    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah I really hope we got a Borgin & Burke’s and/or Gringott’s. If we are talking about the initial waves, this year is my favorite one but it’s always nice to have a strong D2C or retail exclusive to round off everything. Extremely strong CMF and D2C really bolstered the 2020 offering as a whole which wasn’t my favorite initial wave.

    Yeah I’m scouring through brick link looking through the set inventories of my old sets I had as a kid like Adventurers and I can’t find anything. Thanks for confirming my insanity

    This is kinda of an odd question but am I misremembering that the 2001 Dueling Club set had the crescent moon stickers? I always remembered in my bins of pieces that there was a piece with that sticker. Because if there is, I’m thinking of modding the Great Hall portion of the Chamber of Secrets to be exclusively for the Dueling Club.

    I get a real kick out of people who think the sets will sell poorly simply because they don’t like them.

    Nah, I disagree. The Clocktower also had a very lackluster interior. DADA classroom was barely recognizable along with the infirmary. Bottom level was empty space. The only good rooms were the Yule Ball and Prefect’s Bathroom. Astronomy Tower had another potions classroom, Slughorn’s office which was a bland office and didn’t have an hourglass piece. The Astronomy Class and the Herbology was great. The spaces of the 2018-2020 sets were used for inconsequential moments in the film where these sets do the film’s biggest scenes justice. And now they aren’t limited to tiny nooks and crannies to make the exterior look good, so we can get bigger scenes like the Chamber of Secrets. Another big plus is getting cool moulds and animals. The Great Hall had Pixies, Basilisk, an owl, a snake so many great accessories. I’m happy both lines exist because the people who like the architecture of Hogwarts can have their sets, where people who are much more concerned about the interiors like me can have our own sets. It’s genius honestly

    My ranking would be 1) Chamber of Secrets: This is probably my new favorite HP set of all time. It’s the full package, awesome interior with equally awesome minfigures. That slide play feature is incredible. So much goodness in this set, I could write a dissertation on it. Insta-buy 2) Girl’s Bathroom: Another two iconic scenes in Chamber and as someone who thinks Chamber is the best HP book, these sets are right up my alley. Poly juice Hermoine and Crabbe and Goyle are great minifigs. Insta-buy 3) First Flying Lesson: I’m surprised this set is so far up, I had no plans of buying this till I saw it today. The exterior is beautiful and it faithfully recreates the PS’s scene. Especially love that statue and that updated Hooch is a must get. Another throwback to the 2001 set but done with a modern twist. Insta-buy 4) Forbidden Corridor: This set would be higher but the interior of this one is a bit lackluster, though I appreciate the inclusion of Devil’s Snare. Wish this set came with the Chess Set minifigs. I really do hope we get Winged Keys, a smaller Chess, and the Mirror of Erised next year because it would be weird just to have one challenge. Buy 5) Hogsmeade: Good set, but I just personally don’t care for it all. I like the darker hues of the prelims better. Minifigs are just really meh. Skip 6) Chess Set: Decent set but again I just don’t care for it. Exclusive minifigs are definitely getting bricklinked. Skip 7) Fawkes: It’s just Hedwig P2, a bit lazy but I get it because Hedwig sold like crazy. Skip 8) Buildable figures: Why exactly do these exist? I own these minifigs, I don’t care to see them at a larger scale. I really wish we got another Hogwarts extension at the $120 mark with the Challenges, full blown Dumbledore’s Office, some parts of the Forbidden Forest, something like that.

    Yeah I get that, it’s just me personally everything else is too good in this that it doesn’t bother me as much for being a remake. It’s a vast improvement over the 2018 imo. Definitely would have loved Pomfrey, but Lego Hogwarts Infirmary doesn’t sound like the most appealing set to kids.

    OH MY GOD!!! THE GREAT HALL IS A LOVE LETTER TO LOCKHART! Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom is perfect along with the painting of Lockhart, you also get his office as well with the wig! Dueling Club as well, nice one! This is amazing!!!!!!

    Eh even if we just get one big set with Devil’s snare, Room of Winged Keys, Chess and Mirror of Erised, that’s cool with me. I just want one more to round off the group.

    Sure the D2C is disappointing, but my expectations are met so I’m not devastated in any way. I just hope we get some more Anniversary style Hogwarts sets next year and aren’t just a one off. I’m honestly fine just buying 3 sets this year, glad I don’t have to spend so much cash compared to last year, even though it was well spent.

    Wasn’t initially excited by news of the Chess Set, but seeing these blurry photos kinda has piqued my interest. I’ll probably still won’t buy it because I have nowhere to logically put it, but I think this is going to be a spiffy set.

    I hope you’re right as well, it’s the only D2C I could imagine buying besides Gringott’s. Paired with Chamber of Secrets, Forbidden Corridor, and Moaning Myrtle’s Bathroom, it would be a more complete homage to the 2001-2002 Hogwarts Anniversary Sets. Only thing I would add is an expanded Dumbledore’s Office if it’s not in the Chamber of Secrets set.

    Why is it so hard for you guys to keep your political opinions to yourselves? There’s so many other places to talk about it, why here? For crying out loud...

    If it has a dragon, it’s definitely an 11/10 set for me. It doesn’t even have to be something big, just something small to acknowledge it’s existence is perfectly fine with me. One similar in size of the one in the museum of Ninjago City Gardens would be great.
