Let’s face it, life as an action figure is hard. You just stand around all day, and occasionally somebody picks you up and bends your stiff joints to their whim. Their muscles have got to ache from all of that.
The Hangrees are a joyfully tasteless series of slime collectible, plop culture parody figures that are hungry for punny, satirical snacks. Just feed ‘em, shake ‘em, and excrete ‘em for slimy, poop-tastic results. Once the dookie has dropped, the slime can be stored in a resealable container for reuse.
Godzilla is one of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. We’ve seen the creature take all kinds of forms over the years, but I can say with a high degree of certainty that this is the first time I’ve seen Godzilla as an electric guitar.
When it comes to augmenting the human body with technology, video games and science fiction movies have us dreaming of giant mech-like exosuits, arm-mounted missile launchers and flamethrowers, and superhuman vision and hearing. What we’ve got for now is a robotic tail.
Are you less than 12 inches tall? Or do you just like tinier than normal stuff? Well good news, everyone! The fine folks at Firebox have got you covered with their selection of teensy-tiny versions of objects.
Do you like burritos? So do I. So it’s no wonder that this burrito-inspired blanket is making my mouth water. It looks just like the delicious, slightly charred dough from a flour tortilla, but human-sized. I’ve been to a place that sells burritos as big as your head, but never ones this big.
Over the years, the world of collectible figures has gotten more and more creative, playing with proportion, envisioning characters in cartoony forms, increasing their levels of detail and movement, and much more. And sometimes figures are just plain wackadoo, and I love them for that reason.
As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development.
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s so important to properly pressurize and depressurize a submarine, this image should explain it for you. What you’re looking at is three identical styrofoam heads, each of which has been exposed to a different depth pressure.
I’m always amazed when I see people playing bagpipes. That weird sack with pipes sticking out of it looks so complicated that I can’t believe anyone could master it. I’m just not musically gifted I guess.
The video games of old, like Super Mario Bros. and Tetris had some of the best music ever. But would we even recognize them if the music were played backwards? Listen and find out.
Musician Stemage created a digital album featuring several memorable NES game themes performed in reverse.
Whether you’re a karaoke fanatic or just like to sing in general, your neighbors probably don’t appreciate your voice nearly as much as you do. Well thanks to our friends in Japan, there’s a solution!
This ridiculous looking contraption is designed to let you sing as loud as you want, but without disturbing others around you.
Artis Benedetto Bufalino likes to make some pretty wild things out of vehicles. He’s transformed a construction digger into an aquarium, a Ford Mondeo into a pizza oven, a cement mixer into a disco ball, and both a car and a camper into swimming pools.
