  1. For ages known as Zebra (a code name before release, similar to banana for Hidden Side), TLG officially announced today (July 1st) the new LEGO Art theme, starting with four sets: 31197 Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe 31198 The Beatles 31199 Marvel Studios Iron Man 31200 Star Wars Sith Each set makes one of 3-4 mosaics, with the Iron Man and Sith sets being combinable to form a mega picture from 3 sets. With one set you can make 1 Beatle, 1 Marilyn Monroe, etc. The prices for each set are US$120/€120/£115. These will be available from August 1st everywhere excluding US and Canada for The Beatles, Marilyn Monroe and the Sith. Iron Man is available universally on August 1st. For those thinking this has been mentioned before, it has, but not in its own deserved thread, and basically only names of sets + theme. There was never the deserved own thread, and no pictures, which is why I’m creating it now! I don’t know about everyone else but I’m hyped for these - though disappointed at the price... Discuss here.
  2. Welcome to Harry potter custom builds and moc's. I'm loving the new Harry Potter range of sets but there is always room for improvement. Interested to see how people have altered, added to the existing sets or just gone crazy and built something themselves. Looking forward to seeing your magical creations.
  3. I am proud to finally present my moc System scale Hogwarts castle! This is a project I’ve wanted to undertake since the first wave of sets back in 2018. But with the release of the astronomy tower this summer there was finally enough pieces to get to work. The pieces from the set comprise almost entirely from 2x every Hogwarts expansion set since 2018, along with one broken down D2C Hogwarts. I estimate roughly 10,000 pieces in the thing. The set is comprised of 5 sections: the great hall/staircase tower, the West wing, the clocktower, the astronomy tower and the owlery. The first three of those combining into one connected piece. The great hall and grand staircase tower section comprises of a relatively unchanged great hall, the main differences being the added courtyard, along with connected viaduct, completed roof, and some removed rocks. The interior is pretty much identical to the original set. The staircase tower takes inspiration from the original set, however I’ve added extra height and wider section near the roof for accuracy. And the roof is directly lifted from the D2C tower. Connected to this are an entirely new courtyard entrance section, and Griffindor tower, which is a ‘shrunken’ version of that from the Whomping willow set, it looks similar, but it’s structure is almost entirely different to that of the original build. There is also an added extra tower and the higher viaduct is attached via a walkway. The interior of this section of a bit sparse until I acquire more parts, but for now has elements from different sets thrown in there, such as snapes office, the Mirror of Erised, the magical decrees and the Griffindor common room. This section connects to the west wing via two studs on the viaduct, so they can be easily removed. The west wing entrance building has been rebuilt with extra height and depth added, along with a new roof. Along from the entrance building are the greenhouses, which are unchanged, but have been attached to a facade of the west wing building, making it one solid wall piece. This leads to the bell towers, fully custom with interior in the style of the other sets. (I imagine next years flagship set will be a rendition of these) The interior of this section is a bit sparse right now, but currently contains the positions classroom and Slughorns party. I intend to put in a library there in the future. The bell towers contain the DADA classroom (taken from the clocktower set, along with Snapes cupboard. The Astromy tower is a floating piece. I couldn’t really find a good way to connect it without blocking the interior to the west wing. There has been a lot of extra height added, and the connecting wall removed from the bottom, along with some colour changes on the roof. But apart from this there is little to differentiate it from the original set. The clocktower is also a floating piece. It was originally going to connect to the high viaduct, but instead the viaduct rests on tiles on the rocky landscape base. I changed a lot of colours in this section from the original set, along with combining the sections, getting rid of the technic connectors. I also attached the clocktower courtyard, which doesn’t yet have the fountain, but I do plan to put it there. The interior of the tower here remains the same as the original set, however I have added extra floor space to Dumbledore office, something I’ve also done in the clocktower entrance hall. Also in the clocktower I have added the pendulum. The hospital wing has been moved to the middle floor, with a removable rear wall so as to not show the interior when the castle is viewed from the front. The roof has also been moved and rebuilt to complete it on both sides. Finally there is the Owlery. This is again a fully custom piece, sitting higher on rock than the other buildings. The interior here features a lot of bird droppings, and owl holes. I made sure to include the letter writing stand and owl stand from the whomping willow set, as that was a miniature representation of the owlery in a way. Outside the building I have added the staircase that leads to the rest of the castle, allowing Harry and cho to bump into eachother. And that’s the whole castle! On the face of it the whole thing looks very similar to the original sets, but I reality almost every building has had fundamental build changes, the least of which on the astronomy tower and great hall, with the most being on the west wing and grand staircase tower/griffindor tower. I hope you all like it!
  4. Hogwarts-microscale-perspective by Hugo, sur Flickr _________________________ New Moc based on the Harry Potter Universe ----------------------------------------- Harry, Ron and Hermione come back to Hogwarts for a new year. They took the Hogwarts Carriage at Hogsmeade. It is pulled by Thestrals, skeletal winged horses that only people who have seen death can see. ------------------------------------------ I tried something new in this new creation: the perspective (and microscale): the carriage is getting smaller and smaller on the scene. To the left, the trees are following the perspective and are getting smaller and smaller . To the right, the trees are on the first plan, so they can't be on the scale of perspective. At the center, i built a microscale Hogwarts. ------------------------------------------ The perspective give me the possibilty to build a landscape without using billion of bricks. It was the first time that I had used perspective and microscale. It's up to you to tell me if it's successful. I still have to improve myself on it to produce new creations ------------------------------------------ See you soon for a next creation uruk/hugo
  5. This was my entry for the latest LEGO Ideas Harry Potter competition, which won runner up. In this entry, I have recreated a diorama of Hogwarts and the grounds, and filled it with many of Harry's memories. This model was a lot of fun to make, especially because it is built in 3 different scales. One of the big challenges building the model was the angle the castle is place at; but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! You can probably see that the features of the Hogwarts grounds are not place correctly - but I have used a bit of artistic license to make a great diorama, with all Harry's memories. Some cool features of the model to look out for: Helmets for roof tops A wing for smoke A frog for the dragons head Thanks for reading! What do you think of the moc?
  6. Since the 2018 Hogwarts Express (set 75955) is lacking in realism, (with the engine and tender in particular!) I decided to revise my custom version with ideas from the set, including printed 1x4 curve tiles with Hogwarts Castle printed on them. The locomotive is a heavily modified version of LDDModelmaker's Black 5 model with some parts from set 79111, Constitution Train Chase. The tender features a three wheeled bogie design modified from the one in Anthony Sava's ALCO MRS-1. The middle axle moves side to side, as to allow going through switches and curves without issue. The inside of the cab features two gauges and the firebox. In this false-color image, the red parts slide, the blue ones stay put to allow for the loco to go around curves and switches. (BTW: There are parts underneath that keep the sliding bogie from falling out.) The roof and side wall of each coach come off independently from each other, to reveal four seats for students and / or the occasional teacher. The Hogwarts Express is usually made up of four corridor BR MK I passenger coaches, although sometimes a special fifth coach is attached with an open floor plan. (however, in this Lego design, they are all open floor plan!) Also, the end car is not accurate to the films, but is what I prefer to the alternative: a gangway leading nowhere with no red light on the end. In-universe / Film History for the Hogwarts Express: Leaving from Kings Cross' Platform 9 & 3/4 to Hogsmeade Station at exactly 9 AM, the Hogwarts Express carries students (and sometimes faculty) to and from Hogwarts' School of Witchcraft & Wizardry in the Harry Potter series of books and movies. It has been seen in every Harry Potter film, from it's first appearance in the beginning of Philosophers Stone to it's (so far) last at the end of Deathly Hallows. (part two) The Hogwarts Express is usually only in the film for a short while, and it is generally a pleasant journey from Kings Cross to Hogsmeade, although Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and a certain Flying Ford Anglia might beg to differ! This 100% fictional version of Hogsmeade station (as in, not really based on any of the Harry Potter films) was inspired by several sets, mainly set 21324 (123 Sesame Street) and bits of my older Hogsmeade station MOCs from years past. The model is modular, and features a detachable track-side platform, ground floor, second floor, and roof. The platform is five tracks long, and starts three studs away from the rail head, making it a breeze for larger engines with wider pistons to pass through unrestricted. The street side features the same basic look as the other side, but in this case their is a staircase.... which could cause a problem for luggage trolleys as their is no ramp! As also used on the rail side, this Hogsmeade 1 x 4 tile should be placed on the four exposed studs on the second floor. The upper floor features the station master's office with an little break room for an off-duty engine crewman to sleep in. Also up here is a fireplace and two desks, one of which has an oil lamp on it. The lower floor features a bench for passengers out of the Scottish fog and rain. Also, the two ticket booth's share a single cash register, so the two ticket agents best be extra sure how much money goes where and who did what! Every floor & platform is grouped separately in LDD, as shown here. As usual, comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome! EDIT 10/27/2020: Hogsmeade station LDD model replaced, screenshots and words updated accordingly. Real life pictures coming eventually. (Hopefully soon!)

    [MOC] Lightning has struck!

    "River, DA calling. We have a new weather report, lightning has struck. I repeat, lightning has struck!" - Nigel Wolpert Lightning has struck! by 0937 Superfan, on Flickr More details on the LEGO Ideas Topic or my Instagram . The last return to Hogwarts in Harry Potter - The Deathly Hallows - part II is without doubt the best of the all returns to the school and my favorite one. Despite this scene has the coolest “war code” message ever, warning every student that Harry has came back to the school of wizardry, it also happens in one of the most important places of all the saga - ” If you have to ask, you’ll never know. If you know, you need only to ask.” The Room of Requirement was every time the place where Harry had the opportunity to change his game against the dark magic of “we know who”. The place where the Dumbledore’s Army was born and where most of the wizard friends of Harry train them selfs to be better with magic. The place where all of his friends waited for him - The Chosen One…to regroup for the last fight! This project is my unique entry to the contest “Head back to Hogwarts™” on LEGO® Ideas page. “I repeat, lightning has struck!”… over, and go check it out!
  8. Welcome to Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry! The whole castle up to fall 2019, including set numbers: 75954 (Great Hall) 75953 (Hogwarts Whomping Willow) 75948 (Hogwarts Clock Tower) and a majorly customized version of set 4867 (Battle for Hogwarts) This model was originally inspired by 2011's Battle for Hogwarts set, to which I added a basement layer to bring it up to 2018 set height. I also redid the roof peaks from sand green to dark bluish gray, and added more inside details. On the left is the Slytherin common room, and above that is the astronomy tower. The dungeon is empty, as it is no longer used, much to Argus Flich's dismay. On the right side on the bottom level is the micro-scale Chamber of Secrets with it's large face in the rear and stone snakes statues. Up a level is the entrance to the chamber, the sink in the girl's lavatory that Moaning Myrtle haunts. Up one more level is a generic classroom. Bridging the two towers (literally) is the stone viaduct is one of the three or so entrance's into the school.... unless you count the seven secret passages! The Great hall, with the dock used by first years to get into the castle proper from across the lake and the train station. Four tables, four houses to be sorted into. Hufflepuff in the top left, Slytherin on the top right, Ravenclaw bottom left, and Gryffindor bottom right. The teacher's sit at the head of the room. Looks like one of the Slytherin kids ordered lobster! Through this courtyard archway Harry Potter and Ron Weasley saw the flying ford Anglia disappear into the Forbidden Forest after it had hit the Whomping Willow. It was not the last time they would see the car however.... The potions classroom (bottom level) and Gryffindor common room (middle level) with the owlery on top. The clock tower set has had it's Yule ball parts removed. I didn't like them, and they dated the set to later point in time than I wanted. Upstairs is the hospital wing, while the middle floor features the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom and the Headmaster's office, while the ground floor features the prefect's bathroom and another exit onto the school grounds. Heavily inspired by Eurobricks user @f2iso100 model of Hogwarts' bell towers (as seen halfway down on page six of this topic here.), I have devised my own model, with some revisions to make it's features more visible amongst all the tan. I made the stone shutters for the actual bell area wooden, and reduced the height of the towers by a good three bricks, as it currently looms over the official sets by a good floor-and-a-half. (10 bricks) The bottom floor features the house points tally counter across from the Tri-Wizard Cup. Looks like Gryffindor and Slytherin are tied for the house cup! The second floor features the Room of Requirement in it's room of hidden things configuration, with the chalkboard from the Dumbledore's Army room, the possibly still broken Vanishing Cabinet, and a few sealed crates. Above that, on the third floor is the Divination classroom. This includes a crystal ball and pink teapot with 2 teacups. Continuing climbing up to floor four, we have the two belfries with the dual "iron" bells that swing side to side. No, they don't actually make any noise. From left to right in the upper row: Headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Prof. McGonagall, Prof. Lockhart, Prof. Snape, Prof Flitwick, Rubeus Hagrid, Argus Filch, and a custom random Professor. The students are mostly all as they are in the sets, with the addition of one custom Dean Thomas. More could be added in the future, depending on what Lego releases for the required castle expansion. Until then, this is it, and I hope you enjoyed it. Comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!
  9. “The sweetshop’s rather good, and Zonko’s Joke Shop's frankly dangerous.” This MOC is of Zonko’s joke shop from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! The joke shop is located in the non-Muggle village of Hogsmeade, and, to Filch’s dismay, keeps Hogwarts students stocked with the most mischievous tricks Fred and George can get their hands on! Zonko's with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The model is based off the recreation of Zonko’s joke shop in Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, with inspiration drawn from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book and film. Snow covers the roof of the build to capture the small village’s wintry appearance and stickers above the large red windows recreate the playful shop signage. Zonko's 5 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Inside the joke shop, the recognisable red and black flooring has been recreated using various shapes of tiles. The red shelves and window displays are adorned with fireworks, Fanged Frizbees, and stacks of joke boxes. Zonko's 2 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The shop continues on the upper floor, with fake magic wands and more boxes displayed in the windows. A large circular table with ice cream pieces takes pride of place. A trolley filled with tricks can be pushed along the cobbled streets of Hogsmeade. Zonko's 3 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Zonko's 4 with Logo by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr Here’s how it looks in real life! Zonko's Real Life by Scarlet Patronus, on Flickr The journey of getting from “render to real life” began with a build on Bricklink Studio. From there, pieces were picked from our existing collection of LEGO. Any others were sourced on LEGO’s Bricks & Pieces service and Bricklink, or substituted for alternatives we already owned. The model was finally assembled when all pieces had been gathered. Any thoughts or feedback would be welcomed! If you’d like to keep up to date with our other MOCs and creations, please follow us on Instagram – instagram.com/scarlet_patronus_ . If you’re interested in trying the build yourself, instructions are now available via the following: https://ebay.co.uk/usr/scarletpatronus https://store.bricklink.com/ScarletPatronus?p=ScarletPatronus#/shop https://rebrickable.com/users/ScarletPatronus/mocs/ Thanks for taking the time to read this post!

  12. My very first creation in the Harry Potter universe. The moving staircase on itself wasn't much of a challenge. The moving balustrades were. Note that the port one already starts sliding inside the wall before the staircase begins moving. Additionally the starboard balustrade will only come out after the staircase began moving. (What? I'm used to building ships, don't staircases have port and starboard sides too?). All this is driven by a single mechanical system and I can tell you, this required a considerable amount of patience. I don't think I've ever experienced frustrations of this magnitude when building a lego creation before. You see, in the beginning, after a lot of fine tuning, it worked very smoothly. But as I finished it and wanted to start filming, the mechanism jammed all the time. Turns out the staircase was too heavy, which resulted in too much stress on the drive chain. I removed one step at a time until it worked again. The internals, for the interested, although there's not that much to see I'm afraid. Initially there was a corridor behind the door, with a width of 4 studs. But as the mechanism began jammed a lot when nearing completion, I had to remove it in order to supervise the mechanism below. I intend to expand this scene, I have learned a lot from this build and I'm sure I can overcome the limitations I came across. However, as this means I'll have to completely start over again, It won't be for the very near future. For the next version I want more platforms, so the staircase will actually lead somewhere. Those platforms should of course have moving balustrades of their own. As I see myself bringing this to exhibition events It would make sense to motorise the system so I can make it run continuously. And then maybe adding some other animations, such as moving portraits. It's all possible, I just need to learn how to do it .
  13. This lot encompasses my collection of LEGO Harry Potter sets from 2001-2004. Included are 100% complete inventory -Hogwarts Castle (2nd Edition) -Slytherin -Quidditch Practice -Aragog in the Dark Forest -Hagrid’s Hut (2nd Edition) -Dobby’s Release and a 99% complete -Knockturn Alley (missing 3 pieces) -Harry and the Marauder’s Map (missing 1 piece). The minifgures included are in generally good condition, with some minifgures unfortunately missing. What you see is what you get; the 2 rarest minifgures, Professors Dumbledore and Trelawney, are both included and in great condition. Looking to sell as a lot, not individually. This lot is priced to sell (Hogwarts Castle, Knockturn Alley, and Hagrid’s Hut alone go for $170, $50, and $60, respectively), so I am asking $250 for the entire lot. Feel free to comment and PM me! Photos available upon request, because I cannot post quality pictures on this thread.
  14. A new start Dumbledore: 'Minerva from this time on we will be doing it all differently. You are now looking at the new and improved Dumbledore! Call me Hipsterdore! I even had the Fab 5 redo the staff room. We are going to work on being a professional learning environment for these kids.' McGonagall: 'Sure...' Flitwick: 'You both are aware that I am an actual teacher and not a house elf. There is no reason for me to be serving you.' Dumbledore: 'Shush, Dobby!'
  15. [warning: this is very long and wordy] Hi everyone, like the rest of you I am very excited for the revived Harry Potter theme and look forward to seeing more sets next year! After the release of the Clock Tower this year I wanted to have some fun and experiment to see how LEGO could try to complete the entire Hogwarts castle, accurate to the movies with more similar modular buildings. In this thread I’m going to show and tell what I have come up with :) These are all just sketches/prototypes, and I do not plan to design full size versions (that’s for LEGO to do 😉). The models I have made are all ‘microscale’ sized and very simplified, with the ‘trophy’ figures representing minifigures, the ‘heroica’ figure representing bigfigs etc, and the 4x4 round plate representing the large hexagonal plate (89523) etc Preview examples: Firstly to get familiar with the layout and design of the castle itself I recommend watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIdYn3L2_0U. I also go by the harry potter wiki for identifying the towers etc. Firstly I decided on the scope of the ‘full castle’ when complete; LEGO for example has already excluded the large courtyards in front of the Great Hall and Clock tower, and also seems to be excluding bridges, overpasses and viaducts etc, as well as outer walls and some of the smaller buildings such as the ‘pepperpot’. So I will be doing the same, which does mean that technically not all of the final castle actually connects together… The first image shows a tiny build of Hogwarts I started with.
  16. Good evening, everyone, Since I promised you in the last topic to design more international models besides german models, today I would like to present you the model of the "Hall-Class 4900" of the "Great Western Railway" from Great Britain. The "Hall class 4900" were tender locomotives, which were built between 1924 and 1943. A total of 259 units were built and the locomotives were used for passenger and freight traffic. The locomotive with the railway number 5972 "Olton Hall" achieved special fame. It is the locomotive shown in the Harry Potter movies, which was specially repainted for this in the well-known red coloring. The model consists of approx. 1090 parts, is approx. 66 studs long and about 10 studs wide. A Power-Functions L-motor can be installed in the boiler. The IR-receiver and the battery box find comfortably place in the large tender. Most of the decals or printed components correspond to the original LEGO parts. Furthermore, the model is equipped with numerous striking details, such as the piping, the chassis or the detailed cabin. This model is also a little bit of a premiere, because for the first time not only LEGO standard components are used, but also railway wheels in XL and M by Big Ben Bricks. I also tried the Bricklink Part-Designer for the first time. Currently the manual is available in two different versions. One as GWR "Hall-Class 4900" in dark green and one as "Hogwarts Express" in known red. I hope that you like this version in particular, because there are already some versions, even directly from LEGO. Praise and criticism are very welcome. Kind regards Martin Further pictures in the flickr-folder or on our homepage
  17. ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix _____________________________ A little vignette about one of my favourite scenes from the Order of the Phoenix. Poltergeist Peeves wreaking havoc. His character never appeared in the films, to my regret, so it seemed only fair to give him a LEGO makeover, based on the video games' design for all you potterheads you get the reference, enjoy .

  18. With the new Harry Potter sets I wondered what a new Chamber of Secrets would look like. I would like the Basilisk to be moulded so I focused on the environment itself. Including the snake entrance and the tunnels Harry escaped through in the films before confronting the Basilisk again.
  19. I have always wanted the original 4757 Hogwarts Castle because it had a clock and a pendulum! I found its clock works to be a GREAT mystery until I could look into its instruction manual! Lego was so gracious to create the new Clock Tower and release it! I loved it very much. However, a great feature was missing: the pendulum! I decided to make minimal modifications for adding a pendulum and even motorizing it! My Clock Tower's clock work would not be a GREAT mystery because I made a video which showed how I built it!

    [Moc] hogwart wip

    I just wanted to share my wip moc of the 2018 great hall set. The hall is longer and taller, the staircase tower is taller and now is 3/4 instead of the front 1/2 of the tower in addition to adding extra floors. I just created the next section (to the right of the tower) and will eventually finish that section with tower and the courtyard. Mostly I wanted to make the new Clocktower set fit with the rest of the castle in a canon way. Pics https://www.instagram.com/p/BxLak2pnrrj/?hl=en
  21. Hello Lego and Harry Potter fans! I decided to share with you my MOC I did for "Magical Builds of The Wizarding World". Rowling's creation has been my passion for a very long time, but Lego returned to my life only in the end of 2015 and I am happy this contest gave me an inspiration to combine them! :) Techniques that I used here are not new at all, but still for the second MOC in my life - it's okay, I guess! What can beat Potter + Lego? Potter + Lego + Train of course :)

    [MOC] Hogwarts secrets

    Last week, I've made a Harry Potter MOC. This MOC isn't based on a scene of the movies, books or videogames. Harry has discovered a secret room in Hogwarts. He have to turn the statue to find a secret book.

  23. Merry Christmas for all Lego and Harry Potter fans! Merry Christmas from Hogwarts!! by Etel Enzos, en Flickr
  24. Like many others, I felt the latest release of the Hogwarts Express was lacking. In turn, I have stuffed an M motor in the boiler, radically altered the rods (based on the Emerald Night), put the PF receiver and battery box in the tender, and added doors to the carriage (Again, a la EM). The overall effect I think is much better visually and because I can run it at events now. I've included an internals picture so anybody wishing to see how it was done and get ideas is more than welcome to. The last one links to a video of the train in action. I can't remember how to link a Flickr video right...
