Finding the perfect gift for the favorite geek in your life can be hard, especially if you’re looking for a stand-out piece. I recently spent some time on Eaglemoss’ webstore doing some window shopping and here’s a few of my favorite things – and if you don’t see something your geek will love, be sure to check out their site – they have a ton of products across a bunch of different properties, practically something for everyone.
9-Inch Mega Dead Planet Dalek
I have loved Doctor Who forever…some of my favorite Saturday memories as a kid was watching Doctor Who on public television (WITF, channel 33) at 3PM. It should be no suprise then that Eaglemoss’ Dead Planet Dalek floats my boat. At just over 9″ tall this silver and blue Dalek looks absolutely perfect – the color is screen accurate, the sculpt is gorgeous. This would be a perfect gift for the Whovian in your life…especially one who loves the classic series. I seriously love this piece.
Eaglemoss offers a wide range of DC characters in their signature metal figurine line – but you cannot go wrong with the trinity of the DC universe – Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman! Each figurine stands just taller than 3.5″ and feature hand painted details. They’re priced under $15 each, so you can scale your gift to your budget, and like I said there’s a ton of other characters available
. If you’re looking to splurge, but stay in the DC universe- Eaglemoss also offers 13″+ versions of some of the characters, which are gorgeous.
Eaglemoss’ Xenomorph statue is based on the 1979 sci-fi classic Alien and it’s available as both a standard and in a glow-in-the-dark edition. Looking like it stepped right out of a frame from the film, this statue is cast in a specially formulated metallic resin and hand-painted to capture every detail. The detail even continues to the stand which looks like the decking of the Nostromo…with a crew hat at the feet of the Alien. Both versions of the statue stand 12.5″ tall, are limited editions and are priced around $150.
Perhaps the most standout of Eaglemoss’ products are their Star Trek ship models. There are dozens of ships available
– if you’ve seen a ship on a random episode of Star Trek, there’s a chance that there’s an Eaglemoss model available. For the holidays, the U.S.S. Defiant Interphase model caught my eye – mostly because it glows in the dark. The Defiant is lifted right from the original series episode ‘The Tholian Web’ and features all the detail and accuracy of their models with a cool glow-in-the-dark feature capturing how she was caught between universes. The U.S.S. Defiant model is die cast, hand painted and is just under 5″ long.
U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E 10.5-inch XL Edition
Sticking with Star Trek – Eaglemoss has introduced larger scale ships and they are absolutely gorgeous. Similar to the smaller scale models – these larger models are still made of die cast, still hand painted, but the larger size really lets the details shine. Among the XL ships available are both the original Enterprise and the Enterprise-E, which would be perfect gifts for Star Trek fans of any era. The original Enterprise is 11″ long and the -E is 10.5″ and both include a display stand to keep your ship safe. The XL Editions are priced just over $70.
