You are not alone. I feel like they're an extension of Funko Pops and I hate Funko Pops.

Forgot to post here after the tweet, but Chris McVeigh uploaded his building guides for those sweet star wars builds he did a while back, the animatronic style ones:

Anyone considering getting into the modular game?

I have three used buildings that need a new home.


Palace Cinema
Detective's Office
Parisian Restaurant

They are presently built and a little dusty but have also been adult owned and are in perfect condition.

A quick wash is all that’s needed to make the bricks look brand new.

I’d like to send all 3 to the same place.

$420 for the trio, shipped if you’re in the US.

They have instructions but no boxes.

For anyone that might be on the fence, I will also add a flower cart, a hot dog cart polybag and ten additional random minifigures to inhabit your new street.

I feel like they've really scaled back on the set sizes from the OG HP sets. Been noticing that with a lot of sets actually.

I'd be curious to see how sets compare, I feel like they are more detailed now with smaller pieces for sure, which can up the brick count, but the footprint might still be smaller. And they are def focused on more minifigs etc, they know what sells lol

That makes sense. But WTF Quidditch Match looks like it should be $19.99.

Those sets are really lackluster. I agree...you could make the Quidditch towers out of regular bricks and buy stickers...

I get that they're probably marketing them to a younger demo, but I wish they went with higher quality display sets instead of play oriented sets.
