    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I see people trading them on the different facebook groups here in melbourne. Send me your list of what you are missing and what you have to trade and I'll keep an eye out for you. I just need two now. The chess set is $85 on amazon at the moment, matching bigw's sale. I just ordered one but really just for the figures and to play around with some of the chess pieces to make them a bit better but for a scene display. I have zero interest in the chess set really.

    I totally agree. So i have just finished building the last of the sets I wanted, all the castle sets really, and as expected I didn't really enjoy this years sets. I started with the toilet set, I like the inside hate the building its stuffed in. Then the flying lesson, boring build, boring inside but look ok when finished. Then fluffy, was happy to build fluffy as he wasn't boring castle build and then i did boring castle build. Ended on the largest set which was the best build but only because it had the bigger builds that were a bit different. The new system has trapped itself in these three sized buildings, the great hall size, the bathroom set size and the smallest one like the vines or lockharts office. The build of the two smallest of these are awfully dull builds, where one side mirrors the other. It all gets a bit boring after a while and there is overuse of big lego parts. The interiors are really poor in most of these with a few exceptions but that's due to new stickers and new parts and nothing to do with build quality. And the interior spaces really aren't any better that the 2018/2020 and I think they really only suffered because of budget. So when you start blending different sets you realise lego has broken its own system with the door section of the flying lesson set and the door to the chamber of secrets. I think the chamber door just needed to be a separate piece that didn't need to connect and the middle section of the flying lessons needed to fit the system size. I just don't understand why they left them odd sizes. And when you start mixing up all the sets they really don't look right together, they look like they were designed over a bunch of years and that's why they don't match. The great hall is probably the only exception in build enjoyability and it looks ok on the matching base but it still doesn't improve on the last version. I think I enjoyed it because it was different from all the other size builds. I love the new figures and the new parts and the stickers are mostly great. I've fixed fluffy already but I always knew I would have to do that as he is designed to be played with. Fixed the snake as well but I'm loving the new mould for him. I think this years sets are nothing on the sets we were getting before and I'm worried what we might get next year if this system continues which I think it will. I just don't understand why they wouldn't continue with the final years of Harrys story and then fill in the gaps. Hopefully they start to dot later story sets into the coming waves so we gradually get the sets if lego isn't happy to give us a full wave of Deathly Hallows sets. I have 12 of 16 as well but the only one i have that you need is Godric Gryffindor, Happy to send you it for silver Dumbledore.

    Out of my six so far I have three identical :( Ive just built the bathroom and the interior is very cool, love the sinks and the toilet. But it's such an ugly little block from the other side and that stupid window that doesn't go with any of the other set designs, I've removed it already. And the worst was the sticker sheet, they could have added a spare mirror sticker as the shiny sticker is there but just not cut out. Now i'll have to try and cut it out which never goes well.

    Not mad on this years advent calendar.The side builds are not very interesting. It does seem to have a lot of gringotts references though. some nice prints for leaky cauldron and not sure what the 1x2 tan tile print is. (Its a train ticket) And two chocolate frog tiles as well.

    yeah in lockdown. I wish lego would sort out their gift with purchase. Book of monsters didn't match up with Diagon alley, nothing with daily bugle set. They seem to be unable to coordinate them to match anymore. Will get Bugle eventually but thought it was a bit indulgent to get it so close to Harry sets being released. On the kmart prices, I remember one year getting newly released harry potter sets and they weren't that discounted and then two weeks later the prices went down. And then last year the burrow was really cheap and then it went up a few days later.

    Kmart have them listed on their site, Hopefully you are near a store with stock.

    Yeah i just checked there. Richmond is the only store that's showing stock near me and its not in my 5 km so hopefully northland will get them in tomorrow. Are you able to pick up near you? Not a massive discount getting them in kmart which is a shame.

    No sign yet. Kmart started putting out the new friends sets so they are getting in new stuff. Once kmart lists the harry potter stuff as coming soon they can appear in store before the web site but they are usually never my kmarts until a few days later. With the lockdown coming today you might have to click and collect so hopefully saturday might be the earliest.

    While I'm not a massive fan of the new style I think they are a good call back to the original sets. Seeing them side by side in this video shows how similar they are and if that was their brief well done to the lego team. The chamber is probably the most successful with most of the interiors being of a high standard and the three headed dog set being the worst for the castle build. I'm looking forward to making the chamber and then robbing it of all its good bits. My most anticipated set is Hogsmeade but just because i want to modify it and add some extra buildings.

    Kind of wish the two men looked more wizard like with peaked hats and robes. The men feel a bit generic. Glad we can get more of those bottles though. Since harry has his Dumbledores army list maybe these are extras for Hogsmeade village rather than Diagon alley?

    Elongating the Hall is pretty easy, you just need the parts for a new window section. I'd see how many studs this extends it and figure out how you do the same to the chamber before finalising the Hall. Once your happy you can extend both without too much difficulty you can commit to it. Have fun.

    Me too. There is just something off about this piece. Hopefully we get a proper dome at some stage.

    Here's a look what it looks like with tabs and with them chopped off. Not sure how people fell about butchering lego but the piece is useless with them on to me. It's an odd shape as well, think it's 11 studs across which gives it that slight overhang. It wouldn't work with the digital moc as I have an office in the dome so I only need half a dome so you can gain access to it.

    I have the piece and I tried it. I looks odd because of the lip pieces that connect the two domes together. It fits on my bigger moc. It works as an alternative I just wish it connected properly like a normal lego piece.
