    Can you please tell us the set names by chance?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    I can definitely see us only getting four sets this year. OoTP and HBP largely take place at Hogwarts. So if I’m gonna guess it will be The Astronomy Tower, The Burrow, Ministry Of Magic, and maybe a Forbidden Forest ala Aragog or Patronum and you have covered pretty much everything. Fingers crossed for a D2C Diagon Alley that has elements from the three movies it was featured in.
  3. Hey everyone, I was wondering do you think I should hold out and see if a new Jabba’s Palace comes out in the next couple of years or should I buy the most recent iteration off EBay?

    That’s the hairpiece I used for Wormtail as well. The only problem is close up, the eyebrows don’t really match the color of the hair. But if your looking at from a distance and have him on display, it definitely works. Here’s a pic: https://imgur.com/a/F7KSL3oThis comes from a guy who always likes to keep the minifigs in their original form: but Pettigrew’s hair is just so off it needed to be changed. I know a lot of people complained about Sirius Black’s which was fine imo, but this was way worse.
  5. Yeah the Supremacy would be an amazing UCS! It’s easily the best ship design from the ST because it’s original and it has a unique shape. That or the Resistance Bomber but the $100 set suffices.
  6. Love the Knights Of Ren minifigs, some of personal favorites in quite a while! Kylo Ren’s shuttle is definitely a must buy now. As for the Klatoonian, this maybe a long shot from happening but a Master Builder Series Jabba’s Palace would be amazing! It’s probably an extra from the Episode 9 skiff.

    The horntail is not the bad, I have it perched on the tower next to the Great Hall and it looks really nice there.

    Just got back from the Lego store and they had all the sets in stock! So happy that I didn’t have to be on the look out for weeks and wasting gas to track them down like last year. I’ll wait a month extra if they are stocked as they were today!

Harry, OOTP Sirius Black, Lucius, Death Eater $40 The Burrow: Remake Of 2011 version with Harry, Ginny, Arthur, Molly, Greyback, Bellatrix. Maybe a little smaller. $60 Astronomy Tower: This would include Room Of Requirements, Umbridge’s Office, Slug Club hopefully with the hourglass, and the you know the launchpad. Greenhouse side build. Harry, Draco(black suit), Crab, Goyle, Sprout, Umbridge, Luna, Neville, Snape, Lavender. $100 Diagon Alley D2C: Gringott’s, Weasley Wizarding Wheezes, Flourish and Blotts, and Ollivander’s Wand Shop. Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Hagrid, Lockhart (Blue attire), 2x goblins, Lucius, Ollivander, Death Eaters 2x. $300 CMF 1) Petunia Dursley 2) Vernon Dursley 3) Dudley Dursley 4) Kingsley 5) Tonks 6) James Potter 7) Lily Potter baby Potter 8) Lockhart gold attire pixies 9) Lupin in the tan suit 10) Centaur 11) Harry (Slug Club) 12) Hermione (Deathly Hallows Red Dress) 13) Ron (Quidditch Captain) 14) Luna (Lion headdress) 15) Colin Creevy with Camera 16) Slughorn Couch 17) Katie Bell 18) Narcissa Malfoy

    Oh yay we moved three pages there must be some concrete news today..... Sigh There is no point in complaining about the release date because we have no power in changing in it. Just because you wrote a whole diatribe on Eurobricks doesn’t mean Lego will magically get stock... I’m from the US and I honestly don’t care at all (thank you Tool for teaching me patience!). Buy another Lego set to keep you busy, I just bought the Tantive IV and it’s the best Star Wars set in years... Ninjago City is another beautiful build. Lego is putting out so many great sets across all themes the last two years and it’s crazy. Go explore and August will be here in no time.

    Me personally: 1) Clocktower: Gorgeous asymmetrical exterior, probably my favorite Hogwarts piece thus far. The Yule Ball Portion with the tables and dance area was really well done along with an awesome Dumbledore’s Office. DADA and Prefects Bathroom were great bonuses as well. For $90 it’s a steal. 2) Hagrid’s Hut: Another beautiful set and most screen accurate incarnation thus far. Buckbeak looks great, McNair and Fudge were awesome surprises. 3) Expecto Patronum: STAG PATRONUS LITERALLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOLD OF ALL TIME WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY? 4) Knight Bus: Had the OG one when I was a kid and I’m a sucker for purple bricks. I think the driver is my favorite minifig in this wave... he looks hysterical 5) Rise Of Voldemort: Had the original one of this one as well... a little let down because of its size. Minifigs are great and it’s still a must have. 6) Beauxbatons Carriage: It’s a good set but it just does not do much for me besides the minifigs. Just kind of unnecessary, especially how we got all the Tasks except the Second. Good to get a proper Fleur love the new hat combo 7) Hungarian Horntail: The dragon itself is fine but the tent is so useless and feels like I’m getting nothing for $35. Will pick this one up only for First Task Harry and the Golden Egg. Thinking of using my VIP points

    Eh I don't mind an August release to be fair. Especially if there is plenty of stock go around this time. I'll just buy the Tantive IV to keep me busy till then.

    The difference between Harry Potter and Star Wars and why one is evergreen and while the other is not is because there is a lot more variety in Star Wars. Let’s face the music, Harry Potter mainly takes place in Hogwarts, with other notable locations being The Burrow, Diagon Alley, and Ministry Of Magic. That’s four locations with three of them being done in one set. In comparison to Star Wars which has countless amount of planets like Endor which alone can produce 4 sets and Tatooine which had 5 sets in the last two years. Then there are all the vehicles. HP has what the Knight Bus, Hogwarts Express, and Ford Angelia through eight films. But I could pull the ARC-170, Jedi Interceptor, and Invisible Hand just from the opening scene of Revenge of The Sith! And then there’s all the Legends material they can always draw from and sources like video games and comics. Remember HP is only once a year where Star Wars is like 3. Of course there will be some repeats. Actually I’m okay with HP ending in about three years from now... Finish off 5/6, 7/8, and do one final sweep to pick up sets like Chamber Of Secrets, Shrieking Shack and the Second Task. I feel like we got the essentials down, no need for sets like Xenophilius house, they wouldn’t even sell. Maybe after HP is done revive Indiana Jones or the Adventurers sets. Resurrect HP in about 8 years.

    1) Yes sets usually have a shelf life of two years so I think they will continue to sell them till 2020 2) Highly doubt they will add another part to the D2C. I think that was supposed to be the be all, end all Hogwarts where the System scale one would be more modular and up to personal choice. If you are talking about System Scale then definitely yes. We got the Clocktower/Yule Ball this year, I think we will be getting the Astronomy Tower next year, probably featuring the Room Of Requirements, Umbridge’s Office, and Slug Club if I had to guess. 3) I think the chances of getting a third wave are pretty high. Like 90%. My main concern was getting the second wave and since we got that, I’m not worried till after they finish Year 4

    Lockhart has six different attires. He could have his own Bricktober pack. Red, Blue, Gold, Green, Pink, and Duel Attire. They wouldn’t do the pink one for COS or Blue for Diagon. I’m just dying for a Lockhart minifig already! So instead of Riddle and Ginny, maybe Madame Pomfrey and Igor?
