    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    My list: 1. Astronomy Tower, but ever so slightly above 2 because it depicts a better scene, ergo has more desireable figures (for me at least) 2. The Burrow. The house itself is near perfect and on par with AT in terms of looks, it's just down to scene and minifg selection. 3. Room of Requirement, another great small set. The more patronuses, the better! 4. Privet Drive. Lovely house, great Dursley figures, but unnecessary Ford Anglia and weird Dobby bring it down a bit 5. Forbidden Forest. Even though executed well, I don't really care for Grawp. Still a must have for the centaurs and Umbridge 6. Hedwig. I do want to build it, see how it looks on display, but it's of the least priority compared to other sets

    Had a weird thought just now: do you think the Diagon Alley will be 18+ and have a box similar in style to Star Wars and Architecture? I know 5 sets (so far?) isn't any indicator, but it seems to me that that's the direction Lego is going in with adult-oriented sets this year

    Sorry, there's no way I'm reading 20 pages, I'll just say a few words and be gone Wonderful builds all around, can't really decide which one is the best, honestly. I'm qiuite surprised how actually nice Privet Drive looks. Never thought I'd like to have some average english house on display AT is a big step up from last year, it has a nicer shape and the rooms are more detailed. RoR is a neat little set, nice variants of the characters and the patronuses are a must have. The Burrow is fantastic, still would've preferred DH version with the wedding, but what we got looks perfect at this scale. Grawp looks surprisingly good, but we all know people will be buying the set for the centaurs (and Umbridge). Hedwig is a bit weird, but it's a nice sculpture nonetheless

    Damn it, so many pictures on IG and still no HP. Or maybe that's a good thing, more time to process what we've already seen, there's a lot of it. How do you do that?

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    That is a showstopper of a set, regardless of how much was changed from the submission. I am simply in awe, the ship itself is just gorgeous and alone worth the price, but I also like how the wreck is presented, that it's not so obvious it's just three parts of the ship. I think it's well hidden behind foliage and docks. My only small gripe with the set is the usage of those large tan pieces, whatever they're called. They're way too uniform to represent sand, it doesn't look natural. I think I'll try to replace them with just layers of plates, it shouldn't be too hard

    That makes much more sense I didn't notice the monster book before.

    I does seem off, too many characters from our wishlists But the new pieces look legitimate. My biggest concern is why do a remake of Neville with mandrake? What was wrong with the old one? I'd much rather have an older version of him. Other than that, the figs look marvelous, especially Richard Harris' Dumbledore and Sprout. Can't wait for more pictures That's Griphook

    Very good choices, especially Blacksmith. I'm curious how they'll handle the characters of Winnie the Pooh, the way they're presented in the submission is alright, but we all know they'd be much better with specialised molds we shall see, but I'll probably pick it up, I always liked the franchise

    Or the Sesame Street, with all the major characters, each with exclusive mold Yeah, it's most likely the piano, but the price is... wow. Something's definitely afoot, either it's going to be 4000+ pieces or have some electric components, I'm guessing PU motor with app integration.

    Don't overthink it too much, Futurama was a pretty standard PG-13 show with moderate but never explicit adult content, it's no more "controversial" than the Simpsons or FRIENDS and if the latter two were made, so can be Futurama. Besides if this project is chosen, it'll most likely go the Voltron route, e.g. no minifigs included (just like in the submission)
  11. Umm, what are you guys talking about? I don't think it was really out of stock, just some technical problem, or Lego decided to launch this set in the morning instead of midnight, for whatever reason. Now, it's a real possibility that it will be out of stock before the Year of the Rat promo starts on monday. People, don't buy the sets yet, wait until monday!

    LEGO Creator 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I know a certain kid that would looooove to get the Old Trafford (big football fan, plus lives around Manchester). That's why he must not know of it's existence, at least not yet For now the set doesn't do much for me, although it could have an interesting build process, especially with what looks like a retractable roof. We'll see

    Bender should have chrome hip piece, AKA shiny metal megablocks I know, it would look ridiculous against silver body, but what a way to honor his catchphrase! EDIT: did the site just censor a.s.s? jeesh

    Not that Lego would ever do that, but this version could go in CMF, with a special torso mold for the straight jacket, or something similar to a cast that would connect to both hands simultaneously (or replace them). It could actually be the only chance for an "asylum patient" fig, as normally it would be too mature for Lego. Dammit, I need to stop dreaming

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors & discussion

    Not really possible due to straitjacket, but technically there is a version of Lockhart in hospital shown in the movies. And it's St. Mungo's I really hope it's not someone as desirable as Lockhart, although if the silhouette does represent the fig and not just a place holder, there isn't that many characters to choose from. Most likely it is a version of Harry (year seven or epilogue judging from the regular legs), it could also be Cormac McLaggen, Tom Riddle (diary memory), OotP Dudley. From adult characters, really only Gilderoy comes to mind right now Maybe Theseus Scamander, although I doubt they would choose someone from FB. My bet right now would be Dudley
