Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'd rather we got Cat Hermione from CoS than another casual one, but I do wonder how different her, Ron's and Harry's heads will be compared to the sets. 

Fred and George seem like a waste of spots - I know I would've loved Rita Skeeter especially since I can't think of any other sets she'd be in. OOTP Sirius and Tonks were also on my list of hopes; especially Tonks with an alternate duck or pig face.

Also it might just be the quality but Ron looked like he was wearing his Quidditch outfit.

New and not reused heads for Ginny and Bellatrix are great! (the set Bellatrix head doesn't even fit the fig it was first used on (GOTG Mantis))

Of course, how can I forget GoF Tonks... Would've loved to get her in this series. Oh well, I hope she'll show up in a set or the next CMF.

Since next year won’t have HP CMFs or D2C perhaps they can pour more love into the minifigs in the sets. We’ve had some very neat minifigures with new molds in licensed sets (Speaking generally)

Perhaps we’ve gotten used to seeing rather bland/reused figures in sets lately but nothing is set in stone. All in all we got some nice full body prints and dual molded legs in this year’s wave. So for example, I don’t see how a Rita with full body printing and dual molded legs coming in a future lake task/durmstrang ship set would be toooo far fetched. About the inclusion of her in a set like that? I mean look at Ron in the attack of the burrow set... he wasn’t even present during the scene. Same goes for Pomfrey in a future CoS and so on. 
 

TLDR; LEGO has proven throughout history that we don’t have to wait for a CMF to get detailed figures or “more obscure” characters.

Do you have any particularly good ideas you would use the duplicates for? Wondering if you have any good ideas i might borrow? :-D

Griphook just has a fantastic torso and a usefull headpiece for creating more goblins. Harry has nice legs and that fantastic Advanced Potion Making book I'll be using in my potions classroom. Neville will be used to set up a Care of Magical Creatures class and make more Gryffindors. Kingsley, James, Lilly, Ginny, Sprout and Dumbledore just have good pieces to get multiples of.

Even if I squint my eyes I can't see how anyone could see a Quidditch outfit in that :def_shrug:

Don't know if anyone's mentioned this already but, to those disappointed about Rita Skeeter not being in the CMF, there's still a small chance she'll show up in DA if they include the Daily Prophet office (or at least a booth).

I ignored Harry completely. He does seem to have shoes and a belt right?

Looking again, I was probably confused by the torso colour. I can see now that it's a casual fit.

She might also get shoehorned into a random Hogwarts set/Ministry of Magic/Bill and Fleur's wedding/insert alternate scene, seeing as they did put Draco out of place in the Astronomy Tower. I guess it's a bit more of a stretch but I suppose they could do it... Some of the choices in the CMF do feel a little weird but I'm sure there was intention behind it. I wonder if they'll do an interview like the Star Wars designers did recently.

His outfit may seem out of place but I would be really suprised if Draco wasn't in the AT at all

Well I’m glad we got CMF out of the way at least, now onto the main course!

I’m personally not into mini figure collecting, but I can see how the later half of the reveal was pretty bland.

Technically LEGO themselves haven't revealed it yet so we'll have to wait a bit longer for it to be ''out of the way'' :wink:

 

I'm also a bit curious about this leak. The fact this guy took a picture of the box already proves he knew what it was, so why did he:

1. Make a picture with a potato

2. Not buy a single bag to provide us with a picture of the leaflet (so we can see all figures and their accessories properly)

I love all of these figures and finally a sword of Gryffindor!! I really hope DA includes Lockhart and Lucius now though. And it’s a shame there’s no Pomfrey or Rita

So it seems that the Sword of Godric Gryffindor is a new mould. Or is it just me?

I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist myself and I think the timing of this “leak” (along with the strategic timing of a few other leaks this year) is really suspect. Does anyone else think LEGO knows and acknowledges that leaks are part of the fun for AFOLs and has tried to take control the narrative? It’s Harry Potter’s birthday and LEGO knew fans were clamoring for something today. Maybe rather than do an official announcement today, which could have drawn some unwanted attention to the fact that it’s also JK Rowling’s birthday, they offered us this grainy “leak” to satiate us?

Kinda odd though to see MM with medium legs, considering the actress was an adult,  but it makes sense. Great new colour to get them in though. 

I find her having mid-legs such a strange inclusion, but it is always nice to get more of them.

That's fantastic tbh, it seems we are getting Chamber of Secrets little by little :)

Myrtle was in her 3rd or 4th year when she died so mid-legs aren't strange at all

I doubt streetdating is a thing in Romania :laugh_hard: No offense to any Romanians here - my mother went to art school there and it’s a lovely country. I just can’t see that being something that’s enforced there.

Luna and Myrtyle are on Instagram out of bag. So it's only a matter of time before the leaflet shows up!

Luna's legs are nice.
