  1. I love every single thing about it from the giant building all the way down to the little baby with reindeer print.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    This Diagon Alley set is actually good news even for those who don't like microscale?.Why? Because this set is so small, everything they make microscale appears to fall into the same scale as Hogwarts. Those worrying any large Harry Potter D2C sets would all be microscale hopefully will be comforted by that fact...there are few (if any) things in the HP universe that would even be close to the size of Hogwarts. I really feel like there are two lines... the system scale line and the microscale line, and a release in one doesn't mean no release in the other. We have a microscale Hogwarts, and we have a buildable Hogwarts released over time. We now have a microscale Diagon Alley coming, and I'm sure a system scale one will come in time, too.

    My gut is telling me that Wizarding World will probably be once a year or so, and the annual late summer/early fall date makes sense based on the story. There also will not be a movie next year like there is this year. And this year has a big push due to the anniversary celebrations. Then again, we've seen already how successful the first wave has been, so I could be totally wrong. I kind of hope it's only one wave a year and after next spring, as it's going to take me that long just to get all the first wave! Great Hall was a belated bday present (got money in the spring for that), I sold a bunch of comics to pay for Hogwarts, my family is giving me a couple sets for Christmas, but Hogwarts Express and Quidditch are going to have to wait until my next birthday. So much good stuff! Great time to be both a Harry Potter fan and a LEGO fan!

    Picked up my preorder this morning and completed the first two bags. Could not be happier so far.

    I would have at least considered it too if extra, shame on me. And I'll still get there when the store opens at 10:00 (St Louis area), but I look forward to NOT going in at 7:30 to stand in a line and hope I get one. ;-) Well done, LEGO. I just hope word gets out so everyone can get one who wants one.

    No, it's just part of the 400. So on the actual day you pick it up, you pay the remaining balance and they will give you your castle.

    Just as an FYI, LEGO stores are now taking preorders for Hogwarts. At my LEGO store, you have to put $40 down...they expect to have 50 slots. However, you have to do this in person (but call ahead first to make sure your store is offering the same deal.) Good luck! I am going to the store on my lunch hour today...

    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.

    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.
