    That’s a great idea! Cmf books are printed instead of stickers too so that would be really cool to get

    Maybe we're only getting protagonists in this series, not any of the villains. I hope that doesn't have an impact on our chances to get Infinity Stone Ultron or Thanos Gamora

    So no Agatha then. I wonder who the third Wandavision character could be - two Wandas would be kind of overkill since we're getting her from Endgame too and there's only 12 CMF slots overall

    I was actually really impressed by the new Chamber’s statue and slide, neither of which I was really expecting. There’s also the amazing snake door and the mouth-opening tunnel for the snake - apart from not being able to fit figures on top of Slytherin I don’t know how the chamber could be improved and think it’s much superior to the 2002 set.

    Am I the only one who’s really happy that we’re getting 4 Hogwarts sets this year? We haven’t had that many in a single year since 2004! Really hope that this sets a precedent for small Hogwarts sets if we get more green-roof bits next year.

    This is great! The Fluffy set works really well next to the Gryffindor Tower, I love how that big looks accurate to the films. I definitely think I’ll split the Chamber of Secrets tower in two like you’ve done it I display that set from the outside.

    Thanks for this edit! I really like how the Fluffy corridor bit could look like next to Lockhart's classroom. The Quidditch door also look quite good on the ground floor next to the rock too, that set is actually quite useful to make another tower. I think apart from nostalgia another obvious answer is that the green roofs are there to contrast with the dark grey rocky foundations. I feel like if there was dark grey on the bottom and top it would not look as good - this was a problem the D2C Hogwarts avoided too by having their rock features dark tan to keep the foundations a different colour to the roofs as well.

    Thanks for this, I hadn't actually seen the Girl's Bathroom from the outside yet! I definitely think some of the configurations advertised are meant to put together just like that from the inside, I feel like Lockhart's classroom is permanently going to stay above the Girl's Bathroom for me. I do love how modular the rooms are though, really hope we get another year of this just for some more room-space . Maybe this is our chance to finally get a good roomy Gryffindor's Common Room

    Would that be the Richard Harris Dumbledore or the Michael Gambon Dumbledore? Just checking as they could release the blue-robed Dumbledore from the cmf without any obvious reprints. Also I can’t believe the only set we don’t have HD pics for is the Fluffy set! Hopefully we see it today

    The Anniversary Sets are everyone I was hoping for My favourites: Chamber of Secrets (definite buy!) The Forbidden Corridor (I'd get it if my youngest brother hadn't already bagsy-d it for Fluffy) Hogsmede (possible buy) Chess set (possible buy) Girls' Bathroom (definite buy just because of the Chamber sink entrance - I love the black slide in the chamber set) Flying Lesson (probably won't buy) Fawkes and the Megafigures (well-designed but not interesting to me) Also I'm so excited by the rock foundations on these new sets, I've got loads of those 4x6 rock pieces so I'm really looking forward to putting rock under a few more of my towers

    Oh ok, I had the wrong idea then. So sets we don't know will contain a golden figure are the buildable Fawkes, the D2C, the Advent Calendar and any exclusive/polybags that also come out.

    This would be interesting as it could mean there are only golden figures in the June sets and the buildable Icons doesn’t come with a gold fig either

    Honestly I’m more excited to see the builds than I am any more leaked figures. I’m most excited to see the Hogsmede shops in hd, the Chamber interior and the build for the chess pieces

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    Does anyone know how long the Blacksmith Shop is going to stay in stock? I've heard that some previous Ideas sets have had quite small windows of availability

    Ok so what do we think the most iconic objects in Harry Potter are? I would say: -the golden snitch -the sword of griffindor - the deathly hallows symbol (maybe as a necklace?) There’s also broomsticks, wand and the sorting hat but those are all very brown and might not be as instantly attractive / recognisable. Also it would be really cool if these ‘Icons’ were in scale with the brick-built Fawkes and Hedwig but I doubt that will happen as that would make a snitch build too small and the sword and broomstick models far too big
