A look at the toys, clothes, and autumn essentials for every geek.
The fall season is like Christmas for geeks. From the debut of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to the return of the God of Thunder in Thor: The Dark World, there’s an arsenal of Sci-Fi and super-powered bliss to enjoy. The beauty of being a geek is that it’s not just the media we get to enjoy — it’s also the fun collectibles. Capitalizing on some of our favorites for the fall, here’s a list of 20 must-haves.
TARDIS Cake/Jello Mold: Entertain the best of your companions with this TARDIS mold perfect for desserts. Who knew the Doctor had an affinity for time travel and baking?
Arrow: The Complete First Season [Blu-ray]: With season two of Arrow just around the corner, the season one 9-disc box set is a great way to familiarize yourself with the emerald archer. The CW is known for its campy teen dramas, but it seems Arrow dodged that bullet somewhat by producing a thriller with great action, fun DC cameos and multi-layered plot twists. Arrow season two premieres on October 9th on the CW.
Jarvis – A Second Screen Experience iPhone App: Most of us have experienced Tony Stark envy at some point in our Marvel Cinematic experience, primarily due to Stark’s fun and reliable A.I. partner in crime, Jarvis. This iOS-exclusive app allows you to vocally interact with Jarvis by giving weather updates and schedule commands, complete with a user-friendly interface. The cherry on top? It’s voiced by the original Jarvis himself, Paul Bettany.
RoboCop Hot Toys Collectible Figure: You’re never too old to play with action figures, especially if it’s a one-of-kind figure — and just in time for the RoboCop reboot. Complete with a detailed mechanical chair and interchangeable lower faces, Sideshow Collectibles has a stunningly accurate collectible on their hands. RoboCop even speaks, offering six iconic lines from the 1987 film. RoboCop’s available for pre-sale, but definitely not for a dollar.
The Wit & Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister: Westeros’ favorite “Imp” gets the star quality he deserves in George R.R. Martin’s latest. Filled with fun quips and wise words from our favorite Lannister, accompanied by illustrations from Jonty Clark, it is sure to bring a chuckle or two given Tyrion’s bounty of Cersei rebukes. Available now for pre-order.
Funko Pop! Thor 2 Loki Vinyl Figure: Heralding his appearance in Thor: The Dark World, Loki is the newest addition to the Funko Pop pantheon of geekery. All of that villainy packaged in an adorable bite size figure almost makes the trickster god trustworthy, but who are we kidding? He was adopted. Thor, Malekith the Dark Elf, and Loki are all are available for pre-order.
Breaking Bad Action Figure Wall Art: With the final season of Breaking Bad coming to an explosive end, this painting is a fun way to relive the best of Walter White’s moments, such as Walt cooking in his famous tighty whities. Illustrated by Mike Wrobel (the artist behind the Game of Thrones pop art illustrations), this print is available for t-shirt and iPhone case print screening.
AMC’s The Walking Dead Officially Licensed Michonne’s Katana: It’s no secret Michonne’s gets into a lot of ass kickery in The Walking Dead, mainly due to her top-tier Katana wielding skills. If you’ve been looking to tap into your inner Michonne (and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be Michonne), this limited edition Maru style Katana blade is perfect for you.
American Horror Story Asylum Crying Nun Mug: Atone for your sins over some morning brew, compliments of AHS’s weeping nuns.
Before the Watchmen Ozymandias Statue: ”The Smartest Man in The World” makes his way to every collector’s heart in a “9.25″ high statue form. A near exact replica of Jae Lee’s Before the Watchmen: Ozymandias issue #1 cover, Ozymandias is just too regal to pass up.
Iron Man 3 – Limited Edition Steelbook [Blu-ray] [Region Free]: This euro exclusive box set comes in 2D and 3D, with a slew of additional features, including Marvel short film Agent Carter and a look at Thor: The Dark World. The Blu-ray can also be controlled by the iOS Jarvis app listed above.
Spaceship Blinds: How would you like to wake up to a blue print of the Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon every morning? This is potentially the living embodiment of every Sci-Fi geek’s dream.
Dorigan Renjiya Green Power Ranger T: Is there anything more geek nostalgic than the sheer awesomeness of the Green Ranger in a Japanese styled graphic T? I think not.
Nightwing Funko Pop Vinyl Figure: Yes, another Funko Pop figure on the list. But how could you not fall in love with this guy? Nightwing’s ready for action with his mini escrima sticks, even if that means fighting off a case of the Mondays at the office.
Justice League Vol 3. Throne of Atlantis Hard Cover: Collecting issues #13-17, The Justice League find themselves head-to-head with the Atlantean army after the bombing of Atlantis due to a U.S. Naval missile gone awry. If you’re a fan of the merry band of heroes (especially Aquaman), and action-packed crossover events, this may be the book for you. Available on September 25th.
The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition [Blu-ray]: The Walking Dead Season 3 Special Edition Blue-ray: Befitting of AMC’s horror drama, this special edition Blu-ray features the Governor’s eerie zombie head filled aquarium tank. Doesn’t get more zombierific than that.
