We have several updates today regarding some books and merchandise from Harry Potter series.

First UK publishers Bloomsbury have announced that a special new box set of all seven of the Harry Potter books in paperback will be available in October. With a label reading “The Complete Harry Potter Collection,” The Bookseller.com reports this set will feature new artwork and will be “the ultimate gift” with a retail price of £59.99. As we reported previously the UK paperback of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released on July 5, and is now available for pre-order in our Cauldron Shop. There is still no word on the release date of the US edition of “Deathly Hallows” from Scholastic, and we will update with more on that when we can.

While news on new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince merchandise is still slow in coming, we can report that the wall calendar from the movie will be released on September 1st, and is now available for pre-order in our Cauldron Shop.

Speaking of the shop, we have some updates about items now back in stock and on sale. First, Warner Brothers has lowered the price of the popular Dumbledore’s Army messenger bag which is now back in stock; to order click here. Also back in stock are the Honeydukes tin can set, and new are the Noble Collection Harry Potter Broom Pen, as well as the Luna Lovegood Jewelry Set designed by actress Evanna Lynch who portrays the eccentric Ravenclaw student in the Harry Potter films. One last item now back in stock is the Radica Harry Potter 20 questions electronic game.

Finally, as Warner Brothers has announced they will no longer be making and selling their movies in the HD-DVD format in the future (still will be available in Blu-Ray), the company has reduced the prices on the special collectors box set of all five of the Harry Potter DVDs, that comes in the Hogwarts trunk case and contains those extra bookmarks and trading cards; this can be found here in our shop.

I wonder if Evanna gets any compensation for the jewelry set as she designed them?

The news seems to have really picked up in the last month, cause in janurary and december it was hitting an all-time low.

Ordered my calander. Can’t wait for the HBP movie! But what is this stuff with the blue-ray. Cripes! I just figured out how to use my DVD player.

Avatar Image says:

Cool, wall calendar, that is neat- with photos and stuff from the film they mean? yes news has picked up finally!

Avatar Image says:

Ach! Why does there have to be new artwork? I just bought the complete UK set in hardcover, and now there’s new artwork?! Just my luck… Although these new ones are in paperback, so I might be able to scrounge some money together and see if the set’s on sale at Waterstones.com. I might have to get the 20Q game, too.

Why does there have to be so many cool HP products?! I want them, but they’re so expensive! Argh!

Avatar Image says:

ooh…I wonder if I’ll have to go for that “Ultimate” set…As nice as it is, I say my never-going-to-be-opened set of hardcovers is better. Those HD sets are going to be worth loads in the future I bet. Maybe I should buy that instead.

That’s a fair bit of money for 7 paperbacks.

Avatar Image says:

I would like to get all the stuff, but I like my current copies. Some day i will buy a complete set, but not now.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, the complete set. I have them in hardback, but I can’t say no to more HP! Plus there’s new artwork, I hope I can get them.

Avatar Image says:

What happens to those of us who do not have Blue Ray and can’t afford to buy new technology? This is grossly unfair who are not able to buy future movies in this new format.

Avatar Image says:

I dont think I’l be buying these. It seems like a lot of money for paperbacks and in my opinion the writing inside is far more important then the artwork, and that never changes much right?

Avatar Image says:

Spook – you do realize the article talks about HD-DVD, not regular DVDs, right? You’ll still be able to buy the movies on regular DVDs as that’s still the most common format.

Now if you bought into HD-DVD (also a “new technology”) before it was decided which of the two new formats would win, that’s a risk you should have known :(

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Is it me not seeing this, or is the new special edition set not in the Cauldron Shop? I checked, and there is nothing about this specific Harry Potter set in there.

If it is, can someone give me the URL to where it is? I must be blind as a bat here! Also, can I buy it in the US? Where is it going to be sold from, amazon.co.uk? Thanks!
