The holiday season is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to hit the shops! If you’re looking for inspiration for gifts for all the important people in your life, ComicsAlliance has put together a series of guides centered on different themes and personalities!

The takeover of the ComicsAlliance crew by the IDW series Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye by James Roberts, Alex Milne, Brendan Cahill and others --- voted your favorite ongoing series of last year --- continues apace, spreading like a disease that makes us cry whenever we see toy robots talking about their feelings. We have affectionately termed this obsession the Queer Toy Robot Cult, a group whose membership is typified by a sudden need to have little plastic robots on your desk.

If you know someone who has succumbed to the cult, whether they're a new convert or a long-time fan, we've put together a gift guide to some of the best of these toy robots, and other merchandise featuring them, so they can let the whole world know how they feel about Transformer.

Several of these links will take you to semi-independent toy stores, but many of these toys are also available at chain retailers, or can be purchased online, either new or second-hand.
