    I wouldn't mind another Hogwarts Express, if only they could make two passenger coaches and a more detailed locomotive! :) 
    2 coaches is just a matter of buying 2 sets! ;-) I'd love a nicely detailed one, say "Emerald Night meets Hogwarts". Would save me the trouble of One Day(tm) MOCing one up.
    Having bought more than one Emerald Night set, I just palette-swapped out the green for red on one of the locos and stuck one of the Hogwarts Express discs from the official set on the front.  It's not exactly the same as the HE by any means, but given my train MOCing skills are virtually zero I'm pretty pleased with the result it gave.  There seem to be a few examples around online of people doing a better conversion job too!

    As long as the new line of sets has a Harriest Potter included to go along with my Darthest Vader, I’ll be happy. 
    Not to be confused with Lepin's Harryish Potter.

    @mr_bennI was actually pondering on doing exactly that (well, actually, minus the front disc, that's a good idea) last weekend...

    This may be a long shot but will we get a D2C set based off the {Untitled Fantastic Beasts Sequel} in 2018, much like the recent trend of D2C sets based off on new movies / existing licenses.

    A couple of days ago Marcos visited the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London and the following day was first day of production of the sequel. Anyone reckon he visited the set for research purposes?

    Looks like my observation could be true...

    I'm hoping for something similar to the Hogwarts School Sculpture by Noble Collection, something showing a full Hogwarts Castle in a model layout. The play experience comes in when you can detach all the sections such as the Great Hall, Astronomy Tower, Dumbledore's Office individually and have play access to each one.

    Hopefully they re-release a Hagrid's Hut #4738.

    Pure speculation, nothing else.

    @Adzbadboy, I suspect that Brickfan article was based on a comment in the "What is the next set to be remade?" thread. Even so, I really hope both a CMF series and some new HP sets are coming. 

        From that thread- HalfPintOfInnes said:
    With the rumour of the "Harry Potter" Minifigure series next year, I could see them re-making set #4842, in the same way that the Disney Minifgure Series got the Disney castle shortly after it was released.

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw that article was "speculative piece based on forum comments." Otherwise known as "click bait"

    Pretty sure Allen's speculation is based off a combination over your observation, and a lot of speculation on it over on Eurobricks (he likes to jump the gun, a little).

    I think it’s pretty certain a few of these sets will be Brickheadz. Seems like the perfect IP for it.

    Plus there can then be complaints that some people submitted Harry Potter brickheadz to the IDEAS website and LEGO stole their ideas without crediting them.

    I genuinely look forward to this as part of any licensed set release now.

    The Simpsons House retiring...? Does this mean making room for a large Harry Potter D2C?

    Something like a huge D2C Castle and 2 CMFs series would make sense, seeing as we have seen this before with Simpsons. Though Simpsons had the Quick E Mart as well, so I guess then Potter could have the Diagon Alley as the second set?
    One can dream I guess.

    I'd imagine it's the end of its retail life, rather than going specifically to let HP start again.

    Well, I think we all know 'Horny Wyzrd Rods' is the Lepin translation.

    I would be curious to see if there is a reoccurrence of this piece in a possible Hogwarts Castle set as it does kind of follow the style of roofing seen in previous Harry Potter sets (https://brickset.com/parts/6018577/tower-roof-w-tiles).

    That would look great in Sand Green!

    The suitcase sounds intriguing. But really I just want the castle.

    @Mynatt Apparently that's what the pictures in this article purport to show! 

    http://comicbook.com/movies/2018/02/16/lego-wizarding-world-sets/

    Apparently according to the 2018 section on brickset there's supposed to be a D2C Hogwarts Castle that's the same scope/price/piece count (roughly) as the Disney Castle, coming in August

    any chance the 500€ price tag is actually for the castle + the great hall?

    Unlikely.  Rumors point to the castle itself being in the 500 dollar/euro range, and the Great Hall is not mentioned in any of those.  Until the picture release today there wasn't anything more than minor speculation that the two sets would even connect together as far as I know.

    To me the grand hall is more a suedo microscale model anyway. For 500 USD the castle better be a near scale to the minifigs, though
