Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

As we discuss the potential of a few Diagon Alley expansion sets, which I am so excited about, I thought I’d share this Madam Malkin’s / Pottage’s MOC by @jl.bricks that I came across on Instagram. Madam Malkin’s would be a great way to get a few different Slytherin / Hufflepuff / Ravenclaw robes. And Pottages is so iconic to Diagon Alley with that towering stack of cauldrons. Love it.

 

This looks great! Exactly what I was hoping for regarding expansions. To balance each side of the street, I would love one more edit that includes The Owl store and one more building

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.

This sounds like a likely layout. Considering we got Scribbulus though, anything is possible. For selfish reasons, as far as funds go, I’d like to see a smaller DA set this go round. So Gringotts, Leaky Cauldron & Eeylops sounds perfect to me. 

 

How would they market B&B connecting though? Ideally you’d attach it to the Technic pin that is outside Wheezes...but attaching a set that would block half of the adjoining building seems odd. Attaching them fully back to back, sure, that closes off the interiors.

Here's a solution: Just display them separately :P

That would just be boring to me, I would want to connect anything that can connect and/or is meant to be connected

Out of interest how many more years do you think we have left in Harry Potter? 

If LEGO doesn't do any remakes it should be able to go untill 2023/2024

So if 2021 is predominantly Deathly Hallows based and includes a Gringotts and Hogwarts Bell Towers, after that what major scenes do we still have left uncovered? (I'm thinking out loud here with this list, so do add anything I've forgotten.)

 

Forbidden Corridor / Fluffy

Leaky Cauldron / DA entrance

Chamber of Secrets

Shrieking Shack / Hogsmeade

Durmstrang Ship

Lake challenge

12 Grimmauld Place

Department of Mysteries

Inferi Cave (I can't see Lego covering this one at all, but ...)

 

Mix these larger sets in with some smaller sets, such as maybe a Hagrid's Motorbike, Quidditch World cup tent, part of the Triwizard maze etc, and I'd say we could easily have until 2024 like @Guyon2002 says even without remakes, especially if Fantastic Beasts sets take a couple of slots one year.

Not sure about years, but I can think of a number of sets...

in addition to the DA sets, there's Hogsmeade - the three Broomsticks and the Hogshead. (Rosmerta, Aberforth, Portrait of Ariana.) Honeyduke's. Madam Puddifoot's tea room.

Katie Bell and the cursed necklace. HBP

Snape teaching Harry Occlumency. HBP

Ron getting dosed with the love potion, getting cured, getting poisoned and landing in the Infirmary. We've already got two Slughorns, but we could use some furniture for his lounge, the love potion / chocolates, the port Sluggy offers the boys, a Poppy Pomfrey to care for Ron. (We have the Infirmary.) (This would make a decent advent calendar.) HBP

Albus showing Harry Riddle's exploits in the Pensieve... HBP

Scrimgeour and Albus' bequeathals, presenting the Tales of Beedle Bard, the Deluminator and the Snitch to HRH. (All four of those would make decent CMFs.) DH

Maybe the Potters' grave, the Christmas scene with Harry and Hermione. It was touching, but perhaps too much of a downer for Lego DH

Nagina masquerading as Bathilda Bagshot could be interesting, but the cottage would probably be too much. I'd be very curious to see some rendition of that scene, though. Armchair, bed, table, little old lady... Harry spends the next several months with a broken wand thanks to that scene. DH (I could also see both of those as part of an advent calendar, but unfortunately that's probably too dark.)  

The scene where Harry follows Snape's doe to the lake to retrieve the sword, and where Ron returns and fishes him out of the water. (Small set like the one with Sirius and Harry's Patrons. Harry, locket, doe, Ron, water, sword, maybe a rock for the shore. If we're pushing the envelope a little, Snape hiding behind a tree.) DH

The tent. Ron and his Deluminator. Complete with the dread locket of misery, it could stand in for the scenes of Ron leaving or returning. (Tent, cot, Harry, Hermione, Ron, locket.) DH

Flight from the snatchers... Tricky, because how many trees do we really want, or HRHs for that matter? But I'd like to see Scabior at least in a CMF version DH

Malfoy Manor. There was that concept sketch for a smaller set from years ago... Something in that line. I can't see them issuing the torture scene per se, and they've kindly given us two Bellatrixes already  :wink:, but Harry's swollen and unrecognisable face, Draco not identifying him, Narcissa dithering, or Pettigrew's moment of hesitation, recognising his debt to Harry (that leads to his arm killing him...) DH

Gringotts I could see making two sets out of, one the above ground floors, possibly with the dragon, and a second smaller one, maybe about the size of the RoR, Bellatrix's vault. 

Room of Hidden Things. Piles of stuff, Rowena's Diadem, maybe some Fiendfyre... DH

 

Going back to the older books...

Devil's Snare, the Winged Keys, Chessboard, Potions Challenge PS

The Bogart Cabinet PoA

Summer wave for Potter consists of 8 sets and an advent calendar, setnumbers 76386-76395

Got this info from a source of mine who has been incredibly reliable in the past and has given me the go-ahead to share it. But as always I'd recommend taking it with a grain of salt.

Snape treating Albus' arm after he retrieves the Gaunts' ring. HBP / DH flashback 

The Headmaster's office, Albus telling Snape they'll have to sacrifice Harry, Snape sending the doe off, "Always." DH flashback (If they made the sword retrieval scene and the cursed arm scene, we wouldn't need this one separately.)

Some version of Arthur having been attacked in the DoM. Either the attack or the recovery. Maybe St. Mungo's. The Longbottoms, Lockhart... HBP

"Damage packs" to make DA and Hogsmeade look shabbier once the Death Eaters come to power. Wanted posters, broken windows, boards to cover windows. DH

Thanks for sharing! So that's one set more than in 2019 :thumbup: I wonder if they'll split the wave again

What do you mean by ‘summer wave’ contains the advent calendar? I’d that not usually released in autumn?

I think it will go on as long as it is a bestseller :wink:
There is still a lot of scenes that are missing from the films as people are mentioning, but also a lot of characters and it seems that lately e.g. the CMF they are giving us variants instead of a lot of new figs (I assume to save them for future sets). In addition to remakes they can also do things like the Hogwarts D2C, the classrooms/art coming next year and Hedwig etc

Something weird is happening with my bags (hopefully just #6) in my Diagon Alley. I opened all of the #6 bags with the period next to the oval of the six, telling me that's a bag six. But right away i noticed tons of pieces missing, then i skipped ahead pages and realized a lot of pieces missing. I've been looking in the box and not finding any more bags. So upsetting. But then, I found a bag with no period next to the oval, but the bag number and qr code under it (unlike on the 9 bag)....I think this is the other 6...Am I crazy? I guess I just open it and make sure I keep any remaining pieces if I screwed up?!

You're right, I checked but I did copy it down correctly so he must've made a typo :shrug_oh_well:

If the QR code and bag number are under the #, it's bag 6. Here's a link to Brick Builder's speed build of the set. It should start at 8:07, which is immediately before he shows the main bag 6.
