    Try soak it in some Warm water for a few minutes, it should help it relax back to shape I just checked mine and Sauron’s helmet and they are all good, not bent. Nonetheless I miss the little protective bags that they used for rubbery/painted parts like the dwarf beards and Saruman’s hair. My copy of the new Hadrid’s hut sadly came with a Fang with some horrible Scratches on both sides, I wish it had been in its own bag. I was shocked also the hagrid body too was also loose as that’s been bagged before. I’m all for reducing plastic waste but in these instances I think it’s justified

    I can see them doing a UCS Bangend, as it’s one of the most iconic locations. It might have a similar footprint to Rivendale but less parts: interior with at least 3 connected rooms each with a window to the front: entrance hallway, living room, dining/tea room. study. The back of the set is open and the roof can be removed like the original set. Perhaps have a removable fireplace to help prop up the weight of the removable roof/tree when it’s all together A much more substantial tree build compared to the original set Includes Gandalf’s cart and a detailed garden and front fence/gate Figures: Gandalf, old Bilbo, the other 4 hobbits, cart horse, Rosie? I doubt they would do the company of Dearves as much as I would like that this is an ideas set which is similar to what I can imagine: https://ideas.lego.com/challenges/58660122-6eea-44ec-bfb4-a0d26f4015fa/application/21120fac-42d9-40d6-92a7-440998a54970

    Thanks for your tip, I rang them on Sunday when they opened and Westfield Shepherd’s Bush had only a couple left and they had a long Que so no chance, however the store at Battersea Power Station which is less known had a few in stock too and offered to reserve me a copy! So I dashed there in the trian and got the GWP! They also had a large built display of the model but no Minifigures, also it’ was all glued together except the mechanisms, it’s huge in person. , the box must have weighed 6kg by the feel of it.

    Hi I’m in the U.K., I got insiders access and it’s in stock still online but no GWP available it seams… is it worth it trying London Westfield or Battersea Power station to see if they have the GWP in store?

    How far do you think Lego can go with the new Diagon Alley system sets, so far we have had two sets with two locations/shops. What’s going to be next?

    If I get this set these are the mods I’ll have to do to make it work better for me: taller central tower, not an entire module but a few inches of extra bricks to improve the proportions reduce the fat ‘collar’ around the central tower where those rubbery large spikes attach, make it more flush redo the dining hall into a WW2 bunker style war-room with a large map of middle earth and a throne for the Mouth to dictate from. longer entrance bridge and a gate at the end.

    Challenge accepted. Set 76439 Ollivander & Madam Malkin's Robes contains 2 packs of wands, one reddish brown and one medium nougat. Each Pack has 12 wands, consisting of 2 copies of 6 different shapes: The 6 shapes are as follows and my guesses for their closest matches from the NobleCollection collectible wands are as follows: 1 Snake Headed: Lucious Malfoy, Amycus Carrow, Death Eater 2 Curved with spiral pattern on the handle: Bellatrix, Krum, George Weasley, Snatcher 3 Screw/spiral pattern down the full length: Hermione, Xenophilius, Cho Chang, Trelawney 4 Flat-ended with smooth handle: Harry, Sprout, Mundungus, Tonks? 5 Large Round mushroom shaped end with banded detail on the grip: Lupin, Quirrell (unofficial), Ron?, Moody? 6 Wedge-shaped profile end with spiral detail on the grip: Neville, Ginny, Dean Thomas, Arthur Weasley, Fred Weasley, Alecto Carrow, Percy Weasley Several characters wands have a spiral/snail shape profile at the end of their wand (Queenie Goldstein, Fleur, Pettigrew), it’s a shame this pattern wasn’t included in the range of special wand moulds, number 5 on my list is rather plain in my opinion and doesn’t correlate well to any specific wand and should have had a spiral detail instead. Going by many of the names above it would fit very well for many characters to get a pack of these wands in black, perhaps in a Department of Mysteries Battle set?

    Agreed, I think the secret door is just a play feature to make the model more fun, children can use their imagination: it’s a secret passage out of the castle, or the way Quirrel let in the Troll for example, Hogwarts is famous for secret passages so it’s on-theme and can be used in many ways

    The next big castle section will be the grand staircase tower with the lookout tower/quad entrance arch attached, all on top of another rocket foundation, here is my hopes for the interior: Dumbledore’s office (this is a given) in the roof Griffin statue staircase's below Gryffindor Common-room removable module in the main tower below that Moving staircase like the micro set on the ground floor of the main tower. Umbridge’s office in the lookout tower (like the micro castle) DaDA classroom in the roof section over the arch Dungon module 1: OotP Room of Requirement, with Neville and Ron (to differentiate it from the previous set). Dungeon module 2: Slytherin Commin Room, incudes the Bloody Barron smaller middle Dungeon space: trophy room 5 figures mentioned above + Harry + Draco + new Slytherin student Which might leave the Ravenclaw common room, Divination and other classrooms, library etc for the viaduct entrance building. No idea for the dungeons for that section though.

    I like the new system, although it looks like it won’t include the clock or astronomy towers unless they keep it going for 5 years+, where other waves have only had a 3 year plan I think before a reboot. I don’t see the problem with the way the potions classroom was done, it means those scenes and characters are accessible for young families with smaller budgets and get lots of extra detail and parts. I love the way the classroom folds up so tidy and gets stored away underground, it’s like the Great Hall becomes a toy box when not in use. I had a thought today about the Great Hall architecture, and wanted to see what everyone else thought: In the movies we see that the hall space is very wide and has the big tall windows etc, see here from one of the studio theme parks: Compare that to this external of the building: It looks like the ‘floor’ of the great hall itself is above the lower row of windows, inline with the detail in the stone where snow is settling. So question is are all those lower windows looking into the kitchen? And would the Hufflepuff common room be below that inside the rock foundation/basement of the Hall?

    One more thought, with the Troll included some of us speculated that the great hall might be decorated for Halloween, sadly this is not the case. But could Halloween pumpkins for example be included in the advent calendar?

    Also for UK collectors, Game has a 20% discount on lots of new sets including the first wave (Forest, Hagrid’s hut, boat house etc)

    That Aragog is amazing, so anatomically correct and makes the 2018 one look like a cute chibi/funko version by comparison, you could actually frighten people with it. Shame there is no fang. I hope the Dumbledore from the Great hall is the same one in the Advent Calendar, with that hat and printed skirt. I don’t plan to get this hall but might make my own from the online instructions using my existing peices

    I’m very pleased with the new house ghost and Professor Vector, this was a good choice of figs to include in this set. Nice also to see new Hufflepuff students too and I’m so glad to see the CMF Dumbledore hair/hat being used again. I’m a little disappointed with hey used for he scarecrow hat for Vector, she needed something more elegant Troll looks very good and well made with painted/printed clothes etc, an excellent big-fig and one of the main attractions of the set, I hope the bathroom module includes some troll smashing play features Is the gold scissors in Malkins a new colour for those? Fair play to re-use the librarian hat for Madame Malkin, but the re-use of many other existing parts and prints makes the building look like a MOC in my eyes, apart from the stickers which are great Mandrake is excellent, very stand out and uses many original building techniques which gives it its own aesthetic compared to Groot or the LotR Ent but also stays true to the real prop, I love all the entangled vines and roots, and the huge leaves with printing are impressive. I only wish it had come with a Herbology Hermione using a recolour of that Hidden-side hair with moulded headphones, maybe that will appear in a future greenhouse set

    I was going to say this too and i like the idea. If I was the designer I would do this. It could have an architecture style base and consumer feedback could be used to judge weather there is appetite for a mini series for the rest of the iconic locations for adult collectors alongside the brick heads. The scale model would illustrate the size of the ‘real’ tower compared to the one we see more often in the context of people, it would definitely enhance the build without being painful to miss out on for those that can’t get it. Given the know measurements would the towers be in scale With microfigures? Like the UCS Hogwarts or Helicarrier ?
