Fun Things I Got From The Cinema This Week

While I may not have been going to see the Avengers Endgame re-release, the woman at the cinema still let me take one of these poster they brought out which I felt really needed a place in my house.

I’m also a sucker for a good collectors cup and this Woody one is hands down one of the best I’ve ever seen so naturally it was purchased and that damn hat was a struggle to put on but it’s now on my shelf where it should be.
