The Vault – Green Lantern Costume Snuggy Sleeved Blanket

The Retcon Punchers spend an awful lot of time looking for ways to celebrate our nerdy obsessions. This means a lot of time sunk into scouring Etsy, Deviant Art, Think Geek or whatever. Sometimes we see things so great we just have to share them… and then clutch them fiercely to our collective chest.

Who Would Love This: Sleepy/lazy cosplayers

Price: $29.99

You may be familiar with the distinctly unheroic feeling you get vegging-out in front of the TV, but have you considered the possibility that the problem lies in the unheroic nature of the blanket you use to keep your lazy ass warm? Well, the good folks over at Super Hero Stuff have considered that possibility, and have come up with their own solution: a Snuggie® with Green Lantern’s body printed on it. Part boardwalk cut-out, part blanket, this item takes the “superhero shirt with fake muscles” phenomenon to its logical conclusion, even depicting muscle-bound legs on people who can’t even be bothered to stand for cosplaying. Hope you always imagined Hal Jordan with Dorito-stained fingers!

Who Would Love This: Drinkers with very specific groups of friends

Price: $79.99

If you worry that people are going to drink out of your glass because they all look the same, this set of Lantern Corps-themed pint glasses is for you (or at least the Avarice glass). Toast l’chaim with the Life glass, give your designated driver the Will glass, or just turn glass selection into an incredibly nerdy party game (as if there were any other kind). Really though, there’s a glass for everyone’s drinking style: the Rage glass for angry drunks, the Love glass for horny drunks, and the Compassion glass for friendly drunks. Things might get weird for the person using the Death glass, but nine is kind of a weird number for a party anyway.

Who Would Love This: Batman fans, Norman Rockwell fans, fans of irony and Americana

Price: $10.00

This edition of the Vault is special, because NOT ONLY did I get the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr. Dos Santos at C2E2, I actually purchased this fine print, along with two others. This is one of those sorts of prints that I call “secret nerd art.” These are probably more obvious than, say, my Firefly vintage travel posters, but they still count. I love things that, at a glance, are not nerdy at all. It’s only if you look closer and are a nerd that you see just how big of a geek I am. I am going to frame all three of these lovely signed prints and hang them proudly in my living room. Plus, Mr. Dos Santos informed me that is going to be starting a Kickstarter to make a coffee table style art book of his prints, so keep your eyes open for that.

Who Would Love This: Blackest Night fans, deputy enthusiasts, people who thought The Flash wasn’t already over-powered

Price: $56.20

There are actually a bunch of products with this image on it. I chose this one specifically, because if you own an iPad and you’re on this website, you’re probably reading comics on that thing from time to time. ADMIT IT! This iPad cover depicts the single coolest moment of Blackest Night – the moment the rings seek out deputies on Earth to aid in the fight against Neckron and the Black Lanterns. It’s not likely that we’ll ever see these characters like this again – one of the few downsides of the relaunch… Immortalize this once-in-the-multiverse moment by using the entire emotional spectrum to protect your $600 tablet.
