POP! Figure – Gandalf and Gwaihir

Getting an email about this new POP figure is something that really excited me! As you should be well aware by now I am a massive Lord of the Rings fan and Gandalf is one of the greatest characters of all time. I really feel this needs to be my first big special POP figure!

“I would bear you, whither you will, even were you made of stone.” – Gwaihir to Gandalf

Gwaihir the Windlord, swiftest and greatest of the Eagles of Middle Earth has swooped in and rescued his long-time friend Gandalf and his companions on many an occasion.

Happy 80th Birthday Sir Ian McKellen!

You are probably already aware that I am a huge fan of Sir Ian McKellen and the legendary actor turns 80 years old today! With no signs of slowing down having been in the West End last year, still starring in films and currently on an epic UK tour to celebrate turning 80! I will be heading to see it in August when he comes to Newcastle!

This blog post is part of The Film That Started It All Blogathon on Let’s Go To The Movies. Getting people to really have a look at a film that they believe started a true love, passion and obsession towards films. I wanted to make sure we focus on the good and get away from the negative comments mainly on Twitter, love film!

I guess I could have combined the whole trilogy but I am going to only focus on that first part and the start of a truly epic journey for cinema watching and then the extended edition released on DVD and now I own on Blu-Ray as well, hoping for 4K UHD one day!
