by Brian Walton on December 2, 2013
Happy Holidays! We’re officially past Thanksgiving, in the middle of Chanukah, and now in a final countdown toward Christmas, which means it’s time to get moving on getting your family and friends presents. If you want suggestions we’ve made guides for Whovians, Throners, comic books, movies, TV box sets & more. We even made a gift guide for people you barely know. With all of these guides, we couldn’t help but get in the giving spirit ourselves. We’ve decided that we’re going to giveaway as much of what we included in our gift guides as we possibly can in one fell swoop. Break it up and consider your Christmas shopping done, keep everything for yourself, donate it all to charity, the choice is yours if you win this ginormous prize package. To enter for a chance to win this massive haul of prizes, jump down to the comments. Leave your name and email address, then tell us which prize in the gift guide you are most excited about.
Fans of DC comics have a lot to be happy for this year. The triumphant trio of Supergirl, Wonder Girl and Batgirl PVC figures from Super Best Friends Forever are being included. If you prefer a stop motion silhouette on your shelves, the Aardman Shorts DC Nation action figure set is right up your “Crime Alley.” (I’m not sorry.) Fans of holiday exclusives will also be happy to hear we’re giving away an Ame-Comi Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn Holiday 2-pack.
While many fans were trepidatious about Before Watchmen, we found a lot to like in the prequel series. Highlights include Darwyn Cooke’s Minute Men and Silk Spectre. Included in this years prize is an entire set of the prequel series in hardcover form. As Fables begins its march toward finality, we’re also throwing in a Fables Encyclopedia, Fairest In All the Land, and The Unwritten: Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice. And for the traditional superhero lovers in the crowd, we’re giving Superman and Lois Lane 75th anniversary hardcovers.
To the Star Wars fans amongst you, we’re including Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and C-3PO business card holders from Kotobukiya. But, since we used the Force, we’re also giving away a full line of Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series. All of your favorites from a galaxy far, far away in 6″ form.
Lannister statue, White Walker bust and a GoT lunch box. But, if you’re more tech inclined than “Westeros will be mine”, we’ve got Transformers Prime. All 3 seasons on Blu-ray will be yours as well as a Transformers Generations Metroplex and a Predaking. You’re going to have the largest Autobot ever made and the mightiest Predacon in your home if you’re the lucky winner.
If you were hoping to fill your book shelf with actual books this year, we can help with the Superman: The Ultimate Guide & Batman: The Ultimate Guide. Other books we’re including for the occasion include Shadow Walk by Max Brooks, Mark Waid, and Shane Davis, Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to the Comic Book Universe by Tim Leong, The Art of Ender’s Game and J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst’s S. Speaking of JJ, you can own his vision of the Star Trek universe, as well as every other Star Trek director’s vision, in the Stardate Collection. Plus, Star Trek Into Darkness, so you can proudly say you own every Star Trek feature film. If that’s not enough, we’re also including the Mr. Spock Logic and Prosperity Box. So stick that in your warp drive and smoke it.
From the Doctor Who gift guide, we’re including the Eleventh Doctor & Dalek Mister Potato Head figures, an Eleven Doctors Mini Figure Set, a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Blind Box Vinyl Figure, a TARDIS Night Light, a Dalek Knit Cap and a Complete Series 1-7 Blu-ray Set with Eleventh Doctor Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote.

Let’s get busty with these amazing statues and busts from our various guides. The Kotobukiya Deathstroke & Catwoman ARTFX+ Statues will bring the right amount of evil to your Christmas eve. But a Sideshow Collectibles Life Size Batman bust will keep them in line. This holiday though, get smashed with a Kotobukiya Hulk Fine Art statue. If the big statues are too much, how about a couple of Dark Horse Hellboy 5″ Mini Qees. And once they’re all set up, take pot shots at them with a Iron Man 3 – Motorized Arc FX Gauntlet.
If the holidays get too boring for you and yours, we’re setting you up with enough board and party games to make you forget you’re hanging with family. The Funny or Die game, Trivial Pursuit Party, Zombie Cribbage, and Doctor Who Yahtzee will provide at least one game everyone can agree on.
What would the holidays be without a little love from the land of Oz. The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Set has plenty of extras and surprises to keep a fan of the Wonderful Wizard occupied for days. We’re also kicking in even more movies from our “I-barely-know-them” and movie stocking stuffer guides.
