Meowlting Catpuccino Figure: For Cat, Coffee, and Ice Cream Lovers
Over the years, the world of collectible figures has gotten more and more creative, playing with proportion, envisioning characters in cartoony forms, increasing their levels of detail and movement, and much more. And sometimes figures are just plain wackadoo, and I love them for that reason.

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow
The dot-matrix printer may seem like a relic from the past, but just about every TV set, mobile device or laser printer still relies on creating images from a matrix of dots. They’re just smaller, and perhaps more colorful than the old Okidata Microline 320 from your youth.

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie
As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development.

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy
Crayon labels are kept pretty basic for a good reason. The colors really don’t need much of a description. Besides, kids don’t know what Periwinkle, Scarlet, or Aquamarine are. They just want to color between the lines in their book.

The Devastating Impact of Underwater Pressure: Making Shrunken Heads
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s so important to properly pressurize and depressurize a submarine, this image should explain it for you. What you’re looking at is three identical styrofoam heads, each of which has been exposed to a different depth pressure.

I Need This Gigantic Godzilla in My Life

I Need This Gigantic Godzilla in My Life
Do you like Godzilla? I mean do you REALLY, REALLY like Godzilla? Then you’re going to want to start saving your money for this epic collectible from the X-PLUS Gigantic series. This monstrous PVC kaiju figure measures in at a whopping 38.19″ long, and 18.5″ tall, and will look awesome on your desktop or bookshelf – assuming you have the space for it.

This Cardboard Samurai Armor Won’t Save Your Life
Now you can dress like a samurai without any of that bulky metal or leather armor to weigh you down. Yes, this is the first samurai armor I’ve ever seen that says “no glue or scissors required.” The Kacchu cardboard samurai armor is available in two styles: bright red armor based on famed warrior Sanada Yukimura’s iconic outfit, complete with reindeer horns, or a dark one inspired by Date Masamune’s.

The Inception Table Is a Mind Bender

The Inception Table Is a Mind Bender
Remember how mind-blowing the movie Inception was? This table is just as mind-blowing. It was made by Stelios Mousarris, a furniture designer in Cyprus. It was inspired by the movie and is just as weird. More specifically, it was inspired by the twists and turns in Christopher Nolan’s science fiction thriller.

NES Retro Subway Maps: DC Metroid
