With awesome kits like the Saturn V rocket and the Apollo 11 lunar lander, LEGO continues to give space geeks reasons to bust out their wallets. Now, thanks to a great design concept submitted by a LEGO Ideas contributor, we’re about to get another sweet LEGO space model.
Based on a design by Christophe Ruge (aka “XCLD”), this amazing LEGO creation lets you build a detailed model of the International Space Station.
The 864-piece kit (set number 21321) includes the ISS’ working laboratory and living quarters at its center, surrounded by eight double solar panel arrays, each of which can be tilted.
I was a big fan of the original Hellboy movies with Ron Perlman as our cigar-chomping red hero. But as much as I enjoyed that series, I’ve never delved deep into the comics, so I’m not too familiar with Hellgirl.
What is the deadliest statue ever? All of them, because they can fall and crush you. But one is even deadlier than the rest. This Knife Angel statue was built from over 100,000 knives which were confiscated by UK police.
I have a very soft spot in my heart for pixel art, having grown up in the 1980s with rudimentary 8-bit and 16-bit video games dominating my formative years. So I really love anything that encourages the creation of pixel-based designs.
With their big brains, eight tentacles, and lots of suckers, octopi are pretty amazing animals. But like most things with more than four legs, they can also look quite weird. If you think it would be cool to hang out with an octopus all the time, check out this crazy looking bag.
Designed and crafted by Russia’s KruKru Studio, the octopus purse has eight bendy tentacles embellished with rivets instead of suckers.
LEGO models can represent all kinds of different things, both imaginary and real. But this particular LEGO design takes on one of the more unpleasant sides of the real world – the seamy underbelly of society that is prison life.
Designed by LEGO fan GabKremo, this impressive maximum security prison model uses roughly 3000 bricks placed onto a 32×32 base panel.
Hey kids, what time is it? Better check the ping pong balls to find out! When turned off, this unique clock looks like a bunch of ping pong balls in a picture frame, but when activated, it turns into a bright and colorful digital clock.
Instructables contributor thomasj152 put this cool looking timepiece together by assembling a grid of 128 individual ping pong balls, with each of them backlit with an RGB LED from a strip light.
Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fun and inspired Christmas trees based on video games, science fiction and other pop culture memes. So I figured that this holiday season, I’d put together a compilation of some of my favorites of all time.
Are you the kind of person who eats at their desk and gets food all over their computer keyboard? Well, now you can have food on your keys 100% of the time, and without the pesky Cheetos’ dust and constant need for cleaning.
Created by artisan keycap maker Dwarf Factory, and exclusive to Drop, Foodie Keycaps look just like real food, only miniature, and in the shape of a key.
One of the more satisfying sights in the original Star Wars trilogy was watching Imperial TIE fighters get blown to smithereens by the Rebellion. But this awesome stained glass TIE fighter lamp is one that I’d never want to see in pieces.
This beautiful work of Star Wars fan art was handmade by Russian glass studio V&G Fantasy.
When Rick Sanchez first turned himself into a pickle, things didn’t go very well. But eventually, when he put his immobile body into a rat-based exoskeleton, at least he was able to get himself around. Now you can enjoy the flavor of Pickle Rick in your very own mouth, courtesy of Pringles.
From the image above, they just look like regular Pringles.
Inventor and madman Colin Furze has built some pretty wild stuff over the years. Among my favorites are his Star Wars-inspired projects, which so far have included a giant AT-ACT playhouse and a full-size TIE Silencer ships.
Not too long ago, I moved into a new decade of life, and am feeling a bit long in the tooth – especially after seeing how many candles were on my birthday cake. I suppose I might not have cared so much if the candles were as cool as these ones.
These fun pixel art candles are made using fused perler beads by Burrito Princess, and are the perfect way to decorate a cake or cupcakes for any geeky birthday celebrant.
Do you have trouble getting to sleep? No luck with Melatonin or Ambien? Well, here’s something that will surely get you some shut-eye – a gigantic Snorlax sleep lounger.
Created lovingly by Knot Again by Amina, this handmade Snorlax bed (aka the “Sleeping Monster”) is sure to lull to sleep anyone who dares to lay on its inviting and rotund belly.
