Welcome to the third part of /Film's Ultimate 2014 Film Geek Holiday Gift Guide. We hope we can help you find gifts for your pop culture-loving loved ones and friends (or, maybe even yourself).

This guide includes a ton of cool gifts, including a wide range of books, graphic novels, toys, collectibles, music, movies, games, art and other fun gifts, the majority of which were released this year. I've also tried to include a wide range of prices, from small stocking stuffers to blu-ray box sets to huge expensive collectibles for most of us to drool over. Everything included in the guide is something I either recommend, have been recommended by trusted friends, colleagues and readers, or something that just looks damn cool.

Monday we published the first installment which focused on books, and yesterday we featured the best graphic novels. If you missed either installment you can still access them by clicking the links in the the previous sentence. We'll be posting the final two installments on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Sorry, there was just too many items for one post. Today we bring you a look at some of the coolest Collectibles, Toys and Games released this or last year that your pop culture-loving loved ones and friends might enjoy as a gift this Holiday season.

Note: All prices mentioned are rounded to the nearest dollar and were accurate on the week this feature was published.

E.T. Stunt Puppet Replica Statue

E.T. Stunt Puppet Replica Statue $400: This is probably the biggest collectible I own. Its huge, its in my office and everyone wants to take photos with ET. ITs made out of a light foam rubber and latex, which explains why its so much cheaper than most other life-size replicas (which can run from $2000-$10000) but it doesn't look cheap at all.

An almost life size re-creation of the E.T. Puppet as he appeared in the beloved 1982 film. This foam rubber and latex figure stands nearly 3 feet tall and is hand painted with lifelike detail. This amazing sculpture is a must have for E.T. Fans and makes for a great centerpiece of your collection

Gremlins 2: Flasher Gremlin Life-Size Puppet Replica

Lil' Mikey

Lil' Mikey Vinyl Figure from Mike Mitchell and Mondo Toys $85: I'm not a huge fan of Mike Mitchell's Just Like Us series of art, but people love em. I will say this, while I think the series is too cartoony for my tastes, this figure is awesome — it is a perfect adaptation of Mike's artwork.

Based on artist Mike Mitchell's series, Just Like Us, Lil Mikey is a direct translation of his take on Michelangelo. Featuring an articulated head, and accurate TMNT ice cream on a popsicle stick. Note: this item will not ship until 1st Qtr 2015. Shipping date is approximate.

QMx's Serenity Film-Scale Artisan Replica

QMx's Serenity Film-Scale Artisan Replica $7496: Another dream buy for any Whedon fanatic.

Quite simply, this is the biggest, most-detailed, most-impressive replica of Serenity ever created. QMx has spent the last decade in the tireless pursuit of this ship right here. And while we've produced many fine versions of Captain Mal's boat before, we couldn't help but feel there was just that little bit more we wanted to add, that extra bit of shiny we wanted to include. We wanted nothing less than to create the ultimate version of Serenity. Because until we achieved that, we can't truly say we've done the finest ship in the Verse justice. What you see before you here the culmination of that dream. No detailed spared, no interior left unbuilt, this is the version of Serenity never to be eclipsed. Fact is, the only way to do better will be to wait 500 years and buy your own Series 3 Firefly! Screen-Accurate Details Created from the digital files of the Serenity from the sci-fi TV series, Firefly. The QMx FX Cinema Arts model shop created the 3-D files, prototyped and 3-D printed this replica.

More than 250 parts — cast and laser cut. Extra strength. Steel skeletal structure and internal brass structure for main engine rotation. Interior bling.

Ichiban Toys Jaws Orca Custom Lego Set $29: This is a fan created lego kit recreating the Orca ship from Jaws. I bought the Back to the Future time machine from Ichiban before LEGO decided to make an official set.

Games

If you came here looking for video game gifts, I'm sorry. I'm not a video gamer anymore, and have in recent years gotten sucked into table top gaming. So I thought I'd share some fun movie and television based board games with you, alongside some current favorite releases or interesting bits like the first one on this list...

Cards Against Humanity's The Ten Days or Whatever of Kwanzaa

Cards Against Humanity's The Ten Days or Whatever of Kwanzaa $15: I did this last year and it was great to get ten mystery gifts over ten days. Most of the gifts involved Holiday themed cards for the Cards Against Humanity game, including one custom printed with my own name. It also included a full micro game unrelated to Cards Against Humanity. What will the CAH guys give us this year? Only $15 to find out.

The Big Lewbowski Pinball Machine

The Big Lewbowski Pinball Machine $9000 (preorder for April 2015): The ultimate expensive gift for a Big Lebowski fan.

Star Wars Imperial Assault

Star Wars Imperial Assault $69: This is my most anticipated board game of the year. Star Wars Imperial Assault is a miniature-style board game inspired by the game system found in Descent: Journey's in the Dark. While I've never played Descent, I've been a fan of other campaign-styled dungeon crawlers like Plaid Hat Games' Mice & Mystics series. Imperial Assault offers two different game modes: An epic expansive RPG-style adventure campaign, as well as competitive, customizable 2-player head-to-head experience.

Imperial Assault casts you and your friends into the climatic events following the Death Star's destruction above Yavin 4, and offers two full game experiences within the Star Wars saga. In the campaign game, you and up to four other friends play a series of thrilling missions woven together in a narrative campaign, and in the skirmish game, you and your opponent muster your own strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives. Whether you play as a hero of the Rebellion and fight alongside iconic characters like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, or command the seemingly limitless armies of the Galactic Empire, you'll enter the Star Wars universe in Imperial Assault. As an added bonus, Imperial Assault includes the Darth Vader Villain Pack and the Luke Skywalker Ally Pack. These figure packs mark the first expansions for Imperial Assault, adding sculpted plastic figures with new campaign and skirmish missions.

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition $42 I have yet to play this game but everyone tells me its one of the best television series to board game adaptations and if you're a fan of the books or show you'll love it.

A board game based on A Game of Thrones, a novel now adapted to an HBO series 3-6 players take command of the Great Houses of Westeros Updated second edition, incorporates elements of past expansions Features a streamlined rulebook and updated art Includes welcome new enhancements like Tides of Battle cards and player screens

Firefly: The Game

Firefly: The Game $42: This is a fun game, and you'll definitely get more out of it if you are a fan of the series. You basically live in the Firefly universe and must make your way in the verse. You decide who joins your crew, if you're going to be lawful, or take illegal missions. They have also released a few expansion packs which add greatly to the game including a combat option.

Firefly, the popular Fox television series created by Joss Whedon, comes to life in a new boardgame from Gale Force Nine. Compelling characters, great storytelling and an evocative universe have made Firefly a fan favorite for over a decade. Now fans of the television show and board games can chart their own course with Firefly: The Game. In Firefly: The Game, players captain their own Firefly-class transport ship, traveling the 'Verse with a handpicked crew of fighters, mechanics and other travelers. As a captain desperate for work, players are compelled to take on any job – so long as it pays. Double-dealing employers, heavy-handed Alliance patrols and marauding Reavers are all in a day's work for a ship's captain at the edge of the 'Verse.

x-wing game

Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game Core Set $29: This is a great two person game. Its a minitures war game with you controlling either the Imperials or Rebels. The only problem with this game is that the core set only comes with two tie fighters and 1 x-wing. Fantasy Flight Games has released a ton of more ships, including HUGE ships, and the game gets better the more you have. You can have fun with the core set, but you'll quickly want more — and its a big deep money hole.

X-Wing is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission! The X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What's more, X-Wing's quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.

King of New York

King of New York $39: This is the more strategic sequel to one of my favorite games, King of Tokyo. ITs a king of the hill style fight between monsters in the city of New York. If that sounds like fun and you like to roll dice, you'll probably love this game.

NEW CITY. NEW RULES. NEW MONSTERS. SAME FIGHT... TO BE THE KING! There's always something happening in the city that never sleeps. Maybe it's the lights, maybe it's the energy, or maybe it's the giant monsters trying to demolish the place! Get ready for Richard Garfield's follow up to the best-selling King of Tokyo! Who will be the King of New York? King of New York introduces lots of new ways to play, while still keeping the core ideas of King of Tokyo. There are Buildings to Stomp! Vengeful Military Units to Destroy! Six brand new Monsters! Every roll of the dice might mean that your monster feels the OUCH, as military units open fire. Will you grab the spotlight and become a celebrity Superstar? Or will you become the defender of the city and befriend Lady Liberty? Each of New York's boroughs has its own charms, but to truly rule the Big Apple, you have to control Manhattan. Defeat the other monsters and rule the city.... Become the King of New York!

Zombicide

Zombicide $66 This is a fun thematic minitures game, and its one of the games that got me into board gaming. Its a very cool looking game and is easy to suck tabletop newbies in, and the cooperative nature of the game will keep them fighting til the very end.

Timeline Music & Cinema and Americana $13/each: Timeline is a great and easy card game where you are trying to place all the cards in your hands on the table before the other players. The cards are placed in a timeline from oldest event to happen to newest, and you must place your card correctly in the timeline or else you get another card. They have like 7 different versions of thise game with different themes like Inventions, but I am reccomending Music & Cinema because obviously it fits out pop culture theme but also Americana because it features a lot of American popculture events.

Cards & Punishment $14:Our friends have created a Cards Against Humanity unofficial expansion called Cards and Punishment. I mention it here because they have quite a few cards that feature pop culture references. Just a heads up, apparently the cards were printed on a very slightly larger cardstock than the normal CAH cards. You can still mix them into your playing deck but they are a very tiny bit larger.

Cards And Punishment is an unofficial, unauthorized, underground, black market expansion pack for the most excellent party game, Cards Against Humanity (TM). This deck includes 35 black cards and 80 white cards. It is not meant for use without the original game. First, buy their game. Next, buy all of their official expansion packs. After that, buy an overpriced sandwich for lunch. If you have any money left over, maybe consider impulse buying this pack. Cards Against Humanity (TM) is a trademark of Cards Against Humanity LLC and is in no way associated with Cards And Punishment.

Writer Emergancy Pack By John August: Not really a game but a useful tool printed on a deck of cards. Hollywood screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Go, Frankenweenie) kickstarted this project. The deck of cards help writers break through writers block by presenting suggestions and exercises that will get the keyboard clacking agin.

Writer Emergency Pack contains 26 illustrated cards, each featuring a different idea for getting unstuck. The notion of using cards to help you write isn't new. Writers have long used tarot cards, looking for meaning in the illustrations, or decks like Oblique Strategies, with its koan-like prompts ("Repetition is a form of change"). The ideas in Writer Emergency Pack are designed to be less abstract, and more immediately useful. They're specifically tailored to people writing fiction, from novels to scripts, poems to plays. The cards focus on story, character, and conflict.
