The 12 Days of Geeks-Mas Day 11: Geeks in the HOUSE!
Hey now Evil Geeks, we’re almost to the end of our 12 Days of Geeksmas feature! Santa’s fueling up the sleigh (it runs on reindeer poop of course), stockings are hung, carolers are caroling, this Christmas thing is just about in full swing.
Today we’re featuring items for a place that’s near and dear to every Geeks heart: your home! Need a little more Star Wars in the kitchen or maybe a some more superheroes in your dining room? Then get an eyeful of the goodies we’re recommending today. One more day left to go, so check back tomorrow as we finally put that damn partridge in our Evil Geek pear tree!
The Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Bank
I saw this at a booth at NY Comic Con and I needed to have it right then in there. Who cares that it’s actually a bank? I just want to own it and have it adorn my house. Well unfortunately, they told me it wouldn’t be available till 2013. And the website Diamond Select Toys tells me it’s coming out in April, pre-order this now!!
Silver Surfer Bottle Opener
This one isn’t that great, but it’s clever. Being clever should count for something, right? The rest of the bottle opener is Silver Surfer’s board…get it? Yea, well I still want it. You can get this one at Diamond Select Toys as well.
MARTIAN LUTHOR KANG THE 117th
What better way to let company know that you’re living the high life than to serve them a cocktail with a minature frozen water replica of the most powerful weapon ever created?
The Death Star silicon ice cube form, an item snatched from my own shopping list, is sure to do the trick!
-Are you a geek who happens to spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen? Tired of getting grease stains all over your comic tees? Then check out this sweet-ass Batman Apron:
Put an end to Gotham’s corruption and unsightly grease stains, all while looking like the baddest mothafucka in the universe.
Still don’t feel like a big enough bad-ass at your BBQ yet even though you’re sporting your caped crusader apron? Well, there’s only one way to improve on that out fit and that’s with this awesome Swashbuckling BBQ Fork:
Take your grilling game to the next level by pretending that your dinner is being prepared by Captain Jack Sparrow! Of course in order to complete the cosplay, you’ll have to consume about a half gallon of rum before you start cooking. Puffy shirt not included.
Trying to by a gift for that die-hard Star Wars fan in your life? Then think about picking up this Han Solo Ice Cube Tray:
Spice up your drinks with a little smuggler! Be careful what booze you put in that drink though: Carbon sickness isn’t the only thing that causes blindness, so does poorly made moonshine.
Finally, this Christmas you can give a Trekkie the gift of boldly going where no Americanized Italian food has gone before with this Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Cutter:
I’m not even really into Star Trek, but even I’ll admit that this utensil is pretty cool!
Batman Cookie Jar
Who better to guard your cookies that the Caped Crusader, right? Actually there are a ton of Batman cookie jars on the market but I picked this one because it has that “Don’t touch my fucking cookies!” look on his face reminiscent of a fat kid at the lunch table! So next time you want to keep your chocolate chips safe, let the bat guard ’em!
Custom Superhero Coat Rack
This really cool home item is another custom-made creation that you can find on Etsy (I really love that place for this kind of stuff!) What we have in this piece are repurposed comic book panels of The Hulk giving a smackdown to Thor in outer space. Its really something to hang your hat on! (bad joke, I know :() The designer goes by the name Junksy and it looks like they’ve got a few different designs in their store. I bet if you contacted them that they would make a custom design for you! My only gripe about this stuff is that Comics get destroyed in the making of these items… I’d love to see a sign that read something like; “No Comics were harmed in the making of this production!” But Hell, at least it looks like a 90’s book… there are millions of those laying around to spare!
Doctor Who 11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver…Screwdriver
Just like the 11th Doctors’, this is one heluva multifunctional tool! You can use it to pick locks and control computers through the universe or simply tighten that loose screw under the dining room chair because this die-cast tool comes with both Philips and Flat Head screwdriver tips that you can store in a chamber in the base. So if your geeks a handyman who’s into Cosplay, then this is the best gift out there!
