Objects are often the most important thing on a television show or in a film. They represent a character's personality or serve as a key symbol for a scene or episode. But most of all, they are highly desirable items that audiences and fans want, but probably can't have in real life. Whether it's Dark Knight's Batpod motorcycle or a sexy dress worn by Eva Longoria
's character on Desperate Housewives
, we would love to get our hands on these items. They would make great collectibles and Christmas presents. Here are some notable TV and movie objects that would make great Christmas presents:The DeLorean
(Back to the Future
The DeLorean is a modified DMC-12 vehicle created by Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown and driven by Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy. It's futuristic design, gull-wing doors, and stainless steel body plates make it one of the most popular cars in Film history. The DeLorean would be a great present for car enthusiasts and anyone looking to travel in time.

Forget the family dog! R2-D2 can be man's best friend. Unlike the family dog, R2-D2 won't poop on the floor or drool on the TV remote. As you saw in the Star Wars films, R2-D2 is an intelligent astromech droid that performs many tasks. He can do the laundry, cook food, and recharge your cellphone. Who wouldn't want R2-D2 as a Christmas present?
(The Wizard of Oz
Dorothy's ruby slippers from The Wizard of the Oz are the sexiest slippers to ever appear on a movie screen. Dorothy used them to return to Kansas by clicking the heels together three times and repeating, "There's no place like home." These slippers would be great presents for any woman. You can attend special events with them or go to the nightclub. When a guy is annoying you at the club, you can just click on the heels and repeat "There's no place like home." Then you'll be back home in bed ready to go to work in the morning.

(A Christmas Story
The Leg Lamp was purchased by Ralphie's dad (The Old Man) in A Christmas Story. The lamp was shaped like a woman's leg wearing fishnet stockings. While Ralphie's dad was excited about the lamp, Ralphie's mom was displeased by it. She later broke it purposely. The leg lamp would be a nice present for single guys because they don't have a girlfriend who will throw it out the window.

Jigsaw's puppet Billy is annoying and a little scary, but this would still be a cool gift for kids on Christmas. Kids would enjoy this puppet, even though Jigsaw's creepy voice would make them hide under the covers at the night.

Unlike the DeLorean, this car can talk and help you out in certain situations. Driven by Michael Knight in Knight Rider (the original and most recent TV series), KITT is an artificially intelligent robotic vehicle with an array of features like: turbo boost, voice synthesizer, sensory system, and more. This is a guy's dream car. Not only would it impress the ladies, but it would also pick you up when you need a ride home from the baseball game.
The Fonz's leather jacket

Winter is almost here and it's getting cold outside. Fonzie's leather jacket would be a perfect Christmas present that would keep you warm and looking cool at the same time. Like Fonzie used to say, "Aaay!"
Floating Sliver Sphere

Sure the Silver Sphere was a deadly object in the zombie horror movie Phantasm, but in real life it would be a great present for your home. You can decorate your house by hanging it from the ceiling like a chandelier. You can save it as an ornament to put on the Christmas tree next year. You can even use the blades on the sphere to open a can of soup.
The Baywatch swimsuit is a red lifeguard swimsuit worn by actresses like Pamela Anderson
, Carmen Electra
, and Nicole Eggert
on the show. This would be a lovely present for your girlfriend or wife. Women can pretend they're C.J. Parker and wear it on the beach or in the bedroom.

We all know Mr. T wore pounds of gold jewelry on his body in real life, but he also wore them on A-Team, which became his trademark along with his Mohawk. Baracus' gold chains and earrings would be great Christmas presents for women and rappers.
