    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    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.

    I think I was expecting to be disappointed by the books, but honestly, they might be some of my favorite sets so far. They really capture the look of the classrooms and the book function is actually pretty good too. It really feels like Lego took the Disney Princess book concept and reworked it into a much better product. I have to give the designers major credit for really making that concept work. I don't even mind the stickered windows (I'm assuming they're stickers). I can easily see myself getting duplicates of these. Hopefully the minifigures turn out as wonderfully as the builds. Good job Lego!

    Hey kids, want to run down Doc Ock in a monster truck!?! I miss the Spiderman movie sets from 20 years ago. Abandoned Warehouses, sinister labs with machinery, and street scenes that actually captured the action and setting of the Spiderman franchise. But sure, more red and blue vehicles. Now with a garage to park them in! Maybe I'll Bricklink a few figures, maybe they won't mostly be repeats like last time.

    I think that makes a lot of sense. One side is the common room featuring a student for the house, and the other side is the classroom of the house head featuring a random student.

    They're traditional minifigures, they mention short legs and dual molded legs specifically.

    I'm really excited for these. I've been really wanting some classroom sets, in the vein of what the first Harry Potter line offered. Interesting that Sprout has dual molded legs, perhaps a Deathly Hallows variation? I believe she wears pants in that movie. Since Sprout and Flitwick are new, I'm going to go out on a limb and say Mcgonagall and Snape might be too. Which would make sense given that these two haven't really been updated since their initial introduction in the theme. I'm hoping for a new hat for Mcgonagall, the old witch hat is starting to show its age (And a dress slope). And Snape could definitely use some new facial expressions (but he doesn't really need anything beyond that). I'm hoping they at least give Ron and Hermione some new face expressions since they're stuck with the same old sweaters. It would be great if they manage to include the remaining robes too.

    Looking at the pictures more, the only thing I strongly dislike about the minifigures is that they decided to use school robes for the designs for Harry, Ron, Hermione and Draco, whereas what they're wearing in that scene is actually capes over casual clothing. I feel like it would have been more accurate to give them cloth capes instead, especially since we've gotten some good cape designs in recent years that are actually pretty close to what's seen in the movie. On one hand, I get the decision to go the route they did, it's cheaper and these are designs that can be reused elsewhere as needed (it's admittedly nice to get some variation to the robes). On the other hand it kind of sucks to put generic variants in a $400 set, especially when this would have been a good opportunity to remake Draco and Hermione's sweaters (Which debuted in the original line almost 20 years ago). Also, it's funny to me that we got Quidditch uniforms for all houses before we got robes for all the houses. Who would have thought, lol.

    What a bizarre announcement. Unclear wording. 3 minifigure reveals. One quarter of the set revealed in the foreground of a video. Links that go nowhere. I'm perplexed by how this has been handled so far.

    My main fear with including the Quidditch shop was that it would be kind of lame to get a shop full of outdated Fabuland brooms. Now that I've seen the final product... Yeah, it looks kind of lame to have a shop peddling Fabuland Brooms. I mean, it makes no sense to me that they'll create a special box for wands to recreate one scene, but they won't give us a proper riding broom.

    I don't expect there to be multiple variations of characters. Seems weird to me if they do that. I expect the Sorcerer's Stone variation of Harry to come with a cloak so he can double as a Chamber of Secrets version. Based on how many Chamber of Secrets references we got this year, I expect a good amount of minifigures will be from this movie (Hermione, Ron, Draco, Lucius). I also wouldn't be surprised if Molly showed up in this set. I feel like her minifigure was really phoned in for the Burrow set. The same was true for Bellatrix and Ginny and parts to fix them appeared in the CMF, so I suspect a better version of Molly will appear in Diagon Alley to fix her mediocre variant in the Burrow (I also feel like some sort of parental figure should appear with these kids given the setting).

    He makes legoleak news videos, he already stated he knows as much as the rest of us. This doesn't need to escalate to the usual witch hunt.

    I'm really looking forward to this minifigure lineup. I'm hoping to fill in some gaps like Lockhart, Lucius and the Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff student robes. I'm also hoping they take this opportunity to introduce a new broom. The old one looks pretty out of place in the current sets.

    Ginny in Gryffindor robes would be a waste unless it was to introduce legs that had printing to represent a skirt under the robe (I know it's a small detail, but it does annoy me that they haven't bothered to represent that, especially this year when they've had no problem doing skirt printing for plenty of other characters). Otherwise we have quite a few Gryffindor robe variations already.
