So you own the Han Solo in carbonite desk.  It’s cool, but it’s starting to feel a little too small, and it’s entirely too practical.  You’d like a Han in carbonite that’s truly life-size, one that takes up a massive amount of space with no secondary purpose.  Great news!  You can now own a life-size figure of Han in carbonite for just $7000 (some assembly required).

It’s always fun to drive a cool car, but what if you had the ability to own the coolest car?  A street-legal replica of the Batmobile from Christopher Nolan’s Batman films—aka “The Tumbler”—has been built and is now being put up for sale to the general public for a cool $1 million.  Yes, that’s right, this vehicle is 100% legal to drive on normal streets.  The vehicle comes complete with 44-inch tires, (extremely necessary) driver-assist cameras, and a stereo with Bluetooth and iPod integration so you can blast Hans Zimmer’s Batman score while driving the streets at night, searching for crime to thwart.  It’s not explicitly stated if the owner will be able to leap across buildings and shoot fire out of the back end, but it’s probably best if those features are not included so as to prevent citywide destruction at the hands of a very wealthy novice.

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.
