This is a list of officially licensed Harry Potter items that are rare, promotional, etc. Not your readily available items. Here is the list I have compiled so far. It's definitely a WIP. I update the list here on the front page so it is always easy to find.

I will try and include pictures in the future. I do have pictures of almost everything listed here if needed. If you have any information on any of these let me know and I'll add it.

To clear up any confusion, I don't own all of this stuff & I don't have any of these items for sale.

Vertebrae Candle--
This is the rarest item I have found; so much so I've only found one picture of one in a personal collection although it is easy to find the advertising one . It is a replica of the spine candles seen in POA when Harry learns to conjure the Patronus from Prof. Lupin. It was made by the Noble Collection and was available for just a few weeks before it was discontinued for safety concerns. I've been told less than 100 made it out the door. I tried to confirm this with Noble but did not get a reply. Ironically you can find it listed for sale at a lot of websites because the advertising had been sent out prior to them shipping which is normal for Noble. And they discontinued it before they had actually shipped out many, hence the scarcity.

Although the candles were seen in 2004 POA the Noble replica was not released until 2007 with Noble's OOTP line of merchandise.

A few actual screen used candles were given away by the studio after POA and these are sometimes mistaken with the Noble replica version given the fact there were so few of both. However the screen used are easily recognizable as there are several varying features.


Dumbledore Pocket Watch--

I'm adding a new section below, this is a list of other Harry Potter replicas not necessarily rare but some are hard to find. Just to keep track of what is out there.


Gringott's replica coins
Pobjoys made the originals for the movie and released their own sets after the first movie. (Nobles are a copy of these.) They made 3 coin sets and also individual carded coins. The only difference between these and the actual screen used is the screen used were struck twice so the have a deeper relief.

There is also a set of coins made from the original HP design used on the earlier HP pieces. Actually foil wrapped bubblegum coins.

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

Well with 237 views at the time of this posting and only 3 responses, that is only barely over a 1% interest. I'm quite surprised really, thought there was more HP fans. I doubt that it is worth my time and effort so I'll have to think about it.

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

I'm really suprised so many rpf members are into harry potter.

I always thought it appealed only to the younger kids.

There's no shortage of HP interest on the RPF, you just might have to give it more than a day & a half. ;)

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

What would you classify as "rare"? I haven't come across too many "Limited Edition" pieces (at least none that couldn't be had from another company cheaper). I'd be curious to see what's on the list!

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

Alright since a few more have spoken up, I won't just discount the idea . (It is still only about a 2% response rate.)

What would you classify as "rare"? I haven't come across too many "Limited Edition" pieces (at least none that couldn't be had from another company cheaper). I'd be curious to see what's on the list!

Here is what I classify as a rare replica

1 Generally, I don't count anything that is mass marketed, still in production, or easily obtainable, such as most of the Noble Collection, WWOHP items, etc. There are however a few known exceptions such as..

The Japanese exclusive items.

Earlier movie items with small run sizes.

Some of NECA's replicas are pretty hard to find as well.

2 Limited editions qualify as long as the number is reasonable. Amazons LE The Tales of the Beetle Bard size was 100,000 I believe so that would not qualify. 1,000 or less seems the norm.

3 For the most part, the rarest replicas seems to be the promotional items, contest prizes, & premier giveaways. These items were never for sale.

I'm still compiling my list and trying to figure out the best way to organize it.

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

how about replicas that wb still has not put out. would that count as rare?

Harry Potter Vibrating Broom Nimbus 2000 should be on the list for rare since you can not get it on the market any more

It has to be an official licensed released replica. If it is not out yet, then it is as yet unreleased so no it would not be on the list.

The Vibrating Broom is considered a toy, not a realistic replica. It's not full size, made of cheap plastic, etc. There are several broom replicas (not NC) that make the list though.

BTW There are 2 books out on HP collectibles, they contain the toys, cards, figures, etc. But most of what I am talking about is not listed in them.

Re: Rare Harry Potter replicas

The Japan stuff now really overlaps the Noble stuff which makes me sad. I have Hermione's mirror from CoS which was a Japan-only piece, and I know it can fetch a pretty penny. I also have a couple of quill replicas that are Japan only. I don't know where my polyjuice mug came from, but it was also a limited deal.
