Harry Potter 24pc Pocket Pop! Advent Calendar

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Oh good to know. I pre-ordered one from my local Pop store, however I'd wanna get the Gamestop one if its actually exclusive (though I have yet to see confirmation that there is a difference between the ones sold at Gamestop and the ones sold elsewhere).

People have seen them at Target, but there was no marking that they have exclusives, so it's hard to tell without someone being brave enough to do an unboxing lol

Yep and this is why I have my hiding in my office where I won't see it every day lol


LOL - mine got delivered today, and I'm leaving it in the sealed shipping box to avoid temptation!

LOL - I've buried mine on the dining room table so I can't get to it immediately! I want to open it so badly though!! Willpower...I have willpower, darnit! (No, I don't, but it's seriously buried).

So where has everyone been buying their calendars from? I've seen them for purchase at GS, B&N, Target and Amazon. And is everyone staying strong and buying 1, or did you get sucked in for the 3 GS exclusives and buy 2 of the calendars?

It's so interesting the potential exclusives at Gamestop and Target, I don't know which one to pick up!

If cost is an issue try Gamestop, I got mine for $15 less ($40) then I've seen others say it's costing at Target ($55).

I think Target is getting the regular version. There's not a sticker like there is with the Gamestop one.

This is currently on sale on GameStop's website for $31.99, too bad it's unavailable. However, the GameStop exclusive is currently available on ThinkGeek.com for $40. I was able to buy one for myself, yay!! ;)

If you look at the picture of the common set on HotTopic, Lord Voldemort is not one of the 24 figures. When you read the product specifications on ThinkGeek it says,

"Includes 3 figures only available at ThinkGeek / GameStop
We'll just call those the Figures-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, shall we?"


So I wonder if at least one of the exclusive figures is Lord Voldemort?

No, argh!! ](*,) ](*,) I already bought the Target one. At least it's sitting unopened, and returnable if I manage to snag an exclusive one online. Thanks for mentioning this, it might've driven me nuts after the fact!

Well, ThinkGeek sure sold out quickly, I checked last night and it was already out of stock. Luckily mine should be delivered Saturday!! :)

I hope Target get's more as I really one the "common" set as well. lol

well my GS screwed me. I guess I should have checked sooner. But even with a presorder in the system and no call to tell me it was in they decided to sell it. His reasoning "sorry no one looked for preorder and it was a hot item with people begging for it" But hey you can have your money back.

Well F you thanks for making me pay secondary prices but hey got my $5 dollars back.

Never going back to that GS again. I will drive the 10 min down the road to other one.

I've had bad luck with preorders from GS too :( In fact, I have never gotten a call for a preorder, I always just hear that it's starting to come out and check the site or go in and ask if I have the time. Sorry they did that :(

I was fortunate enough to find one at my EBgames today and they had 20% off with the Edge card so bonus! Apparently they weren't going to get any but a lady pre-ordered 3 then came in the other day and cancelled them. Thank you pre-order lady!

Target.com just restocked these, and I was able to get one @ 25% off w/ free shipping! ;)

There were 10 remaining when I first saw the restock and now, about 6 minutes later there are only 4

I had pre-ordered one at GameStop but also ordered one on Amazon. I will probably open the Amazon one and save the GameStop one for next year. I wish they had not done store exclusives with these. Knowing what the exclusives would be would help in making the decision of what one to get/open but with not knowing it has me on the fence. Also I have yet to hear if anyone has caved and opened a Target one yet to see if they have an exclusive as well.

I had this problem once with Gamestop too, around the holidays as well. I think it is because they tend to get temporary workers that are not as diligent or careful about things like pre-orders getting to the right person. Sorry that happened to you.

That's really terrible of them to do that! Doesn't seem like most GS got a lot of the advent calendars, so why on earth wouldn't they look to check if it was preorder? Getting your money back doesn't help you with getting the actual product! Thank goodness there's another GS you can do to so you can avoid these cretins. Have you been able to find a calendar in the meantime??

I actually drive to the 4th closest GS to me, and avoid the other 3 - they're alright, but the employees at the 4th are just so much nicer! It's worth the longer drive for me.
