The pumpkin was released for the Stranger Things set (a full month before the Harry Potter wave used it)

FTFY, the Upside Down and Hagrid’s Hut were both 2019 releases :wink:

Does anyone else  think that the the Hermione  in the CMF looks more like Emma Watson?

Do you mean compared to the other year 3 through 6 versions? If so, that’s no surprise since this face was specifically designed for her, while the other one was repurposed from PotC :wink: Out of the 4 ones available, this is my favourite Hermione face print, with the year 1 one being a close second :thumbup:

I over-prepared for the moment DA comes out - I created a bot that will notify me the minute it's available to purchase :grin:. Happy to share it with anyone if they're interested - it only looks at the US website for now though.

I used it to track the NES and Grand Piano when they both came out and interestingly enough, they were actually available a few minutes before midnight. So you never know.

I'm still not sure whether I should get it online or take the 70 km drive to the next store...both variants are kinda risky 😅

Your bot sounds interesting for me! How difficult would it be to change the website's version to another country by myself?

My plan is to order online as soon as it's available, go in store the next morning, and cancel the online order if I get it in store :laugh:.

The bot isn't easy to set up manually, but I can look into adding more location support by the time Sept. 1st rolls around! DM me if you have any questions about it :classic:

That's kind of the downside of Lego's insanely fast service here in Canada. If I place an order at midnight, it'll be in the warehouse long before customer service opens in the morning. I've tried a couple of times to amend an order first thing the next morning with no luck.

It's great for the most part though, as orders are at my door first thing in the morning the day after. When I see people complaining about their orders lingering in the warehouse for days on end, I find it hard to believe it's the same company.

That Dumbledore is amazing! The printing is fiiine and the hair/hat mold is fantastic!

My 2nd favorite is Ron for sure, his torso/legs are super detailed and I love the color scheme. His 2nd expression is recycled except for the eyebrows but okay.

Harry is okay, not my favorite variant. But that book is very well done and the legs are useful!

Hermione is my least favorite. There’s something about that face that I can’t quite put my finger on, and I’m not a fan of how the colors on the torso look now.

They’re all kind of a miss tbh, but then again they haven’t nailed Ron that well either IMO. If you morphed them all into one perhaps it would look more like her :roflmao:

@Otherworld re Privacy connection errors - well there's the universe telling me to get off Eurobricks! :laugh:

According to Brickset HH 2Jun and ST12 Jun, who used the budget on the part however is harder to guess :shrug_oh_well:

When August 31st comes around I'll probably be sitting behind my laptop around 23:30 refreshing S@H like an idiot :laugh_hard: If everything goes according to plan I should be able to get it day 1, I've got the money set aside and I got myself a Paypal account a while ago in preparation so fingers crossed!

Being able to get DA on day one would be a dream come true, especially considering college doesn't start untill the 7th for me which gives me plenty of time to finish building it :excited:

Oh nooooo, this doesn't sound good. As long as it's back in time for Christmas, I reckon I'll be happy

It almost certainly will I’d say although would imagine it’ll be hard to find. But hey, at least that way you might be able to take advantage of a double points promo!

Finally, I can get back on eurobricks again. Nothing wrong with my clock :damn::laugh_hard:

Either way I love the butterbeer glasses. Never would've thought we would ever get those. The mold looks really cool. Also love the new faces for Ron and Hermione.

The potions book's tile looks really great with the sectumsempra spell and all. Just kinda wished it also included the name Half Blood Prince. Oh well, this will do just fine.

1. What do you think are going to be for next year for Deathly Hallows

2. Are there going to be Fantastic Beasts 2 or 3 sets

3. Are there going to be any 20th Anniversary Harry Potter sets

4. Which characters which have never been made are going to be made

I have an entire list of my guesses for 2021 and 2022. But I don't think this is the right forum for that so I save that for next year. But to keep it short, basically I expect them to use 2021 to make sets mostly set around the horcruxes (with an exception of the ring, which would be the resurrection stone instead) and the battle of Hogwarts.

I don't really expect too much for the 20th anniversary as unlike star wars, Harry potter was most of that time not around. Maybe a fun little polybag and festive boxes but that's about it.

For 2022 I expect them to give us the majority missing locations, like a chamber of secrets. But also with two or so crimes of grindelwald sets because of the third movie. Maybe a third one for the actual movie, but that's always tricky. And a cmf series 3 to fill in on the missing characters  (with both fb 1 and 2 included for the characters that are unlikely to appear in sets, like Gnarlak.) Maybe another d2c, this time Hogsmeade. And from 2023 and onwards they go revisit old locations with maybe a hint of that new direction with a 19 years later train in 2022.

But back to topic

Don't you guys think it might be wise to wait a little in case there's a late gwp reveal? Or is that always revealed the same day?

I made the ‘mistake’ to buy D2C Hogwarts the second it released and missed out on the Diagon Alley GWP as a result. My plan this time is to wait for a VIP double points event later in the year, unless they come out with a really cool GWP AND double points when DA releases...

I’m also prioritising an HP CMF box over DA, as DA will be available for longer and I like to at least try and spread out my purchases🤷🏻‍♀️

This is why I'm waiting to buy The Burrow and some of the other 2020 sets in case a sweet GWP pops up a month or two later. In 2018, the Hogwarts D2C was released in August (for VIP) and the Diagon Alley GWP was in November, so people who bought the D2C on release day didn't know about or get the GWP.

 

EDIT: @MooneyRemus beat me to it :laugh:

I think I will wait until at least late November so I don't miss out on a GWP I think there is a high chance for a mini Hogsmeade GWP.

I’ve bought a tent, an Ethernet cable and a modem and am planning on camping next to my ISP to ensure I’ve covered all possibilities :wink:

Yup, that was a painful day I can tell you... First world problems lol but I remember feeling cheated by Lego for buying such a large set on release day and not getting the GWP😅 Oh well. I’ll watch reviews of DA until the happy moment when I can afford to buy it

I knew I would want to get DA asap so there are some other sets I haven't bought yet that I can purchase to get a possible GWP:wink:

Times like these I realize how lucky I am to live 5 minutes away from a Lego store. Glad I don’t have to worry about ordering online

Lol I can't imagine, I only recently got out of my dark ages so I've only heard that it happened from others. The good thing is that if they delay the GWP until a few months later, it won't be exclusive to purchasing DA (as opposed to something like the mini batmobile GWP where you had to buy the larger batmobile). So as long as you have something to buy, you won't miss out.

I thought so too (I live like 20 min way). But when the Grand Piano came out there was a huge line of people already there before me and I missed it by one person :pir-bawling:

No point in refreshing cause you can pre-order the sets today though, right?

Yeah I thought I remembered it going something like that, but I didn't pay enough attention to the Hogwarts d2c in 2018 to be sure. I already bought most of the 2020 stuff so I will definitely have to wait for the gwp set.

Gonna be my first time trying to be on s@h again since last time they canceled my order without notifying me, because I wanted to pay with my bank (since I didn't had any creditcards.) Apparently they won't accept that at higher prices. Wish they had notified me sooner as the set was gone by the time I realised. So I guess I'm gonna need PayPal.
