Mad-Eye Moody is very, very much like Brendan. :D Aww, Richard Harris looks perfect.

I like how they’re not missing the opportunity of having a Harris Dumbledore! That’s pretty funny. I never liked him in the role, incidentally. It was WAY too generic greybeard old miser to me. He never felt like a real character. Gambon is better because he plays it naturally, but he’ s still not the right choice. He’s not good at doing the parts where DD needs to show warmth. I can’t see him doing his Deathly Hallows parts well.

Thank you NECA for the Richard Harris sculpt. It’s truly just as good as Gentle Giant’s McG bust!

The Tonner Dolls’ hair is outrageous, I lol’ed at Snape’s doll… It definitely needs more grease

I can’t WAIT to add those new 5 to my collection! I am so happy they made a Richard Harris Dumbledore. He was BY FAR the better choice as a Dumbledore in the movies. I still miss him in the role. Gambon isn’t right as Dumbledore. Harris needs to come back to life!

Does anyone know how large the Dumbledore figure is to be?

Avatar Image says:

AS much as I liked Richard Harris as Dumbledore this action figure doesn’t make me happy at all, it is hideous. I really don’t know if the figures are hideous or the photo tken are that bad, Could be the photo because i have a Snape in that pose, but his jacket isn’t blue but black in the figure I bought.

Kamion, I agree that picture was bad, but they have better ones!

i want Dobby! _ ha dobby kicks ass =]

Avatar Image says:

thanks Patrick, those pictures are better.the robes are splendid, but there is something in the beard and hair that ticks me off. Nevertheless I’ll will never see those in a shop in Amsterdam and the transport costs of these things are murderous when bought at the net.

The Tonner dolls look alright, but I agree with the comment about Snape’s hair. Another thing that’s kind of bothering me is that both Cho and Draco have nicer fabric lining their robes than the Gryffindor robes do.. what’s up with that? Dobby looks cute as always!
