7 Worryingly Geeky Father’s Day Present Ideas
Is your dad a movie buff too? Look no further...

submit to reddit

Let’s be honest, as fun as greetings cards are – sometimes, honestly, they really, really are – they’ve got nothing on a real, actually, genuine present. No, this doesn’t include gift vouchers, and no, another tie won’t cut it this year. So this time around on June 19, let’s actually celebrate your geeky movie-loving dad’s existence with some high-quality pieces of movie merchandise that’ll make his day, week, month, year. Go on, you know he’s worth it. And if he’s not, well, you’re probably going to want this stuff yourself – trust us on that one…

Stormtrooper LEGO Minifigure Alarm Clock

Price: £24.99
Useful for: Waking you up; searching under your bed for droids (N.B. Tatooine dewbacks not included).
Perfect for: Star Wars-themed practical jokes.
Also available: Darth Vader LEGO Minifigure Alarm Clock

When it comes to Star Wars-affiliated gadgetry, gizmos and other general junk, it often feels like the original spark of merchandising brilliance has been lost somewhere in Skywalker Ranch – perhaps under a ceremonial Ewok floor rug or a robotic Wookie’s foot.

The solution? Mixing everyone’s favourite space opera with another family favourite, LEGO. Cue some genuinely entertaining computer games, trucks and trucks and trucks of sci-fi-themed brickery, and now... this: an alarm clock in the shape of a LEGO stormtrooper. As well as looking pretty ludicrous/awesome (delete as appropriate), it also wakes you up – always handy in an alarm clock, we find. And as a special added bonus for Pops, all you need to do it get it to “Snooze” is whack its big plastic bonce down. Ever-so-satisfying, that.
