  1. “Harry didn’t have to do his homework by flashlight anymore; now he could sit in the bright sunshine outside Florean Fortescue’s ice cream parlour, finishing his essays with the occasional help from Florean Fortescue himself.” This MOC is of Florean Fortescue’s ice cream parlour from the wizarding world of Harry Potter! Located in Diagon Alley, London, the parlour keeps witches and wizards satisfied with the coolest, most colourful ice creams and sundaes! Florean Fortescue's by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The model is based off the recreation of Florean Fortescue’s ice cream parlour in Universal Studios Florida, with inspiration drawn from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book. The large ice cream cone attached to the upper floor gives the parlour its recognisable appearance, whilst a stickered bright light yellow 1x10 brick details the shop name. Light blueish grey masonry bricks have been used to create a “worn” texture, blended with bright light yellow bricks to give the parlour a sense of shabbiness. Florean Fortescue's 2 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Florean Fortescue's 4 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Inside the parlour, the iconic white and black checkboard flooring has been recreated using alternating 2x2 black and white tiles. The ground floor has an area for Mr Fortescue to serve his customers, complete with freezers, stacks of ice cream cones and soft-scoop ice cream machine. Florean Fortescue's 3 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr On the upper level, there are small diner-style seating areas for customers to enjoy a sundae whilst looking out onto the cobbled shopping street below. On summer days, an ice cream cart, complete with umbrella, can be used to serve witches and wizards, with a small table and chairs outside. Florean Fortescue's 5 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. Photos of the "real-life" build will be posted soon. Any thoughts or feedback would be welcomed! If you’d like to keep up to date with our other MOCs and creations, please follow us on Instagram – instagram.com/scarlet_patronus_ . If you’re interested in trying the build yourself, instructions are now available via the following: https://ebay.co.uk/usr/scarletpatronus https://store.bricklink.com/ScarletPatronus?p=ScarletPatronus#/shop https://rebrickable.com/users/ScarletPatronus/mocs/ The sticker used in the model is also available for purchase from our Bricklink store (with shipping fees). Thanks for taking the time to read this post!

    [MOC] Honeydukes Sweetshop from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    Thanks :D if you follow us on Instagram, we will be posting pictures of our “real life build” this weekend. Instructions will be made available shortly ☺️ We are working on other HP MOCs, but if you have any suggestions they would be welcome ☺️ Thank you! It’s amazing there - so much so that we want to capture that version of Hogsmeade Village in LEGO form!

    Thank you! I would love to go back too... although it could be dangerous for MOC-building inspiration...

    Thank you very much! The shelves and fountain where designed to be easily removable from the build, so you can change their locations around!

    I know this is a little off-topic, but a while back I posted Honeydukes and Florean Fortescue's MOCs in this forum. I remember a few people said they'd be interested in seeing more pictures - there's a link here to my Honeydukes post, others coming soon. I'm on instagram too if anybody wants to see more pictures. I'm really excited to see more HP leaks coming soon. Might even wait up until midnight June 1st to purchase some lockdown treats :D
  9. “There were shelves upon shelves of the most succulent-looking sweets imaginable.” This MOC is of Honeydukes sweetshop from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Located in the non-Muggle village of Hogsmeade, this sweetshop keeps students from third-year above stocked with the most delicious and magical treats a witch or wizard could find! Honeydukes by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The model is based off the recreation of Honeydukes sweetshop 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 replicate the snowy village of Hogsmeade as it is first shown in the films. The iconic green bay windows on the shop exterior have been captured by attaching handlebar pieces to modified bricks. A printed “Honeydukes” 1 x 4 brick in bright pink is used to recreate the wooden signing on the front of the shop. Honeydukes 2 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Inside the sweetshop, the recognisable white and black checkerboard floor is a key feature, created by individual 1 x 1 alternating tiles. The green shelves are adorned with the finest confectionaries seen throughout the Harry Potter series – Chocolate Frogs, boxes of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, pumpkin juice and cauldron cakes, to name but a few. Window displays are made of sweets that can be purchased in the shop; cotton candy, lollipops and cookies amongst others. Honeydukes 3 by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr On the upper floor, a large chocolate fountain takes pride of place. A free-standing till can be placed anywhere in the shop, and a trolley filled with treats can be pushed along the cobbled streets of Hogsmeade village in the summer.

    Do we know who the Hufflepuff is supposed to be?

    A Hogwarts students pack would make a lot of sense imo. Since the first wave, the other large Hogwarts expansion sets haven’t included the characters in their school robes. This is an ideal way of getting around making iconic scenes with exclusive figures (the clocktower Yule Ball set) whilst still providing students to fill up the corridors and classrooms of Hogwarts Castle. Plus, LEGO must know that these sets would fly off the shelves like an inflated Aunt Marge with everyone wanting to fill up their castles!

    Now we’ve seen so many dress robes, I can only hope for a Fleur figure in her wedding dress 😍

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I have to admit, I do prefer the downstairs interior of the 2010 Burrow to the 2020 version - it’s more enclosed. Like I think a few people have mentioned here, it means that the Burrow will look a bit too “open” from one angle. But in spite of that... 1. AT 2. Attack on the Burrow 3. Room of Requirement 4. Privet Drive 5. Forbidden Forest 6 Hedwig I do think Hedwig is a fantastic build but I just prefer playsets. I’ll still pick one up because it’s a bit different, but it’s not really my thing. Appreciate LEGO are branching out and trying some new as it’ll make the theme last a lot longer! I’d love a Niffler one of these eventually, for example.

    I always keep set boxes. My brother and I store them by flattening them and storing the flattened boxes of similar sizes together with tied string! Works pretty well. They do take up a lot of room but makes the second-hand set more valuable if you were to ever sell them!

    I thought this might be Kingnono’s hint - that QQS could turn up in DA. if not though, I’ll definitely be picking up and extra sticker sheet for my version of QQS 😁
