I long ago left the old T-45 Power armor behind, and now schlep around the wasteland in by badass flamed out X-01 power armor. T-45 is for plebs. ThinkGeek has a sweet Fallout Power Helmet coin bank that will hold your quarters, but won’t hold caps because the slot is too thin.
If you were Bruce Wayne back in 1966, you had to flip a switch located in the head of a William Shakespeare bust to get into the Batcave. It was a pretty sweet setup. Just flip the head, hit the switch and the bookcase opened to reveal the bat-pole entrance to the Batcave.
I am a big Predator fan. Last weekend I was trying to Watch Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. It sounds like such an awesome premise, and then the movie sucks balls. Like most of you, I still like the original Predator with Arnold the best.

ATMs and I don’t have the best of relationships. I once had my card eaten by the machine and I had to wait the whole night before their technician came to help me out. I’ve also been cheated out of a couple of bills and touched a wad of chewed-up gum someone stuck at the bottom of the money slot.
If you think about it, Han Solo frozen in carbonite was Boba Fett’s piggy bank. He turned him in to Jabba The Hutt for a tidy sum of money. Now you can be like Boba Fett and store your money in this Han Solo in Carbonite bank.

When I was much younger, my mom gave me a tin can with a coin slot on top. She instructed me to drop any spare change I had to save up for a rainy day. I examined the can up close and saw that it was actually a free piggy bank tin that was being given away by a local bank.
We’ve featured a lot of piggy banks and other coin storage devices over the years, but I think this one is the most high-tech yet.
