Some poor geek just got a lot poorer.

For the Harry Potter obsessive on your holiday list, if you are a gazillionaire: One of just 3,000 $1,000 collector’s sets that chronicle Harry’s journey from page to film in eight volumes designed to resemble books from the Hogwarts library.

And yes, one of them does look like The Monster Book of Monsters.

The Game of Thrones: Season 2 Blu-ray/DVD that’s going to be released February 19 includes a lot of awesome things, such as:

- 19 animated histories detailing the mythology of Westeros and Essos as told from the varying perspectives of the characters themselves and featuring, in-part, illustrations from Game of Thrones storyboard artist Will Simpson

- A 30-minute feature about the making of the Battle of Blackwater Bay

- 12 commentaries with cast and crew including David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, George R.R. Martin, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington

- Never-before-seen content concealed in hidden “dragon eggs”

But wait, there’s more!

This week in EW: We take a closer look at Star Wars, the once and future franchise.

These are the drones you’re looking for.

You’ll have to wait three years for more Star Wars and six months for more Star Trek — but guess what? Battlestar Galactica returns in just four days.

That’s right: The prequel Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome will be presented as ten 7-12-minute episodes on entertainment company Machinima’s YouTube channel, Machinima Prime. The first episode will be released on Friday, Nov. 9 — that’s this Friday — with the remaining episodes rolled out over the next four weeks. In early 2013, the two-hour version of B&C will air on Syfy, followed by the release of an unrated version on home video.
