2016 Gift Guide: Toys, Games, Gadgets and Ephemera

BIG-FIGS: DC Universe Batman 48-Inch Figure

Straight out of the DC Universe comes the Dark Knight himself, Batman, in the JAKKS BIG-FIGS Colossal action figure line. Standing at a whopping 48-inches tall, this Batman is ready to defend Gotham City or your bedroom with an amazing never before seen light up Bat Signal. It also terrifies my dog. Two feet short of life size, this miniature Caped Crusader is just dark and mysterious enough to cause terror in a 13 pound Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Just set it for action or “nightlight” modes and with one touch press, Batman’s chest logo lights up the night, casting the iconic Bat Symbol on the nearest wall. This of course incites my other dog, who freaks out over lights and shadows. Watch with delight as my 23 pound Cavalier King Charles Spaniel keeps jumping at the wall with the illuminated Bat Signal. Call the Dark Knight to the rescue or have your own adventures with this articulated 48- inch action figure. Includes both action and nightlight modes for two different brightness levels.

Plus, it riles dogs.

My new go-to headphone, the Puro BT5200 headphones can be used both with an audio cable and via Bluetooth. Compatible with all Apple and Android devices as well as anything Bluetooth enabled, the studio-grade audio quality on-ear headphones also feature an incredibly important feature, advanced volume monitoring.

Offering 82% noise-isolation and studio grade audio quality ensures that your listening experience is never compromised, even in noisy environments. Incredibly comfortable, these are my favorite on-ear headphones I’ve ever worn. Comes with a hard carrying case to insure their protection when not in use.

The Green Hornet – TV Series Action Figure Box Set – The Green Hornet & Kato

“Another challenge for the Green Hornet, his aide Kato, and their rolling arsenal, the Black Beauty. On Police records a wanted criminal, Green Hornet is really Britt Reid, owner-publisher of the Daily Sentinel, his dual identity known only to his secretary and to the district attorney. And now, to protect the rights and lives of decent citizens, rides THE GREEN HORNET.”

The Green Hornet tv series might never have reached the broad popularity of the 1966 Batman series, but that doesn’t diminish the sheer entertainment and cool factor delivered by Van Williams and Bruce Lee as the Green Hornet and Kato, respectively.

Sculpted by Masked Avenger Studio’s Ruben Procopio and Bryan Wynia, each figure includes a display base and interchangeable hands/weapons. The Green Hornet can be displayed with either his fearsome sting or Gas Gun. Kato can be displayed with Nunchuks or throwing dart.

Get this for the pulp hero lover in your life. So, jump into the Black Beauty and in the words of the Green Hornet himself, “Hornet gun… check. Hornet sting… check. Let’s roll, Kato!”


Disney Moana Mega Maui Figure

From the new feature film, Disney’s Moana, Maui the demigod comes to life standing over 16-inches tall.

Open your eyes, let’s begin
Yes, it’s really me, it’s Maui: breathe it in!

Mega Maui is highly detailed with all of his iconic tattoos, leaf skirt and his magical fishhook that he can really hold.

I know it’s a lot: the hair, the bod!
When you’re staring at a demi-god

And when you press his bone necklace, you can hear him (the voice of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) say 12 of his hilarious movie phrases and sing his hit song, “You’re Welcome!”

Includes: 16-inch figure, removable fishhook and 2 AAA batteries.

You’re welcome.

Question Block Light

From the moment we played our first game, we secretly wished that we could bring a little bit of the Mario world into the real world (and we’re not just talking about Princess Peach). Dressing up the dog as Yoshi never quite cut it, and that venus fly trap turned out to be nowhere near as big or aggressive as we’d hoped… but now, thanks to the Question Block Light, our 8-bit fantasies just got a little bit closer to reality.

Instead of floating mid-air, this pixelated beauty sits proudly upon your bedside table or office desk. There’s no need to leap up and punch it from beneath, just give it a light press from above to turn it on and bathe in its wondrous Nintendo nostalgia.

You can tap it as much as you like, it won’t spit out gold coins, bean stalks, Super Mushrooms or Fire Flowers. Seriously, we’ve tried. It will however emit an incredibly satisfying and moreish ‘ping’ sound. Includes USB power cable. Princess and giant gorilla not included.


Nyko Charge Block Duo for Xbox One

Tired of burning through your roommate’s non-rechargeable batteries, then let’s give a warm round of applause for the Nyko Charge Block Duo. With its easy “drop and charge” design, you can conveniently store and charge two Xbox One controllers on a dual base which plugs into the wall or directly into your Xbox via its USB port. Or, if you’re in a giving mood because of the holidays, you can separate the blocks and share with a sibling or friend (though you will need an additional USB charging cable). Inside the box you’ll find: two Charge Blocks, two 1,200mAh batteries, two replaceable battery covers, a USB charging cable, and an AC adapter. Simply tuck the included 1,200mAh batteries into your controllers and attach the replaceable battery covers that expose the contact points, drop onto the Charge Blocks and…Voila! An LED stripe on both sides keeps you informed of the status, with a somewhat excessively bright blinking (if you’re in a dark room) that eventually turns solid when charging is complete. Battery life weighs in at a solid 15 to 20 hours. Also available for the Playstation 4.

Nyko Media Remote for Xbox One

Ever wonder: “Gee, I wish there was a way to watch a Blu-ray or media app on my Xbox without having to fire up the controller and waste valuable battery life meant for killin’”? Wonder no longer! Nyko’s got your back with its Media Remote for the Xbox One. Which does virtually everything the Xbox controller does except for the killin’, because you’ll need two thumbsticks for that. Its compact size feels great in the hand with rubber buttons, a plastic navigation wheel, and a light-up green strip at the bottom that illuminates with every push. Its highly responsive with no lag for when you absolutely positively have to back out of YouTube before your mom or significant other walks into the room. (Worth noting: Kinect is required in order to use the remote to control cable content and One Guide functionality.)

Mister Sam Shearon’s Creepy Christmas

The happiest time of the year is also the creepiest.

Good ol’ Saint Nicholas did not start with reindeer. Every Christmas he would bring along a hairy half-demon, half-goat named Krampus to stalk misbehaving children. The hairy spawn of Satan stuffed them into his bag, chained them up, and dragged them down to Hell for a year of punishment. A warning for anyone who thought of causing mischief. This sure does not seem like the most wonderful time of the year.

Winter has an even darker and richer lore than Halloween. For centuries, people have feared creatures from ancient legends born of this time of year. Tales such as giant hairy monsters who live in the mountains and will snatch you up and eat you were used to ensure children didn’t wander off in the snow and become lost.

These were indeed just stories … or were they?

This festive feast of fear contains 40 original hand-drawn and inked illustrations from a variety of traditional beliefs and legends from around the world, including British, North American, Nordic, Icelandic, Austrian, and Germanic folklore. Mister Sam Shearon’s Creepy Christmas features characters such as Krampus, Grýla, Santa Claws, Rabid Rudolph, the Grimace Tree, the Wendigo, the Snow Bear, the Yule Cat, the Abominable Snowman, and many more. Ready for you to bring to colorful life with fearsome festive cheer, each page is also accompanied with a poem—a guide to these creepy creatures from the season of ice and snow!
