    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Been a while since I posted here, but today’s news about FB3 - The Secrets of Dumbledore - compounded with the revelation that LEGO Wizarding World could be one of the 4 CMF releases next year has me hyped. I imagine Warner Brothers is planning to go all out with their marketing and licensing campaigns for this film. Reports indicate the studio sees Secrets of Dumbledore as their opportunity to relaunch the FB franchise following disappointing returns for Crimes of Grindelwald. We also just learned that Jurassic World Dominion is getting a whopping 10 LEGO sets to coincide with that movie’s release next year - the biggest wave of licensed LEGO sets to ever be released alongside a new film. From a sales and marketing perspective, all of these factors point to us getting a bunch of new Fantastic Beasts sets next year as part of the LEGO Wizarding World 2022 wave - including a potential CMF series with at least a portion of the minifigs coming from FB. What sets and minifigs do you all think we could be getting? I think we can agree that a buildable Niffler set is all but guaranteed (groan), but I’d also love to see Newt’s London townhome with the magic zoo in the basement (maybe something similar to the LEGO Lockwood Manor set), the British Ministry of Magic, the Circus Arcanus w a Zouwu, the LeStrange Mausoleum, etc...

    For those who have seen the trailer - would you mind sharing where you found it? I have been scouring the web trying to find this thing. Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated- thanks!

    Do you already have set names and/or set descriptions for the 2022 wave?? I suppose that is possible since the sets were originally planned for 2021 release but were just delayed... but that still seems really early. Any more info you can share?

    I screamed when I saw this on Instagram earlier - so exciting. Who do we think this little feathered guy is? Deinonychus? The scale is throwing me off here... is that the dead Mosasaurus washed up on shore? Or just a Sperm Whale? So many questions! Questions that need answering... I was already happy with this year’s LEGO sets, but now my mind is swimming with all the possibilities of next year’s sets.

    They’re supposed to be randomized but, funnily enough, I also got a Lockhart chocolate frog card in bag 3 with Lockhart’s classroom and the Lockhart minifig. Hmmm...

    Ah... good point! I’m still going to cling to my hopes for a surprise set or two - however unrealistic they may be!

    I didn’t realize that - thanks for clarifying. Regardless, Marcos does mention “some other players that are missing dot dot dot” in his designer interview which seems to indicate there is more than one golden minifig coming... And didn’t we already see a gold Draco hairpiece leak? I highly doubt that LEGO will wait three more years to release Gringott’s when the D2C Diagon Alley is on store shelves now and the demand / potential sales momentum is higher for this set than ever

    Does anyone else find it strange that only 1 set has been slated for an August 1st release? Obviously, the D2C will be coming out later this year, as well, followed by the Advent Calendar on September 1 but the single solitary set release in August just seems a bit... odd. I have a feeling that we may be in store for a surprise set or two later this summer... In the designer interview, Marcos is asked about the gold minifigs and mentions that “...maybe there are some other players that are missing...” indicating that there is more than one gold minifig left to be revealed. I think we can all agree that a golden Dumbledore is all but guaranteed at this point. But what about a golden Draco? Or a golden Hagrid? Even a golden McGonagall? I have a strong feeling that, including the rumored D2C, there are 3-4 LEGO Harry Potter sets left to be revealed. If I had to wager a guess on what sets LEGO may still have hidden up its Wizard sleeve, I would would say: - Hogwarts Icons (gold Dumbledore) - Gringott’s Bank (gold Draco) - The Dark Forest (gold Hagrid) - Troll in the Dungeon (gold McGonagall) The Icons and Gringott’s sets have already been discussed ad nauseum, but one set that appears to be missing is the “forest” style set that we get every year. There was an Aragog set called the Dark Forest in the original 2001-2002 lineup but as we already have that set, I think a smallish set with Harry, Draco, a new Fang mold, maybe a Black Centaur (Bane), and a cloaked Quirrel would be perfect. The other set we are missing from the original 2001-2002 lineup is the Troll in the Dungeon set. I can see something similar in scale to the Flying Lesson set that is less focused on the castle build and more focused on the Mountain Troll and some kind of bathroom stall destroying action. What do other folks think? If there are in fact a few more set that LEGO has in store for us this year, what do you hope we get? EDIT: another possibility I can see is a Borgin and Burke’s / Knockturn Alley set... Seeing as how we got Mr Borgin

    It’s 12:02 am EST and none of the sets are available to “Add to Bag” in the US. It must be 12am PST... Update - I’ve now been placed in a queue on LEGO’s site and there are 1667 people in the queue with me. Is this normal? Update 2 - I was able to get in after waiting in the queue for about 7 minutes and I ordered all of the sets I wanted: the Chamber of Secrets, Polyjuice Potion Mistake, Fluffy Encounter, and Hogsmeade Village Visit. I already picked up Wizard’s Chess Set at Target today. The only other sets I really wanted were the Flying Lesson and the Diagon Alley Accessory Pack but they both still say “Coming Soon” on LEGO’s site.

    Picked up the Wizard’s Chess Set at my local Target. They also had the Fawkes and the Harry & Hermione sets. Can one of my fellow Americans please remind me what time the sets go on sale tonight? Is it 12am EST or 12am PST? I’m so excited to get my hands on these sets!

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I love this set and would buy it in a heartbeat. Well done. What I’ve envisioned in my mind is something very similar. I thought it was interesting that the T Rex fossil (at least the skull) seemed relatively small in relation to Blue on the show but it makes sense in the context of a play set. How do you envision the “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth” banner? I wonder what kind of brick they will print it on or (more likely) have us apply it as a sticker to...

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    A leak of what appears to be Dennis Nedry’s minifig head has popped up on Instagram. This is most unexpected... what do folks think it could mean?! If we get some surprise JP sets I will be over the moon. Imagine if we got Nedry with a JP JEEP and a juvenile Dilophosaurus! EDIT: False alarm! Sorry - it looks like it’s the same actor but for a Seinfeld set...

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oops - I keep forgetting that one is a Juniors set! In that case, I agree the Stygi set probably won’t be Camp Cretaceous but I still think the other three will be. This would be a dream come true - and I think it would sell like hot cakes. It’s an instantly recognizable location for JP fans, includes a JW hero dino, and a diverse cast of kids from a popular show. I am praying to the LEGO gods that you are right.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Season 3 of Camp Cretaceous was awesome. I’m now convinced that several (if not ALL) of the sets that @lego_guyon02 leaked a few weeks back will be based on the show. The T-Rex Fossil set will probably just feature the T-Rex skull along with a new, more-accurately colored Blue velociraptor from the iconic scene in season 3. The Baryonyx Boat Attack set will probably feature Tiff and Mitch’s boat (and an otherwise made up attack scene). The Carnotaurus Chase set I’m sure will also be based on CC and feature a Carno (maybe with some minor mold updates) and a Toro paint application. The only head scratcher is the Stygi set, which will probably be a random scene but I’m sure they will use it to give us an exclusive minifig of the seven Campers so we have to buy it to have the whole Camp Cretaceous crew. I’m dying to see some leaks now... I really hope LEGO takes advantage of this great content and doesn’t just give us made up sets again.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    The official Jurassic World account just shared a sneak peek of an upcoming Target exclusive toy set by Mattel featuring (finally!) the iconic Jurassic Park Ford Explorer along with Rexy and Tim. This is incredibly exciting news because, if I’m not mistaken, the reason we never got the JP Ford Explorer as a LEGO set was because Ford hadn’t released toy rights for this vehicle. It looks like Ford has released the toy rights now, so we could have a JP Ford Explorer set in LEGO form soon! If anyone has more info about the JP vehicles, please share.
