Maybe the reason they’re not giving us any info is because they made some last minute changes of Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands to Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Guns:laugh_hard:

I saw it the other day. This is the best thing ever uploaded to the internet

Quirrell killing himself and Hermione's "Neville I'm really really sorry about this" are pure gold

Neither. The only image we have of Barnabas Cuffe comes from the scene where Slughorn meets Harry in HBP and he’s showing Harry all his framed photos of famous former Slug Club Members. Cuffe, Slughorn says, “always takes my owl, should I wish to register an opinion on the news of the day.” Slughorn also spends quite a bit of time talking about Gwenog Jones, Captain of the Holyhead Harpies. She would be a great minifig to get with QQS and, as a Black woman, she’d bring some diversity to the minifig lineup. We already got some Holyhead Harpies gear in Ginny’s Burrow Bedroom - it would be cool to get a jersey or some robes.

Ahh I see I see, thanks for the clarification. I thought Barnabas was actually seen in diagon alley (be it DP or whatever) so honestly, I see no reason why Aunt Rita shouldn’t be there! 

Amazing news about the calendar being spotted already!

Which buildings (besides WWW) do you all think will have more than one floor?

Technically I think all the shops will have multiple stories, as in multiple rows of windows. Whether any of them (including WWW) have multiple floors that minifigures can stand on is another matter entirely. I honestly don’t think any store but WWW was shown to actually have a staircase the customers could access then second story with - and even that Lego might decide to skip over to save pieces.

They’ll all have multiple floors to be consistent but not all will have content on the second floor.

Man so much has happened this week I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to fully enjoy DA this week :( I really wish we weren’t in the world state we are in currently

Ollivander’s and Flourish & Blott’s both have second floors that are featured in the movies. No clue about QQS or Scribbulus... These puzzle builds could give us a clue though:

I received my Zavvi order for the Astronomy Tower and the Hedwig set two days earlier than expected, so I just finished building both sets.  I do like the detail on the Hedwig model, and the wing flapping feature works great!  It looks a little out of place next to the rest of my Harry Potter sets, but I still enjoy it.  The Astronomy Tower is an amazing set, with the tower being a great centerpiece, the Viaduct Entrance being a solid addition, and the Greenhouse being a neat bonus.  I continue to appreciate each expansion having it's own 'theme' to it, with this one having the Slug Club Party as a backdrop.  It is overall a very nice expansion to the expanding Hogwarts sets that have been made since 2018.  It makes me hopeful for a Battle of Hogwarts-themed expansion set next year.   I am expecting to receive my Target order for the Room of Requirement and the Forbidden Forest on Wednesday, so I'll be looking forwards to that.

Thanks mate, haven‘t had that good of a laugh in quite a while :head_back: The scene with Neville has me in stitches :roflmao:

Btw, why are we still setting ourselves up for disappointment every single day? :tongue: Just relax and let them surprise us... whenever they feel like it

I don't want to sound negative but there is no guarantee that Lego will actually reveal this set this week as it does not come out for another 2 weeks. They could wait till a week before on next Tuesday to reveal it to really build the hype!

They can't build any more hype without posting a teaser or something, as you see this forum is literally exploding with all the hype.

I might be wrong but weren't there articles from Time and similar about the Hogwarts set? I kinda vividly remember discovering about it on a twitter link to those articles.

Perhaps we'll get an official, big style announcement like that as well?

Do we think it will live for preorder on lego shop when it is revealed? This wait is torture.

I've mocked the old Gringotts already to go with the new set and will probably add some of the missing shop. Can't find purple windows for Madam Malkins shop which is annoying, I can get lavender doors though so that's a start.

You can get the knight bus, it's not that expensive and it has lots of windows!

The window is curved so its like Olivanders shop window. The bus window is too big.

I am quite good friends with him and he seems to get his stuff from legit sources but with anyone not everything turns out to be true

Sounds like you both should take a beginners course in source criticism to me :tongue:

Florean is quite obscure, but if we are getting figures of people such as Barnabus Cuffe or the photographer then I hope it's a sign that the minifigure count might exceed our expectations. :excited:

I hope 18 minimum. The inclusion of these obscure characters is worrying me (they might only be like 3 I know) accurate and all but I don’t care much for them.

My money’s on Ginny being in there too, potentially the Weasley patents as well. 
 

Personally, I’m a bit so-so on the theory of getting Rita Skeeter in Diagon Alley. On one hand, she never appeared there in the books or movies, the only reason people are putting her out there as a possibility is to have someone linked with the Daily Prophet offices in the set (which the photographer from the F&B book signing would count as). On the other hand, Rita has a very fun and colorful character design and doesn’t need any new molds, plus her quick quotes quill would be the perfect excuse to do that mold in new colors for Scribbulus. 
 

Not sure if we’ll get any ‘generic’ wizards either. They’re giving us Fortescue after all, who’s super obscure but still a specific character who’s important to one of the included shops. It wouldn’t surprise me if we got other characters like that, who could be called background characters but actually have specific identities that make them significant to the setting. 

I think the set will include all the normal known figs that are necessary to recreate the scenes from the movies (like Lockhart, Hagrid etc), then the rest of the spots will be used on obscure characters with a connection to DA (like Fortescue and other people seen 2 sec in the movies etc). Rita on the other hand they will save for later. Just look at the CMF there are maybe 5 figs there that we do not have and that we MIGHT not get in future sets. Why should they give us a lot of exclusive characters in the DA that Lego could have saved for later? My guess is that most of the exclusive figs will be from characters we never would get in another set :wink:

I bet that the reveal most likely is today, if not then another day this week. If that is not the case I think I give up trying to predict it, at least the chance increase a lot every day now :shrug_oh_well:

You can’t build hype if no one knows the thing exists in the first place

we are an extremely small subset of fans that pay attention to leaks and future Lego sets

Especially when it's such an expensive set, I would argue that they'd want to unveil the set 1-2 weeks at latest prior to release so that people can set aside funds for the set.

Thanks! :) I agree, or at least a teaser (if it is not teased today). Hopefully anytime now!

So lego posted on their social media today. So it seems like nothing new today. NOT EVEN A TEASER. I guess the reveal is coming next week.
