    I mean, Hedwig sort of is a vehicle, or wizarding transportation if you will - just not for people but for letters.

    I agree, it's not hard to imagine a burrow the size of the Clocktower.

    I have a round wooden table, not that big, maybe 80cm in diameter. The Clocktower, Great Hall and Whomping Willow section take up about half. I had to rearrange them a bit to make them fit the round space but it's a great solution for me because this way I can see it from all sides without having to take the whole thing off a shelf. The smaller sets such as the carriage and the knight bus are on a shelf though. I hope I'll be able to extend my castle the same way with the Astronomy tower this year, I'll have to see where they put the connectors.

    Let's just ignore him

    You are right (I'm German). He obviously does not remember that particular set very well, so he asks someone off-screen who tells him it was a classroom. The he goes on about the advent calendar and after that he says that there will be a playset that connects to the other parts of Hogwarts - however, then he interrupts himself and talks to the other person again, saying, "Oh, I think that was that, it was the classroom - doesn't matter. There will be something there anyway". I wouldn't put too much weight on that part, but at least he seemed to be confident about the Burrow and another D2C ("something big, no playset") :) Edit: Maybe the car in the Burrow is not a remake of the Ford Anglia at all but a ministry car. One of those appears in book six to transport Harry to and from the Burrow, not sure if it was in the movies, though.

    Me too. I has resigned myself to waiting at least a few weeks and then Smyths went and gave everyone this discount for some ridiculous reason. If the sets don't go up on Amazon tomorrow, I might go back and get the Knight Bus, too.

    Yeah that sounds like a better option. A big piece, too, but not as wide I think.

    The more I look at it, the less I like the hair piece they chose for Hermione's Yule Ball outfit. I actually like their solution for the legs but I think the hair piece looks way too big. It makes her head look huge. And then it is has that hole in it because the CMF queen wore a crown ... meh. Does anyone have an alternate suggestion?

    If you live near a Smyths in Germany, you can currently get a 20% discount on one Lego Harry Potter set of your choice, new or old (even on the 6000 piece Hogwarts).

    I agree, but then again, why did Lego stop making the theme in 2011, pretty much ignoring the last movies? I can't imagine Harry Potter Lego didn't sell well back then.

    No, Smyths artificially increased the price on Expecto Patronum to pretend they're giving you a discount by selling it for 20 instead of 30 (which they do). The horntail set is 35€ at Galeria Kaufhof, only Smyths has the wrong price. Galeria is selling everything for the RRP. I'll wait til June 1st at least. I think Amazon will get them then since Amazon UK already has them listed for that day. And it's German (?) Children's Day, maybe we'll get a small discount somewhere.

    It wasn't my post but I don't understand your comment about the money. Guyon did say that 50€ was $56, so not the same. And if people in the US pay $30 while people in the Netherlands pay 50€ (= $56) for the same set, that's 26 dollars more. I always thought the tiny branches on the willow were supposed to fall off, as in, it's a play feature to have the tree "fall apart" when you spin it and the car falls out.

    They're available in Switzerland, too.

    Well, they are on the German Smyths Website now (you can't order them though). Maybe they moved them over there
  15. Thank you for posting this! You're right, pretty much everything looks awesome.
