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.
Easter has come and gone and while celebrating with eggs and candy, you might have missed these awesome eggs painted by artist Barak Hardley. He spent over 150 hours painting them all up with images of celebrities and pop culture icons.
Some of my favorites are the Stranger Things kids, though one is missing.
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.
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.
Chess is a thinking man’s game. It means that to play it well, you’ve got to be all intellectual and smart and stuff. Even kings play it – with real people on their lawn. You have to have a classy chess set if you want to keep up appearances.
We have seen people make music using some strange instruments over the years. The use of hard drives as MIDI instruments to make music comes to mind. Now we have an orchestra, if you can call a bunch of dudes that bang on obsolete office equipment an orchestra.
Fans of Boba Fett all know how the bounty hunter meets his demise in Return of the Jedi. He gets ejected by a blinded Han Solo right into the maw of the Sarlacc where he will be digested for all eternity.
My Mamaw (that’s grandmother for you yankees out there) used to knit all the time. She was big on making blankets with yarn that had enough open space to be terrible at keeping you warm, and were itchy enough to drive you mad.
This barrel-shaped Legend of Zelda themed arcade cabinet is not only fun to play, but a great piece of home decor too. It comes from Redditor LetsbuildsomeShit. He is living up to his name big time with this awesome build.
This Raspberry Pi 3 / RetroPie-powered arcade machine is completely custom.
These days you can pay for things in all kinds of electronic ways, but if you still find yourself with a bunch of coins, here is a fun way to sort them.
The Q channel shows us how to make a coin sorting machine using just cardboard, a knife, a metal ruler, and some glue.
We like cosplay around here, despite the fact that I am not much for dressing up (I even shun pants). People who like to go to conferences like ComicCon or WonderCon are a bit more enthusiastic about getting dressed up than I am.
Check out this amazing Baby Groot, sculpted from chocolate. That’s the best kind of Groot if you ask me. Not only is this little excellently sculpted, but he’s probably delicious too.
He’s also holding the detonator for the nuclear bomb as seen in the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
Kids are super creative, wspecially when they have to be. What do you do when your mom won’t buy you a game console? If you are this kid, you build one for yourself.
Twitter user Ama-chan’s kid brother created this cardboard Nintendo Switch because their mother wouldn’t buy the real thing.
Back in grade school, we judged how well off you were by the size of the box of crayons you brought to class. If you had that giant 64-color box with the built in sharpener, your family clearly was rolling in dough.
A LEGO fanatic calling himself Nick Brick has taken Tracer’s pulse pistols right off the screen of Overwatch and made them into LEGO brick sculptures. The builds are very cool and look very much like the pistols Tracer uses in the game.
Each of the pistols has 1063 LEGO bricks in the build for a total of 2126 bricks for both pistols.
