Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

If @Guyon2002’s price list is accurate, maybe I shouldn’t be disappointed that the latest Ideas results was naff... sounds like they’re continuing to go all out with this theme. Also sounds like there’s too many sets there to just be Deathly Hallows plus FB3 - so hopefully they’re really going back and filling in the gaps.

I’ve got Clock Tower and Beauxbaton’s Carriage left of the 2018/19 HP sets (excluding Hogwarts), and Room of Requirement, Hedwig, the Burrow, Diagon Alley and the Advent Calendar of 2020 still to get. But I think even if next year is more expensive, it’ll be much less than what I’ve spent in total over the last 9 months!

(I haven’t spoken on here for a while. I am currently building the Treehouse, which I finally caved and bought, and am totally loving all the details! I also think it’d make a better Whomping Willow than the existing one

Hi,

Is Draco the minifigure that comes with the MBOM GWP? Sorry, limited eyesight!

Yes it's Draco. :)

Even though there’s nothing exclusive about Draco, it’s still an interesting minifig: Year1+2 hair, year3+4 legs, and year6 face :laugh: And it’s only the second set without Harry

If they were they would've leaked alongside the 4 books. It's definetely the main summer wave (and probably an extra autumn wave as well) 

Sweet thanks for clarifying and thanks for the leak! Was worried for a moment that my wallet would have to endure a second wave as this one is a monster.

It's a pretty large thing so I expect it to be $100, same as the Hagrid & Buckbeak Brickheadz

So what do you guys think that this 249 USD set will be?  My guess is Diagon Alley part, with Gringotts :)

“They will definitely want to sell Gringotts separately so more people can afford it who don’t want to buy Diagon Alley”

Sells for $250 :laugh:

Bigger the better for me, and I’m totally happy that we’ll get a deserving Gringotts, but sucks for the people who wanted something affordable

Honestly, I am so excited for that set. Diagon Alley as it stands now doesn’t feel quite there yet in my opinion. It definitely needs a bit more to display better.

If it's £100 to get MBOM then I still need the Burrow and either an extra student pack or extra RoR. Great! I should be fine as long as what I want is in stock ... and stocks of the GWP hold until payday ten days after launch :cry_sad:

 

What will be will be I suppose

Yeah I’m hoping it isn’t just DA and that maybe a Borgin and Burkes or Leaky Cauldron is in there as well. $250 is more than half of DA, and while Gringotts is one of the bigger buildings, it shouldn’t be more than half of DA big. Personally as is rn, DA is in my top 5 favorite sets but with Gringott’s can definitely knock the Ewok Village from first.

I am curious, if they add there Borkin and Burkes, how it will be connected to the set, especially to hat "Knockturn Alley" archway part, since all of DA buildings are opened from backside. Fingers crossed for Leaky Cauldron and Big and complete Gringotts with White Dragon (hopefully moulded and not brickbuild).

I honestly think people are looking too much into the Knockturn Alley expansion. It wouldn’t make sense for the display, and the sign that’s part of the DA set is probably just a nod to the street with no expectation of adding to it.

For $250 do you think the Gringotts could include one or two extra shops? Perhaps Madam Malkin’s and Eeylops?

I still think/hope Gringotts is the $130 set and the $250 one is a D2C Hogsmeade with the Three Broomsticks, Honeydukes, Zonko's and the Hog's Head

I just hope one of these is in fact Gringotts -- I'm thinking of selling my 10217 but it would be a shame to get rid of it and have no replacement.

The designers for DA said that Gringotts was never considered for the set, the most iconic building in the alley? Never considered? That's pretty much confirmation that it was already planned as it's own thing :wink:

This also implies there‘s a reason they never considered it in the first place, and personally I think it‘s a fiery one, if you catch my drift :laugh:
