Computer Toppers

Updated on December 8, 2012

A Great Gift / Companion for Geeks

The computer topper is the perfect gift for your computer geek friends! Since they spend oodles of time in front of their PC or laptop, they will always remember you when they see the cool figurine keeping them company on their monitor or CPU. Toppers come in a lot of different designs and characters, from comic book characters to gargoyles, so you can even cater to another one of their hobbies. Just imagine how ecstatic a DC comic fan / computer geek will be when they see a Batman computer sitter!

Take my word for it: I'm a self-confessed computer geek myself ;)

The Batman Computer Sitter - Retro Batman Comic Style

This is the best computer sitter to give to someone who loves to read comic books, especially from DC comics. I love that they donned him in the classic Batsuit - gray and blue. It adds a hint of nostalgia to the piece; not to mention, blue is an appealing color to see on top of the computer monitor. The cherry on top for this topper is the way Batman is crouching on your monitor, like he was scouting Gotham City for bad guys or ready for attack. It's a stance we all associate with this action hero.

Everyone loves Batman. Who wouldn't want Batman looking at them from the monitor? Who knows, it might improve productivity too, as you imagine Batman giving you a dangerous glare each time you deviate from work.

 

The Wonder Woman Computer Sitter - Girl Power!

Here's a great one for females and another DC comic favorite! I love how she is holding her ever trusty lasso weapon and how she's seated so daintily.

Here's a fun piece for fans of Wonder Woman, both males and females alike! Aside from being a computer sitter, her head also bobbles for that added touch of hilarity

 

Spiderman on top of my Computer - Marvel Comics, represent!

If you're a fan of the Marvel Universe more than the DC Universe, then Spidey is for you! I am pretty sure everyone knows Spiderman, considering he's been featured in so many movies recently (and by two different actors no less!) The piece has been made to copy the young hero's most famous stance too.

My geek senses are tingling with this bobble head computer topper.

Every geek knows (or SHOULD know) Big Bang Theory and Sheldon!

Granted, this bobble head's face does not bear an uncanny resemblance to Sheldon, but anyone who sees it with the outfit (Flash t-shirt) will recognize Sheldon faster than you can say "Bazinga"!

Star Wars Characters on top of your Monitor

Star Wars has enjoyed a cult following since the Harrison Ford flick showed. It's been featured in many movies, too; a notable one is "Fanboys" which focuses on a group of fanatics on a mission to see the screening of Star Wars before anybody else. The characters are so well-known that they have inspired many other movies and shows. With all this in mind, it's hard to go wrong when you give a Star Wars computer topper as a gift!

Who wouldn't want the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy to be poised on top of his/her computer monitor?

Because of its bigger base, this isn't something to be placed on top of the monitor. Instead, place this on top of your CPU or shelf. I had to feature this because it comes with a beaming light saber!

 

Harry Potter Sitters - Hermione on your Computer

Harry Potter is loved by many - kids and adults alike! Which character would better suit your computer monitor than Hermione Granger, the intelligent know-it-all!

If she spouted some words of wisdom and helped you out with debugging your code, or doing your homework, she'd be perfect! Take note though that she doesn't look anything like the actress, but the robe will help get the Harry Potter vibe across. Also, its base is big so it will only fit old CRT type monitors. For the newer models, it'd be best if she stayed on top of a CPU instead.
