    Hi everybody, I'm John, 31 years old (2015), I live in Lille, north of France.

    I had my first Lego at 5 years old, I tried some themes and get stuck on Castle Theme when I was 9, Majisto was the first with his little shop (obviously named Merlin when I was 9) and a minifigs box with 3 Dragon Knights and one Wolfpack Renegade guy. The wolf guy and Majisto was good guys.
    Then at 11, I had in about 2 years the entire collection of the Lion Royal Knights, so my medieval story began :-)

    About 4 years ago, I finaly had the Dragon Knight Castle I so wanted when I was 11 so finally there was the good Lion guys on the hand, and the bad Dragon guys on the other hand.
    So, I completed my originals sets with other different themes sets or minifigs you can create in Lego Store (queen, prince, princess, maids, witch, castle intendant...), and minifigs from the series (mermaids, centaur, ogre, witch, female bohemian, forest female, leprechaun, genie, scarecrow, fairy etc.. etc.. now I have a good collection CMF).

    Later I realize Merlin couldn't live at Lion castle, with his family&friends, too many people in the Royal castle, it's not so I customed him a real lair combining 4729 Dumbledore's Office and 4867 Hogwarts. With that, all the magic family has a real place.

    Ditto with the bad guys, so many characters and stories now, there wasn't so place in the two big Dragon Knights sets, so I turned 6097 Night Lord's Castle into the Dark Castle with sorcerers, vampires, demons, witches, subordinates etc...

    Now I'm 31 and still add some characters and sets in this medieval story, changed since 3 years ago as a "Medieval Fantasy Story" with spatiotemporal flaws [allows me the include Castle + pirates (collection when I was 9 + new) + City (cmf, costumed guys, TBBT, Space..) + LOTR/The Hobbit + Harry Potter + Pirates of the Caribbean + Elves + Star Wars + Super Heroes + BTTF + Scooby Doo + Santa Claus + Indiana Jones + Ninjago + Simpsons + Ghostbusters + Egypt + Female Scientists + Disney Princess + Friends + The Lone Ranger + The LEGO Movie + Scorpion Creator or just Creator + dinosaurs + ... ]

    So I kept the storyline I had when I was kid [I was also playing with the other themes I had (pirates, town, aqua-thing...), Merlin has had some issues with magic and brought some people of other worlds and other time.]
    Now, the spatiotemporal flaws have different origins, and the story is much more sophisticated. Finally all is about family, friendship, maybe love but included in family, friendship, relationships, noble-mindedness...

    Soon, I'm gonna take in shop the Doctor Who set to add him in the Medieval Fantasy Story, more for the set, less for the characters except that wonderful angel :) That's all folks :)

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've been surprised by brickbuild Fawkes in the Great Hall, do you think it could be a new Fawkes mould in the D2C ? The FB set 1 was the very first set of the line discovered, while we still don't have official images for FB set 2 and Aragog, that new calendar seems logical.

    Wasn't the same with Disney CMF in 2016 ? If I remember well, we've had the list and photos only one month before the release

    About LEGO and the Back to the Future License

    I just finished the Indiana Jones trilogy (video game), few weeks ago it was the 2 triologies Star Wars and now I'm on the Batman game. I still don't have played Harry Potter and Jurassic Park/World but a I would love a new game with the BTTF trilogy plus a 5 sets wave (like Scooby Doo).

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thank you, I should have thought about this specific reason (before / after Christmas) but I didn't know that was variable. Since 2013 (for the far I know) in France, it used to be Jan/May/Sept which was exactly 4 months between each series. About the WW CMF, I know there is a lot of eventual Minifigures, a large choice, people are speculating about their own favorite characters, and when I see those complaints about the Minifigs in the sets, I can guess some people will still be disappointed. But I was wondering, don't you think that there are 22 Minifigs this time, it is because there are gonna have maybe 2 or 3 versions of Harry Potter ?

    Does anyone has an idea about the reason the CMF calendar changed ? April for Series 18, now August for Wizarding world. We had January/May/September and now December/april/August, that's it ?

    I tried but I failed with the URL, try "lego leaks instagram aragog" on Google Image, it still the third image from here.

    Guess the next animal mould round 3

    I'd like to see and to get a beautiful wolf. As a recolored one, I still would love a new cobra (from CMF) in dark red and black.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well, weird... Few hours ago, I've seen 2 image of Bellatrix (on first 3 pages), now there is just one (the one with CMF WW Bag). Plus, the unique image of Lily and James I've seen was on the 3 first pages, and now I can't find it even with 20 pages. Is this CMF WW Bag fake too ? (If Bellatrix is a fanmade with potential new slope but still not official) Digital, that's the word, not 'numerised', sorry I'm French

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    To all of you, I was searching about the minifigs you were talking about, so with 'LEGO harry potter 2018' on Google Image, I've seen a new Bellatrix minifig and I knew it was new because of the new wand (and knew it was HP and not GoT because of hair and suit) so I was just asking you about this special minifig with new wand, then there was an image of Lily and James and I didn't remember have seen these 2 ones so I plused it with the "new" Bellatrix. From your returns, is this Bellatrix with this wand is a minifig from the WW CMF ? Not physical but numerised (like they do with CMF moving in their life), but she had the new slope that we can see in 75951, that made me think this is new and possibly CMF..?

    I don't find the minifigures you're talking about on the Internet, but I just saw Bellatrix, James and Lily, is this real about these 3 ones ? Thank you :)

    Why dead crow ? I've always thought that the crow was actually alive as a companion for the scarecrow.

    The Greatest CMF 2 (Revenge of the Ninjago) THANKS AND GOODBYE!

    Wow, this one was hardly tough because all of these belong to my Medieval Fantasy Story. The King is the main king between 5 other, the Lady Liberty is one of the living statues in the Lion Castle, the Battle Goddess is the chief of the Amazones in the Freelancer Knights Crew, the Spartan Warrior & Hun Warrior are in the Freelancer Knights Crew, Aztec Warrior & Tribal woman are in the same group escaping the pirates, the Evil Knight in the Dark Castle, the Yeti is with the Ice Queen, N-Pop Girl is a fairy, the Pretzel Girl is a waitress in the village inn and Grandma Visitor in the village.
  15. Yes I remember this story, it began with rumor discussion about carrot costume in I-don't-remember which series, then a guy in the discussion made the custom carrot guy and post the photo in here to show us the look of the minifigurine if the rumor was true. But it wasn't. It was about one or two years ago
