Behold the Geek! Holiday Gift Guide for Geeks 3

Welcome to another installment of Behold the Geek!'s holiday gift guide for geeks! The holiday season is upon us, and if you're having trouble deciding what geeky gifts to give your friends, family or loved ones then these series of articles is for you.

We've covered geeky shirts and awesome books for gifts, and now let's look at toys! Toys never go out of fashion during the holidays...even grown-up geeks get to play with some! Here are some fun and geeky toy gift ideas for the geeks in your life.

Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Cyber Sword (Toy Kingdom, P1,399.75)

Hear me out on this one, guys. Sure it's a over-sized roleplay sword based off of Optimus Prime's arm blades from the movie, filled with lights and sounds only kids might probably appreciate, but imagine if you will that you bought two of these as a gift for your Christmas exchange gift partner. Now imagine your friend dual-wielding two of these babies and screaming, "I'll take you all on!" as both of you re-enact the awesome forest fight scene from Revenge of the Fallen. Break out your wallets!

Iron Man 2 Mighty Muggs: Mark VI (Toys R Us, P1,199.75)

Mighty Muggs are Hasbro's line of cute vinyl toys with huge heads, Powerpuff Girl hands and lots of attitude. They're great for display and, if you're a dude, is sure to get some conversation going with girls who notice. Which is why you should get someone special this Christmas a Mugg or two. Might I suggest the Iron Man Mark VI from the Iron Man 2 movie toyline? It's the sleek and awesome movie armor design translated into the coolest Mighty Mugg ever!

Angry Birds Plush Toys ($14.99)

Ever played Angry Birds on the iPhone? I have (well, not on my iPhone, but on my office mate's), and I can attest to the strangely addictive yet frustrating feeling of launching mad birds on rickety pigs' houses. Now you can get the Angry Birds fan in your life the chance to own a licensed Angry Birds plush toy! These squishy toys are about 8 inches in height, and come in the different varieties of Angry Birds you see in the game! They're on pre-order here ready to ship by December.

The A-Team Van (Toy Kingdom, P1,000)

B.A. Baracus figure not included!

The A-Team van is one of the most iconic vehicles in pop culture, and now thanks to the recent movie remake of The A-Team, there's now an A-Team toy van available! I thought the movie was freakin' awesome, and you can spread the love by giving your geeky friends a 1:18 scale replica of B.A.'s beloved ride. It's got electronic sounds, a working side door and it fits most 1:18 scale figures (think G.I. Joes) in them. Sounds like a plan!

DC Universe Classics Action Figures (Toys R Us, Toy Kingdom, P1,299.75)

DC Universe Classics are some of the best 6-inch action figures around, with some of the most popular characters (and even the most obscure ones!) from the DC universe getting the DCUC treatment. I know most of us geeks collect action figures already, even DCUC, but you can spread the love by gifting some to people who could use a good action figure to fiddle around with in the office. And hey, Blue Beetle here is in development for a live action treatment, so you can say it's official TV merchandise!

Harry Potter Infrared Battling Wand (ThinkGeek, $22.99)

Just in time to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (whew!) comes the Harry Potter Infrared Battling Wand from ThinkGeek. If you know a Harry Potter fan who'd want nothing better than to straight up duel random people on the street with glowing sticks, gift them with these! It's got real lights and sounds and lets you shoot infrared beams at your opponent while you duel, fulfilling people's dreams everywhere. Now there's a toy that does something good for the world!

And that wraps it up for my ideas for great holiday gifts for you and your geeky friends! If you've got other geeky gift ideas, send me a comment and let's talk about it! Now I can't wait for Christmas!
