Jaws x TUBBZ Rubber Duckies: For A Bloody Good Bathtime
Because bigger boats aren’t just going to need themselves, Numbskull Design is adding four Jaws characters to their TUBBZ line of rubber duckies.

I’ve already bought two – one for playing with and one for keeping mint in its packaging.

I never thought that someone would be a hardcore fan of Jabba the Hutt, but once again I’ve been reminded that there are all kinds of people in this world. Toy designer and maker Mighty Jabba not only has various collectibles of the Star Wars mob boss, but he also painstakingly designed, printed, and sculpted an anatomical figure of the menacing slug.

A concept artist going by the moniker Embertwist recently shared their latest creation on Reddit.

All-White Rubik’s Cube: Just as Hard as the Original

All-White Rubik’s Cube: Just as Hard as the Original
When I read “All-White Rubik’s Cube” I thought, finally, a Rubik’s Cube I’ll actually be able to solve. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with the All-White Rubik’s Cube, because each side has a different tactile surface to differentiate it from the others.

Voltron Castle of Lions PC Case Mod: Activate Interlock!
There are good ideas, and then there are great ideas. And modder Robdp82 building a gaming PC (mostly emulation with some light e-gaming) into a 1984 Voltron Castle of Lions playset transcends even a great idea, and we can only hope when aliens finally visit earth this is the first thing they see so they don’t just immediately death-ray us all.
