Boys and their toys, girls and their… Also toys. Geek Chic has met the world of fine living as of late with diamond-studded iPhones and TVs that can talk back to you. Destination Luxury is happy to present a few of the most expensive, ridiculous, and ridiculously expensive gifts for the geek in your life.
One of the longest running and influential science fiction shows of the past half century, Doctor Who has had it’s share of silly to shocking villains. None more iconic than the Daleks, who can properly be summarized as “hate machines with flamethrowers and plungers.” These strange little alien menaces can now be brought to your home for a cool £3495, or $5474.73
NAO Evolution – V5
Robots are cool. Your own personal robot? Even cooler. Your own personal robot who looks like something straight out of a Japanese cartoon that costs a cool $7,990.00? Well, that’s just perfect, isn’t it? This little robot comes with 4 microphones, 2 HD cameras, infrared sensors, this educational toy could be your dream of a robot buddy all grown up.
Batman Tumbler Replica
Ever want to feel what it’s like to be the Dark Knight? Well for a cheap $1,600,000.00 you can try out your best Christian Bale impersonation in this road-legal replica of his iconic Batmobile in the Christopher Nolan directed trilogy. While one can only imagine the cost of insuring this bad boy, it fills up any geeks hard to imagine being their own Batman.
Full-size Iron Throne Replica
The third replica on our list comes from the HBO smash-hit Game of Thrones, based on the George RR Martin Song of Ice And Fire books. The series features some gorgeous landscapes, gorgeous people, and gorgeous sets, with none quite as iconic as the Iron Throne. For a simple $30,000 dollars, you can have the dragon-forged Iron Throne in your own living room. The only real question is where to put it.
A Trip To Space
It might not be the priciest gift on the list, but this isn’t just a gift: It’s an experience. A once-in-a-lifetime dream come true where, for just a quarter of a million dollars, you can go into space. Brought to you by Virgin Galactic and that bastion of long-haired coolness Richard Branson, you can guarantee your special geek an incredible experience they will never forget… Once they actually start having people IN the space crafts, that is.
