Butterbeer signing in again!

Of course, I have not spent nearly a tenth as much as I would like to. Frankly, I have not spent any time being faithful here as you know. Let us just say that my excuse is the typical – Muggle education has completely dominated my entire life! Fortunately it is Winter break now, the time to make up for my slackness. And trust me, this will most definitely compensate – the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection box.

September 7 2012, an amazing box of all the Harry Potter items you could have ever dreamed of will be released for the price of $499.99. Considering that this contains 31 discs of the movies (2D AND 3D), Special Features, never-before-seen footage and the 8-part series “Creating the World of Harry Potter” (“Story” and “Growing Up”), PLUS the most amazing collection of Harry Potter memorabilia which can only be found in this very collection, this is most certainly worth the money. However, if you would prefer to pre-order the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection (as I am sure you would!) by 31 July, then you will only have to pay a low $349.96. This will be a one-in-a-lifetime chance, so do not forget about it or you will miss out on the most amazing, beautifully-designed merchandise EVER with hours of footage you have never-seen-before.

However, I have one important note to make…: I am not completely sure if you get ALL of the merchandise mentioned below in the box – this is not specified on any of the websites I have visited. What I AM sure about though, is that this is stuff you can only get in the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection.

Here are a few websites to scour to get an idea of what this is seriously worth:

The website http://wcbsfm.cbslocal.com/2012/03/09/the-harry-potter-wizards-collection-available-for-pre-order/ says that there will be a map of Hogwarts. I can’t be sure about that but it is probably true… It’s just that I have not really seen any proof for that but we will find out anyway! 🙂

This is what some of the things look like…:

Below are pictures of the exclusive authentic merchandise:

The Harry Potter Catalogue of Artefacts – This 48-page rigid book was created by MinaLima Design: Eduardo Lima, Miraphora Mina and Lauren Wakefield, former graphic designers on the Harry Potter films. Filled with their favorite props from the films designed in “shadow boxes,” this stunning catalogue can only be found in the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection.

Harry Potter Label Collection – This 32-page, 5” x 7” perfect-bound collection of prop labels from the films was designed exclusively for this collection by MinaLima Design. The book includes labels from potions, memory vials, Honeydukes and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.

Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection Certificate of Authenticity – This 8” x 10” certificate was designed by Mina Lima Design and inspired by the Hogwarts Express train ticket seen in the films. Each framable certificate is uniquely numbered.

Stuart Craig Sketch Prints – The collection includes a series of 5” x 7” concept sketches from Harry Potter production designer Stuart Craig. Each print bears his signature.

Concept Art Prints – These eight 8” x 10” concept art prints are suitable for framing. Printed on high-quality paper, these prints represent some of the finest concept art created for the films.

 Apparently there’s a map of Hogwarts, like I said above.

So hopefully that will keep you guys interested for a while! 🙂

The convenient thing is that it is my BIRTHDAY TOMORROW!!!!

B-) Maybe this might be ordered for my birthday, I’m not sure, but I did give a hint to my mum, although I am happy to pay for it myself… Anything to get it! 😀

Well I am now venturing into the beginning of the Prisoner of Azkaban, and speaking of that, I wouldn’t mind discovering my Patronus!

One way of discovering your Patronus is to Portkey to Facebook, log in and search for the Harry Potter Patronus app. Who knows what yours may be? It could be a stag like Harry and James Potter, or a doe like Severus Snape and Lily Potter, or a hare like Luna, an otter like Hermione, a weasel like Ron and Arthur Weasley, a horse like Ginny or if you get lucky maybe even a phoenix like Professor Albus Dumbledore.

Well that’s enough for now to keep you guys busy, so I will make another post later on in the week.

Butterbeer signing off!
