    Three exclusive characters that you would not get otherwise, I think that's great for an Advent calendar. But I suppose if you are not into the Yule ball its a bit of a bummer. It would have been cool to get an adult, Krakaroff would have been amazing.

    The advent calendar has been revealed. Both twins and Cho in her dress, Looks great. All have the dress printed on a brick like Hermione. I think Cho is my favourite figure, all the other builds look great as well. Must buy.

    Just watch it and I didn't remember how unfinished it was with a lot of the parts being the wrong colour. What was the black thing with the print on it though? Not a lot chanced from this version but it looked like play details got removed for more recolours of parts but the ugly snake build wasn't revisited. Do lego do this anymore, show unfinished sets in the final stages? Seems very un-lego.

    It must be so depressing to have to butcher your cool model to fit into the budget. The white door frames are a perfect example of it in the astronomy tower set. Nasty looking things.

    yes but my wallet might be happy I don't see them. I think I always see what could have been when i see certain sets. I often think I need two of a set to make it right, two Sanctum Sanctorum sets 76108 to make the scale a bit better, two Arkham Asylum breakout 10937 to make it modular, two greta halls (or 10!!!!). It doesn't apply to everything but a certain price point often feels like it needs extra pieces. The Ninjago movie city set is perfect but the docks expansion definitely had better versions before budget took away from it. I've left the first set the same but added to the docks part to make it taller like the original.

    I think you just explained the problem with the movie yourself, if you need more movies to enjoy the movie you just watch it probably isn't a very good or well made. I didn't mind the first one but the COG was a mess and badly written and doesn't know who its characters are. Such a mess. I'm not sure how movies like this and the last two star wars movies get made. Piles of stupid sub plots and badly written characters. We really should expect more for our money. Questions for the designers that the won't answer. I wonder do they build, during the design phase, a deluxe version of the sets they are making and then have to crop it down to fit budget. Would love to see the no budget worry version of the sets.

    Has anyone picked up the new Harry potter Magical Treasure book? Was looking to get it in Australia but it seems like it's not released here till end September. Bummer.

    Kmart australia is doing its usual messing around when it comes to pricing the new Harry Potter stuff. They started getting the sets in this week and I got the two small sets together for $64 but was in there today and they are up to $70 now. All the other new Harry potter sets have gone up too. They do this every year. Target have 20%off at the moment and its across all the new sets so shop there I think but no Burrow listed yet.

    Started Privet Drive moc, only have the first floor don't so far. Its actually fun to do a house as opposed to the castle for a bit.

    I'd love a bunch of them but they are hard to find. None on bricklink and the lego store is out of them in oz. So only way to get one at mo is to get a star wars set. Maybe not :)

    I do love the new sets but with a little tinkering you can get a very movie accurate version. Love what you've done with it. I think a lot of people will try and reproduce this version. Well done. On the picture quality, took me a while to figure out how to add photos to eurobricks. They don't really offer a picture hosting service so I made a Flickr account and then you can copy the address of your picture from there and paste it in here and you'll get nice high quality photos. Can't wait to see more.

    I'm always looking for multiples anyway so I might as well just bite the bullet and get a full box this year. That will be a fun day of opening bags. Hopefully we get the reveal of Diagon Alley soon. So many theories as to what we will be getting, I hope it lives up to our expectations. I do hope we get some street pieces not just seperate buildings. Just picked up the last of the new Harry Potter sets, they finally got the student pack in in the lego store near me in Melbourne. I've started upgrading Privet Drive already which I wasn't too fussed about getting but am excited to expand upon now. Still annoyed they put another car in it though. I've got 5 cars now.

    While we wait for some new Harry Potter news here is my latest moc. I finished my custom Burrow. I actually really like the offical set but I can never leave the Harry Potter stuff alone. Blended two sets but it did need lots of extra bits to finish the roof and walls. Its fully enclosed, both sides open up on the ground floor and the side wall of the top sections. Interiors up on instagram @micmacpadwac. I just saw the new Super Mario line revealed and they have a blind bag series for it. If they release in august they surely would not have the Harry potter blind bag running at the same time. Hope it isn't delayed now :(
