Gifts for a Loveable Nerd

Lastminutegiftsfilter: My boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon, and I have no idea what to get him! We're both geeky but his interests run far more deep than mine do in terms of comic books and gaming and things like that. The problem is: he owns everything already! I plan on consulting with his roommate, who shares many of his interests, but I'd love some input from the hivemind on this. For reference, he's 28, works at a video company and we both live in Los Angeles.

Things he likes:
- video games, anything comic book or superhero-related (particularly Marvel and ESPECIALLY X-Men), film (especially horror/cult/b-movies), comedy, YouTube, Disney (he's obsessed with Disneyland). He also really likes putting geek-related art up in his house, especially if its vintage. Oh! And he loves football.
Things he already has:
A giant comic book collection, multiple subscriptions (video games, PS Plus, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, etc.), lots of geeky pop culture T-shirts, a few gaming consoles.
I would love to get him a piece of art or a perhaps a film club membership but they all seem so expensive. I'd love ideas if you can spare them. Thanks!
