This TrotBot was created by Ben Vagle. It is an 8-legged robot built out of LEGO Mindstorms and despite its looks, it uses a walking mechanism inspired by the gait of a galloping horse.
You can see it in action in the videos below.
If you ever played Super Mario Bros., you know the thrill of running across one of those question mark blocks. Bop Mario’s fist against that thing over and over and you never know how many coins or other goodies would come out.
One of the coolest things in Guardians of the Galaxy is the retro soundtrack that Peter Quill plays on an old ’80s Sony TPS-L2 Walkman. If you missed the ’80s, you can still get one without having to resort to eBay.
I remember back in the day I always had a Koozie to hold my Dr. Pepper because lukewarm soda suck. Most of the Koozies that I had growing up were foam affairs that my dad always confiscated for his beer.
What in the unholy hell of puppetry!? I won’t be getting any sleep tonight after seeing this bit of nightmare fuel – and neither will you. To prepare for their upcoming summer camp, the Canada Science and Technology Museum Science Mobile team removed a Tickle Me Elmo doll’s red fur and proceeded to tickle it.
What sick bastards!
Mickey Mouse has his own club, lots of movies, and a slew of cartoons to his name. He also has a hater in the form of a cat named Pete. If ol’ MIC-KEY MO-US-E ever gets tired of Pete’s shit and builds a mech to take him down, this is just the ticket.
Baron Julius von Brunk’s awesome Mecha Mouse has a flip-open compartment that is designed as a cockpit for the official Mickey minifig to fit inside of.
Labyrinth was one of those movies that I thought was creepy when I was young, but I watched it anyway. Puppets are weird. Now you can relive those creepy, weird moments from Jim Henson’s 1986 tour de force in board game form.
I’ve never heard of the band called “The Wackids” before, but by god are they awesome. These guys took a bunch of kids toy instruments and blasted out some awesome music in the form of a cover of the classic Rage Against the Machine tune Killing in the Name.
Growing up, I spent some time with at my grandfather’s house during the summer. There were no toys, only the stuff he liked to do. That meant cards, dominos, and copious amounts of beer. That meant while he was sitting under the tree out back getting snockered, I was setting up lines of dominoes to topple.
Most of the LEGO builds we see around here are buildings, creatures, robots, or maybe vehicles. What’s particularly rare are LEGO creations designed to look like plants. Even more exotic is a LEGO cactus.
This awesome custom LEGO build was created by Brother Steven, and it looks just like a desert cactus, complete with a flowering top, and lots of nasty thorns to keep any LEGO herbivores away.
I’ve never watched the Netflix series BoJack Horseman, but it looks really weird. If you’re a fan there are some new Funko POP! Action figures in the works that look pretty cool.
The series includes BoJack Horseman himself, along with Mr.
The latest Star Wars LEGO set is a cool one, though it’s a Star Wars Celebration exclusive. The LEGO Detention Block Rescue set recreates the classic scene from Episode IV in 220 pieces.
It has Luke and Han figures in their Stormtrooper disguises.
Deadpool is a snarky bastard and doesn’t mind talking about squeezing his ass into a red costume. I could definitely see Deadpool trying to blow bubbles using farts. Instructables contributor Britt Michelsen posted a step-by-step guide for turning one of those rude BUB-L Breezer toys into a Deadpool toy of farting, bubbly glory.
The base toy looks nothing like Deadpool so you have to use modeling clay, paint, primer spray, and elbow grease to make it work.
Fans of The Walking Dead will want this cool miniature that features Glenn and Negan together in the moments just before Lucille popped Glenn’s eye out. The statues look just like the actors from the series, and commemorate one of the last moments we saw a whole Glenn on the show.
The statue set will sell for $29.99(USD)
