Second chapter of the quartet of albums that Panini offers for 2023 on the world of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts. After the houses of Hoghwarts it’s time for magical creatures from the movies. Not very easy to write something new compared to the review of the first album and probably it will be the same for the next two.
The lack of particular novelties is not always a negative aspect, in this case, for example, it continues the good intentions of the first album. Good paper quality, one hundred stickers which are actually two hundred to attach. Above average photographic quality of the stickers.
The internal captions are interesting, sometimes reduced to give all the space to the stickers, but we still invite you to read the texts and perhaps answer the occasional quizzes that you find on some pages. Don’t know what to say? No problem, correct on the last page and find the answers. Don’t peek first though!
In addition to the 100 stickers, the presence of 10 limited edition cards has also been confirmed, which can be found inside the starter pack, the blister packs and the special box on sale only at comic book stores. A wise advice is to keep the rhythm of the releases and not wait for the end, although all the packets of the four albums should be available until the end of the year, the overlapping of the collections could have a significant impact from an economic point of view.
Small grumble that we would have preferred to avoid, opening a blister pack of 5 sachets we already found ourselves with several doubles. On a collection of just 100 stickers easier that can happen but if there was a way to avoid it, it would be much appreciated.
