    I'm sure the modified plates will show on B+P at some point.

    That too. But it is a cool modular to put into the new castle system and as much as I love the 2018 - 20 castle line, I do like the fact that the new system allows you to place little snapshots of the movie together, almost like reading a book. And Gryffindor Dorms are a must in the story.

    The thing with this set is, there are no new pieces or prints and the figures are repeats so it looks very easy to recreate. I have all the new HP sets apart from the new Brickheadz so will struggle to hit the threshold. Overall, just buying the parts will be cheaper ... And yet there is something about it that makes me want to have a sealed box copy and I have no idea why.

    I've had two unlucky sets in a row; my Hagrid in the Beauxbatons Carriage came with two left arms which was odd as the body, left and right arm are all factory packed into a bag, so a very specific machine error, then I've just had Diagon Alley come with a 1x1 Trans bright orange brick (not in the set) instead of an orange 2x2 jumper and a sticker sheet where the top thin layer is peeling on the stickers. I put in a parts request for Hagrid's arm, then got an email a day or so later from a named CS rep saying the part was OOS and would be delayed until November, but then a day or so later got the dispatch email and received the part a couple of days ago. Very good service. I've just put in the request for the DA pieces so I'll se how that goes. I used another jumper plate to complete the build and I would normally have just order the missing piece from BL or B&P next time I was making an order, but as the sticker sheet was also faulty I put in the parts request. I'm not paying for that on the secondary market for such an expensive set. I wonder if I've just been unlucky with two in a row. 🤔

    I mean, it gives them uniqueness I suppose, but very annoying I'm sure. I did have this recently with an actual set where the colour of one piece had scratched off onto another in bag. Can't remember which one, just know it surprised me at the time. Not much you can do really to stop it though I suppose. Were they packed tightly or loose? IOW was the dye forced of the black onto the white due to sheer force or is this a print quality degradation issue?

    O ye of little faith. If there is something coming, you can bet Lego will let us all know about it ... several days after it's leaked.

    I think that kind of shows that if it did somehow turn out to be Gringotts, Lego would be on the money (pun completely intended), but they could be referring to the free GWP we all know is coming for all we know because Lego has a history of hyping the underwhelming.

    It's Dragold isn't it. I mean, what more would we need. 🤣 (On another note, I cannot afford nor keep displaying / storing this amount of HP Lego 😂)

    As they've gone there with these buildable statues I really hope they do release a Ron. However I don't think it will happen because Lego is the king of inconsistency and doing the illogical, plus unfortunately I don't think Ron on his own would sell as well even with the lower price point for the single figure. I think Harry is probably the draw of the set for the majority of buyers; I myself would not normally have gone for this type of set as I love minifigures and location based sets, but it was Harry in his cape that got me. As it is I just display him rather than the duo, but if I could get Ron I would definitely display them all together. In the UK the set is only available through Lego direct or exclusively from a toy store called Smyths and I picked mine up from Smyths when they had the set reduced from £120 to £90. I must say that even that felt a little expensive, so I can see why the set might potentially not be shifting well at RRP.

    Lego must know how well a Quidditch minifigure pack would sell surely. Kids would love it because of the 'battle' and 'game' potential, AFOLs would love it for the figure MOC and amassable potential. It seems like a no brainer, unless they want to make it a small but pricier set like they're effectively doing with the SW Dark Trooper set.
  12. The rumoured Death Star Fight Scene set could well be from TROS, but Disney's moved on so Lego will probably just throw in a token set here and there like with PT stuff.

    Me too, although I do understand the reasoning in terms of letting characters sit down for play. Still, Moments Sprout with legs was a downgrade for me compared to CMF Sprout with skirt, whereas McGonagall was an upgrade primarily because of the skirt and then the hat/hair was just the sweet icing on top. I don't see why Trelawney has to sit down in this set anymore than McGonagall in the Transfiguration class book, but .
  14. From what I've heard, there had to be a build element to their product if they were going to sell it. Hence why 20th anniversary Obi-Wan poly could be sold because it had a buildable stand, but other individual figure polybags have been GWPs.

    I mean I don't normally read much into them, but I just find it strange that with this one, Ron's outfit is the only 'made up' thing. Which is why it has me questioning if it is 'made up'. Otherwise it just annoys me that a kids' activities book can have DH references despite the comments about it not really fitting their brand.
