10. Loot Crate


The latest classic Loot Crate boasts a "Mixtape" theme and comes bundled with an officially licensed Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy figure. This collaboration with Marvel is actually the first in a series of Guardians figures you'll only find at Loot Crate.

To complete the series, fans will need to subscribe to receive the next four crates (which will contain Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Gamora, and Groot. Each character in the series will then lock together forming a final Guardians figure set any Marvel loving dad would be proud to display in their collection.

At only $24.99 with shipping and handling, this is a perfect gift for any dad who loves the team of A-Holes! Head over to Loot Crate's website now to secure yours

9. LEGO R2-D2


Updated for 2021, LEGO's latest R2-D2 is arguably its best yet. 

This features a tonne of cool features, including a retractable mid-leg that drops from standing to driving position, meaning he can be displayed (or played with) in any number of ways. There's also a rotating head and rising periscope, an extendable front hatch to extend contact tools, and most impressively, a secret compartment containing Luke Skywalker's lightsaber. 

For a dad who loves Star Wars, this is perhaps one of the best possible ways to keep them entertained on Father's gift, and a cool gift no matter how old they are. R2 is available wherever LEGO is sold. 

8. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Set to be released on June 11, the next instalment in PlayStation's hit Ratchet & Clank franchise arrives just in time for Father's Day. Thanks to the pandemic, PS5 games have been few and far between since last November, but Rift Apart looks like it takes full advantage of the console's hardware. 

"Go dimension-hopping with Ratchet and Clank as they take on an evil emperor from another reality," reads the game's synopsis. "Jump between action-packed worlds and beyond at mind-blowing speeds – complete with dazzling visuals and an insane arsenal – as the intergalactic adventurers blast onto the PS5 console."

This should be a blast, and seeing as the franchise has been around since 2002, we're sure your dad will have fond memories of this series. 

7. The Falcon And The Winter Soldier Funko Pops


The Falcon and The Winter Soldier may have concluded on Disney+, but the series is one that promises to have major ramifications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward.

However, just because the series is over, that doesn't mean new merchandise isn't still on the way! Funko has actually just dropped a new wave of Pops, with the new Captain America put front and centre. U.S. Agent, Bucky, and Sharon Carter will all also be available, while the likes of The Falcon and Baron Zemo can still be found. 

Honestly, what MCU fan wouldn't enjoy opening a set of these up on June 20?

6. Zack Snyder's Justice League Blu-ray


Unfortunately for those of you in the U.S., this one only applies to DC fans in the UK!

Released on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K on May 24, Zack Snyder's Justice League can finally be added to your collection on disc, and as the Snyder Cut has only been available on Sky Cinema up until this point, we're sure you could make your dad happy with this one on Father's Day.

There's even a cool Steelbook edition available, and this is an affordable purchase that the whole family can enjoy next month...just make sure you keep the entire afternoon or evening free because as well as the four-hour movie, it comes bundled with a making-of documentary.

5. Wizarding World


We've covered Marvel, DC, and Star Wars, but there are no doubt plenty of your dads out there who are big into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts!

Loot Crate's officially licensed Wizarding World crate celebrates Dumbledore's Army. To help you master the Defence Against the Dark Arts, this crate features an exclusive Hogwarts House Snapback, an exclusive Dumbledore’s Army Tee, an exclusive Hogwarts Puzzle, an exclusive D.A. Deatheater Cornhole Game, and much more.

Priced at $39.99 with shipping and handling, this is awesome and can be purchased on their website.

4. Disney+ Subscription


There are a lot of great streaming services out there, and pretty much all of them feature heaps of must-see content. However, a favourite of ours right now has to be Disney+.

This year, the streamer has added WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Star Wars: The Bad Batch is currently releasing new episodes every week, and we're just days away from Loki's premiere. Throw in Premier Access movies like Cruella and Black Widow, and there's a lot to delve into. 

If you live in the UK, there's even the Star tab, and that includes plenty of classic content your dad might want to revisit. 

3. The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet


Released as part of Hasbro's "Black Series" range, this electronic helmet based on The Mandalorian's Din Djarin probably means your dad will spend the whole day wearing it and saying, "This is the Way."

That could get annoying, but there's no denying how cool this is. Featuring a removable tactical light and interior welcome lights, your dad can imagine what it was like for this bounty hunter to suit up to track down his targets, or to protect a mysterious alien pursued by bounty hunters on behalf of Imperial interests.

Din has become the ultimate TV dad, so this feels like a fitting Father's Day gift!

2. F9: The Fast Saga Tickets


Okay, so this isn't released until June 25, but we're sure your dad will still be grateful to receive tickets for the blockbuster that looks set to kick off the summer movie season in style. 

In F9: The Fast Saga, Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. That danger is his brother, played by John Cena, and with the franchise set to head into outer space...well, this is gonna be a crazy ride! 

As an alternative, In the Heights is released this weekend, so that's a great pick for any musical lovers out there!

1. LEGO Spider-Man Daily Bugle


LEGO's largest Marvel set to date, The Daily Bugle features 3,772 pieces, stands at over 32 inches tall, and is crammed full of Easter Eggs for fans. It also comes with 25 minifigures, including The Punisher, Daredevil, Blade, Venom, Gwen Stacy, Miles Morales, Firestar, Spider-Ham, Black Cat, and J. Jonah Jameson.

If your dad loves Spider-Man, then this has to be the ultimate Father's Day gift. It's damn impressive looking too, and should take a while to piece together. There's a lot we love about this one, though the inclusion of the Spider-Mobile makes us particularly happy if we're being honest! 

The Daily Bugle set will retail for £274.99/$299.99 and arrives in stores on June 1st (VIP cardholders will be able to order theirs on May 26th).
