Default Review: Gentle Giant Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Mini Bust


While they look like they might attract a younger audience, the Harry Potter set of Gentle Giant busts are not for children. Admittedly, there are some movable pieces and appendages, but given their weight and general look of being a collectible, they definitely cater to an older audience, especially one who loves Harry Potter merchandise, both grand and small.

The newest of the Gentle Giant bust line, which won't be released until sometime early next year, is the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2-era bust featuring Harry in his final battle wardrobe, molded into the same position seen while duelling Voldemort in the Hogwarts courtyard at the end of the film series. The clothes are intricately created, to show the type of natural folds and creases in jackets and jeans worn by an actual person. The bust looks nearly human-like in that way, where Harry's sweater and jacket are whisked aside as he leans back to take aim at his opponent - naturally Voldemort if one can imagine the Dark Lord standing before Harry.

There is something rather curious about the way Harry's face was created, though, and a bit funny given current events. Harry's face in this bust rather remarkably resembles that of actor Jon Hamm, and for those keeping tabs on Daniel Radcliffe's career right now, they would know that Dan and Jon starred in a miniseries called A Young Doctor's Notebook, airing this month on UK network Sky Arts. Dan and Jon incidentally portray the same character at different ages, so it's quite unnerving, to be honest, that the Harry bust, obviously based off of Dan's version of the character from the final film, looks so much like another actor who is indeed playing an older version of himself in another project. Unnerving, yes, as if the people who made the bust had this subconscious connection to Dan and Jon looking alike, and created the bust as this amalgamation of the two actors, with trademark round glasses, into a more mature-looking Harry Potter.

The Harry bust is quite sturdy and a bit heavy, at over five pounds, so it can be placed on shelves, desks or any kind of tables, and absolutely can be used as a paperweight. The niftiest part of the bust is that the wand hand is detachable and movable, so if the owner of the limited-edition collectible felt the need to play with the bust, and move the wand hand from side to side, they could very well do so (or even get a bit Star Wars-esque morbid and just remove the hand altogether).

The Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Mini Bust is an attractive and practical collectible to own for those who love their vast assortments of Harry Potter merchandise. The bust can be pre-ordered now at Gentle Giant and Entertainment Earth.
