Look at this glorious line art. No that isn’t a new Rebel fighter from the coming Star Wars flick. This is a basic line art drawing of a Nintendo 64 controller. I spent many, many days with one of those in my hands playing Goldeneye.
Star Wars kids will absolutely love this X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer. It doesn’t actually hover, but it does have a motorized drivetrain. You just need a VFX artist to go around with your kids and erase the bottom as they drive along.
What is the deal with all the characters in the Alien franchise? They go into a dark, creepy room with alien eggs everywhere. Inevitably one of them starts to open, the character has to go stare straight inside, and BAM… facehugger.

Is a game of frisbee not high-tech enough for you? Well, Brookstone, is selling this VFO (Video Flying Object) with a 720P video camera for you to destroy. Okay, they say it’s “super rugged” but clearly you haven’t seen me throw a frisbee.
I think we can all agree that it often takes Superman-like strength and reserve to put up with the yahoos that work in your office. I think pretty much all offices are the same. You have the slacker, the mean bitch/bastard, the weird dude/dudette, and the one guy/gal that does all the work.
You haven’t really lived in Fallout 4 until you find yourself some Fusion Cores and some working T-60 power armor. With those items you are ready to stand toe-to-toe with the worst mutants and other enemies in the wasteland.

Some glorious bastard over on Reddit has cobbled together what might be the funniest fake LEGO kit ever. It’s called “Dead Obi-Wan Kenobi,” and it’s basically a cloak and lightsaber lying on the ground.
