What else could a nerd want?

Holiday gift set ideas!

Tis the season to get presents, or as Cartman sings, “Jesus was born and so I get presents. Thank you Jesus for beeeeeiiiing born.”. But on a serious note, what do us nerds want.

The usual go-to for me is a lovely Blu-Ray box set. This year has a few great items worth looking at.

Lord of the Rings: Extended Edition. This is a set I’ve been hoping for ever since I got the regular edition in 09. I know this would mean my 3rd copy of the complete trilogy, but it would be my first of the extended edition in beautiful high def. The extra hours of footage makes for an epic all day marathon. (drinking game obviously included).

Star Wars: The Complete Saga. In order to ramp up interest before the re-rerelease of the saga in 3D, Lucas has finally put out our beloved story in the wonders of Blu-Ray. As a total Fan Boy, I can’t wait to get my hands on this. Listen Santa. There are a lot of little Lukes and Leias out there who would be angels to get a copy of this.

Last, but not least, is the Harry Potter collection. For you Muggles who can’t get enough of the chosen one (and don’t already own all the movies) this one is for you. Now, this series makes an all day marathon pretty hard, but being able to go from the cute little rascals to the powerful wizards of the Deathly Hollows, might just tickle your fancy.

Which one do I want? Well, today Amazon has a deal on Lord of the Rings. $49.99 for the extended edition. That $70 of the regular price is pretty tempting. Seeing as I already have Harry Potter, and I’m in more of a sword mood, than light saber mood, I have to go with that great deal on the one collection that rules them all.

What series are you looking forward to?

Happy shopping,

P.S. I would have a link to the Amazon deal, but Illinois apparently does not like those of us who share information.

    • More like, they hate google affiliates because of the whole sales tax thing. Didn’t you know that Illinois is broke and desperate for money?

  2. I got the SW complete set for myself and my nephews x-mas gift. Two blu-ray sets for 100 through Amazon was a steal. Definitely going to have to look into the LoR trilogy to get myself amped up for the Hobbit in 2012.
