I think the next torso we need is the one with the black tie from PS before they've been sorted! They had them on the 2001 sets.

Sorry that this is off-topic but the head with the beard (second to the bottom), where's it from?

is it exactly Cho?  in a series of figures she has a light brown wand.  by the way.  the print of the sweater is slightly different here.  the hairstyle is more reminiscent of Padma than Cho

I thought the same. I will use the figure as Padma

Got almost what I wanted. Nice gender neutral HP minifigure pack with each house included. I thought they'd make something like this with two boys and two girls.

The choices though I'm less impressed. I'm happy to get an older Draco that's cheaper to get than the AT, shame how black his eyebrows are.

We really didn't need another Harry fig though, they could've had like anyone else: Percy, Ginny, Seamus, Parvati, Katie Bell etc.

Hannah Abbot, I like how they included a more obscure character, shame that the reused the face of Fleur from another set (overall looks a bit too similar to Luna as well for me)

And Cho. Cho? I'm really not sure if this is her or not. Even the more accurate hair from the CMF series has been changed. If it is Padma, like some speculate it's a right shame they reused the face from the cmf then.

I'm still happy we're getting this, as it'll be a nice way to get each house colours.

Also glad we finally got the Marauder’s Map again. Just hope we get a 2x2 tile that just shows the cover design in the future.

Great that we get a student armybuilder-set instead of too me the useless brickheads. I understand that Lego wants to save unique figs for future sets and that kids are less likely to buy a set with 4 obscure students, so one new student is acceptable I guess.
However is it to much to ask that they put a owl in the set :hmpf:

That’s a really nice pack actually. Is that the Marauders Map Harry’s holding?

That would be great, especially for recreating scenes on the Hogwarts Express and the boats over the lake! I was sure such a torso would be included in the Build Your Own Adventure book with the Sorting Hat from last year but they just reused the Gryffindor one.

I think it's definitely meant to be Cho as in the films Padma Patil was in Gryffindor and the Lego sets do seem to take much more inspiration for characters from the movies than the books. However, they'll have two (or potentially more when I get multiples of this set) I'll definitely use her face for the Patil twins and create other Ravenclaw figures instead.

It's a very nice pack. The figures in their entirety aren't anything to write home about but let's be real here: the only thing that trully matters is getting more Slytherin/Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw torsos. Ignoring the torso's Harry and Draco are whatever, I'll rip off their heads as soon as I get them. Cho's new face is great and while I don't really like the faceprint for Hannah as it's also used by Fleur Delacour it's at least a new character. The shelf isn't anything to write home about but the MM printed tile is beautifull. I'll definetely get at least one, maybe two

I know that she is not Ravenclaw in the movies, but in the books and the figure is in my opinion much more looking like her then Cho.

Look at her alternate face, it's definetely Cho

It was probably chosen because the Hannah Abbot looks similar to Phoebe Buffay from Friends who also uses the Ellie Sattler head

Do what I did and replace every Fleur head with the head from the Beauxbatons carriage, that way she isn’t twins with Hannah Abbot ??

Its such a shame they spend budget to make Cho chang AGAIN, invalidating her cmf figure in the process.

so much of the cmf series is getting bastardized back and forth.   

Their value is being lowered while the price is being raised..

Love me that Marauders map!   wouldn't be surprised if that shows up in advent calendar though.

It’s not just the CMF but the Bricktober pack too, Umbridge and Slughorn, I paid £25 for 2 unique figures now when it was 4 ??

The Phoebe head isn’t Ellie, it’s the Carriage Fleur head which is different to the Trial and Yule Ball Fleur (those 2 are the Ellie head)

I know it's not exactly the same as Ellie but that face with different expressions was used for Fleur's Carriage figure, which was later reused for Phoebe. Imo that still counts as an Ellie Sattler head (especially considering the alternate expression just SCREAMS Jurassic Park more than anything else)

Yeah, I know Lego really only base their sets of film versions and not books. I can see why though as it is a visual medium.

Yeah.i wouldn't be surprised if we get the same Griphook from the CMF in the Diagon Alley set. Or Kingsley in the Ministry of Magic.

Completely agree about the Marauder’s Map. Reminds me how we got a quite detailed version of  Harry's letter to Hogwarts in the Advent calender.

that pack is still unique though. and that was just a gift. slughorns face was reused but not his torso.

both Umbridge heads have 1 unique face. so she got 2 bacily 100% unique figures.

If it hasn’t been used for a character then it’s not that character’s head ?, it’s Fleur’s head because she was the first character to use the head, also, I never said it wasn’t used for Fleur, I said “The Phoebe head isn’t Ellie, it’s the carriage Fleur head” ??

On the bright side at least the Ravenclaw figure isn't another Luna :laugh:. I do get your point but considering how the CMF series was created when they probably weren't looking so far forward in terms of what sets and minifigures were going to be included I'm not surprised there's overlaps. To me it speaks to how lucky we are with such an expansive theme that there can be repeats and figures crossing over on each other like this, but that might be a bit too optimistic!

Ooh, I did not know that, I thought they were exactly the same, ok, I’m less annoyed now, still annoyed about Dobby and Cho though ?

If it hasn’t been used for a character then it doesn’t count as that character’s head, it literally makes 0 sense ?, you could use it for a custom Ellie, but until it’s used for her, it neither counts for her nor is it it her ?, I was trying not to get annoyed, hence the “??” in the original comment, but seen as you seem like you want to argue I’m gonna end this here

I don't want to argue nor am I annoyed, I'm just saying it counts as a Sattler head in my opinion. Last time I checked I could decide for myself what I thought about certain things. If you don't agree with me that's fine but my opinion is my opnion

As for Fleur, I don't consider Lego to have made any faces for her.

she reused the 2018 Sattler head in first half of 2019

then the phoebe head in the second half of 2019

The Elsa head from Disney CMF 2 works also very well for Fleur. And I think the head they used for Hannah is good. Just Fleur should have gotten a better one from the start
