    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I gave up on the theme this year months ago so I don’t even have any energy to care about the D2C anymore. I’ll give them one more year but if next year is just more buildable object crap then I’ll just stop following the theme

    Gonna be honest, I think the 2018 style Hogwarts sets are done. Wouldn’t expect another expansion.

    How early did we hear about Diagon Alley? I hope the D2C set info isn’t too far away.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    10k or 20k isn’t going to change LEGO’s ultimate decision. Just because there’s 45 projects doesn’t mean LEGO is going to choose more or less. They’ll still deny all of them except the LEGO telescope or whatever wacky display piece is next to be covered.

    $50 and a chocolate hat that the D2C is a Technic Ford Anglia. Sorry to spoil it @Guyon2002 and @Falconfan1414

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I find it hilarious how many Ideas sets have been made the past couple weeks that are literally just Medieval Blacksmith ripoffs with a few different colors and shapes. Gotta be a little more creative than that.

    I know we’re likely never to know company politics or what really went down, but all I have to say is that I hope Marcos leaving that Creative Lead role for the HP line doesn’t symbolize what I believe could be a negative turning point for the theme. Based on the past few years you would think LEGO had nailed it when it comes to understanding the HP fan base. I really don’t know what the reason was for a drastic change, except for it being the 20th Anniversary, an anniversary that many people don’t get in the first place. I guess we’ll have a better idea of the LEGO team’s vision for the future when we see what they do for the 2022 wave.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I’ve never understood this logic. Why not wish it’s the best set it can be and then use your adult senses to keep yourself from buying it if you can’t afford it. (Assuming you’re an adult lol) Otherwise we should just wish every LEGO set ever is terrible so we never have to buy anything anymore I’m sure these comments are half-joking but still a pet peeve of mine lol

    I would love a SS Gringotts, though at $250 there would need to be more than just Gringotts, so having Leaky Cauldron as well would be *chef’s kiss*

    This guy on reddit did it a few years ago Funny enough, it was for betting that Bitcoin wouldn’t cross $1,000. Man if we only knew what was coming at that point lol

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    So for once LEGO actual keeps something a secret, at least for a bit longer! This must mean that it’s a fairly big deal. Personally, I think the only two ideas that could require a big secret are a massive Gringotts play set or an expansion to the micro scale Hogwarts. I would be very excited for both

    Out of this wave I will buy Hogsmeade and then quickly erase the rest out of my mind and hope they come to their senses in 2022 Gonna spend more time making my own MOCs this year I think.

    The Harry + Hermione thing is obviously aiming to be similar to the Mickey + Minnie Buildable set.

    I wish the best set of the year (Hogsmeade) could have been bumped up to the $120 set. Would love to have more of that set.

    I love that the one redeeming quality people seem to mention is that it’s SO bad that LEGO is almost forcing you to save money as if it’s not possible to just not buy a set of a good wave.

    I’m fine with it too because I think I’m going to spend my entire budget on the BrickLink sets lol at least some people aren’t letting me down this year

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Honestly I think LEGO is seeing how popular sets like the Bonsai Tree and Flowers and Hedwig are and are planning accordingly. It’s just how many of these kind of sets do we need before it’s stale

    LMAO it’s like they’re trying to make the most unappealing 2021 wave they possibly can for me

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well if it makes any difference, I’m speaking from what I’ve talked about with my managers at the LEGO store, which are pretty adamant that the theme is impossible to describe/sell to kids. We hardly sell any Yea I’m being overly dramatic but hey it comes from my passion for the series. I guess we’ll find out how it does soon enough. I’d put money down on a $250 chess set not being popular with the mainstream crowd.
