Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I just messaged the Insta person about possibly trying to order a set of 16.  It's "only" a markup of approximately $45, and who knows how difficult (or safe) it will be to get them come September.

EDIT: I think the selections made for this series all but confirm a Series 3, unless the theme somehow fizzles out before then, which I don't see happening.

Who are you all most disappointed that we missed out on from our predictions? I’m definitely disappointed about not getting Professor Lockhart because I figured this was our best shot at getting a Cornish Pixie mold. I imagine we will probably get him in the Diagon Alley set but without  any of those little blue buggers 

Pomfrey and Lockhart with a Pixie, I wanted more new creaturs mold.. It was better in the first HP cmf with loads of animal molds.

But overall I like this cmf.

 

 

Have an licensed brickheadz came without a print before? For me it feels like fake of the new leak with Hagrid and Buckbeak

Hi guys! Haven't messaged in a while because I've been working hard for the upcoming Diagon Alley...:D The new CMF looks fantastic, although I'm a bit bummed about some of the inclusions, as are most I reckon. My favourites are probably Myrtle, Dumbledore, Sprout, Bellatrix and James but I adore almost all of them! The twins are great but feel like a wasted spot because, well, they are nearly identical. My least favourites are probably Ron, Hermione and Ginny although they are wonderfully printed. Its good to get a better faceprint for Ginny (and Bellatrix) because the one in the Burrow is dreadful (the set is one of my all-time favourites though!). Now that we didn't get Lucius or Gilderoy here, they must be included in the Diagon Alley. Anyway, thanks for keeping the hype alive during these anxious times.

I personally wouldn't, I get why people like the dress piece but accurate height is more important to me. At least the 1x2 brick solution still looks good

I think it’s a good fix, my only complaint is that they don’t print on the side of tiles yet (Is it impossible after that printed cheese slope?) so the printing looks cut off.

So people in this thread are trying to get full sets off the guy on Instagram now? Why does this not surprise me? :laugh_hard:

The Unikitty ''CMF'' series says otherwise

I'm going to get a full set somewhere, at some point.  You're right, it's kind of shameful to just bombard the poor guy.  :blush:

I don’t buy full CMFs often so how much would you expect a complete set of these to cost?

Judging from past series here in the Netherlands I'd say anywhere between 65 and 80 euro

They also frequently print on the ‘hip’ pieces of minifigure legs, which definitely aren’t thicker than a tile/plate edge

The CMFs look good. I'm especially impressed at how they continue to add stuff that makes the obligatory inclusions more appealing. Never thought I'd go out of my way to acquire yet another Hermione or Ron but I just might pick one of the two up for a butterbeer. They do seem to be leaning hard into rereleasing characters already in sets (Main three, Luna, Ginny, Neville, Dumbledore) and while the figures look great, it would've been nice for them to find a place for a Ginny in another set under $100 instead of taking up a place in the CMF. Also picking Slughorn's party Ginny instead of a Hogwarts robes Ginny is not a choice I'm a fan of, but that's just nitpicking.

Yeah definitely Pomfrey and Lockhard. I honestly can't wrap my head around how they haven't come out with a Pomfrey yet after making the Hospital Wing in Clock Tower. They could've added her to that set or released her this CMF, doesn't make sense to me.

I like that Sprout has the skirt piece although not to happy about the resulting height, but it was the best choice IMO. Would any of you have rioted if they used the 1x2 brick and tile instead? Just wondering.

idk her hat is so big, I'd be worried she would topple over easily with a 1x2

Yeah, for two character variations that would have run the risk of being completely lackluster otherwise, they really went as extravagant as they could with Ron and Hermione. Plus, those outfits will fit in City/contemporary MOCs easily, and the Butterbeer mugs... the Butterbeer mugs take advantage of having a fictional nonalcoholic drink that looks a lot like beer to make a piece that lego’s policies would otherwise never allow. There will be a ton of AFOLs clambering to get ahold of those things. And a clear glass with colored ‘liquid’ in it for drinking is a new thing in general isn’t it? (I know there’s been a Erlenmeyer flask in a couple of different colors before, but that’s not exactly a proper drinking vessel).

Butterbeer is alcoholic, it is low, but still alcoholic, Hermione gets drunk on it in the HBP movie and Winky gets drunk on it in one of the books ☺️

The park versions of Butterbeer are nonalcoholic, the in-universe version however isn't. Quite a few people get drunk on it in the books

The Hagrid and buckbeak brickheadz set has been revealed. Both  are well done and it's cool how they did Hagrid's hair.

👆🏻👆🏻 This, butterbeer irl is just a sickly sweet drink (that is god awful imo) but in the books/films it’s definitely alcoholic, but I doubt if Lego really pays that much attention, if they do then I guess The Leaky Cauldron isn’t a ridiculous thought

I just realised, looking at the figures, Harry does have Lily's eyes *oh2*:tongue:. kinda sad Bellatrix doesn't have a second face print though. Dumbledore looks great though.

Also I guess there's no reason at all now to assume that the leaky cauldron can't appear in the d2c. We've already had the butter beer so they might as well throw in the buildings.

The Hagrid brickheadz is kinda meh, no new prints and I feel like I've seen better custom ones. Oh well.

Also, for everyone in the Netherlands and Germany. The astronomy tower is heavily discounted on Amazon. Don't think it get much cheaper than this so for everyone waiting for the right moment, I think now might be the right time.

She does, the evil grin on the packaging and more stern one on the leaflet

I think Winky is the only one who gets drunk on it in the books. All the other scenes with drunk characters either don’t specify the drink or stated it to be something else. It’s regularly served to minors who are explicitly not allowed to consume drinks that are shown to actually get adult wizards drunk (Slughorn seems to have a laissez-faire attitude towards serving Harry alcohol in HBP despite him being a few month underage), like mulled mead or firewhisky. In any case, since the (extremely mildly) alcoholic version is totally fictional and the real version is nonalcoholic, it fits into lego’s guidelines of not depicting real life alcohol consumption.

Myrtle is up as well. The print inside the diary is Harry and Tom writing to each other, very cool print!

Why is this series so amazing :wub:

All the minifigures are fantastic. I have a nice retailer near me that checks the content or the bags (without opening them), so I will get the minifigures that I need from there. I will skip Luna, Kingsley, Moaning Myrtle and Pomona Sprout, and MAYBE Griphook (I really want that Gryffindor Sword tho).

I love how detailed those minfigures are - literally all of them (except for Griphook) have leg pritning and there are around 13 new moulds.

Just like Disney Series 2, I find Lego's choice of HP figures to be lackluster.  Of course, there are some nice ones, but it does little to fill in the important gaps.
