If I told them once, I told them a hundred times, to put Spinal Tap first, then Puppet Show last. Now’s your chance to be the real headline act when you put on a show with this collection of goofy looking alien finger puppets.
I can’t decide which one is my favorite.
We used to feature lots of awesome PC casemods here on Technabob, but the rise of laptops and mobile devices has all but killed the desktop PC except for high-end gaming and professional workstations. So with that, the number and frequency of cool mods has decreased dramatically.
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s wild comic book series Dark Nights: Metal is a merchandise machine. But even with its squad of evil Justice League Batmen, DC Collectibles is starting with the Dark Knight as his normal ass-kicking self.
This 12″ polystone statue is based on one of the many variant covers that DC Comics released for the series’ first issue, and was drawn by Capullo himself.
Despite what science fiction movies tell us, real world robots aren’t all creepy and trying to murder us. They build cars, assemble electronic gadgets, disarm bombs, and take on tasks humans don’t want to do. But this robot really does want to kill.
Are you a Nintendo freak? Then you probably have spent your fair share of time with Mario and his pals. Now, you can bring a little bit of the Mushroom Kingdom to your own kingdom with this duo of fun lamps from ThinkGeek.
Max Factory and Good Smile Company begrudgingly present Yugi Muto’s rival and Yu-Gi-Oh‘s ironic dweeb hater, Seto Kaiba.

Halloween is nearly upon us, and it’s time to get your last minute costume ideas figured out, stat. If you’re looking for a simple costume that you’re not likely to see others wearing, consider going as a slice of pizza.
This handmade pizza face mask from Rhythm Box Masks is the perfect things for fans of New York style pizza.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures get a ton of alternate and crossover versions, but Playmates’ Halloween offering has to be an instant classic. It’s a mashup of New York weirdest: TMNT and Ghostbusters.
The mashup casts Raphael as Winston, Leonardo as Ray, Mike as Pete and of course Donatello as Egon.
Have you ever wondered how they keep things so clean on the Death Star? Well it turns out those little droids running around the floor of the place are little vacuum cleaners. At least that’s what I’ve been told.
Basic drones are a dime a dozen these days, turning up everywhere from Walmart to your local 7-Eleven. But most of them share a few drawbacks – they’re cumbersome to carry around, easy to damage, and their spinning propellers can be a hazard to anyone who goes near them.
We all know Mario is an Italian plumber with overalls and a big black caterpillar mustache. However, most people don’t know the true origin story of Nintendo’s most popular character.
As part of its series 8-bit Legacy: The Curious History of Video Games, the guys from Great Big Story sat down with game designer Shigeru Miyamoto to learn about the earliest days of Mario, and how he came up with the character.
If there’s one thing I learned from my mother, it’s that 250% of my body heat leaves through my head and I need to put a hat on or I’ll catch a death of cold. That said, I still don’t wear hats in the winter as much as I really should.
One of the greatest incarnations of Rick Sanchez in the multiverse has to be Pickle Rick, who appeared for the first time this past August on season 3, episode 3. While he starts off completely ineffective, Pickle Rick quickly becomes a vicious killing machine thanks the suit he cobbles together from cockroach and rat parts.
