    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’m not convinced that the $250 set is Gringott’s because Gringott’s alone wouldn’t need that many pieces in the current scale and if it came with other buildings, it wouldn’t be enough stores to keep the 2 darker buildings, 1 bright pattern going. Combine this with Bevins info on two separate extensions, I think the $130 set will be Gringott’s to keep it affordable while the $250 will be Leaky Cauldron/Borgin & Burkes as one baseplate, and Madame Maxine and Eeylops as the other baseplate since the images I’ve seen, they both share a purple exterior. These would reserve the more obscure shops to the hardcore fans who are willing to shell out while appeasing casuals who just want Gringott’s. The $110 will probably be the Bell Towers and the rest is fruitless to speculate on since they can do sets on any of the 8 films. Really great that leak season has started so soon.

    Yeah I’m hoping it isn’t just DA and that maybe a Borgin and Burkes or Leaky Cauldron is in there as well. $250 is more than half of DA, and while Gringotts is one of the bigger buildings, it shouldn’t be more than half of DA big. Personally as is rn, DA is in my top 5 favorite sets but with Gringott’s can definitely knock the Ewok Village from first.

    Sweet thanks for clarifying and thanks for the leak! Was worried for a moment that my wallet would have to endure a second wave as this one is a monster.

    So are all these sets dropping in Winter?
  5. I’m hoping for 4-5, but I’m not holding my breath. The Soulless One being $80 had 3 minifigs and the Night Buzzard was $70 and also had 3 minifigs, so I’m keeping my expectations in check. I really don’t like this new trend of less figures, but it is what is. Just hoping for something new like an Endor Luke.

    Just looking at the QQS color swaps, I still think the Pink looks best and makes the set look more balanced. The pink looks much better irl as well, the pictures don’t do it justice. The WWW sticks out like a sore thumb without the pink, and really doesn’t look like a part of set. Also the red contrasts with the pink the best. I feel like people will start warming up to the pink once Gringott’s gets added, which would be another bright set to balance it out on the left. I think Legos plan was to put two drab buildings in between each of the brighter buildings to create cohesion.

    From what I can make out, these sets look much been than I was anticipating. Might pick up the Ravenclaw pack, not only because I’m a Ravenclaw but for the new Choo and the Flitwick and try to incorporate into the empty portions of the Great Hall tower, since it’s the more PS based portion of the classroom.
  8. Imperial Shuttle looks so good for $80, really happy the way that came out, considering that the 2018 X Wing was the same price, you just get so much more. I might pick this up if the figures are good, can’t go wrong at that price. X Wing for $50 also looks fantastic, I have the 2018 version so I have no need to pick it up. I think the Tie is the worst of the bunch, but it’s still a good deal for $40. These sets really remind me of the sets of old, instead of obsessing over every detail which should be reserved for UCS sets, they get the general idea and are affordable.

    I’m really hoping for some sets from the earlier movies, not to keen on DH sets really besides Gringott’s. It’s a good movie but nothing visually appealing to make an intriguing set or many interesting minifigs outside of Narcissa. Fingers crossed for a Second Task or a Chamber of Secrets.

    Mike Zeroh only gets shielded because of the fandom menace and his clickbait titles that work the algorithm. As much as I can’t stand the fandom menace, they stick together extremely well and that’s why it seems like he gets off free. Now there are legit concerns about the ST, personally I’m kinda in the middle, but these guys just run on pure anger and YouTubers capitalize on it, because much like politics, everybody just wants to bask in their echo chamber and worship the EU which was way worst than the ST even if it had its bright spots (Legacy). People want to hear that they are right, not the actual truth.Outside that bubble, everybody know Zeroh is hack. And I don’t think this hive mind thankfully exists in the Lego community which has been so great as a whole, so Bevin will lose his credibility much quicker if he is wrong.

    January Totally get the skepticism, but he does have a solid following, it’s not like he just made an account like a certain someone. And there’s always some sets that fly under the radar like the the Knight Bus or the Hogwarts Express. Personally I’m more inclined to believe it than normal.

    I don’t know how reliable this guy or his source is but Bevin’s Bricks has said that Gringott’s and an additional DA add on will be releasing on the first of next year. Exciting news if true.
  13. Any word on if there will be double points in November like last year?
  14. Depends on the set really. Like I went to pick up the UCS Falcon and it sold out very quickly and there was a long line outside the Lego Store at opening. Betrayal At Cloud City and Imperial Star Destroyer I went a couple hours later and there were still plenty in stock. The most recent one I went to was to pick up Diagon Alley, long line right before opening but there was plenty of stock thankfully. So my prediction judging my the optimistic reaction of the Cantina, is that they’ll be a good line at opening but I think Lego will be stocked pretty well, knowing that everyone is stuck at home and want something to do.
  15. I’m very curious to see how they do the Imperial Shuttle at $80. Might pick it up if it’s decent and has good minifigs. Is this wave disappointing? Definitely so when it comes in regards to set selection. But there are some positives. With smaller waves, it becomes so much easier to collect and with lower prices, it’s going to be even better. I’ve always believed that Lego put too much details in the system scale sets, in the builds and minifigs alike, so I’m glad to see more of a difference between system and UCS sets. These aren’t black series, screen accurate props it’s Lego and that form is what makes it fun. That’s what I liked about the 2006 style sets so I’m glad the old way of thinking is back.
