We'll admit to believing that Harley riders aren't likely to be huge Star Wars fans, but if your tastes manage to straddle the line between comic book fairs and biker bars, perhaps the Storm Trooper Motorcycle Suit ($1,150) should be in your stocking this year. Officially licensed, this amazing suit is made from form-molded leather, allowing it to replicate even small details of its on-screen counterpart, while built-in CE-approved body armor will keep you safe in case you swerve too quickly trying to maneuver around a restless Ewok.

"Why, yes, that is an iPhone docked on top of that sideways refrigerator. Would you like to hear it? Okay, just stand way, way, way over there, because the 10,000 Watts being pumped out by the Behringer iNuke Boom ($30,000) — no, it's not really a fridge, and I heard that every time someone says 'nuke' and 'fridge' in the same sentence, an Ewok dies — are likely to bust your eardrums. What's that? You'd like to take it outside? Well good luck, pal — it weighs 700 pounds. Why don't we just turn it up louder, and run to the door before the song starts? Sounds like a plan."
'Tis the season for eating stuff that you'll regret come summer, and since you're going to eat some diet un-friendly food anyway, why not gorge yourself on these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies ($20/6-pack). These chocolate cookies are spotted with what appear to be Reese's Pieces and chunks of bacon, giving them a rich, savory-yet-sweet flavor that you'll remember far into 2012. Oh, and if you use the coupon code HOLIDAY, you'll get 20% off your order — and a crappy Madonna song stuck in your head.
Complete your collection of Think Different posters with the quote that launched it all. This Here's To The Crazy Ones Letterpress Poster ($100-$200) contains the full quote from the iconic 1997 Apple commercial, the majority of which has been attributed to our late hero Steve Jobs, who even tried on the narrator hat himself before bowing to Richard Dreyfuss in the version that actually aired. Each poster is handcrafted, measuring 10" by 26", printed on 100% cotton, handmade Arches 140# paper, and is limited to just 500 prints — so if you want one, you'd best get to ordering.
Beat your meat like it owes you money with the Knuckle Meat Pounder ($13). Fashioned after a set of brass knuckles, it's made from metal -- obviously -- and generally looks menacing while you use it to flatten your food or soften up your steak. May or may not be legal in your jurisdiction, so remember to keep it in the kitchen, okay?

Lots of people can claim to have a big house, a nice yard, or even their own private airstrip — but virtually none can claim to live in an old abandoned missile silo. You'll be able to do just that if you pay the price for this Missile Silo Cabin ($750,000-$1.75 million) available on its own or in a package with a ton of extra land, another log cabin, and an airplane hangar, this unique home is tucked away in the pine forest of Upstate New York's Adirondack State Park, and is perfect for those looking for extra security, zombie outbreak safe haven, or a proper base from which to start their quest for world domination.

Remember when the Super Nintendo was released, and you quickly realized how awesome it would be if the GameBoy could display graphics that shiny — or even display color period? Fast forward twenty years, and your childhood dream has become a reality with the SupaBoy ($80). Powered by a 2.5-hour rechargeable battery, the SupaBoy lets you plug in your old SNES cartridges and play on the go using the built-in controls and 3.5-inch LCD, or connect it to your TV via the AV out and plug in two controllers for a retro gaming experience.
Forget the fudge — spice things up at your holiday gatherings by busting out these Chocolate Covered Jalapenos ($60-$90). Available in batches of one or two dozen, you get to choose the types of chocolate — dark, milk, white, or a few of each — to cover the outside of either sweet, spicy, or a mixture of sweet and spicy jalapenos, all of which arrive in a gift box that can be emblazoned with a seasonal message for just a few dollars more.
Ho Ho Ho-ly shit. The Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee HPE800 ($235,000) takes Jeep's top-of-the-line SUV and turns it into a veritable speed demon by expanding the factory Hemi V8 from 6.4 to 7.0 L and adding in a twin-turbo forced induction system to achieve 805 hp and a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds. Of course, all that power isn't useful if you can't harness it, which is why it also boasts an upgraded transmission system, 15.1-inch Brembo brakes in the front and rear, and a lowered, more sporty suspension, and to make sure no one mistakes it for the "regular" version, it also packs lighter alloy wheels, a carbon fiber front end, and a custom leather interior with an Alcantara steering wheel. It'll arrive in 24 well-appointed garages next year.
We've covered some minimalist coffee machines before, but damn. The Scanomat Top Brewer ($TBA) lurks underneath your kitchen counter or inside your island, using dual grinders to ensure your source is as fresh as possible, heating fresh water for every cup using a unique boiler system and cleaning itself automatically, all springing to life with a single tap on your iPhone. It takes just 15 seconds to deliver a cup of filtered coffee, 25 seconds for a shot of espresso, and likely even less time to empty your bank account.

Who knew becoming a ninja could be so affordable? Apart from the black outfit you made from scrap linens and black socks, all you really need are the tools of an assassin, and these Ninja Stealth Throwing Knives ($7) should work just fine. Arriving in a three pack with a nylon case, they measure 6.5-inches overall, with a circle loop on each end, and a blade that's reasonably sturdy yet dull enough to make them great for beginners — so you might want to sharpen them before trying to hurl them through another man's skull.
Named after the famed F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, the Confederate X132 Hellcat Motocycle ($45,000) is a fighter in its own way. This third-generation two-wheeled ride is built using the highest quality components possible, from its billet aluminum case to its carbon fiber wheels, all of which are hidden in plain sight thanks to the X132's unique au naturale design that showcases craftsmanship over fancy bodywork. Available for pre-order now for delivery in the first half of next year.
