The Penguin Bomb is a DIY origami sculpture that arrives as a flat package, but when you drop it on a hard surface, it turns itself into a fat little penguin. Hence the name.
This cleverly-designed toy was created by paper artist Haruki Nakamura.
Check out this fun series of building block cat sculptures from Hong-Kong-based company JEKCA, who makes single-stud bricks which are similar to LEGO. They are purr-fect.
These sculptures are fun for cat lovers. They are available as kits, and they come in various colors and positions.
We love to make LEGO builds around here, but when an aerospace engineer plays with LEGO, he makes them fly. I’m talking about engineer Adam Woodworth, who made his LEGO Space Shuttle lift off.
Set #1682, aka Space Shuttle Launch, was released way back in 1990.
Late last year, I talked a bit about the Super Nintendo World theme park that’s coming to Universal Studios Japan in 2020. Lest we forget they’re building the park, Universal and Nintendo have released a new teaser video to give us an idea of what to expect once it opens.
If you ever wanted to travel through sewer pipes and pick up coins, this will be the theme park for you.
They don’t show it in the movies, but the Galactic Empire, like the British Empire, actually loves tea. It is a little known fact that during the battle of Hoth, Stormtroopers were having a tea party in the back of those AT-ATs.
Not long ago we watched a video of a LEGO Porsche being strapped to a real crash test sled and smashed into an obstacle. The LEGO Porsche was thoroughly destroyed in the test. Now we have another LEGO car being crushed into blocky bits after being fired out of some sort of air cannon.
Beyond the Press loaded up their pneumatic cannon with a couple of different LEGO cars and sent them flying.
Ever since we went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, my daughter is all about Baby Groot. He’s apparently the most adorable thing ever. If you feel the same way, you might want this Baby Groot wooden cutting board.
This 15″ x 11.25″
You know that booze is gonna be good if the name has “Hell Water” in it. This is the officially licensed Hellboy ‘Hell Water’ cinnamon whiskey. It is made in collaboration between XXX Distillery and Dark Horse Comics.
A guitar and amp? Pffft! Real men play their electric guitar using Tesla coils. Musician and engineer Nabzim decided to attach his electric guitar to a handmade solid state Tesla coil using an audio interrupter schematic.
I have no idea what that means, but it’s very cool.
One of the things my dear old wife does that annoys me to no end is to spend half a movie messing with her phone, and then gets mad when I won’t recap everything she missed so she knows what is going on.
So you fancy yourself a Han Solo sort, huh? You are a rogue and a scoundrel, but what you lack is a Wookiee co-pilot for your very fast hunk of junk. Well, here is the next best thing the “Chewbelta,” a Chewbacca bandolier seatbelt cover.
Put it on the passenger side of your car so that every passenger becomes your trusted Wookiee sidekick.
The Princess Bride is one of the most classic of the ’80s movies out there. I harbor a secret fear they will try and remake it and ruin all that was good about the original like the new Ghostbusters did.
Way down in the deepest, darkest oceans, there are fish who glow to attract prey. The T-Rex didn’t need to glow to catch its dinner, but that would have been cool. Now you can own your own glowing T-Rex thanks this Tyrannosaurus Light.
The cast resin dino light is illuminated by a 7-watt bulb and glows appropriately along its belly when on.
Look at these slippers, they are creepy, cool, and weirdly ’80s. They are modeled after the ‘Ello worm from Labyrinth, Jim Henson’s classic 1980s fantasy. It seems like everytime I turn around there is some Labyrinth oddity out there.
Forget your fancy skateboard tricks. This board can actually shoot flames. Ok, it’s more of a flamedropper than a flamethrower, but the effect is super neat, sort of like the flame trails left behind by the DeLorean in Back to the Future.
If you have ever known someone who likes to hunt, odds are they have at least a couple animal heads hanging in their homes. You know, those severed heads with the beady eyes that follow you wherever you go.
