Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrate it around the world!!!
Well I kind of liked this figures. They could do better, but as far as I have seen till now, these are the best ones. I have to admit,\ that all the previous ones where awful. I don’t understand though… Is it that difficult to make them look more like the actors?

Does anyone know how many points of articulation they have? As an avid toy collector and one of the biggest HP fans, I thought my ship had come in when NECA released their line. After buying a couple of the NECA figures, I found out to my dismay that I was gravely mistaken >_<

These things are NOT action figures! An action figure has at least 12 points of articulation and is not permanently attached to the base.

Which is fine for people who collect figurines, but we action figure collectors are always getting our hopes up and then being crushingly disappointed!

I wonder if this is worth purchasing.
I have the experience with the chessset by Deagostino, little copies of the chessset in the first movie, that it all looked very good in the pictures, but when i got the set it turned out very cheapy plastic.
I kept collecting it , because I had subscribed, but when it was completed it went into the basement and I never looked at it again. It wasn’t as expensive as the Noble Collection chessset, but compaired to quality itwas a waste of money. .

@ Witchard: they haven’t got any points of articulations. Plus, let me say that here in Italy those figurines are actually selled at the newspaper kiosks, not in shops..and the quality is usually very cheap (they use to make them look better in promotional images)..
Oh and @ Rachel who asked about Snape, yes they make his figurine too (they showed it in the tv promos)
