Newt Scamander has been immortalised as a Funko Pop! figure, coming to San Diego Comic-Con later this month.

If you’re off to San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) this year, you might need to make room in your magical suitcase for a certain Magizoologist.

Newt Scamander, the hero of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, has been made into an adorable Funko Pop! figure that’s making its debut at Comic-Con. Little Newt even has his trusty Hufflepuff scarf and magical suitcase with him!

And considering Newt’s love of beasts, it’s rather fitting that three magical creatures are also coming to SDCC. The Cornish pixie, Mandrake and Grindylow are exclusive to Comic-Con in this limited edition Pop! Minis three-pack.

It’s a bit of a Comic-Con tradition that guests at the convention are able to get their hands on some special new treats early. We can’t say we aren’t just a teensy bit jealous. The creatures stay exclusive to Comic-Con but Newt will be available from other retailers very soon.

San Diego Comic-Con 2016 starts 20 July and runs until 24 July.
