Here Comes the Kool-Aid Man Funko POP! Figure!

Here Comes the Kool-Aid Man Funko POP! Figure!
A while back we found out that Funko was readying a new POP! figure based on the iconic Kool-Aid Man, but all we had was a terrible placeholder illustration of the character. Now, the actual figure is starting to turn up, and it looks awesome. The rotund kids’ drink mascot is perfect in Funko POP!

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick
Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me. I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Mug: That’s One Angry Mug

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Mug: That’s One Angry Mug
If you ever played any of the Crash Bandicoot games, you’re familiar with the masks that float around the game. The one that offers you help and makes that great “rutabaga” sound effect is called “Aku Aku,” while the bad guy boss is called “Uka Uka.”

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things
Have you ever wondered why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters? Perhaps they’re not getting enough Vitamin C? Or is it that the lenses of their helmets distort their vision?

Polaris Builds a Working Replica of an Apollo Lunar Rover
There have been lots of cool things going on to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 moon landing, but this might just be the coolest. Off-road vehicle maker Polaris Industries created a virtually perfect replica of the original NASA Lunar Rover Vehicle (LRV), which first appeared on the moon in 1971. Polaris teamed up with the U.S.

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug
I’m not sure what Cookie Monster did to deserve being skinned alive, but I’m guessing that he stole some chocolate chip cookies from these kids – and they were having none of that. Seriously, though, this Cookie Monster shag rug that turned up over on Instructables is awesome. It was designed by contributor Mikeasaurus (who I think should change his middle name to “Rex”), and despite its sheer awesomeness, is very simple – it’s just a layer of blue shag costume fur, with a couple of balls of yarn with buttons attached for eyeballs.

Stress Tardigrade Can Handle Whatever You Can Dish Out

Stress Tardigrade Can Handle Whatever You Can Dish Out
Tardigrades are one of the strangest creatures known to exist. These microscopic organisms – also known lovingly as “water bears” are best known for their incredible ability to survive just about anything. Apparently, they can survive extreme temperatures, complete dehydration, and even the vacuum of space.

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow
The dot-matrix printer may seem like a relic from the past, but just about every TV set, mobile device or laser printer still relies on creating images from a matrix of dots. They’re just smaller, and perhaps more colorful than the old Okidata Microline 320 from your youth.

NES Retro Subway Maps: DC Metroid

NES Retro Subway Maps: DC Metroid
Creative director Matthew Stevenson said that when they were kids, he and his brother were frustrated by the confusing maze that is Metroid. Recently the title’s pun with the DC Metro came to his mind, and with it his childhood frustration. 

Keep Your Pencils in a Shark

Keep Your Pencils in a Shark
Despite what the Discovery channel, JAWS, and Sharknado might have us thinking, most sharks are pretty decent creatures, and aren’t in the ocean just to chomp off your legs. They’re also very useful creatures, providing a home for your sushi, fruit salads, coffee and tea.

Pac-Man Toiletry Bag: Doppa Doppa Doppa

Pac-Man Toiletry Bag: Doppa Doppa Doppa
When you travel, you need a place to keep all your grooming and toiletry products organized so they don’t just fall out all over your clothing and spill everywhere. A toiletry bag, aka “dopp kit” is a must have, and I think I must have this one. This shiny black PVC bag from Balvi is embellished with the maze from the classic arcade game Pac-Man.

Raygun Nosehair Trimmer: Grooming Gun

Raygun Nosehair Trimmer: Grooming Gun
Why is it that the body insists on growing hairs where we don’t want them? I mean, sure facial hair can look good on a guy, but hairs inside of our noses and ears are just a nuisance.

Think the BBQ grill on your back deck is impressive? Get a load of this custom-built grilling station, which was built into the side of a jet engine. As a bonus, if this thing gets hit by a bird, you can just toss it on the grill and hit it with some barbeque sauce. The grill was built by the Delta Airlines TechOps team in Atlanta, Georgia, using scrap parts from a Pratt & Whitney PW2000 jet engine from a 757.
