    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    As someone who is not particularly interested in microscale sets, I am unlikely to go out of my way to get a GWP Hogsmeade if it doesn't have an exclusive minifigure, but I hope it means that a minifigure scale version becomes a D2C set eventually.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The new polybag looks neat. I'm glad the new Hedwig will be available in such a cheap set. The build is pretty good, and multiples could fill out a Great Hall well. I'm not sure that I'd rank it over the previous polybag though, as that was an easy source of cauldrons and spell books. I'll still buy at least one however.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I definitely cannot wait for LEGO to officially reveal the Harry pOtter sets so that there can be more to discuss. Or at least a leak of something new, because I'm wanting to pull out my hare from all the otter pictures!

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    At 18:32, you see the Mario figure with the eye lights turned off. Creepy! Making some new eyes out of paper and sticking them on the figure would probably make it more suitable for display.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I am currently assuming that the Diagon Alley set will be a minifigure scaled version of the microscale set. I could see the Leaky Cauldron being included as well, but Borgin and Burkes isn't a direct part of Diagon Alley, and seems less likely to be included unless LEGO just decides to repeat what they did with the 2011 Diagon Alley. I assume there would be a small vault build for Gringotts, but I would hope it's just Year 1 based, as the whole Year 7 Lestrange Vault/ dragon escape scene would probably be better off as a separate set. Despite Quality Quidditch Supplies not having much of a role, LEGO seems to like it, considering it got it's own set in 2003 and was featured in the microscale set. I also think that there will likely be multiple Harrys included. If the Death Star set can include three Luke Skywalkers, I'm sure LEGO would include about three Harry Potters in a Diagon Alley set of comparable size. Presumably a Year 1 version with short legs, a Year 3 version with mid-legs, and a Year 6 version with regular legs. If LEGO does something like that, I would hope they don't do the same for Ron and Hermione, otherwise most of the minifigure lineup would end up being different variants of the trio, which would be unfortunate.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Currently, the only things I don't own since the reboot are the D2C Castle, microscale Diagon Alley (not really interested in microscale, so I ended up buying the Hogwarts founders and Ollivander separately for a good price) and the Brickheadz (they don't really appeal to me) I own all the other sets, including the advent calendar, the full CMF, the polybag and the Bricktober pack. I can already tell that this year is going to be an expensive one, and that's without seeing any set pictures. Assuming that the D2C is in fact a minifigure scale Diagon Alley, it will almost certainly become my second D2C set purchase (The first being the Stranger Things set). The only set this year that I probably won't be immediately interested in picking up is the Hedwig model, though I might change my mind if the pictures impress me enough.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The new hint on Instagram: "An iconic scene in the underground will be part of 75978". Presumably that must mean the Gringotts vaults will be included.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    A training dummy from the Room of Requirement set is on Instagram. Nothing too remarkable, but hopefully it's an indication that pictures of the rest of the minifigures and the main build will show up soon. Nevermind, it looks like it's not real. Hopefully the actual set has a better looking training dummy. Still hoping that LEGO reveals the sets soon so that all the confusion and speculation on them can end, at least for a while.

    The otter patronus is on Instagram now. Looks pretty great. I wonder if that mold could be reused for a ferret later on?

    Not sure what that hint could mean. The Vanishing Cabinet perhaps?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The latest hint is the inscription on Hermione's Time-Turner. Presumably that means a POA Hermione will be in the D2C, either with another printed Time-Turner or an actual accessory.

    It appears that the new Harley Quinn minifigure is on Instagram now. Looks neat. It appears to be on eBay.

    CMFs for former themes

    I'd personally like to see an Adventure Time CMF. There was a ton of potential for the license, but the Ideas set didn't appeal to me and there were only 4 minifigures between all the Dimensions packs, so there's still a ton of characters from that series that haven't been made yet.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm not sure if that Instagram leaker is reliable, but assuming he is, then based off his clues and statements, I'm guessing that the remaining 7 CMF figures should be: Ron Weasley (obviously, though I'm not sure which version would be used) Hermione Granger (same) Rita Skeeter (mentioned by the leaker) Lucius Malfoy (mentioned by the leaker, and would be a second Slytherin in the series, which would fulfill the 'at least two minifigures from each house' statement given) Gilderoy Lockhart (mentioned by the leaker, and would be a second Ravenclaw in the series, as the leaker stated he's not counting ghosts) Nymphadora Tonks (mentioned by the leaker, and would be a second Hufflepuff in the series) Madam Pomfrey (Seems like the most likely candidate for including the new hood/hatpiece that was mentioned)

    LEGO Minifigures licensed series

    Technically only half licensed, but one idea I've thought of is a 20 figure CMF series encompassing all four of the LEGO Movies, with 5 from each. The LEGO Movie: 1. Wyldstyle (Robot Disguise) 2. Michelangelo the Artist 3. Wild Will 4. Odd Ollie 5. Robo Demolitionist The LEGO Batman Movie: 6. El Murcurielago Batman 7. Barbara Gordon (Purple Dress) 8. Samurai (with Gleek) 9. Agent Smith 10. Gremlin The LEGO Ninjago Movie: 11. Fuchsia Ninja 12. Shark Army General Number 1 (Burned) 13. Shark Army Hammerhead (Burned) 14. Shark Army Narwhal 15. GPL Tech Terri The LEGO Movie 2: 16. Holiday Party Emmet 17. Aquaman (Movie) 18. Alfred Pennyworth (Apocalypseburg) 19. Velma Dinkley (Apocalypseburg) 20. Larry Poppins

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The CMF series is looking great so far! Still wish it was a 22 minifigure series like the previous one, but there should be plenty of opportunities for more Fantastic Beasts characters to show up next year. I'm pretty sure it's a key.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Super Mario sets? How unexpected. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for updates on the sets. There are many possibilities for what LEGO could make.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    This seems like a promising lineup of sets so far. I am surprised to see the Room of Requirement as its own set instead of being part of the Astronomy Tower, but the new Patronuses sound great. Hopefully it can still connect to the other castle sections. The Forbidden Forest was one I was predicting, and I am glad that two centaurs will be included instead of just one. I wonder if they will be identical to each other, or have differences. Perhaps this increases the chance of Firenze appearing in a set or CMF series later on. Presumably the Umbridge will be different from the Bricktober version. The Privet Drive set is interesting and unexpected, as a Year 2 set among otherwise Year 5-6 sets. I am curious to see if the car will be a different build from the Whomping Willow set, or just the same exact one. Hopefully the Dobby minifigure at least has a different expression to set it apart from the CMF version. I'm a little disappointed that Fred and George are absent. Hopefully they show up elsewhere. The Astronomy Tower was another set that I expected to see, and it should look great with the previous castle sections released. I'm also glad to see older versions of Neville and Draco finally. Lavender Brown is also a good addition. Presumably the Slughorn is a new variant. Between those four sets, that's 22 minifigures so far. Hopefully the remaining sets include the Ministry Battle and/or the Inferi Cave.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Comparing to what they're charging for previous sets, I guess those price points would translate to roughly: $19.99 $29.99 $69.99 $99.99 $39.99 $39.99 Advent Calendar Presumably the biggest set is the Astronomy Tower, as I can't think of many sets that would fit the price point. I'm curious to find out what the second largest set is. I'm still hoping for a new Burrow. If last year is any indication, here's probably going to be a couple more sets released a month or two after the others. I can only hope that it won't be too long before more information surfaces.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I agree that Year 2 Polyjuice variants of the main trio would be great to see in the CMF. They are variants from a scene that probably wouldn't fit into a future set and would be more interesting than most other possible variants, allowing the option to display Harry and Ron as Crabbe and Goyle. I also agree that mid legs would add a lot to those figures if included in the series. Also worth noting that the Dean Thomas minifigure seems to be a Year 1/2 version (He only seems to wear the scarf in the first two movies, and the Gryffindor flag seems to specifically be from the Quidditch match scene in the first one), so that would be further precedent for mid legs on noticeably taller first/second year students. Rita Skeeter is another good choice for the CMF. If James and Lily Potter ever get minifigures, it would have to be in a CMF series, but I'm not sure how likely their inclusion would be. The Dursleys might be candidates, if their house doesn't get made as a set in the future. It would also be good to get the other three house ghosts at some point. Madam Pomfrey is extremely likely, considering the Hospital Wing is already included in the Clocktower set. Kreacher would be a good choice, but he could also easily be included in a Grimmauld Place set. Fred and George seem more likely to appear in sets or advent calendars, but perhaps Percy could be in the CMF.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I was picturing a Hogmeade themed advent calendar focusing more on the outside environment of the village for its backdrop and builds rather than the inside of a particular building, though it could be both like how the interior and exterior of the Hogwarts Castle were represented in the 2019 calendar. Seeing as most of the individual Hogsmeade locations had rather small roles and aren't very notable on their own (at least in the movies), I could see LEGO doing a Hogsmeade D2C that features several of the locations, (Probably the Hog's Head, The Three Broomsticks, and Honeyduke's; the Shrieking Shack probably warrants getting its own set eventually) I am especially curious to see what minifigures will make it into this years sets. The previous two years included a good variety and yet there are still many more that could be made. 2018 featured 62 different minifigures (31 from 7 regular retail sets, 22 from the CMF, 4 from the D2C, 4 from the Bricktober set and 1 from the GWP set) 2019 featured 32 new minfigures (28 from 7 regular retail sets, and 4 from the Advent Calendar, not counting the calendar's Architect statue or the Mcgonagall with the alternate face printing removed) If another wave of 7 regular retail sets is released this year with a comparable output of new minifigures, that would suggest roughly 30 new minifigures from those, give or take a couple. Adding a CMF series that would presumably have 22 minifigures like the previous one would increase the estimated total to about 52. Depending on other factors (potential D2C, GWP, books, advent calendar), this year could feature a number of new minifigures comparable to 2018's number. Considering how many characters/variants from the later movies were passed over by LEGO, that would be the ideal scenario.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I eagerly await any new information regarding the upcoming sets. Looking over the previous Wizarding World set waves, there is some stuff to note. 2018 had 7 regular retail sets (5 HP and 2 FB), 1 D2C set, and a CMF series. 2019 had 7 regular retail sets and an advent calendar. Based on that, my current prediction is that 2020 will have 7 sets, a CMF series, an advent calendar, and possibly a D2C set. Also worth noting the price points for the regular retail sets over the past two years: 2018: 75950 - $15, 75951 - $20, 75956 - $40, 75952 - $50, 75953 - $70, 75955 - $80, 75954 - $100 2019: 75945 - $20, 75965 - $20, 75946 - $30, 75957 - $40, 75958 - $50, 75947 - $60, 75948 - $90 I am assuming that there will be no more Fantastic Beasts sets until the next movie is released in 2021, but as someone who generally enjoyed the second movie, I wouldn't mind seeing some FB characters in the CMF series again. Assuming the same ratio of 16 HP/6 FB characters is kept, my picks would be Young Dumbledore, Nicholas Flamel, Nagini, Leta Lestrange, Theseus Scamander, and Yusef Kama. The 2019 Advent Calendar was almost entirely based on Year 1, with the statue being from Year 2 and Flitwick being Year 3. I am hoping that a future calendar will be centered on Year 3 (Hogsmeade themed) or Year 4 (Yule Ball themed) Whatever LEGO decides to do, if they keep up the same level of quality, I will probably buy all the sets regardless.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    While I wasn't expecting LEGO to release a Stranger Things set, I am certainly quite pleased that I won't have to resort to piecing together purist customs for most of the main characters (though the absence of Steve is annoying)

    I saw Avengers Endgame twice. I very much enjoyed it both times.
