NECA has announced a partnership with TOMY to bring some new Harry Potter items to fans in the U.S. The partnership will see the release of, previously European exclusive, Harry Potter collectibles to fans in the states.
“In a multinational collaborative effort to continue to bring you the coolest and most up-to-date righteous entertainment memorabilia, NECA has partnered with TOMY to distribute their European Harry Potter merchandise in the US!
If you’re imagining long hours in smoke-filled back rooms negotiating the deal, yeah, sure, go with that. The important thing to take away is you won’t have to pay the huge bucks for specially-imported Harry Potter items, because you’ll be able to get them right from us!
We’re still going to have our very own line for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows later in the Fall, but we wanted to get the news out about these TOMY items now because we’re so excited about partnering up.
Here’s what’s on tap first:
Harry Potter Voice-Activated Flashlight Wand Torches
Available in Harry or Hermione. Record your own voice commands into the flashlight wand. Say “Lumos” to activate and “Nox” to deactivate!
Harry Potter Infrared Battling Wands
Available in Harry, Voldemort, Hermione, and Ron. Features authentic movie sounds, and infrared beams can interact with each other for the ultimate spell battle experience!
Harry Potter Character Casting Kit
Available in Harry/Dumbledore or Voldemort/Snape. Create your very own miniature character busts. Mold and Cast out highly detailed models, then decorate with included metallic model paints.
