Get a Jump on the Holiday Season With Funko’s Harry Potter, Pokémon, and The Office Advent Calendars
If you want your Christmas decorations to better reflect your favorite fandom this year, Funko has pre-orders up for a new line of Advent calendars based on iconic pop culture franchises like Harry Potter, Pokémon, and The Office.
Like a traditional Advent calendar, the Funko versions feature 24 doors that you can open to unveil a special gift inside—but instead of getting some chocolate or a stale candy cane, you'll find Pocket Pop! figurines of your favorite characters. The Office calendar ($40), for example, features 2.25-inch figures of Pam, Darryl, Michael, and the delightfully cringey dinner party version of Jan, who's decked out with a glass of wine and a Serenity by Jan candle. This calendar is due to ship on November 22.
Whether you consider the Harry Potter movies a Halloween or Christmas pastime, this Advent calendar ($40) can help you look forward to both since it has a release date of October 22. As expected, you'll find the main trio of Harry, Ron, and Hermione within these doors, but you’ll also find Pop! figurines of Professor Severus Snape; Hagrid’s faithful dog, Fang; and a winged thestral from the Forbidden Forest.
And with the Pokémon Advent calendar ($40), you'll get 24 different characters, including Pikachu, Vaporeon, and silver variants of Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. This one is also due out on November 22.
You can pre-order the Harry Potter, Pokémon, and The Office Funko Advent calendars on Amazon for $40, which is 33 percent off their standard price. If you can’t get enough Advent calendars this holiday season, make sure to check out the newly released ones from LEGO.
