In 1992, amateur paleontologist Stan Sacrison discovered the bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex in South Dakota. The resulting skeleton was named after Stan. Made of 199 bones, STAN is world famous for being one of the most complete specimens ever found.
I love it when geeks with lots of talent build replicas based on the insane weapons found in video games. Such is the case with a dude named Kirby Downey who built a replica of a gigantic machine gun from Destiny called the Thunderlord.
Firaxis Games is the developer behind Sid Meier’s Civilization III up to its most recent release, Civilization Beyond Earth. For the latter’s launch party, the studio asked employee Andy Clarke to create LEGO replicas of the game’s Worker unit.
I’ll admit to having never read or watched any of the One Piece manga and anime series. It really doesn’t matter because I am a sucker for sweet katana swords and have been way before The Walking Dead featured one so prominently.
Back in July, I talked about an awesome film-scale Serenity model that was on display from QMx. A lot of people got all hot and bothered at the thought of owning that model. If you were one of those who got excited, you can own your own now.
ThinkGeek put on its Armor Outpost cosplay and is selling an officially licensed life-size replica of the ShovelBlade, the weapon from the nostalgia nirvana that is Shovel Knight. The incredibly pixelated toy is made of two sticks and a diamond EVA foam and measures 27″ x 6.75″ x 0.75″.

Back in 2011 Nike released its official take on the MAG sneakers that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II. But those shoes were a limited edition and were auctioned off, which meant that for many of us they may as well have cost as much as a time machine.
If Industries – the folks behind the cool arcade coin slot belt buckles – are back with another set of geeky accessories. These ones look like the proximity mine and the remote mine, two of the weapons from the N64 shooter GoldenEye 007.
We now know Atlus as one of the last bastions of JRPGs, but it also made one of the worst games of all time: Friday the 13th for NES. Seriously, the only good thing I can say about the game is that it led to one of Angry Video Game Nerd’s funniest episodes.
I’ve only played paintball once before, from what I can tell the idea is to rent noobs the crappiest guns possible while the pros and course owners aim at their painful pellets with fully automatic guns shooting a zillion BPS.
ABB Robotics is one of the leading industrial robot suppliers in the world. The company is concerned that the current workforce don’t have the necessary skills needed for the “robotics and tech heavy world of the future.”
Diablo III fans will recognize this sword prop right away. It’s El’Druin – The Sword of Justice – and it was designed directly from the digital art files for the game. That means it looks like the one Tyrael uses to flay baddies in the game.
We usually see cosplays and replicas of fictional characters after they’ve become popular. But this astromech droid has been brought to life even if his show hasn’t aired yet.
