If you have someone in your life that is obsessed with the shuffling dead, get them a Zombie hoodie for the holidays. This hoodie features the battle scars you earned in your fight with the zombie hordes. Clearly, you’ve had better days. There are bloody handprints near the pockets and slashes across the chest. There’s a deep slash across the back that reveals your exposed spine. There’s a bandage on your left wrist revealing bite marks. There’s a chunk of missing
If there is one thing I’ve learned in all my years of hanging around die-hard pop culture and comic book fans is they love life sized merchandise, and they also love anything autographed by a number of stars and creators. If you really want to impress the Star Wars fan in your life, own a bit of memorabilia, and help out a worthy cause, check out eFX Collectibles auction going on right now on eBay.

Yeah… good luck getting that through customs. Back in the 70s you could get one of thsee for little money, and get it rushed to your door for only a buck. Today… well, you’re probably better off getting a pair of X-Ray Specs. via Mike Sterling’s Progressive Ruin

If you are a fan of MSt3K, chances are you already have the fabulous songs of Mike, Joel, Crow, and Tom Servo singing it up in style. When the show was still in its early days, the musical numbers were some of the best interstitials on television. Some of the best songs were collected on CD back in the day, but now Clowns in the Sky volume 1 and volume 2 are available via iTunes, and would make a great virtual stocking stuffer for the MST3K fan out there. $15.99 for 45 songs is quite the deal, especially when the

For $30.00 it’s a tad on the expensive side, but money really shouldn’t be an issue if you truly love that special AoD fan in your life, right?

Harry Potter Voice-Activated Wand Flashlight Listens to your voice and turns on and off when

Professional Geek is one of those job titles that anyone at Major Spoilers would love to have, but being a business professional often means wearing suits and carrying around business cards.Â While there are not any Batman or Captain America business suits (that I know of), those that must be a bit more professional can still get geek cred with the Spock business card holder. Thirteen bucks is a small price to pay to show one’s love for the original series. Oh, and if you do know of a Batman or Captain America business suit, would you mind letting me
