    So I say "possible" and everyone just blows over it, but OI says the same thing a day later but doesn't put "possible" in the title and now its confirmed? OMG were never going to get a Universal Media invite… Who knew a fan site could confirm others information? I wonder if they could confirm the correct name for Scene 7 as the previous article was incorrect.

    Hmmm... It's very interesting to go back and look at the photo mock-up someone (I've forgotten - I'm sorry!) did of the London facades and compare them to what's there now, as they appear to be very accurate, with the exception of some details that have been added on to the buildings. Lovely how far back we can say that we knew certain things and where they were going. Much more interested in hearing the hows of everything, and as Teebin has mentioned numerous times, the surprises in store for this expansion. Very exciting to see the scaffolding down

    HtF - I think that certain authors have remained extremely arrogant; it's a reflection on them...

    To be fair, nowhere in OI's article is the word "confirmed" used. As a matter of fact, it only shows up at the end of their write up:

    "DISCLAIMER FROM THE EDITOR
    Please remember when viewing this post that a rumor is a piece of unverified information of uncertain origin; a statement whose veracity is not quickly or ever confirmed. So even though we try our best to present solid speculation, there’s no way to guarantee any rumor will come true (then it wouldn’t be a rumor anyway).

    Thanks to Marc for researching the latest rumor buzz from sources across the Internet and condensing it down into a single post for us each and every week!"

    Too funny, when I read this a second time, I read it as if a big black woman wrote it... and then put the big *snap* at the end. Then I read it a third time and read it as a skinny guy in full drag in a bar and yet again, put a big *snap* at the end.

    Try it yourself or merely imagine it, it will make you giggle.

    HTF in drag - that does not sound like a pretty picture!

    This apothecary thing could work out as a store if they made it like the different stuff you would normally buy in an apothecary, but make it candy or something. Just theme the packaging.

    The hopping pot sounds like:

    A: A bathroom
    B: A fondue place.

    Dont read too much into that

    I speculated on what the Fountain of Fair Fortune could be a few months ago. I can't find it on the board (someone might tho). Believe that numerous people speculated it might be a walk up drink counter?

    Can you confirm that for me HTF? Or pass it along to OI if that's too much trouble.

    That would be me and I just so happen to have it for comparison sake. It's funny to me just how accurate it actually was.

    Yeah, my best guess would be a soda fountain to pair with the ice cream parlor. And it makes perfect sense that a wizarding shop owner would name their place after a popular folk tale.

    Also, OI posted this "extended look" and the newly de-scaffoldified facades. It's got some pretty good zoom shots in there for Teebin.

    Is that place in the middle supposed to be The Leaky Cauldron? It now occurs to me that it's strangely absent from the London facade; I figured it'd be a shoe-in.

    I just hope after the crane comes down that Universal puts some big trees up to block the view of the Gringotts show building. Seeing it in the shot ruins the illusion. Seeing it in person is way more of a nuisance.
    7DMT actually didn't really start in earnest until around when Potter was announced. You have to remember it was announced separate from the original FLE plans a year and a half later in January 2011.

    I think the facade looks really good. Why Leicester square? What connection to harry potter is there? Has anything every been confirmed? Called it be Russell square after all? I mean it looks more like it and it's actually the next stop after kings cross on the Piccadilly line. Is the London facade a journey along the Piccadilly line?
