We all know it’s better to give than to receive.
But why not have the best of both worlds? Have your cake and eat it, too?
After all: you can’t always trust friends and family to get you exactly what you’ve got on your gift list. Why not take some of that cash from Auntie Enid and Grandpa Joe – or that sweet holiday bonus from work – and treat yourself to some extra special goodies?
To that end, we have compiled a list of great gift ideas that will look extra smashing under your own tree this holiday season.
First there’s the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends set, an Entertainment Earth exclusive from Hasbro! All of your favorite Guardians of the Galaxy have been recreated in their original comic design glory, in 6-inch scale and with fantastic accessories.
Gamora, Star-Lord Peter Quill, Drax the Destroyer, and Rocket Raccoon – all in costumes you won’t find anywhere else – plus baby Groot in his pot and an 8-inch tall first-ever comic book version of everyone’s favorite talking tree, Groot!
All of the Guardians are packaged in a fifth-panel display box for those who prefer to keep their action figures in pristine condition (box measures 15-inches tall x 13-inches long x 3-inches wide).
Next up is beloved Jedi master Yoda looking extra festive as this Santa Yoda Fabriche Tablepiece Statue. Standing 5-inches tall, Santa Yoda is bringing a brown sack full of toys for all of the good girls, boys, and Padawans of the universe. He’ll make a great conversation piece for any holiday display, or command a place of pride on your table during Christmas dinner.
The third item on our gift checklist also comes from a galaxy far, far away. The Star Wars Rogue One AT-ACT Vehicle can be controlled via smartphone app and fires 4 projectiles. The AT-ACT vehicle features a removable cargo bay that becomes a playset and includes 3 figures from the upcoming Rogue One film: droid C2-B5, Rebel hero Jyn Erso, and an Imperial AT-ACT driver.
For all of the Pop! collectors out there, Funko has released the World of Pop! Volume 5 Hardcover Book, an artistic coffee-table guide to the collectible figures. Measuring 11-inches x 7 3/4-inches, the book includes numerous photos of the Pop! takes on your favorite characters in various settings and backgrounds.
And last – but certainly not least – is an Entertainment Earth/Comic Con exclusive: the Batman v. Superman: Jokers Wild Batman figure. Seems that an impressive action figure of the Caped Crusader was vandalized by the Clown Prince of Crime before he could leave the warehouse: Bats and his box – which mimics the grimy walls of Gotham City – have been covered in Joker’s graffiti. Standing a whopping 19-inches tall, this piece is limited to only 3,000 items and won’t linger much longer!
If you want your stocking stuffed by the holidays, order now – because if you want your gifts done absolutely right this season, sometimes you’ve gotta do it yourself.
