    I think gitd nick in 2021 may have been a tribute to the original sets which had gitd figures like Snape and Voldemort. Since then we have had Myrtle in 22 and the Grey Lady in 23, both grey, so hopefully 24 follows suit!

    1. Finding out who the ghost and teacher are. 2. Getting an idea of what the new most detailed hogwarts ever looks like. The rest I can wait on 😁

    There have been plenty of lego pubs or inns before, as well as a leaky Cauldron sign so I think it's very much in contention.

    I don't think we need to worry too much about merchandise for the show replacing that if the movies for sometime yet. Compare the upcoming show with Game of Thrones for example - both big book series with plenty of cgi and large casts. Not a perfect comparison but not a bad one! On GOT, the show runners and author were ready to work together in 2006, development started 2007, the pilot shot in 2009, the series finished shooting in 2010 and was released in 2011. HPTV may already be doing some pre-production work, but the showrunner will not be in place for about three months. The idea the show will be ready for release in two years then looks dubious.

    You're right, however I think having those two sets in the same wave is the problem, not the minifig lineup.

    The potions classroom is situated under the viaduct entrance in the films and games so hopefully it can be added there in a possible future set

    Interesting we only get one of the Trio in the advent calender, not a bad thing tbh. We can tick the troll off the list then! I hope by Sinistra they mean Vector in the Great Hall - both non speaking roles after all. Two ghosts and three students could be interesting - we could get the Fat Friar (there is a Hufflepuff Common Room...) and the Bloody Baron, but they could easily be repeated characters. The three students - I hope for Alicia Spinnet, Millicent Bulstrode and Ernie MacMillan as it is based on the early films, but I could very easily be disappointed 😁

    The films cut some good things from the book series which may have been necessary but disappointing, but cutting most of the story of the house elves was very a good call. It's never a good idea to have your hero be a slave owner. The house elves role in the books also shows a massive problem with the story - the wizarding world is heavily biased against house elves, goblins and centaurs. You would expect the book series to address and heal this divide in society, but no systemic change really occurs by the end of DH. Problems of the book series aside, the release date is likely to be pushed back a year or two as these things often are. I also think the chance of any lego sets from the reboot this decade are low.

    The amount of GoF figures this year makes me think Yule Ball is fairly likely for the advent calender so some could be repeated. The Harry and Ron variants I mentioned before could be joined by Hermione in her dress using one of the newer plastic pieces and medium legs. Side builds could also include plenty of Durmstrang and Beauxbatons stuff.

    Very much so! To keep them interesting, Harry and Ron take their jackets off later in the ball for a new variant for 2/3 of the trio. We got the jacketless Harry back in the old 2010 line. McGonagall and Moody too!

    I was thinking of Fred and George's Weasley jumpers (Percy wears one too but it's barely seen) and Hagrid's fluffy coat from PS would make good new figures.

    Cheers, it was a very good idea, thanks got pointing it out!

    I would love Grimmauld Place or Christmas at the Burrow - neither are particularly fun but would have good figures. Fully expect Lego to go for a Christmas in films 1-4 and tbh as long as the calender is good I don't think it matters now if there are no new characters, as long as the builds are good and their are variants of exists minifigs.

    Uh, no, she did not. She was in this outfit in the last set. Fleur also wears the Beauxbatons jacket, as Gabrielle was wearing in the original post at times.

    I agree it should be one of those, I wouldn't be opposed to this variant though if it came down to it.
