Father's Day is right around the corner, hitting on Sunday, June 16th. There are certainly plenty of fathers out there who would love some geeky swag, and ComicBook.com has got you covered for some big-time ideas. Whether the person in question is a fan of superheroes, Marvel, DC, or whether they're a huge gamer, movie buff, or lovers of a galaxy far, far away, there's a bit of something for everyone here.
First, we're going to get you started with a few of my personal favorite items that I either would love to or have received for Father's Day. Who knows? Maybe you're just like me and you'll fall in love with a few of these.
Marvel teamed up with Adidas to produce a new set of shoes titled the Heroes Among Us line, which features shoes based on heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Nick Fury combined with NBA superstars like James Harden, Candace Parker, T-Mac, Damian Lillard, and John Wall. The shoes range in price from $110 (Captain Marvel) to $180 (Captain America), and you can check out the full line here.
If like me they happen to be a Golden Girls fan, Funko has a series of adorable Pops! available, featuring Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche, and Rose in all their adorable glory, though no cheesecake (or sadly Stan) is included.
If the father you're buying for happens to be a Power Rangers fan, well you're in luck, as you can grab Hasbro's new set of Lightning Collection figures around town at local stores for $19.99 as well as online stores, a line that includes Lord Zedd, Dino Charge Red, White Ranger, and Shadow Ranger.
As for WWE, feel free to grab WWE's Becky Lynch The Man Replica Jacket, so you can rep for the WWE superstar and look stylish doing so ($139.99).
But that's enough about me; let's get to more suggestions!
