Hello Potterheads… In June 2015 ToyScoopers reviewed a Harry Potter wand replica sold by Noble Collections. If you missed that just click on the link above and you can watch the video. We received a comment on this video from one of our viewers “Jonathan C”. He said “Great video! do you know why Noble Collection and Universal studios wands differ even though Noble Collection makes both? At that stage we couldn’t really answer “Jonathan C” because we only had the Noble Collection wand. So ToyScoopers decided to do a bit of research of our own. After we confirmed that indeed Noble collections do manufacture both the wands, we ordered one directly from Universal Studios in order to compare their wand with the one we already have from Noble Collection. So here they are… This is the wand from Noble Collection, the one that we already reviewed, and this is the one we ordered from Universal Studios. Now the first notable difference that you can see is the wand from Universal Studios comes in a much narrower box than that of Noble Collections and the Universal Studio box has a sticker with the name “Harry Potter” written on it as appose to the one from Noble Collection that has a sticker with the numbers written on it. So let’s open them up see what’s inside. We’ll start of with the Noble Collection wand. The NC wand comes with a little certificate of authenticity. It reads, The product’s inspired by the world of Harry Potter. This document certifies that the enclosed wand is an authentic replica from the Warner Bros. Pictures Harry Potter film series. Please enjoy the unique offering rom The Noble Collection. So, as you can see the Noble Collection wand’s display case looks exactly like the one from the movie it even has the chiffon ribbon covering the wand, as well as the red/burgundy velvet lining inside. The velvet is really soft and covers a sponge casing that keeps the wand secured and protected. The wand can be easily removed and placed back. Now on the other hand if you look at the wand from Universal Studios. The wand only comes with a teeny tiny note saying: “Fragile collectible wand – not a toy”. The interior is brown, and the wand is laying inside a hard casing that is covered with something meant to look like velvet. It has this little hard plastic cover over I guess for more protection. The wand comes out fairly easy, but it’s a pain to try and put it back. It took me a few tries to figure out how to twist and turn it to go back in. So from my point of view the interior of the Noble Collection’s wand is far more superior than that of the one of the Universal studios wand, both in looks and protection of the wand. So let’s compare the actual wands with each other, and see what we get. Just by looking at them, these two wand look exactly the same. Their color is the same, their paintwork is the same, the detailing on the handles are the same, and they even have the same Trademark stamp on them. But just to be sure I did a few measurements of my own. They are both 14 inches in length, well, just a teeny, tiny bit less than 14 inches, and they weigh 83 grams. ToyScoopers has come to the conclusion that these two wands are indeed the same thing. Maybe “Jonathan C” has bought an earlier version at Universal Studios, but the wand we received from Universal Studios and the wand we bought from Noble Collections are identical. So which Harry Potter wand will ToyScoopers recommend you buy? Well if it goes on looks alone, the one from Noble Collection is a winner. I mean it looks exactly same as the one in the movie. And even if you have to recon in the price we paid almost double for the wand at Universal studios than what we paid at Noble Collections. So Noble Collection wins again. Hope you find this helpful.
