The Funko POP Market UK Facebook Group

There's a new Facebook Funko group in town

We have just launched a new Facebook group which is devoted to Funko POP collectors, fans and people who are looking to sell their personal collection. Itís a great place to discuss, trade, sell, buy and extend your collection. Whatís the name of this fabulous group we have created I hear you cry, The Funko POP Market UK 

Funko POP UK Facebook Group

We have created this group because we had so many new Funko POP figures, offers and posts that it started to take over our corporate Facebook page. Weíve created one central location where you can all join in and discuss whatís new in the world of Funko. There is so much going on that itís hard to keep up to date with everything, our group has only be open for a few days and already has over 250 members. Some of which have been collecting for years others are quite new to collecting and are just finding out how addictive these collectable figures and bobbleheads really are.

Itís a great place if you are looking to buy cheap pops as well as exclusives. Sometimes we get very few exclusives in stock it isnít worth us uploading and creating a page on our site to take it down a day or so later, so these get posted in this group. We offer some great prices too only advertised by us in this page, to keep you guys coming back for more. After we hit 250 members in just a few days we released our first offer, an exclusive clear Predator for just £10.

And itís not just us that offer the brand new range of Funko POPs, there are often people selling their personal collection including some really rare items that have now been retired or San Diego Comic Con exclusives from the past few years. You will find rarer chase figures that are not always easy to find anywhere else, especially without paying the Earth for them.

We also introduce any new Funko lines including the newly released Dorbz, Idolz, Mopeez, Fabrikation, Blox, FunkoVision and Funko Force.

So, whether you are an inbox collector or out of box collector, new to collecting or long term fan, you need to check out what this group has to offer. As you can see itís well worth becoming a member at what have you got to lose?

New Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Bobblehead Statues

So over the last year the main thing everyone has been talking about in the Marvel bobblehead collecting world are Funko POP Vinyls, we all love them and can't get enough of them right? Well there is a new kid on the block interms of Marvel bobbleheads and we have just added them to the website for pre-order. You are going to love these too.

Although the range of Funko bobbleheads is amazing and the latest Avengers Age of Ultron POP's (in particular the Iron Man with blue jetstream, we love this here at The Film Cell. I think everyone working here took one of those home the day they came in) are probably better than any previous Avengers POPs. We think the below bobbleheads will give them a bit of a run for their money. This new series of Marvel bobbleheads statues are slightly bigger and a tad more expensive but the paint jobs on these are fantastic. Oh and guess what, they have a Hulkbuster statue and the best thing is you don't have to sign up for any monthly subscriptions to get hold of one of these bad boys. So lets take a look at each in a bit more detail...

Age of Ultron Bobblehead Figures

Each of these fantastic little figurines comes presented on a Marvel Avengers stand for easy display. The stand features the Avengers logo and gives these pieces a classy little finishing touch. So let firstly take a look at the Iron Man bobblehead. The Iron Man figurine comes with enlarged head and feature the full body armour from the movie. Take a look at the below image for a full picture and to see the fantastic detail that has gone into these. Click the images to be taken to more info.

Iron Man BobbleheadAge of Ultron Captain America FigurineAvengers Thor Bobble Head

Next up we have the Captain America bobblehead, this is sure to be popular with it's enlarged head, features the Captain America suit with iconic shield. Add this to your car dashboard and what him wobble away to your favourite movie sound tracks. The Thor figure finishes of the set of 5" or 13cm tall collectables, he comes complete with War Hammer and over enlarged Thor helmet. If only the hammer emitted a beam of light as that would be awesomee. Display all three of these fantastic pieces together in your display cabinet and every Marvel fan will be envious of what you have found. But wait this is just the beginning. Wait for it... Next up we have the Hulkbuster!!

Avengers Hulkbuster Figure

The Hulkbuster bobblehead is going to be hugely popular and so get your pre-orders in as soon as you can to guarantee stock, we think there will be a struggle to keep up with demand on this one. We have ordered in a good quantity of these so we just hope that this is enough to go around. The Hulkbuster is larger than the above figures standing at 15cm tall. It slightly more expensive than the others but this is going to be well worth it. Anything to do with the Hulkbuster is going to go mad after the movie is released and looking at the trailers so far you can see why. This bobblehead has all the detail of the full size character but has been displayed in this characteristic form. Set in the fighting pose to attack the Incredible Hulk at any moment and features the enlarged Iron Man suit ready to bust the Hulk. Will he succeed? Well looking at our next figure its a hard one to judge.

Incredible Hulk Wobbler

The Hulk stands at 14cm so slightly bigger than the 3 above but not quite as big as the Hulkbuster. This one has only just been released and at the time of writing this article the images are just a representation of what they are going to look like and the final product may still change slightly. Hulk is featured in a pose ready to defend himself from Tony Stark and his technical machine he also looks pretty damb awesome in this representation. Take a look at the photos and let us know what you think.

Thanks for reading!!

Top 8 Hobbit Battle of 5 Armies Prop Replicas

So you have probably gotten around to seeing the last instalment of the Hobbit franchise by now, what did you think? It seems that some Tolkien fans were happy with the outcome while others think it should never have been split into 3 movies. We donít want to spoil anything for those who havenít seen it so we are not about to review the movie. However we thought it would be a nice idea to review some of the merchandise that feature in The Hobbit Battle of 5 Armies.

We have pulled together our top 8 prop replicas to feature in the movie below with a short description of each. There are loads more products available on our website from all 3 Hobbit movies as well as the Lord of the Rings trilogy but here our The Film Cellís favourite.

Galadriel Headdress

One of the finest Hobbit prop replicas to feature in the movie trilogy is the Headdress of Galadriel with itís elvish leave style pattern, it also comes complete with blue cushion to display.

Dwarven Coin Set

This Dwarven coin set features 5 coins from the treasure hoard beneath the lonely mountain, as guarded by Smaug. Each coin can be removed from the collectors box for further inspection but can only be used as legal tender in Middle Earth.

Kili Dwarf Sword

Kiliís Dwarven sword has to appear in our top 8, measuring 72cm this Hobbit sword features a solid stainless AUS-6 steel blade, solid metal and hard acrylic handle with leather wrapped hilt parts. Authentically "agedĒ and "battle wornĒ with a distressed look and feels like you own the real movie prop.

Hobbit One Ring

The One Ring from the Hobbit is an authentic prop replica the magic ring found by Bilbo Baggins in the first instalment of the movie trilogy. This is before it is left to Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and before the elvish script is found running around the outside.

Middle Earth Map

Next up we have the Map of the Lonely Mountain, which Bilbo uses in the latest movie and stores in his memory box.

Hobbit Sting Sword

Possibly the most popular of our Hobbit and Lord of the Rings swords is Sting, the sword given to  Bilbo Baggins that lights up in the movie when Orcs are close.

Buy Gandalf Staff

No wizard is complete without his trusty staff, this full size replica of Gandalf's Staff is the illuminating version from Noble. At over 5 feet in height this is a full size prop replica, the crystal at the top of the staff also lights up.

Arkenstone Replica

The Arkenstone, AKA the 'Heart of the Mountainí is now available in a necklace form. This stone can send dwarves mad but has no effect on humans fortunately.
