Ok, we have a new champion in the race to build the coolest AT-AT model ever.
Weighing in at a whopping 40lbs and measuring about 28″ tall, Supertrone’s handmade AT-AT sculpture is built from steel parts, all neatly welded together.

I really like this series of photos that shows us what all those Star Wars toys are up to after hours. Sure, keeping them in their boxes might preserve their resell value, but hey, toys need to have a life too!
These photos are the brainchild of the photographer Marker.
What could be cooler than playing Pac-Man on an arcade machine that was almost completely made up of LEGOs? Ben Fleskes of Portland, Oregon, built this amazing machine. The only thing is that it probably won’t stand up to the typical abuse that an arcade machine goes through.
You know what I mean.
This amazing LEGO vehicle by Peer Kreuger, called the Stilzkin EXT3 Bridge Launcher, is able to deploy its own bridges to cross small chasms.
The bridge itself has no servos and takes about a minute to be deployed.
This cool portable luggable Nintendo Wii mod can now be yours – assuming you win the auction.
The DIY Wii portable features a built-in 7-inch 16:9 LCD screen, and an integrated GameCube style controller. The modder who built it also installed the Wii sensor bar into the case of the system.
It may not be life-sized, but Bandai’s 1/12 RX-78-2 Gundam is still huge. It’s about 5 feet high and weighs about 77 lbs.; assembling it will surely be one hell of a weekend project.
As you can see, the Gundam comes equipped with equally gigantic accessories – a beam saber, a rifle and its iconic shield.
The RX-78-2’s head and arms are movable, making for awesome poses.
In the words of its creator, the Cthulhu Mythos Chess Set “feature indescribable forces of madness and the grotesque,” and “will strain the sanity of the stoutest soul.” I’m just trying to figure out which piece is what.
Star Wars geeks are getting older and it’s time to teach the next generation about the world of Jedi and Sith. This should be made a lot easier with the Return of the Jedi jungle gym, from Gym Dandy.
As you might have guessed, this crazy jungle gym is a relic from 1984, one that I would have loved to play with.
eBay seller fugayzie is selling this neat set of custom-made Donkey Kong action figures, complete with the iconic red steel bar and barrels. As you can see, fugayzie went for a realistic version of these classic video game characters.
Now that you’ve got an iMac, an iPhone and an iPad, you need yet another Apple wonder-gadget, don’t you? While this concept design for a timepiece isn’t actually from Apple, it’s cool enough that it could be.
Designed by Italy’s ADR Studio, the iWatch would feature a gorgeous aluminum body reminiscent of Apple’s other “i” devices.
I’m sure a lot of cosplayers out there would take a repulsor blast in the face to have a slick Iron Man or War Machine costume. While not impossible, building the full costume takes an insane amount of talent, time and materials.
I am a big sci-fi fan and like to read sci-fi and watch sci-fi flicks. Any fan of sci-fi or cool interior design will really appreciate these sweet lamps that Jason Dietz has built and will be showing off at the Maker Faire this month.
I probably couldn’t solve a Rubik’s cube in 25 minutes, let alone under a minute. However, this cool ‘bot can solve it in less than 25 seconds! Now how neat is that? Oh, by the way, it’s made out of LEGOs.
You read right, it takes this contraption 24.02
