    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think there’s a stronger chance that the AC ties into an existing set (The Burrow, Slug Club) than tie into a set we don’t have yet (Grimmauld Place). We could see a Grimmuld Place set this year though! A stand-alone PoA Hogsmeade AC would work really well IMO and be something different we haven’t really seen before, but I don’t think there’s enough “Christmassy” stuff that really happens in PoA to warrant that. Based on getting Slug Club Ginny in the CMF - where we didn’t see any Yule Ball figs! - this sways me more toward the idea of a Burrow-themed AC. We didn’t get a Lupin figure in the Burrow, or Fred and George. Add those to the trio and you’ve got your figure line-up!

    Just look at the popularity of the Moments sets! Historically, I think the only reason LEGO have pulled the theme in the past is due to falling sales/interest in the HP line... this reboot has captured the magic of Potter perfectly, where previous lines haven’t. I think the HP line is here to stay as long as sales for the sets are high. :)

    That’s what I ended up doing - thanks! I wonder why that is 😂

    I’m having issues too - if I checkout as guest I seem to get it but not when I login as a VIP... will I be able to get the points transferred over? If anyone else is struggling, I added everything to my cart before signing in, got the GWP and then it remained in the bag whilst I signed in during checkout. Just in case anyone else is having that issue too!!

    I’ve added stuff to my basket but can’t see a GWP in it...? What is the threshold?

    I’m just curious, as here in the UK we are in another national lockdown ... I assume that a lot of LEGO stores will have been sent stock of the MBoM to fulfil the GWP promotion. What will happen to that stock? Do you think LEGO will just wait until the stores re-open to run the promotion, or will they be available for general sale? 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I’d like to see Gringotts andBorgin& Burke’s taking the $250 slot as one set! Each of the DA “modules” are ~$90 (excuse my conversions, I’m English!) so that’s $90 for B&B with the remaining budget left over for a superb Gringotts build + dragon + cart and tracks play feature. Borgin & Burkes is also notable in Half Blood Prince, which would mean that only one set of figures are required for both locations (e.g. characters as they are older). This would also complement WWW nicely 😉 that’s my hope anyway!

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I hate to bring up an old argument again, BUT... is there a possibility that the £250 could be a microscale Hogwarts add-on to the 2018 D2C? Do we know whether the £250 price indicates whether it’s also a D2C or not? If it’s not a D2C then we can ignore my comment :P
  11. “Might as well get yer uniform,” said Hagrid, nodding towards Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions.” This MOC is of Madam Malkin’s Robes for all Occasions from the wizarding world of Harry Potter! Located in Diagon Alley, London, the robe shop kits out young witches and wizards with their Hogwarts school robes! Madam Malkin's 1 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The model is based off the recreation of Madam Malkin's Robes for all Occasions in Universal Studios Florida, with inspiration drawn from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone book. The purple bay window and large silver scissors above the doors give the shop its recognisable appearance in the alley. Light blueish grey masonry bricks have been used to create a “worn” texture, blended with lavender log bricks. Madam Malkin's 2 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Inside the shop, the ground floor offers a workspace for Madam Malkin, complete with sewing machine, stool and scissors to tailor each set of Hogwarts robes. A mannequin, donned in a pointed black witch’s hat, stands pride of place in the window display. Madam Malkin's 4 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr On the upper level, there are a variety of different hats of offer; from a bright purple turban, to a graduation cap, to black bowler hat reminiscent of the Minister for Magic himself. There are stylish glass panel displays housing fine jewellery, and eager eyes will spot Hermione’s Yule Ball dress in the top window. Madam Malkin's 3 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Madam Malkin's 5 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr This build was inspired by the scale of the 2011 Diagon Alley set. Keep your eyes peeled for a magical update of this build in line with the 2020 Diagon Alley D2C set… If you’d like to keep up to date with our other MOCs and creations, please follow us on Instagram – instagram.com/scarlet_patronus_ .

    [MOC] Zonko's Joke Shop from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    Thank you so much! We are glad that you think so :) definitely - can’t get enough of HP related MOCs!
  13. “The sweetshop’s rather good, and Zonko’s Joke Shop's frankly dangerous.” This MOC is of Zonko’s joke shop from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! The joke shop is located in the non-Muggle village of Hogsmeade, and, to Filch’s dismay, keeps Hogwarts students stocked with the most mischievous tricks Fred and George can get their hands on! Zonko's with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The model is based off the recreation of Zonko’s joke shop in Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, with inspiration drawn from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book and film. Snow covers the roof of the build to capture the small village’s wintry appearance and stickers above the large red windows recreate the playful shop signage. Zonko's 5 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Inside the joke shop, the recognisable red and black flooring has been recreated using various shapes of tiles. The red shelves and window displays are adorned with fireworks, Fanged Frizbees, and stacks of joke boxes. Zonko's 2 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The shop continues on the upper floor, with fake magic wands and more boxes displayed in the windows. A large circular table with ice cream pieces takes pride of place. A trolley filled with tricks can be pushed along the cobbled streets of Hogsmeade. Zonko's 3 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Zonko's 4 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Here’s how it looks in real life! Zonko's Real Life by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The journey of getting from “render to real life” began with a build on Bricklink Studio. From there, pieces were picked from our existing collection of LEGO. Any others were sourced on LEGO’s Bricks & Pieces service and Bricklink, or substituted for alternatives we already owned. The model was finally assembled when all pieces had been gathered. Any thoughts or feedback would be welcomed!

    Really hoping this is like Newt’s case... but I sadly doubt it.

    Anyone know the size of the baseplates used for Diagon Alley?
