Pre-Order Your Funko Vikings POP Vinyls Now!

Order now for May 2015 arrival:

Funko POP Vinyl Ragnar

Recently we announced that History Channel’s Vikings was on the list to be glorified as Funko POP Vinyls figurines. Well, we can announce that the wait is almost over! May 2015 is the arrival date and you can pre-order the Vikings figures now.

On offer are five figures so far: Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), Rollo (Clive Standen), Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) and the Seer (John Kavanagh):

While I am a bit disappointed not to see Helga (Maude Hirst) in the line up, I am more than impressed with just how creepy cute they have made the Seer! I am also surprised to see Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and, especially, Athelstan (George Blagden) missing from the line up.

You can pre-order the whole set or individually by clicking here.

Help Viking’s Gustaf Skarsgard Get His Latest Movie Started

Pledge as little as $1 to Kickstarter to get The Highway Is For Gamblers made:

Gustaf Skarsgard stars as Floki in History Channel's VikingsWant to help Vikings star Gustaf Skarsgard (who plays Floki in the History Channel series) get his latest movie up and running? Well it is as easy as pledging $1 to the Kickstarter campaign! The Highway Is For Gamblers already has the majority of its funding but still needs to raise $165,000.

Synopsis

When Jane (Nikki Reed) goes missing, Heidi (Bonnie Wright) must search the desert for her, uncovering secrets and encountering the violence of life on the road.

Nikki Reed (who played Rosalie Hale in the Twilight movies) has been cast alongside Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies). Gustaf will play the role of Lyle. Writer-director Alexandra McGuinness had the following to say about The Highway Is For Gamblers:

I started driving the highways, exploring the desert, which might as well be Mars if seen for the first time. This film is an outsider’s view of California, this group of desert communities, former veins of culture such as Route 66, left to age and whither. Once symbols of American freedom, the towns and outposts off the beaten path have become something darker and more harsh, where people get left behind, lost in the hugeness of it forever, fighting for survival against the sharp reality of dwindling opportunities. In the background there’s the immigration situation, the military, the prisons and detention centers, God, religion, violence, and the American dream. And in the midst of all this strangeness, the idea of being a girl on your own.

This is a story of two best friends who live in the desert, but who dream of so much more.

Like Lotus Eaters, this story explores people struggling to understand who they are and where they are going. But this time, their desire to break free leads them down an even more dangerous path filled with secrets, violence, and the elusive hope of a better future always just beyond their grasp…

VIDEO: First Season 3 Trailer Revealed

Here we have the very first trailer video for Season 3 of History Channel’s Vikings!

Floki with a crown in Season 3 of the History channels VikingsIt is a very foreboding video clip with the Seer (John Kavanagh) overshadowing the clip with his prophecies. To break it down, this is what the Seer predicts we’ll see in Season 3:

  • A battle that will occur on one river that has two shores and three sides. While the term ‘three sides’ may be a little obscure, it is possible he is talking about three opposing sides. Could he mean Ragnar (Travis Fimmell), King Aelle (Ivan Kaye) and King Ecbert (Linus Roache)? Or is there yet more infighting between different viking factions?
  • Who is that body floating in the water?
  • Someone is being forcibly held down while their arm is being hacked off
  • Ragnar seems pretty happy with the human heads he is bringing home
  • Why does Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard) have a long blonde braid? Is he hiding someone under his jacket?
  • Then we see Floki reach for a bloody crown. This could mean a multitude of things. Did he kill a king? Does he plan to be king? Or is he merely retrieving it to hand it on to Ragnar? Only time will tell…

Then the Seer is laughing at us and telling us to be patient. Yeah, easy enough for him to say when we are the ones who have to wait until 2015 for the Season 3 premiere!
