Holiday gift ideas for the game culture snob

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

It's a video game store, but it doesn't sell games.  What gives?

Insomnia Video Game Culture and Vinyl Toys caters to the consumer more preoccupied by swag than game.

Store owner Chris Unclebach shared with me some holiday gift ideas that you might find pretty darn cool:

== VIDEO GAME STUFF ==

"Minecraft Creeper 6" vinyl figure: "Everyone who has played this game has a love/hate relationship with the creepers! Really cool piece perfectly marries the two concepts of of video game items and vinyl toys! Retails for $29.99"

Street Fighter 3 mini series blind box figures from Kidrobot: "Collect all of your favorite World Warriors in this Kidrobot-made homage to the original Street Fighter game! Really cool molds on these pieces and each comes with a sticker. Perfect stocking stuffer at $9.99"

== DESIGNER TOYS ==

Lue Chueh's "White In Black": "This killer design from artist Luke Chueh is inspired by the negative of his painting "Black in White" and is limited to only 750 pieces world wide! Comes with an extra head and a really sharp knife (careful!) Sells for $119.99"

8" Dunny by Angry Woebots: "Produced by Kidrobot, this 8" Dunny was designed by artist Angry Woebots and is only available from Kidrobot specialty retailers. These guys always sell out fast, but I ordered a few extra for the holidays! Retails for $75"
