    My purist versions of Uncle Vernon and Aunt Petunia: Petunia uses the face of Edna Mode from the 2nd Disney CMF Harry and Ginny before Quidditch tryouts (added the dual-moulded legs to the old torsos): And finally Young Dumbledore and Grindelwald:

    I don't usually like to cut Lego as well and I am all for purist customization. But the diameter of the snake fits perfectly in the bar stud and I just don't see any other way to recreate the snake wand/staff of Lucius right now. If you have a better idea, please share. Maybe they will release his staff in the next Harry Potter Cmf series, but until then this is the solution I'm content with.

    My modified Lucius Malfoy minifig: I also made a mod for the horns on the new hungarian horntail:
  8. The head seems real - printing corresponds with the usual lego quality (thickness etc.). I think they changed/adjusted their production process with the Lego Movie 2 cmf series and are propably continuing with this series. Some pieces aren't made in the chinese factory anymore. Clues are the visible torso neck marks on some of the Lego Movie 2 minifigures, while the chinese torsos from the Harry Potter series (and previous series) all had no markings. It could have been a decision they made after the subpar qualtiy of some of the Harry Potter cmfs (or for different reasons). They are now shipping the pieces seperately produced by different factories/subcontractors and sometimes prepackaged (i.e. the smaller tranparent foil packages inside the LM 2 series) to put them in the final (now larger) foil package. So maybe the head was the only piece produced for the Hades minifigure at that particular factory (the one that still had the mould for the ghost-rider head). Injection molding tools aren't cheap to produce and maintain, especially for multi-component molding like that head would require

    They also produced the female vampire acolyte of Balthazar in physical form with purple crystal hair (which can be seen at 3:12 on the bottom left). As they look both like finished minifigures and not just prototypes, it's likely they will both be released in the spa set

    Only the face print and torso print are new for Ollivander. Honestly I doubt he's a cmf. There haven't been any early cmf leaks since they moved the production completely to china

    The missing leg print seems weird for a cmf

    That's the new versions of Harry and Ron I was talking about. And this pic also confirms my information of Filch being in the whomping willow set. You can see him standing on the wall section on the right
