It’s Friday which means it’s time for 5 Fandom Friday where you can get to know a little bit more about me and the things I obsess and geek about.
This week I’m sharing my wishlist of 5 Geeky Christmas Gifts I would love to see under the Christmas tree this year. Wink wink nudge nudge Santa I’ve already been a bit naughty and ordered myself some gifts online, so I hope I’m still on the nice list.
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-Shirt
This TMNT tee is one of the goodies I ordered online from Jukupop. Since it arrived I’ve been singing the theme song in my head, but I wondered why I kept singing ‘Teenage Mutant HERO Turtles’. A quick look on Youtube and I realised my 80’s childhood in the UK was censored!!
The US version is called ‘Teenage Mutant NINJA Turtles’ but apparently this was too violent for the UK release and so they changed the name and even edited out Mikey’s nunchucks! Cool story bro.
2. Nintendo Amiibo Figures
Ever since we got our Nintendo Wii U, I wondered what the little space was for on the left side of the gamepad. Now we know it’s to scan the data on the new Amiibo figures, which you can level up in games like Smash Bros. or get cool Mario Kart 8 racing gear for your miis.
I’ve already seen some very cool custom Amiibos, which I will cover in another post. I’d be happy with any of the main Mario characters, Link, the Animal Crossing Villager is so cute and the Wii Fit Trainer is hilarious in the Smash Bros. game play I’ve seen! It’s likely that I will be collecting them all at some point, best make some room on the figurine shelf ha!
3. LEGO Minifigures Display Case
Speaking of figures, I’m really into collecting LEGO minifigures and love the surprise of opening the packet to see which new character is going to live on my shelf. The one thing I don’t like is when they get dusty, so I would love some LEGO minifigure display cases like the ones from BrickDisplayCase.com They are more grownup than the bright ones on Amazon don’t you think?
4. Nintendo 3DS XL Retro NES Edition
Just how awesome is this retro edition of the Nintendo 3DS XL? I would actually feel greedy asking for this DS as I already have the limited edition Luigi 3DS XL and so I would give this to my BF as he doesn’t have one.
5. Polaroid Socialmatic Camera
When I think Polaroid, I think of cool instant photos with a retro vibe to them. But, Polaroid is giving us the best of both worlds in their new offering, the 14 megapixel Polaroid Socialmatic camera. It runs on Android to get your images online and to your fave social networks, plus it has an internet browser and email cllient. All that and more plus the ability to print off instant pics too! You can even put cool QRcodes on them and text. It costs a lot but how cool is it?!
What’s on your Christmas wishlist?
