Hobby and collectibles items are increasingly popular as a result of pop culture and excellent marketing. Whether you're looking for a toy for your child or a more intricate hobby-grade item for an enthusiast, there is a wide choice of hobby-related items, collectible figurines, movie prop replicas and posters available. Some information about them can help make selecting an item easier.
Action figures come in different sizes and scales. The scale is the ratio of the figure's size in comparison to a real human body. Since these collectible toys mostly depict superheroes, companies typically refer to 6ft. as the standard human height. The 1:4 scale is most common in dolls with hair and interchangeable clothes. These figurines are approximately 18 in. tall. The most common scales for action figures are 1:6, 1:9 and 1:10. Typically, the larger the figure, the more intricate the details. However, modern sculpture techniques make it possible to create high-quality miniature figures as well.
In the past, collecting movie props was a very expensive hobby that was only available to people with connections to Hollywood personalities. The ""hero"" props, for example, are the ones used in the main scenes of the film, and can cost thousands of dollars. Today, there are quality movie prop replicas at a fraction of the cost of hero props. Many of them are full size, and look just like the item that appears on the screen. For a fan of ""Star Wars"", there are replica lightsabers with realistic sound and light effects. In the fantasy genre, there are plenty of movie prop replicas from ""Lord of the Rings"", such as the fighting knives of Legolas and Gandalf's sword. You can also find replicas of tools and weapons from famous video games, like the Diamond Pickaxe from ""Minecraft"" and the Sword of Justice from ""Diablo"". Sometimes the weapons are as famous as the action figures.
Movie posters come in a variety of designs and styles. Whether they feature a vintage or modern blockbuster film, posters and movie art complement your home decor beautifully. They can spark a conversation with your guests who will ask why you chose that specific movie. When paired with an elegant frame, movie posters look great in any room of your house, without creating a dormitory look. There is also cartoon wall art for your children's room. To decorate the playroom without ruining the walls, you can choose peel-and-stick wall decals featuring the most beloved cartoon characters. They are so easy to apply and reposition that even your kids can have fun with them.
Novelties are small gadgets with no practical purpose, but they come in attractive, fun designs. They can feature beloved movie or cartoon characters. You can find keychains, ornaments, skull figurines, collectible busts, embroidered patches for clothes and many other accessories. There are also fun and inexpensive gag gift ideas for your friends. They're perfect for birthdays, bachelorette parties, stag nights and retirements.
