Does anybody know where the room of requirement connects to the hogwarts?

I’m going to put mine on the right side(looking at the interior facing you) of the Astronomy Tower. Those decrees obviously for better near the Great Hall, but that’s where the Clocktower is.

I hope you’re right. The last couple big Hogwarts sets have been focused on dances and fancy dress parties though - not big battle scenes. This fits with the theory that LEGO is targeting more girls with this series. 

I can more easily see us getting a Fleur & Bill wedding party tent set, for example. Or even a big beautiful Grimmauld Place where the focus can be the Christmas party. Smaller Hogwarts sets that incorporate colorfully decorated house dorms along within an action / adventure element seem more likely than a big $100 set focused on a battle. 

Like I said, I hope I’m wrong because I’d love to see a massive Battle of Hogwarts set centered around the Bell Towers where Harry and Voldy have part of their in-flight battle in the belfries. I guess we’ll have to wait and see...

Bill and Fleur’s wedding is the only time in DH when anyone really wears fancy dress though, and it really doesn’t need a $90-100 price point set since it’s held in a tent. And while the Astronomy Tower this year was based off the Slug Club party, the Burrow was clearly based off a battle with some plat features to go with it. So I think there’s a decent chance of two large DH2 sets next year (Gringotts and the battle of Hogwarts) and some smaller DH1 based sets (with the wedding tent being medium sized) like we got with HBP and OotP this year. 
Plus, while I think appealing to girls might have something to do with the focus on parties in the last two years, I think it’s also a move on lego’s part to make sure the highest price point sets are packed with exclusive characters and variations to make them extra desirable/give collectors as many characters and outfits as possible (as opposed to the same uniformed trio + Malfoy + Dumbledore + Snape we got in every single large set the last time the theme ran). If you look at it I’m from that point of view, the Battle of Hogwarts is great because all the significant characters are in casual clothes.

I could see us getting a privet drive size Malfoy manner. A Wedding tent at about $40 usd, probably with Xenophilius Lovegood in it. Assuming that we don't get a lovegood house. Then maybe a small battle of the 7 potters set with a flying motorcycle. Then gringotts and bell towers as the two big sets.

Can anyone post pics of the Great Hall, Whomping Willow and Astronomy Tower connected, but with some sections of the Whomping Willow set removed to make the distance between the Great Hall and the Astronomy Tower a bit more proportionate?

I really like the AT and the GH, but when I see them connected with the full WW set they're too far apart IMO. I can't find anything on Google Images.

Do we have a Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion room set up yet or are we waiting to start that after Diagon Alley has been revealed? 

Now that most of us have had our hands on the 2020 sets and we know what will and won’t be included in the D2C Diagon Alley, my mind is swimming with ideas for what this next wave could include. 

My current predictions are:

- Escape from Gringott’s - $120 full facade of Gringott’s to scale with the D2C Diagon Alley featuring a bank vault on the ground floor and a two story bank hall with a giant chandelier and rows of goblin bankers. Comes with a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon.

- the Durmstrang Ship - $99 ship build and a smaller build of the second task platform with plenty of mermaids and Grindylows

- Malfoy Manor - $80 facade of manor with long dining room table / entry hall and dungeon

- Battle of Hogwarts - $60 set focused on the Viaduct Bridge with knights of Hogwarts, golden trio, Voldy, death eaters, and a Giant 

- Chamber of Secrets - $40 set in the style of the Whomping Willow set or the RoR set featuring the Slytherin dorms, the Head of Salazar Slytherin statue, and a basilisk build

- Forest of Glen - $20 set with the trio and their magic tent, some tree builds, a doe Patronus, and the sword of Gryffindor

- Advent Calendar - $40 with a theme of Christmas at the Burrow - variants of the Weasleys and friends  

- Quidditch Player Minifig Pack - $15

I'm sure next year we will get both a large Gringotts set and a large castle set (maybe not $100 USD but at least $70). Since the last two Hogwarts sets were aimed at girls and more party focused I think LEGO could do the opposite and fully embrace the battle scene. I'd especially love if they included lots of exploding features. I always found the lone exploding bridge on the 2011 set a bit lackluster. For minifigures I would want the trio, Neville, McGonagall, a suit of armor, Voldemort, a death eater, and Zabini (as a reference to the 2011 version).  
 

I understand why some people think we will get the wedding tent but I don't see it happening there's a much more important tent we need to get from DH and I can't see them doing 2 tents in one year. 
 

Then again maybe everything we've said is wrong and LEGO will pull an OOTP and give us a $20 Battle of Hogwarts and $30 Glen forest: Snatcher Encounter.

Do you want all of the WW parts removed or just the short bits?

i think it is unlikly that we would get both the lake task and the chamber of secrets in one year. I recon one is hopeful. If you look at all the books that have had sets for them so far. Each one has a specific iconic scene that we predicted and Lego knows we all want.

Book 1: Forbidden corridor 

Book 2: Chamber of secrets

Book 3: Shrieking shack

Book 4: Lake task

Book 5 : Ministry duel 

Book 6: Inferi Cave

I think that we might get one next year and then the rest later on. Maybe all in 2022 wave.

That’s a really good point. Also, in re-reading my list I realize I kind of threw my “sell it to girls” theory out the window. I guess this is part prediction / part wish list. Maybe instead of the Chamber we will get the Wedding Party, but I would be heartbroken. I feel like 2021 is definitely our year to get the Durmstrang ship though... We even have a little wink to it in the Advent Calendar this year with the little Durmstrang Ship “toy” build.

Does anyone actually care about the inferi cave? I always thought the only reason we considered it was because we thought LEGO would make small and large sets from both OOTP and HBP this year. I doubt it's in anyone's top 10 unproduced sets or anything.

I like very much of this list. I will add some of missing remake sets like Forbidden corridor, Troll on the Loose, Chamber of secrets, Shrieking shack and The task on the Lake 

Every wave have a forbidden Forest set so maybe the voldmort against harry.

But may personal opinion the wave will include a buildable Niffler statue like the Hedwig This year. 2021 is the release date for the third movie of fantastic beasts so it will be in line of that. ( 2022 fawkes the phoenix 😉 )

It’s definitely not on my top 10 (not even my top 20), but I think @Tommy269 ‘s point is more that it’s an iconic / climatic scene from the movie that we haven’t seen in LEGO form.

Thanks! I would love the Forbidden Corridor and Troll on the Loose, too, but I doubt we will get them next year. There’s also a high likelihood that Fantastic Beasts 3 will be postponed until 2022, which is why I left them out.

Huge fan of this set. I would like that this set will include a rail system similar to that one Present on the set of the “Joker Manor”

I don’t think the 2021 thread starts till we get a solid list of set leaks or at the beginning of the year. I think DH doesn’t have a lot of set options, the main ones to me would be: Bell Towers with Boathouse, Forbidden Forest 2011 remake, tent with Golden Trio and Gringott’s. Don’t think we’re getting Malfoy Manor, especially considering that we didn’t get Ministry Of Magic, both scenes have duels with major character deaths, the later being more iconic. I also highly doubt we will get Xenophilius’s house as casuals will never recognize it. The Wedding is fifty/fifty, considering LEGO likes doing festive stuff for both Astronomy Tower and Clock Tower.  Now that leaves room for about two more sets in comparison to the current lineup, like Privet Drive is a throwback I’m putting money on the Lake Task and maybe Shrieking Shack as well, as it would be around the same price range where a Chamber of Secrets or Philosophers Stone add on would be too pricey with a third one hundred dollar set in the wave.

I could see the troll and Forbidden Corridor scenes combined in one set. Same with the chamber of secrets and the slytherin common room.

I’ll create a Harry Potter 2021 thread on January 1st, 2021. :thumbup:
 

Please keep all HP discussion in this thread until then, regardless of the actual release date/year. 
 

Only one “year” thread open/active, per theme, at a time—thanks!

Just the two short bits on each end removed, as to keep only the section with the bigger tower and the bridge / archway, if that's possible.

It was Goyle, since Crabbe’s actor got arrested for cannabis charges and couldn’t be in the final movies. I suspect Goyle got thrown in to the 2011 Battle of Hogwarts set because the designers suspected he’d be taking over Crabbe’s role, but obviously they had no forewarning that Zabini would be in that scene, so there was no reason to include him. But who knows, he might make it into a set next year.

 I actually could see is getting the Forbidden Corridor next year, since it will be the 20th anniversary of the 1st movie (and by extension the original set). If they’re going to do any “off year” set like Privet Drive next year it should probably be that one, to capitalize on the nostalgia hype that will almost certainly be running rampant.

Very good point. I totally forgot about the 20th Anniversary next year. A re-imagining of the 4706 Forbidden Corridor set with Fluffy would be perfect. Maybe it even comes with a vintage yellow Harry Potter on a little stand like the Star Wars anniversary sets.

Just ordered the RoR and Forbidden Forest from Target, but they sold out of Privet Drive :( However, i got lucky and snagged a pre-order of Privet Drive on Amazon that ships on the 28th. Target order will arrive on Wednesday, so a little distant from Privet Drive, but I like having the certainty of when it ships (compared to waiting for Target to restock or Lego to release it)

A couple days ago, I ordered the Astronomy Tower and the Hedwig sets from Zavvi, while yesterday I ordered the Room of Requirement and Forbidden Forest from Target.  Both orders are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, so I'll be looking forward to that.

Hmm, it's possible.

One dungeon section on the bottom, then a clear room with a fireplace and moving chandelier?

Characters could be: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Lucius, Malfoy and either Narcissa or Bellatrix.

However, Malfoy Manor only appears twice and that's in the last couple of films. Whereas Privet Drive appears in 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7.

Plus I can't imagine the building being very exiting, just a dark grey and black building with not much character. I think it's unlikely we'd get a set.
