    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Midnight here in California and the 71043 is still not available for order. Ah well! it is okay. I can wait. I hope everyone who wants one now is able to get one! =)

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    The original proposal was to have a Chamber of Secrets under the Great Hall...but cut due to budget. LEGO can still create a Chamber of Secrets set and flatten the top so the Great Hall can sit on top (just as they did with the 2001-2002 sets!) PLUS, they could have a rock formation on the other side of the Chamber walls and it could represent the cliff Hogwarts castle stands on. (They did this with the 71043 set)

    This would be excellent: Minifigures: Harry, Draco Cedric, Cho (the last two are already CMFs! They just need to make a Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw torso!) Hooch, Wood?, Flint? I am guessing it is a battle pack. We will get a trunk. A snitch. Quaffle. Beater bats. I am also thinking they need to include some sort of building for playability...but since we already have hoops and stands are too big for this set...maybe the white tents that sit outside of the field! I do not think they would have them as lockers but in COS, they had a small scene in the tent and Wood was in front of a chalkboard with the pitch drawn on it! It is a 'lesson' after all! Seeing a chalkboard with the pitch drawn on it would excite me as a kid! (Actually, it does right now. lol!) Like the OOTP Room of Requirement set with the targets, maybe there will be some sort of short hoop to shoot too. Minifigures, check! Building, check! Exciting shooting action, check!

    Thanks for correcting me! I must have imaged Cedric in the Graveyard set after playing LEGO Harry Potter!

    No order for these, I just LOVE these the most: Dean - a person of color AND he's such a minor character so it is greatly appreciated! Cedric - I am a Hufflepuff. I missed his first release because the GOF sets did not have Hogwarts elements so I saw no point in getting them. Newt - His smirk, his hair color and his Niffler are ADORABLE. I put the Niffler on a 1x1 and placed him into the suitcase to sit. SO cute! Dobby - At first his sunken eyes did not seem pleasing, but I do not mind it now! Dumbledore - Not a big fan of Gambon in HP 4-8, but I love the new beard mold on the minifigure! Bonus mention: I LOVE Nagini's mold. He does not fit into the grid lock but that is fine because his pose is menacing! Honorable dislikes: All three hairs of the trio as 3rd years don't do it for me. I dislike all three, but not liking all three lessens the blow! To be fair, it could be that I find the hairstyles of their first/second year hairs are PERFECT. So, I could be unfairly comparing them. (For the first/second year hair, did LEGO create unique molds for all three of them? It feels like it.)

    Congrats on getting all of them! Also, what store were you at that they had hundreds? The only place that I ever saw which had this many was LEGOLAND. Oh, if only I had a pass! Are you a big Harry Potter fan? I am and at first it hurt to open two duplicates (of the 11 I got) ...but I quickly was fine with it because I love HP so much! :)

    If I remember correctly, he is in the top left of the box. Not the first but the second one. Edit: Nevermind! Someone else replied correctly and I am wrong. :)

    Were you able to get the older Harry? I wondered if you could help me with my question (or anyone on this forum!) So the 1st year Harry minifigure hair is PERFECT. The way they sculpted his hair to part to show is scar is wonderful. My question is...with the hair mold on the older Harry (which I am not toooo fond of) does it show off his scar where his hair parts?

    I hope you are right! For the Order of the Phoenix film release, the LEGO Harry Potter line went downhill with only one castle release. Then the rerelease in 2010/2011 saw only two castle sets. If Harry Potter LEGO could not sell enough to keep going at its peak popularity (when there were still books and films being released), then my faith this line will be evergreen is super slim. :( I hope I am proved to be very very wrong!

    I think you are right! In the second film, it sits right outside the Great Hall. It is not there during the third film though. One more thing: too bad the diadem and locket don't come as actual pieces.

    Isn't it crazy that its big size is only an illusion? I am having trouble imagining the size right in front of me. ( It helped with the dimensions from OrangeChiliPeP )

    *sees new photos on Instagram* *runs to eurobricks to read comments on it* LOL The turrets and towers look great! Glad to see the founder minifigures. A new Gryffindor sword! The details replicating Hogwarts is well-done! This feels like proof that they do refer to the film building and they really are just limited on budgets that keep it from being as accurate as possible. I'm not one for the interior rooms nor microscale figures. *shudders* But I understand. I just won't have them out, haha! Funny seeing the Quidditch 2 x 2 icons of the Houses used like that. The other night, I put those on my Great Hall doors. ( Have fun with your haul, DungeonsAndFlagons! )

    For a second, I thought maybe he switched to Transfiguration AFTER Riddle applied and cursed the position?! But that can't be because Dumbledore would stop teaching once he becomes Headmaster?

    Thank you! Let me know how you end up MOCing these please! :) Just saw invisibility cloak Harry. WOW. I get this feeling the 2010 revival is nothing compared to this years. It just seems LEGO pushed to make every inch and detail look good. They went above and beyond. They did not have to make four Quidditch stands because they only ever had one in a set. They did not have to have a CMF line but they are so awesome to do it! I'm hoping these sell well. My targets now have the cardboard stands up but it is filled with Quidditch sets :( I worry when the shelves aren't sold out and empty.
