    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    The Hogwarts Moments sets are also more geared towards young girls in the style of the Polly Pocket boxes, where you have a container (in this case a book) which transforms into the playset and the accesories are all inside. I highly doubt that you played with those as a boy in the 90s or 2000s. My sister had tons of those

    Lupin is probably part of the summer wave

    Yes it seems to be a customisation set with different legs and torsos. There are pieces to build different scenes like the sorting hat ceremony which you then can reenact with your own character.

    Looks like we're getting an extended Hospital wing. And more books

    I have a complete collection. Only bought the sets in the wave once and 4 Hermione polybags to get the last remaining 4 cards I was missing. The back of the polybag has a see-through window so you can see exactly which card is in it if you tilt it slightly from side to side till the card is visible. Got silver Dumbledore, Salazar Slytherin, Godric Gryffindor and Helga Hufflepuff that way. In the sets I did get some duplicates like 3 Snapes... Why was the polybag a "dud" for you? Do they not sell it in Switzerland? Also I can confirm that all 16 cards are distributed in the polybags. The store I bought these from had a freshly delivered box full of them and while I was searching for the ones I was missing, I saw all 16 characters.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Because of the mispelling of "villains" on the packaging? Hasbro and Marvel had multiple mispellings on official merch. Here are a few of the bigger examples: - Infinity war blu ray had a mispelling of "through" as though on the back of the box https://comicbook.com/marvel/news/avengers-infinity-war-blu-ray-spelling-error-marvel/ - Spiderman Halloween Costume also had an error - Hasbro has had dozens of mistakes on their packaging (even for big licenses like Star Wars or Marvel) Example: They misspelt Skywalker as Skywalkwer on the same box twice https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2019-11-02-hasbro-misspells-luke-skywalker-twice-on-the-tbs6-p3-luke-skywalker-yavin-ceremony-100-figure/ And the guy on twitter from MBDirect, who claims its fake, because he called some Hasbro contacts could also be doing damage control for Hasbro or Target, because they would be in deep trouble if that figure was on the shelfs 4 months too early. Multiple photos existing in different locations and angles, proves at least that it is a physical product and not just a photoshop. Now with a lot of time and resources you could create an almost perfect action figure and print a real looking packaging, but that takes a lot of dedication for a "fake". Just because a word is misspelt is not prove that it is fake. Quite the opposite for Hasbro or Lego in that matter, actually.

    Let's say it sells comparably well as the Ninjago magazine, which also has a monthly issue. Then it is only logical from a business perspective to increase the frequency of releases. Marvel is expanding its franchise whereas DC is shrinking. Just look at the number of minifigs, that they can choose from the Marvel and Spiderman waves right now to include in the magazine and we will get even more at the end of the year with No way home and the Eternals. Jurassic World (the 9th Owen gets boring really fast) and Batman (there were only a handful new DC figs in the sets this and last year and some of them like Batgirl were already in the magazine) can't support a monthly release right now, but Lego Marvel certainly could. The number of sets for Lego Marvel this year (34) exceeds the total number of Ninjago sets (26) and Batman/DC has barely 10 (including the unreleased Batman movie sets)

    The Ninjago Collector is not an official source and due to him being busy with filming Lego Masters the last few weeks he probably made a mistake and didn't check the changed release schedule... I linked the official publisher's website and the date that is stated there. Promobricks is also saying September 23rd by the way (https://www.promobricks.de/lego-avengers-magazin-7/128814/ not that it is actually needed as a source because who would know it better than the publisher of the magazine in the first place).

    At least for Germany, the official Blue Ocean website (which is the company printing and publishing the magazines) says, the next issue with Iron Spider will already be sold starting September 23rd. If you live in Germany, it will already be available starting September 23rd https://www.blue-ocean.de/lego-marvel-avengers/produkt/detail/willkommen-bei-den-avengers

    I think it is far more likely that there won't be a GWP at all

    Nice MOC! Does it still unfold like Bowser Airship to show the interior?

    The "real" thing would be an actual snow owl, not a plushy teddy bear for 200 £. Also just because you don't like it, doesn't mean there won't be a lot of HP fans who will like it. This is a set that appeals to people that don't just want tiny toy doll houses on display and this opens the line and revenue up for another kind of collector
