Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Thanks again to anyone who gave me advice on finding fred. I finally got him today so that marks the last of the 16.

The new hogwarys game looks amazing and I think they could do plenty of cool things regarding lego sets

I wouldn’t mind it, but only after they’ve done everything else we absolutely need to get out of this theme :devil: I wonder how they would approach some of the characters though if we were to get sets. Maybe I’m wrong, but the trailer gave me the impression that the main character is customisable and that there are divergent story paths based on your decisions. Limits set potential a bit IMO

I agree the customisation seems like a problem but if they even released 4 small sets for the game where the main character in each set looks different (different house torsos/skin tone/gender) then they may be able to pull it off. Similarly to how some Minecraft sets have steve in it and others have alex depending on how the player plays it

The new Hogwarts game looks gorgeous but did you guys notice there's almost no girls in the trailer, especially in the close-ups? Why are they marketing this mostly to boys, Harry Potter is so well-known for being loved by both genders.

Anyone encountered printing issues with the stickers for DA?  Just built WWW last night an when I was applying one of the orange stickers 'MASTER' with txt I noticed a white printed line right across the sticker just under the word in between it and the very thing red line!  Clearly stands out on an orange back ground.  I had to take a scalpel and ruler and cut a tiny thin slice of orange from the leftover sticker sheet (the bit left around the edge of the stickers once removed) and in a medical like operation apply it over the white line across the sticker.  Looks pretty good and you would never know unless someone told you, but I know it is there, and it kinda annoys me given it is a prominent sticker on the best building in a $500 set!!!

While we were waiting for DA , we did landscapes for my daughter’s HP Lego (she is almost 7 y.o) 😄 the display is not very movie accurate but she loves it and it has heightened her play experience. She just finalised building DA, so now we are planning on doing our own version of BB for Knockturn Alley

Love it, my little girl is almost 7 and I could see her loving something like this too, though it seems your time and skill both outweigh mine!

There are a ton of girls visible, they just have their hair tied up. In no way is this game marketed to boys/males only, it's marketed to gamers.

Same. I didn’t bother messing with it though, your fix is a good idea.

It really does work and then you just have to get yourself over the OCD issues of knowing it is there haha.  Have a glass of something strong to steady your nerves...and hand...and give it a go.  Best thing is there are tons of left-over orange strips on the sticker sheet so if you get it wrong, just peel off the little strip you applied and try again and again.  Took me 3 goes to get it perfect.  I am pretty obsessive with my lego stickers in them being perfect, my daughter even some what sarcastically shouts "I need you sticker master" when she is building her own sets because she knows I MUST do it myself for her otherwise I freak out.  1st world problem I know, I will seek help!

I’m only somewhat insane with my sticker putting. Of course I try to get them 100% straight, but if it’s a tiny but wonky, I don’t mind...much. 

Interestingly, I looked at Oky’s & Brickset’s reviews of the set & neither have the white stripe. Off to look at others on social media now...

And you are in Cali I see and me Eastern Canada, so the issue is affecting sets all over the place, though I suppose they all originate in the same place for North America I think.

Mine came from Romeoville IL. I just happen to still have my box, the tape has 26R0 on it...in case you have yours. I checked a few on Instagram just now, no sticker problem. Don’t know locations though.

Sorry, when you say 'tape' what do you mean? On the actual shipping box?

The small pieces of tape that you have to cut when you open the actual LEGO box. For some reason European boxes usually don't have tape but have these pressure points you have to press to open the box damaging the box itself in the process, oh well. Big boxes like for instance Diagon Alley's do have small pieces of tape like in North-America. Apparently on the North-American boxes with tape they print a certain code indicating when it was packaged I think, but I'm not sure.

Hmm..interesting. So ours came from different batches. I looked around a bit more, didn’t see any stickers with the white, or the mention of it(in case they edited it out for the pictures). I guess we just got lucky. :wall:

I just checked mine, and my sticker doesn't have that defect. And for what it's worth, my tape says 33S0.

Well, that’s one. Maybe it’s an NA thing then. Since it seems to not be a particular batch, as myself & Chris have different tale numbers. Weird.

Maybe they will be worth millions in the future like the penny black upside down Victorian postage stamp in England all those years ago....or we just have a bad set haha. One or the other. 50/50. I have looked at it A LOT tonight and have made peace with my sticker overlay fix, but only after convincing myself that the sign on the store got damaged with  Weasley firework and instead of using magic they got a muggle carpenter in to fix the sign with a new bit of wood on top of the old. Justified.

Haha, there we go. Give it a backstory. Another way to look at it...we have a fairly unique set. If only the sticker sheet was unused...

I just had a look at mine, and even though I hadn't noticed it at the time. The Master sticker is the only sticker with a fault on my set too, but it's not quite the same I don't think. There is actually a white line underneath the bottom purple line. I could just cut the bottom of it off, but i'll just leave it. But funny it's the exact same sticker with an issue.

Looks quite good without stickers, though the hanging signs being bare looks bad. I would like to buy prints of those at the very least but it looks like it'll be a while before one of those is available.

EDIT:

You know, a comment on a review of an older set made me realize... we really do have so much for Harry Potter right now, and yet still no Fang!

I recently finished building the Ollivanders/Scribbulus module of Diagon Alley, and am quite impressed with the build.  It really outshines the 2011 Ollivanders build.  This set is going to look quite impressive once I finish it.  

Considering that LEGO seems to be introducing a winter wave for the theme, perhaps a winter 2022 wave could feature some sets for Hogwarts Legacy, while keeping the summer waves centered on the movies.  It'd be a missed opportunity if LEGO didn't do something for the game, plus I would like to see LEGO's take on the Graphorn or Mooncalf.

Of course, I really hope LEGO makes a Fang, and I'm sure he'll appear at some point, though considering he was left out of the Deathly Hallows movies, I don't see him showing up next year unless they include another set based on an earlier movie.  I'd be very surprised if he never gets made by LEGO.

Well there you go, definitely a trend.  I wish mine had been under the line because yes you could just cut it off.  I thought about cutting mine into 3 pieces, removing the bad bit then trying to line it up again but if it went wrong, I would have lost the sticker.  My way with the overlay meant I had many chances to get it right.  Weird how it is that 1 sticker each time...

Thank you very much :classic: don’t know about time - we did as a family thing over 5-6 weeks. 0,5-2 hours at a time. The “grass” is ready made, usually for model trains, and it is really grateful in term of covering stuff :laugh: My husband had fun making the lake using epoxy.

Wait...you have a white strip underneath the small line that is under the word “MASTER?” The white strip on mine is directly abi e the lower black line.
