    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    This is a really good point, I could totally see Lego rereleasing a lot of the most popular and memorable locations and vehicles in a few years time. Over the years they've already made 3 different versions of a Quidditch set, 4 Hogwarts Expresses and 3 flying cars! I could definitely see the car being put in a Privet Drive set to make it more exciting, and Lego could always make a Quidditch set based of Half Blood Prince as well. I know some Star Wars fans particularly get annoyed about rereleases but if they keep the theme going so we can get more sets from the earlier films in the future I'm all for it! I really hope Lego do go back eventually to cover the Chamber of Secrets and the Second Task

    Man I can't wait to see the back of the box pictures, really hoping that there is a specially printed Baby Voldemort but don't want to get my hopes up

    Oh my god these two sets are amazing! Standouts for me are the new variant for Hagrid, the Death Eater Figure and the entire design of the Beauxbaton carriage, its absolutely stunning! I wasn't so impressed with some of the previous sets and already had older versions of Hagrid's Hut and the Horntail but will be definitely be getting Expecto Patronum and these two, they're all fairly inexpensive and the minifigure selections are absolutely amazing!

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    My mistake, yes it is. The picture isn't the highest quality and it has been a while since I've seen the series. I also think the new hairpiece for Will could be used for a lot of other characters, maybe as a replacement for the hairpiece that always used for Young Anakin in Phantom Menace.

    Just seen a picture of all the Stranger Things minifigures (out of the box and constructed) and it looks like Will and Lucas both have new hair pieces! Lucas has the goggles and Will has a bowl cut, which are both really accurate. Its good to see that Lego are willing to invest even more new molds into this set.

    I love it how most of the Advent calender so far seems to be interior fittings for Hogwarts / Christmas displays, as this way there's stuff to put in Hogwarts should you try to expand it. Also loving those christmas tree and fireplace builds! The red Dumbledore figure is also my favourite out of the three new Dumbledore figures so far so it'll be good to get him without having to buy the Great Hall. This definitely seems like our last chance to get the OG Flitwick as well, I remember a scene in the first film where he is levitating baubles onto a christmas tree so that'd definitely fit here. I remember reading somewhere on here that Lego cannot reuse prints from minifigure series in normal sets so I really hope its not the Goblet of Fire Flitwick again.

    My theory on how Lego would handle a Chamber of Secrets set is that it would connect to the side of a part of the castle and look like a normal part of Hogwarts from the outside with a tower for moany myrtles bathroom. I’d rather Lego do that as even if the Chamber were placed under the great hall it would still be level with the ground floors of other parts of Hogwarts and this way it might look better than with what Lego did with jabbas palace and the rancor pit.

    I love Lego minifigures and the Harry Potter characters I got last year was amazing but I feel like we should all keep an open mind until we see the actual official images of the sets! So far the only information we've got to go on is a description of the preliminary set builds from a Toy Fair and a few minifigure pieces which were stolen from factories and cobbled together afterwards! Hardly enough to judge a whole wave of 5-7 sets on . Personally I was absolutely blown away by the amazing builds from last year so I will withhold judgement until we see see the official set pictures (hopefully in a few weeks).

    Its weird how Harry Potter is being treated so confidentially considering how old the line is. Though maybe the designers started on the wave later than some of the other themes after the last wave was so successful? I think the Ninjago ice dragon has new molded wings so hopefully the Horntail will get new wings as well! There's also a giant brickbuilt snake that is an awesome design and would be the perfect size for the Basilisk! All it would need on top of the techniques used for the Ninjago snake would be a new unique head

    The short legs are the same height as a brick, the mid legs are one stud taller The usual dress slope that Lego used to have for skirts would then make Hermione two studs taller than Ron or Harry so it'll be interesting to see what Lego does

    Just type in #legoleaks on instagram, a picture of Macnair's head piece is the first picture on there under the 'most recent' heading I personally like the print though thinking about it he will probably look like quite a plain figure. Still it'll be easy to just add a cloak and hood to make him fit in with previous Death Eater figures!

    I honestly think the wings might not be new pieces as there are dragon wings from the Lego Elves theme that would probably fit the Horntail in terms of size. I've just been looking at the Lego dragons from that theme now and I feel like a more realistic-looking version of the Goblin King's Evil Dragon would be a good indicator for molded pieces since both dragons are wyverns.
  13. Do you guys think that Anna's and Elsa's hair is made out of rubber or soft plastic? The molds do look quite complex and I know some hair pieces have been rubber before so wondered if that was the most likely option
  14. Wow what an amazing line-up! Hades is definitely the highlight for me! I love the mold they've created in the place of his legs as I feel it can be used for a lot more than the specialist mold for Ursula in the first series. My other favourites are Jasmine, Jafar, Elsa and Anna, I'll probably try to get all of those as they're perfect fits for the characters and instantly recognisable! I love how cute the entire front row of animal characters are but I don't really feel the pressing need to get any of them really. I'd definitely rate this series as better than the first one though!

    Does anyone know if there's anywhere they're still selling in the UK apart from the Lego shops themselves? It'd be great to pick up a few extras while they're cheaper, especially Cho Chang for that Ravenclaw torso
