Correct, this is just speculation. My calculation of the piece count is based on other large sets. Original diagonal alley is 7.4c, Ghostbusters Firehouse 7.6c, Joker Manor 7.8c. So while LEGO doesn’t work exactly like that, past sets are the best indicators for future sets. A $400, 3000 piece set would be a serious outlier. There’s a lot of pointless speculation at this point, so I figured I’d chime in. LEGO gave us 10 figures in the great hall for $100. 10 figures in a $400 would be pretty I consistent. I knew DTC didn’t look quite right. Hoping for more concrete info soon. The 8cents/piece is an estimation from other large, licensed sets. Previous Diagon Alley, Ghosbusters Firehouse and Joker Manor were all below 8c/piece.
If the $400 DTC Diagon Alley is real: $0.08/piece = 5000 pieces. If it’s the same 5 builds from the microscale set (gringotts, ollivanders, flourish and blotts, quality quidditch supplies, WWW’s) that’s 1000 pieces per building. Original Diagon Alley set was app. 675 pieces per building, and had 10 figures. The Great Hall also had 10 figures. I’d expect the new set to have closer to 20 figures.
