Darth Vader Lightsaber Flashlight: Let the Dark Side Light Your Path

Darth Vader Lightsaber Flashlight: Let the Dark Side Light Your Path
The Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight is equipped with 4 LED lights and has various authentic sound effects. I guess that’s all a lightsaber can do in the hands of mere mortals. I’m also wondering if the red light is any good for illumination, or for adding a sense of dread on dark nights.

Megaman Vs. Metroid: Please Make This Official Nintendo!

Megaman Vs. Metroid: Please Make This Official Nintendo!
If I was asked what video game head-to-head I’d like to see, I’d probably say Sam Fisher against Solid Snake. Or all of the characters in Final Fantasy, villains included, against all the Suikoden characters. Mmmmm want.

Needle-Felted Jabba the Hutt: Awwwwwww

Needle-Felted Jabba the Hutt: Awwwwwww
How do you make a disgusting alien cute? Easy: just replace his slimy skin with wool. Oh and give him a “squezzly bunnybear.” Flickr pro/proud mom/Jedi Grand Needle Felter Kit Lane imagined that as a child, Zorba’s offspring wasn’t really an evil Hutt.

Widely acknowledged as the first giant robot ever to be featured in manga, Tetsujin 28-go (“Iron Man 28”) is finally going to live up to its Westernized name, Gigantor.

Hp Calculator iPhone Apps: Almost Worth Buying Just for Their Looks

Hp Calculator iPhone Apps: Almost Worth Buying Just for Their Looks
Introduced in the early 1980s, three models from HP’s much-loved 10c series calculators get a savvy transition to the 21st century with their iPhone app counterparts. The 12c and the 12c Platinum are both financial calculators, while the 15c – an out of production calculator so in demand 2nd hand units sell for as much as $400 bucks – is a high-end scientific calculator.

NES Controller Doorbell: I’D Hit That

NES Controller Doorbell: I’D Hit That
To whoever made this fun doorbell: wouldn’t it be more awesome if you had to punch in the Konami code before it rang? Requiring the code will also deter naughty neighbors who’ll no doubt be compelled to play with the doorbell.

LEGO Jesus Christ Blocks Evil From Entering Swedish Church
A group of churchgoers in Västerås, Sweden made a LEGO statue of Jesus Christ. According to the statue’s official blog, 10% of the surface blocks and all of the interior blocks were donated.

Zerg Cake is Disgustingly Accurate [Starcraft Bakery]

Zerg Cake is Disgustingly Accurate [Starcraft Bakery]
Gearfuse spotted this mind-blowingly detailed cake, featuring a budding Zerg base from the money printing military sci-fi RTS Starcraft. Everything you can expect from a Zerg base a minute into the game is there – mineral nodes,a gas geyser, a hatchery, drones, and a couple of larvae, all on top of a crunchy creep-like (we hope) crust.

Casio G Shock Data Bank Calculator Watch: Bully Proof

Casio G Shock Data Bank Calculator Watch: Bully Proof
Casio’s limited edition calculator watch is so nerdy it should be a character in The Big Bang Theory. Fortunately, it has been infused with G-Shock toughness, which somewhat offsets its bully magnet looks. Available in 4 nerdtastic colors, it has data storage capabilities and a calculator, as well as a currency converter and a calendar.

Pink Gundam: Cute or Stupid?

Pink Gundam: Cute or Stupid?
Here we go again. Pink Gundam with garish embellishments: cute or stupid? Does the existence of this no doubt unofficial model embarrass Giant Gundam? Or is it what the statue is looking for, the reason for his incessant head movements?

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky
I love the new Gamespy. Who else loves the new Gamespy! Before they were just another video game site, with previews, reviews, and tons of ads, except that they had Flintlocke. But now they have so much more to offer.

Star Trek Cakes Might Not Help You Live Long

Star Trek Cakes Might Not Help You Live Long
Neatorama recently posted a bunch of Star Trek cakes, which I assume would be the perfect food for your Star Trek marathons. They’re also unhealthy, but who cares right? All for the sake of awesome. Here’s one of them, a cute and miniature bridge scene on top of an otherwise ordinary base made by reality TV show “Ace of Cakes”: Here’s another one, a fairly large replica of the Enterprise made by European Cake Gallery.

Super Mario’S Brothers and Clones: 45 Takes on Mario (and Luigi)
The Design Inspiration cobbled together 45 artworks depicting the ever-popular Mario and his brother Luigi.
