    On the US site? Only Fawkes, the figures and Chess set are showing for me.

    It's a bit plain, but I like how faithfully it recreates the scene, so I'll probably end up getting it. Hermione's lack of skirt is still annoying me, I'll be swapping out the legs for one of the Powerpuff Girls leg pieces and either use Cho's gray skirt (cut down) or customize one of the Trolls skirts. I saw Otherworldy Customs version of COS Hermione and it really annoys that Lego hasn't properly represented the Hogwarts skirt as of yet. Lego will do skirts for party dresses and teachers, but standard school uniform skirts keep getting passed over despite literally every female student wears them.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Honestly, my only real want out of this set is a #121 Gwen Stacy (though I'd take just about any version at this point), as this is probably one of the few sets she could appear in. My main complaint about Spider-Man sets in general since the Superheroes theme began has been a lack of supporting characters. The old movie sets were really well balanced in this regard, Spidey can't always be guarding bank vaults and jewel trucks, it makes sense for him to occasionally be saving actual people. So hopefully Lego takes this opportunity to flesh out the Spiderverse a little bit more. I'm tired of variation after variation of the same characters.

    The ears are in front of the wings, they just blend since they're all the same color.

    I wouldn't mind if the August wave contained remakes of older sets too. I'd love to have a remake of the Gryffindor Common Room, the flying lesson, the winged keys and the vaults of Gringotts.

    Is the Beauty and the Beast set normal minifigures or still minidolls?

    I feel like people are being a bit too gloom and doom about these sets, I doubt one year of less than amazing sets is signaling the downfall of the theme. Yes, they're simpler and more kidified than usual, but in fairness, the first two movies are all out kids movies, so I think it makes sense that the sets would reflect that. Even Hogwarts was simpler looking in those movies, with inconsistent architecture and geography. In a way, these sets sort of reflect that vibe. As for the lack of DH sets, I can't say I'm surprised. As much as I love the DH movies, I don't think they're great set fodder outside of the Ministry of Magic and Gringotts. At the end of the day, there are toys and a lot of the content of DH doesn't lend itself that well, whether it's torture, terrorist attacks or just moody and depressing conversations, I think it's a tougher sell. None of this is to say that Lego won't eventually adapt these things into sets, I just think it makes them lower priorities on the list. Too, given the controversy around the Fantastic Beasts series and JK Rowling herself, is anyone that surprised that Lego is going with safe, uncontroversial, perfectly kid friendly sets this year?

    Yeah, the torso doesn't look like it belongs to Sinistra. The print looks more like robes over a vest over a shirt. I get the feeling this the Lockhart torso.

    I like that the green roofs are back for these sets, it's a great reference to the original theme and I'm on board for that. It's interesting that these 3 Hogwarts sets can combine and don't mix with the previous extensions. It makes me wonder if the exterior of these sets will match the exterior of the early Hogwarts castle. If that's the case, I'm okay with this being a separate modular Hogwarts from the other Hogwarts parts we've received. Hogwarts has definitely gone through a lot of changes, having a model matching the original movie model is actually pretty cool to me. Once again, I'm hoping they take this opportunity to fix some of the uniform variation issues. Getting the remaining robe variants would be great. But I'm also hoping they finally correct the lack of skirts for female students. They could easily give Hermione a gray version of the trolls skirt piece in these sets. Last year it annoyed me that they had no problem doing skirt printing for all those party dress variations, but for a standard Hogwarts uniform it still hasn't happened.

    Ashnflash just showed it in his video. It's shows the very top of the tie, but shows no house colors. So it can work for any house, which I think is for the better. It's bad enough waiting for regular style house robes for each house, glad we don't have to add Herbology robes to the list.
  11. A very meh series to me. There's so many recycled concepts from earlier series, and if these old ideas also were also at the old price tag, I'd be more forgiving about it. But $5 a hit is a little too much for a what almost amounts to new variants of existing minifigures. Still, the hermit crab and violin are great. And a recolor of the Centaur legs is welcomed, so it's not a complete waste. I sort of imagine they're probably pushing more resources towards the Universal Music series, hence the lackluster CMF series.

    The balcony pieces are the same pieces making up the bay windows in the house too. Those will be super useful.

    It's so weird to me that the Friends line is introducing curved windows next year when it would have made way more sense to introduce them this year in Diagon Alley. Hopefully they get recoulored in black pretty quickly, it'd be great to use them on Ollivanders.

    I like student torsos. I'll take an anniversary throwback design over reissuing the same designs again and again.

    The Ideas set is emulating a pop up book and is basically a display item that caters to a different audience. As a result I can't say it's overly comparable to the other sets other than it involves a book made of lego. The other sets are playsets that are stored inside of a book, and contain detachable elements and play features. The HP books are a more clear evolution of the Disney books than they are the Ideas book.
