    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    This isn't really related but as I was thinking about how cool the stranger things set looks, I was weighing the options. And for the same price as stranger things, I could buy the entire June wave of HP sets, minus the Knight Bus, which I don't want. And if you take into account amazon discounts, which HP is much more likely to receive than a stranger things D2C, the first 5 HP sets would only be $192 (assuming 20% discount), as compared to the 200 dollars for stranger things. Not to mention 25 minifigures and 2 new animal molds, as opposed to 8 figures for stranger things. Just something to think about when making your buying decisions!

    I like it, but at the end of the day it's just a bus. Nothing as unique as the other HP sets.

    Nope. The first 5 revealed (Horntail, Expecto, Clocktower, Knighbus, Hagrid's Hut) are to be released June 1. Then I've heard August 1 for Beauxbatons and Graveyard. And September 1 for the advent calendar.

    Just an off topic tangent, but I was wondering how everyone would rank this year's HP sets now that they've all been released. For me personally it's 8: Advent Calendar (sorry just not my thing) 7: The Knight Bus (Nothing special, not much nuance) 6: The Rise of Voldemort (Love the figures, but the graveyard is fairly dull) 5: Hungarian Horntail (Really like the dragon; everything is good, but just not as good as the others) 4: Expecto Patronum (Perfect figures, love the stag, trees are good enough) 3: Hogwarts Clock Tower (Looks amazing, but kinda getting tired of all the expensive castle sets) 2: Beauxbatons Carriage (super unique and fresh, love the transformative feature) 1: Hagrid's Hut (by far the best/most accurate to date, love the buckbeak, price isn't an issue once it goes for 20% off at amazon)

    And the other thing is, with a 4 year cycle, they'll need to do rereleases every once in a while, especially of popular sets. So 5 years down the road, I wouldn't be surprised if they were to do another quidditch set or Hungarian Horntail. Just think about Star Wars, for example, which always has an X Wing, or a TIE on the market. Or maybe a better example would be the Kashyyk sets that were released this year. Very similar to 2014 sets, but with a few variations. Mostly for people who missed out on the sets when they came out the first time, such as younger kids who couldn't build such advanced sets at that point in their lives. So yeah... TLDR, I think this line has staying power.

    I was hoping for some blast effects in red and green to simulate the spells.

    So do all the HP sets release in August, or only these 2?

    Wait who's the greaser? Egon?

    I second that notion. I don't even watch the show, but this set just really seems like a unique idea, and I'll pick it up for sure.

    Ooooh...what if we get a Flitwick from Philosopher's Stone? You know, the one with the crazy mustache during the feather lifting sequence. That'd be really cool in terms of variation, even though he's technically the same character.

    Oh sounds interesting. I assume the larger would be graveyard duel. Maybe the smaller could be a second task build, or vice versa?

    Wait since when are there 2 waves this year? The Knight Bus releases with all the other sets on June 1st I thought. The advent calendar doesn't really count.

    Does anyone really care about the "perfect accuracy" of a character as irrelevant as Grawp? I mean lets not get spoiled. HP for 2 years has been one of the best quality licensed themes, even though it's not perfect. But imagine if HP was the quality of Marvel Super Heroes sets. Hell, Marvel fans don't even get a proper figure for Thanos, the villain behind 22 separate films, and we're sitting here complaining about a hypothetical figure for the half brother of a side character, who appears in maybe 5 minutes of one film.
