  1. I know this might be getting a bit off topic, but I do think there's only so far Lego can push the envelope with these prices. Grievous' starfighter is 78€ which is just over 90USD, in Australia it's just over 85USD. I think this wave of sets being sold out so quickly might be more an indication of limited stock/supply than people being willing to pay the high prices and I hope Lego thinks that too....

    She might also get shoehorned into a random Hogwarts set/Ministry of Magic/Bill and Fleur's wedding/insert alternate scene, seeing as they did put Draco out of place in the Astronomy Tower. I guess it's a bit more of a stretch but I suppose they could do it... Some of the choices in the CMF do feel a little weird but I'm sure there was intention behind it. I wonder if they'll do an interview like the Star Wars designers did recently.
  3. Let's just report the political comments, no need to reply and start debate about basic human rights lol. Anyway, I'm hoping for Wuher himself to be in the set as well, because I missed the one in the last cantina set. Aunt Beru would also be a cool addition, I know she never appeared at Mos Eisley but it's been so long without her and maybe she could be outside or something (I'm probably being unrealistic but...why haven't they made Beru yet??)
  4. Yep, sorry for the vagueness...I got overexcited 😂
  5. Looks like the people who wanted a Lego Bad Batch set this year will most likely get their wish, just a little bit later than expected...

    This is of course possible but my gut feeling is that Hogwarts is a very famous and unique silhouette and so a display piece appeals to a wide range of people. Diagon Alley does not have as much of an appeal and is slightly less iconic, which makes me think they're more likely to make it a play set than a microscale display.

    It looks like Lego was inspired by the Studio Tour set decor: https://www.boorooandtiggertoo.com/hogwarts-in-the-snow-yule-ball/

    Wow, I fully just saw the piano and thought * table *. It's in Yule ball colours though, not black like Grimmauld Place, so I'm really not holding out hope that this will have elements from OoTP.

    Weird. Eurobricks glitched out for me a few minutes ago so maybe there's something up with that. And I just looked up pictures of the firebolt and that seems to make more sense now. Can't believe I didn't think of that! You're probably right. I suppose it was inevitable but it would have been nice to get more interesting, niche or Yule ball specific builds

    It seems weirdly cone shaped and oddly proportioned to be a broom but I can't really think what else it might be. Having another look there also seem to be the unavoidable presents that always come with ACs. I can't make out what's between the yellow present and the gramophone though. Something white—not Hedwig, maybe a food accessory?? On another note, is that the D2C Hogwarts in the background or just a stock image? I thought it was the Great Hall set but then I realised it has the three mini side towers.

    So uh moving on from this flaming dumpster of a discussion, has anyone been able to ID all the mini builds on the box art? I can see a giant gramophone, a microphone and stand, and a table, but I don't know what the rest are.

    Whoops, sorry—I meant that they would need to fill up the 16 spots, at which point they'll probably have more limited options after all the minifigures and variants they've produced so far :)

    If they did a CMF Series 3, the remaining house ghosts could definitely help fill some spots. At this point, we've gotten so many characters already that it wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility...?

    Yep, very excited to get Kingsley this year. On a slightly unrelated note, does anyone have any idea why Lego has been using cool yellow for all of the blonde minifigures in HP? I like the brightness of the colour, but I feel like brick yellow would just work better for some of these minifigures, at least based on the Hannah Abbott photo and Draco's appearance in HBP where his hair is much paler.
