Funko Kicks Off New 5 Star Collectible Series With Harry Potter
by Christine Marie Attardo
Over the past few years, Funko has dominated the collectible toy market. In fact, I believe that they’ve evolved it. Tons of people around the world stack boxes of Funko POP! Vinyls in their offices and living rooms and wait for the chance to grab the next exclusive. Now, Funko is taking things to the next level with a new series of enhanced POP! Vinyl type toys. They’re called 5 Star, and what better way to begin the series than with Harry Potter.
As you can see, they look a lot different from the POP! Vinyls that we are used to seeing. I think they are absolutely adorable. I love the detail and the bright eyes.
Here are some more details from Funko:
“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.”
In keeping with their “exclusive” promotions, Funko will release some extra special 5 Star! collectibles in partnership with Walmart. Take a look:
I’m definitely going to need to grab Dumbledore and Fawkes. I mean, come on?? How could you resist? The 5-Star line will release this Summer at a reasonable price point of $10 each.
