Harry Potter CMF series are now in Coles for $5.50....

I grabbed a half dozen and thankfully got no doubles but with 22 to collect and so many difficult to feel for pieces itís going to be tough to get them all, on top of the fact that theyíll fly off the shelves.

Found a unmolested box at Target today. Was only trying to get a couple as Iím not interested in the theme but liked them for parts. 20 minutes later, I had 10 in my hand. Very hard to feel for this series.

It's to only set I really wanted from the line, although the Quidditch and Hall sets may have tempted me at a Big W or Kmart price.

$140 seems ridiculous when compared to the US$ price and it'd mean the purchase of another set to make it worthwhile from the Lego online store, their prices are the worst and their shipping excessive, so it's only worth it if you spend $200.
I was told today at Toyworld Success in Perth that Toyworld is now going to have the HP trainset since TRU is now closed but he doesnt know when that will be available.

Last mention I heard was November. The few hobby stores I have seen mention it already have already presold out their allocation at the same price as the LEGO shop.

After 13 figures I finally got my first double, and itís dobby....

Iíve been pretty lucky, Iíve only had the misfortune of getting the bland main female lead and the boring bowl cut pseudo villain from the fantastic beasts sub theme.

If I could get a dumbledore and a pyjama Harry Iíd be happily done with this series. Never had better luck. The last cmf series I bought 12 figures (never saw them again) and only got 5 unique figures from them!

Going to be sad to see Pyjama Harry's invisibility cloak get damaged from all the people feeling for Percival Graves.

No luck with the 3 Coles around Parramatta so far. Was hoping to grab a bunch before their Little Shop promo runs out. My partner has been crazy about them, and they sell as much or more than Lego CMFs. Can't believe this tiny Nutella sold for $50! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Coles-Li...LH_TitleDesc=0
