  1. Here you go. Does anyone remember actually seeing Sir Von Lego mention it anywhere? Or is the person on Reddit just making wild claims? https://www.reddit.com/r/lego/comments/98g6q9/lego_to_make_range_trooper_battle_pack_for_15_in/

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Someone just posted this leak list on Reddit. Can anyone confirm it's validity? We've seen a lot of wishlists passed off as leaks before. Plus I remember there being an interview saying the Chamber of Secrets set had been cancelled. This was the reason for the Basilisk being included in the Great Hall. It seems odd they would then release another set with a Basilisk a few months later.

    It definitely looks like a facade to me. I would think it is more like Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown - 76108 than a modular building. It really would not surprise me if it was nothing at all, and just a MOC someone in the office had worked on being used as something colourful and interesting for the background of the video.

    Considering this version took about 2.5 years of development from the initial idea until release, and the fact it was in production back when the Saturn V was being designed and developed, I wouldn't expect them to then release another similar sized D2C set. Plus the designers have been quite clear in the way they've worded this as being an "ultimate version". They certainly aren't acting like they might need to expand upon it.
  5. I believe the only specifics is that it will likely be the 13th September early VIP release.

    Sorry, I don't have it at hand. But I can tell you that you're in for a lot of cheese slopes. The build is interesting, with some nice references in it. It takes a long time, though.

    I think you're a bit confused. They came out a month early in the US only. Which was due to a deal made between TLG and Target. The UK did not get them any earlier than the rest of Europe. I read an interview with some set designers that they were working on the Chamber of Secrets for this wave, but it didn't work out. This was why they included a basilisk in the Great Hall set instead. I'll see if I can find the interview.

    I really hope this is the case. In the UK it's been a pain to try and get the Bricktober stuff before (at least in my area). Making it a Lego-specific thing will hopefully make it far simpler to do so

    Those Technic connectors are just like the ones in the 1966 Batcave. It holds the 3 main sections of the set together. If Lego intended for there to be an actual extension we would see connection points on the sides or back, which aren't there. I managed to get a pretty good look at the demo one in my local store and there's no logical points to connect anything else. If they did, it would be a completely free-standing set and would (IMO) look bad if you didn't have the first set to go with it.
  10. This is why I think occasional microscale sets would be a good idea. One every couple of years.

    No, they follow the Lego release dates.

    Same thing from Bluewater. Glad to have confirmation from another store, because I was worried about showing up on the 15th to find the person I'd asked hadn't been told yet and that they'd pre-allocated all of the sets already. I wonder why the US stores have implemented it but others haven't. Perhaps it's a trial for future VIP releases.

    It seems a bit entitled to be getting angry at a company for not announcing something. This is a month with a lot of releases. They just had the DB5 and have the Voltron set coming up next week. They don't want to overshadow those releases with another D2C announcement that may cause people to not buy one of those sets.
