    Personally I think the main viaduct should be a separate set. It will be a large enough # of bricks that the price point could be a $35-45 USD set. I just don't know if there is an iconic of enough scene that can be done on it. The small back viaduct will be included in either of the towers it connects to, but I would be surprised if it was in both of them. EDIT: Was thinking more and I think the only scene from the movies from the Viaduct would be McGonagall before the Battle of Hogwarts deploying the statues. Doesn't feel like that scene would be good enough for a set.

    Affordable sets in the modular castle system. Besides the Owlery, those other sets are not in the castle system. The castle system prices are 38, 40, 45, and 200 USD.

    I agree, there is plenty of underground scenes left to include. Just noting that they take up budget in the sets making it harder to do affordable small sets above ground. Unless they separate them but it seems Lego is avoiding making sets in this system that can't stand alone, but I am sure the designers will get creative and find a solution.

    The issue with expanding beyond the picture is the dungeons. Lego might have shot themselves in the foot with including dungeons actually below ground because now every other set needs them as well so that the entire system is on the same level. Clearly exterior is a priority in this system so I don't expect that approach to change. What that means is a decent amount of the budget for sets going forward will be spent on things like the bathroom and Hufflepuff common room and not expanding the castle outward. What I am more interested in is the Hogwarts related sets that aren't part of the system. This could be a way to get our first Greenhouse set or eventually a new Quidditch pitch set which could be easily combined with the system.

    We only got four sets specific to the new modular castle this year. Those you mention could be integrated with it, but are not designed with that purpose. Just like The Black Lake set last year was not part of the old modular castle. I expect we will get 4 sets each year for 3 years total. 12 total specific sets for the modular castle.

    Does Lego ever run deals during the Hogwarts GWP week or is it just the GWP? Wondering both about 2x VIP points and specific set sales.

    Hoping that it is a modular classroom similar to the Potions Classroom set but just a little simpler and less figures so that is falls within the GWP requirements.

    One of the reviews (Tiago Catarino), showed the new pictures of where the sets fit and gives more confirmation the blurred image is correct.

    Oh, I believe you are correct just wish it was different. Since this won't be the complete castle (that would take 6+ years of sets), when I MOC the remaining sections maybe I will just include an empty dungeon for this to slide into.

    The Star Wars summer wave is delayed 2 months this year so I would assume it is the same thing for Harry Potter. And it is only delayed for NA. Overall disappointed in the potions classroom set because there is no added exterior. It is great for play and customizability but it feels like a wasted set in the modular castle lineup if you want a detailed interior AND exterior of the castle. Going to wait till next year to think about purchasing it and see if one on next year's wave has a an incomplete dungeon you can slide this into.

    Honestly battle packs like Star Wars make very little sense for Harry Potter because no one is building an army of Harrys, Lunas, etc..... Battle packs work well for figures you want 10+ of that are the same (or for some 100+), which I just don't think there are for a theme like Harry Potter besides maybe dementors. Also Star Wars has 2x the number of sets a year because of its popularity so there are more things they can experiment with there.

    I think you are right with that is comes with its own castle section that it can slide out of. Based on price and leaked piece count it seems to be around the size of the boathouse with more smaller pieces, so I am guessing it will be a rock cliff exterior that something in the 2025 wave will sit on. And the slide out portion is a play feature more than a modularity feature.

    75954 only had 2 rows of tables. This new Great Hall has 2 rows and seems to be about the same length as 2018 if not longer.

    Honestly I would rather take 1/2 of the castle decently detailed, versus pieces of the castle that don't match the actual layout. Which is what we are getting if the booklet image is the full wave. Then I will just MOC the rest of the castle and make it complete.

    Those four connection points are interesting. Dumbledore's Tower (Marble Staircase) would only need the 2 middle connection points. And the front one would connect to the bridge. The back one makes me wonder if connecting set to this will "complete" the Great Hall.
