Collectors of Harry Potter memorabilia take note! You need to have this super size Vinyl Pop Basilisk in your collection! The 6″ figure is larger than regular Pop figures and is an exclusive design. It is # 64 in the Pop Harry Potter series.
The Basilisk is described as “the King of Serpents” and the creatures are created by hatching a chicken’s egg under a toad. Basilisks can live for up to one thousand years and grow to a huge size. They have a deadly stare and even looking indirectly at one (in a reflection) leads to a person being instantly petrified. Clearly these creatures are brought to life to be evil and in the Chamber of Secrets, the Basilisk has been hidden under Hogwarts by Tom Riddle (aka Voldemort).
The large size of the Basilisk is represented in the larger size of this exclusive figure. It has large golden eyes, lots of sharp teeth, and a snake-like tongue and body. People who speak Parseltongue (the language of snakes) are able to communicate with the Basilisk, but only Tom is able to command it. Eventually Harry kills the Basilisk with the sword of Gryffindor.
Don’t miss this opportunity to add the Basilisk figure to your Harry Potter fandom! If you’re shopping for a Slytherin, this is also a great gift idea for Christmas or a birthday!
