Funko announces new line with 5 Star Harry Potter vinyl figures!

Listen up Funko collectors, ‘cause it’s about to get real with the launch of the Funko 5 Star Harry Potter vinyls.

Funko, the pop culture enthusiasts who’ve taken characters from our favourite movies and shows and turned them into adorable figures – and some not-so-adorable – are kicking things up a notch with the 5 Star line. Granted, it sounds like an elite train service, but it’s not. The new line is said to be similar to the Pop Vinyls, except they’re more realistic-looking. Sounds promising, if a little creepy when you really think about it (who wants a realistic Pennywise Funko gawping at them from across the room?)

The series is set to launch later this year with a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! The first five figures you can pre-order now, with several more coming later in July at Walmart.

Funko is thrilled to dive deeper into the world of storytelling and pop culture with our latest line of collectible vinyl figures – 5 Star!

In addition to Funko’s usual attention to detail and characterization, the 5 Star line boasts several unique features including three points of articulation, allowing the figures to be posed, window display box packaging that mimics the opening of a book and situates each character in their unique world, and thoughtful accessories that further the character’s narrative.

Collectors with a passion for creatively displaying their figures can capitalize on the ability to use 5 Star figures’ different poses, incorporating the accessories and even the packaging to create a unique tableau or diorama that continues the narrative adventure.

The 5 Star line launches with the ever-magical Wizarding World with the beloved Harry Potter and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley with their Hogwarts mentors Albus Dumbledore and Rubeus Hagrid. Each figure is accompanied by an animal companion such as Hedwig the owl or by an iconic character-defining object such as Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letter or Hagrid’s pink umbrella.

The 5 Star line will expand with additional licenses later this year.
