    Harry Potter custom builds and moc's

    So in terms of placement, I've currently got Snape's Office next to The Quad's Entrance, and the Potions classroom parallel to it, next to that tower piece that's got a bathroom and Dumbledor's office in it. Speaking of which, isn't Dumbledor's office supposed to be in the big tower connected to the great hall? And if that's supposed to be Myrtle's bathroom, it should be on the other side of the display right?

    Oh dear, I definitely don't have the space for that at the moment . I'm going to have to plan for that at some point though if I want a Chamber of Secrets though. Relatively speaking, where would they be still? Like which part of the castle would they be "under"?

    Thanks for this list. It seems pretty complete which I appreciate since it'll make the mocs easier to decide on since I'll know what I'm looking for. In terms of existing pieces, any chance you know where the heck the two little classroom modules (snape's office and potions class) from the Whomping Willow set are supposed to go? I'm currently using them to give a bit of space between the Greenhouse and the Viaduct Entrance, but I'm not sure that's really correct.

    Question for you all. Besides the Bell Towers, which important parts of Hogwarts are we missing? My shortlist is the Dark Tower, the Middle Tower and the Library, but I'm probably missing some. Just wondering since I'd like to start filling out my display once I've got the space for it.

    This is honestly a beautiful creation. It looks damn near perfect, and the details are so nice! I really like that you integrated the room of requirement into it. I've been trying to find something to do with mine for a while now :P. I'd love to see how it looks connected to the rest of your Hogwarts! @f2iso100 Thanks for the kind words! I spent a lot of time making sure the structure would fit in well with the official sets, so I'm glad to hear that it looks like it does :). Content-wise the back is pretty sparse. The tower just has some quick little shelves of potions that I took wholesale from the Whomping Willow set since I built the structure using my extra copy of that set. The main structure is completely empty, mainly because I don't really know what's supposed to go there and didn't really have any ideas as to what might. I'd like to add more details to the thing, so suggestions are very much appreciated. As requested though, here's a picture of the back, as well as the updated front. You'll notice I updated the roof bit slightly, and am now using one of the slightly larger tower cone pieces since I found an extra in my parts bin.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there rumors a while back around the release of the Endgame sets that TLG was really happy about the recent performance of Marvel stuff and that we could expect an increase in quality of new sets in the future? How would that exactly look? Like can we expect a drastic shift? Or is it going to look more like a steady progression? Personally I think the most recent waves of sets have been a pretty nice improvement for what they are, even though I haven't really wanted to buy any of them.

    I just finished my attempt at The Quad entrance that was somehow left out of the Great Hall set. I built it with as many connection points as I could fit in, since I'm not sure how my final display will look once I get the Astronomy Tower. In terms of placement, it connects nicely to the Great Hall tower, and combined with the arch entrance segment from the Whomping Willow set, makes up the whole of that part of the model which connects to the astronomy tower. I also built this little connection piece out of spare bits that gives a bunch of different points of connection at roughly the angle that the aforementioned arch segment has connected to The Quad. It's nothing fancy, but its useful for getting things oriented. Apologies for the low quality images, I don't have much space in my living area to display things. More images are available here though: https://imgur.com/a/NVDsWK3

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    See that's strange to me that its not officially included anywhere. Ah well, I decided to connect it to the one side of the great hall to create a kind of wall where there's supposed to be a small building that we haven't gotten in set form yet and that I have yet to build a moc of. For now that does the job, if anything the corner piece makes for a good extension/direction shifter on my shelf that doesn't have enough space to display the castle properly.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    So I got my hands on the Room of Requirements the other day. Since it has pin holes like every hogwarts-related set, I was wondering if anyone here knows where it goes in relation to the other parts of the castle, and for that matter what a relatively accurate configuration using the sets from 2018 to now would look like.

    Your First Pirate Set!

    Oh dang, this was my first (and only) pirates set as a kid! I don't have it built anymore, although I did use that year of pirates to inspire my first ship when I cobbled it together from scratch.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Looking at the Skull Dungeon and that one small outpost thing, I'm really liking this wave so far. The kind of fantasy era feel they've got going on is sweet.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    So far I've gotta say I'm loving the figure designs for this wave. The villains all look fantastic, and the ninja are all going to be awesome for customs. Nya's torso especially just screams "Skyrim" and Cole's armor and bandanna will make fantastic pieces for Nexo Knights customs. Then again they all will, but the gold will work best for year 3 stuff, which is the state all of mine are in. Here's hoping we get that armor piece in pearl dark gray as well so we can do custom villains too. Edit: And that's not even mentioning the potential for Warhammer or Warcraft customs. Those armor pieces are going to be so useful!

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yikes, $80 is way too much for that set, even though I do really want a comic Iron Spider (missed out on the last one). I'll probably wait till it goes on sale, but then again I still have yet to get my hands on the Spidey figures I want from the late 2019 wave, and there's always that Hidden Side lighthouse that keeps enticing me...

    We also haven't gotten white suite 2099 and a bunch of the more modern suit variants. Mainly Big Time and Ends of the Earth Spider Armor. It looks like they're focusing specifically on stuff tying into Spider-Verse, so if I had to guess I'd say we'll see SP//DR as the next Spider-Man set vehicle.

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    So I found the DC Minifigs at my local Mastermind, right in time for me to use my buy 1 get 1 half off cupons, so I picked up the figures that I really wanted, those being Bumblebee, Stargirl, Metamorpho, Aquaman, Huntress and the Flash for $25 CAD after tax which imho is pretty reasonable. I really like the design choices for those figures, since a lot of them are based on the versions of these characters that I grew up with. Of the figures I'm still missing, I'm still a bit iffy. I think I'll pick up Batman and Mister Miracle eventually, and will consider Green Lantern just for the parts, but otherwise I'm probably passing on the rest. Most of them don't really do much for me, and even though Cyborg is a character that I really like, I can't stand his original design. If anything I might wait till they go on sale for buy 2 get 1 free and pick up the rest of the series then.
