It does not need to have a Hogwarts degree or Ilvermorny to understand that the creator of one of the most popular literary works in the wizarding world would potentially get his own Funko Pop figure, especially when he’s the star of the new Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
We are glad to have the first look over the Newt Scamander figure. Played by Eddie Redmayne in the movie , Scamander’s tiny version is outfitted with his stylish blue coat, wand, house Hufflepuff scarf, and, of course, egg 🙂

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an adaption of J.K. Rowling‘s book of the same name. That book, “written” by Scamander, is a companion piece to the main novels, and is referenced in the Harry Potter series as a text book used by Hogwarts students. While the book-within-a-book is just a magical creature encyclopedia, the film (Rowling’s first screenplay) is set in New York City in the 1920s, and follows Scamander as he deals with a very different wizarding world in America than the one he knows, all while he tries to recapture his escaped creatures.
If you do manage to snag one of these new Pop! figures of him, make sure to lock the briefcase. Just to be safe.
