    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    No backorder message for me so fingers crossed. Happy hunting to all on both sides of the water.

    I got the two sets I wanted through US site... hall and willow. Those two disappeared first within ten minutes. Quidditch lasted about 25 minutes. But they were indeed available until sellout.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So...in the past has anyone had success ordering a whole box? If so, where do you get them from? LEGO store told me they don't sell them by the box, and I have two friends who want to split a box with me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as I'm buying far more in this assortment than any other.

    I am a Children's Librarian in Missouri. Harry Potter is rarely on the shelf even though we have tons of copies of each book throughout our system. Whenever we have Harry Potter programs, we have full programs with waiting lists, and any cosplay programs regularly include characters from Harry Potter. Kids, teenagers, adults...we get them all. Even when no book or movie is coming out, we have not seen any kind of slow-down in interest for Harry Potter.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm kind of wondering if the idea that the D2C is Hogwarts is not so accurate...that instead we're getting several assortments which will result in a large Hogwarts, and the D2C is actually something else...maybe if Harry Potter themed, it's actually a Hogwarts Express with track and electronic components.

    The Disney Castle, which cost $350, actually repeated several of the minifigures from the Collectible Minifig line that immediately preceded it. Donald and Daisy were exactly the same as the ones from the CMF series, Minnie was a repaint, and Mickey had a different outfit. The only completely exclusive character was Tinkerbell. I could see, if indeed such a large Hogwarts to cost $500 is being produced, that it will be light on minifigs. Maybe Harry, Moaning Myrtle, and the 4 House ghosts from the CMF line plus some kind of exclusive figure?

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Yep...this is one of the first Marvel sets where the build seems even more exciting than the minifigs!

    Thanks. I know you have answered numerous questions about the Sanctum already, so I apologize but wanted to ask one more. The Sanctcum building that is similar to the tower...is the set just one building that contains Peter's apartment as one of the levels, the pizza place as one of the levels, etc., or is there a separate building...so the Sanctum building but also a smaller structure that has Peter's apt and the pizza place. Thanks!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I kind of wonder if this info is PARTIALLY true. Aragog and the Whomping Willow with Ford Anglia could easily be one set. Both those scenes only revolve around Harry and Ron, both those scenes involve the Ford Anglia... So maybe there are 3 sets, but we actually don't know one of them yet. Great Hall, Whomping Willow/Anglia/Aragog set, and... I'm pretty excited about the Great Hall if true, and that suitcase sounds like a lot of fun. Hoping we get a lot more info at the Nuremberg Toy Fair starting on January 31st.

    Lego 60th Anniversary sets 2018

    I did! I can't tell what the first of the four builds is...followed by yellow castle, pirate ship, and space. Also, it says purchase free with $125, but it also says $25 value. Does this mean we can buy the set for $25???

    i kind of wonder if the rooms are a clue to who we may see in a second series. Belle, Aurora, Robin Hood, etc.
  14. Bless you, CM4Sci. You've never steered me wrong before, so I appreciate this. I was hoping that merchandising news for this movie is just a little too early.and you said HARRY POTTER...ahhhhh!!!! My entire toy budget for this year depends on what's coming with JK Rowling's Wizarding World in LEGO form. Lol. Any idea when we might hear something official?

    Nexo Knights 2016

    Trying not to envision this too much as He-Man, as I'm a big fan of that series. I don't want to get TOO excited before I see the pics. :-) I believe I read a while back that a mobile fortress might be involved, which could be pretty cool.
