Transformers: Age of Extinction Out Today!

Cybertron’s orbit! IS it really that time?! That’s right Transformers fans, the long awaited and naturally huuugely anticipated fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise series is here and will be hitting the UK Cinemas…..today!
.
As many of you might already know, this will be the first edition without original cast member Shia Labeouf taking center stage, instead teen pop idol to respected actor Mark Wahlberg will be teaming up the the Autobots as they are met with another battle between good and evil and they face extinction of the human race! eeeep!
So what’s it all about?

As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” four years earlier, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer attacks and push the boundaries of human technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his cross-hairs, bringing the Autobots out of hiding from Government officials to save the day.

Starring, or course, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Li Bingbing, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, T. J. Miller, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor and Titus Welliver, this is sure to be another action-packed, edge of your seat battle driven film packed full of stars and explosions. Amazing or what!
.
With all this excitement, we just had to show off some of our classic Transformers T-Shirts which we will be proudly rocking when we head off to see this, why not pick one up too….

80s Classic Flick Labryinth Turns 28 Years Old Today! + Facebook Comp!

Can you believe it! Henson meets Bowie (Jareth) classic Labyrinth was first released in the US today back in 1986! Scary to think!

This cult icon well known for those trousers it’s quirky story line and of course classic characters has been a firm favourite for many 80s kids and of course generations after and it’s not hard to see why!

Although initially this flick was seen as a commercial hiccup, not even grossing half of it’s $25million budget in the cinemas, Labyrinth gained a strong cult following and has been widely known as one of the best films from the 80s ever since.

A staggering 28 tears on (oh how old do we feel!) this film is still going strong in the eyes of many and is certainly still in all of our top lists.

The classic story follows 15 years old Sarah accidentally wishes her baby half-brother, Toby, away to the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie). Jareth tells Sarah that he will give back her brother if she can solve his super high-tech and oh-so 80s Labyrinth within just thirteen hours. He then whisks them both off to the Labyrinth, leaving Sarah there to start her quest.
She quickly meets Hoggle, a grumpy and obstinate dwarf who initially refuses to help her. Soon after Sarah has trapped herself in an oubliette. Jareth sends Hoggle into the oubliette to free Sarah and sneakily misdirect her back to the beginning of the labyrinth. However, Sarah makes a trade with Hoggle while in the oubliette, and convinces him to take her as far as he can through the Labyrinth instead.

Through a series of twists and turns, she runs into even more weird and wonderful characters such as Ludo, the iconic ‘ello worm’, Sir Didymus, Fire Gang and is faces with ever greater challenges including the Bog of Eternal Stench, a room full of stairs and even the odd peach trance. Phew!
.
With so much love for this retro icon, naturally we’ve been so busy over the years designing and creating our very own range of exclusive and 100% official Labyrinth T-Shirts including designs inspired by the Goblin Kind, Ello Worm, Ludo and more. Take a look at some of our top picks from this great range…..
