Welcome bastards to a new installment of “Stuff You Want, Things You Need, & Everything You Can’t Have” by yours truly, Eric aka geektrooper. I’m back to inform you about some of the awesome goods out on the market for your collecting pleasure. Now, get your credit cards ready and be prepared to shop!


Item: Flashpoint Series One Action Figure by DC Direct

Everything changes in a FLASH! It was only a matter of time before DC Direct drops a new action figure line for DC Comic’s big “Flashpoint” event. Starting off in series one is an awesome Flashpoint Batman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, and of course, The Flash. I have to say that I haven’t been that excited over a Flash toy in a long time, but DC did an amazing job on this Barry Allen action figure. These will be available in July for around 70 bucks for the set of four. I’m planning on picking up a set and chucking Cyborg on eBay.

LittleBIGPlanet 9-Inch Blank White SackBoy DIY Action Figure

Item: LittleBigPlanet SackBoy Blank White Version DIY Action Figure by Mezco

If you’re into designer toys, you know about blank figures. Toys such as Dunnys allow you to customize your own with paint or markers. With a little imagination, you can own a one- of-a-kind action figure. So it isn’t surprising to see Mezco create a nine inch blank SackBoy for some do-it-yourself fun. I think I would get one to give it a “Deadpool” paint job. You can pick one up in August for $21.99

Item: Star Wars R2-D2 iPhone Hard Case

Attention iPhone owners! There is no need to be jealous about anyone that has a R2-D2 DROID smart phone. Finally, iPhone users get some love with a bitchin’ cool hard case of our favorite astrometric droid. Whats even cooler is the hard case features sculpted details to Artoo’s panels. It’s NOT a cheap sticker or decal! The only bad part is that the case is made for iPhone 3G and 3GS. There’s nothing for us iPhone 4 users… yet. You can preorders yours for $29.99 and expect it to arrive in June.

Hot stuff! Back in 1979, Lawrence Noble was asked to do the poster art for Empire Strikes Back. Unfortunately, his designs get shelved and Lucas went with Roger Kastel’s now famous poster. Well, Lawrence’s design got some love in 1990 and now in 2011, the poster will be released as a limited edition giclee! Each giclee will also include a hand-drawn Remarque and signed by Lawrence Noble himself! All this can be yours for only… $374.99… Ouch!

Super Mario Boo Ghost Laplander Hat

Item: Super Mario Bros. Boo Ghost Laplander Hat

Damn I hate Boo. I remember accidently jumping into these and dying over and over again. Well, considering that Boo was a pain in the ass, he was quite cute. Now, Boo is yours as a laplander cap! Winter has pass, but its still chilly outside. This is not a bad ways to keep your ears warm. This awesome hat is available now for around 20 bucks!

Change Optimus Prime Shirt

Item: Transformers “Change Into a Truck” Optimus Prime Tee

I love parodies. Especially if it’s done very well. Inspired by Shepard Fairey’s “Change” illustration made famous during President Obama’s run at the White House, Fairey’s idea is given a Transformer twist featuring the Autobot’s fearless leader, Optimus Prime. I do say that I am very fond of this shirt as the Optimus is from the original series and not from “Bayformers”. These are available in all sizes for $20!
