The Bearded Trio Gift Idea #1 - Luke Skywalker's Tauntaun Magnet

Christmas Gift Idea - Tauntaun Fridge Magnet.

Christmas gift ideas?  I know it's only October but starting early gives everyone time to prepare and have a little less stress in their life.  So, here's our first gift idea for fans of The Bearded Trio.  It could be from Star Wars, Indiana Jones or any movie related to The Bearded Trio.  We may even include a soundtrack or two and that may not even be a John Williams score because I know you are all lovers of movie scores in general.  Also, we're only going to include gifts that are available to all and we are going to keep it realistic.  So don't expect us recommending a Star Wars-themed holiday for $6000.  These will likely be stocking-fillers and not break the bank.  Lastly, these are genuinely recommended by us and not us trying to get freebies or had the product for free.  If we did, we will let you know and then we will only recommend it if we think it's any good.

Anyway, to kick things off we have a gift idea from those fine folks over at Regal Robot who are passionate about their top quality official Star Wars products.  Now this gift idea is a limited time offer and it's online only so make sure you don't miss out!  It's a Luke Skywalker’s Tauntaun™ Magnet NYCC EXCLUSIVE!  This beauty will look fantastic on your fridge or in your geek room and it comes in at $29.99 plus shipping.  Who wouldn't want to be greeted by a Tauntaun every time you reach for a beer or a piece of cheese?  I know if it was me I would have to do the noise they make every time I laid eyes on it.  (I've also been thinking way too long on how to incorporate the Luke warm joke into this...Oh wait I've got it!...I hope this fridge magnet doesn't keep your fridge Luke warm.  Eh?  Any good?  Move along, move along.)  I guarantee you if you purchase this for your Star Wars geek friend it's going to bring a smile to their face all year.  Here's the details from Regal Robot's website:

Don’t miss out on the last magnet in series 1 of our Beast Collection!  Luke Skywalker’s Tauntaun is our New York City Comic Con (from home!) exclusive. Pairs great with our new Wampa Arm Magnet from the Separation Collection!

Available on-line for just a few days, this new magnet is based on the beast ridden by Luke on Hoth. It’s a highly detailed magnetic mini sculpture, inspired by the opening scenes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™. Hand painted silver tones highlight the fur and face of the tauntaun, with a light touch of bronze accenting the horns, including the broken left horn which identifies this as Luke’s steed.

Our Elements Series features crafted sculptures that are classically designed. Each piece in this art series will have a hand-finished premium “element” to create a look that evokes the subject. Designed, prototyped and produced in the USA, each magnet is cast in solid resin and hand painted by our artists in our New York studio with distinctive faux finishes. They ship ready to display.

Add this great magnet to your collection, home, office, man-cave or fridge!

Don't forget you can only order the from October 7th to October 10th and limited to two per order so don't miss out.  They are producing these to order and will take 6-8 weeks so still in time for that Christmas deadline. Here's the all important link:

If you have a gift idea you would like to recommend then let us know and if we feel it's a good idea we will feature it on this site and our social media platforms.  It's got to be good though.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
