  1. Has anyone else noticed that LEGO appears to be incorporating popular MOC set ideas into their set lineups? The moving Hogwarts staircase set (similar to the MOC by @ericklaw that went viral last year) that was released this summer is a good example. Same with the Grimmauld Place set. Are there any good examples of LOTR MOCs that LEGO might look to for set inspirations? The only LEGO LOTR builder I follow is @jonaskramm and he is amazing https://www.instagram.com/p/Ce3xSDVI8ai/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY=
  2. Yes. Yes. YES. I never knew how badly I needed these minifigs in my life. A Battle of the Last Alliance set in front of the Black Gate would be incredible… Gil Galad, Elrond and the Noldorin warriors, Elendil, Isildur and the Numenorean soldiers, SAURON, Mordor Orcs and a troll, Eagles and Fell Beasts… Just take my money. “Take it. You must take it. I’m giving it to you!”
  3. I disagree. LEGO is not going to make a significant financial investment to renew a licensing agreement with one of the most highly guarded licensing properties in history - LOTR - just to produce a couple random Brickheadz. They would not see a return on that investment. I have a feeling that the Brickheadz are just a teaser before a full return of the theme next fall. This feels very similar to the return of the Harry Potter theme, which was sparked by the new Fantastic Beasts films. Now that Rings of Power has debuted, it seems like the perfect time to bring this theme back for the fans.
  4. Same. I hope anyone who wants to see LEGO LOTR return in full force will also pick these sets up. Let’s show LEGO that LOTR fans are ride or die for this theme. If the D2C rumors are true, what do folks think are legitimate possibilities? It would have to be something iconic enough to justify a hefty price tag and to celebrate the return of the theme. I highly doubt LEGO would give us two D2C Towers of Orthanc. And the Tower of Barad Dur looks too similar to Orthanc in my opinion. My money is on a massive brick built Balrog facing off against the Fellowship on the Bridge of Khazad Dum. The Balrog has been featured quite a bit in the promotional materials for Rings of Power, so it would make sense to build off that hype. Whatever it is, I hope it’s something minifig scale and not some collection of “iconic” items like Bilbo’s book, Sting, the light of Elendil, and the One Ring… Although now that I’ve typed that out, I don’t think I would hate it.

    Is the universe playing a trick on me or are the rumors true - LOTR LEGO IS BACK?!? The Balrog and a D2C??? Is it too soon to get a new thread started?

    Have the sets already gone up for preorder in Europe? Do we know what the preorder date in the US is? I thought it might be today, but I can’t see LEGO doing something like that for Harry Potter on May the Fourth when it’s all Star Wars all day.

    The sets still aren’t available for pre-order in the US… Anyone know when they will be?

    Welcome back, @lego_guyon02! Many of us were asking about your whereabouts this year. You have been missed. For the folks who are new to this forum, @lego_guyon02 was really our only source of information on the 2021 sets last year and he helped us all brace for the impact of LEGO’s rather unexpected soft reboot of the Harry Potter line. He is the unsung EuroBricks hero in my opinion. Hope you are here to stay @lego_guyon02. Can you independently verify this D2C Hogwarts Express rumor? Any other thoughts on what this could look like? While I am disappointed the D2C isn’t Gringott’s, I think a truly minifig scale motorized Hogwarts Express could be spectacular. I can see LEGO including several train cars and making each one based on a specific movie scene. The iconic Sorcerer’s Stone scene where the golden trio meets. The Prisoner of Azkaban scene with Lupin and the dementors. The Half Blood Prince scene where Harry spies on Draco, Zabini, and crew while Luna, Ginny (and her Pygmy puff Arnold) stand nearby. Still not a day one purchase for me, but I could be tempted around Christmas time to see something like this chugging along beneath the Christmas tree…

    So much good news to take in… I don’t even know where to begin! Are those new broom molds??? I can’t believe I’m focusing on that with Kreacher, Lupin Werewolf, green smoking jacket Sirius, Sirius Padfoot, Pince, purple haired Tonks, baby thestral and all the other goodies LEGO has packed into these sets. But seriously can someone confirm that we are getting new broom molds this year? If the D2C is Gringott’s, I am calling this as the best year of Harry Potter LEGO to date.

    Nice! I’m so freaking excited. I have a feeling we are all going to be pleasantly surprised with this year’s sets and minifigs… I suspect that there are several LEGO designers who lurk on this forum to collect our feedback and bring it back to LEGO. So many of the items we have wish-listed on this forum are finally becoming a reality this year. Even obscure items like the Thestral foal. And the overall tone of the sets also feels much darker and less focused on the dollhouse / fancy dress party themes of 2018-2020. For bricks’ sake, we are even getting a giant Ministry of Magic set (possibly) based on Deathly Hallows! My excitement for LEGO Harry Potter definitely declined after the D2C Icons set was revealed, but the anticipation for a potential D2C Gringott’s set this year has me back in obsession mode. For $470, I would honestly be happy with just Gringott’s and a badass Ukrainian Ironbelly. Give us Borgin and Burke’s and the Leaky Cauldron (or Pottages or Eeylop’s Owlery or Madam Malkin’s) and I will be a very happy man.

    Any clues on when we might start seeing leaked parts or images from the 2022 sets? I had a dream that a Lupin werewolf minifig leaked and he was glorious. He had the Wizard of Oz flying monkey legs in gray: and he had a new headmold that was reminiscent of the Anubis heads from the old LEGO Pharoah’s Quest sets - sleek and scary - but gray with small pointy ears and bright yellow eyes… I’m dying to see how LEGO tackles this minifig to the point that it has now entered my dreams! Any thoughts on how Lupin as a werewolf will look in his newest iteration? I think reusing the old werewolf head that is all furry and wild and almost comical looking is not an option. Do folks think we may actually get a new “animal” mold for him instead of a modified minifig? Or, dare I say it, a brickbuilt werewolf? Or - even worse - is there really a chance we will not get a werewolf Lupin in the Shrieking Shack set at all?

    I could be wrong, but I’m fairly certain that the Quetzacoatlus figure’s wings are designed in such a way that you can actually rotate them forward to mimic the creature’s iconic standing pose. Take a look at how the wings connect to the body. There seem to be two points of articulation - horizontal and vertical. Would have loved vertical neck articulation, too.

    💯 Agreed. This style is much more fun for little kids and AFOLs alike to play with. It allows you to customize your Hogwarts display based on your imagination and the possibilities are endless. Can’t wait to see all the different ways the Sirius Escape set and the Dumbledore’s Office set can be added to the layout. And my hopes for the interiors are high based on last year’s interiors.

    The information that @THELEGOBATMAN shared about Tina was officially released by WB in their latest trailer - it is not “a film leak.” A bit more civility on this forum would go a long way… Let’s all just chill out and stick to LEGO Harry Potter. Is anyone else in the US having issues with their delivery of the Hospital Wing, Trunk, and Moments sets? Mine were supposed to arrive yesterday and I was so looking forward to building them this weekend. Now it just says “In Transit”. Excited to see how I’m going to be able to connect the Hospital Wing to the rest of the 2021 modular sets. Has anyone seen all the sets combined yet?
