Somehow, I’ve missed what apparently is a fad of having to find a Panda hidden amongst lots of other black and white characters. This time out, the panda is hidden amongst some geeky science fiction characters in the form of a slew of Stormtroopers of different types.

I like Batman well enough. I certainly watched the show in reruns during the summer growing up, and love the Christian Bale/Christopher Nolan franchise. Batman fans into DIY and making things with their hands might want to get some of these kits.
During August in Japan, Obon is celebrated. The idea is that the spirits of people’s ancestors return to this world. In order to welcome the spirits, people make little displays out of eggplants and cucumbers. So why not get geeky about it and make some Mad Max vehicles?
