These new classroom sets are really cool! The question is should you display them closed or open? :grin:

I wasn't going to be getting these unless the new minifigures made them worth it, so I was thinking I may need to pick up Hufflepuff and Gryffindor (if McGonagall has a skirt piece). But now I'm thinking I'm going to want to get all four to display closed. :facepalm:

Honestly not sure what to think of these sets. The books themselves don't interest me, the classrooms look pretty neat but if the older descriptions are accurate most of the detailed bits are stickers and the figures are pretty meh all around (even Flitwick) :def_shrug: Might pick some of them up but I definetely wouldn't feel bad if I'd skip all of them.

Snape does look like he glows in the dark :laugh:

 

No new hairpiece for Flitwick is kind of a bummer

I will probably pick up all 4 sets. I will take out some of the classroom pieces and throw them into my Hogwarts classrooms. I will probably keep the rest together so i can keep the books together, cuz they are pretty interesting. As to the characters, I will just switch the heads and bodies  around just like I always do with my extras.

Can anyone make out McGonagal? I don’t see her anywhere! I’m hoping she comes with the dress piece.

She's at the back of the Gryffindor book, but there's a big glare over the part of the page she's on, so I can't make out any details aside from a general green smudge. Even if I could, it wouldn't make much of a difference, as these images are very much not final (Flitwick has no printing, and Sprout is using Helga Hufflepuff's torso).

Cho looks like she has a more accurate skin tone, good.

I highly doubt that's Cho. If they were planning on giving her a more accurate skincolor they would've already updated the Advent Calendar and Accessory Pack figures

These are still not complete official pictures so the reuse of torsos could change in the final version these may just be placeholders.

These all look fantastic. I was almost certainly going to get them all anyway, but they look so much better than I'd expected, both looking like a modern high-detail set and capturing the nostalgic look of those 2001 classics. Truly magical. Only issue might be the minifigs, since the majority look uninteresting, but again, these are unfinished preliminaries (Flitwick has no printing, Sprout has Helga Hufflepuff's torse), so that could change.

What excites me the most is the fact that these look like something completely different from what we’ve gotten so far. Minifigure-wise I can't say much because they are preliminary images 🤷🏻‍♂️

Who could that be then? If it is Cho, then I’m glad she’s finally accurate. I don’t care about consistency when there’s improvement.

it looks like Draco is using the dog show trainer... strange, although it could be either the bad quality or a placeholder considering things like Flitwick and Sprouts torso.

 

So far I am in love with these!! It will be hard too chose between displaying them open or closed, but closed might be the better option considering 9 more sets are coming....

These look great. I just hope the flitwick beard is temporary. The hobbit line has some more accurate beards if recoloured or a new piece would be even better. Although I'm just glad we'll get this version. That said the builds look so big. Very detailed. This is a beautiful display piece. I was planning on changing them and using it in the hogwarts sections but on second thought that would never look as good as they do now. Can't wait to see better pictures.

Those look a lot better than I expected! Looking forward to better pictures. Had there been just a single truly new minifig in each of them I would be very interested, still somewhat on the fence.

It looks like they're including at least one Gryffindor student with each of the sets, which is a shame. I was looking forward to finally getting some uniforms from other houses. And I absolutely don't need four Chos in this series. As far as Ravenclaws go, Luna was a much more central character and we've only had four of her. And aside from the Quidditch set, we haven't had any Slytherins but Draco, and those were both upper classmen. There were so many to choose from, but we're getting Seamus instead?

Send you a PM. I know you can't respond, because of your postcount.

Wouldn't be the first time they've got a preliminary figure wrong, we'll see when the set is revealed
