    Hogwarts Icons 2.0: Go Hard or Go Home. * *It better be Gringotts. They got me once with Hogwarts Icons, but they're not getting me again with buildable objects for nearly double the price.

    They say only the best is good enough and unfortunately they seem to apply this mantra to their screw ups.

    @BrickBob Studpants No that makes sense.* *You could still be lunatic, but I just have the obsessive trait too so can't comment on that status just understand your struggle. @Clone OPatra A very sensible approach and one I did try to follow to start with. In this line of thinking I have now failed spectacularly.

    I love the smallness of the small print. For me my thinking is not so much related to the paradigm shift as the potential longevity of the theme. Sure, the first helps to extend the second, but they could be making sets in the style of 2018-20 constantly and the question would still arise. As for the shift, I can see the benefits of both castle systems for instance, the 2018-20 being better for outside display, but the newer style lending to more customisability and the ability to easily add scenes. However, there comes a point when sets will have to be dismantled and boxed up and for me that feels wrong; I would rather 'recycle' the money into new sets than have further outlay and allow others to get joy out of the sets than have things boxed away (absolutely no judgment on those that do, it's purely personal choice). At the end of the day, Lego moving into more buildable creatures and objects in this theme has 'forced' me as a (aspiring) completionist to buy and build sets I otherwise wouldn't and I am glad they did; Hedwig, Fawkes and Hogwarts Icons have been fun builds, and I whilst minifigure play sets will always be my personal preference, I've appreciated being introduced to a wider range of building techniques and they add variety to my collection and display. In the short term I will probably continue to collect everything Lego HP.* * If they release a limited convention exclusive Brickheadz or a SDCC golden Dobby then I'm out.

    Thank you all for your answers. It seems that most of you are like me in that if you have tried to collect all or most of the sets, that the new modular Hogwarts and the longevity of the line has swayed your thinking. @BrickFunatic I actually got four of the art set in November as I got them each for roughly £60. They were the last set for my completionist collection. But I didn't open them straight away and although the concept has always interested me, I just couldn't bring myself to go all in on them in the end and returned them. Cheap (for that set) or not, that money is better spent on more traditional Lego sets for me and it became clear at the end of last year how expensive this year was going to be. That's an excellent way of putting it and I think captures exactly why I buy as much as I can. None of the sets are 'perfect', but when they are leaked as descriptions/photos and we talk about them I feel that spark of excitement. When I see them released, again ... And when I build them the same thing. Looking at all the sets also brings me joy. There just comes a point where it might get too much. 🤣

    Okay so slightly off topic and yet instigated by all the talk of the new sets. I'm wondering how many of you have changed your perspective / buying habits now that this theme looks like it's going to be longer running. I'm a bit of a completionist and yet, not only is this year going to be a very expensive one for HP Lego, but all that new Lego will need to find a space somewhere. So I'm interested in whether those who did try and collect everything have now changed their thinking and if so, what are the sets that you would keep and what ones would you be more likely to let go in order to fund new ones? I.e. Would you part with the 2018-20 castle line as it seems it won't be added to and now focus on the 'new' modular line or are you not interested in the new line over the old? Would you prioritise 'scene' sets over buildable creatures? Just curious as to others' thinking as I'm starting to wonder how long can sustain collecting all the sets. 😂

    Maybe a Troll bathroom? The troll might be a big figure because it couldn't be a buildable figure like Grawp as he wouldn't fit in the castle section, but it would need to be bigger than a normal minifigure. I thought there wouldn't be another bathroom set at the moment, but if Polyjuice Potion Mistake is retiring so quickly I suppose there could be a crossover. 🤔

    Haha yeah I know. The dirt stain figures will be playing catch up with the other POA versions of the trio in my display. I'm just saying I can't wait to put Dobby on the bed and make it more COS. Always liked the scene.

    Anybody else see the hospital wing set and just want to recreate this scene?

    That's true, but they've made it look like a jumper for some reason. Why is there black at the collar and dark red at the bottom? 🤔 Either way I still love the set.

    It's a bandage piece. It was first released in either a Friends or City set a few years ago now.

    The tiles are advertised on the back of the box art.

    I love the hospital Wing: Pomfrey, Ron with bis bandaged leg the Skele-gro bottle, the beds look really cute, the curtain divider, and two more wizard tiles as a bonus.

    The Hospital Wing comes with frog cards as well so not just an anniversary thing. And there is a Moody microfigure in the chest!

    Or they might even do Mad Eye. He could pair with Neville. I hope so too.
