75945 Expecto Patronum 14.99$ - Harry (blue jacket), Sirius, dementor, patronus stag and small tree build. There could be two dementors, but for such a low price I think there will only be one.
75946 Triwizard Tournament 34.99$ - Harry (First Task), Cedric (First Task), Fleur (First Task), Krum (First Task), Rita Skeeter, semi-brick built Horntail and a spectators stand. All the champions are rumoured to be included, and I think they will use this opportunity to include Rita Skeeter as well plus one more fig. Hermione, Skeeter's photographer or Crouch maybe.
75947 Hagrid's Hut and Buckbeak Rescue 49.99$ - Hagrid, Dumbledore, Fudge, McNair, Hermione (pink sweater), Ron, Fang, Scabbers, Buckbeak, Hagrid's Hut (both parts) and a small pumpkin patch. The fake picture that made the rounds earlier had a reasonable selection of minifigs, but I think they might leave Harry out of this one, and if they want to include Ron, this is the set to do it. Unless they're saving Fudge for future Order of the Phoenix sets, I think he will be in either this or the Knight Bus set.
75948 Hogwarts Clock Tower 89.99$ - Apparently this is going to be the Yule Ball set, which actually makes a lot of sense, since a PoA version would be bound to have a lot of repeated minifigs, so: Harry (Yule Ball), Cedric (Yule Ball), Fleur (Yule Ball), Krum (Yule Ball), Hermione (Yule Ball), Ron (Yule Ball), and... 2-4 more figs in Yule Ball robes. Possible candidates are Cho, Parvati, Hagrid and Neville. A fun fig to include would be Moaning Myrtle, as this is a sizeable part of the castle, and the prefects' bathroom could be one of the rooms included. I'm still hoping for the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets with Myrtle, Lockhart and Ginny though...
75957 Knight Bus 39.99$ - Harry (blue jacket), Ernie Prang, Stan Shunpike, Sirius as dog and the Knight Bus. I expect at least one more fig, which could be Fudge, Tom the Barman, uncle Vernon or Aunt Marge. Maybe some small playground build too.
75958 Confidential 54.99$ - I'm blank.
759565 Confidential 14.99$ - If there is a graveyard set, this is probably it. If so, it should include Harry (Third Task), Wormtail, Voldemort, Lucius Malfoy, a small cauldron build and Tom Riddle's tomb. Having Cedric with the Tri-wizard cup as a CMF would make sense if this scene is just a small set.
75964 Advent Calendar 39.99$ - Since this is not the Yule Ball set I speculated yesterday, it will probably include some repeated figs, and some exclusive ones. I expect at least one exclusive Yule Ball fig in this, as well as Ron in his Christmas jumper. This could also be where we finally see Moaning Myrtle and Gilderoy Lockhart.
If the rumours and my guesses based on them are about right, this will be a great wave. The final act of Prisoner of Azkaban involves a lot of characters, so spreading them out across several sets would make sense. I am certain we will get Harry, Hermione, Sirius, Buckbeak and at least one dementor from Expecto Patronum and Hagrid's Hut, and we already have Lupin, Snape, Ron (his sweater in Whomping Willow is a good match for PoA as well) and one more dementor from the last wave, so if we get Wormtail in a new graveyard set and Sirius' dog form with the Knight Bus, we will have all the key players. The only fig I will be missing from a PoA version of the Clock Tower is Madame Pomfrey, but that's a small price to pay for a full set of exclusive figs in that set.
My biggest question, if all this turns out to be correct, is; Where are the Weasleys?! There is nothing about these rumoured sets that suggest we will see Ginny, Fred and George, or Mr. and Mrs. Weasley in this wave either. I guess they're saving them for the third wave as film six is very Weasley-centric and they can do another attack on the Burrow and maybe Fred and George's shop.
I think the problem with the patronus is that we see patronuses as white and transparant in the movies instead of this more solid sparkling ‘transparant’ blue. I would never have thought they’d do a patronus though, so I’m still very happy to be able to get one.
I also hope the rumoured advent calendar is interesting enough as a whole (mini builds, exclusive prints/characters/animals) to justify a purchase. I think christmas sweater Ron and Harry from the first movie are a MUST in the calendar!
I’m also sad that we apparently won’t be getting a shrieking shack in the PoA wave.
There's also a recolour of the Dumbledore CMF hair-hat combo (hat now in dark tan), but the leaker mistakenly put his head on fleur's Jule Ball body and vice versa.
Set number #75957 will cost €39.99 so I’m guessing this will be the Knight Bus set or the Patronus set (since it’s the first number in the row)
Now excuse me while I go yell at some teens to get off my lawn and to turn down their dadgum music
Thanks @wardm - I'm guessing that it will have the same RRP as #75951.
I'm eagerly awaiting the first images of the Tri-Wizard Challenge & Hagrid's Hut; the Hungarian Horntail has been rumoured to be partially brick-built which could be interesting!
