Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I have a thought experiment we could do to pass the time:

We have seen in series 2 that along with the main trio Neville, Luna and Dumbledore each got another spot. So what if LEGO has decided that they are such fan favourites that like the trio they will always be represented in the CMF going forward?

So how many CMF viable versions of Luna, Dumbledore and Neville can we think of? What would be their outfits and accessories?

I’lltry first:

Neville: Flying lesson, Hogwarts robes, Broom, remembrall

Luna: Barefoot casual cloathes, Baby Thestral

Dumbledore: White outfit, ‘baby’ Voldermort soul.

Hello everyone. I'm new to eurobricks and I just wanted to say that @lego_fans_news_ on instagram has said that we might see something this week about Diagon Alley. He also said that new information about the set will be coming very soon (he said maybe today ). He also said that there will be 6-12 figures. Of course that would be complitely wrong but since he leaked the cmf and the star wars figures, I think he is reliable.

Sorry, but I don’t think that guy is reliable. And he didn’t leak the CMF. He stole someone else’s content (@lucky_lego_store from Romania) and posted it without giving any credit. Like so many other “LEGO leakers” he just recycles content that he finds on other people’s accounts and tries to pass himself off as someone who has “insider info.” The only genuine “LEGO leaker” for the Harry Potter series that I have ever seen is @TheRandomBlocker. If we do get some additional info on Diagon Alley today, I will be thrilled, but I am not giving any credit to @lego_fans_news for making a lucky guess.

If there is something coming today, it surely won‘t be anything official, the time for that has already passed :grin: Though personally, I don‘t want it to leak any more. Waiting is annoying, sure, but imagine the excitement during the reveal event :excited: They can keep their potato pictures, I want to see the real deal in all its glory!

To be honest I really want to see the set even if it is leaked. I think lego won't reveal it until probably the second or third week of August. I want to see the set leaked first. So that we know what it is about what the minifigures are and what the buildings are. Then they could reveal ot in a huge event and be the best lego set reveal ever. And we probably won't see anything today. I hope we will but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Ooh, I like that Idea! Here're my ideas:

Neville: Goblet of fire outdoor outfit, botany book ( the one moody gives him), gillyweed

Luna: Dress from Bill and Fleur's wedding, cup/decoration

Dumbledore: Half-blood prince robes, cursed hand, inferius/Marvolo's ring

Oh and something else. I might go to the lego store soon. I want to ask about the Diagon Alley set. Maybe they'll have it in the back. I'll just ask for pictures not to buy it. Here no one cares about set releases and reveals so they probably know nothing. But we'll see.

I'm feeling a bit sad, when DA have been official/leaked then we haven't anymore sets to look forward to.. Have anyone the same feeling?

I know that we probably will get more sets next year. But we don't know when and what it's going to be..

I've been thinking that DA set is going to remind of the DA 3D puzzle. The Hogwarts castle and the 3D puzzle is looking almost the same and my guess it that WB want their merchandise have the same look. Have anyone else thought about this?

This year has been a little bit crazy in regards to that. I've spend a lot more than in other years. I blame LEGO, they've been making too much good stuff this year. :P

Are some of those minifigures custom? Or are they from older sets pre-2018?

I'd say half are from recent sets and half are purist customs. I've got about 10 Gryffindor torsos from the 2010 wave and those are distinctive because they have the Gryffindor coat of arms shield on the torso. I've also got one Slytherin jumper and two Gryffindor torsos from all the way back in 2004, when I got a few of the original Prisoner of Azkaban sets. One of those even has time-turner printing on it which is very useful but at the moment I've been using that for Percy instead of a prefect badge! :grin:

I really like customising my own students especially when over the last 15 years the jumper printing has been fairly consistent. As I said a few pages back I'm waiting for a few copies of the Hogwarts Students Accessory Pack to be delivered and then I should be able to customise most, if not all, of the Hogwarts side characters.

Good idea looking at the 3d puzzle! That model actually has the clearest pictures of some of the shops I've seen which is very useful for if there are more individual shops than the original set (which in my mind is very likely)

I would be very surprised if this is all that the set includes as I feel like a Lego set would really need Gringotts and the Leaky Cauldron on either end to complete the street.

Agreed, that was one of the major things missing from the last version :thumbup:

Ζήτω η Ελλάδα ! Haha. I live in America but my family has a summer home on the island of Crete. No European travel for us this year though :sceptic:. Greek toy stores really are the best. I remember getting new Star Wars toys every summer that my friends in the US couldn’t get until the fall because Greeks could care less about shelf dates. Fun fact: the Greek edition of Harry Potter is JK Rowling’s #1 favorite of all the translations. Anyway, back to LEGO!

Yes I agree. No one cares about release dates here. This is why my lego store might have the Diagon Alley in the back. But I don't know what to say to them. I would really need some help. Can I just say "Can you tell me if you have lego set 75978 on the back?". Maybe.

How much of a street are you thinking of? Because I think there should be a modular row of shops that all connect to each other. A bit of pavement in front of each would be fine too but no more than the Modular City sets. I'm of the opinion that creating the full street between the shops will probably be really easy to do with a lot of grey plates so I would rather Lego did not devote a huge piece count to the street outside of the shops.

That is a fun fact! I remember hearing somewhere that JK Rowling studied Classical Civilisations; maybe that's why? It would be neat if that was the reason why as Classical Civilisations was one of my A-Levels and studying Classical Sparta and the Bronze Age Aegean made up quite a considerable part of my degree too :grin:

Ah me too! Can't remember half of it though. J.K's definitely done a lot of studying in that area though. There are some fascinating essays out there going really in depth.

The perfect street for me would be as big as the one in the modular buildings

Do any of you think that there is a possibility on say august 14th or 15th that Lego reveals DA and lets VIPs order it on that day as well?

I would love for that to happen but I don't think it will.

That minifig count is unacceptable to be honest

If it real (I hope it is not) I will be very disappointed. I think it should be 17 or at least 15 minifigures.

Man everyone is desperate for anything regarding the d2c. First I doubt even if your LEGO store had it they would show it to random people, it doesn’t really work like that. Second LEGO fan news is guessing when it comes to the reveal and figure count. The set and cmf could be revealed at anytime

If Florean Fortescue, the ice cream minor character whose in a grand total of 3 chapters and 2 seconds of screentime as featured then anything less than 15 minifigures would be very surprising :laugh:. I feel like this is a set where Lego will throw in all sorts of side characters to justify the size even more for hardcore AFOL Harry Potter fans

Also I had a few thoughts regarding potential minifigures: 

  • If the Leaky Cauldron is included then I think characters from that scene in the first film are very likely such as the original Tom the Barman (with hair), Daedalus Diggle and even Quirrel (Lego can then reuse his minifigure from the Great Hall) 
  • If Flourish and Blotts is included then I think Lockhart, Lucius Malfoy, Draco and Ginny are very likely to recreate that particular scene from Chamber of Secrets. Ginny's cauldron and Tom Riddle's diary could even be included. 

Also if yet another Ginny comes in this set, this time with miniature legs, would that count as enough Ginny variants for everyone on this forum? :tongue:

Hello falconfan I'm a big fan. First you are right everyone wants to see the d2c or at least see a leaked figure from it. Second here in Greece NO ONE cares about lego reveals and dates. I don't think they'll show it to me but it is worth a try. Just to let you know. I called an employee and she didn't even know about the mario gwp set even though they were giving it. And about lego fans news. The only reason I believe him is because he showed the cantina minifigures and the bespin duel set. He could be wrong.
