    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    A very bad picture, but you see they do not fit very well at least https://ibb.co/eZYrBU

    "Back orders accepted, will ship in 30 days" Back order after 5 mins, is that even faster than the MF?! Edit " Available now" again..

    Available in Norway now Edit: "Pre-order this item today; it will be in by 1 Sep 2018" I am waiting for a better deal anyway so do not matter for me, but bad news it that is true for day one shoppers..

    I do not think you understand what I mean.. Yes, the express is meant to be year 3 or at least have some bits from it like most of the minifigs (even tough the trolley witch and small legs on the kids are from 1-2). The only other bit I see from 3 is the hole in the WW.. So do you really think that a couple of minifigs and a hole in a tree is everything Lego are making from probably the most popular HP movie I could be wrong time will show, but next wave most likely will have several year 3 sets (probably with the new legs on the kids as well)

    If we get a green house set and second quidditch based set they should be within your grasp Year 5 I think is unlikely they have in that wave and Knight Bus is is highly likely in year 3 I would say, other that that I think you have some good guesses

    That is a interesting thought! Maybe the first waves have most HP sets, but the later waves have more FB sets. I saw the designers where complaining that they more or less where working in the dark designing Grindelwald┬┤s Escape - 75951, because the security with new films are so high they barely get any info at all. With HP and when FB films are released they have all the source materiel they can dream off.. The other reason there are few FB sets are most likely because Lego are not sure they will sell well.. Hopefully they do so we can see the shift in a few years from HP to FB, maybe those waves will have some HP sets that where for some reason not in earlier waves like COS I agree! Should be doable, hopefully we see something like that soon If you have read or looked at a designer interview about HP it is pretty clear that first wave focused on year 1-2 (" We based these sets on movies 1 and 2 with a few bits from 3 added for flavour")! So no we have not gotten year 3 yet just a flavour from it, next wave most likely is 3 and 4.. With your logic we can say that the GH set is from every movie that has the great hall in at least one scene etc

    You guys seems to forget year 3
  8. I have a few of the older sets, but the minifigs in this series is a huge step up in detail. Now I have them in hand I am even more impressed with them At least we can agree on White Fang reviews and the return of the normal CMF I finally got my box and as usual I feel the packs and identify them before opening them. Series 18 was probably the easiest series so far, this one was really hard, but practice makes perfect

    At least in Norway the price in cheaper in some stores and there are always campaigns several times a year with up to 40% off in some shops.. Personally I think Rowling has very little to do with it. I wild guess could be that Lego expect them to sell a lot, so they release them to different times in different countries to spit up the first rush of people buying the sets. So they do not end up being sold out everywhere at the same time with no chance of restocking in the near future.. As long as people buy the sets I guess Lego are earning plenty no matter where they sell them

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The reason it got a long shelf-life was probably because it was selling so good

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Well modular buildings sell enough and they are just buildings.. Who said anything about them being grey, a set like that would obviously focus on the fantastic diverse interiors and not necessarily the outside of the buildings.. I am not saying they will make 3 more, but that they easily could. At least 5 characters from the first would be in the next series as well etc and do not forget FB, we are missing a minimum of 10 characters from the new movie + the possibility for updated characters we already got.. That is a valid point, but so far it is looking good at least

    Time will show how many sets/waves we get.. If Lego want to they can keep the line going for many years: Hogwarts parts set is easily 10 sets if they like They made 40 CMF figs from batman so 100 from HP/FB is no problem Diagon alley could be like winter village with a set of one shop per year for a long time Ministry of magic from each country (FB will most likely visit several more in the future) could be a huge D2C set series So far we have gotten 2 FB sets from 2 movies, we could get plenty more from those two and the 3 next films Etc Several members mention the LOTR as a example with its huge fan base, but how many of those are children in the Lego buying age?! Very few I would guess compared to HP.. I am sure Lego will make a second wave in 2019 (or 2020), after that it depends on the sale how many waves we get.. So better get everyone you know to buy the sets for themselves and/or their kids

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    The sheep is long overdue! Duck, goose or a updated mould for the foal maybe But to be realistic we could very well get a combine harvester in the great vehicles sub-theme without getting a farm sub-theme.. Most likely a farm theme would show up in summer as well, winter has usually the boring police sets etc

    Not confirmed, but more likely than not

    Future Pirates Speculation

    Well it is still a bit early, have not heard any rumors in the other themes I am following either, so would not give up hope yet
