Geek Merch You Need

Early Christmas Gift Shopping

I just got back from New York Comic Con and I was once again over-whelmed with how many cool things there were to buy! There were a few places that looked essentially like Minecraft armories! I’m really pleased how much of a mainstream hit that Minecraft has become. I WISH I had the time to play like I use to but it’s pretty cool to see an end-cap at Target with Minecraft foam swords and plush Creepers. Let’s get into some cool stuff that I am excited about -

Marvel’s New York City Comic Con Exclusive – Rocket Raccoon Plush

NYCC-2013-Exclusive-Rocket-Raccoon-Plush-Toy-Stuffed-AnimalNew York Comic Con had quite a few different exclusives but the hottest one was the Rocket Raccoon plush from Marvel. Marvel had a few other really cool exclusives but people were in line for Rocket. Personally, I couldn’t justify the multi-hour wait in line for him. I regretted it the next day pretty hard, though. LUCKILY a friend of mine (Thank you Karl Olsen!) was able to secure one for me and I am eagerly waiting for it in the mail. Why is he so cool?


Well, besides being limited to only 1,000 pieces, this is the first official plush for this increasingly popular furry Marvel character.He’s going to be even more popular next year with the movie but the fervor (pun intended) for him is pretty high. The Skottie Young print that comes with it is also a reason I absolutely love this. If you are looking for this, expect to about between $75-$125 on eBay.

New Funko Pop’s – Adventure Time & Regular Show

I have resisted getting to into Funko’s Pop Vinyl figures because the are like crack to a pop culture nut and collector like myself. This is the same reason I won’t even look at Candy Crush. I know what flares up my additions. That said, I recently bought a Finn and Jake from their Adventure Time series thinking I would only buy those two. Well, I know myself too well. I set my limit at only Adventure Time figures which means I have since picked up a glow in the dark Finn variant, a zombie Jake variant, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, Ice King, and the regular Finn & Jake. At New York Comic Con, I saw my first second series figure: Gunter. Now I’m on the hunt again! Besides Gunter, series two brings us BMO, Fionna, Cake, Lemongrab, and Princess Bubblegum. I really hope we get a Peppermint Butler in series three!

Bravest Warriors Merchandise

Are you as obsessed as me about Bravest Warriors? As mentioned above, I am really into Adventure Time, but in many ways…I am more in love with Bravest Warriors. It’s a little more random, has less morals, and is aimed at an older demographic. That said, I watch every episode as it comes out on YouTube 3 times in a row! Besides the team, who doesn’t love Catbug and Impossibear???

While not as mainstream as Adventure Time, you can get some Bravest Warriors merch here and there but no one has better clothing and more than We Love Fine. A 100% must for everyone is the Catbug plush. There’s no excuse to not own this. I bet they’ve sold a million units of him.


Check out a few of these items and see WAYYYY more here.

Star Wars 6″ Black Series Action Figures

Star Wars has been in the toy business since the beginning and our merchandising founders. In fact, geek culture and merchandise didn’t REALLY go mainstream until George Lucas unleashed his products on thirsty addicted fans. It’s been going on since 1977 with very few lulls in-between. Which brings us to the latest line in Star Wars action figures: The Black Series. These premium figures are pretty much only for the adult collector who is looking for a line of figures with impeccable attention to detail. The smaller version of this series doesn’t quite have the same level of detail but are less expensive. That said, at $20, these aren’t a bad price at all. Series 2 is out with 3 coming in early 2014, these series are focusing on the most elite characters in all six Star Wars movies. Which means, I might have a long time to wait for the Jek Porkins I really want. Check them out at BigBadToyStore.
