    I'm thinking this too. This year could have finished the castle as we are running out of possible parts to built to fit with its scale. But now we have a whole new style this year. I can imagine lego continuing to add to this new design style and not splitting the wave into add ons for the old style as well. As long as they build for the old style they need the old sets available as you gotta have them all really.

    Looks great. You need to host your photos on flickr or other hosting sites to get good photos up on here and then you can just add the link and the picture will appear here. I had a go doing some digital designs. Here is my Battle of Hogwarts Bell Tower moc with the greenhouse from Astronomy Tower set added on. I built it in the real world first which defeats the purpose of doing it digitally. :) https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-72990/micmacpadwac/battle-at-bell-towers/#details

    But does it need to be a $250 set. I think $100 sets would be enough to get the feel of it. I just don't see the demand for a building that's not that important in the movie. Most people wouldn't even recognise it I think.

    I doubt the D2C needs to stick with the anniversary theme. I hoping its a mini figure play set and it can only be certain things if it is. Some options are: 1. Large Quidditch set or world cup set. I think a full quidditch pitch set would look cool but might be a nightmare to display. 2. Ministry of Magic. Could do lobby and an offices and orb room and fight scene where Sirius dies. Would be vignettes really as the building is underground. Cloud city type set. 3. Malfoy manor. Larger table, fireplace and dungeon. Not sure about this one, don't think it needs to be this big. 4. Grimmauld place. Think this doesn't need this budget to be made, could be done similar to Privet drive budget. 5. Diagon Alley extension. Well Gringotts anyway and possible inclusion of any of the missing buildings. Think it would need to be more than just the bank for this budget. 6. Motorised train. Train sets can always be upgraded to fit the budget. 7. Some parts of Hogwarts. Not really sure what they would do but they could do something like the Battle of Hogwarts in the courtyard, They really can't do any courtyards that would fit with the existing sets but this one off could be a display piece. 8. Durmstrang ship with tasks. Could be a cool set but I don't think it needs this budget. Much better as smaller set/sets Well that's all I can think of, anyone else got more options other than a sock :) Please go to facebook to discuss this rubbish. This is a Harry potter forum not a cancel culture outrage forum.

    I totally agree. But at the moment we are not sure if it's a chess set, or the chess scene with castle elements. My confusion with it is if can be connected to Hogwarts castle I can't imagine the small castle and then this giant chess set. It will dwarf everything else. I don't really want a chess set but would be happy with the small scene set. Time will tell I suppose.

    Because I moc stuff i always feel lego want you to buy two sets to make it look right (spiderman bridge anyone). If the set connects to Hogwarts and has some wall elements I can imagine lego not doing a full chess board but having at least one of every big piece and a good few pawns and then you could buy another set to make it a full board. Also I wonder will the advent calendar have some chess pieces in it this year, didn't they say it had a play element.

    All these torches are great. Love him. I've never seen the computer game version before. I hate the original lego one. Very cute, I can imagine with some fluffy printing these could be official. I made some tweaks to my Gringotts moc. It took ages as I was waiting on parts to come.

    I'm much happier that the chess set isn't the $250 set and now as long as its a playset I don't care what the d2c is now.

    You come on to talk about cat Hermione and the rug gets pulled out from under august. So what's happening? Are we getting new sets? And the prices of the other ones are wrong?

    I can see why you warned people, nobody could have picked these coming out at the start of the year. Never been into brickheads so skip, liked the Hedwig build but not sure I want a whole range of creatures, will have to see what it looks like. The chess set isn't something I want. If its the chess set and scenes like the keys and vine trap it might be more appealing but I'd rather they broke them up as sets rather than this expensive set. Not sure why they don't make smaller sets out of all these scenes. I see people saying we are not the market for these, they are for kids. That bull really, once a set goes over a price point its for adults. The chess set will be about $350/$400 here in Australia. That some grown man/woman cash. This has made the june sets more appealing . I like the new cornish pixie. The Great Hall still looks rotten but the figures and scenes should improve it. Looking forward to mocing and fixing it or using it for parts. What a strange year for Harry!!

    This made me laugh and he knew who you were talking about so he know he posts a lot. I do love this page but unfortunately if their is no new news and 6 new pages of chat then read at your own risk. Until we get some better leaks or final builds or a list of the fall sets there isn't a lot to talk about. I've done a clean up and removal of watermark of honey dukes and the three broomsticks image if anyone would like me to mail it to them. Once i brightened it too it looks much better. just dm me.

    Not everyone hates it, people just like saying it like its fact. I liked it but as a play. The main issue is that it should never have been released in paperback pretending to be the next book. The play though is great viewing, the magic is amazing. All the time travel stuff is great in the show, its done really well. So when people say it wouldn't do well as a movie, I'm not so sure they are right. I still would prefer new stories though.

    I suppose a few stickers on curved pieces would be enough. Lego did a nice job of the bear skin rug in the blacksmiths

    Yes that's it. It looked odd in brown, I couldn't recognise it.

    I did a bit of photoshopping on the Hogsmeade set image and removed the watermarked brightened the picture up. Noticed a few things: is the ridge plate on the Three broomsticks a new piece? Its acorn shape that's flat on one end. Also when you remove the watermark above the front door there is a triangle shape that has the three brooms on it under the antler piece. Building looks to be nougat colour. The chimneys on Honeydukes are a brick and a plate wide, odd choice. Also both buildings have interior builds so it looks the most finished of all the new sets.
