    What nerd paraphernalia did you get?

    It's Christmas morning here in Australia, and I was wondering what nerd paraphernalia (as my wife calls it) , or non nerd, people got for Christmas?

    Amongst exciting things like a new hose and hat I got the Forgeworld Horus Heresy book from my lovely wife.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.

    Right now I only got gifts from the GF, so I will update this post as I get more.

    Now for the nerdy part, she got my an Optimus Prime figure which I really love. She also got me a really kick ass Nixon watch that is really way too expensive considering all the money we sunk in a new house, dog and renovations this year.

    I couldn't be happier with my gifts, out of all the dozens of versions of Optimus and the hundred watches Nixon make, she picked exactly the ones I would have liked the most and in the right colors. Either I talk in my sleep, or she's a psychic.

    EDIT: Brother gave me a bunch of zombie related DVD/Blurays

    When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming like the other people in his car.

    Got those old 5th edition lizardmen collecting dust? PM me, I really need more metal skinks with javelins.

    Or you spoke psychically to her while you and/or her was asleep.

    Re: What nerd paraphernalia did you get?

    Christmas isn't for another day over here in the USA, but I honestly don't expect anything nerdy nor hobby related as I'm the only one who truly supports myself in this hobby. My wife would be happy for me to not purchase anymore... too bad for her as I've just bought another $150 worth of GW Fantasy mini's off Ebay. hehe. Merry Christmas to everyone!

    My wife got me an airbrush set complete with a small spray booth. Now I just need to learn how to use it

    EDIT: and my daughter gave me a cool set of pictures she did with The Joker, Harley and Bats as separate paintings in the same frame.

    Merry Christmas to all of you.

    I got the Futurama DVD collector's edition in the "Bender" head display case. I am currently bouncing between a borderline nerd-gasm and trying to work out how to turn it into a mask whilst perfecting my "Kill all humans" speech. I was not expecting this at all and am a very happy bunny.

    Re: What nerd paraphernalia did you get?

    I got a new harmonica if you wish to call that nerdy, a book on english witchcraft and magic, one of the new Pokemon games, Kili and Fili action figures, some marvel themed shower stuff, a very nice Tolkien bestiary, and a chaos biker from a friend I had not seen in a long time. More nerdy stuff than I usually get, but I have to say I have been more occupied with my new cocktail making kit, Martini's all round.
