They tend to put you on the mailing list after you buy something from them, that's how I get the catalog, but you could try calling to see if they will send it to you.
What is up with two Alastor Moody wands? I see has silver rings on it now. Did they change it for the last movie?
hopefully we will find out friday.
I noticed that too about Moodys wand too.... I don't like it.
I don't know about Moodys, but having just re listened to the audio book I can tell you that Harry's wand breaks (duh). He uses a random death eaters, then he steals belatrix and Draco's at the house. Draco uses his mommies. Volde breaks Lucius's wand (that is in the cane in movies but not in books) attacking Harry and so Lucius most likely gets another for Part 2. Weather Narcissa (draco's mom will get a new one as well...or if for the movie they just give a new one to draco, who knows.
But all of the Noble wands make sense. Also an interesting note, the death eater serpent wand is very similar but not exactly the same as one from the Universal parks. I think ther is another like that as well. All universal wands can be purchased at their website for the same price as noble. Other than the character wands, there are about three or four different molds exclusive to Olivanders. Most of those molds come in two different color schemes (each having a different name. The Olivanders come in a box that says olivander's across the top. the character wands come in plane grey boxes. I like those better than the new noble boxes, but they don't come with name tags or anything.
I just wanted to let everyone know, if you order the new wands, make sure you order them from Noble and not the WB shop.. the price is the same as the old ones on the WB shop, about 35 dollars.
What's the deal with two versions of Harry's, Voldemort's and Dumbledor's wands? One is $35 and the other is $28. Are the wands the same, just different packaging?
The original line came in really nice collector's boxes. Velvet lined, lace accents, leather textured lid. I assume these new ones come in cheap packaging like the Universal versions. Cardboard, plastic insert.
has anyone bought from the new wands yet?

New wands don't ship until December 6
The best deal seems to be to order the ten you want and get the display case for free. Each wand comes with a metal clip with the wand owner's name. I already made my first order of all the death eater's. I will review them once they come in.
First post (of many I predict)! Hurrah!
I hope the UK Noble site updates with the new wands and that rather spiffy deal of the free display plaque when you buy 4/10. I'm disappointed about the new boxes though, the Ollivanders ones were really nice, but I only managed to get three of them (with a fourth - Dumbledore's) on it's way. However this also means that 4 of my wands are going to be without name clips that the new ones are coming with. I wonder if Noble will offer spare name clips seperately...
Also disappointed that they aren't selling Luna's old wand seperately - I think that's a much better design than the new one but don't fancy shelling out for the Dumbedore's Army set since I already have Harry and Hermione's.

I contacted Noble Collection about selling the name plates separately. This was their response:
Those will be offered at a later time but we haven't determined how much they will cost.
Please contact us again at the end of January.

I like the look of many of their wands... but I keep hearing that they feel cheap. I wish they were made of wood. I want something that feels real and feels like it will hold up to simple abuse... which doesn't seem to be the case (for what I hear) with these wands. Can anyone confirm?
These are collectibles, prop replicas, not toys.
Just because they are collectibles doesn't mean they can't be more well made. I am sure they are just fine if all you want to do is display it... but it IS a wand... it would be nice to "use" it every once in awhile.
They are very well made. Molded from the original props, painted well (not all of them), cast in resin. Resin is a very common and quality material. It just doesn't hold up to playing with them.
Edit: Not to mention that what you're asking for would cost so much money you wouldn't want to run around with them anyway. They would still have to be painted and wood dents and bruises like any material. It's important to realize the difference between what you expect out of a plastic toy and a prop replica.
Then my question is.. since these are painted, do they scratch easy?
Since they have to be painted, no matter what material they are made out of, yes paint can wear off.
Yeah, all I'm saying is that they are really great pieces for the price. If you want something absolutely exact, these are what you would buy. If you want to run around with them, get the cheap halloween toy. A wooden replica, meticulously carved stained and/or painted would run you way over $100.
Not trying to knock you or anything.
The other wands for Bellatrix and Lucius are probably also replacements made for them after Voldemort took Lucius's wand which then got destroyed, and Hermione stole Bellatrix's First wand.
