It seems that the licensed pieces are appealing to many of our younger collectors these days. They all love Harry Potter™ which continues to be a global phenomenon with millions of books sold over the last two decades. This year we added the 'Astronomy Tower' (A29974) to nestle against the 'Great Hall and Tower' (A29970) introduced in July, 2018 creating the gorgeous centerpiece of the Hogwarts kingdom. And like with the first piece, the detail that Village artist Paul Lundberg was able to add using the high quality resin and hand painted details is spectacular! We are also adding the 'Hogwarts’ Express' (6002314), an LED lit train that will carry Harry and his friends to school; and 'The Burrow' (A29975), the Weasley’s family home.
Our collection includes the most popular newspaper building in Metropolis — 'The Daily Planet' (A30017). Straight from DC Comics™ this impressive skyscraper with its golden globe on the top also features the man of steel himself, Superman, who works as a humble reporter by day, but changes into our favorite super-hero whenever trouble strikes and his help is needed. The animated figure circles the top looking to maintain peace in Metropolis. It will be a great addition to your collection.
Another DC favorite, Batman, is also making an appearance in the collection with two lighted pieces and an accessory. 'Wayne Manor' (A30028) includes the figural accessory along with the manor gate. 'The Batcave' (6003757) is LED lit and has a separate Batmobile that can be placed at the cave entrance of taken on the road to fight evil.
