Beauxbatons headmistress Olympe Maxime and Hogwarts caretaker Argus Filch (complete with Mrs Norris) will join the Harry Potter Funko Pop! Vinyl line when they’re released exclusively for this year’s New York Comic Con.
The convention takes place from 3–6 October from which time both figures will also be available for a limited general sale at your favourite Pop! collectible stores (so, every four-walled room on the planet). Maxime and Filch complete a huge wave of Yule Ball themed Pop! Vinyl figures released in 2019 and can also be found in Funko’s 2019 Harry Potter Advent calendar.
Earlier this year, Rita Skeeter, Fawkes and Nagini were released as San Diego Comic Con exclusives, while a trio of Irish-flavoured Weasley children was released in March. If you’re still craving more ‘Potter’ Pop! figures, you’ll be able to collect Nymphadora Tonks from next March, as well as the trio with their Patronus animals.

Funko will release a ‘Pop! Town’ of Hagrid’s Hut and Fang the Boarhound in December. This is the first Town release (a combination character and location set) for the Harry Potter franchise, following a horde of Pop! Vinyls and Movie Moments, an Advent calendar and a tabletop strategy game.

Funko will release two ‘Funkoverse’ light strategy tabletop games, allowing players to battle head-to-head with Wizarding World Pop! Vinyl characters in locations and scenes from the books.
Both games include a set of miniature Pop! figures, as well as a base board and a number of thematic cards and items for gameplay. The base set (titled ‘Harry Potter’ 100) includes Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Bellatrix Lestrange and Lord Voldemort Pop! figures, and sees players battle it out in both Diagon Alley and the Room of Requirement.
The expansion (‘Harry Potter’ 101) includes Ron Weasley and Draco Malfoy figures, and gives players the chance to battle in both the Forbidden Forest and Hogwarts Potions Classroom. Both sets can be combined for more complex gameplay, and the packaging notes that games are suited to between 2 and 4 players and will last between 20 and 60 minutes.
