Sounds like you're referring to this edit made by @Micmac:

He's currently rebuilding the entire set, it looks amazing!

I'm pretty sure I saw a MOD that made the Daily Prophet top match up with Florean's on instagram. I'll look up who it was later today, but they're someone who posts a lot of decent HP MODs that have decent editing skills too

Yea it’s @Micmac ! Unfortunately he is going a different direction with his MOC, which is amazing, but different than the initial photoshop. Would love someone to try to recreate this specific edit though!

Yeah I actually never built the set from instructions, I went straight into my moc as I had decided on the new sizes of the shops and what I was going to alter. I might have tried my initial idea if I had built them normally on the baseplate first but I was too excited to do my bigger floor plan idea. I'm not finished QQS yet but this is what the new facade looks like after alterations. By ditching the baseplate I could reduce the width of the building and make the right side more balanced.

In response to the new "leaks" I don't believe them. I have nothing against the guy but I think it just seems like we would have heard about it before then also it mentions that Gringotts would be 26 studs in length making it smaller than QQS I am sorry but I just can't see that happening. Also it says there will be a total of 4 new $100 Diagon alley sets before the end of summer 2021 am I the only one who finds that highly unlikely in the deathly hallows/battle of Hogwarts themed wave? I think Grinngotts is fairly likely next summer but I highly doubt we are getting anything more than 2 new buildings for DA in 2020/2021. That said I would love to be proven wrong but just don't see it happening.

Toy Fair has now offically been delayed to summer 2021, looks like leak season for Potter will be pretty boring next year :distressed:

Bummer. The other two (London & New York) are still scheduled for their usual dates, but even if they aren’t delayed, they‘ll be of little use to us :sceptic: Oh well, at least there are the January sets to tide us over until March, when the minifig leaks for the summer wave should start

Edit: spoke too soon, the NYTF has been cancelled :sad: So only the LTF remains and looking at the situation in the UK, it won‘t be long until that one is cancelled or delayed as well 

The toy fairs have been giving us less info every year now, so it is not so big a deal as it would have been some year ago I would say. However we got a decent amount of info from the German fair last year.. Maybe Lego will do some kind of online presentation for the shops, or they will have to order sets from names and prices only :def_shrug:

Both this year and in 2019 (can't remember what it was like in 2018) nearly all our Potter info came from Toy Fair, the rest were minifigure leaks.

OK, then wonder how long we will have to wait for news the next year *huh* I assume we will get some info before the sets are in shops anyway, we already gotten a detailed description about several January sets so :wink:

This is true, but we didn’t actually get the info from TF until much later due to all the secrecy surrounding it

Are you talking about the previous two years? Because this year, we got a lot of info during the Nuremberg Toy Fair, courtesy of a German youtuber who attended. His information was worded confusingly, but ended up being true 100%. It was on Feb 1st if you want to check for yourselves :wink:

And Luckybricks' Instagram page was also a fantastic source for info, also originating from TF though :def_shrug:

What are the odds of us getting expansions to Diagon Alley, like Gringotts? I keep finding it strange how arguably the most or one of the most iconic buildings was omitted from this set, other than the layout wouldn't quite work out. Are they saving it for the later movies as a standalone set with the dragon?

Almost guaranteed I would say.

I'd say Gringotts is pretty much guaranteed, it's too big to miss out on. But I have to admit I doubt we'll see anything else :def_shrug:

Really hope we also see B&B at some point and I feel like we probably will but I think anything beyond those two are too much to hope for as much as I would love the Leaky Cauldron

We had Gringotts in 2011, so not sure if it will be remade...

We also had Ollivanders in 2011, but they remade that. You never know what will happen.

That rendition of the theme is irrelevant, they’ve remade pretty much everything from that run already

Correct. Though there are still some left out after all...

But I believe it would have been in set 75978...

The 2018-now waves are a reboot, improving on sets from the past is kinda this theme's thing. It's not all of them but quite a lot of sets we got are remakes of older sets

I would say a Gringotts is a safe bet since it never was part of the planning for the DA. I really hope we get other sets from DA, but if the bank is not a add on set (instead is a standalone set in a different scale) I think the chance are a lot lower :def_shrug:

So expansion packs pretty much?

Every set from 2010 and 2011 has been been remade with the exception of gringotts, freeing dobby and the 2 deathly hallows sets (forbidden forest and battle of hogwarts) I dont see most of these not being made next year

True but this wave has changed how hogwarts is released releasing it in parts rather than all together 

Diagon alley can go the same way. I did forget borgin and burkes but the point still stands. Next year will cover deathly hallows sets and the ideal time for sets like Gringotts battle of hogwarts and forbidden forest. Freeing dobby won't be remade and we really can't say about Borgin and Burkes as it could be a wave in 2022 or 23 if the theme continues

I think there are a couple of options for expanding Diagon Alley. Gringotts will have to come at some point, and I think it would work well enough on its own, or it could be in a second DA set. Though there’s a chance that a second DA set *plus* a separate Gringotts is possible. Heck, they might even give us a Knocturn Alley set.

I think a Gringotts & Leaky Cauldron & Eeylops Owl Emporium & Borgin + Burke’s would be a popular set (and I think they are the most likely missing buildings to appear) but can just as easily see that without Gringotts and some other additions instead.

I agree, in my opinion that would complete DA, and those are exactly what I would have picked.  Not sure how likely it is that we’d get the Owl Emporium as a stand alone set but I would love to see it.  
I think Knockturn Alley could be a possibility as well given we saw the sign for it in the set? 
 

Personally I’m hoping for some very detailed common rooms and dorms As standalone sets but to be able to attach to Hogwarts next year.
