    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm holding out hope for a proper hotel, even though hotels were technically covered in Cafe Corner. You could have a reception area with a bit of space for eating (because we do know LEGO loves their food establishments!) and lounging about. Then the next floor could have hotel rooms for some interesting and mysterious characters to add a bit of story; and you could also have some space for the hotel workers, and a swimming pool/gym. I know that Friends has covered a lot of this in their hotel, but I think the Modular style would still be incredibly welcome. Similarly to the Detective's Office, I think the Hotel would allow for a kid-friendly version of a mystery narrative. Where DO had a prohibition-style story using cookies, you could convert a spy/mystery style narrative into a more kid friendly story for a hotel modular. Why are these weird colourful characters all staying at the hotel? It'd be fun, I think. Other possible modulars I'd really love: a proper museum would be fantastic, especially to mark 60 years of the brick. You could have some of the exhibitions be nods to old LEGO sets. I'd also love a school or college, as I feel one has been pretty sorely missing; that could be mashed up with a library.

    That's a bit disappointing if this is microscale, I really wanted it to be minifig-scale. It looks really, really large for a promo set though. I'm hoping that the minifigure pack is also available via Shop @ Home.

    It'd be pretty cool if there were rollercoaster pieces inside Gringotts for the carts, but that seems more like a MOC idea. I'm completely fine with a set being only the facades of buildings, because these still have such a modular building look. I think they'd include it just to inject some more colour and fun into the scene. All of the other buildings would likely be duller colours, so I could see a designer putting Weasley's Wizard Wheezes in just to add a bit more life to the scene. Plus Fred and George are popular characters who would add draw to the set. The build you can see in the video might not be the finished product completely (like the prototype Great Hall that was debuted originally) but I'd say this is practically confirmation that Diagon Alley will be a set.

    On Credence's alternate face, is there supposed to be white in the middle of the silver circles? I've been looking at my figure, and it kind of looks like the flesh tone continues beneath the silver circles. Is there meant to be a brighter white, or is it just hard to distinguish the white from flesh tone?

    Sold out in Ireland as well, wow that was fast! I think that's the fastest I've ever seen sets from a regular wave sell out (not D2Cs). Looks like this is going to be incredibly popular.

    Managed to get 9 CMFs so far, no duplicates, including Graves/Grindelwald so I'm incredibly happy. Oh cool, thanks for the head's up! I'm considering getting the Parisian Restaurant soon, but now I'm conflicted haha.

    I don't think that either the M&M's machine or the Engine will go far. The Engine would have to be downscaled significantly and I don't think children would be particularly interested in just an engine on its own --- if it was a full vehicle, it would be a lot more likely. The M&M's machine won't get passed because of safety concerns. Even if most kids would understand the difference between an M&M and a Lego brick, it only takes one instance of a child accidentally swallowing a piece for Lego to be hit with issues. They're not going to want to take that chance.

    Apologies if this sort of thing isn't allowed, but does anyone know a reputable place where I could buy the whole series all at once, rather than having to buy the blind bags? I know there are places where you can buy a whole box but that would be pretty expensive - just wondering if there is any place where you can just buy one of each figure?

    Wow! Really impressed with the suitcase set! I wasn't expecting to like it so much, but it looks absolutely fantastic. The designers on this HP/Fantastic Beasts wave have done a killer job across the board.

    What did you buy today?

    Managed to find Speed Force Freeze Pursuit for 20 euro on clearance at Tesco. There was no way I was going to buy that set at full price just for Reverse Flash, so this was a really welcome surprise.

    The FB minifigs look fantastic! Very pleased to see them, it's making me way more curious about the Suitcase set. I'm not a fan of the brick-built Fawkes and Basilisk in the Great Hall set (although they don't bother me much because they're only side builds) but it'll be interesting to see what the brick-built creatures in the Suitcase look like. I think that the Erumpent will likely be built similarly to the rhino in the Black Panther set Rhino Face Off at the Mine (76099).

    It looks real to me, and looks really good too. But yeah, would not be surprised to find that this is an unfinished prototype given Nagini's colour and the lack of a printed base. Unique bases seem to be a thing for CMF now so I expect that this series will have it's own special bases, possibly with the Wizarding World symbol or the glasses and scar symbol.

    If there were a HP Advent Calendar we'd probably have heard about it, and it would most likely have been revealed with the other Advent Calendars. They've shown us the Star Wars, Friends and City ones. So there almost certainly is no HP one.

    Apologies if this has been covered before - but is it possible that Ollivander could be a promotional figure when the wave launches? I know that people were suggesting that his minifigure could be included with an upcoming book (which I do think is pretty likely), but I'm just putting the possibility out there given that we were talking about promos?

    More likely IMO is that they don't want to show the next CMF series while the current series is still being promoted. They don't want to steal the spotlight from Series 18.
