    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Do you think that Warner Bros might require LEGO to create products for the new Fantastic Beasts movie as a condition of having the Wizarding World license? In 2018 they already kinda shoved FB into the CMF and only made two sets so it seemed like they were either testing the waters or were forced to do it. I would love to get more FB sets though, from any of the movies.

    The Wizarding World accessory pack is available again in US S@H today. Too bad I submitted my order yesterday. Hopefully it will be still in stock next time I need to make a free-shipping-level order. Edit: And it is sold out again already.

    Any idea if the Diagon Alley accessory set should be back in stock on S@H US eventually? It was available for such a short time, I really hope I didn't miss out.

    Anyone out there have pics of these? I want the hard evidence of Peeves!

    Since there has been discussion of Peeves, this is something I have always been curious about: How do we know that figure is supposed to be Peeves? Is there any official source from LEGO identifying him as such?

    My theory is that these replaced Fantastic Beasts sets after the first wave didn't do so well. In 2018 I believe there was a July wave of Harry Potter sets and an August wave of two Fantastic Beasts sets. In 2019 I'd guess they originally planned the same pattern, but then decided to change the two August slots to just be from Harry Potter.

    Very well said. I want to add that the whole point of LEGO is that it is a building system where the pieces can be re-used. If LEGO already has a part and print that exist for a certain situation, I would much rather have them re-use it than create a new one just for the sake of exclusivity. It is better for everyone if certain figures and pieces are more widely available, unless you really only can value something if others don't have it. I would understand annoyance if some figure was re-used in a situation where it doesn't fit the scene, but I don't think we have seen that happen often.

    It's likely this may have been planned to coincide with the originally planned release of Fantastic Beasts 3 before it was delayed as well. The first came out with Fantastic Beasts 2. So I agree it is likely a possible series 3 would release around the new date for FB3.

    I read on Instagram that the GWP Ice Rink 40416 will be available for purchase for $20 later this month. Is that true? Or do I need to drop $150 big ones now before it runs out?

    I ended up caving a buying a second Hogwarts Express from Barnes & Noble yesterday to get the GWP. (I have wanted another for a while so I can expand my train and platform) Now I see it has gone out of stock online too, so I guess it's good that I went for it! It seems like only sets left in stock at all are Privet Drive and CMFs.

    Yeah, this is very frustrating... Does anyone know if these sold out today once the promo went live or if it has been that way for a while? Is there any hope the new stuff comes back in stock while the promo is live? FYI, here is a better direct link to the promo page: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/h/free-lego-harry-potter-book-of-monsters

    Excellent! I guess it is time for me to pick up the Astronomy Tower. Here is a website I found mentioning the promotion: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/h/black-friday-cyber-monday-deals

    Thanks, that actually makes me feel much better about the situation!

    How sure are we that MBOM will be a GWP, considering it is apparently already available at some Legoland Discovery Centers? Have there been sets that are both GWP and a Legoland exclusive before? This seems like a pretty unusual situation based on recent history.

    How is this set being distributed in the US?
