    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I really like the look of these classrooms, but can't quite justify over £100 on them so will wait for a sale, even if it's only a few quid. Would like the see the Herbology students without the earmuffs though. I may save the big stickers for use on other pieces though.

    The CMF 21 violin player may do for the cello player in the Weird Sisters too, otherwise not much for HP fans this series.
  3. Not forgetting the violin, a great piece for a minstrel or something.

    Useful Pirate Pieces from other Themes?

    CMF series 21has a dolphin (new colour I think), a violin/fiddle, a native warrior and a castaway.

    I quite like HBP, the day to day Hogwarts life was back after two films which I really enjoyed, and Slughorn is so different to how I imagines him, but I like Jim Broadbent a lot. To each their own I think it is a popular choice to be a set but its the one HP location that doesn't interest me :)

    2021 is 20 years of PS as well. I must admit that the final two films are my least favourite along with GoF, however I do still like them and DHII Hogwarts is my favourite version of the castle. I'd love to see what they come up with for this wave with some really interesting architecture in those films (Godric's Hollow, Shell Cottage, Love good House) and loads of great figures. One set I'm sure we'll get is Malfoy Manor, and for some reason I've always disliked that location.

    There are also house crest hoodies and jumpers which appear later in the series, or the Hogwarts Crest hoodie Seamus wears in GoF. Oh, and dedicated house Herbology outfits, and the plain uniforms worn before students are sorted. Or, if this idea was used in a few waves time, Lego could use different costumes for the four Heads of Houses than we've had before and only two students. Slughorn could replace Snape too. Or include the House Ghosts.

    I must admit I don't quite understand this argument. So far I think you could make the case that the Beauxbaton's Carriage was a little left field and the Hedwig large scale creature isn't for everyone, but that's only two £35 sets in two different waves. Apart from the Horntail set which I think most people agree was the weakest of the line so far, I'd say all sets were really high quality and also 'key'. If there is a new wave in 2022, I suppose the inclusion of Privet Drive in the 2020 wave could be seen as premature as the Ford Anglia was present in two sets on the shelves at once. Otherwise I think the balance has been pretty good. The good thing about Star Wars now is the sets since about 2012 have been pretty good, and the remakes haven't been drastic improvements so I feel content skipping, and maybe just buying the odd torso or face from sets I've skipped. I think the CMF has really helped this theme get a lovely balance between figures and sets. So far there have been only been 17 main sets. The two 'UCS' sets, one large creature set, two advent calenders, one student pack and a few GWP/Polybags have bolstered the line for those that want extra. Apart from Neville in CMF Series 2, all the figures have been great (his MBOM is brilliant, but the figure is so similar to (Harry/Hermione in Series 1). Right now my guess is another four years and two CMF Series would be the limit before any major repetitions occur in the Happy Potter line, but that's just a guess and without seeing the 2021 wave.

    I just realised Sprout is a new print, which seems pointless as the CMF is only about six months old. Unlike Snape which is shows him wearing his normal robes in the same way, Sprout's is just the same again. I'd like to see what's underneath the earmuffs on the Herbology robes, if anything, to see if the new prints have House markings on. A recolour of the piece used for Neville's first CMF hair would be great in black, reddish brown, dark orange, etc for the male students, and the Hidden Side girl for the female students. Using the new badges as Prefect badges is a great idea, if only there was a Hufflepuff one to complete the set! Is Cho's skin tone paler now?

    Future Castle Sets?

    With recent shows like Vikings and the Last Kingdom, as well as the latest Assassin's Creed game, I'd love a Saxons vs Vikings line. Like Pirates vs Imperials, it's sort of up to you which faction is good and which is bad, but you could also have some peaceful cooperation too. Lots of lovely new shield prints and crazy hair pieces and a lovely longship with a few Castle classics - carts, forts, battering rams and outposts with some lovely MMV/MVR-like citizen stuff.

    Long hair looks to cover up the updated torso badge (not a fan but fine if it's just a 20th Anniversary tribute) - so Cho should look fine next to other Ravenclaw as her hairpiece covers it. I don't think there is a Slytherin with similar hair, but for Gryffindor maybe Ginny's hair will do.

    The Quidditch robes and Lucius fig were always quite likely to appear elsewhere, the photographer and variants for the trio, Ginny, Fred, George, Molly and Lockhart are quite likely to stay unique to DA.

    Oh, the intimacy coordinator? Nothing to worry about in itself, they'll probably be required for any scenes with only kissing in future in most productions. It's an important step after the Me 2 movement and has the added bonus of having actors more relaxed and happy in intimate scenes, so fewer awkward sex scenes etc going forward hopefully! Good to see Amazon is doing the right thing hiring one (not to say how good the final product will bet though!) as anyone who has seen a show like Normal People or I May Destroy You can see the quality acting in intimate scenes. Sprout is intriguing, would be interested in Snape if he even just has a new face print!
