    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    If it is Dobby's sock, hopefully they throw in a Yoda/Artoo sized Dobby and maybe a Kreacher also for that price. I would think Gringotts is most likely, but also I don't want to pay $500 for another large scale HP set...money is tight as it is and this is the only theme I care about.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I don't care about the set, but I need that Mrs. Claus! Such an improvement over the Santa Village set years ago.

    Nevermind. I looked on Bricklink and saw some really old window pieces from the late 60s that look similar to what you used.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    But Diagon Alley 2.0 being $70 more than the previous version...what could they really include? Gringotts yes. The dragon maybe. But if they want to keep them at similar scale, that is less than $200. Including carts and track and stuff inside is a neat idea but wouldn't go with the rest of the layout which would be upsetting for most people. Including these other random shops that were barely in the movies *shrug*. I mean, I'll take more HP. As much as they want to give me, but at $470....it has to be something very worthwhile. With the number of high dollar sets they keep putting out, money becomes a lot tighter. I think an extension of the microscale Hogwarts would be silly. We already have the most important/recognizable parts of the castle, so are people willing to spend more than the original for some greenhouses and a few other towers. Either way. I can't wait to see it. I won't speculate since no reason to get my hopes up. Maybe LEGO will surprise me.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I know I'm in the minority. The more I look at it, the less I like it. Something about it just is off to me. I mean, I'll buy it eventually so LEGO wins anyway, but I won't build it. I'll have to come up with a different MOC out of some of the pieces sometime.

    I haven't seen it. I've heard of it. I didn't realize it was a comedy. The building looks really neat. Did you create your own stickers for the wall? And what did you use for the windows to get that shape?

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I ended up just going for 7 copies of the book. Thankfully Target here had a buy 2, get 1 free on books, so I was able to stock up that way to save a little money. But either way, Amazon prices were decent for the most part on multiples (as in cheaper from Amazon for the whole book compared to the figure plus shipping on Bricklink). Now I have 7 copies of a book I don't care about. Oh well.

    I've never been that lucky. But I ordered bulk plates (like 6x8) in medium nougat and some in dark bley. Both were similarly priced when adding them to the basket, but when I received my order the nougat were marked down almost $1.50, but dark bley were the same. So I found it strange, but like you said, you try to order them again (because I would have ordered more if I had known it was going to be discounted), but on the next order full price.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Coming from someone who has been invested in the Modular line from almost the beginning, I can say meh. I like the color scheme for the most part (I don't love the sand green roof here with the flesh color, but like the idea of a sand green roof otherwise). I don't love the flat iron design just for how it fits in on a square street. The whole point of the flat iron shape is because of the angled roads next to it. I will likely buy it eventually, but I have zero interest in actually building it or displaying it. I'm sure there are lots of great techniques (and I'm obviously not a LEGO designer, so they could show me a lot of tricks), but this isn't screaming out to me, for some reason. I can see I'm in the minority, so there's that.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    So it wasn't only me that got Gringotts vibes from the new modular? The dome for sure. The flat iron angled shape adds to it. Color scheme not as much outside of being lighter. So yeah, I'd think Gringotts won't be coming for a bit. I stalled a project I was working on because I assumed we would have an official one sooner than later and didn't want to create my own, only to toss it aside because an official version came out. Now I need to decide if I want to restart that project and build my own afterall or wait another year...or two...

    I always mean to make a list, then I forget, and then the sets are released and I check this forum and realize I made a huge mistake in waiting, and then I scramble to grab what I can...maybe 2022 resolution, be more organized?

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well overall it looks good. I don’t love the color change and because of that I won’t need to pick up multiples. But the relief is since they are scarved I wouldn’t need multiples for my indoor Hogwarts scenes anyway. but overall should have some useful pieces so that always helps!

    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    It was unfortunate that Hobbit movies weren't popular. They were obviously geared at kids with the comedic bits of the Dwarves, but I don't think that translated well to official sets. I didn't like the movies (I didn't really care for the book either), but I wasn't the target audience. LOTR sets were well enough, but I definitely only cared about the figures and army building Uruks or Rohirrim. But I guess it is time to just accept that chapter is behind us and move forward to whatever LEGO decides to give us.

    That is clever to the max. Even the box opening on the bottom is clever part usage. Well done!
