Merch Madness: Goblets, Gringotts, and Grand Openings

Welcome back to another edition of Merch Madness! Back in January, we told you about new gaming accessories from Numskull and Igloo, but this time there’s news of Japanese school bags and 20th-anniversary LEGO sets. There are also exciting reports about a new Universal Studios Store! Here’s a full roundup of all the latest Harry Potter merchandise!

 

Q-pot School Bags

Aspiring Japanese witches and wizards can go to school in style with these new backpacks from Q-pot. The bags were released on April 1, which means they won’t be available for the start of the 2021 Japanese school year. They will be ready for the 2022 school year, though! The bags come with a clear section in one of the pockets to show off your Hogwarts acceptance letter, detachable House colors so you can change them depending on how you feel, and an exterior wand holder for impromptu spell casting. The bag is designed to look like the brickwork of Platform 9 3/4 while simultaneously mimicking a chocolate bar to stay in keeping with Q-pot’s dessert branding, and it will retail for ¥110,000 (roughly equivalent to US$1,060). Whether attending Hogwarts or a Muggle school, this bag is sure to keep books, pens, and homework safe from any jinxes.

 

 

LEGO Rumors

We’ve seen plenty of rumors about LEGO’s 20th-anniversary sets, and now there are even more. There are rumors of collectible cards, similar to the cards seen in a Chocolate Frog pack. According to 1414falconfan on Instagram, each of the other rumored sets will include three random cards, meaning that collecting them all will be a hard task. We’re looking forward to seeing if anyone manages it!

Another LEGO rumor surrounds an expansion for 75978 Diagon Alley, which was missing Gringotts Bank, but now there are reports that it might get its own set. With its extensive tunnels, numerous vaults, and Ukrainian Ironbelly, a Gringotts LEGO set would have to be large and fairly expensive, but there are no confirmed details yet. We’ll keep you updated if these, or any other, rumors are true!

 

New Universal Studios Store

Universal Orlando Resort has opened its new Universal Studios Store at CityWalk. The store has plenty of space for witches and wizards to explore. The store even features new items, including a Harry Potter kitchen set and graphic T-shirts, which include designs from Shrek, Jurassic Park, and – of course – Harry Potter. We can’t wait to see more merch from the store, as well as your thoughts about it!

 

 

Merchoid Goblets

We have another exciting announcement for you: You can now preorder tankards and goblets from Merchoid! Each House has a tankard and goblet in its colors. The tankards’ handles all have their Houses’ animals, as do the stems of the goblets. Not only are there House-themed designs, but there is also a Death Eater design – which features the Dark Mark instead of an animal – and a design centered around the Golden Snitch. All goblets cost £32.99, while all tankards retail for £42.99. If you want to get your hands on one, hurry up! With every design being absolutely spellbinding, they are selling quickly. We do not doubt that they will be the perfect receptacle for a batch of pumpkin juice, a polyjuice potion, or your favorite muggle beverage,” as stated in the company’s press release.

I love Harry Potter, so writing articles about these is a dream. I also use these stories as inspiration for my DnD characters!
