Are you ready for the new Harry Potter movie this week? Then definitely check out these awesome deals on Harry Potter mini busts by Gentle Giant!  We also have several of the newest Harry Potter Busts releases as PreOrder

CHO CHANG ORDER OF THE PHOENIX MINI BUST BY GENTLE GIANT – $15.95

After the death of her boyfriend, Cedric Diggory, at the Triwizard Tournament, Cho Chang was still suffering from the loss upon her return to school in September. Her increasing feelings for Harry did not help her troubled state of mind, and she quickly changed from being a popular, giggly girl into one who could be found more often than not crying in the toilets. She nevertheless joined Dumbledore’s Army when it was set up and became an enthusiastic member, learning to master spells she had always struggled with before. Limited Edition of 2500. Designed in 1/6 scale – Stands 6 inches tall.

FRED/GEORGE WEASLEY MINI BUSTS SDCC 2-PACK SET BY GENTLE GIANT – $29.95

Where there’s one Weasley twin, the other can’t be far behind. So it is here as Fred and George are up to their old shenanigans! Fred offers a treat from their Skiving Snackboxes, while George laughs hysterically on the sidelines. Gentle Giant offers its Harry Potter collectors this unique 2-pack of mini busts a former Comic-Con Exclusive. Each statue measures about 7 1/2-inches tall, and the sets are limited to 2,000 pieces. Order this and you get twice the fun and magic in one box!

HARRY POTTER YR 5: ORDER OF THE PHOENIX MINI BUST BY GENTLE GIANT – $14.95

Now in his fifth year at Hogwarts, Harry Potters life begins to get ever more perilous as he encounters terrifying dreams, a teacher with an attitude like venom, and corruption of the highest level. Soon he finds himself in the Ministry of Magic under direct threat from some of the most feared creatures in the magical world: Voldemort’s Death Eaters. Harry has to partake in deadly detentions, secret meetings with fellow students, and he gets banned from one of the things he loves the most. But it’s not all gloom and doom! Limited Edition of 5000. Designed in 1/6 scale – Stands 6.25-inches tall.

NYMPHADORA TONKS HARRY POTTER MINI BUST BY GENTLE GIANT – $24.95

Nymphadora Tonks, who despises her given name, prefers to use her surname alone. She is described as a vivacious young woman in her twenties, an Auror and a member of the Order of the Phoenix. As a Metamorphmagus, Tonks can alter her appearance at will. She makes extensive use of this skill not only to disguise herself in the line of duty, but also for experimenting with her appearance and even for the entertainment of her friends. However, she is notoriously clumsy and unskilled at household spells like cooking, cleaning and setting up place settings tending to break dishes when trying to help. This mini bust stands 7.5 inches tall.

REMUS LUPIN HARRY POTTER MINI BUST BY GENTLE GIANT – $29.95

Man, wizard, or wolf? Yes! In the Harry Potter universe, Remus Lupin is a strong and powerful wizard. He’s also a werewolf and one of Hogwarts most revered teachers. From Gentle Giant, this remarkably lifelike rendering of this very capable master of the Dark Arts stands 7-inches tall and portrays him precisely as seen on the silver screen. Here he looks like an ordinary man, but will that change after you get him home? Add him to your growing gathering of mini busts and other Harry Potter memorabilia and find out! Limited edition to 1,250 pieces.
