If you want to point fingers of an announcement delay it would be Coronavirus, I wouldn’t be surprised if the CMF gets pushed back because of it. 

You mean because they don’t want people to touch blind bags? If so, consider this:

As for Diagon Alley, I know July 31st would of been the optimal reveal date but the D2Cs have recently been revealed two weeks out from release date so I’m impatiently waiting for the second or third week of August at this point.

To be honest if it wasn't for the fact that Lego has done the VIP question event I would be seriously thinking that both may have be delayed due to CV. Whereas now we know something is coming, it's just a question of when and is it both DA and the CMF. @Lego-Freak I think they mean because production will probably have been slowed. I'd say if anything if will be the CMF delayed, because whilst we have seen leaked DA figures, we've had no leaks regarding the CMF other than a digital image.

Perhaps in the US, but everything scheduled for August in Europe will be released as planned so I don't see why that should be different for the September releases :wink:

A few weeks ago I decided to treat myself after a big win at work to a brand new unopened Unexpected Gathering at Bag End set from the LEGO Lord of the Rings series. I have to say that it was probably one of the most enjoyable builds I’ve ever completed and looks perfect next to my Tolkien books.

This was one of my favourite builds as well. It's so cozy and charming and your display is a nice little nook. There was a power outage while I was working on it but luckily I had enough candles to keep building, which really added to the effect. I always part out sets eventually but I used the general concept and the circular window when I built the Hufflepuff common room. I even did circular doors to the dorms.

Why were y'all under the belief that there was going to be an announcement today, what significance is today of? Isn't the 31st the day of interest?

This is amazing - what a beautiful book editions! I just bought my first HP book set since my broken down ones from back home. Looking forward to having A lit up Diagon Alley on my drawer across from the books :)

Also, had a scary earthquake in LA this morning. Better get to build DA before it comes tumbling down! :laugh:

since Lego has shied away from making pubs before (note the lack of Moe the Bartender in the Simpsons line, and the rumoured cancelled Moe's Tavern set). Including the Leaky Cauldron as part of a Diagon Alley D2C would allow them to include an iconic location without focusing on a place which sells alcohol.

I feel that Lego could definitively get away with advertising it more as a hotel then a pub.

The idea was that there would be an announcement tomorrow, but a tease for that announcement today, as that has basically been the case for the two most recent D2C sets

Nice! I’d love to see pics of your Hufflepuff common room!

Thanks @Modal! And I’m glad to hear you are safe after this mornings earthquake.

The books are the Tolkien deluxe pocket set by Houghton Mifflin, which came out in 2014. I love them. Still available on Amazon ( 58% off today! Only $20).

For my LEGO Harry Potter sets, other than the big long Hogwarts castle display, I display my individual sets next to my various HP book collections. I’ve got the Jim Kay illustrated editions (can’t wait for OotP next year), the original Scholastic editions, and I just preordered the first Minalima designed book.

I still think we will get a full reveal tomorrow.  If not, I’m out of this guessing game.

The notion of TLG caring about the significance of July 31st for HP isn‘t too outlandish when you consider the yearly May the Fourth event and this year’s announcement of the Mario theme on March 10th. However, that is in no way a guarantee they will commemorate the date with any reveals. They could simply post a „happy birthday“ congratulatory thing on Twitter and call it a day, just to rub it in :devil:

Gone fishing!

I wonder how many pages that are waiting for me here when I get back, especially if the reveal is tomorrow :laugh:

I really, really am getting tempted by the Minalima book! Like you, I have the Jim Kay editions, which are wonderful. Jim Kay has been suffering from depression, and I don't know for sure when Order of the Phoenix will come out. As of Febraury, he had barely completed any work on it. https://www.therowlinglibrary.com/2020/02/06/artist-jim-kay-revealed-he-suffers-from-depression-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix-launch-may-be-delayed/. I love displaying the books next to the sets! I also totally agree on how wonderful Gathering of Bag End is...still one of my top ten sets.

Many pages full of tears and lamentation I assume :head_back: ...or tears of joy, but I‘m not holding my breath

Thank you. :tongue: Though for the record I'd rather you are right and we get a reveal + you get spared.

Considering this whole pitchfork thing there won't be just tears 🤣

A teaser isn't absolutely necessary so I'm still cautiously optimistic for tomorrow, I just can't believe LEGO might ignore such an obviously appropriate day for this announcement!

I'm away for a couple of days but I will get back to you.

Like everyone, I am eagerly anticipating the DA and CMF reveals. It's my birthday and all I want is to see them! I live in Canada and the regular sets still say "Coming Soon" without a date so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get any of this wave but even seeing what's to come is very exciting. I pre-built a Privet Drive MOC and it's just waiting for the stickers and minifigs.

Zavvi shipped my Forbidden Forest set without tracking, so I have no idea when it’s going to arrive...

and Hedwig has been out of stock for a while I think
