    Yes. And the results were probably worse because other people were able to fish out the interesting figs from those on offer. (Moody I felt was one of the better ones, because he was basically two characters.) My answer basically mirrors @Salix right down to eventually buying the whole box. (Which obviously left me with more Cedrics than anyone could reasonably want or need...)

    Yes! I want all three. Putting them in Quidditch robes gets me three of the four uniforms, and I have the school uniforms for them to attend classes. Add in Zacharias Smith and we have all four. New faces or hair pieces would help a lot, but I planned to have the Quidditch figs in the Great Hall, corridors and classrooms. At school the students on teams often wore their uniforms the day of matches, pretending they did so at Hogwarts solves my issue with having everyone in identical shirts. I also interspersed some of the old Quidditch jumpers for more variety, even just for regular students.

    Hmm. Right you are, I was more pleased when I got the first one. (Which is probably the reaction that should count.) Unfortunately I was also fairly annoyed when I got the second (and third...), because the name on the jersey meant it really couldn't be used for anything else. I guess I sort of averaged my reactions and took the mean value. As was, I actively looked for more Dracos. Looking at BL prices, Draco seems to go for a little more than Cedric, but both are on the cheap end of the spectrum. (Also: the green broom was/is useful for QQS MOCs, because only having one model to sell was sort of rubbish.)

    Didn't realise how happy I'd be with Quidditch players in a CMF until @Metanoios91 described them. Bring it on, lego. ---- EDIT: basically what @Salix and @CloneO Patra said . Right, so instead I'll ask: how many of you picked up multiples of the student accessory pack, and how many of you are likely to do the same for the inevitable Quidditch version? Bonus question: and how many of you are likely to do so despite not liking Quidditch? ---- That said, chuffed to bits we didn't get yet another Cedric or Cho, and pleased as punch with miscellaneous witchards - but I can't see myself buying more than one of the new character packs, can anyone else? The worst one for me was Cedric. You liked Draco less?

    (emphasis mine) I don't know how many times I've said pretty much this with regards to this year's sets, and yet... I've concluded they are governed by complete different parameters than I'd expect (sure, let's introduce a whole new style why don't we?), and I haven't a read on them at all.

    @living_off_lego, I agree, I'd have tried for the Great Hall, but in its absence the Whomping Willow set is a CoS set with a lot of memorable scenes, and then you could still afford a second set like the PoA Knight Bus. WW is not an iconic build, though, but I'm not sure if that matters to you? Other than that, the Clock Tower will probably retire before the Astronomy Tower, and is GoF orientated (the next book in the series), whereas the AT is a HBP set. If you can get in on sale or at least take advantage of the double VIP points, they're could even be enough to pick up a smaller set as well. ETA: Just checked and Target still had GH available online And Walmart is showing it's in stock and free 2 day delivery

    But we've already had the House Crests this year as art sets... That seems a bit much. I wonder how they're selling.

    How sure are we it’s Dudley and not Neville? They both have pyjama scenes in the first book, and I thought there was some speculation it might be Longbottom from the scene where Hermione Petrificus Totaluses him as they leave the dorms.

    I just checked, and there are easily a third as many again McGonagalls available as Snapes or Filtwicks, and she too commands a higher price than the robeless Snape. (He’s the cheapest of the lot.) Lupin is so much more popular than the other two, though, and there were far more DADA scenes than Divination. A DADA series as a whole would be nice, really. Hooch would have been one of my choices because the Moments set would permit a decent vertical build without many pieces. Hooch, Neville and the statue he gets caught on as minifigs. Hagrid and the Skrewts... Someone here had made a nice MOC of them iirc. And I still want a ghosts pack. (I can’t see that as a Moments set or an accessory pack, though, because who would buy multiples? Oh! But they could do a Moments set with ghosts as the Death Day party, maybe a little like @Micmac’s MOC. I’d love that to pieces.)

    What’s interesting to me is Flitwick fetches a much better price than the (unspectacular) new Snape on BL, and is available in roughly similar quantities, so I’d have assumed the Charms set had a certain degree of popularity. I really hope we get new Moments sets.

    Nope, you’re in excellent company. The prelims hit mid-February (the 17th), and I think we spent about 50 pages by and large doing little more than expressing our disappointment with the new style. That said, personally I also like the Polyjuice incident / 3rd Floor Lavatory set, and I agree, the minifig selection appears to be pretty good as a whole. (Plus basilisk, Fluffy, and probably a new Fawkes.) In retrospect, I’m glad for the prelims. It’s given me time to adjust to the idea of the new sets, and by the time we get good pictures of the interiors, I’m sure I’ll be impressed with many of the details included. I generally am with this series.

    You actually prefer hp266 to hp100, say? (I still haven’t quite forgiven them for the lack of a cape. ) I thought Ron was in front of windows like some of the ones from DA? (So likely a. Hogsmeade store, as expected.) Hermione is on stairs with what appears to be a window in the castle’s walls (and a night sky) behind her.

    Thanks, Mordach. I was pretty sure it must be arches and not chess pieces behind him.

    Ooo! Right you are! The blue flame in 4706 the original Forbidden Corridor set... I’d forgotten that and the flute. Yes, the stone in the niche in the Potions Moments set sort of reminded me of those hidden titbits. I liked the call back.

    Other than Peeves, what were the book only things / details the sets included?
