The NECA website has been updated with new photos from their upcoming line of 2008 Harry Potter collectible toys and action figures we first brought you back in February. Set for release in July, this new set will feature a number of new pieces along with a special Second Year edition containing new figures of Harry, Fawkes, and the Richard Harris version of Albus Dumbledore. You can view an image of this set of three together via our Image Galleries. As we stated previously, NECA, the North American license holders for Harry Potter products, will release these “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” series of action figures in the coming months. We will continue to update as this product comes available in our own Cauldron Shop, which currently has a wide array of action figures in stock.

They’re so nice! If only I had the money…

I really loved Richard Harris as Albus Dumbledore…. He was perfect.*

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Ava. Richard Harris acts more like what I thought Dumbledore would behave like(compared to Michael Gambon). I miss him, but Michael Gambon still is a good actor, even though he seems a little more stiff. These figures look very detailed too!

Avatar Image says:

honestly, im not a big fan of either dumbledores. i think richard harris was a little too weak and kind and mysterious. the real dumbledore is all that, but he also has humor! in GoF bambon did shaken baby syndrome on harry. stupid vive xe

Avatar Image says:

I really don’t think Richard Harris ever got to show the diversity of his acting in the role of Dumbledore because through no fault of his own left the part too early. I think had we been able to see him do his stuff in, say, OOP against Volde, he would have lived up to the character’s diversity very nicely (as he did in most of the roles he played).

Michael Gambon is a very good actor but is miscast in the role of Albus and the fact that he came on board when Cauron had taken the helm and the misguided Cauron decided to dress him as a hippie (and so he will stay for the rest of the series apparently) also works against the movies’ current interpretation of Dumbledore.

Avatar Image says:

I know, Gambon was horrible. But he looks less hippie-ish in six, I saw a horrible-quality trailer from my bootlegger friend. I couldn’t decipher what they were saying, it was blurred. All I can tell for sure is what the music is. It’s “Titans” by X-Ray Dog.

Chamber of Secrets, right next to Sorcerer’s Stone, is still my favorite of the movies. They’ve been going drastically down hill since CoS in my opinion.

Avatar Image says:

Thanks Ethan. I picture Richard Harris when I read the ‘Harry Potter’ books, I even hear his voice in my head… He was magnificent as Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore. He’ll be remembered for his last role…

Avatar Image says:

Mark: I agree. ‘Sorcerer’s Stone’ & ‘Chamber Of Secrets’ were the best, & they DO seem to be going down hill, which is a shame… ‘Prisoner Of Azkaban’ Is my favorite book, & I feel like they completely changed the story in the movie, I didn’t like it at all! Why? You ask: FIREBOLT! In ‘Goblet Of Fire’ I felt like it lacked, all the little things, like Veelas & Ludo Bagman. & In ‘Order Of The Phoenix’ all I liked was the visual effects, for instance: The hall of prophecy’s. Well, that’s my movie run-down for ya! Ha ha!

Avatar Image says:

Pff. Purists. :P

Cuaron was the best thing to happen to the movie series. Gambon was a pefrectly good Dumbledore in PoA, and he faltered slightly for whatever reason in GoF.

Avatar Image says:

Ava: i agree with u saying that Ss and CoS were the best movies cause there the only ones that followed the book but i think that Gof was pretty good and the special affects of Oop were good too. but i hated that movie mostly cause it had almost nothing to do with the book.but as for the 2 dumbledores i think that gambon is better, because richard harris was so old and deadish. he was like too old for the part. Even thaugh i i imagened dumbledore being old when i read the books i think that gambon fits the part better. but i agree with the whole hippie thing.

Posted by will or wont “Not interested in seeing any more Potter films directed by David Yates. He’s going to end up doing no less than four, for no other reason than that they couldn’t find anyone else. And if he’s got enough free time to fit in another one I doubt that he’s giving Deathly Hallows the attention it needs. Yates, by the way, is the one responsible for the terrible “Queen’s Handbag” thing. Sure, it was done at short notice but the fact is that it still turned out awful. If he gets the gig for the theme park short film it will be just as unwatchable. Give the reins to someone else for the short film. Please. David Heyman’s strength used to be that he would find the right person for the job, so let’s see that happening again.”

Posted by || “As for the OotP movie, it was not flawless or necessarily better than the rest as a whole. However, the acting was undoubtedly the best so far. The mental-imagery was done perfectly, and in terms of cinematography, it is only bested by PoA. PoA also has the best music, followed by GoF. CoS was the most faithful adaptation. GoF made the best of having to cut the size of the novel. OotP didn’t too so well in that case. And of course, PS/SS laid the groundwork & got the casting right.”

And now heres Kerrie a new edition to the grooup how had some to say: Posted by Kerrie “ED TOM: Yes I 100% agree, Yates and that screenwriter are complete morons. The characters and their relationships were ruined compared to the other movies and the books. And he left out waaay too much. Why the hell was GOF a longer movie then OOTP when OOTP is the longest book!? That doesn’t even make a little bit of sense. I liked OOTP the first time I saw it but after the second time I saw it, I realise how crap and innaccurate it was. There was no character development, and the whole film felt very rushed with not middle to take a breath ya know? Every film has got to have a start, middle and end but OTTP was missing the middle and all the character development. Why the hell did they ask him back to do HBP and DH. He’s going to ruin them! Theres no Bill or Fleur, no Lupin and Tonks forbidden love drama, no moaning myrtle to comfort Draco. I mean, an i ask what they ARE putting in HBP? because it seems that everything is missing! Please excuse the angry rant but I really hate Yates lol. I miss Alfonso, who would have been so perfect to direct DH. Tim Burton would have been so good too, pity he’s so busy.”

Thank you Kerrie i 100% agree with what ever you have to say. Keep it real my homie.

(Ed Tom Speeking) You see now my children, more and more people are realising how bad the OOPt movie was. They are finally realising that David Yates, Goldenberg and that Hooper popper what ever guy are complete gumbi heads. Though there still remains some few confused individuals that still think OOPT was moderately OK-ish and like good and stuff, but like i said, they are confused. Just look at what some so called HP Fan posted.

Posted by Preston “My favorite movie is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It was da bomb. Can I get a HOOT HOOT!”

Now come on is this what we want our children to here. “OOTP da bomb” really, so so confused.

Well i leave you with these last few words, my army is building more and more are joining the cause. Time still remains, we can still save The Deathley Hallows Film from Yates disasterous directorial skills and confounded editing partener. I have hope in Kloves, because he hasn’t failed my yet, but with Yates at every corner i fear the worst. Join me, and we shall rule the galaxy.

P.S. Can i get a HOOT HOOT!!

I LIKE THE LATEST DUMBLEDORE ACTOR BEST BUT THERE JUST THINGS MISSING NOT AS BAD AS THE ON SCREEN SIRIUS DONT GET ME STARTED

Avatar Image says:

Awww, man! I really want that! It looks totally awesome!!!

Avatar Image says:

That is so funny but hilariously accurate, Sonja! HAHA

I also agree completely about the movie issue. I wanted OOTP to be the best one to date but I really liked the second movie the best …. so far. crosses fingers One can only hope, yes?

Avatar Image says:

hmmm, Ed Tom do you actually have the ability to think other opinions and way of expression besides the same post I have to flick past in every news item?

Avatar Image says:

I agree Ed Tom, David Yates did a wonderful job with OotP,the best movie in the series.

Avatar Image says:

I can not wait to get this set! I love the NECA figures and am only missing one!

More confused individuals to ad to my list

Posted by hmmm, Ed Tom do you actually have the ability to think other opinions and way of expression besides the same post I have to flick past in every news item?

@ Kiwi Mc I .Do you have to make a comment to everyone one of my posts? Quit being such an attention seeker. Re read your comment because i certainly had no idea what point you were trying to make “do you actually have the ability to think other opinions and way of expression besides the same post ”. You need to work on the way you phrase your comments. Nice try though, your improving.

Posted by Scully I agree Ed Tom, David Yates did a wonderful job with OotP,the best movie in the series.

@ Scully. Are you like brain dead or something? i never said OOPT was the best movie in the series. Did you even read my post. Far out you seriously can’t read can you. i mean how could you make that mistake. Come on Scully get a grip of your self, your losing it.

P.S. I still haven’t got any HOOTS yet.

I can’t stand it anymore…I need the trailer…I even see it in my sleep and it is great…C’mon WB!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Wow awesome figurines… still though, can’t wait for the day where they will actually look like the actors.

So… trailer not out yet then? :P

Avatar Image says:

Well thank you so much Ed Tom, your polite demeanor and constructive criticism always makes me feel so warm inside! Quick suggestion: Why don’t you use an OOTP forum, that’s what they’re there for? The point I was trying to make was- you post the exact same thing in every news item, can’t you express yourself differently? Do you have other opinions on things realtive to the news posted?

PS I apologize Leaky for clogging up your news item with my “attention seeking” ways. How dare I.

Avatar Image says:

Ps Ed Tom, I hate to give you more attention, but dude – it’s not a question of “realising” that something is good or bad. Either you like it or you don’t. Trying to convert people to your way of thinking and then writing them off as stupid when you can’t… that’s how many of the world’s problems have arisen. So chill out, and let everyone decide for themselves which movie (and book for that matter) they like the best.

Avatar Image says:

I love all the books and all the movies;

Avatar Image says:

Oh, and by the way Ed Tom; I can´t give you a hoot, hoot: But I can give you a boo, boo instead.

Salina: Amen, girl

Avatar Image says:

1. Nice figures. Wonder if they’re available in the UK.

2. Ed Tom, you’re a mental case.

Avatar Image says:

What’s wrong with Michael? I love him as Dumbledore. I liked Richard Harris too, but unfortunately I think his age prevented him from being the Dumbledore Jo has written about. I see nothing wrong with Michael, and hope they will make an action figure out of him soon too.

Avatar Image says:

Fran: These figures are US and some other countries only. The UK has their own line of HP figures by a company called Popco. It is a great line! And they are on clearance in most stores in the UK. You should check them out.

Deb: Gambon already has a figure. It was released last year in the fall.

Ed Tom: You’re a jerk. I agree Sonja. “Boo boo!” I don’t get why people are talking about the movies and books in a figure topic. lol

Avatar Image says:

Oh, and I believe that Scully was using something we normal people that don’t insult others call sarcasm. That’s the way it seems to me.

Anyway, back to figure discussion.

Avatar Image says:

Dementor – you win the prize!(lol). I’m sure he’d have worked it out eventually. Back to the eternal wait for HBP news!

Avatar Image says:

LOL Thanks Scully!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah nice one Scully, you go Dementer and wowee wow Kiwi Mc I. You guys are sweets as. Lets try this now. I can post wat ever i choose 2 post when ever i like. this comment area is for the public to use so don’t tell me were i can or should post, FASCIST.

Sonja “Boo Boo” do uhav any idea how serious this yates issue isnt da time 4 stupid jokes like that, OK! Man this isn’t a game.

Dementor you couldn’t detect sarcasm it came up behind you and stuck a wand up your butt. was that sarcasm Scully used oh my God i feel like total moron face, how could i have made such a mistake, thanks for pointing that out to me Dementer. I apologies for calling you brain dead. man i feel stupid. That wasn’t sarcasm by the way, because i have no idea about this thing, you NORMAL people, call sarcasm.

I knew wat point you were trying to make Kiwi Mc I, i just wanted to feel the satisfaction of you having to go to the trouble of repeating yourself and having to explain what you ment. Thanks for making things clear though.It didn’t help though i still don’t understand what you were trying to tell me to do. Fascist. and i know your going to say that your not a fascist because you were just suggesting that i use a forum and not actually telling me wat to do, but your still a Fascist.

And Fran i understand im a mental case, but you forget i’m also a jerk. So we’re friends now right. Awsome. Can i come over today? I’ll call your, right. Cool. i’m so excited.

OOTP Movie sucks, still sucks and will suck till its dying sucky end.

P.S. Pee less.

Avatar Image says:

Also Kiwi Mc I, because you avoid everyone of my questions im going to avoid everyone of yours. Now you make a comment to my comment, then i will post a comment to yours and then Dementors clogged ass will expode, and the comments will continue. we are really starting to establish a strong reltionship with one another. I hope one day we will all be friends.

Avatar Image says:

LOL

Anyway, I’m sure the great people at Leaky would love if the conversation moved from being rude to people to talking about the actual subject. I really wish they would intervene.

Avatar Image says:

(Sigh)

Another day, another ‘Leaky’ argument…

Well, all I ask from you, Ed Tom, is that you take a little bit more time writing out your comments, because some of your writing is squished together, which makes it even more annoying to read. Hmm… I guess you’ve just been in such a fury lately.
