    Maybe we need to think more of things like 1:1 scale models of props etc. eg: Brick-built chocolate frog and beans box. Build-your-own-wand parts pack. Maybe character portrait mosaics 🤢 I think a UCS PS Based Chess board set is not unlikely

    Agreed, they used those legs a few times for rare figures such as the Dimensions gremlin and the demogorgan, but why not for original themes such as Ninjago monsters or even festive Easter rabbits? They could be used in Starwars too for the Geonosians

    Precisely my point! That would be the worst, it would be much better to get a completely different set of characters to the first student pack (even if they were recycled existing prints like Hanna was), that way you can swap the heads between the packs to create more unique figures!

    We are still expecting a new ‘student pack’ yes? Most people assume it will be a quidditch set with each house represented by 1 player. I rely hope it comes with a full set of balls, brooms in different colours etc. My nightmare though would be if the characters themselves were the usual repeats we keep on getting. Legoharrypotterworld on IG today posted this set of custom figures: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLxaQ_AJYRI/?igshid=g1oz7hupemd Although they look great this is precisely the set of characters I really hope they do not do 🙈 we have enough spares of all these faces! What would be your ideal characters? I would much rather see: Gryffindor: Angelina Johnson (Uses the female genie hair in dark brown) Slytherin: Marcus Flint Hufflepuff: Zacharias Smith Ravenclaw: Roger Davies And the new pint: 2x3 tile with a schematic of the quidditch pitch.

    That bathroom build 🤢, I can’t see how it fits in with the others unless they come apart in the middle I’m not a fan of the green roofs but for me these sets will be parts packs to expand my own creations based on the previous sets. CoS is VERY evocative in profile of the first Hogwarts set from PS, seems to work (chamber door looks great) and looks ok but who asked for this? In all the castle builds it seems like they gave up trying to look like a part of the specific castle and went for random/made up structures. I hope we get some nice stuff in the tower for Lockheart’s office/classroom Also called it on the Basilisk using the new large macaroni parts (Micky mouse/ bonsai tree), head looks really great 👍 seems to be using the velociraptor lower jaw too

    It’s a much smaller set than you describe but a while back I designed a castle extension set with much of The same rooms, but here Umbridge’s office is as compact as Slughorn’s Another close existing mould is the ‘princess’ hair/hat combo from CMF series 12 https://images.app.goo.gl/WdNDx8KJQqhVSiey8 That looks really good! Makes me want a real one :D

    They have the perfect mould already for her hat: Scarecrow’s from the Wizard of Oz

    This actually is a set I would rather like, it would be a great parts pack for integrating her office into a castle section and the unique colour and style would definitely set it apart from the others. Like Lockheart Umbridge has a different outfit in every scene so she could also be a unique figure (such as a new mould with her hat from her first speech to the school or the knitted overall she wears when she fires Trelawney

    I love these fun exercises :), My inner Ravenclaw enjoys these kind of puzzles, so this is my list: Anniversary set: 76391 - $249.99 (D2C) OoTP based Hogwarts castle extension: Bell Towers, Central Tower, Long Gallery and Owlery tower side-build all together, with Umbridge, Trelawney, & their offices/classrooms, Hufflepuff dormitory, Fred & George setting off fireworks, Filch, Luna, Cho, a Thestral, Madam Pince, Golden Dumbledore. DH set: 76392 - $59.99 Lovegood’s House Ambush (7 figures including Scabior & Greyback) 2018 remake: 76393 - $119.99 Dragon task remake with all 4 dragons brick-built full scale with a new mould for the Horntail’s head. Figures include Barty Crouch Sr, 3 head-teachers, 4 champions again. Accurate Red Firebolt also. Model: 76394 - $39.99 Buildable Nifler with Newt figure & Nifler New Scene: 76395 - $29.99 Forbidden Forest Encounter (Voldermort, Fang, Firenze etc) It’s interesting to see the repeats and choices everyone else makes, the Nifler has become very popular I see, I quite like everyone’s list actually

    Add Lee Jordan and The Grey Lady Ghost to that list and I would say that is my wish list/goal for the theme before it finishes

    Since Lego is experimenting and going off convention with the buildable Hedwig and the moments-book sets I can see them doing some more like those in time for the winter ‘gift’ season, so here is my list: £250: Harry Potter PS Collectors Edition Chess Set £120: Durmstrang Ship £60: Attack on Lovegood’s House £40: Buildable Nifler (just look at the FB merchandising, the Nifler is very popular!) £30: Weasley Wedding Ambush I think this is reasonable too considering the few new moulds required (Krum’s hat, that’s about it), as it sounds like a lot of the budget is going on the first wave

    Some people have had the idea for it to be used for the duelling club, which would make sense for many of the figures includes

    I think that hat would be great for Aunt Muriel Personally, Pince could use the witches hat or a new mould. Any one else thinking the new thick bent tube parts used on the bonsai tree and large Micky mouse figures will be used on the Basilisk body?

    With Griphook and the DA exclusive Harry in the AC I’m wondering if the whole AC is DA themed? Maybe what the ‘boardgame‘ play feature is is a map of DA with each day being a representation of a shop? I Hope the green roofs are just temporary and they go back to grey for the rest of the theme, this year seems to be to heavy on new ‘gimmicks’ and nostalgia for the sake of nostalgia and not so much on building on the new system established... Many of the new figures sound great though, I expect in time I’m going to mod a lot of the castle sets to integrate them together properly

    I’m quite surprised and have mixed feelings over these. I wish the Chamber of Secrets was another part of the castle like the library instead of the Hall again, both it and the chamber are going to be a bit thin in detail I fear. I assume the staircase tower includes the chamber sink entrance, hopefully with a slide! I love that we are getting more new students and Professor Sinistra, very welcome! But then also strange to not get Pomfrey instead due to the connection to all the petrified victims... I also would happily pay much more for the bathroom and Hogsmeade sets: no Slytherin Common room! Fluffy’s construction sounds literally perfect! I guess we will get the winged keys etc another year? The AC is a big gear-change to our expectations, but i’m wondering if the ‘Dudley’ in pyjamas is acutely Neville? That would make more sense to combine it with the other sets... Cant wait to hear what the winter wave is going to include!
