Certainly looks like WWW is the “centerpiece” of the set. There’s so much detail done with the stickers

 Doesn't necessarily mean that it' the center piece. After all the shop, in universe, has a lot of detail.

Amazing stuff, all the shops I want are in it from Flourish and Blotts to Quality Quidditch Supplies. And I was right about WWW, it’s just too iconic to leave out. I highly doubt they would leave Gringotts out especially if Scribulus and the Daily Prophet are in. Betting it would crack 5,000 pieces with how many shops we are getting.
This could really be one of if not the greatest lego set ever, really can’t wait to see the minifigure selection which I assume will be just as incredible based on the awesome Harry variant and Florean Fortescue. Really looks like this is going to be the end all be all Diagon Alley set.

Definitely one of the best if there are no obvious exclusions. I think what makes WWW and Gringotts so unique are their creative exteriors. It would definitely feel weird and perhaps “empty” not having that crooked white tower overlooking the street.

And if for some reason Gringotts isn’t included but coming in a future set, they better hint at that immediately if they don’t want to get into shit with the AFOL’s lol

I don’t think the Prophet office means we’ll get Rita Skeeter, there are a lot more important figures that they need to put in the set before one who is only ever actually seen at Hogwarts

I hope we're getting Rita in the set, she is one of the figures I'm really missing.

I truly don’t understand people’s obsession with Rita Skeeter, she’s one of the most boring/bland characters in the entire franchise 🤣🤣, but each to their own I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️

I'm thinking if anything is left out it will be Borgin and Burkes, but the Knockturn Alley sign is a, excuse the pun, sign we will get it as a standalone set. Now I know Borgin and Burkes is not in Diagon Alley, but that didn't stop Lego putting it in the last DA set. Thankfully now this theme has grown to a place where Lego could easily do a Diagon Alley set and then a separate Borgin and Burkes. Good times!

Any thoughts on how they will have designed the Weasley big head on the facade? Brick built or those weird Star Wars buildable figures?

Whilst I think it’s possible, I don’t think we should read too much into signs and stuff for future sets, I mean look at the wanted poster in the Hogwarts Express set, Sirius was supposed to use the Moody hairpiece and didn’t

I would assume it would be brick built. Similar in style to that of the giant figures such s Grawp.

I don't know, there's more of Rita in the books than the films and I think she's as developed as any other character.

the balcony build of Gringotts might now allow for a sticker or a print.

 

Rita is colorful! and quite different to a lot of the other figs we have.

Wait, EIGHT shops?!?! And here I was hoping for six at best! And come on, Gringotts has to be there as well surely... this Is looking better than we ever imagined...

Also for some reason I assumed the Harry leak was Borgin & Burke’s but i guess Ollivanders also makes sense.

I haven’t read the books in a while, but I remember disliking her in those too, or rather, less disliking her and more not caring about her as a character/plot point 🤣

lets all hope there is another sticker sheet with a leaky cauldron and Gringotts sign.

I guess so, there's also missing another sign for Florean Fortescue's Icream parlour. It's "weird" that they have included a sticker for the menu but not for the sign

well there is no sign that ice cream one is an actual building.

in the 'current' film set   ice cream parlor and flourish blotts   are shaped the same, just different colors, so lego might have skipped making a full ice crem parlor.

I feel kinda stupid for asking this, but why does the ice cream shop in universal studios look different than this? is it inaccurate, how it looks in a different movie or something else?

I think there might be hope for a Gringotts/leaky cauldron sticker sheet because when you have a very unimportant shop like Scibbulus take up a place on the sticker sheet that could easily be taken by Gringotts sign I think it just means that Gringotts will probably have either a huge sign or ton of sticker and the same with leaky cauldron.

It is not stupid, the version of Dragon Alley in the theme parks is not completely movie accurate. They made the ice cream shop bigger and placed in another location to welcome more clients hehehe
