Harry Potter - Snape

Severus Snape is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. In the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, he is one of the primary antagonists. As the series progresses, Snape's motivation grows unclear and Rowling does not fully reveal his true loyalties until the end of the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Snape appears in all seven novels of the series.

Over the course of the series, Snape evolves from a malicious and partisan teacher who unfairly punishes Harry and other students he dislikes (while favouring Slytherin students) into a pivotal character of considerable complexity and moral ambiguity. Rowling has described him as "a gift of a character".

This is another fine figure with a great likeness from NECA. Like most of their products, the appeal of this figure is going to be stronger for adults than children. I would say the play value is fairly low given the limited articulation. That said, what actually prompted me to review was the fact that I noticed this particular figure is for sale from Big Bad Toy Store. Great business! I order most of my toys and figures from BBTS. However, in this case, they received quite a few flawed Snape figures with horrible paint applications on the face. They were very generous with me as someone who pre-ordered the figure and was unhappy, but I felt it important to forewarn others that this particular figure from BBTS might not meet expectations. They had no other Snape figures in stock that were without the flaw--nothing to exchange. I would email prior to ordering and question the quality of this particular figure from this series.
