These Geeky Christmas Sweaters are Perfect for the Season

Geeky Christmas Sweatshirts

When people talk about Christmas sweaters,”ugly” isn’t too far off. However, these particular ones designed by artist Drew Wise are anything but ugly. They’ll probably even appeal to the non-geeky folks who don’t get what’s being references in the designs: Guardians of the Galaxy featuring none other than the four guardians and the scene in the beginning when Peter gets abducted; Star Wars featuring R2D2, Darth Vader, lots of Stormtroopers, and the Death Star; and Doctor Who featuring otherworldly creatures, the Doctor, and of course, TARDIS.

Hit the break to check out the rest of the designs and the actual sweaters.

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Toothbrush

Doctor-Who-Sonic-Screwdriver-Toothbrush

This is the way the Doctor Who brushes his teeth. Well, okay, not so much on the way he does, but what he uses to, anyway. His Sonic Screwdriver is many things–a lock pick, a remote controller, a tracker, even a medical scanner. It’s probably the most-coveted multi-tool ever known to man, although it’s fictional in existence– and now you can own one of your very own!

It can’t exactly do what the Doctor’s can, but the Sonic Screwdriver toothbrush will make sure that your pearly whites stay white with regular brushing.

Doctor Loo: Where Doctor Who Goes to Poo

Doctor Loo

 

Outdoor toilets are commonplace, but this particular one in Warmley Waiting Room Cafe in the UK takes the cake. It’s inspired by none other than Doctor Who’s TARDIS. When the door is shut, it looks like a typucal replica of the Doctor’s time machine. But the door opens to reveal a Victorian-style bathroom, complete with checkered floor, a toilet, a sink, and a hand dryer.

The bathroom, aka Doctor Loo, is outfitted with motion detection sensors which turn the lights on or off as patrons enter and exit. The Loo’s creator and restaurant owner Justin Hoggars has also installed a doorbell of sorts that emits the TARDIS’s familiar wheezing sound.

If you happen to be in Bristol, drop by the cafe and take a poo in Doctor Loo.

You Need One: ‘Doctor Who’ Sonic Screwdriver Bottle Opener

Sonic Screwdriver Bottle Opener

When it’s not TARDIS, it’s the Sonic Screwdriver. These are two things you’ll find the Doctor constantly reaching for in times of need or whenever he feels like it. You won’t be able to get your own real-life time travel machine, but you can buy a replica of the king of all multitools that does one thing and one thing only: open your bottles of soda and beer.

Having a bottle opener that looks like the Doctor’s screwdriver might be a bit of an overkill, but it’s an awesome thing to behold that’ll make you the envy of your friends every time they come over for drinks. Plus, you can totally use it as a prop when you do cosplays or when you want to dress as the Doctor at a costume party.

The Sonic Screwdriver bottle opener retails for $24.

Make It Real: Doctor Who LEGO Set

Doctor Who LEGO

It’s surprising how something–or rather, someone–as popular as Doctor Who still doesn’t have a LEGO set to call his own. That might soon change if the set created by Andrew Clark gets enough votes on the LEGO Cuuso website. It’s currently has about 8,600 supporters, which is short of the 10,000 required before LEGO reviews the design and gives the decision on whether or not they’ll make the set into a reality.

Andrew’s Doctor Who set features all the well-known elements from the hit show, including the Doctor (of course!), his sonic screwdriver, and TARDIS.

Chasing After Daleks: Doctor Who Invades Pacman

Doctor Who Pacman Game

The Doctor isn’t one to run from a fight, but he’s smart, so he’ll run if he has to. Like in the Doctor PacMan game, for example. It’s essentially PacMan injected with Whovian elements, where the usual yellow dot-chomping dude is transformed into Doctor Who with the addition of a messy mop of hair and a pixelated bow tie.

Instead of the usual ghosts, ghastly Daleks (that’s Caan, Thay, Jast, and Seec, if you’re curious) are chasing Doctor PacMan through the labyrinth, where the occasional sonic screwdriver will turn the tables and have the Doctor chasing after them instead.

The game was made by Ruben P. Vargas from Rarity Workshop and you can play it HERE.

Not Bigger On the Inside, But Still Awesome: Stand-Up TARDIS Cardboard

Doctor Who Box

 

If you have two hundred bucks to spare and are a die-hard Whovian who would give anything to have his own TARDIS, then this cardboard stand-up that looks just like the one the Doctor has might just be the thing for you. The exterior features the time machine’s signature blue hue with the familiar “police box” sign painted right on top.

The cardboard stand-up measures 55-inches square by 180-inches tall and is big enough to fit a fully-grown man (and several more–although you shouldn’t expect it to magically expand to fit your entire gang!).

It’s available from Urban Collector for $225. Alternatively, you can just go and get some paint from Home Depot and paint over an empty refrigerator box.

Mini Flying TARDIS: Not Bigger On the Inside, But Still Awesome

RC Tardis

 

Owning this mini flying TARDIS won’t transform you into Doctor Who, but it will make you the coolest Whovian on the block. This flying R/C TARDIS is unlike your regular toy helicopter or quadcopter in terms of appearance, but you’ll be able to fly it with no problem at all if you’ve flown other R/C toys before.

The miniature TARDIS measures 3 inches in height and takes off and lands vertically. Aside from flying it, you’ll also be able to control its spin.

The Doctor Who R/C Flying TARDIS is available online for $49.99.

Celebrate, Don’t Exterminate: Life-Sized Dalek Wedding Cakes

Lifesize Dalek Cake

If you’re getting hitched and want to do it in style, then you might consider breaking from the usual themes and traditions and going for something really loud and bold instead. And if you happen to be a Whovian, then what better way to celebrate than to make some of the Doctor’s worst enemies a part of your party?

Daleks. I’m talking about life-sized Dalek cakes, like the ones a couple had Dinkeydoodle Designs make. One Dalek was the groom (cute tophat!) while the other one was the bride (it wouldn’t have been the bride without the veil.)
