 Actually, I picked up four Nerf swords (two broadswords, two shortswords) and a Nerf axe just a few weeks ago.  Yep, geek heaven.  Only thing annoying me is the lack of a Nerf shield.

And I've a PS3 slim too, for my Geek Games:  Little Big Planet, and God of War 3, and Katamari Forever.

I've been wanting a Nerf sword ever since I first saw it. Can't wait for my nephew to get older so I can get him one and we'll play together.

Man I want the Star Trek command chair. Only thing is where the hell do you put it without getting divorced?

 I remember playing Star Trek in the basement with my friends in the 1970's and setting up the bridge with boxes and folding lawn chairs.

Oh God. Nerf Sword and Axes? LET THE LARPING BEGIN!

Mike10, I am not married but I had to choose between a wife and a Star Trek command chair, I would tell the wife goodbye. 

I got my PS3 early so it is backward compatible so I could play PS1 and PS2 games.

I for one would love the lightsaber and Boba Fett with firing rocket pack.  The Captain America shield would also be good.

LOL at the Nerf sword and axes. Anyone remember the old SNL commercial for the Nerf Crotch Bat from season 18?

Thanks, but I'd rather have my XBOX 360 over a PS3 any day of the week.  I'm a pretty big geek, but there's really nothing on that list I can't live without!

Come on half of them aren't even toys. Anything over $200 is not a toy

Nerf swords would have great 30 years ago when beating each other with PVC pipe and bicycle handles!

I could've had Han in Carbinite for a under a grand back when, but the ex-wife said no way in hell are you spending.... what a profit I would have made!

1. Star Wars: Han Solo In Carbonite Limited Edition Replica

I actually have one of thse.  and I sell them.  So I can honestly say,  more people want these than you can possibly imagine.

They were cast off the original movie sculpt,  and a full size costs about 2500 bucks,  cast frontals can be bought for around 375 up depending on the color,  size, and thickness.

I disagree that geeks don't care that the Lancer isn't real. I'm both a geek and gun guy. I'd be in hog heaven to take that down to range, put some rounds through it, the fire up the blade just to see what reaction I get....
