Ever just want to hang out with Snape? Well now you can, thanks to the new character standees now available at the WB Harry Potter shop. Standing just over 6 feet tall is this cardboard cutout of Alan Rickman as Snape, or this of Michael Gambon as Professor Albus Dumbledore. Also available is this  5 foot 6 inch cutout of actor Dan Radcliffe as Harry Potter. Be sure to check out too the new Half-Blood Prince group poster, here.

Finally, Hot Topic continues to unveil their new Harry Potter line. Today they have added several new bags, including a Gryffindor Quidditch Bludgers bag, a vivid Gryffindor colors striped Hogwarts Messenger Bag, a white Hogwarts wallet and a bright red Gryffindor Shield Tshirt. You can see their entire line to date via this link, with much more due over the coming days and weeks before the release of the film next month.

I remember when Hot Topic had stuff for all 4 Houses. Now it’s all Gryffindor or Slytherin. :(

I wished they carried more HP merchandise at other stores… It’s too hard to find.

Oooh, a life-size Snape!!! Yummie. I want one. Let the Lord be with the people at my local Movie Theatre, because if I see one, I’ll really, really want it and the Snape poster.

Okay, I so want that Snape cutout, even if it’s a bit “stalkerish”. I mean, my best friend in high school had one of James Dean – it’s the same thing, right? lol – My question is, though, how the heck do they ship something like that? I would love to see my UPS man carrying a 6ft cardboard Snape under his arm!

I could have alot of fun, propping Snape up in unexpected places to scare my roommates. The guy I live with already has a Bruce Forsythe cardboard cut out and I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve found it in my bed or in the shower. It scares me. This is a genius idea

I wonder if the cast shops are Hot Topic. That’d be hilarious to see Alan Rickman walking by wearing a Hufflepuff jacket! HA!

Or if they had cutouts of themselves…..hee hee!

Now i know that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were right in that South Park Episode… all the things i saw by Hot Topic are a softer version of an emo style.
I feel lucky in Italy there aren’t hot topic stores…
