Wow, this is a bit of a throwback post! I can’t remember the last time I sat down to write one of these posts and I’ve missed it! I promised myself that I would slowly to embrace the fandom side of my blog and this is the start. These are never my popular posts but, as long as I still love, I don’t mind.
If you’re new to my blog and haven’t seen this little series of mine, let me introduce it to you.
As the title suggests, this is me looking at some of the new nerdy things that are either recently released or coming soon. I literally could spend hours picking out items from each fandom. There’s just so many! I mainly choose the ones that I love the most and focus on those.
LEGO Room of Requirements
Out of all the Harry Potter films, Order of the Phoenix has to be one of my favourites!
Not only do we get more scenes of Fred and George, but we’re introduced to Luna Lovegood! She’s literally the best character in the whole series and pretty similar to me. The LEGO sets are always amazing so I’m loving the look of what they have included with this set: Harry, Hermione and Luna with patronuses!
Patronuses are definitely the in-thing right now! Have you seen the Patronus funko pops?!
Fierce Heroines: Inspiring Female Characters in Pop Culture (Rosie Knight)
The clue to what this is in the name! It’s a 160-page book chatting about some of the top fictional heroines that we love! There’s around 75 females that Rosie chats about from Becky Jackson (Glee) to Toph Beifong (Avatar: The Last Air-Bender)!
This is already on my pre-order list because it has everything I adore in a nerdy book.
- Strong females
- Comic-book illustrations
- Fun Facts
Torchwood Institute t-shirt
Hands up, Whovians. Who else wished that they could have joined Torchwood to work alongside Captain Jack, Gwen (love Eve Myles) and the Doctor of course!
I know I did!!
It’s been a while since I’ve watched the whole series so I might have to have a marathon of the show. This t-shirt is so minimalistic that it can go with a lovely pair of jeans! The Torchwood fandom is still alive, everyone! We’re just waiting for a phone-call…
Minnie Collectible (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad)
I’ve only recently discovered that there are collectible Mickey and Minnie plushies and, after seeing the Series 9 collection for next month, I may have found a new collectible!!
Look at Minnie in that gorgeous dress! I also love the ears too!
Just when you think we’ve said goodbye to the Avengers, they come back!! I refuse to let them go and I’m happy to let Marvel do their thing! After seeing the trailer for it last year, I’ve been excited to see if it can top Spider-Man! I mean…this has Ms. Marvel!!
Time of the Daleks board-game
Another hands-up for you, Whovians! Who has secretly wished that they could be a time-lord and go on adventures through space and time.
According to the description, this is going to be a semi-cooperative game. I have zero clue what they mean by that but it sounds intriguing either way!
…you become one of four regenerations of the Doctor, travelling through time and space to stop the Daleks from erasing the Doctor from time and taking over the universe.
Wonder-Woman Breast Cancer Awareness
You know I love a good funko pop! I have quite the little collection of them in my office, but I love when these collectibles support an amazing course. DC seem to have released some rather special pink versions of Batman, Wonder-Woman, Harley Quinn and Superman to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
If you’ve heard of Girls Aloud, then you may have heard the news that Sarah Harding has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s such an awful disease to hit both men and women. I actually lost my grandma to it so this is personal!
Himiko Toga & Midoriya Izuko
Something you might not know about me is that I’m a big anime nerd. Okay…so maybe it’s not surprising that the girl who runs a fandom blog loves another kind of fandom. There are so many animes that I adore watching such as Sword Art Online, Snow White with the Red Hair and Cardcaptor Sakura.
One of my favourite series has to be My Hero Academia!
It follows a young boy called Midoriya Izuko who lives in a world where there are heroes and villains. These people have super-powers/quirks that allow them to protect people or take lives. Midoriya always wanted to be a hero but, as he didn’t have a quirk, he was told that it wouldn’t happen. That was until he met the world’s number 1: All-Might! He gave him the chance to have a quirk and attend the best hero school around…U.A High.
Midoriya’s (or Deku as he gets called) funko pop shows him before joining high-school and has him carrying a notebook where he analyses heroes like the adorable little nerd he is. The other funko is of a villain girl called Toga. She’s insane!! She adores blood (not a vampire) and actually can transform into anyone if she drinks a cup of their blood. She may be mad but she’s awesome! Haha.
LoungeFly ‘The Child’ Back-Pack
No touchy the child!
Star Wars fans and the world fell in love with Baby Yoda/The Child when The Mandalorian came out and I adore! He’s such a little sass-pot who is just like a human toddler. He can’t stop touching things that he’s not supposed to and looks adorable. The only difference is that The Child has crazy powers…just like Yoda.
Love how cute this mini back-pack is and the teeny frog charm on the zip!
RWBY: Fairytales of Remnant (E.C Meyers)
2020 may be hell-on-earth but I have to admit that it’s brought a lot of different RWBY content. We’ve had the sequel to ‘After The Fall’, lots of merchandise from Rooster Teeth, Volume 8 on the horizon and now some fairytales from the world of Remnant!
Fans of Rooster Teeth’s hit animated series RWBY will want to pore over every page of this gorgeously illustrated collection of twelve short fairy tales! In addition to classic tales from the show, such as The Story of the Seasons and The Tale of the Two Brothers, readers can immerse themselves in eight never-before-told stories from RWBY’s show writers. Vibrant artwork throughout completes the collection, offering new insights into the strange, beautiful and dangerous world of Remnant. This deluxe edition also happens to be the personal copy of Professor Ozpin, complete with a foreword from the former Beacon headmaster himself. Fans won’t want to miss this must-have collection, sure to reveal more secrets about RWBY and the stunning world of the show!
I’m so excited to get the physical copy of this book since it’s going to be illustrated, but also to get the audiobook which will be read by Professor Ozpin’s voice actor Shannon McCormick!
Wizards (Tales of Arcadia) iPhone Case
It was only a matter of time before I showed more of my kiddy side. For the last few years I’ve loved watching the different worlds involving the town of Arcadia: Trollhunters, 3Below and now Wizards. This final series follows Merlin’s apprendice Douxie as he tries to protect the world from the powers of darkness with some familiar faces from the other two shows.
I’ve never bought anything from Redbubble but I just fell in love with this iPhone case with Douxie, Jim and Krel! The main boys!! It was designed by the talented Kasuouh!
What fandom things are you waiting to be released?
