I'm off to the GWLS now...

Posted by ,

...so news may be a litle slower than usual over the next few days. We'll try and keep you posted on the set that's being unveiled, however I am saddened to see that a site has already published the information and pictures ahead of LEGO's official launch time (later today). I'm fairly sure the site concerned isn't a recipient of such information through official channels, so it seems that whoever passed it to them omitted a vital piece of information: when it should be revealed.

Anway, I hope to see you there, I'll most likely be in Caerphilly Hall manning the large train layout. If I'm not, ask where I am.

I don't want to give anything away here, other than to say that new set looks amazing, with some pieces in it that look really exciting! (Hope it's okay to share enthusiasm, as long as I don't share information.)

Thanks!

GWLS = Great Western LEGO Show

There's no mention or pics of the new set on any of the sites I frequent, so hopefully most people won't have their surprise spoiled. I certainly have no idea what the set is, although I'm delighted to hear it looks amazing !

@legocoastguard - That's a brilliant set, but I don't think thats the one Huw's talking about? if you can look at it on lego.com it's hardly something that lego would unveil with an 'exclusive preview'.

Look here; http://www.brickset.com/news/article/?ID=903

My best bet is something from the new (supposedly) pirates of the Caribbean theme (I assume it's okay to guess so long as I don't know anything about anything?)

Are they going to unveil just one set? Because if not, then there's a high probability that they'll be unveiling that new Harry Potter set as well. =D

I just found out about that new Diagon Alley set a few minutes ago, when I visited the brickshelf site. I didn't recognize it at once as one of the Harry Potter themes. I thought it was just a "My Own Creation" or a Medieval Market Village set that's been misplaced in the HP sets folder, but then I saw the box art and... boom! Another Harry Potter set! =D

Waaaaaaaaahhhh!!! Now I'm craving for seven new sets -- seven very expensive Harry Potter sets.

Here's a link by the way to the box art I found on Brickshelf: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=4685572

By the way, if my post contains too much spoilers (although I would suppose it doesn't since some of you have discussed the new HP set already), or if it has violated any rules here, feel free to delete it. I wouldn't mind... I just wanted to express my excitement! Hehehe... And it's October already! I do hope those new sets will get shipped to the Philippines. I want to have at least 4 of them. Waaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!

Okay, I'll keep quiet now. =D

@legolander there are lots of additional images and box art on the lego website as well as a designer interview.
I think that this will be the set as Huw said it would be unveiled 'later today' and it wasn't there this morning and it is an exclusive coming in January.

@Matthew / LegoCoastGuard - Thanks! Yup, I saw them already! And seeing those images made me even MORE excited! Although the only interior design that's really neatly done (in my opinion) is Ollivander's. But still, I WANT that set! And I WANT the other SIX sets... Oh, why do LEGO sets have to be soooo expensive... Hahaha! I'm going crazy here... =D

I better hit the sack, it's past 1 in the morning already... Grrr, these HP sets are killing me! Hahahaha! =D

Nice one Huw!

Well it looks like my plans have changed and I'll be there tomorrow (Saturday) instead of the Sunday.
Really looking forward to saying hi though and checking out the displays :-)

All the best to everyone for a really great day! :0)
