    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'd love to see both Quidditch and Death Eater accessory packs. Those are automatic purchases in multiples. I can't believe we won't see them eventually, but increasingly it feels like they're going to make us wait. 😕 Star Wars does "battle packs" instead of accessory packs, for what is presently 5 EUR more (20 instead of 15 EUR) that include some small relevant builds. https://brickset.com/sets/tag-Battle-Pack/theme-Star-Wars https://brickset.com/sets/tag-Battle-Pack/page-1 Sorting by year released, there's already one for 2023.

    Aside from @Huigberts Builds intriguing idea, has anyone ever seen a MOC of the film version of the Third Task they thought was good? They almost definitely won't give us the book version, and the film version, bizarrely, was far less visual. IIRC, Sphinx & co. were all book only? People were referring to Promobricks, so I assume the original was German? If someone DMs me a link, I'm happy to take look. (I like to think I'm still more reliable than google translate, if only just... 😊) Also, HP was definitely one of the top 5 themes last year, it's consistently been a good performer, and there's still development of the property on other platforms. There's no way lego puts that in hibernate at this point in time. They have not yet milked me for all I'm worth! I still have a few Knuts left. I'm betting that's true for the rest of you as well. 😉 Heresy! (But: yes.)

    It wouldn't necessarily have to be larger. 76422 ???? $89.99 | 834 pieces is still "unknown" and both of the previous Hogsmeade sets (76388 Hogsmeade Village Visit | 851 pieces and 76407 the Shrieking Shack and Whomping Willow | 777 pieces) retailed for $90 / 90 EUR / £80, so that's in the same range both in terms of piece counts and price. Not out of the question, at any rate. But at that price, I'd expect it to include more than just the Hog's Head. Possibly the Katie Bell scene, for a departure, or some other store, probably Puddifoot's with Harry and Cho. TBF, Gringotts is larger. Making it the same size as Scribbulus would be a bold choice. 😆 (Especially as I still have a supply of those pitchforks somewhere... 😉)

    That's the Room of Requirement he enters, and we're getting it in March but in a slightly different iteration, the Room of Hidden Things. They're from the almost exactly same time in the story. (They had to boot everyone from the room to be able to enter the other version.) Thanks to magic, there's one location with two very different sets of contents. Anyway I doubt they'll give us another version of the room this wave, especially as they're calling the RoHT set "RoR", and if you were doing that version as well, personally I'd emphasise the difference between them which that obviously fails to. It just goes with the better known catch all name. As one of the presently unknown sets from this summer, I'm hoping they might be giving us another Hogsmeade expansion, and that it might include the Hog's Head pub, which is the beginning of the tunnel to the RoR and where the portrait is located. (Like you, I enjoyed the scene with the tunnel. 😉) They could even work more students into the Hogsmeade end by making an OotP set of it as it's where they form the DA. But that's nothing more than a wish at this point.

    You say this, but I'll remind you that when they finally released an Infirmary in the Clock Tower, they did so without a Pomfrey. I'm not sure our logic applies. 😆 I won't complain too much, though. I prefer when they give us more variety and don't use the same few characters in all sets, even if that means having to bricklink the gaps.

    @strangely, I'm not so sure about the printing, although a better Bellatrix would be very nice. DA had only a single minifig with leg printing, and that was Lucius Malfoy using a piece that had already been released in another property the year before.

    I know I'm not the target market because I don't care about ships one way or another, but I doubt I could tell the difference between the Durmstrang ship and one held to a similar palette. On the other hand, the Lovegood house (which I also don't know if I'd want as a set) has an outline I'm unlikely to confuse with another build. So I do think "iconic" is a fair term to apply. Plus it had a fair bit more screen time, and we actually saw the interior, which the designers have said in the past makes it more likely they'll produce a set.

    You joke, but I'm not ruling out 76415 Hogwarts Bridges: Battle of Hogwarts at Hogwarts until it's official. 😆

    promobricks didn't mention "diorama" as a possibility at all, but then also didn't know anything further about it definitively other than piece count, the price and those two words "Expecto Patronum", so that doesn't rule it out either. We have to work with what they have, so it's still open what kind of set it will be (or at least as far as the piece count permits) and what movie it would be from, although they speculated it might be Aberforth in DH to tie in with the known BoH set. (Was that necessarily a Patronus though? Or non-corporeal if so?) Regardless, it was also a very quick scene, so my guess would be any of the other suggestions people have made here before that one. (Then again, how long is the Durmstrang ship visible? 🤔 Maybe screen time just isn't the factor I think it is.) If you look at the lists @sebastian666 and @NostalgicBricks put together for us, you'll see that none of the new names include the "Hogwarts:" etc. prefixes, so either there are no more castle sets this year amongst the known quantities, which seems unlikely, or we shouldn't read too much into that.

    There's always a chance of a Grimmauld Place AC, and a free Dobby could fit there, although that still wouldn't take advantage of the built in Christmas theme possibilities the location and story offers. Then again, the 2021 and 2022 ACs didn't either.

    Malfoy Manor I have difficulty picturing as the scenes are either 1) Burbage gets eaten or 2) Hermione gets tortured, culminating in Dobby's death, both of which seem out of step with the line. If they do it eventually, I picture it less substantial, more playful, like that original concept art sketch or MicMac's MOC thereof. (Or is there a scene I'm forgetting?) What do people think the could include in a film orientated set for the 3rd task? Has anyone seen a good MOC of that?

    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    Please correct me if I have this wrong, but I thought none of the new set names promobricks listed have the format we've seen lately (Hogwarts™ Courtyard: Sirius’s Rescue), so I assume they're not 100% officially correct, but more a shortened form. Alternatively, I can't believe none of these sets are a castle extension. By the same token, not that a diorama is out of the question, but "Sirius’s Rescue" didn't sound like it would necessarily be the name of a courtyard either. Again, "Expecto Patronum" or "Battle of Hogwarts" could be dioramas, but I'm also not ruling out castles and still more castle sets.

    May still not happen. They've been good about alternating things as the D2C sets go, we've only just seen the super expensive Hogwarts Express, so next year seems more probable than this one for an expensive Knight Bus. I've thought of that, because I still think it's a scene we'll see eventually, but consider it less likely they'd name it from Snape's perspective, if that makes sense? He'd be the one casting the spell after all. Like I don't even know if they'd be likely to even include him in a set of the scene, so naming it after a spell he'd cast feels... off. I think a PoA Expecto Patronum lesson, perhaps with a chance to see Snape take over the class (page 394!) giving us an excuse to see him somewhere in this wave. I suspect we also need to have Dumbledore in there somewhere. Still hoping we'll see a Hogsmeade set as one of the two remaining unknowns. Those are proving reliably good. Absolutely can't believe there are no inexpensive sets except for Brickheadz. "Bloody hell!" as Ron would say.

    Apparently it's not confirmed. Oof. Excellent to hear we'll be seeing the Battle of Hogwarts (25th anniversary of the BoH, it would have been odd for them not to capitalise on it) and the GWP sounds good, but most left me disinterested. I hope there are more than one shop / building in the Gringotts set. I couldn't care in the least about a track system, and would rather not have the dragon included. Nothing to do but wait. The price is making me nervous. I honestly didn't expect them to gate keep such a key set behind that price point.
