Each month I will be compiling a list of some of the coolest geek gears available from around the globe and telling you how you can get your hands on it! If you have any awesome suggestions make sure you let me know in the comments below!
1. CAPTAIN AMERICA SHIELD
Want to really feel like Cap? Need to add a little more authenticity to your cosplay? Then you need to add the official Captain America Shield to your Marvel collection. Truly durable, and built to a 1:1 scale, this is the ultimate collectable to show how much you love Steve Rogers!
- 24” Diameter; 3” deep (dome shape when lying flat)
- Plastic construction w/premium deco finish
- Leather-like straps w/metal buckles and shield rivets on interior
The Marvel Legends: Captain America – Shield Prop Replica is now available for preorder from MightyApe now for $179.99
2. Gremlins: Gizmo Puppet Replica
Easily one of the most iconic creatures to come out of 80’s cinema, and probably the cutest, Gizmo the Mogwai was also an amazing character that no doubt made fans around the world want a Mogwai of their own.
And now you can finally get yourself a Mogwai, and you don’t have to worry about after midnight feeding, water or sunlight! Standing 10 inches tall, Gizmo was designed from the original puppet, down to the detail on the hair, eyes and construction.
You can preorder your very own Mogwai from MightyApe for just $139.99. I know I’ll be adding this to my Christmas list!
3. Alien – Life Size Egg & Facehugger Replica
Easily one of the most terrifying concepts to come out of any science fiction film, the Alien Facehugger was freaky as. The idea of a creature hatching out of an egg, and laying an embro in your chest, ready to burst forth in the form of a baby Xenomorph. Now, thanks to Neca you can own a full size replica of not only the facehugger alien, but the hatching egg complete with lights and glowing functions.
Luckily this second stage alien isn’t likely to lay embros down your throat, so make sure you grab one of these amazing collectables while you can!
You can order your own Facehugger and Egg replica from MightyApe for $999.99
4. BB-8 Architectural Desk Lamp
What if Rey actually sold off BB-8 for all those portions in the beginning of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Once he stopped working, we are willing to bet his scraps would be repurposed, quite possibly into a fancy lamp. And now you can score one for yourself! Available in two different styles, the BB-8 Desk Lamp will add a great bit of Star Wars flair to your desk or workspace!
You can grab your own over at ThinkGeek now from $49.99USD
Or if you are a little more old school, you can score an R2D2 version too!
5. Darth Vader Toothpick Dispenser
This is definitely a must have for the Star Wars fan who already has everything Sith related! The Darth Vader Toothpick Dispenser operates by pressing down on the level at the rear to allow the Sith Lord to pick out a toothpick with his lightsaber hilt!
This will easily create a talking point at your next dinner party.
Grab your own from Amazon for $46.67USD and check out the video to show how it works below!
