Custom Activision/Atari 2600 Action Figures: If Only River Raid Had a Person in It

Professor X Fires Jubilee

Professor X Fires Jubilee
Let’s be honest, some of the superheroes created in the Marvel universe aren’t all that super. Sure, we have some really cool superheroes such as Wolverine, but we also have some really lame superheroes like Jubilee.

Gingerbread AT-AT Plays Reindeer Games
At Christmas time everyone loves to wear those antler headbands, even AT-ATs. This awesome gingerbread creation captures an Imperial Walker getting in the holiday spirit. And a little snowspeeder too. I would love to wrap some tow cables around it’s legs and trip it into my hungry and waiting cartoon mouth.

Nike LunarENDOR Quickstrike Snowboard Boot: Lights on!
There have been only a few Nike shoes with LEDs, but these snowboard boots take the top prize, thanks to 30 LEDs implanted into the swoosh on each boot. You definitely won’t be invisible on your next night run down the slopes.

LED Strips for Horses: Tail Lights
We live in an era where many consumer electronics have silly names, often with lowercase i’s, an abundance of z’s or a lack of vowels. But not Tail Lights. Because that’s just what they are, a set of LED strips that strap onto horse tails, giving the animals and their riders improved visibility and enabling owners to pimp their living rides.

Logitech PowerShell Game Controller for iOS 7: Welcome Back, Buttons!
Like the MOGA Ace Power, Logitech’s PowerShell is part of the first generation of gaming controllers that make use of iOS 7’s controller API. While both controllers only work with a handful of games for now, their Apple’s long overdue API for third-party contorllers means the list of compatible games should easily grow in the future.

Light-up Animated Dinosaur Christmas Lawn Ornament: Jurassic Holidays

Light-up Animated Dinosaur Christmas Lawn Ornament: Jurassic Holidays
We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet, but since the stores are all advertising Christmas goodies that suck, I figured you would want to see something cool. This animated Stegosaurus Christmas lawn ornament goes for $140 and it is easily worth twice as much because dinosaurs and Christmas go together like Fred Flintstone and Brontosaurus burgers.

LED Light-up Newton’s Cradle: Clickity-Clackity-Blinkity
I always loved playing with those Newton’s Cradle kinetic motion things when I was a kid. But other than being tested by the Mythbusters in a giant-size version, the classic metal desk toy hasn’t changed much over the years.

Jet Capsule Boat Looks Ready to Take off into Space
While this capsule won’t actually launch you into space, it will take you wherever you need to go fast, if you’re going over water that is. The Jet Capsule uses a propulsion system that is akin to jet skis, and I’m sure they will start zipping around marinas everywhere pretty soon.

blueLounge Sanctuary4 Has All Your Gadget Charging Covered
These days, almost all of us are multi-gadget households. This leads to a condition I like to call “chargeritis” – which is the problem we all run into when we have too many gadget chargers plugged into our outlets, and cords dangling everywhere.

Dragons Made from Circuit Boards (aka Motherboard of Dragons)
I may be a nerd, but it just seems like circuit boards make everything better. They are all shiny and full of circuits. And when you make dragons from old circuit boards, they look pretty amazing.
