I think Flitwick looks very good, no complaints here. These book sets are going to fly off the shelves I think

The 2 figures we've seen so far are great so I hope we're getting more of these in the future. Although I'd prefer future books not to take additional set slots as 2021 is way too expensive for my taste.

I’ll just have to spread out my purchases more this year, but still determined to get them all. Maybe I’ll sell my kids. Any takers?

@Balrogofmorgoth: “Officer, there he is!” :laugh: I knew it would come to this when a Balrog becomes a parent :tongue:

Next year is going to be expensive, that’s for sure. However, that’s still preferable to the way the theme fizzled out in 2011. Good sets, don’t get me wrong, but pretty weak selection for the grande finale to say the least :grin:

Yeah I think the theme is safe for a while. After next year it will be very interesting to see the direction they go in, assuming 2021 covers DH 1&2. I would hope it becomes a free for all with sets from every movie just popping up. It would make the speculation very interesting.

None of the new waves have ever *completely* fallen into a two-film category, have they? There have been outliers every year since the theme restarted. Though, true, the main focus sure seems to be 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 and now probably 7-8. 
 

The new Flitwick is a good attempt. Nice to have that beard in white. It could’ve been better, especially when it comes to the legs. Maybe they could’ve given him a ‘dress’ much like Yule Ball Hermione. Or included a green wizard’s hat. 
 

Still, the whole concept of the classroom books and the fantastic McGonagall figure are very promising! Here’s hoping this version of the theme will get to go on for a while yet.

@Guyon2002 - I know you said that you don't care that much about money, but now Ashnflash got 49K views and you could really ask for a share...

Ashnflash properly gave Guyon2002 credit, which is all he had to do :wink: You don’t have to share money you made on a video or publication based on somebody else’s information, otherwise newspapers, TV stations, news sites, and 99% of youtube would be in huge trouble :laugh:

Appreciate the concern but as I (and others before me) have said before that's not how these things work :classic:

Anyone think there's a chance Flitwick could come with an olive green coat-tails cloth piece? Similar to Red Son in Monkie Kid, or the one in his CMF? Would help with the abrupt ending of his robe print on the torso.

You guys are all very nice about this fig. Lol. Looks nothing like Flitwick to me. Looks more like he wandered off the Hobbit set. :laugh:

Well the actual Flitwick from movies 1 and 2 does look like he is from the Middle Earth

But yeah, that beard doesn't really work, but that's the best they can do without a new mold

 

I guess this would be one of those minifigures that will be updated in an upcoming set or CMF, like McGonagall 2018 vs 2020

Finally found the flitwick figure. If I wasn't told it was flitwick I wouldn't have noticed it. It really could just be a generic LEGO hobbit minifigure.
 

Maybe it's because he isn't wearing his dark green robe which appears in every pic I've seen of PH/COS Flitwick? The minifigure is just wearing the  gold striped waistcoat and light green coat. No robe unfortunately which I think is key his appearance. The grey legs are also throwing me off but I'm not sure those will be on the actual figure since at the bottom of the torso you can see a bit of dark brown under the waistcoat. 
 

It's fine I guess but I don't get the hype.

So I’m deciding on selling my built Diagon Alley for $325. I’m running out of room in my small bedroom, and I just bought Ninjago City and docks and plan to buy more 2021 sets. My thought process is that I have at least a couple years to buy Diagon Alley again, but I will never have a chance to buy these Ninjago sets again.

Has anyone ever sold a set so quickly after buying? Or sold one with plans to buy it again when circumstances are better?

I mean do you really want to pay $475 for Diagon Alley, because if you buy it again this is what you will be doing.  If you are just planning to take the money from Diagon Alley and use it on other sets I think you are better off just keeping what you have and saving for future sets.

I mean I think I got $75 worth of joy from building and showing it off for a couple months. Money is also a bit more tight now with the purchases I made, so $325 would help out a bit. Displaying all my LEGOs will be easier when I am not in a leased house and living with 3 other roommates lol will also how a more stable budget in 1-2 years.

But I’m still undecided. Don’t know what I’m going to do

Why not just keep DA and buy the other sets when you can afford them? You're probably going to be loosing 75 on DA when you have to get it again later (maybe it will decrease in price slightly in a few years but idk). 
 

I would recommend just keeping what you have and buying the other stuff later. If you're really desperate to get the other stuff now then sell sets you actually don't want.

I mean I had to get the two Ninjago City sets now because the value is just going to go up and up as time goes on and the deal was solid. 
 

I just feel so dirty getting rid of my baby I was so hyped for this summer! We’ll see what happens the person may bail on the deal anyway.

I'd buy that in a heartbeat... only if I had the money :sceptic:

In all seriousness... I think someone would buy that without hesitation at that price, if you still have the box and the instructions.

In my personal opinion, I don’t really get it because for 75 more you can get it unopened and new. I’m also a bit OCD though and much prefer to buy my own new set instead of pre-opened or used. It’s crazy how valuable LEGO stays even when used!

It’s not goodbye forever though with DA. Once the expansions and everything come out these next couple years I will be back, hopefully with more room to display :)

If that's the case, then I'd suggest keeping it instead; as good as the build experience is, I don't think it's worth any more than $80...

That applies to every set, at least in my opinion.

In the end it's your decision but this sentence tells me you're not sold on selling it. Only advice I can give is don't sell it unless you're absolutely certain you want/have to

On the lack of space issue, I would break it down and store it as parts instead of selling. Who knows what might happen in two years? They might end up quite scarce and more expensive than they are now.

If your intent is to repurchase this set in the future I don't get why you would even consider selling it at this point unless you were actually making a profit on the deal.  I get that there are other sets you want NOW and space is an issue but I would only consider selling if you really don't ever want to have this set in your collection anymore.  There are always going to be newer, maybe better sets in the future but if you sell now you may end up regretting it down the road.  If your current frame of mind is to buy what you want now to just build once & then sell I think you need to reassess your priorities and not be buying sets you don't intend to keep just because they are new.  I'm trying to really start just buying sets I really want rather than grabbing stuff because there are a few new parts in them that I want or the price is good.  Judging buy the upcoming new HP sets and the total cost I need to stop buying pretty much most of the other sets that mildly interest me.  I even passed on a few that are on my wishlist that I saw yesterday at a discount because they aren't really must haves.
