Request: Any MOC collectors who collect Harry Potter figures?

Post by Shocka on Wed Oct 08, 2008 8:25 am

I'm looking for the barcodes from the two Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix Death Eater figures from the 6" NECA line - if anyone can help me out with these, can get them straight off the packet or knows where I can find them online, I'd be deeply appreciative!

out of pure interest, why do you need the barcodes? I have seen similar requests elsewhere and have always wondered why.

Trying to track down retailers that have these in stock - I can contact vendors and list barcodes, which show up in their systems and can give specifics on which stores and where have them!

ah, ok. well good luck in your hunt. sorry I couldn't be any help.

I know boarders over here had piles of the Harry Potter figs, so maybe they might be worth a look.

My Target has a few of these, or did last week. I think they are about $25 a pop.

I can check it out if you'd like. How many Death Eater variations did they make?

I have one, though I know there was atleast one more:

Hey Artistix, if you could check for me that'd rock - at the moment all of their Harry Potter figures are on clearance for $10 - you have one of the two Death Eaters there, the other is slightly different, and I'm after both (as well as both Lucius and Bellatrix, and also Hermoine, all MOC) - they're a bargain at that price. Could you check for me?

I did manage to find the barcodes after all, they are:
Death Eater 1 634482605370
Death Eater 2 634482605387
Bellatrix 634482491577
Lucius 634482491560

Bad news Shocka.

I went down to Target on my lunch break a minute ago & the Potter figures were indeed in a bargain bin for about $10, however all that was left were several Harry's, a Snape & a Sirius Black.

I wanted to get the other Death Eater too, guess that will have to wait.

I don't know if any of you were into the 3 3/4" European Harry Potter line from Popco, they sure weren't easy to get unless you have friends in the UK.

According to the company who sculpt the figures for Popco (DesignWorks who also sculpt Dr. Who), the company Popco has gone under.

Designworks are hoping another company will pick up the line & take off from the same place as Popco, but there is only a slim chance of that happening.

I feel very bad for Designworks as they put a lot of effort into their work. And I know they had some awesome playsets lined-up as well.

It is not a huge surprise to UK folk as neither Potter or Golden Compass sold really well for Popco. And they didn't manage to get their James Bond line off the ground.

Here is my Popco Potter collection (I have Bellatrix on the way)...

That sucks - I've never seen any of those before, but they look quite good, and the range of characters is much better than the NECA range. Love that Umbridge and Luna! I hope another company will pick up..

There were some great figures in the line, & some that weren't soo great, as is usual with any scale. Harry was 3.75" & everyone was scaled around him. So the male teachers are over 4".

Dumbledore & Umbridge were the best. Bellatrix is pretty damn good too. Ginnny, Draco & Neville were the best of the kids.







They also made 2 other big playsets, the Common Room & the Room of Requirement. As well as the Knight Bus with Stan Shunpike. All of which I will hunt down some day.

I went and had a look at Target Melb CBD at lunch-time but they only had 1x Series 1 Sirius and 2x Series 2 Harrys @ $9.87.
