  1. So guys, in just2good's newest Catalogue Revisit video, at about 4:08, he mentioned while revisiting the Harry Potter pages that "these were the last wave of sets from the theme...until the ones being released later this year. Did I say that out loud?" Yes, he did! So, I say it's officially unofficially confirmed! He did say "sets" and not "Dimensions packs" or anything of the like. He, said, "sets." So, I know I'm excited! What about you guys? What are your hopes for the "return" of the theme later this year? I persoanlly expect a reveal at SDCC, but we can probably expect some tidbits from our trusty members with sources. Here's a link to the video: Edit: Mods, if you would, please add an "n" to the end of "Discussio." Thanks, typo.
  2. This is a teaser for an upcoming build in a few months. Stay tuned! Check out more on flickr! Also new doctor who creation! Thanks Freemediabank for the sky picture and here for the Harry Potter logo! Harry Potter, Ukrainian Ironbelly and all related names, images, etc. are property of J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers Studios.
  3. I'm looking to trade or sell these parts: As you can see in the picture, most of the Harry Potter heads are somewhat banged up or have faded printing. The scooby doo and friends figs are in superb condition though. The price for the whole lot is $45 plus shipping which in the US would only be a few more dollars. I'm interested in castle building parts and figs especially, though not limited to that by any means. So if you have something you'd like to trade, just let me know. PM me, if you're interested in some or all of the above.
  4. And it`s done! The first `family colaboration` we did in Lego, a display like I do for my Tolkien sets, for Harry Potter. The idea srang from my GF`s mind when she was at Brick Mania Wetteren, in that she wanted to have something displayed as well (read: which I can take along), and I offered to do something with the The Burrow set, as it is a nice presentable thing. Now, while the GF added the idea (and two flower pieces she bought in the Netherlands a few weeks ago), the Smurf `donated` his The Burrow sets core (sans minifigures, and I didn`t need the catapult and the chimney thing), while I spend the money on minifigures for the set, the printed name tile (made at Mijn Blokje) and well, all the rest :-) I then started to watch the movies at last, and came with the idea of having the Ford Anglia from the Hogwart`s Express set included, as Harry and Ron fly towards the Weasley house in the Chamber of Secrets. The Harry hanging out of the door was just an idea I had, even though it happened a bit before in the film, as I thought it would look cool. The area surrounding the house was then dressed up by a small section of the stream near the house, and a tree in front as they live near a forest edge. Friends animals do lend themselves well for the Harry Potter scenes I found out, adding that certain "children`s cuteness" that was prelevalent in the first two movies, who are rather innocent compared to later instalments. I also went for the corn to make the borders of the build alternate from only grass patches, and used the same method I tried over a year ago in a GoH build, something I was rather pleased with for result. I`m rather happy with how the display turned out in the end, and right on time to take it along for FACTS already, while it`s initial `deadline` I had set for myself was Brick Mania Antwerpen in november. But building it `side-by-side` with the Rivendell display I showed last week, this went swifter then expected and now I`m all set with the displays I wanted to build for myself in 2015... so that is a goal Completed on the marker :-)
  5. Hi there fellow LEGO fans! I've been procrastinating this for months but I finally started updating my BrickLink store and I have a few items for sale here. An assortment of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and other themed minifigure heads, torso assemblies, and accessories are all up for sale. I would prefer to sell this as a lot for around $40-$50, which would price each item at a bit less than $1 while many of these parts belong to rare figures priced much higher. If you are interested in particular items, I would also not mind breaking up this lot. If interested, contact me via private message or email. (alexyermilov@yahoo.com) Additionally, stop by my BrickLink store! :)

    MOC - Magical Vehicles

    Hi, as I'm going to to build some scenes from the Harry Potter movies for the Lego Fanwelt Event next year in Cologne, Germany, I began with planning these two magical vehicles: The Weasley's Flying Ford Anglia and the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. So here's a rendering of the LDD models: Magical vehicles from Harry Potter by Vaionaut I hope you like them ;) Best Vaionaut
  7. The Harry Potter line was one of my favorites and I (like many) was crushed when it was discontinued. I have been working on decals of characters that were not released, based on their appearances in the Traveller's Tales games. I haven't actually used any of the decals yet, so I'm not sure how they would look on a physical figure (I'm waiting for the technology to catch up so that I can affordably make LEGO-quality figures). I'm not sure how many other Potterheads are out there, but I thought I would share a few that I have worked on. Enjoy!

    The Office of Hercule Poirot [MOC]

    Hello there, Welcome to the office of the famous french belgian detective : Monsieur Hercule Poirot What you see before you is the office of Poirot, where he uses his "little grey cells" to think about most complicated murders. The design is loosely based on the one from the TV series from the 90's (and later on, but the office appears in the first seasons only) Admire below, the man in perso! Along with his loyal associate, Captain Hastings ] And his secretary Miss Lemon Poirot is ready for his new adventure! For more picture, be sure to check our flickr Please let us know what you think, any Poirot MOC's you'd like to see being made? Any comments about this one! Aurevoir Messieurs dames
  13. EDIT: Now also with HUFFLEPUFF TORSOS! Hello Eurobricks! Geertos13 here, I don't post a lot in the customization usually, but I thought this was worth it. While working on my new Harry Potter Brickfilm, (which hum hum.. can be checked out ...) I wanted to get everything look quite pro, and I've been always been sort of a purist, so for my little Hogwarts students, I didn't want to go for decals, so I looked around the net, and except for Smallgreenpeatoys' ravenclaw and Hufflepuff torsos that don't look that good, I went looking but couldn't find anything good! And then I found poppunkmunkys store, now before you all get mad, cause I saw that he got quite some hate on here, I thought his quality was really good. He also offers a printing service for a 5$ per torso if you order five torsos of the same printing, perfect for custom armies, Ooorrr Hogwarts students for that matter! So I present to you, the first ever, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff printed torsos! I only ordered some Ravenclaw ones first, as I didn't know what to expect, but the printing came out great, colorfull and crisp, so I soon ordered Hufflepuff torsos as well and below is the result! Behold, the front and back together below : Here is a comparison picture with the other two official houses, as I said, Hufflepuff to come soon. Finally, here is a picture that actually features a figure I bought from the store itself, based on the Hufflepuff quidditch team, also highly detailled, crisp and accurate: Special thanks goes out to lego3x11l who was willing to design new customs for me. Tin7creations' decals vanished from the internet quite a while back, and he made his own, new ones, if you want you can check em out here What do you think of those custom Ravenclaw torsos? Absolute win or epic purist fail? Want one yourself? Go ahead on order one here.
  14. Hey! I recently bought this Gilderoy Lockhart minifig to add to my HP collection, but he's really standing out with his yellow head and I don't like it. (Don't get me wrong, I love yellow heads too, just not in combination with flesh heads) Do you guys happen to know if there's a similar sleazy/jolly flesh head out there that I can replace this one with? Here's the original dude in case you need a reference: (Isn't he great)

  16. This build was based on LEGO set 4756 (called Shrieking Shack ) from the 2004 Harry Potter / Prisoner of Azkaban movie line. My revamped version of the set features a hinge system to allow access to the interior while preserving the sense that it is a complete building. The front of the house. Those 1x6 tan tiles in this build are all missing a specific rare wooden board print. (see it here: http://www.bricklink...m.asp?P=6636px1 ) The rear view features the secret exit to the tunnel from Hogwarts' Womping Willow and more boarded up windows. The Inside features a bed-frame, (from another Haunted House, set 10228) staircase with broken railing, couch, and phonograph courtesy of 10228. Here is the LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1412793485m.lxf Comments, questions & complaints are welcome!
  17. Here is a revamped and revised version of Harry Potter set 4728, Escape from Privet Drive. It includes a updated 1959 Ford Anglia 105E (in medium blue of course!) and an enlarged house, with a lamp by the front door and a printed number four tile below that. (The tile print isn't in LDD yet) This is what the house looks like when it is closed. It doesn't look that great, but it certainly looks better than it it did in the original 2002 set! (Link to the set: http://brickset.com/...om-Privet-Drive ) The house features a upstairs bedroom with bed, chest-of-drawers, and a lamp. The ground floor features a table with two chairs, couch and a fireplace. This car is based on the Ford Anglia 105E, which was made from 1959 to 1968. It had a 997 cc overhead-valve straight-4 with an oversquare cylinder bore for an engine and a four-speed (manual) gearbox with synchromesh on the top three forward ratios. (this was replaced by an all-synchromesh box in September 1962.) ...And no, the flying gear is / was NOT a standard feature! The estate car version was tested by British "Motor" Magazine in 1959 and reached a top speed of 73.8 MPH (118.8 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 26.9 seconds. (The version I built is the 2 door saloon) The inspiration for this model (and basis for most of it's design) was the 2002 Harry Potter set 4728, Escape from Privet Drive. The info above was read off of Wikipedia and retyped / rearranged. This particular model seen here is the 1959 version, complete with backward slanting rear window which supposedly kept it clear of rain... at least, that's what the advertisements said! The interior seating is not prototypical of the real car and does not really seat figures. HOWEVER, the model is modifiable to include doors which will allow two figures to sit inside. Also, the trunk opens to reveal a large luggage compartment. The car seen here is a heavily modified mash-up of sets 4728 and 71006, (Simpsons House, specifically the car) I used the same basic premise as the original Harry Potter set, but with the modern techniques and parts of the Simpsons pink car. I have the opening trunk and interior of the original set but I removed the opening doors on the premise of "it looks better and is much stronger". Now, I know this house isn't very accurate to the Movie / real location... It is more of a mash up of what the set was, and what could have been if it had been updated. The LDD file is right here, in case anyone wants it: http://www.mocpages....1409775098m.lxf
  18. Hogwarts Boathouse Death of Severus Snape This is the Hogwarts boathouse. It is the place to store magical boats which are used to bring first-year students to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by the Black Lake. Also Professor Severus Snape died there in the film adaptation of Deathly Hallows (in the book he died in the Shrieking Shack). The boathouse from Deathly Hallows: Part II: The live-action full-scale set which only lacks the roof: I was always impressed with scale of Harry Potter studio sets. And this is the boathouse from the Hogwarts model which was used in first six Harry Potter films (along with Production Designer Stuart Carig): The boathouse was redesigned in Deathly Hallows: Part II, especially for Snape's death scene. Side view (with Harry Potter spying on Voldemort): Rear view: Hagrid transfers first-year students to Hogwarts Castle: The empty boathouse: The furniture (I don't know why wizards need oars but they were in the film): The main characters: Harry Potter, Professor Severus Snape, Lord Voldemort and Nagini, his pet snake and horcrux: The interior with Snape and Voldemort: The Death Eater and his Dark Lord are discussing magical powers of the Elder Wand: Harry Potter is hiding behind the window and watching for Snape and Voldemort: ...And suddenly the windows opened... "AVADA KEDAVRA!" No, not like that! This is far much better: Voldemort ordered Nagini to kill Snape, and she bit his throat: No mercy, no compassion. The Dark Lord doesn't care of his pawns. Voldemort is ready to leave the boathouse: Harry collects Snape's memories into a vial and looks into his eyes. The grim and snarky professor sees that the eyes of his most hated student remind him of his unfortunate love. Of Lily Potter. And then, he dies. Or, at least, it seemed like that:
  19. Back when LEGO still made really weird decisions about things on the regular came this supremely odd, almost confusingly cool set. It's… Set Title: Graveyard Duel Set #: 4766 Theme: Harry Potter Subtheme: Goblet of Fire Pieces: 548 Minifigures: 8 (including skeletons) Year of Release: 2005 Price at Release: USD 30, GBP 30 Buy it? Inventory? Bricklink Just browse the pictures? Flickr set INTRODUCTION Back in the rocky mid-'00s, LEGO did some dumb things. Maybe they will already over their very lowest point by the time this set rolled around in 2005, but they clearly still didn't have it all together. Just as things were getting cooler and cooler in Harry Potter, LEGO started stepping it up with even more Harry Potter sets than ever, covering everything you could ever want in the films. Right? WRONG. Four measly sets for Goblet of Fire, just another single Hogwarts for Order of the Phoenix, and big fat ZERO for Half-Blood Prince. WHY LEGO WHY WHY WHY. At least they righted some of their wrongs with the amazing 2010 sets. (Check out reviews of most of those on my profile.) But back to this set. I've already reviewed the other Goblet of Fire set I have, the underwater one, which has some awesome minifigs, cool parts, and is still a really weird set. This one is weirder. Way weirder. Come with me and find out why. PACKAGING I don't have the box anymore, but I can tell you that it was weird. Harry and Peter Pettigrew both had the wrong heads on the box. Yes. On the box. Packaging does not reflect contents. Weird. The other thing that you would've noticed if you were in the part of the world where piece count is on the box: 548 pieces. MSRP 30 bucks. What? How? Why? 548 pieces for 30 bucks? Is that wrong? In this case, packaging does reflect contents. It's too good to be true. INSTRUCTIONS Here's that front of box picture, where you will see that Harry still has his fleshie years 1-3 face, and Peter Pettigrew aka Wormtail has his Prison of Azkaban face. It also clearly shows Wormtail with one grey hand and one flesh hand, though in my copy of the set he had two grey hands (which I quickly remedied). The set also just looks weird - it's like somebody had a leftover Halloween set, though 'Hey there's a graveyard in the new Harry Potter movie!' and just threw in some HP figs to make it an HP set. Harry still has the wrong face on the minifigs page, though Wormtail is now correct. LEGO also apparently had the worst possible computer technology at this point in time. Luckily color differentiation was just fine, as you can see the vast difference between black and dark grey. The instructions also have a pleasing, Harry Potter-y parchment background. I don't want to bore you with five thousand pictures of instructions, but check out this alternate model. It's so cool OMG WOW! As an aside, I recall that Barnes & Noble's website showed this image (on a white background) as the main set image. Wormtail once again has the wrong face in this image that is clearly of physical LEGO. The back actually has the right head on Harry! A LEGO catalog that came at that time also featured the right head, so I guess by the time LEGO did promotional materials, they had the actual finished product. Also don't you remember that scene where the Hungarian Horntail attacks the Durmstrang Ship? If Peter Jackson had directed the movie, that scene probably would have existed. MINIFIGURES Let's move on to the actually interesting stuff. Minifigures! The minifig selection in this set honestly could be better. There's not that many of them, and they're not that great. A couple more Death Eaters would have been nice, and of course - where's Cedric? Remember, that random character nobody really cared about? Honestly, just more Death Eaters would've been fine with me. Here's what we DO get, though. Harry looks great, with a fitting torso, and my favorite smiling Harry face of all. Why he's simply smiling without an alternate face - now that's a good question. LEGO did alternate faces for Ron, Hermione, Lucius (in this set), and underwater Harry in this wave, so they could've stepped up here. It's just silly. Voldemort is awful. It's basically the same print that was on the Quirrel figure, but now glowing in the dark. Massive facepalm. Lucius Malfoy has a boss Death Eater mask that can luckily be used to made generic Death Eaters, so that's great. And Wormtail. The hair is all wrong and the torso is a bit simple, but I guess the face works. Something feels a little off with it, though. Valiant effort, but not mah fave. Harry has a fitting back print, while Lucius Malfoy has a torso that's nearly identical to his original version, just not with shininess. His face is similar to the original, but it's printed with just one color (black) so he has flesh-colored pupils that just look bad. Thankfully, the 2010 version of Mr. Malfoy's head was decent, so if you have this head you can just use the other side for a generic Death Eater and forget it's Malfoy. In sum, Harry emerges as the only actually-good figure of these four (minus his lack of serious face), with Lucius coming out as ok due to his mask, Wormtail being tolerable, and Voldemort being crap. LEGO thankfully made an A+ 100% amazing Voldemort in the 2010 line, but back in 2005 you would've been better off… I don't know, not even having Voldemort? Not really, but this sucked. Remember all of the skeletons in the graveyard scene in the movie? No? Too bad, you get them anyway! LEGO even went out of it's way to make an exclusive all-black skeleton for all of your medieval burned-at-the-stake MOCing needs. They also decided to throw in sand green skelly parts already in existence from the Dementors, but didn't make any more sand green parts than they'd already done, so you're left with a 1/3 rotting-infest and 2/3 burned skelly. Fantastic. I personally always hated this 'new' skelly face since it's just more freaky than it needs to be. It still gives me shivers. (Note the exclusive black Hippogryph wings, though - awesome!) ACCESSORIES I already showed the wands with the wands and knife with the minifigs, so there are those. In addition, you get a black shovel, full light bley trash can with lid, and broom. The black shovel has been in a fair number of sets, but it's still comparatively rare so cool to get. The trash bin in light bley has only been in five sets, so it's even more rare. This photo proves that one can, with care, pose skellies. But it's very annoying. ANIMALS It wouldn't be a Harry Potter set without copious and unnecessary amounts of animals. Both the green snake and dark bley frog appeared in those colors here for the first time. It also appears Norbert cloned herself and and took a bath in tar. Also new and still exclusive to this day in black. The designer using his or her parts budget well - amiright? (Based on the fact that there are 548 parts in this set anyway, I'll assume the designing budget was set at 'whatever.') SET The set, such as it is, is just a combination of a bunch of different little things. I wish I could take you through it in build order, but I don't have the instructions in front of me anymore and I don't completely recall it. It doesn't matter that much anyway. Let's get into it! Cauldron Here's something that actually makes sense given the scene, which did in fact feature a cauldron. Now that I'm looking at the instructions front picture, it seems the cauldron isn't even there, but it is indeed in the set. You're instructed to put a bunch of studs and a knife inside. Red for blood of an enemy, knife for flesh of a servant, white for baby Voldemort ghost, and yellow for pee of a goat perhaps? IDK. Gate Here's example number 1 of LEGO being totally excessive with this big gate section that wasn't even in the film. Recolored Norbert as already mentioned, tons of fence pieces - just tons of pieces. Let me be clear - I'm not complaining about this stuff, it's just totally weird. The effect looks very nice. If you wish, you can even close the whole gate thing. Magic! This would actually work for a privately enclosed grave in a larger graveyard. Cart Thingy Since Harry Potter is set before the time of cars and more specifically hearses, this wooden-looking olden-day coffin cart is included. I'm not sure how the designer even came up with this, but once again, it's designed very nicely. It makes use of parts that were still relatively new and rare at the time, like the 1x2 brown plate with bar at the back and the cheese slopes. The reddish brown plate with bar is still really rare, actually, appearing in just three sets. Cheese slopes of course are now so common that LEGO would probably ship you a box of five thousand free of charge. The coffin easily separates and looks quite good on its own, though it's kind of weird because it doesn't reflect the size of minifigures. Still looks great though. Very very creepily, the instructions instruct you to put some black skelly parts in there. So yeah. Somebody was burned at the stake and then chopped up. That's what LEGO is telling the children receiving this set. It's also NOT OK. I know the movie was kind of scary already, but you didn't have to go and make it worse in a freaking toy. Creepy cut-off burnt limbs aside, your child can have plenty of fun with this cart acting out what happened in the graveyard after Harry grabbed the portkey and returned to Hogwarts. Little Graves Bouncing back into 'kind of makes sense' territory, we get two little graves. Like (almost) all of the builds in this set, they're designed quite well. Plus, they work for the scene since there actually were graves around in the movie! They were even large enough for Harry to hide behind. The funky design on the Fabuland piece on the left one is a sticker, fyi. That piece only appeared in light bley in this set, so cool. But wait, there's a play feature! Both graves open up to reveal ground above the ground, and a pair of very neat buried-skelly prints. Yes, prints! Together the printed buried-skelly looks quite cool. Just another example of the awesome parts in this set. Also note the big skeleton piece found elsewhere in white in those horrid 4+ Pirates sets. Abominable line, but some cool parts. Bigger Grave Still rooted in the 'makes enough sense' category is this larger grave or tomb-like thing. The frog is used nicely as a decorative touch on top. The design on the panel is once again a sticker, but a nice one. Excellent design and parts all around. Due to the SNOT for the panel for the front, the back looks a little yucky, but not horrid. You wouldn't really display this from the back anyway. You might have noticed that awkward black stick running through the grave. Play feature alert guys!!! Twist the stick in your fingers, and… Skelly surprise! Hey, this thought just dawned on me, but maybe it's an inferi! Reference to later Harry Potter lore for the hardcore fans, right? So clever on LEGO's part! Actually it makes no sense and plays into my theory that this set was originally a Halloween set that got scrapped. But PLAY FEATUREZZ!!1!11 Tom Riddle's Grave This big grave is obviously supposed to resemble the one in the film, but didn't quite work out. We could cut LEGO some slack and say that the designer only saw concept art and kind of mucked it up. The thing has some of the features of the movie one, like a robed skeleton with wings, though it's placed wrong. Another aside - but who the hell makes a grave with a big grim reaper statue anyway? That makes absolutely no sense in the movie. Though it sadly doesn't get the movie grave right, this thing does look neat and has great parts. So many 1x4 tan tiles, those big dark bley tile pieces, rounded parts in black, dark bley slopes, black chains - good stuff. It all comes together quite well. Again note that the designs on tiles you see here are stickers. The back has the same affliction as the previous grave shown due to the SNOT piece spacing. But see that handle? We've got another play feature on our hands! You can open up the grave to reveal… snakes?? Shouldn't Tom Riddle actually be in there, given that they get a bone from him? Or at least one of the skeletons? Ok whatever, I give up. Logic was thrown out the window long ago. Tree There actually were trees in the background in this scene, so this could make sense. But take a look at the extravagant nature of this tree. For one - it's huge. Literally so many pieces here. Second - so many animals. Did we need bats on every single branch? No, but we got them. The reddish brown 1x4 plate with arm down only appeared in this and the rereleased King Leo's Castle of 2006, by the way. More cool parts. Then we're back in maximum creepy zone with the guy who was NAILED TO THE TREE AND LEFT TO ROT. More grotesque stuff for no reason. Little House (on the prairie) Thing We shall conclude this look at the disparate parts with perhaps the most perplexing thing of all - this little building. Once again, the overall look of it is bang-on fantastic. Great color blocking, great shape. Not actually a perfect design, as we'll see, but just as a thing it looks great. So many good parts too - I'll let you look at the picture to spot them for yourself. Not much to see from the back, but it's just a nice little build all around. The key word is 'little,' though. A minifigure can just barely stand in there, and the windows aren't at the right level. So this is actually like a mini build. Forced perspective in a LEGO set? Maybe? A revolutionary idea never to be found in a set again because children couldn't handle it? We'll never know. There's more to it, though. First, the roof comes off (more delicious tiles allowing for easy removal). I wish that was it, but it's not. The floor comes out too (though you kind of have to remove the whole stair build to get the floor out). The floor is great because of tiles, but yep - more creepy skeletons missing limbs. And you're supposed to put some of their missing limbs in the trash can. I can't make this stuff up; it's in the instructions. Gross. WHOLE SET and CONCLUSION Quite a lot, altogether. It makes a very nice, spooky graveyard scene, though some bits are a bit too spooky and wrong like the random skeleton bits. This set is a real headscratcher. In a way, it's great - so many parts, including in rare and exclusive colors, and really great designs all around. From a design perspective, this set could be released now and fit right in with today's builds. It couldn't be released today, though, at least as it was. Or, if you got this exact set, it would cost USD 60 minimum. It's completely insane that this was actually supposed to cost USD 30. As an HP set, it's really not great. There was a graveyard in the movie, and a duel, so, yes, you can sort of re-enact that stuff with this set. It doesn't come with that many minifigures, though, and the ones you do get are not all stellar. Particularly Voldemort - or Crappyglowinthedarkmort. Harry really screams for a more concerned exp<b></b>ression. I get that the climax of the movie should be a set, but LEGO still made very odd decisions with this one. It looks like this set goes for a ton of money on Bricklink today, and honestly, it's not one anyone would need to go back and pick up. LEGO really did Harry Potter right in 2010/2011, and this set can't even have the nostalgia factor of the ones from 2001 because it's so bizarre. It's well designed, it's fun, and it's packed with goodies in the parts department, so if you lucked into it at the time, you made a great decision. At this point, I wouldn't say it's a must have for anybody.
  20. I'm very curious to see what other people's opinions are of this. I'll kick it off with my best and worst. I think the worst Hogwarts has got to be 4757 (the second variation of the castle). I really did feel it was lacking detail and was just not big enough. My personal favourite though has got to be the most recent Hogwarts. The minifigures are fantastic, the exterior and interior detail is amazing and it's just full of features from most of the movies. Now you've heard form me, what are your thoughts guys?

    Eventual return of "Harry Potter"?

    I think LEGO HP might someday make a (second) revival. Apparently J. K. Rowling is writing the screenplay for a new series of Potter spin-off movies, the first of which will begin production at an undisclosed (or undetermined) time. Although this will not quite be HP as we know it, I'm guessing the "universe" will feel very similar. It's still made by Warner Bros., so does anyone think we'll see LEGO HP come back in the near (or far) future? http://www.bbc.co.uk...t-arts-24067557 I would personally love to see Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes to complement my Diagon Alley, but I think releasing a set like that alongside: "Fantastic Beasts" might be a step backward for WB. What do you think this new series could mean for LEGO HP?
  22. Hey Eurobricks! I just uploaded a little Harry Potter short to YouTube that I thought would be nice to share here :) Please enjoy the Shrieking Shack climax In which Harry Ron and Hermione start back to the castle, Crookshanks chases Scabbers, and a big black dog drags Ron into a tunnel under the Whomping Willow. Crookshanks stops the tree from attacking Harry and Hermione, and they follow the cat down the tunnel to emerge in the Shrieking Shack outside Hogsmeade. They find Ron a captive of Black, who disarms them. Harry attacks Black, and with Ron and Hermione overpowers him, but Crookshanks stands between Harry and Black when Harry threatens to kill him. Lupin arrives and admits that he's Black's friend and a werewolf. It is revealed that Scabbers is an Animagus named Peter Pettigrew. Lupin tells the story of his becoming a werewolf and of his school days with James Potter, Sirius Black, and Severus Snape, the last of whom now appears. Snape threatens Lupin and Black with the Dementors, Harry Ron and Hermione disarm Snape, Lupin and Black tell the truth about Harry's parents' deaths, Scabbers reverts back to Peter Pettigrew, the truth comes out about all the players in the drama, revealing that Pettigrew was responsible for the Potters' deaths, and Harry keeps Lupin and Black from killing Pettigrew. --CAST-- Geertos13 as Harry Potter DT98Films as Ronald Weasley Potterminifigfilms as Hermione Granger Druox as Sirius Black Kyle Smiley as Remus Lupin Mustardmanzz as Severus Snape Sean Strawson as Peter Pettigrew

    Hogwarts Vignettes

    I had some time on my hands, a week ago before I came home from uni. Using the small amounts of bricks I had there, I made a few Hogwarts Vignettes to pass the time and to try some different building styles. Due to the small number of bricks, sometimes I had to substitute colours, but I'm still happy with most of them. I'll put them up in the order I made them. Seamus and Neville on the lakefront. Seamus is skimming stones and Neville is practicing Wingardium Leviosa. Trevor the Toad is contemplating life. Lupin's Office. Lupin is relaxing in his office with his favourite panacea - chocolate. His Wolfsbane potion is ready by the window, the tank behind his desk is ready for its next occupant, and he is casually perusing the confiscated Marauder's Map. Slytherin Common Room. Crabbe is finishing his pumpkin juice as Pansy Parkinson looks at the timetable to see which class she has next. The Humpback Witch Statue. Harry slides down the cute and sets of through the underground passage to meet his friends in Hogsmeade. Snape surveys the statue with interest. The Chamber of Secrets. Ron moves to clear the rubble that Lockhart blasted from the ceiling when his spell backfired. Lockhart is humming tunelessly. The Dungeon Corridor. Ginny is taken by suprise when the Bloody Barron drifts though the wall in front of her, through the stalagmite and stalactite formation. The Prank. Fred (or is that George?) floods the bathroom to make Quirrell late for class.
