Bumping up an older thread here, but I was just looking for some advice on Harry Potter figures. Our daughter has really gotten into HP over the past six months or so, and of course it is a little late for the "hype" so there isn't a whole lot out there as far as merchandise (at least at retail). Anyways, I've been looking over some of the toy lines to see if there is anything I can pick her up online or via ebay. Obviously, the Cards Inc./Popco line from overseas is pretty nice, but looks to be quite pricey for those of us in the states (although I do have a Hermione on the way for her, since she is her favorite). She also loves the LEGOs, and thanks to some help from efranks I was able to get the Hagrid's Hut set, but the rest of them are long gone from here and like most LEGOs quite pricey online.
I know that Mattel put out some simpler stuff for the first movie (or two?), but wasn't sure how those were as toys. I was just starting to look at them online a bit. NECA also has some nice stuff, but those seem more statue-like for the most part. Also, while searching ebay I found this and was wondering what it was from:http://www.ebay.com/itm/290899759472?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
I had noticed a couple other sets like this as well on ebay, and they seem to be Polly Pocket-like in size possibly. They seem to be smaller (one shot had a comparison with a dollar bill) anyway. Anyways, does anyone have any experience with any of the lines to give me some extra info? Thanks in advance.
I always thought it was a shame that this movie series didn't have a really good action figure line to go along with it. With all the movies, characters, settings, creatures, etc., it seems like it really could have been a Star Wars-like line while the movies/books were having their run.
