    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    It’s probably delayed to go with the January 2022 sets which is totally cool with me.
  2. For me personally, I have no interest in any of the 18+ sets. Since I already own the 2016 Death Star which did the Trash Compactor just fine, I have no interest in it. Same with Yoda’s Hut, I already own the $30 version and paired it with the X Wing that came out that same year. The only thing that would convince me otherwise would be having the cave but there’s no Vader so that’s unlikely. Also kinda dumb to have the “do or do not” quote without the X Wing is trying to lift. But that’s just my take on it. I’ll still buy the Death Trooper packs, The Mandalorian sets have been killer.

    I think for a GWP, it’s pretty great if it were an actual retail set, then it would be held to a different standard. I really love the bunk bed builds and might give us a glimpse of how the Hospital wing might look but with different colors. To me it’s easily the most useful GWP and not just a simple throwaway. Also getting 4 wizard cards is pretty dope as well.

    Definitely excited for the Hospital Wing and that were finally getting a Madame Pomfrey! Also love that 2021 Hogwarts line is expanding, looks like I’m going to take down my 2018-2020 line to make some more room. Only complaint is price $40 for a Hospital Wing seems kinda odd for a bunch of beds wished there was something else alongside it like maybe the Divination classroom or the Boggart closet, like how Fluffy Encounter had the temporary DADA classroom. Don’t need a huge infirmary but I’ll reserve judgement till photos leak. Fingers crossed for Skelligrow. As for the Moments sets, I could care less for both of them. But having the DADA classroom be Moody’s is such an odd pick. Thought it was weird in the Clocktower, now it’s just baffling, easily the worst DADA classroom.

    As much as I would love another Diagon Alley Expansion, the minifigs on that set aren’t the most thrilling so I would go with the D2C Second Task at around $300 personally. The trade off between not completing the street for all the new minifigs is worth it to me. Builds would include Dumstrang Ship, the three piers and a nice underwater build where everyone is bound up. Minifigs would be Gilly Harry, Shark Krum, 2nd task Cedric, 2nd task Fleur, Ron, Hermoine, Gabriella, Karkaroff, Barty Crouch Sr, Mad Eye Moody, Dumbledore, Neville, Rita Skeeter, 3x Grindylows, 2x Mermaids. That’s my dream HP set right there.
  6. To add onto this, not only would I love a downscaled Naboo Starfighter but I would love a downscaled Sith Infiltrator and give The Phantom Menace some much needed love. For minifigs I would love to see Maul, Qui Gonn, Little Ani, and Shmi.

    Personally I’m not a big fan of the D2C Quidditch Pitch, would be an easy skip for me. If the next D2C isn’t Diagon Alley related, I would love to see a full blown Whomping Willow with a larger Ford Anglia build. Have the knob feature that allows it shake and cheery blossom leaves to switch in and out. You could have Werewolf Lupin and Padfoot as an exclusive figures.

    Tbf, I like yourself love the new 2021 modular Hogwarts but it’s not very clear to which line it belongs to. In the instruction manual when it shows the combined Hogwarts it only shows Chamber, Fluffy, and Bathroom and doesn’t have a place for the First Flying Lesson. It doesn’t have any of the Sand Green or Grey pieces so it can go anywhere one wants.

    Are they scarfs, they always struck me as bookmarks.

    While I personally don’t like the buildable objects, if they do sell well and help keep the Harry Potter line alive, then I’ll accept it as a “necessary evil”. I’d much rather have a couple of good sets that round out what we’re missing then having no sets at all. Because if we are excluding DH since Lego doesn’t seem so keen on making, you could fit in a singular wave. 1) Shrieking Shack 2) 2nd Task/Dumstrang Ship 3) Ministry Battle 4) Inferi Cave 5) Gringott’s/Borgin & Burke’s D2C I see the buildable objects as a way for Lego to keep an imo, not an evergreen theme evergreen. Throw in a bunch of remakes and more of the new modular Hogwarts extensions as they have been doing, they have content for the next five years at least. Maybe eventually they’ll throw in some more less likely sets like 12 Grimmauld’s Place to test the waters. Also means more spread out purchases for me, which is totally fine since there are so many other themes to collect as well. Honestly I’m just thankful for the first three years and while I thought the 2021 wave didn’t stack up as well to waves prior, I really do love the new modular Hogwarts.

    I don’t know how to properly phrase this but while I love some of the individual builds like Hedwig or the chocolate frog and the card, the whole thing just doesn’t come off as a Lego set. It feels like a bust and feels way too smooth. It definitely does look better than what I was imagining but it still just not for me. Wish they released a Gringott’s instead.
  12. For the MBS do you all think we could see a remake of the Sandcrawler from 2013 if they are afraid of touching Jabba’s Palace/Sail Barge due to Princess Leia? Even though I prefer something ROTJ related, a remake of the Sandcrawler would pair nicely with the MBS Mos Eisley Cantina.

    Thanks for sharing the video, I thought it was very interesting watch especially about Quirrell’s classroom originally being in the Forbidden Corridor set. That explains the sticker with all the hanging parchment in that random place. All it needed was a big cauldron and that iguana that Quirrell was holding and it would of been spot on representation. Now I have a good excuse to buy the Jungle Explorer minifigure. I might make those mods myself for my castle. As for Gringott’s, it’s incredibly disappointing that they have no plans. I love the Diagon Alley set but it sure looks kinda empty without its centerpiece.
  14. As long as the MBS is something from ROTJ, I’ll be estatic since it’s my favorite Star Wars film. Endor Bunker, Jabba’s Palace, Jabba’s Sail Barge, a remake of Ewok Village, all of them are tantalizing options. But I think Jabba’s Palace is the one I want most. As much as I condone Gonk violence, I would kill for an updated 8D8 and I would love to see the droid torture room. I oddly love that scene so much. Also would love to see the entrance door where we see Luke Skywalker in his robes for the first time. Bunker is awesome too but would need some side builds to justify the $350 like some trees or an AT ST. But yeah I’m stoked for the next MBS
  15. I’ll give it being the most iconic Prequel vehicle but just because it’s iconic doesn’t mean it will translate well as a UCS set. Maybe I didn’t say it clear enough but what I mean is that without the troops, the cargo hold looks extremely barren and empty which brings it down quite a bit in my book. Having clone troopers really would help round out the set and give it the depth it lacks if it was minifig scale . But because it’s so big, adding troopers wouldn’t help that problem much since they are out of scale. So you’re left with a husk of a set. Even having the doors close all the way would have fixed that part, but because it’s an AoTC it wouldn’t be canonical accurate. To me the troopers are just as important as any other feature of the Gunship that make it feel truly impressive and why it should of not been a UCS set. It’s a Low Altitude Assault Transport after all, it’s in the name of the ship that it transports troops.The ARC 170 and Clone Turbo Tank doesn’t suffer from this problem because the former only holds a couple of pilots while the later has coverings.
