    Ideas for CMFs

    The minifigures are only known because of leaks, but there is a grandmother head and hair that can be switched out with the wolf head.

    The "Weird Grandma" concept is going to be a real figure, along with a new Red Riding Hood, in the Ideas Pop-up Book set. No hat because they couldn't get a new mold, but still.
  3. I see why people think it looks right, but it's just too puffy for me to agree. I think it's definitely the best option they had without making a new piece, but if Commissioner Gordon can introduce a subtly different combed hairstyle, why couldn't they put Umbridge in a set with the budget for a subtly different granny hairstyle?
  4. Snape is really disappointing; that hat was made specifically to have a bird on it when the Scarecrow CMF introduced it, but they couldn't bring the crow back in dark tan for Snape's hat? I also think Umbridge's hair is lazy. While it's in LEGO's current design standard and library, it's too wide for her hairstyle, and even though they didn't put much expense into this set, I'd really liked to have seen a direct update of the older sculpt.

    I just picked up Trelawney, and she's lovely. The cup and saucer are also fantastic additions that I can't wait to see more of. It's such an astoundingly dramatic improvement over whatever they thought that older figure was.

    I'm not gonna be so complimentary to the custom work, because it's objectively not that great. But when you've reached that level of influence, it is certainly a great honor for the original.

    The D2C is a very nice model and the founders are excellent. I just don't have the interest in getting it.

    These figures look really nice. Sybill Trelawney is a major standout, especially since we never got anything close beforehand, but I'm also inordinately excited about the new briefcase. I'm glad the cheap "folded=hinged" pieces are being replaced. The Triwizard Cup is pretty lame, though.

    Those would have to be licensed characters; that's how LEGO works. The soccer players are real people, the Batman figures are licensed, so they're not yellow for those reasons. Robert8 is not going to make a fleshie series unless there are licensed figures involved, however, because LEGO does not use flesh tones for non-licensed characters.

    Yeah, Cho's skin is much too dark. It's not a bad choice for some Asian people, but Cho would be better off with the light nougat skin color. Were it not for the hairstyle, I would have assumed it was Padma Patil.

    Oh goodness I need all of these. Finally, a good Trelawney and Moody/Crouch! But Gambon-Dumbledore is great, too, and Dobby is much more LEGO. And then Credence and Graves/Grindelwald? Herbology Neville and Luna too? Very exciting. My inner HP nerd is exploding.

    Huh. Is Boggart-Snape the first time they've done a double face with a hat that doesn't cover it? I know some hairpieces don't always cover the second face, but with a hat it'll be even more obvious.

    Well, there's a lot of money saved. I can't say I expected anything near a complete minifig-scale Hogwarts for that price, but as long as it doesn't include any desirable minifigures to display alongside it, I'm fine with it being the scale it is.

    Whoa, I'm surprised by how good that is! The case actually folds up into a proper-looking model and then turns into a playset! The only creature that doesn't look great is the Erumpent, but the Occamy and Thunderbird look good. The use of the pin-stud as the teapot lid is very clever. Hopefully we'll get more magical creatures in the future, though it's nice that we get a screen-accurate invisible Dougal the Demiguise!
