    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I went to Barnes and Noble right when it opened and was able to get a minifigure pack by buying the Hogwarts Express. The employee I asked about the promotion didn't know about it at first and I had to show him the sign that was placed in the LEGO section for him to confirm that such a promotion existed. But regardless, I now have the pack, and can spend the day building my new Hogwarts Express!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Hopefully that artwork is an indication of things to come next year. That Buckbeak in particular would be great to see in a set, as it would make for a nice improvement on the 2004 version.
  3. The sets look decent overall. The Spider-Mech vs Mega Venom looks like the best set of the wave, and it is odd they put both Miles and Carnage in another smaller set. The presence of Spider-Man 2099 in the Spider-Crawler set reminds me of the final boss of Spider-Man: Edge of Time, though I doubt it's an intentional reference. The lack of new villains is disappointing, though the new designs for the old villains look pretty good overall (besides Doc Ock's arms) Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man 2099, and Sandman seem to be the best minifigures in the wave in my opinion.

    Hogwarts Express Micro

    Great build! The train and environment look recognizable and detailed for the size.

    I was really hoping for a winter wave, but I'm still looking forward to getting more sets regardless.

    Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Getting more sets for this theme is a nice surprise. Hopefully some new dinosaurs will be featured.

    Wizarding World of Harry Potter Wishlist

    Thank you for the feedback! The pricing probably is a bit optimistic, though I'm going by the assumption that LEGO would scale down the locations to varying extents (without making them microscale, of course) to fit them into a variety of price points, rather than selling entire waves of $100+ sets.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    That's a very interesting catch. Hopefully these are a hint at what's to come next year, and not just minifigure designs made up for the book, though I suppose only time will tell at this point.
  11. That Green Lantern Mighty Micros vehicle looks exactly like a MOC from this video from 2016. It almost certainly not an actual upcoming set because of that.

    At least 5 more sets for winter? That sounds promising! Hopefully it won't be too long before further details can be revealed.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I was hoping for a minifigure scale set myself, as I'm not really interested in microscale, but at least I don't have to worry about saving up for a D2C set. The Ollivander minifigure by itself should be fairly easy for me to acquire.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Wow! That Diagon Alley looks amazing even out of focus in the distance! I'm already dreading how much that will cost, seeing as (at least from the perspective it looks like it could be bigger than Assembly Square and could easily be comparable to Ninjago City in terms of piece count. I can identify Gringotts, Ollivanders, and Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and I'm guessing that the small green shop is meant to be Flourish and Blotts, and that the red one is Quality Quidditch Supplies, though I'm not certain.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    The Target near me restocked the CMF wave, so I was finally able to get Voldemort and Trelawney, so now I have the complete series! Definitely a great lineup of characters and variants overall. At least in my area, the LEGO Harry Potter sets and CMF series alike have been selling incredibly well everywhere. Every Target, Walmart, and Barnes and Noble stocking the sets I've been to never have many of the sets left on the shelves, with little to no sign of the CMF bags remaining in most cases. The store employees I've spoken to across numerous locations have told me that they've had trouble keeping enough of the LEGO Harry Potter merchandise left on the shelves to meet demand. The promotional mini Hogwarts Express building event that the Barnes and Noble closest to me held was so packed with kids and their parents that I could barely move through the section of the store where the event was being held. Even the Harry Potter polybag set seems to be selling better than the other polybag sets at the Targets near me. Everything I've seen and heard suggests that the new LEGO Harry Potter line has overall been a massive hit that generated considerably more demand than any of the stores around me could have anticipated.
