Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sorry to interrupt what is obviously a highly nuanced and intellectual discussion - and sorry for real if this has been covered already and I missed it because COME ON THIS THREAD IS NINETY-TWO PAGES AND WE DON’T EVEN HAVE SET IMAGES YET - but that one leaked Luna figure with the new (awesome) hair and the sleeveless vest, are we sure the standard ‘full-size legs’ are right and not just the leaker putting the wrong legs on her? Because she’s supposed to be in fourth year during Order of the Phoenix, and they established last year with the two Tournament Harry figures and the Yule Ball versions of the Trio that fourth-year Hogwarfs students are represented using mid-size legs. It’d be weirdly inconsistent for Luna to have full size legs at the same age.

It was ninety-one pages when I posted this damnit I’m contributing to the madness . .

I genuinely don't think the designers remembered that she is a year below the main cast and/or just thought that giving her shorter legs than the others would be odd.

Alternatively they just didn't want to do short legs in that set.

Every time I've had the thought "that can't be right, surely the leakers got it wrong" when it wasn't obvious, I've been wrong.

The designers know their stuff, and I bet they had a discussion about it. If you just watch the films, which the sets are primarily based on, you wouldn't even really know Luna was supposed to be a year younger. It makes no difference in the plot. So, to avoid confusion, the designers probably gave all of the students who are peers the same length legs.

Besides, anybody collecting the line and correcting these issues should already have a set of plain black mid legs from Neville in the first CMF :laugh:

Kingnono has given up on hints, he just said "would you be happy with Lucius, Lockart, Rita, Tonks, Ginny and Molly". I assume he means the CMF...but that means there only one missing figure

really doubt that’s the rest of the CMF. I just can’t imagine it not having Ron and Hermione. Some of those characters surely appear in the rumored Burrow and/or Diagon Alley instead.

No, not all cmf. A while ago he said the hints were for both characters and locations, so he was hinting at sets as well.

Oh so there it is, the betrayer is Lockhart and the father is Lucius :grin_wub: Stiiill I know, we should take it with a grain of salt just in case. I’ll take a wild guess and say only Rita and Lucius will be in the CMF. Lockhart could be in the rumoured DA, and Molly, Ginny and tonks in the rumoured Burrow. But literally anything is possible! (Except for rita, sorry rita)

I am already so happy with the 9 minifigures of series 2.

Every new great figure is bonus for me.

Haha it looks like I guessed the betrayer right! :D Anyhow, I really hope that Lockhart is in the CMF because of the price tag on the Diagon Alley... He could have his blue robes in that set and his rose coloured robes in the CMF.

Lockhart doesn't really need much in terms of printing so I'd rather get a different character in the CMF

I don't know how the Minecraft villagers scale to normal figures but if they're the same height it would be pretty cool to get a St. Mungos version of Lockhart in a future set or book

A St. Mungos version would delightful. But yeah, I'm a bit biased since he is one of my favourite characters. Though, he could have a new cornish pixie mould. Does lego use the rose colour anymore btw? It was used in the older Lockhart figure and it looks gorgeous imo.

If Lucius, Lockhart, Rita Skeeter and Tonks are all in the CMF series I'll be very happy as I'd go out of my way to get all those characters apart from maybe Rita. However, if all of them apart from Rita are spread out in sets I'd be a bit less happy as I'm definitely not getting the Burrow because I have the 2010 one. However, if Lucius and Lockhart were to be in Diagon Alley that would suggest to me that both Flourish and Blotts (the book shop) and Borgin and Burkes would be included, which would be fun.

Sand red has been dead for 16 years and I don’t think it’s ever coming back :sceptic:

Well, that's a bummer. Thankfully the old torso looks still great today due to the detailing. I might use that torso and cape with a modern head and hair if we get Lockhart. Unless of course, they manage to make the rose colour variant by using some other good looking colour.

What kind of legs do you guys think they'll use on Professor Sprout? Considering she is a rather short person I'm torn between either small or medium legs, probably medium

A dress piece is also an option, as evidenced by the 2011 version :wink:

I think that they will use a printed dress piece even though she is rather short. I reckon they would use normal legs if they won't use a dress piece. They probably give every adult character normal legs.

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's just gonna be a dress. If not a dress it will be normal sized legs. They've never given a somewhat short adult short or mid legs before.
