Well damn, 5300-5500 sounds almost too good. They can surely fit Gringotts, WWW, and the others. I really hope this set will either be the best set I've ever seen or a total disappointment because I'm already sweating the decision between it and the incoming UCS Mos Eisley Cantina...

Same first I was like I’m buying Diagon Alley first beyond a shadow on a doubt, then that Ponda figure leaked and I’m like, well this might be closer than I thought. Then I remembered that DA would probably have Lockhart, and obvious to everyone who’s been following these threads for the last three years, he’s the minifig I’ve been most excited for since the revival and finally seeing a new minifig of him since the OG yellow face days is going to be amazing. I’m a big Lockhart fanboy. So Team DA for lyfe.

Are you back on the Gringotts train? :excited:

Haha I have always been on the Gringott’s train! It’s my favorite building on Diagon Alley. But I’m still not 100% convinced it will be included... This definitely makes me more hopeful though!

Why not...both? #workworkwork 😂

Tempting... but as a uni student, I cannot justify that :D Been working the whole summer to justify one larger lego purchase. Furthermore, I already have to make drastic changes to my room to even fit one of them on display :D

No way there’s no Gringotts or Leaky Cauldron with that piece count? I’m seriously devastated

I'm struggling. Customising a Mos Eisley Cantina (from the 2014 and 18 sets) was the first thing I did when I refound my interest on lego 1,5 years ago. The Mos Eisley Cantina UCS is the dream set I never thought would be made... But I have my own MOC and recently I've been more into lego HP so tough decisions ahead...

Woah, so I guess this means no Gringotts?  This all but confirms that it will be a set next year.  Personally, I'm more disappointed that the Leaky Cauldron doesn't seem to be included, as that would have a smaller chance of getting its own set compared to Gringotts.  I wonder what the odds are of this set getting an expansion are?  It doesn't seem impossible if the Ninjago Movie could get both the Ninjago City and the Ninjago City Docks sets.

I reckon they mean they’re willing it to be true, and by saying it out loud it might become true. Like making a wish on Genie’s lamp lol. 

It’s more like a law of attraction thing. Affirmations are today’s beesknees:laugh:

1 meter of shops, thats three feet of buildings. It'll probably be great to look at. And it looks like well be getting Lockhart too. But no Gringotts :(

Thanks for this @Falconfan1414! I think this is the most interesting sentence in the whole description. As many of us have already said, we are almost certainly guaranteed to get Gringott’s (and maybe even Borgin and Burke’s and the Leaky Cauldron) as separate sets that can be connected to Diagon Alley. I for one am thrilled.

Good catch. 5500 pieces for just those store is going to be an amazing sight to hold. As long as the add ones are as detailed as this set I am ok with it. At least it gives us something to look forward to!

I really want to make it feel like a living street/town, so the more the merrier!

Not necessarily, it specifically says “There are lots of famous shops that appear in movies, such as the entrance!” Perhaps they simply left out the name?

Why would it say "combine it with other sets" if they aren't announcing Gringotts until next year? Have they ever referred to future sets like that?

Oh boy... The decision is getting even harder if Gringotts is really is omitted. The set has to look veeery special to win me over without Gringotts :'D An additional Gringotts would be great but I, for one, can't imagine buying the DA before at least seeing the missing piece (Gringotts) and its price.

I would LOVE for them to continue this series similar to the Modular buildings, Add Gringotts next year, B&B the next, entire London year after that! Lol

They wouldn’t refer to retired sets that are almost a decade old.

Diagon Yokocho? I mean I understand that’s a japanese term for alley? But why?

Because the info came from Japanese Lego website.

That seems unlikely because this wave seems to be a reset from the previous wave...but who knows.

 

I'm hoping this means we get an official reveal tomorrow!

Maybe it’s the extra surprise set with an underground scene that noknow mentioned! Haha.

I wonder what “magical creatures” they are referring to... Owls and rats are the obvious answer. Could we maybe be getting a new Crookshanks too? Or some Cornish pixies? I can’t think of any other magical creatures in Diagon Alley...

What a bummer, especially at that piece count... personally if WWW or Gringott’s had to take the axe it would of been WWW, I can wait a year for WWW but Gringotts is literally the centerpiece. Am I still excited? yeah but man does that kinda suck. Is it a smart business decision? Yeah, but I’m not too thrilled by it myself. When I’m paying $400 for a lego set, I’m kinda expecting the most crucial part of it to be included. It’s one thing to pay $100 for modulars or add ons, it’s another when you’re paying $400

Definitely a bummer, but at least we know gringotts will be coming at some point based on the description. It’s weird that they would say that for future sets though. Which other sets could be connected to DA? The burrow? Lol

I will riot if the "magical" creatures end up being owls and rats :DD But yeah, I could see them including pygmy puff with Ginny potentially. It was after all purchased from WWW if I recall correctly.

Well that next year-thing is an educated assumption, but it’s not confirmed after all. LEGO isn’t a stranger to teasing the next waves with one set anyway. (PoA based Hogwarts express in 2018)

Huh, for some reason I believed the set wouldn’t be called Diagon Alley (not because of kingnono) so the obvious reason definitely didn’t cross my mind haha.
