    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    I’m guessing the torso leaks might be from the advent calendar if that rumour is true?! Unless there’s a special minifigure pack similar to Bricktober?! The set would be a strange choice for a kids play set. But could be wrong.. also regarding the conversation on diagon Alley, there’s so much potential regarding this, a smaller detailed modular type series would look great. Imagine an Ninjago movie modular type version fingers crossed something is in works.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    Hahaha Even tho I’m adding to it now, I keep getting excited when I see there’s been a few posts on this thread.. will there be any info coming from the upcoming toy fairs for these sets? At least we have a piece count, which to me seems like a good spread/mix of small to large sets to me. We are pretty lucky to be getting 4 sets when there’s no movie or anything being released this year. Curious if there will be a fantastic beast set included in the four sets?! Im guessing it will be all HP due to no FB film release this year. Eventually it would be great to have more beasts added to the inventory.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Haha true, I’m still in disbelief that they would make a city shop with so many pieces and not vehicle driven..that’s a lot of donuts Maybe it’s a stop off point for the Police? It will be a long wait until we see pics, I have forgotten when do things surface for summer release sets? Edit - added comment

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Wow! Thanks for the list @Falconfan1414 Lots of interesting names on the list here, excited to see the fairground minifigure pack, sounds promising i wonder what on earth is 60233? Opening of the donut store I’m not into the space sets but can’t wait to see them, hopefully it will make lots of fans happy after a long wait.

    10264 Corner Garage

    Completely agree with you re interiors maybe this is what bothers me about it. Also the garage interior seems plain. I just saw brickset have their review up might have to have a look at that.

    10264 Corner Garage

    Haha fall asleep and wake up to 8 pages of comments already. initial reaction upon seeing it was I like it (maybe not love it but always changes when I’m building it) it’s different ie shape of the build. Which I do like seeing in the modulars reflects the real world sort of. Despite maybe not being the totally refined in the technique. The photo someone brought up of the grey pieces at the corners do look a bit unrefined but Overall I like the look of it. The interior is a little lack lustre for me from the initial photos maybe it’s because there’s no tiling as per other modulars?! So it seems a bit unfinished? But it’s nothing a little MOCing can’t fix. I think we have also been so spoilt with the recent interiors that we expect everyone to follow suit. Pros -Liking the difference in the angled design. -like the use of a Vet clinic -I like the colour, I missed out on town hall (which was during a period where I stopped buying sets, I now regret not picking it up before they retired it, Australian prices for the resale are double ugh 😑) -I like the tow truck it looks like quite a clever build. - even though they aren’t new the animals included. - I don’t mind the repetitiveness of the top floors most buildings have this anyway. CONS - like others have said it feels like a weird combination to have a vet above a garage. - interiors which can be fixed ( although I don’t usually like doing it to modulars) in saying that the vet space is good. Just the apartment and garage something is lacking. - price increase but expected. For the designer it must be so hard coming up with something everyone will love, actually I would say it’s nearly impossible. Overall the designer has done a great job, us AFOLs just have high expectations and build up the release 😆 I think it will grow on most people over time who are a bit on the fence about it. My two cents

    Fingers crossed we get an official announcement this week or next?! We’ll be a month out from the usual release date of Jan 1. Hoping it’s not a police set, but would probably still buy it. Haha I’m still wishful thinking for a museum at some point, I was hoping the caveman exhibit in the city capital was a hint

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m just happy we get any amount of sets. I take it we might be waiting a while to get further info on these sets. Also hoping for Diagon Alley shop D2C set like it’s been mentioned similar to Ninjago. Do people think it could be possible to see something like this? Have the Ninjago D2C been successful? I don’t collect the Ninjago general sets but I purchased the D2C because I thought they were fantastic, so swayed me into buying them

    Thanks, missed the boat on this one. Ugh scalpers... I need to be faster than them next time hahaha.. I wish LEGO would make these sets and the Bricktober packs regularly available, obviously they are popular enough. Why do they do it this way? Seems that the scalpers are the winners in these cases. I bought all the HP and FB sets on day one release. I’d rather hand my money over to TLG so they can keep making these sorts of awesome sets!

    Ahhh.. how did I miss this on the Australian S@H? I’ve been searching for it on there for days and it’s never come up for me? What’s it come up under?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    That’s the one! That’s a great custom, would love to get a new official buckbeak mould like that. Ahh can’t wait to hear news of new sets. Anyone in Australia have news on access for us of the Bricktober pack? I’ve looked online to buy but the prices are extreme...then add postage to here ugh...

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    That looks amazing that MOC Hogwarts. If all the sets together complete something similar. Everyone will be very happy I’m taking this with a grain of salt... but have people seen a version of Hagrids Hut just recently added to IG about 1 hour ago, claiming it’s the new Hagrids hut set.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wishful thinking on my part but Would love to see a single use type building like a museum, the exterior could be traditional or modern. I could also imagine the interior having amazing details. I think the release of the Arctic sets and the new city square set 60200, teasing a museum got me thinking about a modular detailed one.. one can hope... With the stamped down on leaks and early info/rumours does this mean we won’t get anything until official release, I forget when around about would that be? If it’s a January release?
