Awesome Batmobile Baby Stroller: The Dark Tot
The folks behind the web series Super-Fan Builds are back with another crazy build. This time, some lucky Bat-kid got a kick-ass Batmobile Tumbler stroller. Previously, the guys built a Groot swing and a Hobbit Hole catbox, but I think this is much cooler.

Cadbury Chestburster Creme Egg: No Bunny Knows Easter like an Alien

Flying Avengers Helicarrier Actually Handles Aircraft
One of the coolest things about the Avengers movie was the massive flying helicarrier that had all the people and aircraft aboard. That was awesome and I would love to see that happen in the real world.
