51d8Bs7P3jL. SL160  Christmas Gifts For Your Geek Part Three: Movie And TV Lego ToysOh come on, put that sneer away and admit you think this stuff is cool. Lego (or Legos to our US readers – I’ve never really understood the plural use) is an awesome toy line for kids to be into, and aside from the years of fun you can have making random blocks of coloured bricks, there is a huge geek interest in Lego too.

This mainly centres around the movie and TV tie-in Lego toys that are available, and they all make great Christmas gifts for fanboys and fangirls. Think of them as the middle out of a giant Kinder Surprise egg (minus the creepy 80s advertisement).

They’re a blast to put together and rework to your own ideas, and there are enough of them to check out to ensure that every geek gets a Lego set they can cherish (or indeed, carp on about how they missed an essential detail from a gun turret… I know what you people are like, as I’m just as bad).

Or, in the case of examples like the Indiana Jones Lego Toys range, you could use them to come up with your own take on the fourth film, and, y’know, make it not suck so much.

The biggest section of the Lego movie tie in toys is definitely their range of Star Wars Lego toys, kits and dioramas, which has to be seen to be believed, but other big sellers also include Batman Lego Toys, Harry Potter Lego toys and even Spongebob Squarepants Lego toys.

So if the helicopter-beanie wearing geek alumni in your world are looking for something a bit different and a lot of fun this Christmas, think lego! or if you fly the stars and stripes, Legos!
