Considering that there hasn't been a Hufflepuff anniversary torso yet, and there doesn't seem to be a Hufflepuff student in any of the leaked sets, does this mean that at least one set in the Fall wave will feature it?

OMG imagine if Lego HP had the same quality as that Winnie the Pooh set. *cries into my honey pot*

A fairly small set, using a whole lot of pieces, costing a 100 bucks. Including only the main characters.
The potter theme already has several sets better than it.  not this year so far, no

HP gets plenty of quality sets, though you could argue the $100-range sets could stand to be as good as that.

Justin Finch Fletchley is a hufflepuff and he’s in the CoS set

I have to agree with this, the Winnie the Pooh set looks ridiculously small for a $100, looks about $70 if I’m being quite honest. You’re telling me that is the same price of The Burrow, that’s absolutely absurd. I’ll take the new Great Hall/CoS over it any day of the week.

I had a feeling it might be him, thanks!

Imagine HP getting 5 new moulds in one set, though.

The Great Hall had at least 9 or 10. Some shared with other themes/sets yes, but still.

They were: the wand, Harry's hair, Hermione's hair, Dumbledore's hair, Hagrid's hair, Hagrid's body, Hagrid's right arm, Hagrid's left arm, the square lattice window insert, and I don't recall if the lantern first appeared there or earlier that same year.

EDIT: forgot the small 4x2x3 cone was also new for the Great Hall. +1 https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=38317&in=S

EDIT2: And the Sorting Hat and candle pieces. +3 more

That's 13 or 14 now.

Ideas sets have a very low budget in general and compared to HP, most sets there have never a new mould that is why there is so shocking when one set gets 5 of them :tongue:

Well it already has it... or at least until now

Salty honey, my favourite! :laugh_hard:

I love the Pooh set so much, it very nearly makes up for the set-up-to-be-disappointing August wave :grin: 100$ may seem steep, but the PPR is good and you can’t beat 5 one-off moulds in a single set

Talking of that Winnie the Pooh set, how're people finding the new (since 2018) plant piece that the WtP set has on the tree?

I've got to admit I'm really not a fan of it as tree foliage as it appears in Winnie the Pooh or Medieval Blacksmith. 

I'd like more Forbidden Forest sets in the future of this line and really hope they stick with 4x3 and 6x5 plant leaves for them.

Hagrid's right arm, Hagrid's left arm

This reminded me of Hugh Grant's Prime Minister saying all the things great about Britain in Love Actually :head_back:

I can't help but feel like when people ask for new moulds, they aren't thinking about stuff like arms that are integral to getting the parts they want to see. It's the Headline Moulds that get talked about; people see that there's a brick-built basilisk and don't notice the dozen new parts that they got instead.

Is it really that new? I've been using it plenty for foliage on trees; I stick one on top of each of the big studs of the 4x3 leaves. It makes the tree canopies look a bit less flimsy.

I think it's great, just adds that extra bit of detail so it doesn't look as plain. Although I've definitely seen some MOCs where it's been really overused, if you get that balance just right it greatly enhances the look of your foliage.
