thanks a lot for the picture.

those arent dark grey right?(like the ones from the modulars

They are dark stone gray. They just appear lighter in the picture. They're the same color as the base plate 

(Scribbulus is light gray for reference)

I swapped out the head for the one from the Mario Gotze (German soccer player) minifig. It’s perfect. I haven’t found an alternative for the hair though. He has a buzz cut in the movies but they gave him an Afro piece. I’d love to hear any suggestions for alternatives.

That works quite well to be honest, might be best just to leave him bald the afro just looks a bit weird in my opinion.

ok , so im gonna try to explain what im going to ask,

anyone with the diagon alley set please help me out. im going to buy the set but was thinking of building it in 4 32x32 plates and adding dark grey titles on the front to make space for all the HP Minifigs (series 1 & 2 and others ones) 

do you think it would look good?

I assume you mean build it as is & have 16x32 of display space in front. That’s a pretty cool idea. I think it’ll look really good.  It’s like the ultimate backdrop.

Ah, of course, the day after I buy something from Argos with next day delivery, and the day I buy them for less discount somewhere else! :iamded_lol:

Thanks for the heads up, might get a cheeky second of RoR.

I am building a new display cabinet for Lego and the plan is to have most of the HP sets among other things there.. Can anyone that have all the Hogwarts sets combined tell me how much space they take? Is it possible to make them more compact than the individual sets or is it basically just to add up the length of the individual sets and add them together?

My castle is modified but it has a width of about 110cm and the entire display (which includes Hagrid's Hut and the Forbidden Forest etc) is 150cm. Depth is somewhere around ~42cm

I have that book. It’s quite fun in terms of behind the scenes. Also when I went to Universal Studios I took way too many photos to build Diagon Alley. Unfortunately life got in the way and I never did and now Lego went ahead and did a bang up job without me. Oh well. 
 

and look at that building next to Ollivanders in the picture...it has a nice pink color 😉

the actual issue is the scale/detail level.  im exploring some option of using more and smaller windows.  more similar to scirbbulus.

Thanks :classic: Unsure if I can fit both the D2C and the system-scale Hogwarts on one shelf then :sceptic:

I have not got the DA yet, but what I can see on pictures is that the problem with QQS is that is too big and the DP too small. QQS could probably managed with only the first floor and fit everything in there if the built cloths had been skipped. A staircase could have been added and the DP could have been in the second floor and the loft removed. Then I assume the pink part would be smaller and not something people would have a problem with. However then the building would not fit back to back with WWW so I understand that a compromise would have to be made so the QQS was made bigger and WWW smaller to fit each other :shrug_oh_well:

The rest of the street consist of similar sized buildings except Gringotts, so this should be no problem in future sets since I assume that the bank will be a made to fit in the end of the street or something similar to last time with the open and closed option to fit the different layouts of DA..

Just a heads-up: a new fake leaker has decided to haunt IG, posting incredibly stupid lists for many themes, including a HP set (CoS). Right now, it’s just them, but beware of the regurgitators who will surely uncritically repost that nonsense once they catch wind of it :laugh_hard:

Noticed this too. That's definitely what inspired the color used for it in the set :classic:

I don't know about other countries but Crimes of Grindelwald is now on Netflix here in the Netherlands

Haven't rewatched it since seeing it in theaters and being very disappointed. Maybe it's time to give it a second try?

Personally I think it gets better every time I see it (probably seen it 2-3 times by now) :wink:

The user is crikital.hit. All of their „rumours“ are hilariously fake :laugh_hard: To my surprise, none of the reposters have picked them up yet. Maybe they‘re too obvious, even for them :tongue:

I agree, it does get better with multiple viewings. It‘s still needlessly convoluted, but the story flows a bit better

Definetely do so if you've got the time. I did like the movie when I saw it for the first time but not enough to want to rewatch it so today was only my second time watching it. It's definetely much better than I remember, still needlessly flawed but that doesn't make it less fun :shrug_oh_well:
