The Best Harry Potter Pops!

Postby BugsBunny » Sun Sep 13, 2020 7:15 pm

What are the best Harry Potter Pops?

Odd Fact:
In 2015, Funko started making Harry Potter Pop! figures.
The same year 2015, Emma Watson appeared in the TV show “The Vicar of Dibley”.

If you count FBAWTFT, I think the Occamy is probably the best pop. The mold is great and the colors are gorgeous, really one of the prettiest pops out there period. If we're talking just HP, then my favorite is Boggart as Snape. It's such a funny moment in the movie and because it's only on the screen for a minute makes it even more impressive to have it's own pop. The mold is great on it as well and if you take another look, even the animal pelts and vulture hat he wears have the classic Pop! eyes. It's genius! Lol

I agree that the Occamy is an absolutely beautiful pop - one of my favorites period, not just in the HP world.

As for best HP pops? My personal favorites are the action quidditch poses for the Gryffindor team (Harry #31, Ginny #53, and Ron #54), Luna with her lionhead (#47), Luna with glasses (#41), and Sirius Black (prisoner #67). The detail on those is just beautiful, and they make me smile every time.

On a not-as-impressive favorite, I like Triwizard Tournament Harry holding a dragon egg. That was the first HP pop that started me learning about exclusives, how to check stock, and the joy of the Target back room. lol

I think Bogart Snape is one of the top HP pops. Professor Quirrell is definitely a top one as well. I bought 2 of him so I could have have without the turban on, turned backwards. He is one of the very few 2 sided pops.

I ownly own three HP pops. I'm mostly attached to the books, not the movies, so I only bought ones that were my picture of the books. But I have two of Harry because both of these were fantastic and I couldn't pass: Harry w/ Hedwig and Quidditch Harry.

The other pop I have is Christmas Sweater Ron simply because I'd at least like to have one of each of the trio. I'm still waiting on a version of Hermione I like.

For the Harry Potter series, I definitely agree with the Bogart as Snape and Luna w/ her Spectraspecs. The details on these are awaiting! To add too those, I love Harry w/ his Firebolt. The detail of having Buckbeak’s feather in the broom was a small but great detail. Also the Harry on Platform 9 3/4 is another great movie moment.

For Fantastic Beasts, the Occamy is a great design and the coloring is great. I also really love the Nagini (human version) as the detail of the scales on her are subtle and yet make her great! I also love the original Newt as he turned out so good with house scarf and case.

This is a great thread. I have very few PoPs in my collection, but really love them. I've decided to make two or three cubby-style shelves (18"x18"x18") and have each display my favorite PoP lines. Harry Potter is at the top of the list. I'll probably only display a dozen or so pieces, so I am reading with great interest what you think your favorite HP PoPs are. It's a huge challenge when you limit yourself to a set number.

I would totally buy them! My thought is that they should be a Universal Parks exclusive since that is where they actually debuted.

Bogart Snape has such great detail, and was such a fun moment of the books/movies - absolutely agree! The little details really make the whole pop one of the best of the series!

Boggart as Snape is amazing! But, my personal favorite is SDCC Luna Lovegood because she’s my favorite character, and that’s her best pop IMO

That Buckbeak feather on the broom was the #1 reason I needed that pop! The little details always impress me more than the obvious stuff!

I went back and forth on whether to buy human Nagini, but after a friend got lucky with a booth draw, I kinda had to! Really glad I did ultimately, you're right about her detailing! Such a beautiful pop!

Nothing wrong with being a fan of a particular pop, even if it's a bit dark. The Dementor was so well done, and so creepy, that I was actually hesitant to purchase it originally! Still creeps me out a bit, but that's what a dementor should do! Gotta keep me in line somehow, right?

Absolutely love the ghosts! Really makes me regret that we never saw an on-screen Peeves, so our chances of getting a Peeves pop aren't great. If they want to keep going with the other ghosts though, that would be great and insta-buys for me! Especially if they are GITD!

It looks even better than I thought it would. Hoping it's more tall than wide, since I'll be buying it and space is always an issue! But can't miss out on the Burrow! (And Molly!)

My favorite HP pop is the Black and White Prisoner Sirius Black. Absolutely love Sirius and that mold and coloring is epic.

Other than that, I really like the characters on broom (Ron, Ginny, Harry) and 10" Hedwig.

The Occamy was such a must-have for me that I actually left SDCC to sit in line at a local mall to make sure I got one. The website had failed me, and they had a massive fail with the line (they let people in the back stairs, who of course jumped in line and left those of us out front angry and frustrated!). It was totally worth spending the morning away from the con - no regrets!!

I love Sirius for the color and mold, but I also really loved that he was shipped to me, and I didn't have to hunt him! First time something I ordered came as the chase! I loved him anyway, but getting the chase as my order made it even better!

Nah, I wouldn't even want to try to attach that thing with duct tape! lol It would take away from the beauty of the figure itself!
