Super Mario Street Fighters: Strange Combo Move

Super Mario Street Fighters: Strange Combo Move
I’ve actually never thought of combining the characters from Super Mario Bros. with the ones from Street Fighter, but for some strange reason, they do seem appealing.

RubberToe Rayguns: Weapons for the Retro-Space-Age

RubberToe Rayguns: Weapons for the Retro-Space-Age
I’ve always wanted one of those ray-guns that Marvin the Martian had in Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century.  While you might not be able to disintegrate a cartoon duck with these prop ray-guns, you’ll still look just as bad-ass as Marvin did (except you won’t have his helmet).

R2-D2 Soy Sauce Dispenser Helps You Find the Condiment You’re Looking For

R2-D2 Soy Sauce Dispenser Helps You Find the Condiment You’re Looking For
There are a few awesome things about this product. First of all is Geek Stuff 4 U’s insistence that this is a “soy sauce dispenser.” I’m not sure what will happen should you have the gall to fill it with something else, say honey or machine oil, but I wouldn’t mess with an astromech droid if I were you.

Sleepbox Lets You Catch Up On Your Sleep If You Forgot to Book a Hotel Room

Sleepbox Lets You Catch Up On Your Sleep If You Forgot to Book a Hotel Room
I once went on a trip with my sisters which was so poorly and haphazardly planned, that we ended up reaching our destination country with an unconfirmed hotel booking, headaches, and extremely hot tempers. We ended up wasting half the night looking for a vacant hotel near the area.
