  1. Strong hint from a designer in a Brickset interview that we are going to be getting more Mandalorian sets I think https://brickset.com/article/52445/interview-with-star-wars-designers-75292-the-razor-crest-and-jedi-fallen-order

    The printing is definitely thicker. Look at Hedwig from the sets and then the same part but from the CMF. Her printing is thicker on the CMF version.

    I don't think it means that it can't, but isn't there often a few months between a new licensed mould appearing and then it being in another license or unlicensed set? Correct me if I'm wrong because I can't go over to Brickset and trawl through to see, I'm just going on memory.

    That is true. Just wish it was more widely available. I can't afford to buy several Ap'lek's to get more hoods lol Do you think Lego knows what it's doing to us? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I wonder if they ever come on these forums and see how desperate we are lol

    That's interesting. Good memory! I'm picturing a weekly meeting around a table where they discuss what they're doing, any problems, new pieces etc and all try and help out. That feels very 'Lego' to me, all helping each other. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Haha I wonder if there is such rivalry amongst the designers? Would be cool to be a fly on the wall and know what goes on wouldn't it!

    Like I said, semantics, but it's a cool piece and it would be a shame to not see it reused for other purposes. It feels like 2 years, doesn't it? Really want a reveal!

    I think the confusion arises by what's meant by apparate - from the point of view of a bystander, apparate is when someone appears in a place, whereas disapparate is when they leave. So when Harry and Dumbledore leave for the cave, to us watching they are technically disapparating (although Harry does use the word apparate in the film which is technically wrong when he is referring to leaving Hogwarts grounds instead of travelling into). And yes, when they do this it's more like they are being sucked into the air. When the Death Eaters first appear at the Burrow though, from our point of view they are appearing out of nowhere having presumably travelled there from another place. So apparating is the right choice at first, even if after that they are technically 'flying' around The Burrow. But it's all semantics really. At the end of the day, it would be great to get the piece in both black and white so that visually we can represent both the Death Eaters and Order members battling if we want to.

    Whether you agree with the cinematic licence that the films took which enables the death eaters to fly, the sets are based off the films and to me the piece works well to represent the death eaters 'flying' or 'apparating' or whatever. Now I'm not saying that this is faithful to the book, but for the same reason that the films made death eaters fly in swirls of black smoke (for visual and action purposes) incorporating this piece into sets would to me work well to not only represent the movie visually, but also provides children with some more playability. That being said, if you don't like the piece then that's fine and even if they did include them in sets you don't have to use them which is the great thing.

    I do wonder how designers keep up to date with all the new pieces. I asked a few days ago if anybody had used the new black hood piece off the Knight of Ren Ap'lek on a dementor because that piece looks perfect for dementors to me. I know Lego probably won't want to update their dementors now, but that to me is another example of a piece introduced in one theme that seems perfect for another line. Maybe we will see that 'apparating' piece in HP in the future, but I'm really tempted to just order a couple of B+P right now. Wish I could order the black hoods too, but unfortunately they aren't available to order.

    I would hope we would have a CMF reveal either by or around then anyway, so I hope you are either right @Robert8 or the CMF is revealed before then.

    Harry Potter custom builds and moc's

    @Metanoios91 I love the motorcycle. Really solidifies my belief that if Lego wanted to include a vehicle for play in the Privet Drive set then it should have been Hagrid's motorcycle not another Ford Anglia. I'm sure someone mentioned on the other HP thread that the designers mentioned something about struggling to fit Hagrid in the motorcyle, but I'm sure they could do it without making a new Hagrid. I love your Grawp mod too - the shoulders really look like he's wearing his cloth waistcoat now. Between you and @Micmac I really want to mod my Grawp, but I'm just not that good at MOCs.
