We’re already knee-dip into the festive season. And, of course, a quarter into buying the 2018 Christmas presents. Instead of going with the usual calendars all the way into the 24 days of Christmas, how about something different and worth your time and attention? After all, it’s not all of us who are fans of chocolate calendars or cheese advent calendars. Thankfully, Funko, the brand behind those little pop figurines we love so much, is coming to the big league.
The 2018 Christmas season will also cater to lovers of unconventional fun. Needless to point out, this is the first time we get a Hogwarts advent calendar. Instead of physically going to the train station and painstakingly timing for platform nine and three quarters, you have the leisure of spreading the school of wizardry right in your warm living room.
Out with the old, in with the new
In place of chocolate, cheese, and Disney advent calendars, get something different. Buy what you and your family will love. Heck, even your children will get involved. The eating of chocolate all those days leading to Christmas is so yesterday. After all, it’s what you did with your parents. Before chocolate and cheese advent calendars, the Christmas norm used to be cookies leading to Christmas. Of course, that tradition has weaned off. And just like the ones before, the new advent calendars will dethrone it. Choose the Harry Potter advent calendar to involve all family members.
The Harry Potter advent calendar is in every way possible similar to Lego’s Christmas offerings. Once you get your calendar, the next step is to turn it into a snowy Hogwarts scene while enjoying playing with the figures. Depending on your mood, state of mind and preference, you can then gradually build up Hogwarts, one character, scene, and creature at a time.
Funko is the brains and creative process behind this Hogwarts Christmas advent calendar. The very first thing to be noticed will be the characters’ distinct Pop design, which cannot be mistaken anywhere. Just like the countless comic book figurines before the Harry Potter ones, the figurines will resemble setup from Star Wars, Marvel Pictures, and even Stranger Things. Also, just as unique as the other character designs are, so will be the ones in the Harry Potter advent calendar.
Pricing and Release date
Although there is no price tag attached to this fantasy pack at the moment, it will soon be revealed and made available for retail. International shoppers, of course, have the option of pre-ordering or buying it via a service provider that will also forward your Christmas purchases to the final destination.
Hogwarts’ first-ever fantasy advent calendar doesn’t have a date of release at present. As a matter of fact, this 24 pocket-sized figurine collection hasn’t had many details revealed yet. Only the basics, such as:
Your favourite and even worst characters will be featured in the collection. The advent calendar will have the likes of Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron, and other famous witches, wizards, ghosts, house elves and beasts.
The entire calendar has 24 pocket-sized figures—perfect to help count down to Christmas Day 2018.
Although not accompanied by a comfy mug of Butterbeer, the calendar brings enough entertainment to get the whole family involved and possibly gain new fans for the Harry Potter franchise.
To stay updated as the days keep approaching Christmas, you can do so by downloading Funko’s mobile app which supports both iOS and Android.
