Given that they have a penchant for adding completely random characters like Dean Thomas and Susan Bones in the current wave, I wouldn't be surprised if even more obscure characters appear in future.
They normally have a get 5 figures get 6th free offer by Lego. This time apparently Lego had said that “the Harry Potter figures are in short supply so free ones can only be from another series”. Which given how many boxes are around already I don’t believe it.
It sounds more like “we have too much left over stock from previous CMFs that we need to shift”. The toy shop had plenty of the last two regular CMFs lines, batman 2 and ninjago. None of which I want any more of. As stickers are valid until end of the year, I will wait and see what the next set looks like.....
Looking forward to opening the Harry Potter ones though
I'd like a second series of CMFs. There are many figures that I want to collect. It's likely we'll get several more sets, but history shows us we'll get lots of Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Past sets have tended to leave out interesting supporting characters. So even if there is a new "Escape from Privet Drive" (for example) we may get Vernon, Harry and Ron, but not Dudley or Petunia.
I tried to pick characters they haven't done before and characters in need of an update. Also alternate outfits that would only appear in sets that would Lego will probably never make. I admit it's hard to come up with appropriate accessories for some of my choices.
1. Lily Potter- wand, baby Harry
2. James Potter- wand, snitch
3. Vernon Dursley- twisted shotgun
4. Petunia Dursley- frying pan and sausage
5. Dudley Dursley- pig tail
6. Arthur Weasley- wand, muggle artifact
7. Molly Weasley- wand, garden gnome
8. Remus Lupin- wand, wolf head
9. Nymphadora Lupin(Tonks)- wand, alternate colored hair
10. Peeves- chains
11. Moaning Myrtle- cauldron
12. Kreacher- locket
13. Rita Skeeter- quill, daily prophet
14. Firenze- centaur stuff
16. Kingsley Shacklebolt- wand, broom
18. Harry Potter Dress robes- wand
19. Ron Weasley Dress robes- wand
20. Hermione Granger Yule Ball dress- wand
21. Viktor Krum Dress robes- wand
22. Fleur Delacour Yule Ball dress- wand
23. Bill Weasley- Goblin Gold
24. Charlie Weasley- Baby dragon
25. Griphook- sword of Gryffindor
I’d love to see some more Hogwarts sections: Defence against the dark arts classroom, maybe another troll on the loose toilet, the room of requirement, herbology green house, another Dumbledore’s office, maybe a scene from the battle of Hogwarts with breaking/exploding wall sections, maybe the porch where they get attacked by a giant, they could include some dementors, boathouse, ... These are things I’d love to see them do, but I don’t know if they’re that realistic.
I think they will release another Hagrid’s hut and Knight Bus.
Other locations I wish to see them visit (again) are: Hogsmeade (with an Abrefort minifig), another Shrieking Shack some place in the ministry of magic, another diagon alley set, Bill and Fleur’s shell cottage, Xenophilius Lovegood’s tower, Gringotts vault with dragon, a forbidden forest set with grawp and centaurs, another privet drive set with exploding letter function from the fireplace, another Burrow set, sirius black’s house (modular style), goderic’s hollow graveyard with bathilda bagshot minifig, ...
From the fantastic beasts franchise for the first movie there aren’t that many places that stand out. They could do a macusa set, underground fight ...
I’m guessing the crimes of Grindelwald will visit more interesting places that could be made into a set, like for example the circus.
Does anyone have other ideas?
"Hogwart's Section", featuring Moaning Myrtle's bathroom and the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets, possibly in combination with the Dark Arts classroom. Including Harry, Ron, Moaning Myrtle, Gilderoy Lockhart, Mrs. Norris and possibly Ginny. (Maybe even regular Neville, if the set is large enough, and does feature the Dark Arts classroom.) I don't think a set like this would necessarily include the actual Chamber of Secrets, since we already got the basilisk, and the castle seems to stay above ground.
"The Shrieking Shack", including Harry, Ron, Hermione, Sirius, Wormtail and Werewolf Lupin. Maybe a dementor as well.
"Hagrid's Hut", featuring Hagrid and some more characters. It could be the trio, like last time, and it could also include characters like Malfoy or Fudge. For a 1-3 rendition of the hut, Malfoy seems a likely antagonist, as he discovers Norbert and is attacked by Buckbeak, both of whom are likely candidates to be included in such a set. In addition to these fantastic beasts, it should include Fang.
"The Knightbus", including Harry, Stan Shunpike, Ernie Prang, and maybe someone like Tom the Barman, Fudge, or a Dursley.
"The Burrow", including all the Weasleys (maybe even Percy). As this first wave was completely Weasley free (apart from Ron) I can't see this set not happening. All the Weasleys are very popular characters, so I can't see them all being excluded if they haven't been saved for this set.
Also thanks to snowhitie for posting those pictures, it's a set I wasn't that excited about from descriptions but it looks really fun.
1 issue I have is hermoine cat won't stay on the studs, keeps popping off. Anyone else have this issue?
Side note, today the new Harry's Journey to Hogwarts polybag was released at Target. I had some trouble finding it because it shares the same DCPI # as all other poly bags, but eventually the associate was able to help me find them. This set is a really cheap way to get some extra owls, generic hogwarts uniforms, cauldrons, wands, and spell book pieces!
I haven't decided if I will buy the new giant castle coming out on the 15th for VIPs.. I don't really love microfigure-scaled things, but it looks magnificent. Really, I almost want it just for the founder minifigs, haha! But, I don't think I have room to display it. The only "giant" set I own is the Disney Castle, and I can't really host something much larger than that.
Will a complete minifigure from this wave be required to have both wands (and sprue? ) in your eyes to be 'complete'. Or are you looking at the spare wands like set spares - not required for the build therefore no need to include them.
Having now seen them in the plastic I think my top two are Moody/Barty Crouch Jr & Newt. Both have lots of detailing and the Barty Crouch Jr toungue face is brilliant!
