    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oh, I always thought that it looked more like the door was connected to the bottom floor of the tower and that it was hinged. I have mixed feelings about it now that I know what it is on one hand it will probably be able to slide open which is nice and more accurate instead of swinging open. On the other hand now it well seem really out of place considering that anyone who wants to get in would have to climb the mountain (or hill or cliff whichever it is) to get in to the COS. I just figured out the real reason there were no attacks from the basilisk for years after Salazar Slytherin built the COS the basilisk was having trouble climbing the mountain!

    Thanks for answering. I bet the middle floor of the great hall tower is a class room and the bottom is the part of the chamber of secrets where Ron and Lockhart wait while Harry goes off and saves Ginny. I am surprised about the location of the building to the far right of the great hall in the original wasn't there something like it where a boat could go through it (I could be totally off here) but it might end up being some kind of boat house or at least something for a boat to go through though I doubt it considering as far I know it doesn't have a boat to go through it included.

    I have a few quick questions directed at our reliable leakers if anyone could answer it would be highly appreciated but otherwise I can wait. Which variant of Dumbledore is going to come in the great hall? What (if any) class rooms are going to be in the great hall set? Is the second level of the tower in the great hall set 1 rectangular section or 2 small cubes? Same question for the bottom level of the tower. How does the part of the great hall on the far right connect to the castle? It seems like it would look out of place right next to the other parts. Why does one 2x6 in the great halls roof have a slightly different tilt then the rest of the roof? It is completely fine with me if none of you can answer my questions just thought I might as well try asking them.

    [ALT BUILD] 71735 Bolobo's Hover-Raft

    Bolobo is the nature guy right? The MOC is much better than anything I could do with using only pieces from one set and having that limitation. That said, It doesn't really feel like something Bolobo would have I think it would seem more like his kind of thing if it had more greenery which I can understand why it doesn't because the set it comes from only has a few pieces that would fit if I remember correctly. Also, it seems a little bit to modern for Bolobo to pilot I think it would seem more fitting to him if it was pulled by animals or plants or something like that from what I remember from the show he isn't very smart (I could be completely off with that) so it doesn't really fit that he has a hovercraft. But, there were no animals or tons of plant elements included in the set so I can understand why it doesn't have that. On the positive side of things, the building techniques used are very original and creative I especially like how you made the ladder to get up to the second floor and the turbine those are both great. Also, including the garden on top is great I think that is the one thing that really connects it to Bolobo and how you crammed so much greenery into that small space is impressive. Overall using the Lego ideas system to review it I would give it: 5/5 for originality I would never have thought of Bolobo in a hovercraft. 5/5 again for building techniques it had some very clever piece usage. 3/5 for details it had a lot of nice little details but that it doesn't have more greenery really takes away from it. Overall 13/15 Good job with it I do like it and it is better than anything I could do but could be better at the same time.

    I think these might actually be real with what Clone OPatra has said about the torsos not matching anything we have and none of our reliable leakers having denied that these are real usually when a fake leak happens Guyon2002 or someone else is on here within the hour marking it as fake and with what brick clicker said: He says is skeptically not that he is sure it is fake or real and as far as I remember no one has claimed to know what the D2C is after everything changed so I at least think these are real.

    I thought the chess set was $60? Did something change or is it still $60? My hopes for the chess set turning out well are slightly higher now but with all the changes that have happened I am going to reserve any further comment until it leaks.

    Logically speaking I think your right if Lego really wanted it to be a nice displayable chess set than it would probably be much bigger I think a shrunken chess set being scaled down a little bit isolates both the kid fans of Lego's who most would have little interest in getting a chess set that is only seen in one scene when instead there is things like the great hall, clock tower, Hogsmeade, and more on the market and for adult collectors who are into chess like me I personally (as I think you all know by now) have less and less interest the smaller the set gets I think what is most likely will be their is 2-3 medium sized rooms the chess one is the biggest with 6 game pieces on a square grid with 4 squares in each row and then 2 other challenge rooms probably the room of winged keys and the final challenge. I hope it is a nice fully usable chess set with tons of new molds but I don't see that happening.

    Well actually, there might be if it still has the rumored 876 piece count. Though I would be disappointed if it took that route I can see the "chess set" becoming the chess set with 6 game pieces and a few other challenges to.

    Couldn't agree more. Why did the brick built Harry and Hermione not get changed? If anything could have been gotten rid without me caring it was that. Fawkes would have been amazing with 900 pieces being able to go into making it. The chess set being shrunk is disappointing but at this point I can really only see it now as an add on to Hogwarts and anniversary style or not that is nice to have because Hogwarts expansions have always been great in the past and with a enormous display piece ruled out a Hogwarts expansion would be my second choice. The designers have never released a set I would truly deem horrible (the carriage from 2019 comes close though which is why I skipped it) so maybe it will turn out nicely. Also, can anyone confirm whether the piece counts are still accurate for the set numbers they go with? A 900 piece chess set/Hogwarts expansion could be great. Can the people with the information share what the $40 or $30 sets were going to be or just whichever one we now know is no longer coming what it was?

    Guyon2002 has given comments have given me some optimism. If the chess set's price could be slightly lowered and maybe any castle parts that were planned to go with it gotten rid of I would be fine it might even be better it would depend on how big the chess set was it. It would be really nice though if the chess set had a wall which could be used as the castle's underground to go beneath the great hall that could come on and off. I don't want anything to change about buildable Fawkes it sounds great as is. Getting rid of the buildable figures for nearly anything else would be Great as well. Throw in a battle of Hogwarts D2C is the $250 slot, make the $30 and $40 expansions to the D2C, and and the wave becomes the best one of the reboot to me. All right I just caught up with what had changed and now my optimism is gone. I just laughed to myself that Guyon2002's and Falconfan1414's prophecy of you will be shocked and surprised at how bad it is just came true for people who had it hadn't already now at some point all of us have experienced a horrible shock say what you will about them but their information and leaks and speculation about our reaction has never been wrong.

    I mainly meant something like where MandR last year got the 501st legion set to come out but a Reverse of that scenario.

    Am I the only one disappointed that things are changing? I never wanted a huge Gringotts but would have (and maybe still will) buy the chess set in a second. Did some idiot on YouTube get all their followers to ask Lego to change the chess set plans? I am now really afraid that we are going back to hoping for our dream set wave and have hope for all our #1 picks and then it will turn out to be something no one would want to buy and be worse for all of us. Now the chess might end up as a set for minidolls or duplo. To all of you who complained about the chess set was it really your worst nightmare? Because I can see much worse possibilities coming. I am holding out hope that the changes are just additions to the wave and not changing the sets. Quote Thank God, there is still hope!

    Oh, so most of the august wave information was bull s***? Did I miss something and KA1 was full of crap from the beginning? But Lego Fulcrum (I think it was) said he was right and then we assumed (making a a** of you and me as some would say) and then as far as I can tell Guyon2002, Falconfan1414, and Brick clicker never exactly confirmed this information just saying vague things such as "the cat is out of the bag" and such and then we all jumped on what KA1 had said and made a**** of ourselves? Wow, we are fools. On the bright side I now have a chance to bring out my newly polished pitchfork. Mods if you haven't all ready can you ban KA1?

    I would feel hugely disappointed I never really thought about how much I wanted it until I had no choice but to accept it when it leaked that it was going to come out as the D2C. When I first heard about it I was disappointed I had hoped for a battle of Hogwarts but now with every day that goes by I get more and more excited for it I know Lego will go all out with the pieces and it will look gorgeous as a huge D2C which is really the only way I can see us getting a good movie accurate version.

    So what we learned today was that: $250-chess set $120-Harry and Hermione brick built figures $60, $40, or $30 is Fawkes Cornish pixies are coming out in one of the summer sets (at least) Am I missing anything? And KA1 knew this all along. Apologies for not believing you three or four weeks ago. $250 chess set didn't manage to fit Guyon2002s description of a horrible surprise instead the opposite way around I will buy if it connects with the rest of the castle or if it doesn't either way I'm happy though I think it would probably look nicer by itself and not connected to anything else but it would need to have at least one of the following for me to get it a unique golden minifigure(s) (I like them), the golden trio in unique outfits, or the pieces are brick built. I am a lifelong chess fan and had a chess set with pieces about 3-5 feet tall in my back yard at my old house before my job changed and I needed to move. I had my eye on a nice new chess set on Ebay that I had been bidding on for a few days and this morning I decided to check the forum and see if anything had leaked I was shocked to see a chess set was coming (and that it was KA1 who had leaked it) I decided to give up on the one on Ebay so I could instead get this one (my wallet's $2,000 happier) it turned out I had been outbid anyways so I didn't bother placing another bid. I am thrilled we are getting one and I think it will probably look amazing. For the brick built figures that was a bad surprise that will be an easy skip for me (which means $120 towards the UCS AT-AT instead). Fawkes was another nice surprise I got Hedwig last year and it was a great build and makes an even better display piece. I am excited to see how they make him hopefully standing straight up with wings stretched out and some way to make them flap. So now there is only 2 sets left unknown right? (or 1 if we assume flying lesson or quidditch is one of them).
