Ok everyone, this year we have some very, very awesome prizes to giveaway.

And we want to make this Christmas special for a few of our readers….

Up for grabs this festive season we have…


First Prize:
THE TERMINATOR Hot Toys T-800 Battle Damaged Version

Kindly supplied by the great folks at Hot Toys, this gem of a figure stands 12inches tall and it’s like owning your own Terminator…

Beautifully detailed and filly equipped and articulated, this is a must have for any collector’s cabinet or shelf.

Check out our full awesome review of it here


Second Prize
The LEGO Mos Eisley Cantina set

This set, supplied by our friends at LEGO, is like taking your very own land speeder to the universe’s largest den of scum and villainy.

Only, you know, smaller and very very cute…


Third Prize
Pulp Fiction Blu-ray box-set edition

This is a cracker of a set, supplied by the lovely guys at Lionsgate, it comes in the Macguffin that Pulp Fiction revolved around and contains A rigid, hinged suitcase-style box, Jack Rabbit Slim’s menu, Zed’s key-ring, Big Kahuna Burger bag, 20 Pulp Fiction bank notes, Four art cards and, of core, Pulp Fiction on Blu-ray


Fourth Prize
x2 Copies of Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo

The first book, supplied by our good friends at Titan Books, to take fans behind the scenes of Finn the Human and Jake the Dog’s adventures in the postapocalyptic, magical land of Ooo. Packed to the seams with concept art and storyboards, this lavishly illustrated tome offers an all-access pass into the Emmy Award winning show team’s creative process.

The Art of Ooo traces series creator Pendleton Ward’s early influences and work, then reveals how the writers, storyboarders, animators, and voice actors work in tandem to bring this wildly inventive series to life.

So, how does one get in line for a chance to win one of these superb prizes?


We need you to answer these three very simple questions.

1. The fifth movie in the Terminator franchise will hit cinemas next summer. What is it called? Oh, and we need the correct spelling.

2. Bruce Willis became famous after starring in a movie, set at Christmas, where he had to rescue a building full of people from a bunch of European robbers. What was the movie?

3. The Mos Eisley Cantina appears in Star Wars: A New Hope. But, what is the name of the planet it’s located on?

Think you know the answers?
Then email them to us, labelling the email ‘Christmas Giveaway’, to
Please include your name, address and age – Pulp Fiction is only available to people over 18.

All winners will be announced this Friday (December 19th) and items will immediately be posted out to the winners and SHOULD arrive before the fat man with the big beard does.
Only open to readers in the UK, no cash alternatives can be made and normal T&Cs apply.

Good Luck and Ho! Ho! Ho!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
