With the expansion of the Harry Potter universe into the Fantastic Beasts movie franchise, the magic of the wizarding world is not over quite yet. Japan is some of J.K Rowling’s biggest fans with millions of books and movie tickets being sold across the country. Osaka’s Universal Studios Japan is even home to the only Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park outside of the United States! This Harry Potter obsession means that Japan has more treasure than Gringotts Bank when it comes to Wizarding World merchandise. Take a look at some of our favorite HP goodies below.
Harry Potter Nendoroids
If you’re looking for a cuter alternative to the somewhat terrifying Harry Potter Funko Pops, look no further than the Harry Potter Nendoroid series from Good Smile Company. As with other Nendoroids, the figures are fully poseable and come with several face plates with different expressions for full customizability. Even their pets, Hedwig the owl, Scabbers the rat and Crookshanks the cat are included! These chibi renditions of the famous trio Harry, Ron and Hermione are beautifully detailed and would be a perfect addition to any dedicated Potterhead’s collection.
Harry Potter Q Poskets
Several Wizarding World characters get the kawaii treatment in these figures from Q Posket by Banpresto. As with other Q Posket figures, each character is gorgeously detailed and as cute as a baby niffler! Currently Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, and Newt Scamander Q Posket figures are available in a matte color scheme or with a pearl finish.
Fantastic Beasts Travel Pass Cases
If you want to share your love of Fantastic Beasts in a subtler way, then these pass holders are perfect for you! Illustrated in gorgeous art deco style, you can keep your travel cards safe in the most elegant way. You may not be catching the Hogwarts Express, but you can still express your fandom to the world on your daily commute with these wonderful travel pass cases!
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald capsule toy wands
These beautifully crafted wands are available throughout Japan as limited-edition capsule toys to commemorate the release of the latest installment in the Fantastic Beasts film franchise. Produced by Takara Tomy Arts, these miniature figures are high-quality and near-perfect recreations of the wands seen in Fantastic Beasts! Alongside the powerful Elder Wand, you can also find the wands of Newt Scamander, Porpentina Goldstein, Queenie Goldstein, and Albus Dumbledore.
Harry Potter Chokkorisan
Magic doesn’t get much cuter than this! These adorable Chokkorisan palm pals from Takara Tomy Arts are specially designed for creative photo opportunities, so you can reenact your favorite scenes from the series or create your own adorable set-ups. They come as ten characters from the Wizarding World franchises, including Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape, and Newt Scamander.
