Those are a lot cooler than the other figurines that I’ve seen. They look a lot like the actors. Though Harry does have kind of tight pants, hmm. I like the look on Voldemort’s face.

That’s a decent looking back-pack…

Amy R.

As someone who’s boyfriend is a freelance sculptor who does a lot of scale figures, I can say with all confidence that these are yet more terrible figures in a very long line of terrible HP figures. If a sculpt looks bad when the image is only an inch tall, it says a lot about how awful it’s going to look when you get to see a more zoomed-in image. Yuck.

Actually, Amy R., I didn’t think they were that bad. (Although I don’t have any sculpting credentials.) Other HP figures that I’ve seen look much odder and inhuman to me.

OK, I probably would have chosen a Voldemort pose that doesn’t bear a constant danger of the Dark Lord swallowing flies. (Although then he could be the Lord of the Flies!)

Albus Silente? Interesting. Wonder how the Italian translators came up with that one.

I wondered about Albus Silente too – there didn’t seem to be any obvious connection to the original name, as there usually is – but according to Italian wikipedia it comes from the first part of the name – dumb (i.e. unable to speak) – which they translated as `silent’.

As JKR herself says – probably not the best translation, given that Dumbledore is anything but silent!

Voldie looks like he’s about to sneeze, Albus looks more like santa clause (no resemblance at all to Gambon), and Harry looks like the average IT guy who just stepped out of the disco with his tight leather pants lollllll.
not very good looking. At least Hagrid’s is bearable.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! To those of you who don’t celebrate it, I hope your Holidays were/are wonderful as well!

That’s very interesting, Ravenclawed — I didn’t know that about Albus Silente. Thanks for the information.

Hmmm. Dumbledore looks look a bit fat for my liking and what;s up with Harry’s leather Pants. The hermione one is nice though…
