Build On Brick Bookends Hold Books in Blocky Style

Build On Brick Bookends Hold Books in Blocky Style
I was totally into Choose Your Own Adventure books growing up. I remember begging for these Darth Vader helmet bookends from the book fair at school growing up to hold my adventure book collection. Sadly, when the Vader bookends came in, they sucked and fell down if you put more than a couple books between them.

Watch as this presumably drunk $8,000 humanoid NAO robot tries to feed a dog a Pop-Tart. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned. The owner hands him the toaster pastry, and the robot is all impressed saying, “Wow!” as it examines the treat.

Fan Sends Bethesda Thousands of Bottle Caps to Pre-order Fallout 4: Forward Thinking
Imgur member GatorMacheteJr says he loved Fallout 3 so much that he started saving bottle caps. I say he’s just lazy. In any case, after about 7.5 years he had amassed about 2,240 bottle caps, which together weighed about 11 pounds.

Batarang Letter Opener is Worthy of a Billionaire Crime Fighter

Batarang Letter Opener is Worthy of a Billionaire Crime Fighter
One of my all time favorite Batman weapons is the Batarang. It’s a knife that looks like the bat symbol that returns to the thrower. I know all of Batman is make believe, but I always wondered how Batman kept from chopping off his fingers when it came back to him.

Printed Witcher 3 Gwent Cards Are All Weak to Torrential Rain

Printed Witcher 3 Gwent Cards Are All Weak to Torrential Rain
Gwent is the new hit digital card game from CD Projekt Red. It comes with an RPG mini game where you help a pretty warlock. It’s cool, but it’s no Gwent. So it’s no surprise that fans would want to enjoy it offline, just like what Redditor Ayzkalyn did.

Critical Hit D20 Mug: +4 Caffeination

Critical Hit D20 Mug: +4 Caffeination
One of the coolest things that I have seen in a long time turned up last September with that D20 Critical Hit cake pan that made cakes that looked like the dreaded 20-sided dice from Dungeons & Dragons.

Fallout Shelter Puts You in Charge of a Vault from ‘Fallout’
Everyone knows the vault from the Fallout games. It’s usually where you begin in the game. Well, now you can get to know the vault much better. Fallout Shelter is a new mobile game by Bethesda Softworks that puts you in charge of one of the vaults.

This LEGO Block Wedding Cake Is Still Under Construction
This wedding cake was created by Cupcakes by SJ for a cousin’s wedding day. The interesting thing about this cake is that it will never be complete. I mean, because it looks like it’s under construction.

Spinning Moon and Titan Globes Spin Me Right Round

Spinning Moon and Titan Globes Spin Me Right Round
A few days back I talked a bit about a spinning Mars globe that let you see the red planet in all its 4.5-inch glory. If you want to add to your tiny, spinning astral collection, ThinkGeek has a couple more spinning globes, these ones based on moons.

3D Printed Joker Mask: Why so Hideous?

3D Printed Joker Mask: Why so Hideous?
Artist Stefanos Anagnostopoulos made a replica of the Joker’s infamous face mask using a 3D printer. Stefanos’ grisly paint job pushes it to the stuff of nightmares. I think the absence of the Joker’s green hair also makes the mask scarier than its comic book counterpart.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Action Figure is Gigantic

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Action Figure is Gigantic
Collectors don’t like to call the action figures they collect dolls. Dolls are for kids, action figures are for anyone who wants to collect them after all. This gigantic Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Link action figure is more of a doll than an action figure to me.
