    I guess all this year's sets are going to be anniversary themed. I assume they'll do DH next year. I really doubt LEGO would skip DH, it's definitely not too dark for them, they made sets of dark things before (graveyard for example). I mean, I doubt they'll give us minifigs with alternate faces to represent their deaths, but there's more than enough to make a decent wave out of.

    I love the soundtracks for all the HP movies (yes, even Desplat's). I often feel Nicholas Hooper doesn't get enough credit for his additions. Umbridge's Theme, Fireworks and Flight of the Order of the Phoenix are some of my favourites. They even reused his 'Dumbledore's Farewell' during the Snape memories scenes in DH p.2 and it's so good.

    I think the sets look quite good, but indeed of a lower quality than previously. These sets feel aimed at a younger audience, with more focus on play than display. I hope the interiors are detailed, that might help me forgive the more lacklustre exteriors. I also doubt we'll get a decent Slytherin statue, It'll probably be a sticker and not brick-built.

    I'm curious if they're going to use the classic tower roof pieces for the anniversary Great Hall set (if a tower is included of course). It would be fitting with the sand green and as it was used quite often in the old HP waves.

    It could be that the Torso isn't the one for this figure, I remember it happening before where the leaked figure used a torso from a different figure.

    This reminds me that LEGO has not made any Crabbe and Goyle minifigs. I do hope we get to see some in the near future, it's a good excuse to give is more Slytherin uniforms, without having to give us another Malfoy figure. Edit: They haven't made any for this new theme, I know they had them in the old ones.

    Well, my DA and GWPs are 'in Warehouse'. I don't know if this guarantees me getting the GWPs or not, but fingers crossed.

    It's odd, when you look at images from HBP and of her outfit + wig from the studios her hair is more brown than black. Images from DH make it black, perhaps due to colour-grading? Ladt time they made a minifig she had a brown hairpiece with a white streak in it that looked rather good .(even though the hairpiece wasn't accurate)

    That's why I honestly don't see them doing the Bell towers, they have no significance in the movies or books at all. Even design-wise, as you said, they're quite similar to all the other remaining towers (cube-shaped, main peak, four turrets). I think they're more likely to make some exteriors, probably the courtyard battle. They could make it the design from DH again, and include some towers for the latest Hogwarts set. Don't mistake this scepticism as me not wanting the Bell Towers, not at all. I just don't think LEGO would 'waste' a set slot on them.

    I was wondering if the big $230 set could be Gringotts and the Leaky Cauldron with brick wall. I know these are on opposite sides of the alley, but it would make the price more logical. In addition, since Gringotts is in an entirely different orientation of the other buildings, would they make it just attach to Ollivanders and make it a facade with interior only (like 2011) or something like the Burrow with it being exterior for front and side and interior for back and other side? What would you guys rather see for Gringotts in ways of displayability and playability?

    I'd love a Middle Earth theme with the amount of effort they put into the HP theme. Yearly waves with smaller and bigger sets, some D2C's and a CFM. It's certainly doable and wanted by fans.

    I just checked the LEGO site and noticed the advertisement for the GWP's are no longer there. Does that mean the promo is done? (probably due to being sold out)

    Is there any chance my MBoM could be cancelled? I ordered DA on 1 January, but it's backordered. The MBoM Is included in the order, do they keep it aside because I ordered early even though it probably won't be delivered for another two weeks or so? I haven't had to deal with backorders before so don't know how it'll work exactly.

    So, for the MBoM being available on SaH, will it be a GwP? Or can we just buy it? I want to buy Diagon Alley as soon as it is back in stock and if it's before 1 January, I don't want to miss out on MBoM (have all the other HP sets already).

    I agree I'd rather no remakes, especially since it's been maximum 2-3 years since the first ones and I don't want it to become star wars and release the same sets with minor differences every three years. I am not a fan of the random castle-like exteriors though, The Whomping Willow set is probably one of my least favourites, mainly due to the rather lacklustre exterior that vaguely resembles a part of the castle from the films. Yes, I'd also like them to redo the Grand Staircase Tower, though I don't know how they'd make it able to fit the great hall from 2018. But it does need an update. I am doubtful of the other Hogwarts parts though. I see lots of people mentioning the bell towers, but they really aren't that prominent in the films in terms of events. Harry flies by them on Buckbeak and we see them ring in GoF, but that's about it (that I can remember). They're a part of the silhouette of Hogwarts of course, I just don't see what events they'd depict as interiors, they probably won't do random interiors. They always try to fit in rooms where events from the books and films take place. Maybe they can set Moaning Myrtle's Bathroom in there or something. Don't get me wrong, I'm not denying that they could make the Belltowers and so on. I'm just trying to think about it with how LEGO made the other Hogwarts parts and I kinda think we had all the main parts already (Great Hall, Clocktower, Astronomy tower). They could definitely do random bits that don't really resemble a certain part of Hogwarts and fill it with random interiors, a bit like the Whomping Willow set. I just like the ones more that look like iconic pieces of the castle.
