Kinds of Harry Potter action figures

With the latest Harry Potter movie coming out this fall, you can be sure Harry Potter action figures will be in big demand! Kids love action figures, and with Harry Potter it's not just boys. Both boys and girls love to play with the Harry Potter character figures.

But adults love the collectible type of Harry Potter action figures too. These are otherwise known as mini bust, statuettes or figurines. These are high quality, very detailed and often hand painted. New Harry Potter characters are coming out now as figurines.

You also can find Harry Potter action figures complete with their own dioramas. These often replicate a popular scene from the Harry Potter movies. You can even find ones that are battery operated and move in different ways.

Lets check out all the different types of Harry Potter action figures and figurines below from Amazon so you can see what will be popular this year for Christmas. Harry Potter fans will love one of these Harry Potter action figures, young and old alike! 

Standard Harry Potter action action figures

The HP figures below are the most common type. They are made for kids to play with and can take a lot of punishment. Most of them come single, not as a set. Their arms and legs, even head and accessories can often be moved in different positions.

Harry Potter action figures come in different sizes, so it's important to keep that in mind when buying more than one. The 7 inch high models seem to be the most popular. However you can also find them in 2", 3", 6", 8" inch and other sizes.

Collectible Harry Potter figurines

The next type of Harry Potter action figures are the figurines, mini bust or statues. They are for collectors or older kids who want to display their figures. They are high quality with lots of details and often hand painted.

In time these could be worth a lot of money. You can end up wanting to buy all of them to have a big collection however. It can be addictive to get all the Harry Potter characters for a full, complete set to show off!

The next figures come with their own diorama sets. These are often popular scenes from the Harry Potter movies, or ionic backgrounds. They look great and give the Harry Potter action figures their own stand.

You can play with them or stand them up on a  shelf as a display. Some have moving parts and act like a small play set. Diorama figure sets are nice and you can find many Harry Potter characters with their own diorama.

Finally we have the Harry Potter action figure sets that come with two or more figures. Some of them are movable play figures while others are more like collectible sets that have no moving parts. These types are highly detailed and make great gifts.

      Glad to help Uma07. I assume Amazon ships to India, but I'm not sure. Different items have different shipping rules. You could try to order it and if it cannot be shipped to India there will be an error message. Good luck and thanks. :)
