Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

Recommended Posts

I dunno about all the guesses for remaining CMF characters ... they seem a bit ‘light’ on other students to me. I’d fully expect a few more of those in the same way we got Cho, Cedric and Lee last time

I mean we are getting Luna and Neville again and they are students. But yeah,  I haven't predicted students mostly because I don't want them :D I hope they are giving us more adults instead of students since the later films are more 'adult'.

It's certainly possible, but whilst I can't say for sure that the Minions sets aren't delayed because of production decrease due to CV, I'm hoping that they have simply been delayed because CV has potentially pushed back the Minions release date from June to a now as yet undetermined date and Lego, or even Universal, now doesn't want to release the sets too early. The Harry Potter sets on the other hand are not tied to a movie release so if that is the issue they shouldn't be affected. Nobody here though has a definite answer I don't think.

The Minion sets are made for a new releasing movie, that has been delayed. So it makes sense to delay the Minion sets as well. 
LEGO should still continue to release sets to keep their bussines up and running. The LEGO Ideas set is releasing the 1 April. So Well I don´t think we should worry, the sets should release as nomal. :)

2 of the sets are still coming out as planned, the rest has been delayed due to the movie itself being delayed. Harry Potter isn't tied to a new movie coming out and if the issue was with factories closing down those last 2 sets would've been delayed as well. So I'm not worried about these sets being delayed, not yet at least.

Thats right i also think its just because of the movie.

HP theme has nothing to do with any movies this year.

FB will start 2021 or worst case 2022.

Minions sets are based on a movie. The movie has been delayed indefinitely, so the sets are also getting delayed indefinitely. It makes sense (but apparently 2 out of 5 sets may still release as planned).

Harry Potter sets are not linked to any upcoming movies. If they will be delayed, it will be beacuse of factories shutting down. But things like, for example, PS5 or XBOX are confirmed to not be delayed, so I don't think the sets will be delayed.

The only thing that worries me is the hint @Falconfan1414 has dropped in an IG story of his because he didn’t specify which sets or themes he’s referring to :sceptic: Anything but HP please :sing:

Ravenclaw: Luna, Myrtle

Hufflepuff: Sprout, Tonks??

Slytherin: Bellatrix, Lucius?, Polyjuice Crabbe&Goyle?

Possible, but so far it do not seem that new Lego sets are affected by the virus situation :shrug_oh_well:

I would have gone with Myrtle too, but the guy said on IG (in response to a question) that ghosts are not included. So maybe Lockhart, Cho, Padma, Flitwick (not that we need another Flitwick) or Xenophilius Lovegood for Ravenclaw.

Only one extra Hufflepuff and Slytherin needed for that to be true - Tonks and Cedric are the major Hufflepuff aside from Sprout, otherwise Zacharias Smith, Hannah Abbot, Ernie MacMillain or Justin Finch-Fletchley are minor students. Susan Bones in Herbology gear is also a possibility, although minor.

There are loads of Slytherins. 

Edit - no Ghosts so one more Ravenclaw - Lockhart, Flitwick, Ollivander, Trelawney, Padma, Cho are the main ones, all but Lockhart and Padma with costume varients. Michael Corner, Marcus Belby and Roger Davies are much more unlikely.

Lockhart was in Ravenclaw also, if I remember correctly...

Ron, Hermione, Rita, Tonks, Lucius, Lockhart, Pomfrey are my (hopeful) predictions based on the "clues". In before getting a yule ball Cho as the second Ravenclaw and another Cedric as the Hufflepuff :D

I would definitely like another Flitwick, I never liked that they swapped his design for the conductor.

Yeah, it’d be nice to get the design they used for the first two films much like how they’ve given us the two version of Dumbledore.

I mean another version of the 'conductor' as you call it. We definitely don't need another version of the character in that form right now.

While I vastly prefer the design they used from PoA onwards, it’d still be cool to see a minifig version of his PS/CoS design :classic: It’s pretty low on my current personal minifig wishlist, but if all the rumours for the upcoming sets hold water, it might be near the top of the list for next year

While I appreciate the work put in and cultural relevance of the post-CoS art style, I have a soft spot for all the original designs.
