Toys and Collectibles Part 2

Toys & Collectibles, Continued!

 

Welcome to the final section of the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide, covering Toys and Collectibles! You'll find everything from $6 Funko Pops to $4,000 limited edition giant statues here.

Of all the sections of the Gift Guide this one has the most Pre-Order Items. Sadly that's just the way things work with collectibles these days. If you don't pre-order them you stand a good chance of not getting any because they sell out before release.

I made sure to include as many cool statues, Sixth Scale figures and toys that you could buy right this very second and, hopefully, still get in time for Christmas as I could find, but just a heads up that there are going to be a lot of pre-orders here. 

In my experience, though, printing out a pre-order receipt and gifting that over Christmas is almost as exciting as having the finished item. I went in with a group of friends to buy a buddy the crazy giant Hot Toys Delorean replica a few years back and he lost his shit just as big as if he actually unwrapped it right there on the spot.

Anyway, tons of items here. Enjoy!

Housewares

Housewares

Welcome to one of my favorite sections: Housewares. I define housewares as pretty much anything that's not a straight up toy, but has some kind of function in or around the house. That means kitchen stuff like nerdy utensils and plates, that means bathroom stuff (got one hell of a shower curtain in this section, for instance), that means Christmas tree ornaments, that means rugs... You'd be surprised just how much geekier you can make your house.

The beginning of this section if pretty thick with ornaments. I love Christmas tree decorations and Hallmark has some great stuff out this year. From there we move into the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom (oh yeah) and even your front porch.

As always, prices shift every couple of minutes around the holidays so don't take the prices listed as holy scripture. Double check before you hit purchase! 

Enjoy!

Apparel

Apparel

Welcome to the Apparel Section of the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide. Below you'll find some of the geekiest movie, video game and cartoon related wearables that I could find.

There's an almost literal neverending sea of pop culture merchandise out there, so I did my best to cull a little bit from all over covering different kinds of cool apparel. There's some watches, tee shirts, ugly holiday sweaters, hoodies, jackets, backpacks, jewelry and hats.

Once again, this is all put through the Vespe filter, so the vast majority of what you see below appeals to me personally and that's why it's here. Apologies in advance for all the random '80s horror stuff.

Enjoy!

Music

Music

Welcome to the Music Section of the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! Below you'll find a whooooooole lot of soundtracks. I'm pretty dumb when it comes to most non-movie related music so you're not going to find a whole lot of popular music stuff, fair warning. 

What you will find are a combination of CDs and cool vinyl. One note: most of the vinyl and CDs sold through Amazon comes with a complete album MP3 download as well. I didn't always mark that bonus with the items I link, so keep your eyes peeled for that should you be interested in that.

Enjoy!

Blu-Rays/DVDs/4k Part I

Blu-Rays/DVDs/4k Part I

The first section up is a pretty, pretty thorough DVD/Blu-Ray/4k UHD section. You'll notice a little focus on 4k since the Xbox One X's release means a whole lot more 4k Blu-Ray players are in people's homes now... and I also just happened to have upgraded my TV just in time and have fallen in love with it. One note: prices fluctuate on an almost minute by minute basis, especially this close to Black Friday, so be aware of that. Every effort has been made to be as close to the mark as possible, but there may be some small price differences. Enjoy!

Art

Art

Welcome to the Art Section of the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide. This is always a trick section because so much of this art (in fact almost all) is limited. That's one of the things that makes collecting prints special is you're usually getting something not everybody will have. The downside is that makes it tough to include much art in a Guide like this because by the time most of this cool stuff is put out it's already snapped up. But I did find quite a few decent options that were still for sale as of the writing of this section. Lots of nerdy stuff, from Casablanca to Kill Bill to Stranger Things, Star Wars and Jaws.
