Funko is introducing a new line of figures they have dubbed 5 Star. The figures will feature three points of articulation, window packaging, and character-specific accessories. The book-style package will also work as a background for figure dioramas. The brand they chose to launch the line is perfect for the book-style box as well: Harry Potter! Five figures will launch the line, with more fan-favorite licenses coming later this year. Check out the first five that will hit stores this July down below.
Funko is thrilled to dive deeper into the world of storytelling
and pop culture with our latest line of
collectible vinyl figures – 5 Star!
In addition to Funko's usual attention to detail and
characterization, the 5 Star line boasts several unique
features including three points of articulation, allowing the figures
to be posed, window display box packaging that
mimics the opening of a book and situates each character
in their unique world, and thoughtful accessories
that further the character's narrative.
Collectors with a passion for creatively displaying
their figures can capitalize on the ability to use 5 Star figures'
different poses, incorporating the accessories and even
the packaging to create a unique tableau or
diorama that continues the narrative adventure.
The 5 Star line launches with the ever-magical
Wizarding World with the beloved Harry Potter and his friends
Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley with their
Hogwarts mentors Albus Dumbledore and Rubeus Hagrid.
Each figure is accompanied by an animal companion such as
Hedwig the owl or by an iconic character-defining
object such as Harry's Hogwarts acceptance letter
or Hagrid's pink umbrella. Each figure will cost $10.
The 5 Star line will expand with additional licenses later this year.
Be on the lookout for 5 Star in stores near you this summer!
What is a Funko line without exclusives? Walmart will have exclusive versions of most of the characters with different looks and accessories. They even have dibs on the Snape figure.
