    So given we have nothing more to go on, what would you speculate to be the minifigs in the D2C? Do we think it’ll be based on years 1 and 2 or a broader spectrum of books? It may be time for an updated Lupin to make an appearance, or even maybe Voldi…

    So at that price point the Hermione polybag is pretty good value. I can’t make out the spell book but would be great if it’s a new one. And a cheap way to get some wizard cards if you’re missing some

    ^^ this! absolutely loved the Hogsmead builds. I just hope they give us more in the future (a man can dream)! The bathroom was hugely underwhelming to me, although I only really bought it to get Crab and Goyle, so wasn’t expecting much anyway. But it was still somehow a letdown. Scored 5/6 on the chocolate frog cards, so very pleased there. Not sure what to do with them now though...

    Thanks for sharing. For me this just confirms my initial impressions... the sets may be good play sets (I guess that’s the point after all) but really don’t look good as a display piece. The outside just seems a little unfinished and lacks detail, while the inside is just too boxy. I realise others may well love it, but I’m glad I got the 2018-2020 castle and hope they revert back to it after this anniversary edition.

    Why would they bring out a 14+ Frozen castle? Surely the demographic for this is the younger children?..

    I know what you mean, but with the exception of the bridge (which would obviously look weird as a flat structure), there isn’t actually even much in terms of verticality with that MOC. The whole castle is on one level I believe. For me, the real gripe with the 2018-2020 castle is that it looks, well... unfinished. If they completed it and it had a structure all the way round, then it would probably look much more like a castle than the current sprawling structure it is.

    Maybe the Icons set is designed to be scaled with those new Harry and Hermione giant figures...

    ok, just pre-ordered the Hogsmead and the bathroom sets. The latter is just for the crab and goyl minifigs really, and I’ll re-use the pieces for something else...

    I’m the opposite. For me the 18-20 hogwart interior was far more detailed. The main difference is that in the previous iteration they tried to give us everything, so a lot of it was scaled down to more mini-representations - but for me these really hit the mark and felt super detailed. these new sets are more focussed on one specific events, so have less detailing as by definition they are trying to represent less. They are still great for what they are, but as display sets I find the 18-20 versions much more pleasing and detailed both inside and out. on a slightly different note, the quidditch lesson feels a little different and is the one set here that probably goes with either castle. It reminds me more of the room of requirements sets in terms of what it offers.

    Also, is the flying lesson the first time we get a set without any of the three main protagonists?

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    For me the only sets here I’ll get are the Hogsmead and the flying lesson (as this can easily be added to the 18-20 hogwart). I do have a soft spot for that fawks though...

    Wel let me first say that I’m very pleasantly surprised by these sets. I will definitely be buying the hogsmead set, which more than lives up to expectations. The hogwart sets are very nice and the detailing is fantastic, but as I already have the previous iteration and mainly have them as display sets, I’ll likely be giving these a miss. I’ll need to see about acquiring some of the minifigures though, as these are definitely the highlight of the wave for me! For the cards, I’ll reserve judgment to see what the distribution will be like (wondering if they are really limited to 16 characters or just 16 available if you buy one of each set...)

    Surely the buildable Fawks would be a prime candidate for a golden Dumbledore?..

    Yeah, I’m stoked the Lucius minifigure will be coming in a cheaply available medium like this. I really like that figure but haven’t found sufficient justification to spend €400 on the set yet (I love the diagon alley set but can’t bring myself to spend the money in one go...) For the June/august waves, I thing the Hogsmead set will hopefully satisfy my need for good new sets. The rest remain a bit of a disappointment to me but, as ever, I’ll hold off final judgment until I’ve seen the final sets
