Harry Potter’s epic, seven book story defined a generation – my generation. We stayed up all night to read his latest escapades. We waited for hours in line to see the films when they came out at midnight. We wore pointy hats, colorful ties, and graduation-robes-turned-wizarding-robes to masquerade as our favorite characters from J.K. Rowling’s legendary saga.
Now it’s Funko’s turn to make their mark on this beloved franchise with their Harry Potter Pop! Vinyls. These Pop! Vinyls will take you back to witches and wizards and magical beasts, and to goblins and ghosts and magical feasts!
If your Pop! collection is missing its Golden Trio, look no farther than the Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger figures. Each wears their Gryffindor uniform and Hogwarts robes. Harry wears his glasses and sports his lightning bolt scar. Ron’s pale skin compliments his ginger hair and his wand is Spellotaped back together. Hermione’s bushy hair is highlighted and textured and she wears her skirt and socks. Her face is set and determined – the smartest witch of her year.
Hagrid, the half-giant, stands as a super-sized 6- inch Pop! Vinyl, wearing his moleskin coat and carrying his signature pink umbrella (beware the tip – there’s definitely a broken wand in there!).
Some beloved but dubious characters also join the line. Regardless of your opinions on Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape, they join the Pop! family as 3 3/4-inch figures. Dumbledore wears his half-moon spectacles, colorful robes and hat, and his long white beard. Snape wears his traditional robes, greasy hair, and holds his wand at the ready. Is it just me, or does his Pop! nose seemed even more hooked than the rest of them?
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, seeking the demise of the Boy Who Lived, stands 3 3/4-inches tall with white-grey skin. He holds his bone wand in one hand, while waving the other as if to ask when he will arise in power again. Don’t worry, Voldemort still missing a nose.
