It has been an incredible few weeks for McFarlane as the company proudly unveiled its first line of Harry Potter action figures and revealed their plans for 2019 and beyond at the New York Toy Fair. Upon acquiring the rights to one of the most successful and sought after licenses in the toy business, McFarlane has complete access to the entire vault of Harry Potter and the Wizarding World characters and creatures, which also include the Fantastic Beasts movie franchise.

The first wave of figures, arriving this July, will include Harry, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, in their Deathly Hallows attire, along with the Dark Lord himself, Voldemort. All the of the figures are fully articulated, highly detailed and come with their respective magic wands. As an added bonus, each figure will also include a translucent Patronus animal, assigned to each wizard to defend against the dark arts: Harry (stag), Ron (Jack Russell terrier) and Hermione (otter). For those of you who are fans of “he who must not be named,” Voldemort’s figure will include his loyal serpentine horcrux, Nagini. Each figure is scaled to six inches in height and will be priced at $25.00.

The first wave will also feature everyone’s favorite hippogriff, Buckbeak, who, although is not to scale with the other figures in the wave, still looks majestic with his outspread wings flying through the air.

For those of you wondering how long it will take for the company to add more figures to the toy line, fear not. The second wave will arrive in stores this October and will once again feature the trio of wizards (Harry, Ron and Hermione), this time in their Chamber of Secrets garb along with the professor of the dark arts and potions, Severus Snape.

The second wave will also contain a beautifully sculpted, yet, horrifyingly frightening Dementor, whose dark covered cloak and rotting grey skin should send chills down the spine of all those who collect these guards of Azkaban.

Future plans for the toy line include a wave of four unique creatures, featuring the skeletal-winged Threstral, a werewolf (Lupin, no doubt) and two types of dragons... a Ukrainian Ironbelly and a Hungarian Horntail, to be released sometime in 2020, pending approval.
