  • And a million baneful words couldn't bring me to my knees.

Posted 12 November 2012 - 06:11 PM

Heads up to my fellow geeks and nerds!

The boyfriend has a birthday coming up and I'm trying to figure out what to get him. His interests include Star Trek, Halo, and World of Warcraft.

I've done some searching and can't find anything that really grabs me. I'd prefer some sort of model or figurine, and I'm leaning more towards Star Trek than the other two. If I did go the Trek route, I'd want something classic. Looking to spend about $50.

Ideas?

How about a Star Trek collectable instead of something new.  Remember all those christmas tree ornaments Hallmark had out.  If you have time go to a few flea markets or ebay.

Actually, his mom gets him a Star Trek (or something similar) Christmas collectible every year! He has several of them. I did consider going to the local flea market and seeing what I can find. Tried eBay, but lost out on something I really wanted, so I'd rather find something I know I can get for sure.

Hey there!! I just read your post and i am already thinking about an interesting gift about your bf..i think that one legendary's Spock figurine for his desk would be perfect, but i don't know whether it is too expensive...Otherwise you could give him a Star Trek Movie or Series, which he doesn't own...If you don't know about what Star Trek movies and series there have been until now, don't hesitate to drop me a message. I hope i was helpful!!

Okay I play WoW and would like to suggest that you get him the in-game pet that will probably be around $10 but the money (or part of it anyway) will be donated to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. I am going to do that myself whenever it comes out.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Thanks LK, I will keep that one in mind! I didn't even think of that. He has a TON of pets already, so not sure what he does and doesn't have.

Yeah, I thought you meant there as a particular action figure that was legendary.
