    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)

    Marvel Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I would definitely be interested in more Iron Man armors. Hopefully LEGO has something planned for the future.

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

    All the sets look great! I'll definitely end up buying all of them. Definitely a great surprise to wake up to on my birthday!

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    The new Commissioner Gordon minifigure is on Instagram. Looks good, though personally, I think I'll stick with the LEGO Batman Movie version.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    I'm definitely a fan of the minifigures of the champions. Between these and the new Buckbeak and Patronus, this wave is really shaping up to empty my wallet on release day!

    I just saw Captain Marvel. Overall, I definitely enjoyed it.

    I hope there is an advent calendar, because that could feature some great characters and builds!

    What was the last movie you watched?

    The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part I thought that it was totally awesome, and a worthy sequel! I would definitely be supportive of a third movie if it maintained this level of quality. Hopefully the movie can perform well at the box office.

    Interesting. I hope it won't be long before more details surface. That sounds like a great lineup of sets.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Last Sunday, I finally found and bought the Ultrakatty and Warrior Lucy set and the Sweet Mayhem's Systar Starship at Target at 20% off after numerous unsuccessful attempts at finding TLM2 sets on shelves. The Ultrakatty is a great build with the flexibility and alternate faces adding a lot of value for play and display, and the DUPLO Alien is fun as well. Hopefully the polybag with the DUPLO Alien variant will show up at the stores so I can add a few more to the collection. I got the Systar Starship with both the regular discount and $17 worth of gift cards used on top of that, which brought its price down to about $40. At that kind of price range, I found the set well worth it, but it the build feels a bit small in-hand to completely justify the full price of $69.99. I feel like the set could have benefited from having either a lower price point or a couple unique minifigures added. But the build still looks amazing and is very detailed and playable, so I would still recommend it, though probably not at full price. There are a number of other sets I plan on purchasing from this theme, and I am expecting a few that I ordered online to arrive any day now. Overall a promising start to things. Hopefully the quality of the builds continues into the second wave.

    Just saw Bumblebee. Certainly a major improvement on the previous live action Transformers films, and I would like to see more movies under this new direction.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Polybag set 30529 is apparently Mini Master-Building Emmet, which has 49 pieces and a 3-in-1 build, and yet another Emmet minifigure. Kinda "meh" compared to most of the other TLM2 polybag sets in my opinion. I wonder how many polybag sets will be made for this theme total.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    The Apocalypseburg D2C looks great! It's certainly better than how I originally pictured it would look. I also picked up the Metalbeard polybag at Walmart. It's a fun little set that feels like a great value for the $3.99 price, especially with the 3-in-1 feature of the build.

    Warner Brothers' MonsterVerse

    Both the trailers for Godzilla: King of the Monsters have gotten me hyped! It already looks like quite the improvement on the previous movie (which I enjoyed) I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this when it comes out. Now if only LEGO could make Godzilla sets...

    The Lego Batman Movie 2

    I'm guessing this won't be coming out until around 2021, but I'm definitely excited that a sequel is coming! There are still many villains they could include that weren't in the first movie. Mad Hatter is the most obvious choice. Other villains that I would like to see used include Black Mask, Hush, Ventriloquist, Lady Shiva, Copperhead, Roxy Rocket, Ten-Eyed Man, Penny Plunderer, Doctor Double X, and of course, the Music Meister! Villains such as Firefly, Ra's al Ghul, and Deadshot could also show up with new designs from their DC Super Heroes versions. I wonder if the Justice League would have a larger role this time around. I hope that Samurai and Gleek appear again so that they can actually be included in a set this time. Of course, I fully expect to see more wacky Batsuits and Bat-Vehicles in the sequel as well.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    It looks like an eBay listing revealed that polybag set 30528 is Mini Master-Building Metalbeard, with 42 pieces and a 3-in-1 build.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    It appears that a green baby dinosaur with the same pattern as the blue one will be showing up at some point, judging from a new picture that has popped up online. I'm guessing that it will be included in the CMF series as an accessory.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Just saw Crimes of Grindelwald. I definitely enjoyed it overall, and it leaves me anticipating the next movie.
