    I found somewhat of a solution for this. I had some spare technic half pins that I plugged into the holes on the branches. The flower stems hold on better in the pins. Not a perfect solution since I only had them in blue, but it’s better than the stems constantly falling off.

    He just posted his review of the Great Hall too. Jang is the best!

    I’m happy to report a successful trip to my LEGO Store. I picked up the entire line including the Hogwarts Express and the BrickHeadz. They only had 3 each of the Hermione and Ron/Dumbledore BrickHeadz but I was lucky enough to snag one. The manager randomly asked if I cared about the condition of the box for the Hogwarts Express. When I said no, he offered me 100 extra VIP points to exchange my pristine box for a slightly dented one. I jumped on at that opportunity!

    I will be going to my LEGO store, so I’ll gladly report my findings. Planning on getting there early in case there’s a line.

    I sold all my older 2001-era Harry Potter sets (except The Final Challenge because it helped bring me out of my dark age) to buy the 2010 sets and I never regretted it. But then I didn’t care for the floor-pillars-roof kind of empty designs of the original sets, so the 2010 sets were infinitely better in my opinion. I considered selling those for this new line but decided against it in the end. Those sets are still great and had some awesome minifigs like Bellatrix.

    I understand that the Elder wand should be important enough to get its own mold, but for all intents and purposes Dumbledore's wand is the Elder wand. It's been his wand since he defeated Grindelwald. There's nothing to suggest he ever carried a spare non Elder wand, at least not that I recall. I'm actually curious now if Gambon's Dumbledore had the same wand prop through all the movies he appeared in or if they changed it later when it became important to the story.

    We actually get 3 of the 7 horcruxes: Tom Riddle's Diary, Nagini, and Harry himself. As for the Deathly Hallows: we get the Elder wand with Dumbledore and Harry's invisibility cloak.

    Polybag, I suppose?

    She has the new medium legs.

    Well Cho has medium legs and I suppose she could be either 4th or 5th year.

    I just found some photos of the trio wearing sweaters in POA, so you're right. Faulty memory on my part. So in years 1-2, they have short legs. In year 3, they have medium legs. At what point do they grow into regular legs?

    Longer legs. Check out LEGO's official Instagram. They have nice photos of 16 of the figs so far.

    I think that's definitely Prison of Azkaban Ron from his disheveled tie and he's not wearing a sweater (which I don't think any of them did that movie). So since the older Harry and Hermione are wearing sweaters under their robes, they must be from Goblet of Fire. Although I do think Hermione's hair looks a little more like her hairstyle in Prisoner of Azkaban.

    Agreed. I was never a fan of Gambon's Dumbledore. But I won't deny it's a pretty great minifig.

    These are wonderful! How much does a box of collectible minifigs usually go for? At first I kept thinking “Why does Graves have a mustache?” Of course he must have a reversable head and that’s Grindelwald’s face they’re showing.
