    The carriage works as a Hogwarts carriage as well! :) It was the only reason why I was mildly interested in the set. Although, I do love vehicles that isn't another car or helicopter!

    Funnily enough, I am taking a trip to Canada in October and a TRU is five minutes away from our hotel. *crosses finger they don't sell out*

    In your guys' opinion, has the past Hagrid's Huts been too tall to be proportional to Hogwarts? Also, with how much dedication they put in these sets...i really want to see of they attempted the two-room hut from the third movie and on!

    In the movie, Dumbledore never mentions he sees himself holding a pair of socks. I recall in the last book, Harry learns/realizes all this time, Dumbledore was seeing his parents and siblings all healthy and happy. So technically is the LEGO sticker incorrect?

    As I am building the Thunderbird while watching Deathly Hallows Part 2 (Gringotts Escape), I am thinking if TLG is planning a full fledged Gringotts, I hope it comes with a brick built Ukrainian Ironbelly!

    The Diagon Alley is such a cute build! I can't wait to have it. ( It will be so fun to build on my cramped desk. I won't have to worry about space lol! ) I have to say, microscale builds remind me of paintings. Up close, one can see each paint brush or each 1 x 1 piece. But from afar or blurred vision, they look really great in how it all meshes together...and the set sometimes can seem bigger than it is!

    I looked up to see if in the past if LEGO has ever released a set before and after a film release date. They did "before and after film releases" for PS/SS, COS and I won't count Deathly Hallows Part 1 because the sets released after this movie coincided with Part 2. So my guess is there will not be a winter wave release. Maybe summer. Also, I put Harry and Ron into their dormitory beds and I realized their legs are supposed to go with the 1x2 piece! So now they wont fall out! No more balancing act!

    Just curious, what are your guys' opinion of the stickers in the UCS set? Not stickers in general or how many there are. I just find them to be pretty awfully done. The graphic designer who did them is a huge Harry Potter fan too. Compare this: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/32/f6/fd/32f6fd33674e17b7cc000625c6812513.jpg To this: https://i0.wp.com/www.brothers-brick.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/LEGO-Harry-Potter-71043-Hogwarts-Castle-97.jpg?fit=640%2C640&ssl=1 Why in the world are the frames slanted? Her designs feel rushed and not thought out. It just seems like she drew everything using the square tool or the rounded square tool. For such a BEAUTIFUL front AND back...I wish they had partnered Justin with someone who could have done a better job.

    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! =)

    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. :)
