If there’s one thing I learned from my mother, it’s that 250% of my body heat leaves through my head and I need to put a hat on or I’ll catch a death of cold. That said, I still don’t wear hats in the winter as much as I really should.
There are thousands upon thousands of Avengers collectibles on the market, but here are some that I had no idea existed. What you’re looking at are the officially-licensed Avengers pocket watches. The series includes eight different watches, made to celebrate some of the members of Marvel’s popular superhero team.
Bradford Exchange will offer up pocket watches with logo graphics for Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man, Falcon, and Hawkeye.
Power up your gadgets in the cutest way possible, with these adorable battery packs based on Marvel’s superheroes. They look a whole lot like Funko’s Dorbz figures, but each of these cartoony characters packs a 2,600 mAh battery inside.
Avengers assemble! For tea time. Make your next beverage service a truly patriotic and geeky experience with this cool Captain America Teapot. Nothing is more American than tea- wait, what? Tea is more of a British thing right?
This summer has been way too hot. If only you had a cool personal sized fan to help cool you down. Well, lucky for you, the First Avenger is also the coolest Avenger, thanks to this Captain America 3 USB Fan.
It looks like Captain America’s shield – especially when the blade is spinning.
If you think about it, the super soldier serum that turned a wimpy little guy into Captain America is really nothing more than a permanent steroid shot (on steroids). You can’t get your own super serum to avoid the gym like Cap did, but you can build your guns the old-fashioned way by hitting the weights.
You won’t have to use rusty old plain iron plates either, now that you can get these fancy Captain America weights that look like his shield.
The big movie release this weekend is Captain America: Civil War. I’m a fan of Marvel movies, but I am not a big fan of Captain America as he is played in the films. On the other hand, I am a fan of Iron Man, Spiderman, and some of the other characters in the film.
Console laptop expert Ed Zarick keeps pushing his modding skills. His latest finished casemods are based on the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. One is a Captain America-themed Xbox One laptop and the other is an Iron Man-themed PlayStation 4 laptop.
Back in the day, I watched a Captain America TV show and I don’t recall Captain America being cheesy in that show. I’m not a big fan of Steve Rogers in today’s Avengers for some reason, I guess he seems a bit cheesy to me and doesn’t fit with the kick-ass nature of the rest of the team.
In what seems like a belated April Fools’ cross-promotion, Marvel and Gillette made four concepts for funny super-powered razors based on Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Thor. Iron Man’s razor is the only one that you can arguably call practical, but all of them will probably kill you.
Let’s say you are dressed up like Captain America, however you lack the Cap’s cool shield. What can you do? Don’t fret. First, do you have a fan? Good. You’ll need one. This project could not be simpler.
This crafting project makes good use of what a fan looks like when it’s spinning.
I can think of no better way to celebrate your passion for Marvel’s superheroes than to make some tasty baked goodies in their form. That’s exactly what Flickr contributor Cindy Li did when she baked up this batch of delicious looking banana bread, baked in the shapes of Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Wolverine:
These are truly bananas, Cindy.
We’ve featured Dave Delisle’s geeky hockey jerseys a couple of times. It turns out he’s spun off his designs into a separate store, which he simply named Geeky Jerseys. The store sells limited edition hockey or baseball jerseys with themes inspired by video games, movies and tv shows.
As of this writing the Captain America and Batman hockey jerseys are the only ones fully stocked.
Fans of Marvel superheroes who want to take their favorite character with them on the road and jam out of their favorite tunes at the same time will want to check out these Marvel Rechargeable speakers that are at ThinkGeek.
Here’s a slick hack for makers. Instructables user TSJWang made a small radio transmitter that fits inside a Zippo case. He went to great lengths to ensure that his device still looks exactly like a lighter.
