Update August 2023 – You may be looking for the new Coles Super Hero Builders.
After the public outcry over the previous years of very plastic collectible toys from Coles supermarkets in Australia, an emphasis on recycled and biodegradable toys and collectables hit both Coles and Woolworths in 2022.
In July 2022, both supermarket chains launched their competing collectibles – Disney Fixems at Woolworths and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts Magical Builders at Coles.
How Many Coles Magical Builders Are There?
There are 35 different characters in the set across the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises.
Coles Magical Builders Checklist 2022
Because supermarkets generally delete everything off their sites after a promotion is over, I like to archive as much as possible on my site so that anyone looking to complete their set later knows what to look for on eBay or Facebook Marketplace in order to complete their collection. Who knows maybe in 10 years’ time, long after you’ve recycled your original set you want to go back and buy these all over again.
#1 Harry Potter
On his eleventh birthday, Harry Potter learns that he has been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermione, brave the challenges of school life while facing the increasing threat of the Dark Forces. As Voldemort returns to power, Harry realises that only he can stop the Dark Lord.

A strikingly-handsome Prefect & Quidditch Seeker, Cedric Diggory appeared to have it all during his time at Hogwarts.

During her 5th year, she dated Cedric Diggory before he was murdered by Lord Voldemort, drastically affecting Cho’s demeanor.

Representing her school, Beauxbatons, Fleur Delacour was one of the four competing students in the 1994-1995 Triwizard Tournament. After she graduated, she started working at Gringotts bank where she met Bill Weasley. The couple bravely fought together in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998.

#19 Alastor Moody
‘Mad-Eye Moody’ was a very talented and powerful Auror and a key member of the Order of the Phoenix during the First and Second Wizarding Wars. He developed a ruthless reputation and was responsible for the imprisonment of many Dark wizards in Azkaban. His nickname was derived from his magical, electric-blue left eye which could see through just about anything.

A snowy owl, and Harry’s loyal companion. Owls have been helpmates to witches and wizards for many centuries.
Enslaved by the Malfoy family, Dobby was a house-elf that spent most of his life being treated poorly. However, to repay Dobby for his generous favours, Hogwarts student Harry Potter eventually tricks Dobby’s master into freeing him. Kind and loyal, Dobby was a rather progressive house-elf who expected payment for his work.
Highly intelligent and misunderstood, Hermione’s pet half-kneazle often assists the Trio on their adventures.

#27 Fantastic Beasts Dumbledore
Albus Dumbledore is the Defence Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where one of his former students was Newt Scamander. Newt has since become a trusted friend and protégé, though the always shrewd Dumbledore has no compunction about using Newt for a noble purpose.
#28 Queenie Goldstein
Queenie Goldstein is Tina’s vivacious and slightly quirky younger sister, who is undeniably beautiful, but there is much more to her than meets the eye. Queenie works a menial desk job at MACUSA in the same department as Tina, but she doesn’t have her sister’s driving ambition to be an Auror.
Newt’s beloved mischievous little Niffler. Though gentle and affectionate, Nifflers have a destructive nature when they get a glimpse of something shiny that they must collect. To quote Newt, hide the teaspoons (whenever Teddy’s around)!

Hermione dons an iconic Yule Ball look of a pink ruffled gown.
#35 Yule Ball Ron (Coles Express Exclusive)
The Yule Ball is an age-old tradition in the wizarding world, held for the first time in centuries during Ron’s fourth year at Hogwarts. In celebration of the Triwizard Tournament and the Christmas holiday, the students gather at an extravagant reception full of music, food and — to Ron’s dismay — dancing. Ron wore a now infamous traditional Yule Ball look: hand-me-down dress robes with pink lace trim that probably looked better on his Great Aunt Tessie.

How to get Bonus Coles Magical Builders: Tips & Hacks
Like any promotion for bonus toys at Coles or Woolworths, this Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts set is no different. You can get one free with every $30 spent in store, then you take your receipt to the staff member at the self-checkout or ask the person at the regular checkout if they are serving you there. But as usual, there are participating brands that give you an extra one if you buy one of their products.
It’s important to remember that you need to be spending $30 as well as buying a participating brand to qualify. So you cannot just buy one Colgate Toothbrush on its own in order to get your Harry Potter toy.
You only get 1 bonus pack per brand per transaction. If you are buying a few items from Arnott’s for example, to maximise your bonuses, try and split your shop into multiple $30+ transactions each with 1 of Arnott’s products separately.
Coles Express does not give bonuses for buying from these brands, it’s for the regular supermarket only, however, fuel purchases contribute towards these and given the cost of fuel these days, you’ll probably always get 2-3 per tank!
Shopping at Coles Online makes it very easy to collect these, they have a special link here that allows you to shop all participating brands and products. This is very convenient if you want to try and grab something from each brand you like before you do the rest of your regular shopping. However, there’s a maximum of 20 can be collected per transaction online. There is no limit for them in-store, so theoretically, you could buy 1 product from all 36 brands, then you also receive 1 for every $30 you spent in order to do this, plus 1 for every $30 spent on other products in general, meaning you’re really only limited by the balance of your bank account.
List of Participating Brands
Here is a list of participating brands to get your bonus:
- BOM (Breakfast on the Move by Coles)
- Darrel Lea
- Farmers Market
- Head & Shoulders
- L’OR Espresso
- Lilydale Free Range Chicken
- Master Foods
- Nature’s Kitchen (Coles Plant Based Eats)
- Pine O Cleen
- Rice Bubbles
- Purina Supercoat
- Tip Top Bakery
- John West
When Does Coles Magical Builders End?
This is an 8-week promotion running from 6 July 2022 until 30th August 2022 or while stocks last.
Who is the Rarest Character?
Most would consider the Yule Ball Ron to be the rarest in that you cannot get him in a regular packet, but from a Coles Express Service Station.
What to Do With Extra Builders?
If you have too many doubles that you no longer want, you can simply put them into your recycling bin (preferably in an envelope). You can also repurpose them into custom earrings, custom keychains or used in other arts and crafts.
