    I reckon it's Justin Finch-Fletchley in the Herbology one instead of Cedric. Looking at pictures of the actor, it would make sense for him to use the same hairpiece as Cedric, hence the confusion. Also given Seamus is in the Potions classroom (where he frequently causes explosions), I think he'll be getting a 'blown-up' face print.

    So it looks like there is a new wand box piece And Lockhart's cape is double sided

    This is really well done! Absolutely love the design and it's quite accurate to the film with the inclusion of the barrels and bottles. I think it will fit in very well with the new DA.

    Same - this is what I had in mind when visualising the entrance. And I am always blown away by the detail inside each of those shops.

    Yes it is.

    I'm thinking about getting at least one extra Ginny and Bellatrix to swap out their faces in the burrow (and for Ginny's new glass piece).

    Diagon Alley looks incredible from the pictures I've seen - I absolutely love Ollivanders and Flourish and Blotts (although I am really sad that they didn't include Madam Malkin's). I actually don't really mind the pink on QQS - I'm more confused about the fact that (to me at least) on the packaging it appears as the centerpiece of the set - both due to its shape and size. I had expected that WWW would take that role, and was therefore left a bit surprised that QQS is the largest shop. Although I hope that the eventual Gringotts set rectifies this! Since the leak, I've been thinking a lot about possibilities for 2021 sets (mainly DH-based sets), and so I've written below some of my ideas - I'd be really interested to hear your thoughts about these! ≈$15 - Battle of Seven Potters - Hagrid's Motorbike build with some scenery, includes Hagrid and Harry, and a Death Eater or two on broomsticks (maybe Snape?) ≈$15 - Forbidden Forest - the remake of the old set with Harry, Voldemort and Narcissa (I don't see us getting a Malfoy Manor Set and it's probably one of the only ways that we'll get a Narcissa minifigure) ≈$20 - Hogwarts battle - Small sidebuilds with exploding battlements and play features; with Voldemort, Harry, Neville and Nagini, a Death Eater (and maybe an Ootp member? Maybe Aberforth?) ≈$20 - Forest of Dean - Small tent build with a couple of trees; with the trio, a doe patronus, and a snatcher or two ≈$30 - Bill and Fleur's Wedding (the compulsory HP costume-themed set) - a marquee build with lots of food and drinks, which displays nicely next to the burrow; with Harry, Bill, Fleur, Ron, Hermione, maybe with Kingsley's Patronus and a character like Great-Aunt Muriel or Elphias Doge ≈$30 - Ministry Escape - with the interrogation/court room (and maybe a floo powder fireplace?); with Umbridge with the locket, the trio in their disguises, a dementor and Yaxley ≈$50 - Grimmauld Place - based on Ootp (potentially), similar design to Privet Drive and the shops in Diagon Alley; with Sirius, Kreacher, Harry, Ron, Hermione and maybe Tonks? Or Arthur? Or Ginny? ≈$70 - Hogwarts Bell Towers (or some other large Hogwarts extension) based on the Battle of Hogwarts, with the Room of Hidden Things, and maybe something like the library or Slytherin common room; includes a brick-built ogre, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, the Grey Lady, Draco, Zabini or Goyle, Molly, Bellatrix, maybe Fenrir Greyback ≈$100 - Gringotts based on DH with the entrance area, a couple of vaults and hopefully some tracks and a cart (don't know how they'll convey the underground aspect though); with a brick-built Ukrainian Ironbelly, a couple of goblins, the Hufflepuff Cup, and the trio in their disguises (and maybe a security guard?) As much as I'd love them, I don't see TLG doing sets of the Lovegoods's House, Malfoy Manor or Shell Cottage - the buildings aren't really recognisable themselves and what happens there is either very violent (Malfoy Manor) or quite boring (Shell Cottage - apart from Dobby's heartbreaking death). I'm quite interested to see whether Lego will reuse the new Gryffindor Sword piece from the CMF - it is in quite a few key scenes in DH, but then I can see them keeping it exclusive to Griphook. I would hate to go back to just a regular sword piece though (like in the Clocktower) In the UK, I still haven't found anything...

    I just really hope we get Rita Skeeter in DA - it would be a missed opportunity to not include her imo. Also, does anyone else think that we might get some Monster Book of Monsters in Flourish and Blotts to mirror the scene in Prisoner of Azkaban? I know that it's a brand new accessory in the CMF (and pretty much the only reason to get Neville) but they did this with the Mandrake in the AT. Then again, it's probably unlikely if they're just focusing on the Lockhart scene.

    I've been looking and haven't found anything!

    Does anyone else really want a Lee Jordan minifigure? He was always a favourite of mine in the books. It kind of feels like he was merged with Dean Thomas in Series 1, but then again he could be a perfect CMF candidate with a new hairpiece.

    Is it likely that there will be another Harry Potter Bricktober pack this year? Because that could contain certain minifigures like Mrs Pomfrey that aren't in this CMF but are unlikely to appear elsewhere

    This is quite a clear picture of Ginny's outfit, and I'm actually really pleased we're getting a Ginny - it felt like she was left out in the last CMF
