You Need This Light-Up ‘Star Wars’ Yoda Tree Topper
Pfeff-Bot   |  

12-inch Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper

With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens still far, far away (December 18, 2015), there are a few ways to get your Star Wars fix; however, this little holiday item may just shine the brightest of all.

This 12-inch Star Wars Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper by Kurt Adler has been tested and approved. It all started with a Geeks of Doom Holiday Gift Guide. These are not just for our readers, folks. My interest was immediately piqued when I stumbled upon this Christmas Tree Topper on Amazon. And when I added it on a whim to my Amazon wishlist, I had no idea that this little piece of Christmas magic would change my life.

I was lucky enough to receive this topper in the mail as a Christmas gift, and when I opened the box, I was stunned. There is no other way to put it (okay, I have a few more ways). This is Yoda as you have never seen him before. His beautiful, handpainted face is almost as impressive as his bright green, shining lightsaber. My living room has changed from a cute decorated room to a magical land of wonder and amusement where the Force is extremely strong (I may be exaggerating a little bit). But really, when I beheld this Yoda at the top of my Christmas tree, my jaw dropped.

Holiday Batman Gift Guide 2014

You better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why, Batman is going to scream at you, tie you up, and leave you for the GCPD to find you. The good news, though, is that unless you’re Rudolph the Red-Nosed Hitman or some other nefarious being, you’re probably good on the tying up by Batman front. But it is the holidays, and even Batman likes to receive and give gifts on occasion, so in honor of Batty Claus, I’ve curated this fine list of fine gifts for Batman lovers on your holiday list. Enjoy, and give! It’s the best part of the season!

Box Of Dread: The October Edition
Dr. Zaius   |  

Box of Dread Ad

Every month I patiently await my happy little Box of Dread from Dread Central. The boxes, which are filled with all sorts of horror regalia, come delivered monthly to your door. In the past few months, I received DVDs, toys, stickers, posters, buttons, etc. Not every box will contain the exact same things (some do), but will have similar themes.

This month happens to be October, which for horror fans means Christmas has come early and Halloween is here. It also means to return to television for arguably horror’s most popular show, AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Continue reading for more on this month’s Box of Dread, and to see some images and unboxing videos.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ “Awesome Mix Vol. 1″ Coming To Cassette
Bombardier Jedi   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Cassette

James Gunn not only hit one out of the park this summer with the runaway hit Guardians of the Galaxy, but he had a surprising smash hit soundtrack to boot. The music in the film seemed to play a supporting role all to itself, and audiences scrambled to iTunes to download it. Soon, you too can own your own cassette version (just like Chris Pratt‘s Star Lord) of the “Awesome Mix Vol. 1.”

Marvel and Hollywood Records will release the soundtrack, which remains the 10th best-selling album of 2014, on a limited run of cassettes on November 17th. The cassette tape will be made available only to independent retailers partnered with “Record Store Day,” and an exact total of just how many of the limited run cassettes will be available is not known at the moment. It will be in stores until December. Talk about your #1 Christmas Boutique Gift Item right?

Female Lead Gamora Missing From ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Team Merchandise
Empress Eve   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Banner Image

In this installment of “Please Take My Money, Disney,” we take a look at Disney/Marvel’s newest film, Guardians Of The Galaxy, which is currently soaring at the box office and has jumped to the top of everyone’s list of favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

When people dig an action-packed, scifi superhero movie like this — one that has a cool, funny hero (Star-Lord); a badass, gorgeous leading lady (Gamora); a wise-cracking, gun-toting raccoon (Rocket); a sensitive muscle man (Drax the Destroyer); and a lovable tree creature (Groot) — as Star Wars creator George Lucas has always banked on, they’re gonna want some merchandise. So, bring out all the merch you got, and people will buy it (if Star Wars isn’t example enough, just ask Gene Simmons from KISS).

But, for some reason, once again, Disney is slighting its non-Princess female characters, as Friend of Doom Amy Radcliffe pointed out this week in her article “A Sad Lack of Gamora,” which notes that while Guardians merch and toys are easily found, one of its characters, Gamora, the female team member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, is not, prompting the creation of the hashtag #wheresgamora.

Game of Thrones Dragon Shadow Image

Today we have a quick look at a newly revealed installment in Dark Horse’s line of Game of Thrones figures. Take a look at Tywin Lannister as portrayed by Charles Dance, Hand of the King, father of Jaime, Cersei, and Tyrion, and all around stone cold mother.

The figure stands 8” on its base and is set to go on sale March 2015. There’s not a lot of articulation in the figure, but there sure is a ton of detail.

The figure prototype will be on display this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con at booth #2615. Check out a few pictures of the figure here below.

Tetsuya Nomura's Batman Header Image

As part of Square Enix’s DC Comics Variant Play Arts Kai line of re-imagined figures, Kingdom Hearts co-creator and director and Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura has designed his own version of Batman.

Nomura’s vision of the Dark Knight is decidedly unique, so much so that it might come as a bit of a shock to some Batman purists. This is one in a series of new designs by Nomura, and you can see what his version of the legendary superhero looks like below.
