I'm honestly pretty suprised we haven't gotten any DA figure leaks since Harry and Fortescue :sceptic: LEGO must've really jumped on that asap, which makes the lack of a CMF announcement a lot weirder :def_shrug:

Yeah, after they appeared on two consecutive days I expected even more to be leaked the following days...

I’m surprised we haven’t seen any more HD pics of the CMF series from our friends in Romania! I’m so desperate for new content, I almost considered offering @lucky_lego_store some money just to post pics of the front and back of the minifigs out of the bag! :laugh_hard:

If you start that we'll never get any free leaks again! 😂

As long as DA is released in September, I really don’t care about leaks anymore.  The CMF reveal pretty much has to be this week or next, though.

The “Muggles Are Our Friends” poster / printed tile is making its rounds again on Instagram - @lego_fans_news_ claims it is from the new Diagon Alley set. I’m still not convinced that it’s real... What do you all think?

The person on IG who leaked the Ponda Baba and Dr Evazan has reposted a shot of that tile with Muggles Are Our Friends saying it is from DA. I know when it leaked months ago it was a rumoured CMF piece, but it got disbelieved for a couple of reasons, such as the art style, so what are people's thoughts about it now? I know the Nagini piece was slated as not real until it did actually come in the CMF.

Hmmm...that’s interesting.  My instinct says real, but I’m going to say it’s fake, just based on the number of times I’ve been wrong this year.  :tongue:

Where would that piece be in the DA set? It looks pretty ugly not going to lie. Can’t put my finger on why I think that though

Does that print actually belong to a poster that's seen in any of the movies? If you google "muggles are your friends" you'll see the same "un-lego-fied" poster. It looks like fanart to me. Or is it official HP paraphernalia?

To me it's because one arm is thin and one thick.

First of all I'm not sure how and where that poster would fit in the set. Second the thing this is based off isn't even real, it's fanart :laugh_hard:

Thing is, I don't take that as a definite 'not real' because Lego just seems to like messing with us and pulling these things lately. :head_back:

I'm not saying it's definetely fake but it would be unbelievably stupid from LEGO to make a printed poster based on fanart :def_shrug:

It wouldn't be my first choice of print let's just say that. :wink:

I wonder if we'll get that UCS Dobby's Sock if we make enough drawings and posters of it :tongue:

And it doesn‘t emulate the original design either since it‘s just blank minifigures instead of the more specific-looking characters on the fanart :grin: I hope it‘s not real

The funny thing is, a UCS Tom Riddle’s diary, in the style of the the fairy tale pop up book Ideas set (with buildable flashback vignettes inside) would actually be pretty cool.

Would I be the only one to find it quite strange to have Harry as his 11 year old self with an older Weasley family with a store that isn’t made until years later? I feel you need to choose one or the other but not both 

The one time we've seen some thing like that was the Ultimate Millennium Falcon 75192. It had young Han, Leia, Chewie, 3PO and Finn, Rey and Old Han. But that was a $700 set aiming to be the biggest and best Lego ever made.

Still no CMF reveal... Welp, doesn’t look the DA reveal is going to happen before the middle of August after all :sceptic: I‘m sure the reveal event would have been something special, but by putting this off until the very last minute, they’re basically asking for it to be leaked :tongue: It’s like challenging a thunderstorm by swirling a metal rod around on an open field

We could technically still get early access for Diagon Alley if they reveal it as late as the end of next week, but my hope is dwindling fast.  And I love your thunderstorm analogy!

And then the lightning just doesn't strike and they build a giant metal tower just for the heck of it :tongue: Yeah, they really are asking for the entire thing to get leaked. I thought they would've learned their lesson after the ''leak catastrophe'' of Series 2

You might actually be right, lego_fans_news_ (the same person who leaked the "Muggles Are Our Friends" poster so not sure if they're 100% legit) says they think it'll be leaked this week.
