Tomb Raider Temple of Osiris Lara Croft Statue

What a fantastic statue.Produced by Gaming Heads, this 45cm Lara Croft statue is made from polystone resin. Highley Limited to just 1,000 pieces worldwide.

Our Collectable thoughts? May set you back a few hundred pounds but a good investment at that low limited number. Will go up in price in a few months.

We had 6 of those 1,000 and with only 2 left and I'm seriously considering taking one of those home.

*** Aliens Series 2 Has Been Discontinued ***

Aliens Series 2 is now discontinued

The second series in NECA Toys successful re-launch of our Aliens product line brings collectors three amazing new figures. has now been discontinued.

Sad to see this one go as it's one of my favourites, also after someone explained to me at comic who the Craig Windrix figures was. (based on the real life brother of one of Neca's sculptors who sadly died of cancer.

So no more series 2, once sold out we can't get any more as NECA is no longer producing them.

This series includes my personal favourite of the 35th anniversary 1979 Alien movie Xenomorph, the "blue" Alien Warrior and of course the hart felt Craig Windrix figure.

You can still buy the full set of Aliens series 2 or individually while stock lasts. If you only want 1, get the Masked Scar it's way more popular and stock is running low.

Rocky

A lot of people know that Sylvester ‘Sly’ Stallone wrote Rocky, but what a lot of people don’t realise is how closely the protagonist’s life mirrors its star’s. It was a chance question on the way out after an unsuccessful casting call that gave Stallone the chance he needed to get his script in front of people...Read the full article of Rocky Movie Facts

Birmingham Comic Con March 2017

Birmingham Comic Con March 2017

Well Birmingham Comic is now over and it made us all happy to get out there and meet so many of you, just like you we love talking about the Alien movies, retro stuff and all things collectable.

It's a a very long weekend for us, starting the week before sorting out all the cool things we are going to take along to the show. On the Friday we setup from about 11am, we finished at 6pm and went to the pub for a well earned pint.

Saturday arrives and we park a mile away from the show like you guys and make the long walk with a life size E.T. and Gremlin stunt puppet. After many photos from onlookers on the way we get into the show and wait for it to open.

While we wait i get the chance to walk around and see some exciting things. With the main signings opposite our stand we see Starsky and Hutch, Billy Piper and Red Dwarf cast will be signing over the weekend, also there is that red Gran Torino Starsky Car parked here.

Cosplay

Iv been to a few Comic Cons including London and Toronto Canada but i can say Birmingham Comic Con has some fantastic cosplay, way more people dressed up than London i think.

A very exciting show, I feel really at home during the Comic Con weekend with all the likeminded people around.

See you all in November

Top 10 Harry Potter Moments

1) “You’re a wizard, Harry” – this probably has to be my favourite scene in the Philosopher’s Stone.  It’s when Harry first gets introduced to the wizarding world and where his friendship with Hagrid is first established.

2) When Harry and Ron stole the flying car in the Chamber of Secrets, I just think it’s the true beginning of their mischievous ways

3) Harry finally unleashes his patronus in Prisoner of Azkaban and fights off hundreds of Dementors, which earlier in the film we were led to believe was his father.  This spell proves his immense magical ability that we would see progress throughout the series.

4) The graveyard scene in Goblet of fire – we finally got to meet the big, dark, bad in the flesh.  Also poor old Cedric was murdered, which just started the dark turn the series was about to take.

5) The prophecy which we are shown in Order of the Phoenix, is where we finally learn Voldemort’s obsession with Harry.  “Either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives” so basically Harry was going to have to fight himself and risk dying in the process.  This really set the tone for the following chapters of the series.

6) Let’s not forget the bombshell that the chosen one could have actually been Neville Longbottom – both born at the end of July and both had parents in the Order of the Phoenix.  This is possibly why Neville turned into such a badass in the Deathly Hallows, and of course not forgetting he destroyed the final horcrux (Nagini) leading to the destruction of Voldemort.

7) Dumbledore dies in the Half Blood Prince – I don’t have much else to say about that.

8) We finally see Snape’s secret in the Deathly Hallows, which shows us he was the hero we always hoped he would be.  Always.

9) “Come on Tom, let’s finish this the way we started it… Together!”  This just highlights how unafraid of Voldemort Harry really is.  The only other person to ever refer to him as Tom was Dumbledore.

10) Dobby in the Deathly Hallows was so much better than when we first saw him in Chamber of Secrets – “Dobby has no master. Dobby is a free elf, and Dobby has come to save Harry Potter and his friends!”.
