At least it’s some sort of explanation, unlike a certain someone :P

Yeah acknowledging it is nice after all the radio silence and shady crap from he-who-must-not-be-named

It‘s sad that this could refer to two entirely different people, one of them quite literally :head_back: They shall forever be known as The duumvirate of phoney LEGO Harry Potter leakers 2020

I agree with you and @sammy_zammy, it‘s actually pretty refreshing to see them apologise. It still sounds a bit suspicious to me, but at least it‘s something. That‘s definitely more than you can say for the likes of the DPLHPL20 (I need to work on that acronym)

To be fair, we don't know for sure about one of the leakers until we see Diagon Alley and the CMF revealed.  Plus, they said they'll be back next year.  Sure, they're probably a fraud, but at least they aren't a definitely-fraudulent, reincarnating troll like the other one.  And yes, you do need to work on that acronym.  :tongue:

I've gotten to the point where I'm just going to enjoy my Privet Drive, Astronomy Tower, and Burrow for now, maybe waste money on a couple Bricklink orders, and patiently wait to see what LEGO has up their sleeve next.

Sounds like a threat to me :grin:

Btw, I was wondering what legofan_33 was referring to when they stated that they thought that 71028 was to be revealed last week since there are allegedly other reveals this week. Any idea what these could be, if true? The only sets this year that have yet to be revealed (that we know of at least) are the DA D2C, the Wall Art sets, the Star Wars D2C and the Eternals sets (in case they haven‘t been postponed).

Or maybe they‘re referring to SDCC reveals which usually start around this time. Then again, we have no idea how TLG will handle the online version of the event and if they even unveil something this year in the first place :sceptic:

I was wondering about that statement too. I think the rest of the reveals for the year will probably come in the next few weeks (except for the fall Star Wars UCS perhaps). The month of July will probably be full of juicy reveals. I hope so anyway

Don’t forget the City, Friends, and Harry Potter advent calendars. We’ve only really seen box art from catalogs for those so far, not the full images that will drop when the get put up on the website. The Star Wars one is already done, so I expect the other three will drop any day now.

71028 is the CMF that haven't been fully revealed yet.

You're right! And of course there's also the Sesame Street Ideas set, which should also be revealed VERY soon if the rumours about an August release actually hold water. So there's quite a few sets that hint could refer to

I know :wink: What I meant was that legofan_33 hints at something else being revealed this week

Well, that's why I said IF that bit of information is true (and I did call that apology fishy, which it still is) :wink: I'm not 100% believing that story, but at the very least legofan_33 has more integrity than a certain someone had

Tom Riddle has no alternate face. (Confirmed by Ashnflash review)

Honestly, that fact alone makes a future Chamber of Secrets set seem a lot more plausible, since that could have a more standard dual-sided head.

Alternatively, I'm just telling myself that to cope with the fact that we only have one face print for my favorite canon interpretation of Voldy.

The second thing to get a hole in it when Harry stabs the diary is his face, just saying that allowing for people to recreate that part of the scene would be both a fun play feature and an easy way to make the set version of the minifigure exclusive. :wink:

Sorry if someone's already mentioned this, but legofan_33 mentioned that they assumed the CMF would be revealed before the Magical Treasury book.  So is there any evidence that the pictures of those CMF figures are actually buried in those unreleased pages somewhere?

I don’t think so
ashnflash reviewed it today and it seemed like there was nothing new

Unfortunately not in the main book, but, since some of the behind-the-scenes images from the end of the book feature the design process for the known 2020 sets, it's possible, albeit unlikely, that some designs from CMF2 or DA may be in the background of those images.

As I‘ve said before, these books never include upcoming sets/minifigs, so I don‘t know why people expected to see CMF S2 or the DA D2C in there :wacko: If they actually did that, they‘d risk it leaking months in advance, in case anyone gets ahold of the book too early. There‘s just no good reason to risk that

The book not showing us anything new isn't a surprise, we've been trying to make that clear for ages. As for the book itself it's hard to get excited for this. The pictures used are all just things you can find on Brickset, the ''fun'' facts are virtually useless for someone who knows his/her HP stuff and the book doesn't even show everything released up to this point. With that beautifull Tom Riddle figure as it's only redeemable quality there's no way I'm spending 20+ euro on this thing, if it's anything like Star Wars it'll even have tons of mistakes in there.

People believe anyone that gives them a "leak", no matter that 9 of 10 times they are fake. The "fakes" get a lot of the attention they crave and they multiply in numbers :hmpf:

Possible ways we can get leaks (top of my head):

  1. Retail catalogues: was very common earlier, but Lego are aware of the danger and they include less info every year.
  2. Toy fairs: earlier the Fan media got invited and could share a lot of info. Now it is mostly secret, but usually at least one person that has been there give some info about it from memory on a small German blogpost or similar.
  3. Lego or another cite makes a mistake and post something before the deadline. Happens from time to time, but easy to recognize because of the quality (e.g. CMF).
  4. Factory leak: after the virus hit they have stopped it seems
  5. People that are in the know like Lego employees, fan media etc and they usually do not speak about it before they have permission.

So next time a person that claims to have a uncle working at Lego or similar have detailed info about a set no one should know about for months unless you are working with it and no picture has leaked; drink some saltwater and move along :tongue:

Sorry for the off topic :innocent2:

You forgot one:

6. A trusted source like FalconFan or Childish Landino provides information :wink:

And in regards to new leakers: I‘m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt at first, as long as their information sounds plausible. This already weeds out a good chunk of the nonsense out there and the rest has to prove themselves, which they usually don‘t :snicker: Exceptions are few and far between, but they do exist

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think they get their info from one or several of the sources I mentioned :wink: They could know someone in the know or they are just better than the rest of us to dig up info when it leaks :tongue:

Touché :blush: I was more thinking of them knowing someone who knows someone who‘s in the know, but that would of course fall into category 5 as well :laugh: 

Either way, it‘s pretty sad to see most of the categories eroding away. 1) was the first to go, followed by 2) and now 4) it looks like. 3) is pretty rare anyway, so 5) is all that‘s left for sure. 4) might come back after the human malware has been dealt with (however long that will take), but I’m not holding my breath.

Overall good for the company, less good for us :tongue:
