Harry Potter Hagrid & Fluffy Premium Motion Statue from @FactoryEnt
August 3, 2018
“Just play a bit of music and he falls straight asleep… I shouldn’t have told you that!” -Rubeus Hagrid
Hagrid, the half-giant, has a predilection for pets that many might consider dangerous and Fluffy, a fearsome 3 headed dog, is one such hound! In the film adaptation of “Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone,” we learn that Hagrid buys Fluffy ‘from an Irish fella’ in the Leaky Cauldron. With this statue, we wanted to recreate the moment Hagrid made his way home with the latest addition to his ever-expanding menagerie. The statue captures Fluffy in his much smaller puppy state, before he matured to his enormous adult size. Hagrid is holding his lantern aloft to guide the way back to Hogwarts in the dark of night. Fluffy is portrayed sitting at his master’s feet, each of his three heads conveying a different expression, no doubt eager to curl up in front of a roaring fire, or perhaps listen to some soothing music. We understand he’s partial to the harp.

Hagrid stands 10” tall and is standing on a flagstone effect base. His lantern is powered by 2 x LR44 batteries, not included.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
