Spider-Man 2 Collector’s Edition (PlayStation 5)
The incredible power of the symbiote forces Peter and Miles to face the ultimate test of strength, both inside and outside the mask, as they balance their lives, friendships and their duty to protect those in need.
Why We Like It: What’s not to like? Quite easily one of the greatest video games ever made, Spider-Man 2 is a dream come true for any fan of this character. With an expanded map, new characters, and everything you loved about the previous instalments along with some amazing new additions, this is an absolute must-have.
As for the Collector’s Edition, who doesn’t want to wrap their hands around 19 inches of Venom? Seriously, that statue is badass.

The Noble Collection’s Dark Wizard Wand Set
This painted resin Dark Mark display houses five of our Dark Wizards’ wands; Lord Voldemort, Death Eater Skull, Death Eater Swirl, Death Eater Snake and Death Eater Thorn.
Why We Like It: Max may be in the process of rebooting Harry Potter, but those movies are sure to remain beloved classics. The Noble Collection produces a huge array of props based on the franchise, but for any Lord Voldemort fan, there’s no beating this.
A fittingly frightening selection of Dark Wizard wands presented on a sinister wall-mounted stand, we love how it celebrates the Wizarding World’s shadowy side.

Mickey Mouse Funko Pop, Donald Duck Funko Pop, Nightmare Before Christmas Bitty Pops
Why We Like It: Well, for starters, they’re ridiculously cute. Looking beyond that, though, for anyone not seeking the intensity of battling Venom or watching some terrifying horror movies this Halloween, these are a terrific compromise which prove Disney and Funko very much know how to celebrate this time of year in style.
The Nightmare Before Christmas may be a classic holiday movie, but the newly launched Bitty Pops are also a terrific celebration of all things Halloween Town.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Slaughterhouse Game
One person plays as the deranged Sawyer family, dragging victims to their farmhouse and harvesting their meat for a grizzly barbecue. The other players are the unwitting trespassers, doing everything they can to escape a hideous fate. But in this game, there are no winners—there are only survivors. Will you make it out alive, or end up on the menu?
Why We Like It: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains an undisputed classic and the fact Funko has figured out a way to incorporate the franchise into a survival horror strategy game…well, it’s nothing short of genius. And, most importantly, this game is a tonne of fun.
This may not be for the faint of heart, but Funko has been knocking it out of the park with board games lately and this is another win for the company.
