The Top 20 Collectables of 2011

What is a collectable? We're not entirely sure - we think it's something that's not a toy, but still makes your parents tell you to 'grow up' when you buy it. Anyway, here are our favourite collectables from 2011.

What was your favourite? Let us know in the comments!

[Revelations: Figurine: Ezio]

8. Assassin's Creed: Revelations: Figurine: Ezio

His beard may be going grey, his voice may be getting a bit cracked and hoarse, and he may not be able to climb as fast as he used to, but Ezio Auditore Da Firenze is still the most badass assassin in the Renaissance! In this cool statue he is seen wielding a dagger, as well as showing off the latest addition to his arsenal - the hookblade!

[Ceramic Stein: Stark: Winter Is Coming]

7. Game Of Thrones: Ceramic Stein: Stark: Winter Is Coming

Perfect for parties up in Winterfell, or for feasts in King's Landing, or for just warming your hands while standing guard on The Wall. Featuring the House of Stark's banner and the phrase "Winter Is Coming". Of all the things on this list, this is probably the most practical, as you can actually use it for something other than looking awesome on a shelf.

[Artifact Box: Harry Potter]

6. Harry Potter: Artifact Box: Harry Potter

Literally every single prop from the Harry Potter films is in one of these boxes (that's a total exaggeration) including letters, tickets, photos. All kinds of things. You could probably use them to trick some poor child into thinking he's ben accepted into Hogwarts (if anything, you probably should.)

[Lightsaber Chopsticks: Obi Wan Kenobi]

5. Star Wars: Lightsaber Chopsticks: Obi Wan Kenobi

Next time someone serves noodles, put these out and count how long before people start fighting with them. If someone says 'stop playing with your food!' remind them that these are eating utensils, not food, and then force lightning them.

[Hogwarts House Pin Set]

4. Harry Potter: Hogwarts House Pin Set

Because wearing house robes everyday is a bit impractical.

[Normandy SSV  Ship Replica SR2]

3. Mass Effect: Normandy SSV Ship Replica SR2

There have been few spaceships in recent years to rival the iconicness (that might not be a real word) of the Millenium Falcon, or the Starship Enterprise, that was until we were made aware of the Normandy, Commander Shepard's totally badass Systems Alliance starship.

[Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 11th Doctor]

2. Doctor Who: Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust: 11th Doctor

Yes, it was delayed for what seems like an eternity, but it was well worth the wait - the 11th Doctor bust, showing the Time Lord in a classic pose as he checks the reading on his sonic screwdriver is absloutely stunning.

[Ice Cube Tray: Han Solo]

1. Star Wars: Ice Cube Tray: Han Solo

Sometimes, a product comes along that just makes sense. The only question someone could ask about the Han Solo Ice Cube Tray is 'how on earth did it take 30 years for someone to make one of these?'.
