I’m in love already! Not only are they HP (my favorite fandom), they remind me of cosbaby toys that I’ve always wanted but never got!

Love the idea of the old vhs box!

Wow! This has been a big week with Funko Harry Potter! I love the look and design of these and the packaging is really nice as well. Definitely will be adding these to my collection. It is odd that Walmart got all 5 for exclusives. I would have thought they would be spread around to B&N, Target or Hot Topic. Which is odd as with all the announcements this week the only Hot Topic items have been the 3 Exclusive Mystery Minis. Thank god july is my birthday month so I can use the birthday money to get all of the Harry Potter Funko items coming!

Break easily? I don't think you're playing with them correctly.

Lol, I mean sometimes if you try to bend their joints if they are poorly made they just break off. lol lol

I will definitely need to pick him up with the cake to add him to my HP collection. I really like the look of these.

I will hold judgement until I see them in person and then maybe I won't think they're overblown mystery minis with just a tad more detail :) :) Would love to see some in person tho!

I hope the box has a flap that opens or something. Find it odd that the face shows, maybe the back shows what the figure looks like.
I'm curious, I can't wait to see what other licenses they'll add

I’ve tried to avoid things that aren’t in my normal lines of collecting, but these look awesome.

Since my daughter devoured the books and is a huge fan, I have a feeling I will have to get these

These are neat, I am not a huge Harry Potter fan,but this was good insight on the line. If they do Power Rangers or Horror icons, I'd be first in line to buy them.

I think the figures look great! I can't wait until Summer to see how the joints move and the articulation feels!! Very excited to have Funko move into this direction and the figures still be so affordable!


I love that packaging. Very original, very Potter like! Get out the wallets!

I really like the new look of this new line. I'm gonna get this set for my girlfriend. I really like the attention to detail of the accessories. If this line takes off, goodbye wallet.

I think they are cute and they come with accessories too! I hadn't realized how small they were though, but that's good news. I can make space for a bunch of these versus big pops.

Unboxing. They are little. They look to be bigger than MMs but smaller than Dorbz. How cute. I have a weakness for tiny things.

I also definitely like the concept of this new line. The accessories are a nice touch. I really like Hagrid with the "Happy Birthday Harry" cake. Too cute. I wonder how tall they are too? 3.75 in?

Yeah I just came to ask if anyone knows why these are called 5 Star. It doesn't seem like a catchy name.

So glad I don't collect HP lol. Still, this is a fabulous new line. Love the detail and unique packaging and all the little accessories. I'm sure when a line I do collect is released in this style (I think someone already mentioned NBC), I'll be all over it. Looking forward to seeing it all in person.

Hopefully the Aquaman movie will be represented in this line, as well as Star Wars (wishful thinking). I wouldn't mind seeing Lord of the Rings 5 Star as well...

magicalme wrote:While I love Harry Potter and love Funko - I’m not sure on this line. I will have to see them in person and in all honesty am hoping I don’t like them as I spend entirely too much as it is. I would have like to see Hermione with Crookshanks though and Hagrid with Fang. They look cute but will wait to see them when they come out. I do like the packaging storybook idea.


Same, I'm on the fence. One, don't have the space, and two, don't know if I absolutely love them like I do the Pops and Rock Candys. I admit they are really cute, and when I see them in person I'll probably talk myself into them just because its Harry Potter. lol.
