Anyway, I don't think "$XX worth of sets for film Y" is their mindset at all. If they think a scene will translate well to a Lego set, they'll make it. 

If this was the case then we wouldn't be getting the line with most sets from the same era every year and instead we would've gotten something closer to the 2010/2011 line.

Year1/2 wave was mostly taken up by generic non-year-specific sets that are essential for a Harry Potter theme.

They were still based on specific scenes from specific movies. The whomping willow destroying the flying car only happened in the second film, Harry and Ron only went to Aragog's lair in the second film, Hermionie only set snape on fire in the first film ect.

I think you read a completely different conversation here than I did because I haven't seen anyone believe this ''rumor''

I did read a completely different conversation because this one forum isn't the only place where rumors are discussed. If no one at all believed these rumors, far fewer people would be spreading them and making them.

Besides this new guy and the one from last week, who are both new and unreliable leakers, no one has spread any info on a Ministry of Magic set. Why? Because it doesn't exist

I stated earlier that I believe this rumor and I have been predicting a Duel in the Ministry Atrium set from the beginning. There is no need to condescend people who have different opinions than you. And there are plenty of folks on Instagram and on other forums who also believe we will be getting the Duel in the Ministry Atrium scene from the climax of OotP. We will see who is right soon enough.

That set would make perfect sense I think. I just don’t believe this specific rumor about it because no reliable leaker has mentioned it. It only surfaced as a “rumor” because some copycat on IG took the “he’s back” hint from kingnono and ran with “we’re getting a $50 Ministry set”. That specific rumor was completely made up. It just was. That guy has no inside information. That being said, I’m definitely not saying a Ministry set is impossible. Like I said, it would make a lot of sense and I would love to see it happen. I’m just not going to assume the set exists based on a guy who is so very obviously not reliable. As for this newer guy that posted it, I can’t say. Don’t know anything about them. Maybe they know something, maybe they don’t. But I won’t believe anything unless a known reliable leaker at least hints at it. Also, Lego has made it very clear with this reboot that a scene being the climax of the film doesn’t mean it will get a set.

I’d love a Ministry set but won’t believe one is coming unless a reliable leaker like @Falconfan1414 reports it. 
 

On the topic of the 2011 Diagon Alley, I still love that set and have always wanted it! I was going to try getting it this year but if there’s a new one coming I’d rather save up for that and get the 2011 one another time.

We get it, you believe this rumour. I think you’re misunderstanding what we mean by “believe” - we don’t Trust this rumour.

I swear this happens like once a week, it’s not limited to just Instagram it happens here too. People come in and take rumors and put them together and claim them as there own. Sadly people believe these people and automatically assume they are right even tho they have like 3 followers. I’m not saying rumors are false I’m just amazed how quickly people take these guys word on it like they have a 100% track record

The problem is that the rumor contradicts information we've gotten from very reliable sources. Mostly the set numbers. Of course there's still a slight chance there might be some truth in all of this, it's easy to mix up set numbers and we know that the current numbers were first for the overwatch sets but changed later so another small change in the set numbers isn't too farfetched. However, the thing is that no one reliable can back these claims up and only a few newcomers on instagram keep throwing these rumors out there on a hashtag that is known to have more trolls and reposters than actual leakers. Many here have predicted a set like this but that means nothing sadly. But with rumors like this we should always be warry to avoid disappointment.

So, what is the consensus on the reliability of kingnono?

I would say reliable until proven otherwise, as he leaked some information before we received actual confirmation in the form of leaked images (Molly and Arthur mostly). I think he might have been the first to mention them and the rumored Burrow. And other long time trusted leakers haven't shot his leaks down yet, for what it's worth. But a leaker becomes obviously only truly trustworthy when we get an official reveal for all of the things he leaked, so we still take it with a small grain of salt.

Personally I'm guessing that the sets we know are releasing are the only sets releasing (except for maybe a GWP) but it's understandable why people are desperate to believe the rumors we know are false.

I know it's kinda off topic, but with this year's advent calendar being mentioned, I was wondering what people's thoughts are on last year's? I missed out on it being super cheap from Waterstones the other week and so I was looking at getting it at £18 from someone on eBay.

But then, the more I think about it, the more I feel it's collecting for collecting's sake. I thought I would get it for the minifigs, but then realised Dumbledore and McGonnagall are the same as in a set, Hermione's just wearing something different, Harry and Ron have their Xmas jumpers which I could get off Bricklink, and Flitwick's not that different to his CMF. And the builds, while good, aren't anything amazing. The fireplace is pretty cool for Floo or something. Do any of you think it's worth getting to add to the other sets in my collection for display purposes or not really?

I feel the same about the Build Your Own Adventure book and its model - it's alright but don't know if it's worth it...

I got it & don’t regret it in the least. The exclusive prints are great, even the Gryffindor robes. The 2x3 tile letter print is awesome & the builds, while a bit lackluster, are nice additions to the Castle.

For me the new HP sets since the 2018 wave look a lot of better than the 2011 and older ones.

More and better details and with that they come more closer to the movies.

First at all i always was a little bit sad that i dont have the old DA and the Burrow set but now i am happy that i dont have it.

The new versions are mostly better(not in every case:wink:  )

But every period of time has its one flair...

Mostly the older sets are not as good as the new ones, so only a few characters and creatures are missing now that we have gotten earlier. However that number is dvindeling every year e.g. Fawks this year.. Will we get a proper basilisk and Fluffy, not so sure so glad I have the old ones. On the other hand I think that DA and the Burrow is some of the best sets made in HP Lego, that may off course change when we get new ones :shrug_oh_well:

microscale is still a possibility

I hope and think it is not micro-scale, but until I see some solid proof that it is system-scale I am not sure :tongue:

It's also really annoying how there's no thestrals on the horizon either :sceptic:

This is the same every time with animal moulds, there are always a chance we will never get them again. So when they make a new one, buy the number you want or you may end up waiting for years or forever and the price will only go up :wink:

I'm not condescending people, especially not when they have a different opinion than me. This is a forum, if I didn't like differing opinions I wouldn't be here.

Hallo there.
I would recommend having a tab for Lego harry potter on Amazon.it(es and fr) saved.
On ".fr" just this morning they have 5 of the older sets times two. I think that is a sign that some lazy dude just copied the entrys on the side to later change them to the new sets. 
I have not seen (haven´t seen anything on amazon as of yet) a ministry battle set (just because I havent seen it, it could of couse still excist).

 The otter patronus is on Instagram now.  Looks pretty great.  I wonder if that mold could be reused for a ferret later on?

Thanks for the info, although items having multiple listings isn’t unusual on Amazon. It’s also common to get two results for the same product, one as an ad/sponsored and one as the normal product result, but they lead to the same place - are you sure you didn’t just see this (see the attached image - it happens for multiple products but one says “sponsored”)? So I don’t think it means anything I’m afraid.

Also why would you have seen an unannounced new set if they’re just copies of old sets anyway?

Yes I am 90% sure. It seems at least abit odd. I think amazon france leaked the wonder woman set a few week ago. And amazon.it and .es dosent have the same HP sets times two 😀

I saw the otter and it’s amazing!
 

It’s also definitely an otter - the rounded head, blunt nose, chubby cheeks, tiny ears and robust body really set it apart from a ferret, and it’s hard to tell from the angle of the picture but I’d bet on its tail being way too long and thick for a ferret’s as well. 
 

Ultimately, molds originally made to be patronuses have to be recognizable as the right animal when made out of transparent plastic with no printing. There’s no room for ambiguity - that’s definitely an otter, it couldn’t be anything else. Just like the new mold for Luna’s patronus is a hare, and clearly designed to be discernible from the old rabbit mold. 
 

The good thing about all of that as far as potentially getting a ferret is concerned is that if lego is willing to put in the money for a hare mold when most people weren’t expecting them to, then the likelihood of getting other more specific a niche animals has to be higher (especially if they’re coming in the cmf, which has its own budget).

That otter looks awesome. I hope we'll get a printed version but we still haven't seen the stag outside of HP so I guess it'll be a while

Strange that the otter do not have a stud, but the hare does. How big is that hare, the otter weighs 2-3 times as much in real life *huh*

Yes somewhat frustrating, maybe the smaller animals will show up sooner :shrug_oh_well:
