Star Ace has been steadily improving on its 1/8 scale line. They’ve done good work on the Harry Potter series and now turn to the spin-off with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. First up is the main character Newt Scamander.
Newt Scamander is the Magizoologist and author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them who gets caught up in a battle against the evil wizard, Grindelwald. This Eighth Scale Collectible Figure features an authentic likeness of Newt as portrayed by Eddie Redmayne and features an authentic period costume, his special case, wand, book, bowtruckle, niffler and a baby niffler.
Here’s the figure breakdown:
- Each head sculpt is specially hand-painted
- Five (5) interchangeable hands:
– One (1) pair of open hands
– One (1) pair of hands for holding his case or book
– One (1) right hand for holding his wand

I’m curious how extensive Star Ace will get with The Crimes of Grindelwald line.
They’ve also got a Grindelwald figure up for pre-order, but it’d be cool to see more of the characters including Tina, Credence and Dumbledore.
