    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    The Great Hall won't be substantially different in size to the Simpon's House and work well enough as a background to a Minifig display.

    Further down, beyond the Minecraft sets.

    Actually, there is a perfectly good reason. Chinese companies have started producing knock-offs faster and faster. Lego don't want them getting them out before the official release. They're even more careful when it comes to licensed sets.

    No, but I also haven't spent much time on here since about November (when the Diner modular was announced). People can want things but not talk about them.

    Me. Personally I'm quite happy at the smaller scale model.

    A lot of you are saying you're not interested any more. Out of curiosity, why are you against the idea of the micro-scale Hogwarts?

    A lot of people are complaining, but I am sure a lot of people are also happy. Personally, a nano-scale Hogwarts would make a much nicer display piece. As for the UCS / Not-UCS argument. Technically UCS only refers to Star Wars sets, but that doesn't mean the Helicarrier isn't the equivalent of UCS for the Marvel license.

    James Bond 2018

    Let's not forget that we're all expecting this to be based on Goldfinger. The style of the Bond films has changed drastically since the 1960s. I would not expect a modern Bond film to be "suitable" for a Lego set or theme, but the early Bond films are much "goofier" in style, and nowhere near as violent. I'd consider Lord of the Rings to be much darker and violent than what was classed as an action film back in the 60s. The DB5 is also far less of a weapon than the Tumbler was. Tbh, I've been hoping for Lego to get the Aston Martin license for years, and I have checked the Speed Champions line up each year to see if there is an Aston. If this is how we finally get one, I'm happy.

    James Bond 2018

    The Creator Expert sets have a recommended age of 16+. The Bond films are typically rated as 12 or 12A. A number of the older films (including Goldfinger, which is where a lot of us are suspecting the set is from) are rated PG. Other sets have fallen into the same age ratings. For example, The Big Bang Theory is rated 12 in the UK.

    That's a catalogue image.

    Why? It looks nothing like the prelims we normally see. It looks finished.

    Pretty sure at this point.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That really doesn't mean anything. They reject a lot of ideas. As for a lack of "confidential", this is likely a Lego catalogue due out in December/January. "Confidential" stamps are typically on pre-release materials and mockups. They often know things in advance. They may well have copies of the catalogue for December/January in stores already. If the information has leaked and they know they're announcing soon then they have nothing to lose. My local store often confirms unannounced things for me (often small things, like whether the UK is getting the same promotional items as the US etc).

    "The image is already out and a lot of people have saved it" has never stopped companies from having pictures taken down before. We'd all seen the pictures of the new Death Star but it was still taken down. I'm looking forward to seeing the details of the interior.
