In advance of Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World opening next week, we’re bringing you an opportunity to invite the Asgardian warrior himself into your home.  Sorry, it’s not actually Chris Hemsworth, but rather a sixth-scale Hot Toys facsimile.  Granted, this Thor figure may only be a foot tall, but he still packs a punch.  Included with the mighty God of Thunder is his equally mighty hammer, Mjolnir, which only the worthy (and your friendly neighborhood postal worker) can wield.

Available for pre-order now via Sideshow Collectible’s, the Thor – Asgardian Light Armor sixth-scale figure will set you back $229.99.  Hit the jump for more.

If you’re planning on picking up the extended edition of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey later this year, you’ll have a few options.  Obviously there’s the standard 2D Blu-ray and then the 3D Blu-ray, but Amazon has unveiled a package for the disc that includes both the 2D and 3D versions of the film as well as an exclusive character statue by Weta.  The statue, titled “Riddles in the Dark,” portrays Bilbo and Gollum as seen in the film and was sculpted by Gary Hunt from the Weta Workshop.  It stands at 8” wide, 5.25” deep, and 7” tall.  Of course, the set also comes with the Hobbit extended Blu-ray, which includes 13 minutes of additional footage and 9 hours of behind-the-scenes documentary footage.

Hit the jump to take a look at this exclusive figurine.  The special edition package will run you $69.99 and is currently available for pre-order.  Keep in mind, if the price is lowered at any point before release, Amazon will charge you the lower price.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition will be released on November 5th.

With the prospect of Guillermo del Toro tackling “robots vs. monsters” on a massive scale with Pacific Rim also came the promise of some really cool toys based on del Toro’s meticulous designs.  Those toys are now starting to trickle out, and Sideshow Collectibles has started the pre-order for an intricate statue of the Gipsy Danger jaeger.  At $399.99 the statue isn’t particularly cheap, but it is a very faithfully crafted piece of art, complete with battle scars and overall wear-and-tear, which is a really nice touch.  This is hopefully the first of many Pacific Rim collectibles headed our way over the next couple of years.

I don’t think you’re ever too old for LEGO unless you think you’re too old to have fun.  They’re geared towards children, but I’ve recently been building some sets, and I find it very relaxing and rewarding.  I recently spent hours and hours building the LEGO Palace Cinema and before that, I did the LEGO The Battle of Helm’s Deep.  LEGO has now released some more Lord of the Rings LEGO sets that you can pick up.  There’s the iconic stuff like the Council of Elrond and the Battle at the Black Gate as well as brief action scenes like the ambush of the pirate ship from Return of the King and the wizard battle between Gandalf and Saruman.  Click on the respective links to buy the set:

Geek Gifts: Flick Han Solo’s Carbonite Genitals to Turn Your Lights On and Off

I think at this point we can clearly see the appeal of Jabba the Hutt decorating his home with Han Solo’s frozen carbonite body.  The sculpture has been turned into an iPhone case, an ice tray, a desk, and other assorted objects.  But now the memorable image has reached its pinnacle by being turned into a light switch plate.  “And where does the switch go?” you may ask.  Well, I’m happy to inform you that the switch is Han Solo’s penis.  Not graphically his penis, but unmistakably and intentionally a phallic way to operate your home lighting.

Sadly, someone has already bought this item from Etsy seller WickedStudio.  If the person who bought the dick-switch ever meets Harrison Ford, he or she will have a great conversation starter.  Hit the jump to check out images of the frozen carbonite Han Solo light switch featuring his clumsy blaster.

Fans are understandably excited as the release of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 is now only a few short days away, but in case the Shane Black-directed sequel isn’t enough to appease your fandom, another Iron Man-related product is being made available—though it comes with quite the hefty price tag.  Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled a life-size Iron Man Mark 42 collectible, which is basically a human-sized action figure.  The piece stands over seven feet tall and weighs over 100 lbs.  Moreover, it comes complete with LED light up eyes, arc reactor, palm, and display base.  The figure will run you $8499.99, and I can think of plenty of other causes worthy of that kind of money, but the figure is available for purchase nevertheless.  Hit the jump for more info and some images of the collectible.
