  1. What a fantastic and beautiful model, I think it really captures the essence of the ship and why it’s one of my favorite ships from Star Wars. Really impressed with how affordable it is given the part count, gonna try to save up so I can build it myself. Just a phenomenal job all-around

    Yeah, it’s where mine shipped from at least

    I finished building DA a few hours ago and it’s stunning. I tried moving the modules around a few different ways to see what looked best (to me), and decided on a layout where Ollivanders/Scribbulus and WWW are connected on one side, and facing them across from them are F&B and QQS respectively. It pretty much aligns with how I’ve imagined where each shop was when thinking back to my memory of the movies, and even if it’s not the most accurate, being able to look down the alley is something magical

    So DA arrived in the mail earlier today! Had to go to work soon after it arrived, but I’ve just finished the first booklet with Ollivanders and Scribbulus (~3 hours build time), and let me tell you, pictures really don’t do the set justice. Hoping to finish it all tomorrow!

    Finally got shipping updates late last night, currently in transit from Illinois to Nebraska, expected delivery is tomorrow

    Same here as well, hopefully that just means it hasn’t been updated and the orders are already on their way

    As a consequence of ordering DA when it became available for purchase before midnight EST (jumping the gun on my part in hindsight ) the GWP did not get added to my order, but I called customer service this morning and they sorted it all out for me, so I’ll be getting those BrickHeadz after all

    Just ordered DA alongside the Winter Snowball Fight set (40424), it’s cute and it has that one snow hat that I kinda want for my SigFig, so I can be more like Holden Caulfield

    Just wanted to get this question in before the likely huge surge in activity this thread is gonna get tomorrow, but to those who are planning on getting DA, are any of you thinking about what order you’ll want to build the shops in? Personally I think I’ll build WWW first, then slowly get to the others, as I can’t imagine I’ll have enough free time to build the whole thing in one sitting

    Went out to my local target and went through all the checkout aisles until I finally found some CMF bags—felt for Dumbledore then took a random one. I was right about Dumbledore and got Myrtle! Then I went over to Kohl’s and found they had a box of them out, picked the one farthest to the back on the left row and felt Griphook. I’ll be getting a whole set through The Minifigure Store within a few weeks, but these are great ones to have multiples of, plus I was impatient (I live in Nebraska btw)

    They recolored the Ginny ice cream glass piece into trans-red!

    The Harry minifigure leaked in July though, July 15 to be exact, so it doesn’t seem too far out of the realm of possibility. I’m curious to see when the Ollivander figure leaked in 2018, though

    Obviously there will be more to gush about when we get HD pictures of the set, but I already love some of the details we can already see, like the spiderweb above the Daily Prophet’s office—it makes me think fondly of the original HP sets which loved to throw spiderwebs in the background of the Hogwarts sets. I wonder if that was the designer’s intention?

    Someone pointed this out before, but I find it curious how DA has that Knockturn Alley entrance with the slanted window, and it reminds me immensely of the slanted window technique in the Pirates of Barracuda Bay Ideas set released earlier this year, which parallels (at least to me) with how the design of the main tower in 71043 was inspired by the design of the Apollo Saturn V rocket, another Ideas set released recently prior to that. Just something that stood out to me

    Didn’t even notice until now—Fred and George use the same hair piece as the one they had in 2011. I definitely feel there were more accurate choices, but this still isn’t too bad. Really curious about what color their clothes are, hard to tell with these pictures
