    Right, because NO characters from their TV shows made it into Endgame....... Lol anyway, I always assumed it was a control thing. He and Jeff Loeb obviously saw how the TV shows should work differently so he basically just ignored them after a while so there wasn't a part of the MCU affecting the rest of it that he couldn't directly control

    I'm pretty sure I saw a MOD that made the Daily Prophet top match up with Florean's on instagram. I'll look up who it was later today, but they're someone who posts a lot of decent HP MODs that have decent editing skills too

    As in shop selection or do you think the set itself is better? Because I could maybe see your point if you're talking about the shop selection

    Which one is that?

    I would imagine they have at least a little flexibility in production. New molds obviously would be harder to reschedule but other than that I feel like it wouldn't be too hard

    I wonder if they've already started making Eternals sets? I imagine it would be costly for them to store them for over a year before being able to sell them! What are the chances we get a new Black Widow set now that we have another 9 months until the movie? That's the usual production timeline so I'd say it's highly unlikely, but they could decide to make a spoiler set to capitalize on the hype for this movie. I bet people will be VERY excited once it's finally released

    Does anyone think the new medium nougat "Nick Fury/Finn" hair from the Elite Police Driller set (60273) mean we might be getting an Osborn soon? I'm definitely using it for custom Harry and Norman. I'm leaning towards no, but it would be really cool if they did!

    I've always considered the hair they gave Krum as a buzz cut. I think it's realistically as close as LEGO is ever going to get

    Now that would be a great surprise

    So the $10 sets are confirmed as more mechs?

    Ebay is only ever great deals or complete ripoffs from my experience

    I would argue there was an improvement in the builds too. The Avengers tower is the best Marvel set they've made in a long time (or maybe even ever?) for me

    I imagine we might see Marvel on the list again next year. This wave is easily (for me) the best one in years and the last Spider-man wave had a number of new characters that have been asked for for a while. We just won't see the results of these sets for another year. I would be more disappointed if it's not on the list next year. The current wave's quality is down to it being on the list last year so they might drop the quality if these don't sell as well as the Endgame sets

    What store are you price matching the prices from? I haven't seen CMF's going for $3.44 anywhere

    New VIP system

    I think that kind of gets to the core of the issue for me: it used to at least feel fair and like a good deal. The points were easy to understand and were easy to redeem, and I feel like there were more 2X points opportunities. When LEGO revamped their website and the VIP rewards, they definitely made it look nicer but it can be harder to use. I'm not usually one of those who goes "back in my day it was great!" but they really took a step back when they updated (you can't even organize or comment on your wishlist anymore!). Now I buy most of my LEGO on Amazon, it's frequently 20% off and I get 5% back with their card Then again, at least LEGO isn't Toys R Us bad

    Tyson's is such a long mall, but I've been to their LEGO store a few times (mostly for BAM) and it's so nice! Really wish there was one in southern VA too

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    What are the chances that we get a double VIP points offer on the D2C? I'm still on the fence about it but getting $40 back would probably be enough to convince me

    Would it have any new minifigs/prints though? The DC one is just the minifigure series WW and Cheetah with another character made of existing pieces.

    Right, like I said I'm not opposed to it, just noting that it's very expensive and maybe prohibitively expensive for me. It is a little frustrating that I'd be missing out on Lockhart and Lucius if I skip it though since they were at the top of my list of missing minifigures I wanted at the end of the last wave with Ginny I would bet that we're getting a second D2C DA with the other shops and Gringotts in 2 years. "Gringotts and Alley Shops" or something like that

    It's kind of weird that this set looks better to me spaced out than in a line As great as this set it, unfortunately it's pushing me towards not buying HP sets anymore. I just don't know how I can justify spending $400 on a set, which I have no idea how I'm going to display, when I'm buying a house and getting married soon. In general this year, the sets have been getting more expensive and harder to justify but this really puts it over the top for me. $720 (not including the minifigure series or Hedwig) for JUST this years sets is kind of crazy, I've been getting rid of other stuff of my LEGO wish list to accommodate HP, but it feels like I'd be better suited cutting out these sets to still be able to buy more than a couple sets a year But that's just me, for the people who can afford this theme it really is wonderful! I'm so glad that LEGO is giving us more playsets and less vehicles (which makes sense for HP but still)

    But didn't he say it cost $30 or $40? I don't see B&B being worthy of the rest of the shops at that price. I'm leaning towards it being the brick wall "entrance" to DA. That Harry makes sense for that scene and it would legitimately add to the scene. Especially at $40 they could do some fun stuff with the entrance...

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    This set is so confusing to me. I've been really excited for it until I saw the minifigures and now I can't help but feeling it's just too expensive for what it comes with 14 figures is a lot, but for a $400 set it feels lackluster (especially compared to the 20+ in the rumored $300 Ninjago City set) and the figures that are there are mostly repeats. Admittedly, Lockhart and Lucius are great additions, but it's honestly a bit weird to me that there's no shop owner for F&B and Scrib. It really is a beautiful set, and I really like it overall but the price makes it hard for me to justify if it isn't full of stuff I really want. I think at $300-$350 this would be fine but I personally want more characters (especially ones that could only be in a set like this) for $400. On a different note, I really don't get why people are so upset about how LEGO is doing reveals...they have a plan and they're sticking to it. Just be patient. They can't help if someone leaks it in the meantime I am very surprised that the leaked Harry didn't show up in this set though. I also noticed there doesn't seem to be an entrance (other than Knockturn Alley) when I'm pretty sure there was one in the set description...I wonder if the HP-4 set that ninjawhip told us about is a $300 GWP that's the brick entrance with that Harry? Just a thought

    Personally, I think they're different enough that at most I'll be taking interior parts of the old tower to add to the new one. The colors for everything changed I believe

    That's very interesting! I might pose that question to my family as well and see what they think. My mom is as big of a fan as I am and my sister loves the movies but I don't think she's ever read the books (she asked to borrow mine recently but they're packed up in storage until I move into my new house
