    I don’t see any Pygmy Puffs in the set pictures. Have any of the reviews mentioned them?

    We don’t even have any reliable information on it actually being a thing. It hasn’t been quite as killed dead as the “microscale Hogsmeade” gwp rumors, but I’m personally not to optimistic about it being real.

    I know, Fleur’s wedding dress is kind of like the Beauxbatons uniform hats for me. That bit of costuming is such a work of art, and I never considered it very likely we’d ever get either in a set. Hopefully, the Lego designers will also defy my expectations for the wedding dress and give it to us in LEGO form as well. And I could definitely see the wedding tent being a nice medium set (although I personally hoped that the Lovegoods take precedent in the minifigure lineup over Ron and Hermione, since it’s unlikely we’ll get the Rookery and it might be our only chance to get Xenophilius).

    For all those with a VIP account - there’s currently a short Harry Potter quiz you can take to earn 150 points on the VIP page. All the questions are pretty easy and (unsurprisingly) related to Diagon Alley.

    I’ve been wondering that too. It’s supposed to be on sale in 3 days!

    Wow, I never knew that the short legs were only introduced in 2002! That would make the original Gringotts goblins and Dobby some of the first minifigures to use them. And didn’t the original Quirrell have the first double sided head? And when the theme rebooted the cmf introduced medium legs. Harry Potter has had a bunch of fun minifigure milestones.

    Lol, nice to see I’m not the only one underwhelmed by the brickheadz theme. I just can’t get into the style (same with Funko Pop!s), so I’ll probably be reselling the gwp Hagrid and Buckbeak I get to someone who’ll actually enjoy it - and if the scarcity and popularity mean people are willing to pay a lot for it

    Ooo... I hadn’t even considered that, but it would be loads of fun. I was already considering picking up an extra CMF Ginny to use her hair for a custom Amy Pond. (Honestly, most of the Doctors would fit easily into any Wizarding World scene. I wish we had more, Lego really missed out when they only did the one ideas set and stuck to the characters in the current season of the time :P) (On an unrelated note - sincere thanks to whichever mod took care of that troll and their inappropriate photos)

    From my experience with the 2018 Hogwarts, yes. I waited to get it until they (finally) announced when the microscale DA gwp would be available, so I didn’t get it until November. There were all sorts of problems with preorder waiting lists filling up and stores selling out when it was first released, but by the time I got it I didn’t have any trouble.

    I think the reason nobody’s considering that is because it’s way too early for anything from a 2021 2HY set to leak. Next year’s summer sets are probably only in the very first stages of the design process, so the minifigures for them wouldn’t even be decided on yet, never mind be in production.

    While it does make the most sense that a gwp featuring the 1st movie Harry would be tied directly to the Diagon Alley set, I literally cannot fathom how they’d have kept said gwp set from leaking by now if that were the case. The Lego stores theoretically should have gotten the cases of GWPs in at the same time as the D2Cs, and since the DA box seems to have leaked from the back room of a store, I would have expected any hitherto unknown gwp linked to it to leak around the same time. But so far the only indication that there’s something else out there is the leaked Harry minifigure. Seriously, have we ever not known about an exclusive gwp this close to the release?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Sure, but that’s very dependent on which country you’re in. I’ve never seen most D2Cs available anywhere else where I am in the US, and they tend to call certain sets ‘exclusive’ for a reason.

    D2C stands for Direct to Consumer

    Yeah, I think if the first year muggle clothes Harry came in a gwp specifically linked to the D2C we’d have seen leaks of the actual set he’s part of by now. More likely he’s coming in something a couple months in the future.

    I seem to recall the actual GWP set box leaked several weeks ahead of time. Wasn’t there actually a thing where a couple of stores accidentally sold the sets/had them taken by employees quite a while before the promotional period, and because we didn’t know when the real gwp period was going to be there were actually people on eBay selling them at a massive markup?
