    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I like the lego idea of making the broom handle separate from the broom bristles, so you can assemble different brooms with different handle colors. What I didn't like was the format of the broom bristles, they could have different formats and especially a format that had those prettier tips like the Nimbus 2000. And I could even create a new exclusive piece, without being reused, for the support of foot. About the material that is used for the brooms, I know what you are talking about, I have a broom from a 2001 set that is like this. But given the problem of brown parts breaking, I prefer scratched over broken.

    Oh yes, that would make a lot of sense, and it's an interesting reference to the history of lego bricks, I really loved that explanation, but on the Gryffindor House Banner set, Angelina also has an old model broom, I don't think they would put that model in this set if they wanted to still use the old model. I didn't particularly like the brooms update, yes it was something that needed to be updated and I've been wanting this since 2018 but I didn't like how it was executed by them in 2022.

    Sorry if someone already said this, but I didn't see it. Did you notice that LEGO went back on the new brooms? in the 2023 sets they returned to using the classic ones.

    Harry Potter custom builds and moc's

    With the new 2022 sets, I've made some updates to my old sets, keeping in mind that my goal is to try to repurpose as much of the 2018/2020 sets as possible because of their superior exterior architecture. I will only comment on the news, if there is any customization in the photo that I didn't mention here, go up the post where I previously commented on other things. Remembering that I relocated Dumbledore's office to the Great Hall set to take advantage of the spiral staircase, so I placed the new portal piece with the gargoyle entrance next to the stairs, in addition to that, I placed the Hogwarts flag in the middle of the great hall, honestly I'm surprised I didn't have this idea before, because I was wanting to take advantage of the flag that came on the set of Chamber of Secrets. Note: To fit the portal with gargoyle print on the side of the tower, it was necessary to increase the height of the tower by 1 block. About the second part of Hogwarts 2018, this is where things really got interesting, this part of the castle has the Gryffindor dormitory on the second floor, so I had previously transformed the first floor, which was previously a generic room, into the Gryffindor common room. However, this year there was the launch of the Hogwarts staircase set, so I wanted to somehow fit the staircase where the entrance to the Gryffindor common room has with my Gryffindor common room, but for that I had to create one more floor in that part of the Gryffindor dorm. Notice some details, in the architecture, such as the portal in the dormitory and the portal of the portrait of the fat woman, are not leveled, this was intentional to create a step down as it is in the movie, another detail is that in the book it is mainly said that the Gryffindor common room is in a tower, not that with the original architecture made by lego that part doesn't look like a tower, but with an extra floor it looks more like a tower. Now a novelty, since I needed to create a new ground floor, I needed to put something in this room, so I had the idea of creating Filch's room, I put a table with a envelope on top referring to the moment of the "express spell", I put a box with a confiscated filebuster firework, in the wall drawer I put the marauder's map and put handcuffs dangling referencing the dungeon chains that Filch keeps in his room. In the astronomy tower, I extinguished Slughorn's potions room and Christmas party decorations, and created a library. And on top of the tower I put a star map that came on the set of the Chamber of Secrets. The Chamber of Secrets, First Flight Lesson and Polyjuice Potion sets, I joined them in one, the bathroom was the obvious thing to do, but what is really interesting is that the part of the first flight lesson fits perfectly on top of the chamber secret, since another Great Hall was unnecessary, interesting is that I found out about these two parts fitting well one on top of the other by accident, when storing the new sets in the closet, to fit, I placed one on top of the other and I liked the result. I managed to replace all the green roof tiles with dark gray to match the other towers in the previous sets, and I turned the tower space into the cell where Sirius is in Prisoner of Azkaban. Also, I removed the part of the Basilisk's belly. The novelty of the precise room was the inclusion of the list of members of Dumbledore's army, but it was a person here on the forum who gave me this tip.

    Ever since I've been visiting the forum I've seen people complaining about characters who haven't gotten minifigures yet, Narcissa Malfoy, Bill Weasley, Aberforth Dumbledore, among others, but I've never seen anyone comment about not having made Fang yet. We need Fang.

    Guys, I know very well about the change of uniforms from the first two films to the rest of the films, I know every detail of it, even have you noticed an image that you are using in current products that is a complete montage? They mixed parts of the two uniforms. Continuing, what I wanted to say about inconsistency is that Lego never showed interest in wanting to be faithful to this issue of uniforms, and therefore in an unprecedented character that does not allow customizing (due to the Prefect badge) it decides to do it, which destandardizes the collection. Another stupid change has been putting the house symbol on sweaters since 2021.

    Now that the release of Percy's minifigure is approaching, do you already notice how unpatterned his uniform is? He doesn't have the red lining of the black robe, the black robe have two clasps in the front and the sweater has colored stripes on top near the neckline. I know it's just details and I won't stop buying just because of that, but it's something a little ugly in the collection. And the annoying thing is that I could just put Percy in an old uniform, however, on the torso he wouldn't have the Prefect badge which is something totally MANDATORY for him.

    Krum's hair I think is pretty good, the problem is the color, before they actually launched Krum in this new 2018 collection, I had bought an extra Dean Thomas just to get his hair to put on my 2005 Krum, and I liked him with that dark brown hair. Do you have any ideas for a good face for Krum?

    We've had enough Hoochs man, she has more minifigures than apparitions, and I'm not even talking about the movie haha. And overall she's well done, now what needed an urgent face update is Viktor Krum. About the uniforms of the other Hogwarts houses, I agree, they urgently need to release students from other houses in cheaper sets for the uniforms to become popular to buy separately, I need at least 1 full Ravenclaw uniform for Cho and 2 for Hufflepuff, for Susan Bones and Cedric.

    I totally agree with this about repeated or unnecessary minifigures. But you have to think about the context of the set, there was a need for them to do the Ministry of Magic this is indisputable, lego had two options to do the ministry of order of the phoenix or deathly hallows, if they chose order of the phoenix, the characters would be Harry , Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna, Dumbledore, Voldemort, Lucius and Bellatrix. And I don't know if you agree with me, but I prefer Mary Cattermole over Luna or Dumbledore. And Madam Pince, well, the library is an important place in Hogwarts, there was a need for them to do that, and it makes more than sense that the librarian would come on this set, now if you want to question Sinistra on the set of the chamber of secrets, you have all my support haha. Taking advantage of what I'm talking about here, I wanted to know if you don't agree with me about three of my frustrations. First, I definitely wanted not another Krum, but hey, they needed to make him a face more similar to the actor's, the current face has nothing to do with it, even the 2005 face was better than the current one. Second and third, don't you think that both the Slytherin Medallion and the Time Turner should be represented in lego as a medal accessory? being placed around their necks and not just as something that is placed in the minifigures' no.

    Aside from the final versions of Deathly Hallows in the final battle which are mandatory, I'm quite satisfied with versions of Ron and Hermione, with the exception of Ron in Quidditch outfit. And Harry, I think they just need to re-release an updated version of Harry from the second task, although the old one is still very good, but a new one is always good.

    [MOC] Hogwarts Library

    Wow, it turned out really good, after the inclusion of Madam Pince I'm also thinking about building a library at my Hogwarts, very interesting to see your ideas. Maybe it's good if you publish in the Harry Potter MOCs publication, so your construction will have more visibility. But anyway congratulations.

    WOW, seriously, congratulations, I really couldn't understand these things, but man the thing about the frogs is that there are A LOT of FROGS, no kidding, 9 frogs in different colors, this was not common to see. Got it, interesting curiosity! Thanks Yes, but I bought these on Ebay, I'm from Brazil and I never leave my country, can you believe I've never even tasted the frog's chocolate? haha And I have all the cards.

    And this year is no different, only cards come in a few sets. I wanted to comment on something I noticed, they put a sticker of the bird gargoyle that is on the door to Dumbledore's office in a portal that doesn't open, they made it just as a wall, I found it super boring. Another thing, can someone explain to me why there are these objects scattered on the ceiling of the Chamber of Secrets set? such as a crystal ball, a bottle, a chess board, etc. And why are there so many frogs scattered around the Chamber of Secrets set?
