ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
In the late 90's we were collecting movie memorabilia as a hobby, we built up a large collection and decided it would be great if we could start selling the collectables we loved to like minded people. We wanted to bring the best movie, TV and gaming collectables to fans at the best price possible.
So in 2005 we launched The Film Cell and started to grow our business. We started off selling on eBay then soon started up our own website, this was when www.thefilmcell.com was born. Our house was full of Harry Potter merchandise and we wanted to specialise in the things we loved so Harry Potter merch has always been one of our main focuses.
As well as the website we were also attending lots of events and comic cons selling our merchandise around the country. Exhibiting at as many comic cons as we could get to.
While we were focussing on Harry Potter merch we were building up a range of other movie, TV and gaming merchandise and Funko POPs started to take up more and more of our warehouse. This fast became one of the largest ranges of products we sold. We opened up a group on Facebook devoted to Funko POPs which allowed collectors to discuss, trade, buy and sell Funko POP figures to other collectors.
In July 2018 we opened up our shop based in Warkton, which is on the outskirts of Kettering in Northamptonshire, to showcase the awesome merchandise. We wanted to be able to show collectors the awesome merchandise we had available on our website. You can come into the shop and physically look through all the Harry Potter wands we have in stock and chose which one you want to add to your collection next.
We have created 3 rooms full of all thing movie, TV and comic book related, our main room is themed to look like a Dickensian shopping street filled with Harry Potter merchandise, replicas and collectable toys. We also have a HUGE range of Funko POPs, one whole room is full of Funko POP vinyl figures with over 1,000 figures in stock in our shops and warehouse.
We are now looking to the future and have lots of plans to expand the shop, including opening up another unit so we can have more themed rooms. These are likely to included sci-fi and superhero themed rooms.
