    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Aha, I See. Sounds exciting! I hope they do a good job with it. It’s quite big from what I remember so I wouldn’t mind if they made it a little smaller and cheaper but we’ll see! I don’t think we do. But retirement wasn’t anything to do with my comment, it was just a pattern I noticed about Hogwarts Castle’s prices and I was hoping DA will follow the same sort of pattern and go for £50-£80 off in a year or so’s time. :)

    Perhaps you could have a crack at making your own? You can get some small LEDs on wire fairly cheaply that are probably suitable.

    Me too! Hoping there’s not many sets from other themes that appeal too much - as long as there’s no double whammy of Barracuda Bay and Treehouse! Think I’ll get Diagon Alley next year or the year after, based on Hogwarts Castle there’ll maybe be some decent discounts in a year or so’s time at other retailers. By the way, is the Blacksmith confirmed for January?

    Ah, so is that why they introduced the 18+ range?

    So, as our current leaker @Guyon2002(although my pitchfork is sharpened - nah, kidding, we know you here and you said take it with a grain of salt so if it’s not right we know it’s not your fault), I’m curious whether you knew anything about this year’s HP Wave? (Damn if you knew anything about Diagon Alley, that would have been annoying with everyone going after He Who Must Not Be Named lol)

    I would like a vault though. It wouldn’t have to be correct in terms of the films/books and could just be through a doorway in the back that leads to some rocky path and a vault. But I’d like a little something.

    Yeah I was just messing about tbh. Personally I’m not sure I’d want Gringotts to be that huge, and think they could get plenty out of a $120 set. Still, exciting to get info this early so thank you :) Do you think a Hogsmeade could be microscale?

    Ever feel like we’ve been in this situation before? 🤨

    If @Guyon2002’s price list is accurate, maybe I shouldn’t be disappointed that the latest Ideas results was naff... sounds like they’re continuing to go all out with this theme. Also sounds like there’s too many sets there to just be Deathly Hallows plus FB3 - so hopefully they’re really going back and filling in the gaps. I’ve got Clock Tower and Beauxbaton’s Carriage left of the 2018/19 HP sets (excluding Hogwarts), and Room of Requirement, Hedwig, the Burrow, Diagon Alley and the Advent Calendar of 2020 still to get. But I think even if next year is more expensive, it’ll be much less than what I’ve spent in total over the last 9 months! (I haven’t spoken on here for a while. I am currently building the Treehouse, which I finally caved and bought, and am totally loving all the details! I also think it’d make a better Whomping Willow than the existing one

    Apart from the Build your own Adventure book, no. That book has been known about and available for a while.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Do they not normally, like, announce these things? It looks really nice! Love the interior, now that we’ve got to see it - there’s so much detail! Also love the oval shaped door, and the way the roof leans forward is awesome However, having seen the interior for a proper sense of scale... is it me, or is it a bit small? Considering it’s the same price as the Gingerbread House... or maybe I’m just thinking that because of the outside fenced off area?

    Maybe I’ll have to look into getting a PS5 or XBox sometime, since it’s not looking like it’ll be on Switch. There’s probably tons of games I’m missing out on that I’d love anyway - but I’ve always said I’m happy as I am. Darn it, why do I have to pick the expensive hobbies :P

    I think you can import models into Stud.io? Or maybe it’s just the parts... ——— So, I bought the last of the 2018 sets for me to get, Whomping Willow. I have to say, I’m not a massive fan of the tree; the way it goes from blocky brick built to smooth with stickers to branches seems kinda clunky to me. I also feel like the top of the tree is extremely sparse, I guess for the car play feature. Has anyone found a good way to bulk it out a bit?

    Sorry if this has been mentioned. But at 4:36 in the Designer Video uploaded by Lego, are they some prototype shops in the background?

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing. Interesting interview even without that tidbit
