YAY! HBP product love! But honestly, it’d be nice if they one day branch out and do Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw stuff too.

Avatar Image says:

Good. I hope this means that the trailer will be released soon – if they are planning promotional material

Avatar Image says:

Scarlett: I agree with you… we took a personality quiz – I am a Hufflepuff and my husband is a Ravenclaw. We would definately buy those products. Jess: I’m right with you. Everytime I go to Leaky’s page I am hoping to see the trailer. One of these days when we least expect it, I’m sure!

Avatar Image says:

Is anyone planning to make a “My Sweetheart” necklace?

Avatar Image says:

I agree Scarlett “Ravenclaw” and “Hufflepuff” are sadly neglected in regard to “fan produce”. Us Ravenclaws and hufflepuffs play a part too.

Avatar Image says:

Maybe the film focuses more on the Gryffindore/Slytherin rivalry? And that’s why they only produced those two bags???

Avatar Image says:

Don’t worrry, this crap will be at a discont price by the end of the year!

Avatar Image says:

do you reckon they’ll actually do the “my sweetheart” necklace scene? is that for Ron’s birthday or Christmas i don’t remember…

hope they make new posters soon too!

Avatar Image says:

The reason why the trailer is not out yet is because they havnt finished editing and doing CGI’s, Robbie Coltrane said yesterday in the interview on Jonathon Ross. Can’t wait till they have finished!!

Avatar Image says:

Christmas

Avatar Image says:

Yepp, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff stuff missing. I am a Gryffindor, but I don’t think it’s fair. I mean, come on, what would Hogwarts be with only Gryffindor and Slytherin??? And the Quidditch Cup would be soooooooooooo boring!

As for the trailer, I’m a bit scared to see it o.Ô….

Avatar Image says:

I’m a Ravenclaw, and yeah, there’s hardly ever anything of Ravenclaw of Hufflepuff.

Avatar Image says:

NO WAY – it is actually an official WB statement about HBP xD

But I agree with everyone – Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw almost always get missed out =( Either that or they get the colours wrong…. coughALIVANScough

Avatar Image says:

Awesome. But I’m still trailer hungry! Come on WB

Avatar Image says:

Scarlett: I completely agree. We Hufflepuffs are very neglected. But I’m really excited about the new merchandise. I usually buy most of Hot Topic every time a new movie comes out. Got to start saving some money ;)

Avatar Image says:

Any Ravenclaw tote bags??? They always focus on Gryffindor and Slytherin. Hufflpuff and Ravenclaw are just as important!!!! Ravenclaw is the best acually. =D

Avatar Image says:

Grr. I need some hufflepuff merch =[ But this is still really cool!

Avatar Image says:

Oh who cares about the merchandise … Leaky finally got a HBP counter! Woot!

Sorry … back to teh topic, carry on.

Avatar Image says:

OMG! I know Kezzabear! They got an HBP counter! WOO! They had one in the middle of last week or something, (or maybe it was two weeks ago?) I checked during school & started shouting it out to my class & told them they were all jealous that they didn’t have counters! Muahaha. (: & then I went home and it wasn’t there anymore. :(

oops, off topic also, but I had to share that story…. :D

Avatar Image says:

We poor Ravenclaws are sadly neglected! As are all you Hufflepuffs! Come on people! Show us some love!

Avatar Image says:

wow. some actual WB news. shocker shocker.

Anyway, yay!!!

Avatar Image says:

Thank you kitkat. Once again you wise words sniping at HP. I’m just not going to say any other thing about the comment

Avatar Image says:

SWEET!!! I really need a gryffindor tote bag!!That is one thing I am lacking. I have the shirts and the wands and the scene it and the time turner and the 30 questions and so on. Oh and I hope hot Topic puts out some new shirts!!!They had a ton for OOTP!!!!

Luv-Lily Potter

Avatar Image says:

The clothing seems to get cuter every film so hopefully the stuff for HBP will at least be as good as the clothes from OOTP. I certainly love my Gryffindor hooded blazer, hoodie, and football-style tee that I got at Hot Topic last summer. In fact I’m sure I’ll probably be wearing the blazer and tshirt to see HBP unless something from the new merchandise can beat them, and that blazer is tough to beat. I do agree that Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff stuff is almost non-existent, which is disappointing, but maybe there will be more for HBP than there has been in past films. And shame on you Leaky, when I saw the words “Warner Bros Announces” I almost fell off my chair in shock thinking it was going to be something about the trailer lol. I have got to stop getting my hopes up, but I am going crazy with HP withdrawls .

Avatar Image says:

I’m really hoping for some Ravenclaw stuff, too… it depresses me when I see a stand of Harry Potter clothing and all that are there are Gryffindor and Slytherin t-shirts. D:

Avatar Image says:

As a Ravenclaw I can’t stand having to always buy Slytherin stuff then explain I’m actually a Ravenclaw… annoying! I mean there is FOUR houses not two. Us poor Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs. Neglected.

On the plus side FINALLY news about HBP from WB!

Avatar Image says:

I agree, what’s with only having products for Gryffindor and Slytherin? All FOUR houses are excellent. But I’m still excited.

Avatar Image says:

selemement je veux vous questionner:pourquoi on trouve pas le livre de la dernier sesion de ‘HARRER POTTER’??

Avatar Image says:

I hope lego does some sets from the movie too

Avatar Image says:

Go Ravenclaw!

Avatar Image says:

I totally forgot about the Lego sets until you mentioned them Chris! I’ve always loved the Lego sets (guilty pleasure) and I was sooo disappointed when OOTP came out and the only set they made was of Hogwarts and it really wasn’t that different from the older sets of the castle except that it had Umbridge and thestrals. I really hope they do better this year and give us more sets and something more than just the castle again, like maybe the cave or something?

Avatar Image says:

What about Legos? No new Lego sets?

Avatar Image says:

I just wanna buy Ron, lol! But they look so cool! <3 Can't wait until they come out!

Love the HBP counter, btw!

Avatar Image says:

Are there no legos for this film? If so, I will be deeply dissapointed and spend several weeks crying violently in my bedroom.

Avatar Image says:

cool..but wht abt the trailer?

Avatar Image says:

OMG! I love those Gryffindor bags. They r so cute. I agree with u guys they should have some Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff items. Oh well. At least they have my house stuff on there. GRYFFINDOR! WTVR. Awesome chess and new Scene It etc.

Avatar Image says:

I am and im here to support “NotTheHBP”, on his/her views that OOPT is the worst Harry Potter film to date and David Yates is a horrible director. yates isn’t as expericend to helm the last two films that are or such great proportion. He’s done a whole lot of tv movies and a couple of ok flop films; i just don’t uderstand why they would pick him to helm the last and most important and i my opinion best book of the harry potter series. WB could have chosen one of the more experienced directors, from the other films to have ago. Hell i would even have prefered Columbus to come back, rather then yates. now thats desperate. so thank you “NotTheHBP” for making your opnion open.

Avatar Image says:

Its me the real Ed Tom, and may i just say know how happy i am for all the suport i am getting. Thank you ” goldfish” for you kind words of support and i too believe HBP prince will over take OOPT in the Worst Harry Potter film mark. Only together, do we remain strong. Band with me my brothers and sisters there is still hope. yates can still be overthrown. we have the power the power that only america can supply. Remakes.

You said it ‘bella vita”: “I was sooo disappointed when OOTP came out and the only set they made was of Hogwarts and it really wasn’t that different from the older sets of the castle except that it had Umbridge and thestrals.”

This is proof that aids to the fact that the harry poter movies and franchies is meeting its ugly end. The books and film were on equal levels in both popularity and success in there own mediums, but everything changed with the release of OOTP film. The books by far are now better and surpass the films thanks to OOPT’s failure. The magic was lost with OOTP, why David Yates, why?

So know i ask of you, join me so we may bring back the magic. Help me change the minds of WB so that they once and for all do away with Yates. If we don’t he will destroy us all. Like that predicable over used line Hagrid said in OOPT ” storms coming Harry”, yates is on the move and now is the time to fight.

So i leave you with these last few words storms coming are you sure you are on the side.

yahhies i cant wait to see what they bring out :)

Avatar Image says:

Hey! There’s a new pic of Slughorn over at Snitchseeker! Leaky, is it official or leaked? XxX

Avatar Image says:

Never mind. It’s a fake.:-(

Avatar Image says:

Ginbrod93, I think you’re talking about the Slughorn party guest…. ?

Avatar Image says:

Any word on Lego sets? After the release of Lego Indiana Jones and the upcoming Lego Batman I’m REALLY hoping to see a Lego Harry Potter game in the future, and knowing that they’re continuing the line for the last two movies would be a step in the right direction.

Avatar Image says:

Thats awesome ! Although like most im still trailer hungry ! Come on WB !! Trailer please :D

Avatar Image says:

@KanedaX: is there any LEGO stuff out there still? Here in Germany it is very hard to get by that stuff, only on ebay or so. It is not in stores anymore (for quite some time now) My sons is almost 6 years now an da blooming HP fan (thanks to me!) and I would to love getting him some of that.

As to the other stuff, I do not like most of it. Some is really cheaply done. But I will check the things out at least…. I, being Slytherin myself, do unterstand the Huffs and Ravens anger over the Gryff anf Slyth dominace thoug. It is not really fair and coming down to money bussiness, they could make a lot more money

Avatar Image says:

I’m not too into the merchandising but one thing I would definitely get and I’m once again disappointed to not see is a Tarot deck.

Avatar Image says:

Everybody should go to these company’s websites, find their suggestion forms and suggest Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw items be included in their Potter merchandise lines. If they get enough emails they might decide there is demand for them and start stocking them.

Avatar Image says:

I am excited to buy a gryffindor tote bag! Yay!! And the trailor too…. I soooo can’t wait for that….

Avatar Image says:

I hope Tonner makes a Luna doll!!

Avatar Image says:

Don’t you know this cinereplicas brand (www.cinereplicas.co.uk) they have great stuff too! Somebody ever bought there?

Avatar Image says:

Freakin’...really? We already have products, but no photos? No trailer? Ugh, so EFFED up!
