    Story of my life... actually wait, no, I just wing it lol. I just have a box of built Lego HP that I don’t have anywhere to put... do you think maybe it’s telling me to stop buying it?

    I’ve bought a tent, an Ethernet cable and a modem and am planning on camping next to my ISP to ensure I’ve covered all possibilities

    It almost certainly will I’d say although would imagine it’ll be hard to find. But hey, at least that way you might be able to take advantage of a double points promo!

    It does make sense, just confused me lol. Still hunting for Mad Eye Moody, Harry and Hermione at a good price... ——— Having built Astronomy Tower, and totally in love with the amazing design, I feel like the front of the small hall (can’t remember what it’s called) is quite plain. Has anyone tried swapping out the clear window for four coloured transparent 1x1 bricks? Im also finding the 1x2 brick on top of the tower kinda weird lol

    They count as a set on BrickLink (confused me to no end when trying to find HP minifigs with the accessories lol

    1. I agree and I hope so, as the deeper it gets the more pieces it wastes. You can easily get the detail we need with the newer style Winter Village (i.e. Fire Station depth not Toy Shop depth). 2. I think if they include the brick entrance it’d be at the end. Isn’t that the whole point that it’s at the end of Diagon Alley? I think that/Leaky Cauldron and Gringotts are the only places whose locations matter really. 3. This would also allow Leaky Cauldron to have a front as it could be a side on shop with an open opposite side (like how the Burrow is). I think that could work well. By the way, unrelated, but is Leaky Cauldron the main entrance to DA or just for the muggle world? LC seems very quiet for a very busy DA in PS!

    @sebastian666and @ everyone - thank you too! It’s been an awesome journey. Well it’s not finished yet - aim for 600 next? not unreasonable if we get a few big leaks Fitting that I just finished the Astronomy Tower! Oh, and my uni is doing both online and on campus stuff although I think lectures are all online. Apparently no students will be disadvantaged if they can’t come in though. Thankfully I’m on an internship this year so hopefully won’t have to deal with it!

    Mmmm, fish fingers and custard I was thinking about Madam Malkin’s the other day, and if they had some minifig bodies in the window like in the Lego game. It’d mean we get loads of extra Hogwarts uniforms and then I was wondering if they’d count each of those as 0.5 minifigs - like how Winter Village Bakery has 7.5 due to some legs stuck in the snow 😆

    With no idea how large the shops are this type of speculation seems a bit pointless. Especially when price per piece is so variable.

    Who says there aren't loads of prints. (20 shop Diagon Alley, here we come! Maybe it will include WH Smith and the rest of London after all )

    Wait, EIGHT shops?!?! And here I was hoping for six at best! And come on, Gringotts has to be there as well surely... this Is looking better than we ever imagined... Also for some reason I assumed the Harry leak was Borgin & Burke’s but i guess Ollivanders also makes sense.

    Huh, VERY good point! This wave definitely has a lot of female representation. And yes that could be why we haven’t gotten stuff like a troll... but that can be extended to sets. A lot of the sets in the HP reboot are fairly generic, or at the most loosely based around a certain event. Hagrid’s Hut: technically based around Buckbeak’s rescue but really, it’s just a Hagrid’s Hut. Pricey Drive: has the flying Ford so obviously CoS escape, but has references to many of the films. Whopping Willow: the car and the tree are specific, but the castle is just a section of castle that happens to appear in that scene. Many of the castle sets just contain fairly generic classrooms (although some don’t). Then again there’s a lot of specific ones, particularly the Forbidden Forest sets, but in general, any major event that happens inside the castle is put into a more generic castle set, hence no Chamber of Secrets or 3rd Floor Corridor. I guess this is kinda a limitation of the modular style, although Room of Requirement being smaller shows that they’re not only doing larger Hogwarts sets. The more I think about this the more I think of examples where my argument doesn’t apply lol, but there’s certainly much less representation from in-castle events, And where it is represented, it’s a small part of a larger set rather than a set by itself. I actually think the new Creator Pirate Ship could be modified into a Dienstrang ship. It’s a similar scale, and has a similar ish shape. But I’d love to see a Durmstrang ship set!

    Well, so much for me buying all the 2018/19 sets before the 2020 ones... couldn’t resist getting the Astronomy Tower and Privet Drive when they were both on offer at Amazon Germany this weekend. Currently built the tower of AT - wow it looks so awesome! I totally love the interesting techniques to get the overhanging section and it looks like it has so much depth from it. I love the details inside, especially the Astronomy ones. And Blimey it’s tall lol. This set is amazing! (Apart from those bookcase stickers. Ugh. and the fact it had a tendency to Collapse on me when building the ceiling of the Ravenclaw dorm!)

    Uh who is thick monk? And Roland Stunt? I hope no one believed this list...

    He deserves it After months of deceiving us, it feels oh so gratifying to stomp him into the ground  There was also the low chance that their story added up with them posting fake leaks whenever they didn’t use the hashtag (re what they said about the advent calendar being wrong)... so there was still an element of inncocent until proven guilty, even though it was a garbage thing to do. So this is the final final nail in the coffin for them. I also apologise for bringing them up the other week (here I am doing it again, but only because they’ve already been mentioned). I didn’t trust him at all anymore but still felt there was potential for a shred of credibility so I wasn’t willing to completely disregard what they’d said yet. I bet if they made a new account again they’d still have people on IG believing him and asking questions though, just like the most recent one...

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Ah I see, Thanks! I think this could be a really cute idea, something a bit different and also something to go with Santa’s Workshop in the fantasy area of my village. It also allows putting only a part of the village on display but still having a proper fleshed our display. I like it!

    These minifigs are awesome! A couple of not so interesting characters as expected but a huge amount of awesome ones! I especially love how they’ve gone for a huge variety of years - 2, 3, 4, 6 AND 7. Wow! And even James and Lily too - that’s so cool to get!
