Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Even if I love to see more HP lego come out, my wallet dosen't. I'm still missing 71043 before I can start for real with the 2020 set..

I'm guessing the expensive one is Gringotts. One castle section and Durmstrang or Hogsmede. I'm hoping we're geting 2 castle section because they are my favourites :laugh: The cheaper ones is harder to guess. But I would love to have a set with a new proper basilisk.

Random question but do you guys think the price of the Hagrid & Buckbeak brickheadz will go up? I haven’t opened mine yet but I’m not sure I want to. 

It depends if the set is coming out for sale later, but I don't think so. I've 2 of these set and going to wait 1-2 years before I'm selling one of them.

Back again with some more breadcrumbs (well.... they're a bit larger than crumbs) from my good friend. Looks like a ''pattern'' will be broken next year :excited:

76386 - $19,99

76387 - $39,99

76388 - $79,99

76389 - $129,99

76390 - $39,99

76391 - $249,99

76392 - $59,99

76393 - $119,99

76394 - $39,99

76395 - $29,99

I said it in my previous ''info dump'' and I'll repeat it here: I trust my source completely and he's proven himself many times before (even if in those cases I couldn't share anything here on EB). But as always, don't immediately take these prices as fact and apply the usual grain of salt :wink:

By now I think we all assume that the bell towers will be the Hogwarts expansion. But seeing that the hogwarts expansion will either be $10 or $20 more expensive. I think there is a good chance that the boathouse and/or courtyard could be included as well. Although the boathouse could be a $20-$30 set by its self.

Going off of this price list, I'm just editing my predictions into @Guyon2002's post, as I'm too lazy to type it all out. Keep in mind that these are in no way based on fact and/or logic, and are but the ramblings of a madman.

I believe that sets 76386-76391 will be part of an early summer Deathly Hallows wave, and 76392-76395 will be a second, late summer/early autumn wave.

This is also going off of the assumption that there won't be any 4+ sets, which, considering how many we're getting next year and how popular this theme is, there very well could be.

Also, RIP me having the financial capacity to 100% collect this line.

76386 - $19,99 - The Forest of Dean (Tent Build, Doe Patronus)

76387 - $39,99 - Hogwarts Wooden Bridge Chase (Massive Exploding Feature)

76388 - $79,99 - Malfoy Manor (Not the most popular choice, but I can't think of anything else from DH for this pricepoint)

76389 - $129,99 - Battle of the Hogwarts Bell Towers (Includes Bell Towers, Boathouse, Courtyard Area)

76390 - $39,99 - Buildable Creature (No idea what, since FB3 will likely be delayed to 2022.)

76391 - $249,99 - Gringotts Wizarding Bank (Bank on 32x32 baseplate to fill width of two-sided Alley, actual structure around ~24x24, also includes cart track setup, vaults, and dragon)

76392 - $59,99 - Hogwarts Forbidden Corridor (It was a tough call between this and the Chamber of Secrets, but next year is the 20th Anniversary of Philosopherceror's Stone, so I think this has the edge. It would essentially be a modernized version of 4706 "Forbidden Corridor" and 4704 "Chamber of the Winged Keys", with a new Fluffy)

76393 - $119,99 - Grimmauld Place (Large Three Story House with sliding shells of other houses, all share #12's interior, 3 stories. I know the fan-favorite among people on this forum is the Durmstrang Ship, but I don't think we'll get that when there are still several other pirate ships and pirate-esque ships on the market.)

76394 - $39,99 - Battle of the Ministry (tri-area open playset, with veil room, atrium, and prophecy hall)

76395 - $29,99 - I'm too tired to think of anything else

Sorry about that

I was thinking the same thing! Although, i was never going to get Hogwarts Castle or Buckbeak. But i was at 100% for the minifig scale. What kind of sucks is that it was actually seeming like it WAS an affordable theme to collect. Im fearing it becoming like Star Wars.

Yeah, it does rather suck, doesn't it? I have every set from 2018 and 2019, including big boi Hogwarts, and I'll have every 2020 set once I get my hands on DA and the rest of the CMF. But, unfortunately it looks like the January wave will be the last that I'll be able to 100%.

@Guyon2002 Salt applied, that's an expensive wave, but I'm totally there for it. I'm thinking $120 / $130 are the castle section and maybe Gringotts and then $250 could be a decent Durmstrang ship. Or do you think the $250 is Gringotts?

I thought Gringotts would be cheaper... so it could be compatible with 75978...

And here I was thinking 2021 was gonna be a small wave compared to this year.:laugh_hard:

$250 set is definitely Gringotts since it probably will be a similar size to WWW and most definitely include the IronBelly dragon.

I’m with you guys. While I appreciate more HP, I rather liked the more affordable waves. I snuck DA in this year, but if what next year looks like continues...I fear it may fall off for me, much like SW. Other themes & sets have already been kicked to the curb in favor of getting all of HP.

Those £100+ Sets are really intriguing! If this is true Lego must be very sure of the adult audience for the theme, which is unsurprising given the series is twenty years old now! 

I can’t help but feel like it’s too soon for Hogsmede considering we just got Diagon Alley though a Prisoner of Azkaban set with another Whomping Willow, the Shrieking Shack, Honeydukes and the Theee Broomsticks would be amazing 

In order of likelihood I think the larger sets could be: 

1: a Diagon Alley expansion 

2: a big Battle of Hogwarts set 

3: a UCS miniature Hogwarts expansion with the Clock and Astronomy Towers 

4 Hogsmede 

5 Just a giant Gringotts Set (no other DA buildings) 

6 Durmstrang ship

Please do take in mind that similar to the Jurassic World setnumbers some of these sets might be based on FB3 and will most likely be delayed, just spitballing here btw.

Cheers for the info Guyon, salt duly applied :) 

Assuming that the seven sets up to 79.99 are DH with one or two missing sets from older films thrown in, the bigger three are interesting. 

Chamber of Secrets, Philosopher's Stone Chambers, Ministry of Magic and Grimmauld Place could all fit into the 100+ price range. Hogsmeade has also been mentioned for the largest set, but what about a 'UCS' Hogwarts minifig scale area?

Very impressive list, I have to say *oh2* If this was the final wave, they‘d go out with a bang (unlike the semi-whimper in 2011), but there‘s no reason to assume that of course. I was quite surprised at first at the amount of sets, but then I realised that next year marks the 20 year anniversary of PS plus the 10th anniversary of DHII. So I wouldn‘t be surprised if the sets were mainly based on these two films (plus DHI ofc).

Very interesting point! Things like Gringotts and Hagrid's Motorbike appear in both those films (well a DH film, anyway) which is nice.

There is a lot of creature possibility in say a Troll in the Dungeon set or the Forbidden Forest (unicorn, Firenze, FANG!, maybe even Norbert),as well as the obvious PS chambers set with Fluffy.

I think he's referring to a normal Hogwarts set (like the Great Hall, Astronomy Tower and Clocktower) but just on a much bigger scale

I don‘t think there‘s an iconic enough section of  the castle missing that would justify a $250 set :shrug_oh_well: Unless it includes the Great Hall, but that one just got off the EOL chopping block again, and I‘d rather get new stuff before they go down the remake route

Yeah, that's exactly what I meant, I was thinking a bigger version of the Great Hall for example. I had no idea it's not being retired anymore though, which sort of suggests that wouldn't be a goer!

It‘s not the only HP set that has been saved from the executioner (Macnair?). I think the only ones still reaching their EOL this year are Rise of Voldy, the Beauxbaton carriage, Quidditch, and the Hungarian Horntail :classic:

@Guyon2002: Is there a specific reason your source allowed you to share the information this time? Are they getting adventurous? :laugh:  *insert „I‘m in danger“ Ralph meme here*

He's not an established leaker so while he wanted to share info himself this thread has a tendency of ''attacking'' leakers with new accounts, not to mention all the crap we've gotten from people like He Who Must Not Be Named and He Who Must Not Be Named II. Untill now he always told me not to share these leaks but it wasn't untill recently when I asked wether I could share them here or not. Given the fact I've been here a while and we assumed people would be quicker to believe me (active user, 5000+ posts) than a newbie account he gave me the go-ahead. The main reason we put this info out there now is the recent ''draught'' in discussion on a thread that has always been incredibly active.

That’s a lot of sets! I agree it is probably 2 separate waves, which would make sense given the variety of price points. Are the four book sets numbered before these? I think a mix mostly of DH and PS sets is most likely as people say

Here are my guesses: 

76386 - $19,99 Hagrid's Motorcycle (7 potters escape) 

76387 - $39,99 Troll in the Bathroom

76388 - $79,99 Durmstrang Ship

76389 - $129,99 Battle of Hogwarts (Bell towers and boat house).

76390 - $39,99 Buildable creature. Nifler? Or a small version of Xenophilius Lovegood’s house 

76391 - $249,99 Gringots Bank & Dragon

 76392 - $59,99 Malfoy Manor

 76393 - $119,99 Forbidden Corridor (PS challenges)

76394 - $39,99 Lake Task 

 76395 - $29,99 Voldermort in the Forbidden Forest (PS, with Firenze)

I expect we will be very surprised with the true reveals, for example there may actually be a ‘Party’ set somewhere in order to prop up the next Advent Calendar

@Guyon2002: That makes a lot of sense. Thank you and your source for providing this information, much appreciated! :sweet:

@Bugbot20082: I like your ideas, but shouldn‘t the AC already be part of the set list, most likely 76394? :laugh: You‘re also bringing up a good point with the Niffler. There‘s no way Hedwig will remain the only creature build in this theme (cf. Star Wars where this has become a yearly or even semi-yearly thing) and a Niffler would be the perfect choice :thumbup:

Oh yes forgot about Hogsmeade. I suppose I thought that would be left for a year or so as we got similar in DA this year. That being said, we could get a Shrieking Shack / Honeydukes / Three Broomsticks combo with the figures based on POA. It would make the 'boring' (but really well printed) Ron and Hermione from this year's CMF make sense; the figure choices usually makes sense when you pair them with the sets released around them. Of course there is also the Chamber of Secrets, but I'm thinking that may be one of the $100 ish sets. 

Well your insta famous now @Guyon2002 😆Although remember, if you have been playing the long game and turn out to be He Who Must Not Be Named 3.0 we have out pitchforks sharpened and ready. 😜

A philosophical argument - are they even leaks if they are not shared? :-)
