Whether you’re a masked vig­i­lante or a de­ranged crime clown, you need a note­book. Where else would you jot down de­tails of sus­pi­cious neigh­bour­hood ac­tiv­ity or scrawl city-threat­en­ing schemes in ink as green as your hair? GB eye’s new range of DC Comics note­books (RRP £5.99 each) meets that need. Choose be­tween the iconic tor­sos of Bat­man and Won­der Woman – or per­haps you fancy the evil grin of The Dark Knight’s Joker? Also avail­able: Sui­cide Squad’s Har­ley Quinn and a cam­era-tot­ing Joker from The Killing Joke. All are hard­back, spi­ral-bound and ever so neatly lined.

New toys from Star Wars movies tend to raise ques­tions, and th­ese The Last Jedi Pop! vinyl fig­ures (price £9.99 each; prod­uct codes H4898, H4899, H4900, H4901, H4903, H4905, H4906, H4908, H4909, H4910) are no ex­cep­tion. Why is Snoke wear­ing a kitsch gold dress­ing gown? Has Luke nabbed Darth Maul’s lightsaber? Did Funko just re­cy­cle the Cas­sian An­dor Rogue One fig­ure to make Poe Dameron? New­bies like Rose Tico, a Porg, a Prae­to­rian Guard and an Ex­e­cu­tioner Stormtrooper are also here, along with new looks for Rey, Kylo Ren and Finn. Loads more are avail­able.

The Last Jedi mer­cha­lanche con­tin­ues with th­ese Lego build­able fig­ures (£19.99 each; prod­uct codes H1300, H1302, H1303). From left to right we have a TIE Fighter pi­lot, Chew­bacca and a Prae­to­rian Guard. Build­ing time: any­where be­tween 25 min­utes and an hour and a half, de­pend­ing on whether you find Lego about as much fun as as­sem­bling flat­pack fur­ni­ture. Neat touch: Chewie’s cross­bow ac­tu­ally fires! A new, lightsaber-wield­ing Rey fig­ure is also avail­able, but to be hon­est af­ter slav­ing over three of th­ese we lost the will to live.

Ever fan­cied hav­ing a drink with Won­der Woman? She’s a lit­tle busy fight­ing crim­i­nals and mon­sters at the mo­ment, so she’ll get back to you when she can. In the mean­time, why don’t you down a shot or two in trib­ute, with this pack of four Won­der Woman shot glasses (RRP £9.99) Our favourite of the play­ful and retro de­signs fea­tures a close-up of Won­der Woman’s smil­ing face, her red lip­stick pop­ping against a black and white back­ground. Catch us as we swoon, Diana!

There’s room for some raw stal­lion’s heart and a cou­ple of Sansa’s de­li­cious lemon cakes in­side this Game Of Thrones tin lunch­box (FPI price £6.99; prod­uct code H2979); the work of Half Moon Bay, it fea­tures a handy map of Wes­teros on the lid. Al­ter­na­tively you could al­ways use it for stor­ing for­eign coinage, mis­cel­la­neous screws, or tro­phies hacked from the dead bod­ies of your en­e­mies.

Af­ter de­vour­ing the con­tents of your lunch­box, you will need some­thing to swill it all down with, which is where this Game Of Thrones glass tankard (FPI price £11.99; prod­uct code H2967) comes in. Ca­pa­ble of hold­ing 500ml of grog, it fea­tures the tra­di­tional greetings “All men must serve” and “All men must die” (in both English and High Va­lyr­ian) in gold let­ter­ing, and feels pretty darn sturdy. Please note: mead not in­cluded.

This glow-in-the-dark, mega scale Mumm-Ra fig­ure (FPI price £34.99; prod­uct code F6422) is im­pres­sively de­tailed, but two flaws pre­vent him from be­ing a truly ac­cu­rate rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Thun­derCats’s scourge of Third Earth. Firstly, there are no dis­gust­ing ten­drils of spit dan­gling from his mouth. Se­condly, he doesn’t re­vert into a wiz­ened, mum­mi­fied form when he spends too long chan­nelling An­cient Spir­its of Evil. He’s also def­i­nitely not a toy, okay? It says so on the box.
