Collecting The Precious - Film Cells Ltd. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Film Cell Collectibles Can't Post

fc6084This week in the roll out we've seen of new collectibles tied to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug we get something that allows you to bring parts of the film home early. These collectibles brought to you from Film Cells Ltd. capture little pieces of film placed in some pretty cool looking frames and some even allow you to bring more than one shot home. As of now you have ten different selections for film, two with six book marks and 4 different film frames. The coolest option is the film frame with 10 different scenes from what appears to be the first trailer. This is the option I went with and I got some pretty cool scenes capturing Legolas, Thranduil, Balin, Thorin/Dwarves all covered in spiderweb, Mirkwood, Azog, and I even got one with Smaug in it. I also ordered a bookmark and got a cool shot of Thorin covered in Spiderweb. I also asked the folks if there were more options coming as we get closer to the film and we will be getting more options.

So, how do you display this? [In reply to] Can't Post

When I see this kind of collectible I always wonder how it is possible to see the little images in the cells. They're just pieces of film aren't they? Do they need to be lit from behind, or how do you display this?

In order to see whats going on you have to put some kind of light behind it. This company does offer that option now for $40 but you can probably do it cheaper yourself. When I start hanging all the ones I have that's what I will do.

Thanks for the info [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you very much for the information. I'll have to check in to that. Like you said, it's probably possible to do this by yourself. I wonder what would happen if one of these displays was hung in front of a window. . .

No problem [In reply to] Can't Post

It would show things but I think over time it would cause the film to frame. Light you can turn on and off when you want is probably best.
