    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    1 month. Though resellers/marketplace sellers will most likely list them on Amazon before that at inflated prices.
  2. There's nothing quite like free stuff to bring the complainers out of the woodwork.

    So it is Hogwarts... just not a Hogwarts anyone wanted. Oh well.

    Seems like the Birthday CMF figs didn't start leaking until 1-2 months before their release?
  5. The leaked description for the Swoops set suggests combining them with with Hauler and the Conveyex sets to recreate the scene, much as the HP Great Hall description suggested combining it with the Whomping Willow. But that said, I'd be surprised if the Hauler included another car from the Conveyex... would be nice, but seems unlikely.

    I don’t disagree with what you’re saying, but lately it seems there are far more people here talking out of their @sses than there are on that other place. Misinformation tends to spread further (and unchecked) here, with fewer people calling BS and more and more people misrepresenting rumors as established fact.

    As opposed to... this place?

    1. We don't know this. 2. Price leaks are often wrong, especially the early, vague ones. 3. While a $500 D2C set would most likely be Hogwarts, a $350 D2C could easily be Diagon Alley. See: 70620 Ninjago City.
  9. This set number turned out to be the Hoth Bacta set, which Rebelscum listed as a possibility in the article. So the mud trooper set could be another set number, or the report could have been bogus. Same deal as the V-19 Torrent and Resistance Transport sets, which I think may have come from the same source? LEGOscum can confirm since he wrote the article you’re referring to.

    Because the set lists for the rest of the year are —with a few small exceptions — pretty much known at this point. And even if they weren't, it's highly unlikely a line like Harry Potter would get 2 waves within 3-4 months of each other. Most non-Star Wars lines that carry on for multiple years get 1 or 2 waves per year, which would put a second Harry Potter wave in the first quarter of 2019, assuming it doesn't just get one wave per year.

    Nicely done! I like the detail where the reddish orange bricks meet the tan... very clever to use such simple elements to create architectural detail like that. The roofline also looks sharp, and the overall color palette is really appealing. Post bigger (and more) pictures if you are able!

    You're entitled to your opinion, but your opinion isn't "truth". My 4yo son is obsessed with "kitties" just as much as his (girl) best friend. And I know several male AFOLs who are more excited about Unikitty sets than most anything else coming from LEGO right now... she has a cult following dating back to her appearance in TLM that transcends genders. And even if she didn't, just because a show/movie/toy line has a female protagonist does not make it a "girl's" show... just look at the last three Star Wars movies. I would challenge you to back up your claim that LEGO stated the show was "just for girls" with some actual documentation. Because that seems pretty unlikely, and definitely off-brand.

    I would like to see three players from each team and Hooch. And if there are spectator stands, then Quirrel, Snape, and Hermione. But that's likely too many figs so it'll probably be two players each and Hooch.
