A TruffleShuffle exclusive: The Yellow Submarine!

‘First time I saw that nowhere man, that nobody, I knew he was somebody!’

As massive fans of the Beatles and the wonderful creation, The Yellow Submarine; we are over the moon to reveal this exclusive TruffleShuffle launch of Yellow Submarine clothing! Can you imagine the sheer excitement when we landed this exclusive? We were like teenage girls in the actual 60’s, seeing the actual band….that’s a lot of love, right? Paying homage to a great movie and album by the ultimate fab 4, we’re excited to have this collection available for all true fans to revel in. The silly humour, off the wall charm and psychedelic imagery still melts our heart decades on.

Show a heap of appreciation for the legendary band and awesome characters featured in the 1968 hit with our selection of Yellow Submarine t-shirts, Yellow Submarine art prints, mugs and more!

Pepperland isn’t the only cheerful, music loving Paradise to exist as a Beatles fan…if you don’t believe us, check out the products in this exclusive launch. A collection of Yellow Submarine t-shirts and more…made by fans, for fans.

‘I have always loved the Yellow Submarine film, the combination of crazy storyline, psychedelic animation, loveable (and terrifying) characters and of course a whole host of fantastic songs by the Beatles was a winning combination. Because of this it was a dream come true to get the chance to work on official Yellow Submarine merchandise!

With this initial range I really wanted to portray the unique animation style of the film with big bold colourful prints of the original movie poster as well as classic Beatles poses. A personal favourite is the metal sign featuring the line you can’t help but sing along to “All You Need Is Love”.

I hope I’ve managed to design something that will resonate with fans of the film and I’m really looking forward to working on some more Yellow Submarine goods! – 

James; Product Design and Development Manager

The 13th Doctor Has Been Revealed!

Now… unless you’ve been travelling off in far and distant lands with no contact from the outside world, or you’ve completely drained all the possible data from your phone, you miiiiight have spotted some online commotion surrounding the next Doctor Who.

Revealed on the BBC in a trailer at the end of the Wimbledon men’s singles final, fans were shown a glimpse of who will be cast as the 13th Doctor Who and we for one are pretty darn excited!

Yep! Best known for her leading role in the crime drama Broadchurch alongside former Doctor David Tennant and Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker will be taking over from Peter Capaldi after his final appearance in the 2017 Christmas special.
The first female actor to be playing the doctor since the show began back in 1963, the news has taken the online world and forums by storm as people share their reactions.

Sure to shake things up a bit and bring a whole new ‘dimension’ to the role, we’re pretty bloomin’ excited to see Doctor Who moving forward and we’re sure this will only help to inject much more global enthusiasm for the new series. Top work BBC!

Show writer Chris Chibnall had this to say “I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice. Her audition for The Doctor simply blew us all away. Jodie is an in-demand, funny, inspiring, super-smart force of nature and will bring loads of wit, strength and warmth to the role. The Thirteenth Doctor is on her way.”

Anyone else suuuuper excited for the next season of Doctor Who already??

We’re getting geared up and ready to live everything Dr Who with our big range of Doctor Who Merchandise including Clothing, Gifts, Bedding and more! Take a peep at some of our top picks for any Whovian…

Princess Diana of Themyscira Is Back! Our Top Reasons We’re Expecting Wonder Woman To Rock!

Ever since Hollywood took a perhaps.. fanatical interest in the weird and wonderful work of superheroes and the butt-kicking movies from DC and Marvel start to really stream out of the studios (10 superhero films planned between 2016 and 2020 alone!), the world has been crying out for our beloved heroine Wonder Woman to get the screen time she truly deserves. When we first heard the new back in late 2014, we knew our pleas had been heard. We knew this would quickly become something of a big deal and it’s not safe to say it truly has!

Taking on this movie was we’re sure no easy task with fans all over the world craving some serious Wonder Woman action and nothing but the very best would do.

With so much hype surrounding this latest dive into the superhero world already and the UK release just a few hours away (1st June 2017), we thought we would take some time to give you our personal Top 5 Reasons We’re Expecting Wonder Woman To Rock! Enjoy…

The Action…

Any superhero films these days needs a pretty decent amount of action and drama right? We’re expecting nothing less than all out war sprinkled with slow-motion shots, strong posses and a splash of Lasso of Truth action.

Directed by Patty Jenkins who is previously know for here film ‘Monster’, we don’t think that any action will become all encompassing though. Potentially making a nice chance form recent releases, we’re expecting any action to be carefully considered and choreographed without the usual sniff of 20minute fight scenes which would have really been just 5. Not action for action sake but only adding to the excitement levels and showcasing the characters strength and power.

The Wardrobe…

We’re sure you’ve seen the posters and clips by now revealing here stunning look for this picture. It’s a killer right?! Strong and true to the original, this outfit shows that you can be hard as nails, take on the best and win and look seriously glam doing it!

With a lot of her and other cast members styles taking on their warrior looks, they really looked to have nailed the fierce yet sophisticated image with lots of golds, and earth tones. Take a peep at some other snaps..

The Cast…

No superhero film would truly be complete without a star-studded line up right?! Wonder Woman is certainly sure not to disappoint on this front!

Wonder Woman – Gal Gadot
Israeli actress and model (and former Miss Israel!) best known for her work in the Fast and Furious films and later as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Gal can bring a high level of class, sophistication and can sure pack a punch.

Stebe Trevor – Chris Pine
LA born Chris cut his teach in the world of TV acting. He quickly rose to movie fame in 2004 ‘s Princess Diaries 2 and later in 2009 hit Star Trek. Since then he has continued his movie success being a part of Unstoppable (2010), This Means War (2012), People Like Us (2012), and the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). Often mischievous but charming, we’re hoping to see him bring out some of Princess Diana’s fin side.

General Antiope – Robin Wright
You might recognise her from 1987’s classic The Princess Bride where she played… The Princess Bride. Since then she has landed a number of roles in films including The Playboys (1992), Toys (1992), Forrest Gump (1994) and later a lead role in top TV hit House of Cards. Incredibly talented and a sure to bring some warrior attitude to the role.

Sir Patrick – David Thewlis
Professor Remus John Lupin! Sorry… be cool. Blackpool born actor, David made his way into the movie biz with roles in titles including Naked (1993), DragonHeart (1996), Restoration (1995), Black Beauty (1994) and later Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004). Looking forward to hee his next role in Wonder Woman for sure!

The Cinematography…

From the tailor and screen shots alone, we can see that the locations, landscapes and camera work is likely to bring something really special to the franchise. Superhero films have always been a good opportunity to get creative given their other worldly nature and bigger budgets, Matthew Jensen seems to have captured our imaginations to a tee with fantastic visuals and scenes.

Epic landscapes, amazing action close-ups and awe-inspiring wise shots with so much to breathe in really look to give this some depth and a mix of focus. Moody, colourful and grand… it’s got the lot!

We get to wear our Wonder Woman TShirts to the cinema…

Of course we love rocking our tees all year round, rain or shine, movie release or not, however getting to wear something from our childhood while supporting a modern adaptation really keep our fandom alive and well and is sure to raise a smile or two in the process. WIN WIN! Take a peep…

It’s not only clothing though! We’ve had sooo much buzz surrounding some of our Wonder Woman accessories it’s unreal! This Wonder Woman Bag has taken the site by storm and is such a great way to show your love in funky style. Our Wonder Woman notebooks are sure to let people know who’s boss either at school, college, uni or the boardroom. Take your pick!
