… Just thought you’d like to know
All at a high CPP, so there is a completeness to the disappointment.
With the current promo on exchange of VIP points sort of getting myself prepared.
Thanks if anyone does know, suspect or guessing at £75 pound spend for the UK.
I'm guessing it's a re-boot of Raiders of the lost Ark....
'We have top men working on it right now'
Doh! It totally passed me by in all the advent calendar news. I have to admit, I was rather shocked that I didn't see an article on it already, with LEGO advertising it so heavily, lol.
76400 – $19.99
76401 – $49.99
76402 – $79.99
76403 – $99.99
76404 – $44.99 (Rumoured to be this year's advent calendar)
76405 – $469.99
76406 – $49.99
76407 – $89.99
76408 – $119.99 (Possibly more buildable figures, as its the same price point)
I really look forwards to seeing the 20$ set, as the previous ones have been amazing, depicting pivotal moments and featuring great minifigs. I think one of the 50$ sets will be a new Hagrid's Hut, as the previous one retired last fall and I can't see them leaving that off the market for long. The other 50$ set could possibly be a new Quidditch set, or, if we're lucky, a new set based off the Second Task. There's not too much to build for a Second Task set, but it should include up to 10 figs, so can't be too small either (even if #71735 Tournament of Elements set a good precedent with 7 figs in a 25$ set). The 80$ could be a part of the castle, although no obvious candidate presents itself, as everything has been done fairly recently, so maybe its a long awaited new Shrieking Shack? Its the same price as last year's Hogsmeade set, so I'd really like it to be an extension to that, perhaps featuring the Shrieking Shack and the Hog's Head? The 90$ and 100$ sets can both be parts of the castle, but I hope at least one of them is a collectable I won't want (i.e. a mosaic or large scale object).
The big question is, of course, what is #76405? My biggest fear is that it's another "half" to Diagon Alley, featuring Gringotts and The Leaky Cauldron. My fiancé still hasn't gotten over my buying #75978 (and I'm not sure I have either). There's no room (financially or spatially) for another set like that, so I really hope it's a large scale object (buildable broomstick?) or another microscale, although I have no idea what such a set could be based on... My biggest fear is that it's a Death Star-style Ministry of Magic, because I will definitely want that. I have a real completionist itch for minifig scale Harry Potter, so I really hope I'm spared the tempation of something awesome with this set. Time will tell...
It's been back for a while, actually, there just wasn't any activity, which I wanted to ammend :)
Fingers crossed! I won't feel any need for buying that.
The other sets look pretty darn good. The Horntail and Shrieking Shack are my favorites from these releases.
