Great Gifts for X-Files Fans
I don’t know about you but I’m really looking forward to the new X-Files series that is premiering on January 24 2016 and if you have any fans of the old X-files series in the family, these X-Files themed gift ideas might be just the thing to gift them as they prepare to watch the new season! The original X-Files ran for 9 seasons from 1993 to 2002 which was a great time for all sorts of sci-fi based TV shows and I watched most of them in those days!
I know Mulder & Scully will both have aged and the world has moved on since 2002 but with the original directer/producer and many of the original writers, I have great hopes that this reboot might actually be ok. That said, these Funko action figures are all based on the original series – I love the Wacky Wobblers for both Mulder & Scully.
Of course, any collection of Funko Pop figures for X-Files wouldn’t be complete without the Smoking Man and an Alien but I was surprised there were no Lone Gunmen figures. The main Mulder & Scully characters are both represented in the Funko Pop range too.
Imagine my surprise to see this X-Files t-shirt with the spotlight on the logo – I actually have one of this exact design from all those years ago although it is pretty ratty by now and I may have trashed it last month when I moved to the US! I love the alien head t-shirt design – so simple and yet so very effective.
I also found some more unusual t-shirts to show you too – these are designed by individual artists and fans of the show but what it really means is that you don’t have to have a generic X-Files t-shirt if you don’t want to – you can get something just a little bit different.
Following on from the more unusual t-shirts, there was also this design which shows Mulder & Scully with Doctor Who and the Tardis – sadly it’s not available as a t-shirt but would make a fantastic gift for any Doctor Who fan or for an X-Files fan. As a fan of both tv shows, I absolutely adore this print.
I’m really looking forward to the new season – it’s only 6 episodes and is billed as a mini series but I’m hoping it will be good and get great reviews so they will think about making more!
