Super luxe toys for loaded geeks (pictures)
Fine art from a galaxy far, far away
If you're a geek with a penchant for spoiling yourself, we've got you covered. If you missed that posh product you're looking for in our earlier roundups of luxury cars, yachts, smartphones and tablets, wristwatches, and even Apple accessories, there's a good chance you'll find it in this super-geeky collection of blinged-out swag that's less easily categorized.
Now that you're a big shot with a salary that ends in several zeroes, it might not be appropriate for you to wear that "Star Wars" T-shirt to conferences to show off your geek cred. Besides, it's way more impressive to hold that important meeting at your home office in front of your 10-foot-tall custom painting of an AT-AT Walker.
Rob Burden is the artist you want on retainer for such character-centered creations. His recent successful Kickstarter campaign commissioned three new "Star Wars"-related works, but for the right price, he'd surely consider painting a Picard, if Gene Roddenberry's universe is more your jam.
Steam floats your boat
The only thing better than a cool dip in summer is following it up with a steamy soak. When you demand both and don't want to be tethered to the scenery of a stationary waterfront hot tub, those who know go with the Hot Tug, a tug boat and hot tub in one.
The reasonable price of just over $21,000 gets you the top-of-the-line tug with electric motor and enough batteries to facilitate eight hours of sailing.
If you're on more of a budget, a Seattle company also offers a time-share hot tub sailing option.

Submerge in style
The problem with most supercars and other luxury rides is that they're designed for your everyday, run-of-the-mill wealthy people and not the uber-rich who moonlight as high-tech vigilantes.
If you want to roll in style and fly the geek flag at the same time, you really need a real-world replica of the Dark Knight's tumbler, like this $1.55 million ready-to-race version of the Batmobile.

There are also bronze and silver editions available for a fraction of the cost for those of you who would prefer to slum it when it comes to your precious metal audio system.
