  1. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Small but the eyes are creepy af and the legs are great! Oh! And new spider molds? can't wait to get this one too. I'm getting SS-COS-POA lego vibes with these multiples of Harry and Ron!
  2. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    We can all agree that the prominent exterior buildings being: Great Hall, Grand Staircase, Clock Tower, Astronomy Tower (and a few others) The set of Hogwarts from 2010 is a great set. I realize now that I enjoy what the Whomping Willow set is doing that the 2010 never did: they are giving attention to the smaller buildings. The "fill-in" or "in-between" towers and buildings I think are the best words to call it. Take this picture for instance: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/8d/a1/54/8da15419c888a872cff0ace5618a5279.jpg Nestled between the clock tower and the grand staircase tower, there is a shorter building. If they continue to make in-between towers, our Hogwarts lego set will feel very complete. (and so far with the two sets, it has a very strong silhouette)

    This is a great idea! Thanks, MAB! :) I can't wait to hear HP exclusives for spending a certain amount now! I keep looking at the entrance at the trunk of the Whomping Willow. I wonder if TLG has any plans to make a tunnel or connect to the Shrieking Shack somehow. Hmm, but if I were TLG and a designer, I would deem that too complex/messy so I'm thinking they won't.

    Agent Kallus posted a video a page or two back. The Brickheadz were tagged with "8/1/2018" :)

    Thanks for posting that video! The car driving through the archway is so cool! They really did push to reinvent scenes from the movie. I think the Whomping Willow just needs those "long finger" type branches and it would've been passable! Hogwarts - 99.99 Whomping Willow/Ford Anglia/Hogwarts 79.99 Hogwarts Express - 79.99 Quidditch - 39.99 Grindelwald Escape - 19.99 Harry/Hedwig Brickhead - 14.99 Hermione Brickhead - 9.99 Question: Is anyone going to be buying all of these in one go? I'm wondering if I should space my purchases out during different visits to enjoy them for a longer time.

    I think the Gryffindor stand will be able to swing forward in the front for the players to fly in. I'm guessing the back will be open.

    I want two each of the castle/Ford Anglia and Quidditch sets. My goal is to create a better Whomping Willow. And for Quidditch, I want to make two ends of a field :) I noticed that when it comes to the stands, Slytherin and Ravenclaw have a different stand than Gryffindor because it does not have a hook thing. Psh, and they sacrifice our Hufflepuff stand as the one that will have a scoreboard on it? Haha, I'm just kidding. It's no biggie. I only trust us Hufflepuffs with the score anyway. The beige sand is a nice touch! Ugh, I LOVE the bridges/arches in the Hogwarts Express and Castle sets.

    As much as I love Harry Potter and Legos and the combination of them, I predict 2 waves at most before this brand retires again for a few years. Back in 2011, they had only two waves; the second wave being the Battle of Hogwarts and Forbidden Forest sets only. After that, there were no more. It could be that they only stopped because there were no more movies. I do hope I am wrong though! I would love many many sets with all the towers and turrets of Hogwarts!
  9. hey! i hope you are right that if it is a detailed Hogwarts, it would have some interior too!

    also, i think it's fun to see us all debating whether or not the D2C will have a great hall. we are so passionate. we find reasons as to whether or not it would have it...and we want to be right because we prefer the D2C to be a certain way. Haha :)

      I think the d2c Hogwarts will be just as the GH set style, but is only a guess :wink: We will see who is right if any later this year :laugh:

    I too have been pondering if it will be an Architect-type set but hopefully this is not the case. The 2010 Great Hall is on my desk...I love looking at it when I'm working; seeing Harry and everyone in there makes me happy. A closed up, tiny set would not be the same.
  11. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    These aren't lego, but the castle was sold in parts for the 3D puzzle: Part of the fun of the old HP sets were collecting numerous sets and then putting them together. I'm really crossing my fingers for ONE Great Hall. Buuuuuuut if there ends up being two Great Halls...I could live with it! I'd just be happy HP is back and I probably could mod one Great Hall into a tower.

    Yes!! That is perfect to be a Hogwarts carriage for my set! Now that I think about it....does Grindelwald steal a HOGWARTS carriage because his is being pulled my Thestrals too! *gasp*

    I recently put together the greenhouse from the Order of the Phoenix set and i LOVE the little thing SO much! It is not a big or flashy set but I surprisingly fell in love with it. It is so small and cozy!

    I would hope there is no Great Hall in the D2C set; but I'm not that educated as to how Lego markets their stuff so I would not be surprised if they included a Great Hall too. My guess is TLG is hoping to sell lots of the $100 set. And then they would make a D2C contain the least coveted sections of Hogwarts...for the more intense collectors who want ALL of Hogwarts. Imagine if the D2C is just a detailed, mini model of the castle set on a large piece of rock. LOL. I never was interested in Brickheadz much. They never interested me....but as a Harry Potter fan and a Lego fan, I will get them! hahaha.

    As for the Willow itself, Year 3's is SO much better looking. They can have it near the castle but please base the tree design off of POA's!
