Do you mean before or after the first reboot? Some people argue the pre-2010 minifigs were going for a more realistic style, but I think that makes them more cartoonish in an uncanny-valley sort of way :laugh: Just look at poor 2005!Ron, he looks like he’s stoned out of his mind

That and the frog mouths :head_back: In hindsight, I’m surprised they didn’t give them ears and noses as well :tongue:

I think the first yellow ones and the 2010 vere the most realistic. Now especially with the younger harry and ron its definitely cartoonish. Even with other sets for example with the pirates in the new set the captain looks way too happy and friendly hahah. Remember old pirates or adventurers where you would really get some mean faces

Wow... The eyebrow quality control on those Götze heads isn't great. Still a big improvement over the official Krum face.

Is that McGonagall figure with hat/hair legit? If that fig is from one of the books I'm definitely getting that one.

Its the best one they have made 

I really think they should make an update in all of the books for the other ones as well

I really really like the 2010-2011 ones. They used the current style IMO without being too cartoony. From the creepy 2005-2007 ones I like Snape, Harry and Umbridge.

Agree with you for snape umbridge. Yeah I also liked 2010 ones now they dont fit with the new ones and I have figures that have not been released yet with the new wave but cant combine them

I really don’t understand why people don’t like using the Finn hairpiece for Krum. It’s undeniably the closest thing to a buzz cut we have, certainly better than the slicked back style they used to use as a buzz cut. There really isn’t a hair piece that works better for Krum, there just isn’t

Am I the only one that wants a wedding set since it gives us a great opportunity to get Fleur in her beautiful dress. If we do I hope LEGO gives her a new face print and a printed dress piece. 

 

Which dress would you want the figure to use? The slim regular one or that large one they made for the CMF 15 Queen?

I think a wedding set is quite likely actually: it fits the target demographics and ‘dollhouse’ style going on and is the best remaining ‘party’ scene they can base the 2022 Advent Callander on (Luna in her dress an exclusive figure for example?)

The current ones are spectacular, best ones so far, with the exception of the reused ones and a few such as Tonks’.

For anyone in the States looking for the new polybag, I found it at JoAnns Fabrics. I didn’t really want it, but I was rather excited at the surprise of finding it so I grabbed one.:laugh:

Awe man, I wish there were fellow mexicans in here reporting their findings.

I think the queen dress is way too big for that appearance, the regular one would do.

I don't understand it either, this is quite clearly the closest we're ever gonna get!

The piece they used for the CMF Queen is way too large for Fleur, even in her wedding dress. If the only figure of Fleur in her wedding dress we're getting is one with that CMF piece I'd rather not get that figure at all :sceptic:

I went to mine last week because the website said they had them in stock.  All I could find was the Diver with the Stingray.  Took forever  to track down a worker to check stock but she said that everything was out so she guessed they didn't have it.  Claimed everything was out.  I did grab the diver anyway.

Yeah, the one I went to must’ve had just the last few left. I went in looking for the diver polybag & there was a few of the HP one mingled in the basket.

That’s the one, yeah. I suppose it’s not very new anymore...

Not sure if this was ever pointed out but if you look very closely at the leaked pictures of the books from a while back you'll notice 2 (minifigure) books in the Transfiguration and Potions sets. Could definetely be a placeholder but to me it looks like we're getting 2 new 1x2 tiles for those!

Can’t even remember what the ones we already have look like :laugh:. Anyway, looking again at those pictures I noticed Cho’s skin color is still the same, I thought they had changed it to be more accurate when the blurrier ones came out.

Can anyone point me in the direction of those leaked images of the new book sets? I’ve tried all the usual hashtags on Instagram but they must be buried so far down by now that I can’t find them. Any help would be much appreciated.

Looks fantastic and I like that we are getting a few different wizard/witch hats now that can be used for figs in DA etc :wub:
I guess the other books will have a updated nice fig as well. However I would have preferred if they only included figs from the house of the teacher in each book instead of putting the Gryffindors in every set as usual:hmpf:

At least it's not the millionth Harry in each of the book sets, but I would've preferred that too.
