Funko kicks off this week in a huge way with an entirely new product line called 5 Star and it looks like it will be another hit. We’ll let Funko explain it for themselves.
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 Starline 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.
