Just a few days ago, Funko announced that it would be releasing a Harry Potter Advent Calendar for 2018, and Potterheads around the world went bananas! It's certainly not cheap at $99.99 (yikes!), but it definitely is cool.
The calendar includes 24 different Harry Potter mini vinyl figures, including the likes of Hermione, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Ron, and of course, Harry. There are also witches, elves, beasts and ghosts and a whole bunch of Hogwarts-themed characters.
The box has a fold-down play scene included, so as you collect your characters, you can start reenacting all those battles and unforgettable Potter moments.
Who needs chocolate? Give me a Potter calendar any day.
The release date for this calendar is 15th November, 2018. Mighty Ape ships very fast (from New Zealand), so you should be fine to receive this well in time for 1st December.
Mighty Ape ships for $6.
We've also seen this one on pre-sale at Zavvi Australia ($91.99), but given that Zavvi ships from the UK, there's virtually no chance you'd get this by 1st December. It's best to stick to stores closer to home.
