I’m down for more Hogwarts Express at 33% off. Great part out for those that do BL.

Engine, carriage and figures all sell well separately and the platform has some great fast moving parts.

Shame there’s no TCB or QC. Maybe i’m asking for too much 😅

Price matched on Amazon.

Any opinions on when end of life will be for this set? According to Brickset it was released in September 2018, so it's relatively new, and I'm assuming that anything Harry Potter related will stick around for years?

Can never tell. I don’t think the new movie did as well as they were hoping and I’ve not heard anything about another wave of sets. Maybe I’ve missed something there, theres a lot of source material for it to be a one and done.

Amazon best sellers for the larger sets despite low discounts suggests they will have a long life.

More bad news for Business Sellers.

... and Instore at the other end of the country?

Yes Ebad like Sah dont have a clue,top executive people too far from the coalface making too many erroneous decisions.

Reminds me of my time in customer facing roles in some large retail companies.One for instance with a very large car company who brought out a new computer system

which was inferior in all respects to the previous one at a colossal cost, all because the innovation team had to be seen innovating.

@Rog - I get the impression that the Fantastic Beast sets haven't sold well, so I'd be surprised if there's any more planned.  Bricklink tends to be a reliable barometer (especially in terms of minifigure sales) and I'm glad that I've avoided them.  Assuming the original rumours are correct, all 5 of the new wave are based on the original films so LEGO seem to be playing it safe. 

My guess is that 75951 & 75952 will be discontinued before 1st June; and 75953 - 56 will stick around for a while (especially 53-54 which should be compatible with the new Watchtower set).  That said, I also grabbed a couple of the trains today; it's such a beautiful set!  I don't doubt it's been massively hoarded, but it's got a decent array of parts so I can always split them in my store if it flatlines after EOL.

I even avoided 75951 at £6.67. I thought the movie was dire and just couldn't get into it, nearly as bad as The Last Jedi. Just like Douglas Adams, Joanne Rowling should stick to what she's good at. No HP, no buy.

I would have grabbed a few at that price just to part-out in my Bricklink Store!

The Thestral could be (relatively) sought after, provided that it doesn't make appearances in the next wave(s) of sets - I can see it making £15+ within a couple of years.

But, I totally agree the FB sets themselves are best avoided for a standard investment - there's far better options.

If you're passing through GU14, I can get hold of some 75951 for £10 each if you're interested.

They have been £8 in asda for over a week.

£19.97 in Farnborough, Lower Earley & Tilehurst. Please state location to help others even though I'd leave them alone at any price. I doubt they'll even recover fees, box and postage.

John Lewis online: Aston Martin 10262 reduced to £109.99, plus a free 31094 Creator Race Plane:

https://www.johnlewis.com/lego-james-bond-aston-martin-and-lego-race-plane-bundle/p238103120

Thanks. JLP's bundles are good value however, I think that the DB5, since it's so butt ugly, isn't selling too well and there could be bigger discounts down the line. As for the Race Plane, I don't foresee any demand for it, unless it's way under RRP 😉

For those that remember the Hamleys Bricktober offer of a couple of months ago..

They are giving them away as a freebie in store (with purchases over £40 of lego) its not really advertised very well (there was a couple of vague signs amongst the lego)

Dont know if its national, but this was in cardiff yesterday
