Growing up, my grandmother loved to knit me blankets with lots of space between the braids or whatever you call them in knitting circles. The thing I never understood is how is a blanket that has so much open space supposed to keep you warm?
If you really, reeeeally like One Piece, and have deep pockets, what may well be the ultimate collectible for the franchise has surfaced. There are two statues available to purchase and each are made of 24K gold and fashioned to look like Monkey D Luffy.
A LEGO fanatic by the name of aido k created this cool tribute to LEGO Space. It is a classic blue space figure created from a whole bunch of classic space figures. If you are going to build a large LEGO spaceman, you might as well make it from many small spaceman minifigs.
This is a render, but it’s still pretty damn cool.
You catch Pokémon with your phone? Pfft! This guy catches them by shooting them with a pumpgun. By this guy, I mean Joerg Sprave, owner of The Slingshot Channel. He created an awesome Pokémon pumpgun for real life Pokémon hunting.
It shoots Pokéballs and even has a mount for his smart phone that he uses to aim.
Some of the coolest stuff turns up on Kickstarter. I remember when the 3Doodler first showed up there a few years ago, I thought that was really cool but didn’t like the idea of expensive filaments to purchase to keep using the pen.
It seems like adults just rediscovered coloring books over the last year or so. I think lots of adults are just not wanting to admit that they were coloring in the kiddy books before all sorts of adult coloring books landed.
I took my kids to see Zootopia when it was in the theaters and found the film to be very funny and enjoyable. We even rented it again at home when it went on demand. To celebrate their love for the film, cosplayers Jannet “Incosplay” Vinogradova and Angela Bermudez recently dressed up as Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps respectively.
Ole Nick looks pretty great as a tall, buxom female with that red faux fur wig, but Bermudez absolutely steals the show with her Officer Hopps cosplay.
Check out this one-of-a-kind Star Wars X-Wing Fighter vehicle from Hot Wheels. It’s full size, mind you. Not a tiny toy. It is currently on display at San Diego Comic-Con.
Wow. Just wow. The only problem I see is that the thing probably cost more money than that most humans could ever afford, but that’s okay.
I mean, it doesn’t even have a working Astromech Droid and doesn’t even get off the ground anyway.
Good ole Kirby is coming to Japan, but you’ll be doing all the inhaling this time. That’s because Kirby will be coming to a chain of cafes, and he’s bringing along some tasty looking eats. These desserts look particularly appealing:
I’m not sure if that is a tomato flavored cupcake or not though.
We all need somewhere to hang our hats, robes, or backpacks. If you’re a Star Wars geek, the best way to hang anything are these Star Wars Lightsaber wall hooks. You get a pair of them and it looks like the sabers have slashed into your wall.
One blade is blue and the other is red with hilts based on Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader sabers.
Build-a-Bear Workshop is a place where I have spent more money than I want to even think about. If your kids (or you) are into stuffed animals and Star Wars, you will want to go by the mall and pick one of these up.
Roombas are pretty handy little robot vacuum cleaners. Even if they do do their job super slowly. But if you have ever wondered what a Roomba would look like on crack, check out this video. It is the fastest Roomba ever.
This previously broken Roomba vacuum robot was modified by Warusoneko.
I long ago left the old T-45 Power armor behind, and now schlep around the wasteland in by badass flamed out X-01 power armor. T-45 is for plebs. ThinkGeek has a sweet Fallout Power Helmet coin bank that will hold your quarters, but won’t hold caps because the slot is too thin.
It looks like it’s made of metal, but it’s actually painted vinyl.
For the first episode of the third season of “Super-Fan Builds” the folks at AWE went all out and created a couch shaped like Toothless from “Dragons: Race to the Edge”. They built it for a hardcore fan of How to Train Your Dragon.
We’ve seen our share of complicated clocks, but we’ve never seen anything like Felix Vorreiter’s FLUX 1440. This clock displays the time using a simple pulley system, and over 3,900 feet of white string.
The white string is covered in what looks like random marks, but they are anything but random.
