Harry Potter Magic Series
Okay, as I write this, everybody
is waiting for the first Harry Potter movie to hit the theatres. Now personally,
I am an avid reader. Usually, I read science fiction, fantasy and an occasional
non fiction book. Despite the recommendations of my friends, I have resisted
the temptation to pick up a Harry Potter book. Oh, I suppose I'll break
down eventually. But right now I have about eight books sitting in my bookcase
that I want to get around to reading before I go snagging any new books.
Okay, this bootleg toy series is called Harry Potter Magic Series. On the bottom of the card (not shown in the pic) it says "Mini Figurine With Story Scope". Well, I ran a search on Harry Potter and Story Scope. I figured out what that was about. But I couldn't find the original figures that these Harry Potter toys are based on. This bootleg toy series features six characters from Harry Potter. The only articulation that all the figures have is just at the arms and neck. Now, take a peek...
The first three figures are Harry Potter, somebody I can't ID and Ron Weasley
Harry stands 4.5"
tall and comes with an owl and a broom. The guy with no name stands
4.5" too. He comes with a book of spells the same owl Harry is packaged
with and a small staff. Ron Weasley, from foot to the top of his hat
stands 4.5" (anybody see a trend here?). Ron's accessories include a
mouse, small staff and a purple vase(?).
Next are Headmaster
Dumbledore, Hermione Granger and Rubeus Hagrid
The three figures
above all stand the same height. Anybody wanna guess how tall?
Headmaster Dumbledore's accessories include the owl, a small staff and
a book of spells. So is this owl like really prominent in the books?
Hermione Granger also comes with the owl. Also included with the owl
is the same vase (?) that Ron Wealey has and the same small staff. Last
but not least, Rubeus Hagrid. The big guy comes with that same vase.
Heck! Is it supposed to be a vase or what? and some kinda black bowling
ball with wings and a tail. I know, I know. It's not a bowling ball.
But the darn thing doesn't have any facial features at all. Okay,if
I read the darn books, I'd know the significance of the accessories.
But I haven't. So tough. You are just gonna have to get by with my lousy
