Mech Action Figure Looks Like a Drawing Come to Life

Mech Action Figure Looks Like a Drawing Come to Life
The figure you see here is like a cross between something you would see dawn in a comic book and a robot ripped from the MechWarrior video game I grew up playing. At first glance, you might think that this is a black and white line art drawing, but it is actually a 3D toy with a fantastic paintjob.

Dungeons & Dragons LEGO Mosaic is Epic

Dungeons & Dragons LEGO Mosaic is Epic
Growing up, my cousins, friends, and I played a lot of Dungeons & Dragons. I can remember us all pitching in and picking up a rulebook from a garage sale or something that was tattered but workable.

Computer Component Bugs: Wasteamorphosis

Computer Component Bugs: Wasteamorphosis
The words “computer” and “bug” often mean bad news when mentioned in the same sentence, but it’s not the case here. Artist Julie Alice Chappell’s Computer Component Bugs are sculptures of insect-like creatures that she makes out of discarded components and parts from obsolete gadgets.

I was checking out this weekend’s Midwest Gaming Classic in Brookfield, WI and amongst all of the pinball machines and classic arcade games, I stumbled onto some really great geeky artwork at One Man Surf Party’s booth.

LEGO Lonely Mountain: LEGalf the Grey

It’s been a little while since we saw a truly epic LEGO build. We are changing that right here and now. One glance at this and fans of The Hobbit will recognize Erebor – the Lonely Mountain, the dwarf stronghold.

Super Mario Bros. Intro Screen Built from 14,000 Toothpicks

Super Mario Bros. Intro Screen Built from 14,000 Toothpicks
Old school gamers who spent time playing Super Mario Bros. will recognize this screen without any thought. This was one of the hottest games back in the ’80s and anyone lucky enough to have a Nintendo played this thing all the time.

If you are the sort who is into collecting statues and action figures, check this one out. A new Batman Arkham Knight Statue has turned up, and it looks really cool. This isn’t the cartoon-like Batman of old, this is the black and badass version of Batman from the video games.

Star Wars and TMNT Wall Lights are Smashing

Star Wars and TMNT Wall Lights are Smashing
One of my favorite Star Wars characters has always been Boba Fett. If you are a Star Wars fan looking to decorate a geek cave, check out these wall sconces. It’s almost as if you captured the bounty hunter, lopped off his head, and mounted it on the wall.

mDrawBot 4-in-1 Drawing Robot : Deviant Artist

mDrawBot 4-in-1 Drawing Robot : Deviant Artist
If you love Evil Mad Scientist’s Eggbot, check out Makeblock’s mDrawBot. It’s a modular kit that you can assemble into one of four different forms, each suited to drawing on a particular surface. mEggbot draws on ellipsoidal surfaces just like Eggbot, mScara draws on horizontal surfaces, mSpider draws on vertical surfaces and mCar is a three-wheeled robot car that is essentially a mobile version of mScara.

Pray That These Praying Robots Don’t Kill Us

Pray That These Praying Robots Don’t Kill Us
Artist Kal Spelletich has created this series of strange life-size “praying robots”. What the heck is he doing? Surely he knows that humans are the ones that should be praying. Praying that robots don’t kill us all deader than dinosaurs.

Japanese Artist Makes Really Tiny Things

Japanese Artist Makes Really Tiny Things
A Japanese artist named Tomo Tanaka creates tiny works of art that are based on things you might see in everyday life. The scale he works on is 1/12 to 1/24, which is really tiny when you are talking about items that aren’t that large in full size.

Legend of Zelda 3D Shadowbox: Take This!

Legend of Zelda 3D Shadowbox: Take This!
Growing up, I had a real love/hate relationship with the Legend of Zelda. It was easily one of the coolest games out there at the time. It was also likely to frustrate me to no end.

DC Comics Hawkgirl Statue: Hawtgirl

DC Comics Hawkgirl Statue: Hawtgirl
I’ve often said that I never read comics growing up. It still surprises me just how many comic book super heroes there are that I have never heard of. If they weren’t on Saturday morning cartoons back in the day, I probably don’t know them.

Interactive 3D Installation Lets You Paint on the Artists: You Are the Canvas

Interactive 3D Installation Lets You Paint on the Artists: You Are the Canvas
New York University Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) students Rosalie Yu and Alon Chitayat came up with Skin Deep, an art installation that’s best described as a virtual form of body painting. They made 3D models of themselves then created a program that allowed people to draw on those models in real time.

Frank Miller Superman Sculpture Looks Shiny and Jacked

Frank Miller Superman Sculpture Looks Shiny and Jacked
I like Superman; he is probably my favorite superhero. After all he can fly, bullets bounce off him, he has heat rays shooting form his eyes, and can see through clothing. That last may be the best superpower 12 year-old-me could have hoped for.
