    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think @Falconfan1414 is saying is that a more perfect representation of Fred and George in the CMF would detract from the likelihood of getting one in the Diagon Alley set. But since the Fred and George versions are obscure for CMF, then that points to getting a more traditional take on the dynamic duo in the Diagon Alley.

    I really, really am getting tempted by the Minalima book! Like you, I have the Jim Kay editions, which are wonderful. Jim Kay has been suffering from depression, and I don't know for sure when Order of the Phoenix will come out. As of Febraury, he had barely completed any work on it. https://www.therowlinglibrary.com/2020/02/06/artist-jim-kay-revealed-he-suffers-from-depression-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix-launch-may-be-delayed/. I love displaying the books next to the sets! I also totally agree on how wonderful Gathering of Bag End is...still one of my top ten sets.

    Yeah, the Bookshop and the Burrow have definitely been my two most anticipated sets in a long time. I waited two months until March to get the Bookshop...but I plan to get the Burrow the minute it's actually available.

    Nope, it simply says "Pre-order this item today." No date listed.

    The U.S. sets (only the Burrow and Hedwig) are now available to purchase as pre-order on LEGO's shop page???

    Agreed! The actual sets have a lot with them for the price. My favorites are the Fortress and the Bullet Bill Barrage.

    Thank you for clearing this all up, Falconfan. Nice to have confirmation, correct number.

    Yep, I'm waiting for Falconfan's countdown myself...maybe it has to do with US Dates?

    The microscale Hogwarts came out on September 1st, with a preorder release date for VIPs on August 15th. That was really cool, as Hogwarts start of term is September 1st. Likewise, Harry first went to Diagon Alley on July 31st, so I could very easily see August 1st (a Saturday this year) or right around there being the official release date, with mid July for VIP release. Sadly, while I did get Hogwarts by selling some things, Diagon Alley is going to be beyond my financial means for at least a while if not permanently. My plan is to buy the Burrow, some collectible minifigs, and the Advent Calendar when they come out, and then ask for the Astronomy Tower and the Room of Requirement from my wife and parents for Christmas.

    I'm...not going to take that bet.

    We'll get there, guys! I think we're all anxious to see things. and half us of are probably refreshing Instagram a little too often (myself included)! I'm just grateful that leaks are coming relatively soon!

    Except the 1000 piece set likely is without the key Mario component, which is the bulk of the price for the 231-piece starter set.
