    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    My guess is they tried printing her boots on at first, then maybe noticed it looked terrible and decided to just use dual moulded boots which makes the minifig so much better. I like to think the Lego company really loves the Harry Potter theme aha, they design incredible and well detailed builds and pretty much almost all Harry Potter minifigs have amazing detailed torsos and legs etc and new hair and hat pieces last year and this year.

    Yeah aha it is a bit distracting considering in the film he has a huge bald spot at the top of his head.

    So some HD close up images of these new minifigs are on Instagram, first time I have seen them but maybe some of you have seen them already: Hagrid's Yule Ball 'torso' print looks incredible, finally we get a new version of Hagrid other than his normal outfit. Fleur looks amazing and I can tell will be a lot of people's favourite minifig in this wave, the dual moulded boots and the hat/hair piece look great and I'm happy Lego decided to add them, does anyone know if her face print is new or if it's an existing piece? The Death Eater as far as I can tell is just a generic person, can't tell if it's meant to be flesh tone printed badly on a black head, or if Lego meant for that to happen. I assume it's not meant to be Lucius Malfoy since on the box art it just says 'Death Eater'. Wormtail actually looks really good, the best version of him so far (except for the hair). His face print is really accurate and will be double sided and I love his detailed suit design and the fact it carries onto the legs. Harry as always looks amazing, just wish he had two red stripes printed on the sides of his legs, so he matches how Cedric has two printed yellow stripes in the CMF but it's not a big deal. What annoys me though is as I have said Madame Maxine does in fact have black hair which is really weird considering she has the accurate dark brown hair in the Clock Tower set. But it's nice that we get a new outfit for her.

    I think the only logical reason is Lego is keeping everything exclusive, so like you can only buy those CMF versions of Harry, Ron and Hermione in the CMF and that's it. I think the Ron in the CMF series looks more like the Prisoner of Azkaban version more than the one in the upcoming Hagrid's Hut set. My guess is they are not from any specific year at Hogwarts, they are just generic designs of the trio exclusive to the CMF. Fleur having two different head prints is not too bad, I mean both heads look similar enough, but why two different colours for Maxine's hair? Very weird (but it could just be an editing mistake for all we know). That's the same as having Cedric with his correct brown hair in the Dragon Task and then him having incorrect black hair in the Clock Tower set, could you imagine! aha.

    Not going to lie that kind of annoys me tbh lol just makes both minifigs inconsistent in the same year of release, but maybe the actual part in the box will be dark brown? Maybe it's just black on the set images for some reason, either way if it does come black in the set it can easily be replaced, I'm pretty sure that hair piece is cheap to buy and not hard to find so, but it's still very weird.

    I could be wrong, it could just be the lighting or an editing mistake, but is it just me or does Madame Maxine have a black hair piece in the Carriage set but then she has a dark brown hair piece in the Clock Tower set? Did Lego make a mistake?

    All I can say is I'm just so happy they are doing the Goblet of Fire sets, they all look amazing, some look much better than last year's choice of sets, and hey there may be some minor nitpicks with certain minifigs etc in these new sets but overall Lego has done a great job. The only thing that I think is missing with this wave is the underwater lake task, I do wish Lego made that into a set so we could have all three Triwizard tasks like they did in 2005, but oh well, maybe they will do the lake set early next year? Also, it's interesting how Lego still haven't included a new teenage Ginny Weasley minifig with the mid-legs in any of these sets, but I'm assuming next year she will 100% be included in a Order of the Phoenix set.

    Here is a question aha who is going to add the CMF Cedric to this new Graveyard set to make the scene more accurate lol, would have to change the face print though to the serious one Cedric uses in the Dragon Task and Clock Tower sets.

    Makes sense aha at least this brick built Triwizard cup looks much better than the brick built Goblet of Fire in the Clock Tower set lol.

    Wow I didn't expect these new pictures today! Actually shocked me when I saw them on Instagram... both sets looks amazing, still need to take it all in, I'm happy we have a new Triwizard uniform Harry that matches the Cedric one from last year's CMF. I'm in love with the Graveyard set, it's so cool of Lego to remake the two task sets from 2005, I have always wanted them for so long and I can finally buy them. 100% getting the Graveyard set the day it comes out! The Triwizard cup is now brick built? Wonder why they changed it. That Death Eater looks amazing. I feel like Wormtail should have been given a different hair piece. The carriage looks like a really fun build. Interesting choice how we get Fleur's little Sister as a minifig but I'm all for new Harry Potter character minifigs! Fleur looks amazing, love the hat/hair and the duel moulded boots. At least we get Hagrid in his Yule Ball robes, we can now add him dancing with Maxine in the Clock Tower set!

    Kind of annoying that the Sorting Hat is included with that new Harry Potter book, doesn't make it an exclusive piece to the Great Hall set anymore and I wish Harry had a new exclusive black tie uniform, oh well, the first build looks pretty good tbh, reminds me so much of the 2001 Sorting Hat set mixed with the 2010 Freeing Dobby set.

    I have noticed that the dish piece that shoots out the stud shooter in the Patronum set is the same clear blue with sparkly glitter style as the stag Patronus itself, I love little details Lego do like that.

    Exactly, no matter how these sets turned out people will either love them or hate them, everyone is allowed there own opinions on these sets, if they don't like certain things that were included/not included that is fine and if there are people like me who will be buying every set in the wave that's also fine aha.

    I think maybe you can hide the wing if you angle the camera at the right spot aha, I'm guessing they found that angle to hide it, if not it doesn't matter, they probably did it so it didn't block out anything on the box art, either way the box art looks great.

    Some little details I like/found interesting: I love the new design of Harry's Firebolt broom. I have always thought 'Lego should make new broom moulds or Lego should add more detail to the brooms' and here we are, they added an actual broom stand onto the broom, basically the two little bars on either side can rest Harry's legs on, which I think was such a nice inclusion, Lego could have easily skipped that detail but they didn't (they tried to do the Firebolt broom stand in the 2010 Hogwart's Castle using a cone/sloped piece but it didn't work and this version is better). I actually like the small tent build, I love how they represent the different schools by using stickers on the inside of the tent, I also like the little bed build and side table. I love that the golden egg is the egg piece as we expected in a shiny gold colour, it's nice that it actually shines and wasn't a flat gold colour instead. The mermaid stained glass looks incredible and another nice inclusion to the Clocktower set, I also love how Lego used two blue lightsaber bar pieces to represent water coming out the taps. Thinking about it, if you really want to you could pose the Harry minifig with the Golden egg in the actual bath to set the scene lol. I really like how you can spin the minifigs to represent them dancing, a nice little feature Lego added in for us to use, also the build for the two snowy/icy tables with the ice sculpture and the drinks look really beautiful. Overall the Yule Ball section looks fun to build. Obviously, the Clocktower can connect to the previous castle sets from last year which I can't wait to connect together to make an even bigger castle to display. I really love that Lego included the pumpkin patch outside the Hut, they could have easily have just placed Buckbeak on a chain and that's it, plus I love how they did a mix of orange minifig heads along with new pumpkin pieces to represent different sizes, such a nice touch. I don't mind Hagrid's Hut having the back completely open, it matches the theme with the rest of the sets from last years wave where both castle parts have an open back so you can see all the rooms and have easy access to place minifigs. I love the little chocolate frog thrown into the Hut set, once again wasn't really needed but it's nice Lego put that in. Ron's second face looks really grumpy and/or disgusted aha, I think it looks fine if you use that expression for the Yule Ball robes Ron. As some of us guessed there is a stud shooter in the Patronum set, which is a little bizarre tbh, however it does make sense since Lego needed a play feature and it's used to represent Harry casting the Patronus spell and knocking all the Dementors away. Plus the stud shooter is at least brown and blends into the tree well enough so it's not that bad, also you can just take it out.
