    Good reminder that “confirmed” means officially announced from TLG. Anything and everyone outside of that is a rumor.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    In the USA, Walmart and target have already retired Hogwarts Express and great hall. I believe whomping willow now too from what I saw pre Covid. Yes it’s first wave, but it’s just how it works. It last much longer than previous first waves in other themes. Shop@Home still has them available which is odd considering normally it works the other way around as to who retires what first. Amazon also still has first wave at 80-100% costs. I wasn’t fortune enough to snag express or great hall at $20. I’m sure someone arm swiped the whole shelf.
  5. I just called and asked. It is only for a single piece.
  6. I said that. The rep on the phone said that because it was a bird that was in some of the disney princess sets, it was still labeled as a "license" from LEGO's standpoint. I pointed out that the bird is in the Bookshop, not disney princess though. I think they might refer to the overall mold though. Not 100% sure.
  7. I just got off the phone (USA based) and was told that the blue bird is not available for sale due to licensing. I'm a little jealous of those of you who are able to have blue birds.

    Winnie the Pooh isn't actually my cup-of-tea, but my wife is a huge obsessed fan of the brand. As someone who likes LEGO products & happens to be married to someone who believes "its just a toy and you have enough already" I'm planning on buying my wife her very first set, I view it as a huge win for that reason alone.
  9. I am unable to find the blue bird from bookshop on brickset or parts and pieces. Can anyone share the number for the item?

    Almost like a voice speaking from the dust (regarding LotR)? Minas Tirith... still the greatest tragedy of the modern age

    15 yrs is a long time in LEGO time. Builds have gotten so much more detailed in the last 5 years, let alone 15. The ship from concept art, actual films, as well as the latest book that was put out (which has some awesome art all around) would provide a much better direction than what I view as a fairly cartoony and simple set that LEGO created. it does align with the overall vibe of the previous release, but I would expect something a lot more updated for the current wave and greatly look forward to it if it happens.

    This ^. 100% this. There are only two themes over the last 10-15 years I don't have that stand out in my mind. Sponge Bob (which i personally despise the cartoon & have always hated) and Harry Potter. I'm at 11 yrs collecting/hoarding/building/whatever you wanna call it. When I started back into LEGO, there were a few themes I wanted that were retired (Avatar, NBA 2004, Pharaoh's Quest, Indiana Jones) and I back filled the ones I wanted; except Harry Potter. Harry Potter was on its last wave when I REALLY started collecting (not just 1 or two sets here or there). The cost of back filling so many waves just didn't seem worth it. I almost bit the bullet several times but never did. Some characters looked OK, some looked... ummm less than ideal for me personally. Over this time period (2010-now), there have been some good legit sets. LotR was good and fun (Bag End set is awesome), still love the mystery van from Scooby-do, LOVED monster fighters, but that was all years ago. The last few years: marvel has def taken a quality hit in my personal opinion, DC isn't quite the same for marvel for me ( I blame xmen & spiderman cartoons vs Batman: The Animated Series of the 90's). Star Wars? Rinse and repeat, and every once in a while an awesome set comes through that I really love (mllenium falcon here and Slave I). I woulda said 1-2 years ago my personal favorite line was the Expert Creator with the roller-coaster, ferris wheel, modulars etc. with where things currently stood. Now? It's not even close. 100% Harry Potter. Not only has exceeded my expectations, I also no longer have ANY desire to backfill with the older sets. I'm trust that LEGO will do a fantastic job because of one single reason: the designers/creators actually love what they're making. It appears they've been given some decent rope and freedom to do it well, not half way. For that I applaud "the powers that be" who have done this reboot so well, and for that: "thank you". I'm still hoping we get another Q&A or even just some random insight from designers similar to how we learned about taking extra budget from Jurassic World. Between CMF, advent, D2C & the regular waves, it has been done with quality, attention to detail, and a long term strategy to be profitable and successful.
  14. Once an item's inventory drops under 200, they will grey the item out incase mass orders come in simultaneously. Sometimes, you can call in and they will have some in stock. Majority of the time, on items out of stock, the CS rep will be able to tell you a date when items are will be replenished by. (FYI Lioness is out until Feb 6 incase anyone else cares.) TLDR: Grey'd out can mean "low" inventory as well as completely sold out.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    I was looking at the Upcoming Trolls sets and noticed that in the $30 set, the figure is a centaur based character with the normal shirt attached to it. New mold and Overlooking the blue color but.... the sizing is so much smaller than I would of expected to make a horse/centaur figure. I would want a little larger, but the scale worked. Just interesting side note.
