This series is going to be so good for parts to make Lego Doctor who figures!

By in United Kingdom,

Finally! A new briefcase piece in the same style as the new books! Also, they just all look so good! I’m excited!

Now where are those D2C Hogwarts pictures at?

Edit: Seemingly some of the smaller figures have new leg moulds that allow them to sit and walk! Finally!

Can’t wait to get Newt and the Niffler!

Just seen even more of these on the brickfan page, Loving the Niffler, Dobby and some of accessories being used aswell especially the suitcase and the new decorated baguette piece..

Great, just great!!! Never collected minifigs, but I guess this time I will

ARE THOSE MEDIUM SIZED LEGS!?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I see a couple I might get for parts (specifically the girl on the far right and the guy with ginger han solo hair), but I don't care about harry potter.

However, this did get me thinking about my dream minifigure series. The answer is: Formula One. Lisenced with accurate suits and helmets, hair, and flesh faces with a determined face for driving and a happy face for podium (or, for a few, points-finish) celebrations.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Dont have a lot of cmf but the quality of the plastic (look n feel) seems less to me. Am I correct or just imagining things?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Can someone tell me all the names of these characters? I’m not that knowledgeable about Harry Potter lol

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look amazing.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Ooooh, I see 3 new dress pieces for my collection... :-)
The end of 2x2x2 slope pieces for dresses?

Gravatar
By in United States,

The new legs are awesome and so so welcomed. The pieces are nice, but for some reason I was hoping for more new pieces. I also hate the new suitcase, it's way way WAAAAAAAAAAY too large.

Also why isn't there the picture with the whole collection including the 6 from Fantastic Beasts?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

We'll update the article with names etc. later. Both Chris and I are out today. Sorry for the tardy service :-)

Update from Chris: Names added!

By in Poland,

I don't Understand two Harry's tho, sure, he's the titular character, and the invisibility cloak looks cool, but still, I'd rather see Luna Lovegood, or Minerva McGonnagal, or even Lucius Malfoy, and save one of the Potter's to a second batch (if we get one, judging by the Simpsons and TLNM CMFs this is highly possible.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally! Best series in quite sometime.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love them!

And I guessed wrong. I thought Cho was Padma Patil, but Cho definitely makes more sense. And I assumed Lee Jordan was Dean Thomas, Harry and Ron's classmate.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Still no reasonably good sirius black figure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Are we sure it's not Dean Thomas instead of Lee Jordan?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Alright so those areeee maybe the best CMFs released in ages.

Not sure why Cho's Skin is darker than it needs to be

New short legs will take some getting used to

But they look amazing!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Eggyslav Luna Lovegood is in the minifigure series and Mcgonagall is in 75954 the Great Hall, but I do agree that a Lucius Malfoy or Sirius Black figure would have been better than two Harry Potter Variants.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think they look absolutely fantastic; perhaps my favourite series of Collectable Minifigures to date! The articulated short legs are brilliant and I love all the new hair pieces. It's good to see such broad coverage of the films and books as well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why does Tina have a hot dog?!??

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They are Fantastic! Any news about the distribution within a box?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Loving the accessories that come with these, saves me having to buy 75952 just for the niffler.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not a Harry Potter fan, but as mentioned above, think I'll be grabbing a couple of these to convert to Doctor Who characters.

Looks like its going to be mostly feeling for hair pieces to try and identify this series.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Dobby looks out of scale with the other figures
Not really sure what they could do about that though

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not a Harry Potter fan but these look great for parts. Voldemort snake I want, Headwin and Niffle.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Voldemort looks awful. He should have black robes and not green. Nagini is too small and why does Flitwick look like mini Hitler. i personally think these look terrible. Which is a shame as I freaking well adore Harry Potter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I despise Harry Potter, but wow! These are absolutely incredible!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Why do the Harry and Hermione Granger look older than the ones that appear in the sets?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They missed a trick with invisibility cloak Harry by not just having his printed head on a clear minfig body!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@BrickHelix Tina eats a hot dog while spying on the Second Salemers at the beginning of the film.

Gravatar
By in Slovakia,

They look great!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ArchieJ
They got it correct. Voldemort actually has green robes in the movie, and they were based on the book. They just show very muted under the lights of filming.

These are fantastic.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

So... 22? So "almost but not really" 3 in a box. Oh boy...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes, a Cho Chang minifigure equals, finally, a Ravenclaw figure!!!!! My school finally gets some recognition! This line is dope by the way!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Voldemort for my TLBM Collection!

TLG's official FB account says it's Dean Thomas: "Dean Thomas, a Chaser on the Gryffindor Quidditch team at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is new to the Wizarding World having been raised by Muggles before discovering his magical heritage. — with Harry Potter and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London."

NEW LEGS NEW MOLD WOOOOHOOOOO!

My poor, poor, extremely poor wallet....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Love that little plant. Lots of great details.

Gravatar
By in United States,

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Box quota will be interesting. 3 sets of HP to give 48 and 2 sets of FB to give 12? That would sell me a whole box of 60. They look great.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Aaaaaahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOO excited!!!!!! Definitely going to get at least one set. Yay!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look fantastic and will tear my wallet to shreds, one small purchase at a time. And that's coming from someone who couldn't care less about HP and his Magic Poop Mitt. Can't wait to get my hands on that platypus looking little fur baby, that overgrown caterpillar creature, those wonderful new bendable short legs, new giant suitcase, and so many other fantastic parts. Btw, Mad-Eye Moody's head would be perfect for Snake Plissken from Escape from New York (and L.A. - which was inferior imho).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I just wanna say I predicted 9 of them. Just sayin.

I'm a HP fan so I was expecting more must-cops. Not going to have to feel out too many to waste my student loan on.

Btw, I hope those aren't medium legs.

Also, always surprised by the number of HP haters and ignorants.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does look like one of the best series for ages.

But the most exciting thing is waiting for Golem25 to go off on one again about JK Rowling. C'mon don't let us down.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just noticed Dumbledore is holding the pensieve!

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

Dobby's a great improvement!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am SO excited for these! Besides Dobby, these all look amazing and I can’t wait to try to buy them all! Also, I wouldn’t have noticed the medium sized legs if someone didn’t mention it! I can’t wait!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I know that the fabric skirt piece is not always successful looking when put on, but shouldn’t the official image of Cho’s skirt look better?

I mean, I guess it’s nice that LEGO is saying “Hey, here’s what it is going to look like...” but still, it looks pretty bad.

I wish I had the moneys for the continuation of the Harry Potter theme, but with Friends and Elves and the Disney Brickheadz that are coming, I don’t think there’s much of a chance. Some of these look pretty good...

Gravatar
By in United States,

No Professor Minerva McGonagall?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

They look really cool! I'm hoping LEGO is making these CMF series of more popular franchises as well.

Gravatar
By in Russian Federation,

This new Dumbledore looks absolutely incredible!
I want his figure very much

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well crap...
I think I want them all!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Well I've been waiting for the fully-fledged return of Lego HP for years now, so this is M A G I C A L, but for those of you who are not such Potternerds, there's a new Leg piece that's in-between height of the normal and short legs!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'd been skeptical of the idea before but I'm actually quite impressed with these new "mid-length" legs. Unlike fan-made ones that attempted to add articulation to the three-plate-tall short legs (at the expense of their appearance), these add an extra plate of height that puts them halfway between Lego's own short legs and the five-plate-tall standard legs. It's a great compromise for older child/younger teen characters like Harry and his friends, keeping them shorter than adult figs but neither as short nor as limited in articulation as characters like Yoda.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm liking the movable small legs!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fantastic looking series. Probably my favorite so far. It's nice to be getting so many side figures. With Dean Thomas we now have the entirety of the boys in Harry and Ron's year! Also super excited to be getting a Ravenclaw school uniform! Definitely will be getting them all and in multiples for many of them!

Gravatar
By in Italy,

Wait a second. No Hagrid? No McGonagall? And, worst of all, NO SNAPE??? One of the best characters in, well, every work of fiction EVER?
Instead we got a bunch of people I didn't even remember, and two Harrys. At least they didn't forget Hermione and Ron...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@biffuz Hagrid, Mcgonagall, and Snape appear in the great hall lego set.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Finally, articulated short legs! This series looks amazing, and I'm going to get every single one of each figure!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Ha I didn't want to like these. Guess I'll be getting more CMF's. They look pretty fantastic really.

Gravatar
By in United States,

OH MY GOSH THESE ARE SO AMAZING I NEED ALL OF THEM

Gravatar
By in Germany,

And don't forget about the Bricktober ToysRUs special boxes: they contain Snape, Umbridge, Slughorn and Hooch!

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Dear santa - can we get Lord of the Rings CMF next time?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Now my Hogwarts display will truly come alive!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Where is Sirius? He seems to be the most notable exception to this point.

Also, is that a teaser for a DtC Diagon Alley?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm a little disappointed that there are so many remakes - only Cedric, Dean and Cho are new for Harry Potter. I'm also upset that the Dursleys didn't make an appearance. Hopefully we'll get a bit more variety in any second wave!

I'd especially like to see Fudge, Slughorn, new Lockhart, more Weasleys, the Potters, Kreacher, Rita Skeeter, Moaning Myrtle, Tonks, Shacklebolt etc.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great figures, just wanted the original Dumbledore in the first two films. Waiting now for rumors of a second wave!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oh my poor wallet!
Broken open and raided for Harry Potter figures.

Loving the new parts, especially the vegetation and animals.

Gravatar
By in United States,

ARE THOSE MOVABLE SHORT LEGS!?!?!?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm pretty pleased with the selection. I think they all look pretty good, with interesting accessories for many. I'm guessing a lot of the omissions will be covered in sets or a 2nd series of figures. I originally thought the pink shirted female was Umbridge, but then I remembered she wasn't blonde, so Luna Lovegood makes much more sense.

Gravatar
By in United States,

like natro220 before me, I thought I was going crazy, and was sure that pink-clothed figure was Umbridge. It's got a bit of an odd face for Luna

Gravatar
By in United States,

This has been quite a year for CMFs. Between series 18 and this one, it will mark the first time I’ll buy CMFs since the monster series.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ooo. Cheap way to hoard some nifflers! Loving Cho’s owl too. Variant ginger cat print for Crookshanks too?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@iso3200 or 2x complete sets of 22, and additionally 8x dobbys, 3x dumbledores, 2x newts and 3x single randoms...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Harry with invisibilty cloak looks good... We finally have an official cloak. Harry in Hogwarts robes looks meh... a different hairpiece which is interesting and hedwig.
Cedric Digory looks pretty good with the Hufflepuff robes. Mad-Eye Moody looks GORGEOUS he looks better then the film version! :)
Quidditch Malfoy looks fine... I won't really need him though because I can put the head from the great hall onto a Slytherin body from the Quidditch set.
Hermione looks good... Crookshanks is an old piece but oh well. The new hairpiece looks pretty good on her, though. Prof. Trelawney looks FAB. That new hairpiece is PERFECT!!!! Teacup looks new too...
Honestly... Dobby looks a little creepy. I think the old one looked better... but that book print is sweet. Dean Thomas looks great! I love the robes...
Hello Luna! Do you like your new hairpiece? I do! :) Ron looks fantastical. I LOVE that new hairpiece on him, and the cheesy grin is perfect! That's Flitwick? Hmmm... Hairpiece look fab, but imo doesn't look much like him.
DUMBLEDORE YEESH YOU LOOK TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE I THINK I'M DREAMING
Neville looks ok, I like the screaming plant. :)
You-Know-Who and Nagini look great, great new mold for the snake! And CHO CHANG FINALLY a Ravenclaw torso! MUST HAVE

who cares about fantastic beasts... naw just kidding. Newt: NEw briefcase and niffler, must have.
Credence and Percival look OK... Tina gets a HOT DOG? Queenies new piece looks great! (Not sure what it is)
Jacob looks good... like the doughnuts. :) Thanks for reading. :)

By in Spain,

So many cool accesories, not interested at all in HP but the fans will enjoy it. I hope we have a Star Wars collection or Disney 2 at some point, I really want it!

Gravatar
By in United States,

All in all, this series looks amazing! I guess this will be the first time that I will have to track down all of them! :)

Well played Lego, well played.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Do I see that right?!? Are there new legs? This is fantastic (beasts). Ha, ha, ha.
All minifigures look great. You can find more images at Brickfanatics.

WOOOOOOOOO
HYPETRAIN

Oooooooh is that a nagini mold

Gravatar
By in United States,

Boy, these look great! The prints and parts alone are worth it (even if you're not into the Harry Potter-verse).
Can't wait to get on these.
And I love the photography Lego is doing lately. Not too polished and illustrated. I like this more natural look and even with the dings on the table and dust. Nice touch.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does the backdrop mean that the HP d2c set is actually Diagon Alley???

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does Hedwig come with one of the Harrys?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hate these reveals with terrible photos. Obviously the figures look great, but I'd rather look at them all when it's all clear and such - why Parade couldn't do this...I do not know. HYPED though, lol.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What's that you say, TLG? Diagon Alley modulars?

Thanks in advance!

Gravatar
By in Norway,

They've just been on a photoshoot at the inside tour. There are other photos from different [film] sets.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It looks like only Harry with robes and Hermione get articulated short legs, while Harry with cloak, Malfoy, Dobby and Flitwick have fixed legs.

Edit - and maybe Neville, can't see but he looks taller than Dobby

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Absolutely brilliant, exceeded expectations for me. Can't wait to add them to my Minifigure wall.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ok this isn’t as bad as I thought these would turn out. I was expecting like the great hall set, so I was dreading this but this is fine. Would’ve preferred something else but me not being upset is a win!

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

Movable... short... legs...?!?!?!?!
it's been 3000 years... now I can die in peace

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I love those!!!! For the first time, i want almost all of the series figures. The one i am skipping on is Cho, who i find rather boring. It is an odd choice to include her and Dean Thomas (i do like his outfit tho). I need to rant about the lack of Sirius Black or other members of Wesley family... Regardless, veru happy this series is happening.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I aa surprised that nobody has commented on doby's new head mold

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

These are amazing... Movable short legs? Oh my word. Very happy. Been looking forward to these for ages and thye don't dissapoint.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I became I big fan of Harry potter in 2015, long after the sets were discontinued, when they were out I just passed by them not interested. When I found out how expensive they are online when I became a fan, I was disappointed in myself.

When I found out they were bringing it back I was amazed, but also scared it might not be as good. I was wrong, the revealed sets all apeall to me. Then recently after I made a Brickset account, (I have been reading since December 2016 with no account) I saw an article, No The article, the one. "Harry potter Minifigures confirmed" I was literally bouncing off the walls. Then when I saw this article this morning I read it immediately (even though I was in a hurry) and basically stared a those articulated "little legs" mould.

These figs are by far my most favourite series, I will probably pick up half of them (while going bankrupt and looking like a fool in the childrens isle feeling though packs).

Side note:Brickset, You are the only Lego news site I trust, keep doing what you do and don't stop, you guys reviews are the best, I read every single one even if I'm not interested in that set, the review makes me want it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

more Ravenclaw! yay!

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Maybe the different sized legs suggest aging for some of the characters? After all, it's a theme that does have them start off as 11-12 and grow up towards the age of 17-18. Would explain the difference in the two Harrys ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Will there be any other cmfs this year? August seems a bit early...
Also, 22 is way too many figs for one series. You don't think 20 was enough? That just makes it harder to get your favorites. Come on Lego!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thats Cho? Really thought it was one of the Patil twins.
But that Dumbledore is aces, so it all works out

Gravatar
By in Spain,

Any knows if this serie has a "rare" minifig per box???? like as policeman???

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Cool new parts, looking forward to them!

Graves looks really bad though, I guess the figure is supposed to represent him mid-transition to Grindelwald. I made a custom Graves with a regular black suit + white arms, a black Cape, Poe Dameron's head and Dr. Strange's hair from the Infinity War Sanctum.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Mad Eye Moody and Fantastic Beasts figures are great, but too bad they put another Harry Potter if there is already a Harry Potter in this series. Plus they are short legs rather than regular legs just like in the previous HP sets. No all the House ghosts like the Gray Lady and Bloody Baron, No Moaning Myrtle and Tom Riddle, nothing from the Dursleys, No Sirius Black, No Remus Lupin in Werewolf form, There is Cedric Diggory but no Fleur Delacour and Viktor Krum, you gave Luna Lovegood a short legs but in the fifth film she's a teenager and she never appeared in the first to fourth films, and that is not Crookshanks.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Based on the character selection it's heavily biased towards The Goblet of Fire. Most of the sets look like they are based on the first three books/films. There are still a dozen characters from Goblet that could be made easily (Karkaroff, Fleur, Fred/George/Bill/Arthur/Molly/Ginny Weasley, Remus, Sirius, Barty Crouch + Jnr, Wormtail) before you move on to the later books.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

TFW you want become an actor just to have a minifig based on your likeness.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

@The solitary dark, Mad-Eye has Barty Crouch jr. as a double sided head. He comes with a hairpiece for him as well. And @Ephseb, there's probably a normal Graves head on the other side, as he too comes with an extra hairpiece so you can alternate between the two.

Gravatar

Harry in hogwarts robes and a few other characters haf short poaible legs!!!

Jointed mini legs? Sign me up!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This series looks great! Still hoping that 2019 will give us Peter Pettigrew, Sirius, Tom Riddle, The other triwizard champions, and Xenophilius.

Gravatar
By in Ireland,

Great selection of minifigures, surprised they weren’t leaked before this reveal (I assume they weren’t leaked anyway, based on my daily check of #legoleaks on instagram haha). And I’m glad that awful rumour of a 1-in-4-boxes exclusive hard-to-find figure turned out to be rubbish (and of which we will never speak of again). I think my favourites are Prof Trelawney, Luna Lovegood, Mad-Eye Moody, Dean Thomas, Prof Dumbledore, Cho Chang and Queenie Goldstein. Oh I’ve a lot of favourites, yeah I like them all really. :) And I can’t wait to see the new poseable shorter legs, another nice innovation to the minifigure design for the 40th anniversary. :)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Finally I can get all those old fashioned clothes pieces from Fantastic beasts!
They are all great figures.

The Harry Potter series is a bit disappointing. (its great if you like Harry Potter but there are not many pieces that can be reused)

Gravatar
By in France,

My daughter will be happy to collect these minifigs.
She has been reading Harry Potter's books for 2 years now.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Random, but good! One of those sets where I will be happy with a full set and no need for multiples.

The figures pic was definitely taken at the Diagon Alley set at the Warner Bros studios, just across the road from me :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Good thing that they made a movable short legs. I like the Nagani accessory but Crookshanks is actually a male Persian cat but in this CMF series, he looks more liked Mrs Norris than Crookshanks which belongs to Argus Filch, not Hermione.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Yessssss! I want the whole lot RIGHT NOW!!

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Luckily I have no interest in Harry Potter. Some of these will be good for parts though.

Gravatar

@CrackedArms: You posted... 24 times. I've seen double posts before, but never to this extent...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@crackedarms I think that is illegal...

Gravatar
By in United States,

For Harry Potter CMF Series 2, it should be more from Harry Potter but less from Fantastic Beasts. The only student to have regular legs in this series is Cedric Diggory, but Cho Chang and Luna Lovegood have short legs because Cho is already a teenager in Goblet of Fire while Luna appears from Order of the Phoenix to Deathly Hollows Part 2.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I need them all but fantastic beasts ones not a fan of those the rest are amazing

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look amazing!!! Although I was really hoping Bellatrix would be one of the figures... Hopefully a second series will happen with her in it. All-in-all, this is hands down the best licensed series we've gotten.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

perfect! the residents of the hogwarts castle are here coming in the middle of august :)

Gravatar
By in Italy,

@thebrickinator Snape is not in the great hall, he's in the quidditch and willow sets. Anyway, it doesn't change the fact that this selection is silly - it's the same old trick to push people to buy more.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Minifigure articulated short legs aren't new. They have been available from a US third party company for years. You can see some in this picture: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/AmperZand/Fantasy/goblins.jpg . They're just new as official LEGO parts, that's all.

I'm not into HP/FB, but some of these are good for parts. That snake is cool! Are the slope skirt pieces the new, articulated kind?

@Scottchay, LEGO can't make transparent minifigures with their current technology. Transparent pieces are made from polycarbonate that cracks from the friction of being rubbed against other polycarbonate parts. So while transparent polycarbonate-to-opaque ABS joints are possible, movable polycarbonate-to-polycarbonate ones aren't. That is probably why LEGO never did clear Bilbo or Frodo minifigures to represent them when invisible.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I hope all Minifigures come with black/custom baseplates and have the same quality to the minifigures from the sets. Usually CMF's are lower grade since they are not meant for play.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zander LEGO has made several minifigures with transparent legs. Check out the Ninjago Ghost Warriors. Not sure if transparent arms have ever been made.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@datsunrobbie yes, transparent arms and also heads have been made.

Example: Lego agents, Ninjago, and a few others

But @zander you make a valid point transparent minifig bodies have never been made.

Gravatar
By in Russian Federation,

At 1st I thought I could pass it. But then, after close look, I decided that they are pretty nifty.

Gravatar
By in United States,

These look absolutely fantastic! Proff Trelawney is great, more Fantastic Beasts are awesome, and those new half sized legs are awesome (if LEGO ever made BIONICLE minifigs we could distinguish Matoran and Turaga now.)

My one gripe is Cho Chang. The made her WAY to dark, in most shots she's the palest of the group.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I honestly forgot what even happend in fantasic beasts and I just saw it like last year ????????

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Cho is an easy fix. Just replace the head and hands with some paler ones, and keep the hair and torso. If you buy two, you can use the two heads from the CMF and one of the Ravenclaw torsos to make the Patil twins.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@datsunrobbie and @Supertaco77, Transparent minifig parts do indeed exist, but as far as I know, they are always connected to ABS parts, not to other polycarbonate pieces. The Ninjago ghost warriors - which I have - have ABS hips, not polycarbonate ones.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I admit, I don't know much about Harry Potter considering I've only read the first for books and have not seen any of the movies, so my knowledge is very thin. However, I do remember the last wave of Harry Potter stuff, and this is certainly a significant upgrade. Everything looks so much refined and even my mom liked the last series a lot, so I think that getting this stuff is kind of a no - brainer.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Everyone still excited to see James and Lily Potter to be made physically before, but sadly they never featured.

Maybe they would feature in HP CMF Series 2. Anyways, the most anticipated figures in this series are Cedric, Cho Chang, Dumbledore, Mad-Eye Moody, Voldemort (Because of the Nagani Accessory), and the entire Fantastic Beasts characters,

Gravatar
By in United States,

Meh. I’m not into Harry Potter at all. So, like Ninjago, I’m just going to go ahead and divert funds from this series of minifigures to something else.

Gravatar
By in Finland,

@Ephseb While Graves has a white hairpiece for Grindelwald, in the photos he mistakenly has Gridelwald's face with Graves' hairpiece.

Also, this is the best CMF series alogside The Ninjago Movie and The Simpsons ones. I love that the Fantastic Beasts figures have dual moulded legs and more accurate colours, making them so much better than the ones released with Dimensions.

This collectible looks very nice but we will not be buying any of them following the debacle with series 18 - the one policeman per box (which was not on our list) and the impossible to find (here at least in .cz) clown.
In my opinion Lego is doing a disservice to its fans with the random bag idea - I guided my daughter away from Kinder Surprise eggs which we call in this household 'Kinder Disappointment' because the children never get what they actually wanted - this is Lego's variant of the Kinder Disappointment.

Lego, we love you, you're the toy of the century (how many times?) for offering us something that others couldn't based on an honest premise to 'Play Good' right? So now that your patent has expired, lead the way by delivering products that your consumers want - not a deceptive 'hope you get what you wanted' - 'so try again' strategy.

There'll be no more minifigs collected (at least in this household) until the packaging explicitly states what's going to be inside.

Sorry to be a downer,

Lili's Daddy.

I am very disappointed with this! I think Lego should stick to classic minifigures and their own creations i.e. Lego Movie, Lego Batman Movie, etc. This series is terrible, the Ninjago series was bad, and don't even get me started on the Simpsons!

Yunno, for a mainly UK-based website, I'm surprised by the number of HP flaming in this comments section...

I believe the Percival Graves in this CMF Series is actually Grindlewood in disguise because of his face doesn't match with hair. I hope he has a second face that based on the actual Graves.

Very excited for these, but I have a few quarrels. (1) The old Dobby minifigure looks much more like the character than the new figure. I think it might be the eyes. (2) I know Voldemort's costume from the film is technically green, but it's so dark that it appears black. They should have used black for the minifigure because the green just looks weird. (3) Harry never had the swoopy emo hair in the films... that piece works much better for OOTP Ron. They should have made a new piece for Harry, because the one they made for young Harry looks fantastic.
