    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Not on Youtube apparently. According to him, Lego is threatening any content creator who even speaks about possible upcoming sets in a video with a copyright strike. He said that under their new policies, if he was to make it now, even though he is out of LAN, the video that he made last year speculating that a UCS Imperial Shuttle was coming would have been hit with a copyright strike by Lego, even though that it a) never used any 'unreleased' copyrighted images b) was just a rumour video and c) turned out to be false (at least for 2021). Theoretically he could leak it via some other social media, but why would he risk it?

    It looks darker than olive green on the top to me, more of a dark bluey grey, and more tan on the bottom, but the whole scene definitely has a greenish hue to it and it's hard to establish the basilisk's true colour in the dark lighting. That being said, I don't think olive green looks particularly good for the whole thing, but then this isn't the theme for grey so if they can't distinguish the underside from the top for the whole length of the basilisk then olive green all over seems like an okay compromise. If it was a bigger more detailed model then I would question the colour more.

    I would say in your dreams, but ... I think your brain already knew that. Thing is, we have two reliable 'leakers' now so it will be evident straight away if they're credible. Time will literally tell so yes let's just be patient.
  4. I voted for the Gunship and sure, I'd probably like a system scale gunship with a great figure selection better because it would give us the opportunity to get a great model and some much needed figures. However, when I voted for the gunship I was under no illusion that it would come with loads of figures. I voted for a UCS gunship and precedent shows that for UCS ships you're lucky to get two figures, normally pilots, and that is what I expect to get for the Gunship. But as someone who has no other UCS ships, the Gunship is the one ship that, as long as it's done well, will make me get a UCS set - no other OT UCS set has done that. So that is why I voted for the gunship; because I love the source material. No idea where I'll put the thing, but I can't see me be able to resist getting it. I do agree though, that a lot of voters, probably not those on this forum, with less knowledge of the UCS/system scale distinction will be expecting something more figure focused. I will say though that Lego did inadvertently connect the model with figures by actually asking what figures people would like to see with the set

    I know you probably want to hit a GWP threshold so you may not be looking at other retailers, but Amazon has the Clock Tower reduced to £61.85 at the moment which is a decent saving.

    I struggle to believe that Lego won't release a small Harry Potter forest related set this year when they've had such fun discovering different ways to make trees for the last three years. Am I barking up the wrong tree? 🤔

    They are just his predictions - he says so in the comments ('They're predictions so nothing here is confirmed just rumours and my best guesses'). By 'evidence' he means just means ask me how I came up with these theories. It's a non starter.

    From what I understand Warwick Davis was not meant to appear as Flitwick in POA. Cuaron simply gave Davis a part as a hitherto unknown 'wizard' who conducts the school choir. He was not meant to be Flitwick. But Newell liked the look of Davis' Choirmaster and decided to keep him in the films as Flitwick.

    It's just a guess.

    That was another one that got me more in the books than the film. I was gutted when I read that first time around. In the film it's kind of chaotic at that point so it's not as 'zoned in' on her death. Still a poignant moment though.

    I read the books on release and then got the audios. The first four books I had the audios on cassette tapes. They were trans coloured plastic back then which I thought was just magical in itself, they would take me months to save up my pocket money for, but I played them so much they were so worth it. Kids today would probably look at them and ask what they even are though. OOTP I then got on CD and after that it was digital. I don't know how many times I listened to them as a kid/teenager. I applaud your dedication to reading them though, that's an art in itself! I too have the film images superimposed on my brain now though, even with all the times I've listened to them - it's hard not to. The HP Lego revival definitely got me watching the movies again too. Predicting sets, checking set accuracy, getting excited about the sets that could come next etc. I so hope the theme returns to form in 2022, or if it could later this year then that would be great (Lego I need that Durmstrang Ship and a Merperson. Thank you.) Even now it's like, 'I know what's going to happen, no need to get emotional.' Next minute ...

    Ah sorry. You're not a fool lol. Dobby's always stood out to me and then you're comment got me thinking. I listen to the books on audio when I want a refresh, not that I have in a while though. Don't think I could read through them again, my attention span couldn't take that when I know the material so well.

    For me all the deaths were more powerful in the books than on screen, but Dobby's in film death was a real tear jerker for me. Thinking about it though, Snape's was pretty affecting.
