Coffee and video games don’t generally mix. After all, reaching down from your controller in the middle of a game to grab a sip usually results in a nasty mouth burn or hot coffee spilled all over the place.
The original Death Star may have had a fatal flaw, but it was still one of the most important and iconic symbols of the Star Wars universe. If you prefer to remember the Death Star as it was before it was blown to smithereens by Luke Skywalker, then check out this cool lighting fixture.
They don’t show it in the movies, but the Galactic Empire, like the British Empire, actually loves tea. It is a little known fact that during the battle of Hoth, Stormtroopers were having a tea party in the back of those AT-ATs.
If you like tea, and need something geeky to drink your warm beverage out of, here is just the ticket. It’s a teapot and mug set that looks like the Death Star. It’s fully-armed and operational, though it does have one fatal flaw which could be easily exploited by the Rebellion – it’s made from ceramics, so it could be destroyed without even having to find its exhaust port.
One of the coolest bad guys that I have seen in a superhero movie in the last few years was Ultron. He was as powerful as the superheroes that he battled. If The Avengers were able to kill Ultron, what would they do with him?
Fans of Attack on Titan can appreciate this big ceramic beer stein. It shows the moment when the Colossal Titan breaks through Wall Maria and changes history. The titan has his gross, muscular body on the front of your stein as you drink your beer.
It’s pretty rare that I eat eggs out of a cup – I usually have them scrambled, over easy or in an omelette or frittata. I just like saying fri-ta-ta. I may soon have to start going for some boiled eggs just so I can have a reason to buy these awesome ceramic egg cups.
This Game of Thrones Direwolf Sculpted Mug is for the Stark clan only. It has their house motto on the side, “Winter Is Coming” and holds 12-ounces of your favorite beverage. However, it has a surprise in the bottom when you finish chugging down that cup of hot chocolate to keep you warm up in Winterfell.
Shapeways seller Claudia Ng aka ShamefulSquid calls her flower pot “Succulent Monster”, but let’s call a Bulbasaur a Bulbasaur. Also I don’t want to sound like I’ve eaten Pokémon.
You can buy the planter from Claudia’s Shapeways shop for $49 (USD).
I love Space Invaders stuff, but there are probably plenty of people who would like its merchandise to be a bit more classy. Maybe a bit more old world. Well, for those fans, check out mudstuffing’s Etsy shop.
If there’s one thing geeks love as much as video games, it’s setting things on fire. And while these nerdy candles won’t give off the kind of a lightshow you might get from fireworks, they’re a nice way to bring a little mood lighting to your nerdy pad.
We’ve seen birdhouses that look like R2-D2 and C-3PO, but if your feathered friends lean towards the Dark Side – and are suckers for official Star Wars merch – forget about the droid nests and get this instead.
If you watch Adventure Time, you know that BMO is an incredibly versatile robot. He/She/It can function as a video game console, toaster, flashlight, alarm clock, music player, electrical outlet and more. And now, BMO can serve you a cup of tea.
This beautiful ceramic teapot was handmade by Etsy seller/Zelda fan/punk potter Lauren Russell. She made it lovingly using white earthenware clay then carefully glazed it with non-toxic glazes. And Link wouldn’t think twice about breaking it open for a chance of scoring a rupee.
