Harry Potter Takes Flight With New Iron Studios 1:10 Art Scale StatueJose Lopez
Iron Studios takes you back to one of the best films in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, with the epic 1/10 scale statue of Harry himself riding Buckbeak. Sculpted with wings outstretched, Buckbeak and his passenger both look beautifully executed and the statue is available for pre-order now.
When Iron Studios captures a scene or a moment from a movie, they truly put their all into it. The sculpt on this piece is exceptional, bringing to life Harry and Buckbeak as they skim the lake of Hogwarts. The translucent base stand even gives the illusion of water, which is a nice touch.
The likeness of Daniel Radcliffe, based on his appearance in the third installment of the series, is spot on. The character’s joy and excitement is palpable in the portrait, which is not something you can say about most inanimate statues.
Let’s speak about the real star of the show, Buckbeak. The hippogriff’s feathers are sculpted so well that I’m having a hard time reminding myself that they aren’t real. The wingspan, just under 15 inches, will make for quite the attractive addition to collectors’ shelves. All in all, this piece impresses and will make any and all Potter fans happy.
The Iron Studios Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Harry Potter and Buckbeak 1/10 Art Scale Limited Edition Statue is available for pre-order now and is slated for a Q4, 2021 release.
“Buckbeak is a fantastic creature, known as a hippogriff, with a gray tinge. Its back, legs and paws are like those of a horse, and its head and its front are like a bird of prey. The fantastic creature even has long wings that allow it to fly. Enthusiastic and full of adrenaline, provided by his first flight riding through the skies of Hogwarts, the young wizard, Harry Potter, screams and opens his arms when his new friend, and mascot, slides his right front paw across the waters of a lake in a sweeping maneuver. This iconic scene from the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is also proudly replicated by Iron Studios in this highly detailed, limited edition statue.”
“Hagrid, the gentle Hogwarts game-keeper, introduced Buckbeak to Harry Potter in his first class of Treating Magical Creatures, and the young wizard’s admiration and respect for the hippogriff earned his trust. Subsequently, Buckbeak was sentenced to death for attacking Draco Malfoy, after the boy insulted him, but Harry and Hermione saved him and the animal helped escape Sirius Black, who is Harry’s godfather. After Sirius’ death, Buckbeak was inherited by Harry who left him again in Hagrid’s care, disguised with the name of Asafugaz.”
