

The big 3 are based on Prisoner of Azkaban.

That's odd that Harry doesn't have his short hair. I don't think he has long hair in POA if I remember correctly. And if Hogwarts Express is based on that film, he has short hair there. Some weird inconsistencies.

I think Harry is rather based on GoF

They’re based on Goblet of Fire I believe, that’s why they (Harry and Ron) have long hair, they had short hair in PoA

Yeah, that’s what I think, makes sense with Cedric and Cho being included as well as them having long hair

So...in the past has anyone had success ordering a whole box? If so, where do you get them from? LEGO store told me they don't sell them by the box, and I have two friends who want to split a box with me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as I'm buying far more in this assortment than any other.

Thanks for the tip.  I'll try and figure it out so and find a unique shaped piece in each fig.  Bit of fun I suppose if you guess correct and booo if not. 

It’s easier than you might think. I’ve done it for several full series’. I’ve never gotten the wrong one. Just take your time with it and make sure you know for sure before you buy it.

Wow, these are incredible! I never expected this level of both printing and new molds, which are fantastic. I could gush about each one for hours. I have to say that I've always quite liked Gambondore (heresy!) and I adore the new hat/hair piece — I only wish they did something like that for McGonagall in the Great Hall.
