    Wizarding World of Harry Potter Wishlist

    I wonder if the DADA classroom they release will be a FB version, considering its role with Dumbledore as a DADA teacher..I imagine that would sell better than just a purely FB oriented set as it would appeal to solely-Harry Potter fans as well.

    I don’t ask for a lot, just more Slytherin and Puff torsos that aren’t exclusive to $160 sets.... Also, I expect they’ll have a Sprout to round out the Heads of Houses. Hopefully the characters in the Toys R Us pack also come up in sets, as I have no idea how available they will be.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    One thing I just noticed in the Brickset review is that Draco seems to have a short cape in the CMF? A tad inconvenient for expanding a Quidditch team... Also interesting that Harry in 75956 has a regular length cape, which seems a bit random.

    Wow, these are incredible! I never expected this level of both printing and new molds, which are fantastic. I could gush about each one for hours. I have to say that I've always quite liked Gambondore (heresy!) and I adore the new hat/hair piece — I only wish they did something like that for McGonagall in the Great Hall.

    Harry Potter CMF Guessing Game

    Well, I got 10...But I'm overjoyed with the amazing new molds for Dumbledore, the mandrake, Moody, Nagini, Flitwick, Trelawney...I'm not sure how I feel about the new legs but I'm sure they will grow on me as more minifigures are released with them!

    Personally a bit disappointed because I always prefer the minifig scale sets, but it could still be great particularly if it has minifig compatible sections. What’ll really annoy me is if they put some crucial exclusive minifigures in the set that’ll cost fifty dollars on bricklink, because that isn’t fair for those of us who love HP but have restrictive budgets.

    Having just seen the new (big) images of the Toys R Us minifig set...Slughorn seems to have two-toned hair, which I don't understand, and he definitely has way too much of it as well. I hope they release them more widely though, I've never been able to find an exclusive giveaway at any of my nearby Toys R Us. :(

    Harry Potter CMF Guessing Game

    I find the Voldemort leak a bit dubious but I've included it because even if it is a fake, there probably will be a Voldemort (there hasn't really been one in the sets, besides Quirrell's head of course). 1. Harry Potter (with invisibility cloak) 2. Hermione Granger 3. Ron Weasley 4. Draco Malfoy (Quidditch) 5. Narcissa Malfoy 6. Lucius Malfoy 7. Molly Weasley 8. Ginny Weasley 9 &10. Fred Weasley and George Weasley (differentiated by face print and accessories) 11. Luna Lovegood 12. Sirius Black 13. Gilderoy Lockhart 14. Poppy Pomfrey 15. Tom Riddle (Chamber of Secrets) 16. Dobby 17. Voldemort 18. Neville Longbottom 19. Dean Thomas 20. Rita Skeeter 21. Colin Creevey 22. Moaning Myrtle I haven't included a few of the Hogwarts professors (Flitwick, Sprout, Trelawney) because I suspect that most of them will be included in the D2C. Update: Well, turns out I was probably wrong about not including the Professors, so they'll probably be included either in the CMF or future waves...

    It's being used for Barriss Offee in Star Wars and in the Han Solo movie sets, it's kind of like the old slope but it curves at the back.

    Bit disappointed that McGonagall just has regular legs but I think it's so she can sit down in the Great Hall. Can't remember the CMF list but maybe it will have her with the new robe piece? (Please.......)

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Wow - I only have a few Marvel Lego sets but the Sanctorum and GOTG ship look fantastic. This wave might end up getting me into collecting more Marvel... Any news on if the D2C has been confirmed as an Avengers headquarters or as a ship? As I've seen reports/rumours of both.

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm very disappointed that the Seventh Sister was not included, especially considering they managed to mold the Fifth Brother, and female Star Wars characters always seem to get the short straw in being made into minifigures. However, Ahsoka looks great - intrigued by the lightsaber colours though...

    The prices in Austalia are always marked up so much more, exchange rate besides. :(( Also, I may have missed it but did someone confirm whether the Seventh Sister was coming with the mystery Ahsoka set? It seems pretty likely...
