For The Honor of Greyskull! New She-Ra & He-Man Clothing In Stock!

I am Adora, He-Man’s twin sister and defender of the Crystal Castle. This is Spirit, my beloved steed. Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and said: “For the honor of Greyskull!”. I am She-Ra!

From the moment we would hear these words, we knew our day was about to get a whole lot better! Crouched inches from the TV, crossed legs and eyes wider than ever, we were transported to Eternia to discover what He-Man, She-Ra and of course Skeletor and the gang had in store for us. Bliss!

Never one to let our passions from the past stay in the past, we’re always keen to create amazing new designs inspired by some of our favourite characters which is exactly what we’ve done again with our latest collection of She-Ra TShirts! Let’s take a look…

Autobots, Roll Out! Our Top Reasons We’re Hyped For Transformers: The Last Knight…

Transformers fans rejoice!  This week sees the release of the long awaited new film Transformers: The Last Knight and expectations are suitably high!

Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.

Any other plot details are being kept under lock and key but trailers of Optimus Prime fighting Bumblebee has got everyone talking, why are they at war with each other? Could the leader of the Autobots have turned to the dark side?  There have been multiple tag lines used on various promotional material for this new film such as ‘Rethink your heroes’, ‘Every legend hides a secret’ and ‘For One World To Live, The Other Must Die’.  These cryptic clues have got us very excited and we can’t wait to find out the true story!

It’s been reported that this is the last Transformers film that Michael Bay will direct and also rumoured to be following him out the door is Mark Wahlberg, so will the next film follow a new direction?  Either way, Transformers and Michael Bay go hand in hand so enjoy his last film in the franchise while you can!  He recently said in an interview “I’ve done it enough, and I’ve had a great time doing it. I’m going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you’re ahead, you know.” which all sounds positive for an action packed film!

You can show your appreciation for Transformers with some of the amazing Transformers TShirts and Cartoon TShirts on our site!  Perfect for rocking up the cinema in!

If you’re off to see the film this weekend we hope you enjoy it and let us know what you thought!

TruffleShuffle’s Top Tips For Pokémon GO!

So it’s official, Pokémon GO is here, and…well… it is absolutely HUGE. Like bigger than the Death Star big! Frankly, if you’re not using your phone to walk around and catch virtual creatures in your area we have no idea why you even have a phone!

With so much buzz surrounding this groundbreaking AR adventure game (for those who never discovered Ingress at least), it seems Pokémon is right back at the top of the pile and bigger and better than ever. Talk about a comeback! From battling it out on our trusty Game Boy colour back in the day to talking stats and evolutions with friends down the pub, Pokémon has always brought people together and turns out is still as cool as ever.

Now it’s back in our lives in style, we figured we would pop together some really cool and useful tips that we have picked up along the way. Who knows they might just give your game a little boost! For free! Sit back and check out our Top Tips for Pokémon Go!

You can grab Pikachu as your starter Pokémon

Yep believe it! Pretty much THE face of the entire Pokémon empire, Pikachu can be grabbed right from the get go. Perhaps not so useful for all you eager players out there already catching your way through the levels, but as a new player when you’re asked by the Professor to catch you very first Pokémon you will be met with some old faces including Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. However! If you walk away from them (literally walk away), and continue to walk away from them until your phone vibrates the three classic stater Pokémon will appear again. Walk away again, and repeat 3 to 5 times and eventually Pikachu should appear.

When exploring, vary your surroundings

So just like you would fine in the real world, different Pokémon can be found in different areas. So for some examples, Rock types can be found near Quarries, Water types can be found near….you guessed it, Ghost types can be found near cemeteries and Electric types near power stations. We’re not suggesting to climb a mountain or break into a industrial area but instead vary where you hunt a bit.

When you capture a gym, defend it!

So you’re at at least level five and the real fun has begun, setting to work capturing your local gym will earn you some big rewards so well worth doing but hey….nothing good comes easy. Other players will be looking for a taste of of high life so be prepared to defend your gym by leaving good Pokémon there. Good defending will also earn extra bonuses and keep you in a good position.

Master your power

Now we don’t mean Pokémon powers or even superhuman powers, we mean getting the most from your device to keep you playing. It’s no secret that playing Pokémon GO pretty much smashes your battery so be smart. Activate the Pokémon GO battery saver mode in the settings option, dim the screen brightness, close unused background apps you might have running or perhaps invest in a battery charging pack to give you some extra juice on the go.

Throw a Curve ball

Not figuratively, literally! When you’re about to catch a critter, hold down on your Poké Ball and spin it in a circular motion with your finger. This will start it spinning, and if you hit and capture a Pokémon with this move you’ll gain some extra XP. Score!

Get out and play!

Possibly the best tip really and perhaps not one which can be avoided too much. The best way to enjoy the game, earn the good stuff and continue your amazing work is just to get out and explore….safely. Walking distances will help everything along and will help you bump into new characters and places. Again try to vary the locations, location types and even time of day and keep in mind that seeking landmarks in your area will be some great treats along with them too. The more you play, the more XP you will earn and the better everything will get.

So there you have them peeps! Hopefully we’ve passed on some handy hints to help you along you way. Know any other cool tips to help you fellow players? Shout them out below in the comments section!

Naturally, as veteran Pokémon trainers we’ve stocked a whole heap of Pokémon merchandise over the years and it seems that no more than ever is the time to grab a slice of the action and start showing off your love in style! Check out our latest catches including some fab Pokémon jewellery…
