One of the things I like best about being a geek is that we geeks still revel in the Joy of the Toy. Sure, we don't always call them toys: "action figures," "art dolls," "limited edition screen-used stand-in photon-rifle prop" - whatever. They're toys, and as a girl geek I say the cuter, the better.
(Found via Super Punch.)
This adorable little Batman is only $7.99, if you pre-order him.
I wouldn't have thought it possible, but somehow they managed to cutify an AT-AT:
(About $45 over at Big Bad Toy Store, which isn't afraid to call it like it is.)
Of course, we always want the toy we can't have the most, so in my case, that's this guy:

This cute 3" tall slimed Venkman figurine came out last April, but was only sold in the UK, and they only made 150 of them. [pouting]
But wait, what's this? They make an un-slimed version?!?
Which is...out of stock. Curses! Foiled again.
Adding insult to injury, I learned that they also made this adorable t-shirt:
But that's no longer available, either.
You're killing me, WeenIcons. Really.
(And don't think the Star Trek captain makes it all better, either. It just makes it partly better.)
Plush David Tennant, anyone?
Better snatch him fast, though; Esty seller GirlCalledRic only has 1 in stock.
Any Kingdom Hearts fans out there?
I have this adorable chibi Sora cell-phone charm hanging on my purse strap, along with my felt PS2 controller.
(Play-Asia has been sold out of these for a long time, but I did see some available here for around $13.)
And here's the controller (I have the gray one):
They're 3 inches wide, hand-made, and only cost $7! I purchased it from rabbitrampage on Etsy, but sadly she doesn't have any available right now. If you're crafty, maybe try making your own? (And then sell more to me? Hehe.)
Or, if BioShock is your game:
ThinkGeek has these Big Daddy dolls for about $20. This bouncer version won't be back in stock until the 18th, though, and he's cuter than the Subject Delta.
(My inner 12-year-old just squeed a little. Now I'll just need an extra long Doctor Who scarf, some Jelly Babies, and a sonic screwdriver. [And yes, you CAN buy all those online.] Heh.)
I'm not sure how big this remote controlled K-9 will be, but he's available for pre-order now on Entertainment Earth.
Prepare to meet Cthulhu, Destroyer of Worlds!!
He also likes to snuggle.
And, hey, only $10 over at NoirNathra's Etsy store!
